  • Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition

    In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell revolutionized the way we think about our food with the evidence that a whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest way to eat. Now, in Whole, he explains the science behind that evidence, the ways our current scientific paradigm ignores the fascinating complexity of the human body, and why, if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think we know about nutrition is wrong, our eating habits haven’t changed.

    What made the experience of listening to Whole the most enjoyable?

    Great Information that makes total sense. I wish their were some Medical Doctors who would read this before prescribing another pill.


    Any additional comments?

    Should be required reading before being given a Medical Degree.

    America's Angriest Trainer, Vinnie Tortorich, exposes the nasty underbelly of the fitness industry while getting you into the best shape of your life. For over 20 years, Vinnie has been Hollywood's go-to guy for celebrities and athletes looking to get fit fast. Now, in this hilarious and often R-rated memoir, he holds nothing back. What's the best piece of fitness equipment money can buy? What's the fastest way to lose weight: diet or exercise? Why are health clubs worse than used car lots? In Fitness Confidential, Vinnie tells all.

    What would have made Fitness Confidential better?

    Any Actual fitness or diet advice would have been nice. No Sugar No Grains, Lift free weights... That's IT !
    Two of the 4 Covers major selling points DON'T EXIST in the book

    NO Fitness Advice.

    His store does inspire.

    No Dirt, other than he hates all but private gyms and all trainers other than himself can't be trusted and are incompetent out only for money.

    And it is very confidential. He keeps all the useful information to himself


    How could the performance have been better?

    The author tries on many occasions to make the narration sound spontaneous with little anecdotes. It doesn't work. Bad Idea.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fitness Confidential?

    Tell the Truth.

    Its your standard Sports biography all about his life and how great he is. Standard " I was born in a log cabin" stuff and I did it all myself except for the help from some of the Top Doctors and endurance athletes Blah blah.


    Any additional comments?

    Its a good listen despite being totally misleading about the content.

  • Cannery Row

    Published in 1945, Cannery Row focuses on the acceptance of life as it is: both the exuberance of community and the loneliness of the individual. Drawing on his memories of the real inhabitants of Monterey, California, Steinbeck interweaves the stories of Doc, Henri, Mack and his boys, and the other characters in this world where only the fittest survive, to create a novel that is at once one of his most humorous and most poignant works.

    In Monterey, on the California coast, Sweet Thursday is what they call the day after Lousy Wednesday, which is one of those days that is just naturally bad. Returning to the scene of Cannery Row, the weedy lots and junk heaps and flophouses of Monterey, John Steinbeck once more brings to life the denizens of a netherworld of laughter and tears—from Fauna, new headmistress of the local brothel, to Hazel, a bum whose mother must have wanted a daughter.

    A Masterpiece of Science fiction. An imagination that comes along once in a generation and should be required reading in schools.

    I first read this book in 1984 and haven’t been able to wear a digital watch since.


    Any additional comments?

    I only with someone would release the original audiobooks Read by Adams himself. Wonderful, Stephen Fry will do as a second choice.

  • The Autobiography of Jack the Ripper

    This memoir was recently discovered and appears to have been written in the 1920s by someone who asserts that he was Jack the Ripper. This person is James Willoughby Carnac, and this memoir was written shortly before his death. It is an account of his entire life, including a few short months in 1888 when he became the murderer known to posterity as Jack the Ripper.

    Martin says: "Absolutely Fascinating"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    For a story supposedly written as a memoirs it real like a novel with a lot of holes on the story. Well written but hard to suspend disbelief and let the story take you.
