    Chris Anderson takes you to the front lines of a new industrial revolution as today’s entrepreneurs, using open source design and 3-D printing, bring manufacturing to the desktop. In an age of custom-fabricated, do-it-yourself product design and creation, the collective potential of a million garage tinkerers and enthusiasts is about to be unleashed, driving a resurgence of American manufacturing. A generation of "Makers" using the Web’s innovation model will help drive the next big wave in the global economy, as the new technologies of digital design and rapid prototyping gives everyone the power to invent.

    Americans call Niagara Falls a natural wonder, but the falls aren't very natural anymore. In fact, they are a study in artifice. Water diverted, riverbed reshaped, brink stabilized, and landscape redesigned, the falls are more a monument to man's meddling than to nature's strength.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Inventing Niagara to be better than the print version?

    Entertaining and rich with content.


    What other book might you compare Inventing Niagara to and why?

    Reminds me of the writings by Mary Roach (i.e. Packing for Mars).


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A tongue and cheek exploration through the sometime jaded sometimes glorious Niagara Falls.


    Any additional comments?

    It's good.

    In Physics of the Future, Michio Kaku—the New York Times best-selling author of Physics of the Impossible—gives us a stunning, provocative, and exhilarating vision of the coming century based on interviews with over 300 of the world’s top scientists who are already inventing the future in their labs. The result is the most authoritative and scientifically accurate description of revolutionary developments taking place....

    What made the experience of listening to Physics of the Future the most enjoyable?

    The book goes in depth to cover current and future good and bad-it leaves little out. Hang in there, it's worth it.


    Any additional comments?

    At times the book challenges with the darker side of the human condition. Ultimately, the message is an optimistic one. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Outliers to be better than the print version?

    not necessarily. I listen to the audio version so I can listen while doing other tasks.


    What about Malcolm Gladwell’s performance did you like?

    He was great!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    not important. I would rather have it all there.
