    Fifty-six hard years after the events of The Machine Crusade, after the death of Serena Butler, the bloodiest decades of the Jihad take place. The human worlds begin to hope that the end of the centuries-long conflict with the thinking machines is finally in sight.

    Overall

    I was hesitant to start the first Dune book because it was kind of on the big side (over 23hrs) but HOOOOOOLY COW!!!! After having heard the first one, I immediately downloaded the two remaining books. Talk about crack for the ears. I listened to all three books in a row and now I am going through withdraw symptoms. I need more Dune books and I need them now dammit!!! Redwall is just not doing it for me after this series. Someone needs to tell Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson to get off of their lazy buts and start writing. As with the other two books, Scott Brick does an outstanding job reading. He kept my attention throughout all 75hrs of this series and that's because most people have trouble keeping my attention for more than 75 seconds.

  • Shortcut: How Analogies Reveal Connections, Spark Innovation, and Sell Our Greatest Ideas

    Analogies are far more complex than their SAT stereotype and lie at the very core of human cognition and creativity. Once we become aware of this, we start seeing them everywhere - in ads, apps, political debates, legal arguments, logos, and euphemisms, to name just a few. At their very best, analogies inspire new ways of thinking, enable invention, and motivate people to action. Unfortunately, not every analogy that rings true is true. That's why, at their worst, analogies can deceive, manipulate, or mislead us into disaster.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes with Caveats


    Have you listened to any of Sean Pratt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. However he did an excellent job on this book.
    i will consider reviewing other books he has read.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Shortcut?

    I have always used analogies when I explain things to people but I did not realize that they could analyzed so deeply. It will definitely help me better construct my analogies.


    Any additional comments?

    This book lacks a little balance. It is still worth listening too with a few caveats for Conservatives. If the author is to be believed analogies employed by conservatives are flawed. I do not think that the author realizes that he has based his analysis of conservative analogies on his political slant. Clearly he does not like Ted Cruz, corporations, Adam Smith and Pro Lifers.

  • Redwall: Redwall, Book 1

    When Redwall was published in 1987 it catapulted author Brian Jacques to international stardom. And small wonder! This enthralling tale is jam-packed with the things we long for in a great adventure: danger, laughter, hairbreadth escapes, tragedy, mystery, a touch of wonder, a truly despicable villain, and a hero we can take to heart.

    David says: "Two paws up from an initially skeptical listener"
    "A Cartoon for your ears"
    Overall

    The Characters are wonderful and the cast is truly top notch.

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Cynthia says: "Hang on to your Hat"
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    This book had my attention from beginning to end. Did not feel like 40 hours! Narrator is great.
