    Story
    (249)

    In this riveting and surprising personal history, John Lithgow shares a backstage view of his own struggle, crisis, and discovery, revealing the early life and career that took place out of the public eye. Above all Lithgow’s memoir is a tribute to his most important influence: his father, Arthur Lithgow, who, as an actor, director, producer, and great lover of Shakespeare, brought theater to John’s boyhood. From bedtime stories to Arthur’s illustrious productions, performance and storytelling were constant and cherished parts of family life.

    Diane Havens says: "Superb"
    "Another outstanding performance by Lithgow"

    Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO, ranked eighth on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business - has become one of America's most galvanizing leaders, and an icon for millions of women juggling work and family. In Lean In, she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with it at the highest levels throughout their lives.

    Claudia says: "Make your life count - no matter what you do"
    "You can see the light at the end of the tunnel."

    Would you listen to Lean In again? Why?

    Possibly, but I did send it to my sons and daughters and nieces. It really shows the way to a better work place.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lean In?

    The women who got to the top because of all the pioneers before her took the time to say. "the view from up here is great, and you need to take a leadership role".... to make sure not only you, but your peers and your daughters and grand daughters continue to build the momentum to equality in the work place.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Sharing that some nerd named his project after her "the whale".


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

    Not really. Some of the ideas have to stew. And I don't agree that you can have perfect children, even if that is all you spend your life's work on.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend that if you're on facebook- Friend Lean in.org or what every she has set up. This is a true gift that a person who is running a very important company at this time in our history, would take the time to salvage the attempt to address this issue by her mentor Larry Suimmers, when he was at Harvard and he was run over by a Mack truck. Summers obviously picked the right person to mentor.

    Worm: The First Digital World War tells the story of the Conficker worm, a potentially devastating piece of malware that has baffled experts and infected more than twelve million computers worldwide. When Conficker was unleashed in November 2008, cybersecurity experts did not know what to make of it. Exploiting security flaws in Microsoft Windows, it grew at an astonishingly rapid rate, infecting millions of computers around the world within weeks.

    Julie says: "Clear, Concise Story of the Conficker Worm"
    "Bowden can make computer security interesting."

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

    Mark brought the history of the internet and computing together in a way the set the stage for the future of this technology. Both Good and Bad.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Worm?

    I really enjoyed how it is still all about people, and institutions and hardware and choices that were made that had unintended consequences.


    What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lane told the story in a way that made it fit together. You could tell what was important, what was interesting and what was background.


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

    Just when you thought it was safe to go back
