    Few companies in history have ever been as successful and as admired as Google, the company that has transformed the Internet and become an indispensable part of our lives. How has Google done it? Veteran technology reporter Steven Levy was granted unprecedented access to the company, and in this revelatory book he takes listeners inside Google headquarters - the Googleplex - to explain how Google works.

    Where does In the Plex rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book not only tells the story of Google the writing seems to capture and convey the mood and sentiment of those portrayed as well. I liked the reading as well and felt entertained as well as educated. I learned a lot about the high tech world that I was unaware of, as well as quite a bit about Google, Apple, and corporate culture. A good book all in all and I have already recommended it to friends.

    A real-life thriller about the most tumultuous period in America's financial history by an acclaimed New York Times reporter. Andrew Ross Sorkin delivers the first true, behind-the-scenes, moment-by-moment account of how the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression developed into a global tsunami.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I liked the book. I'm one of those people that finds economics interesting. It was an interesting look into the lives of people that make decisions that can make or break global economies. It shows the deregulation the forced the hand of large investment firms to make bets against better judgement, and the ensuing panic. all in all a good read.

  • The Grapes of Wrath

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 5 mins)
    • By John Steinbeck

    At once naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeck’s, The Grapes of Wrath is perhaps the most American of American classics. Although it follows the movement of thousands of men and women and the transformation of an entire nation during the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s, The Grapes of Wrath is also the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, who are forced to travel west to the promised land of California.

    Dan Harlow says: "Almost more relevant now than when it was written"
    "An American Classic"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Especially in these times this part of history needs to be remembered, and this book tells a story we can't afford to forget.


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

    I liked the performance and found it easy to listen to.
