  • Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 27 mins)

    Story
    (947)

    Moneyball reveals a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of major league teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

  • Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting

    The secret behind France's astonishingly well-behaved children is here. When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, she doesn't aspire to become a "French parent". French parenting isn't a known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insist they aren't doing anything special. But French children are far better behaved and more in command of themselves than American kids....

    Would you listen to Bringing Up Bebe again? Why?

    Yes. Being a young parent myself in a foreign land this book introduces a different perspective to raising disciplined kids.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Reduce repetition ...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Bean saying


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

    nope. Due to repetitive concepts its best to listen in parts

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts?

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

    Yes absolutely. Christopher Hurt does an awesome job ..


    What other book might you compare Atlas Shrugged to and why?

    FountainHead.


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Hurt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes Fountainhead. Christopher's narration is remarkable. Same high standard as fountainhead.


    Any additional comments?

    Quality of recording is not great. There is quite a bit of background noise.

  • Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

    All decent parents want to do what's best for their children. What Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother reveals is that the Chinese just have a totally different idea of how to do that. Western parents try to respect their children's individuality, encouraging them to pursue their true passions and providing a nurturing environment. The Chinese believe that the best way to protect your children is by preparing them for the future and arming them with skills, strong work habits, and inner confidence.

    Diana - Audible says: "Surprisingly touching (and well-read)"
    "Excellent!!!"
    Overall

    This is a great listen. Amy Chua's narration is really touching. I finished this in a day.

    Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change—in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes’s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

    good content. neat narration. holds your attention till the end despite so much statistics and endocrinology.

    This book is boring. Plain and simple. Couple of good ideas drowned in a sea of repetition and not-so practical ideas.
