  • The Jesus Dynasty: A New Historical Investigation of Jesus, His Royal Family, and the Birth of Christianity

    Story
    (12)

    Based on a careful analysis of the earliest Christian documents and recent archaeological discoveries, The Jesus Dynasty offers a bold new interpretation of the life of Jesus and the origins of Christianity. The story is surprising, controversial, and exciting as only a long-lost history can be when it is at last recovered.

    Daniel Bice says: "Provocative book"
    "excellent"
    Overall

    -As a newcomer to the "historical" Jesus, I found this audio book hard to put down.

    -Indeed, the authors' views come from a critical yet respectful reading of the new testament gospels.

    -I thought it was well read.

    Story
    (53)

    Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk, a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn't get a teaching job or a doctorate, became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos, the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom and the universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane.

    Overall

    I fully recommend the abridged version. The story is concise, yet it's highly cohesive and powerful.

    The content of this book is evenly split between the science and personality of Einstein.

    Awesome narration.

    "better books out there..."
    Overall

    -Indeed, the first part was pretty good. But by the last third, he seemed to be in a rush to pour out the information.

    -Indeed, familiarity with this subject is required to fully enjoy this book.

    To better understand the inner workings of our bodies and to trace the origins of many of today's most common diseases, we have to turn to unexpected sources: worms, flies, and even fish.

    -Awesome insight and evidence for evolution of human structures, organs, and molecular biology.
    -This book increased my understanding and awe of this living planet.

  • A Life Decoded: My Genome - My Life

    Story
    (16)

    Growing up in California, J. Craig Venter didn't appear to have much of a future. An unremarkable student, he nearly flunked out of high school. After being drafted into the army, he enlisted in the Navy and went to Vietnam, where the life-and-death struggles he encountered as a medic piqued his interest in science and medicine. After pursuing his advanced degrees, Venter quickly established himself as a brilliant and outspoken scientist.

    Roy says: "Take it with a Grain of Salt"
    "-fantastic"
    Overall

    -The storyline is classic: a horrifying vietnam experience motivates Venter to "live life to its fullest". Provides great insight into the personal motivations of a world class scientist.

    - Good balance of the "tabloid politics" with the hardcore science of sequencing the human genome. Note, prior genetics knowledge is not required, but it will definitely enrich the experience.

    -Also, I thought the Narration was excellent.
