    In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes his ultimate journey - into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It's a dazzling quest, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization.

    Overall

    At some point, about an hour in, I almost gave up on this audio book because it seemed to be dragging on. At the two hour mark I was hooked. And by the time I reached the end, I regretted not spending an extra credit for the much longer, unabridged version.

  • A Personal Odyssey

    Story

    Here is the gritty, powerful story of Thomas Sowell's life-long education in the school of hard knocks, a journey that took him from Harlem to the Marines, the Ivy League, and a career as a controversial writer, teacher, and economist in government and private industry. It is also the story of the dramatically changing times in which this personal odyssey took place.

    "Fascinating Story with Good Narration"
    Overall

    After reading the print version of Applied Economics, I was curious to know more about Thomas Sowell. This book did a great job of satisfying my curiosity. Though, maybe unintentional, the humor of Thomas Sowell had me laughing out loud many times throughout, which made this an especially easy listen. Humorous bits aside, this is an amazing story that shows what a GED (general equivalency diploma) and years of hard work might get you.

    Story

    When Eddie was 12 years old, all he wanted for Christmas was a bike. Although his life had gotten harder - and money tighter - since his father died and the family bakery closed...Eddie dreamed that somehow his mother would find a way to have his dream bike gleaming beside their modest Christmas tree that magical morning. What he got from her instead was a sweater. "A stupid, handmade, ugly sweater" that young Eddie left in a crumpled ball in the corner of his room.

    This was great!

    If you enjoy Glenn Beck on the radio, then you'll appreciate the fact this book was read by Glenn himself. The narration is perfect. I was glued to his story till the very end.

    I'm not the type to write a review, but, I feel this book has given me something. So, in the simple act of giving back I felt compelled to write a little something nice. My way of saying thanks.

    I don't think I'll ever forget this book.
