    The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change of diet can dramatically reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease.

    Story

    I really had a hard time staying with this one, especially for the first hour or so. I put it up for a month, and then came back to it. The up side, it has changed my life. It may have added ten or 20 years to it too. I have learned much from it, and I have been experimenting with the knowledge I have gained, and so far, the results are not tremendous… nothing like I hoped for, but unlike any other time in my life, there are indeed results. If only half of us took the Authors advice, I suspect we would not need a health care debate any more, nor would we have a financial crisis, but abounding excess of wealth.

    Born in shadow and kept from heads of state, there are some missions so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist. so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist. When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. Their goal: the complete and total collapse of the United States. With the CIA's intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists' network and prevent one of the biggest threats the U.S. has ever faced.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    naw... these books are formula writing and so predictable. I don't know why I keep listening to them... perhaps I just cant find anything better. or perhaps, though I don't want to admit it... I like hearing about the bad guy getting dead. I hate to have in me some thing that somehow likes violence.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brad Thor again?

    unfortunately, yes... I will probably listen to the whole series.


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

    yes, this one is perhaps a tenth of a percent better then the hand full I have already heard.


    Did Full Black inspire you to do anything?

    no

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Where does Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best book I have ever listened to on audible.com. I listened to it twice in a row.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen?

    Scott setting the record in the ultra distance run in Death Valley


    Which character – as performed by Fred Sanders – was your favorite?

    Jen Shelton, Bone Head Billy, The White Horse


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    after listening for a while, i cant help but drop the book, and hit the trail, and jog for hours. It made me laugh, cry and understand myself to a much deeper degree. We really are born to run.


    Any additional comments?

    if you run, you will love this book. if you dont, i think you will still find it great. I am biased. I run.

    There are 206 bones in the human body. Forensic anthropologists know them intimately, can read in them stories of brief or long lives and use them to reconstruct every kind of violent end. 206 Bones opens with Tempe regaining consciousness and discovering that she is in some kind of very small, very dark, very cold enclosed space. She is bound, hands to feet. Who wants Tempe dead, or at least out of the way, and why? Tempe begins slowly to reconstruct...

    Story

    I love the bones books. I have listened to them all. Like its tv counterpart, the down side; 1, the main character rarely or never has fulfilling relationships, or sex. 2. The stories have a similar plot. The good, the Author really draws you in. after reading one of her books, you feel that you are the main character, you feel that you have been where she has been, tasted what she has tasted and been hurt (without actually getting hurt). The science woven in is my favorite part, and much of it is probably the real kind of science, not sci fi. My other favorite part is the rich culture. The sometimes French phrases, or Spanish phrases, or the descriptions of a persons French sounding contrived. I generally only listen to a book once, but it has been about 6 months and I am lonely for a good novel, so, I am going to listen to it again starting today. Btw.. if you listen to it, you will be done in a day, because you will not be able to stop listening to it.

    This is the complete text of The Art of War, one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world. It has also been applied to business and managerial strategies. The tranaslaton, by Lionel Giles is considered one of the best available. This unabridged editon of The Art of War includes only the most essential translator's notes so that the words and thoughts of Sun Tzu may be easily understood.

    You got to hear it. Perhaps the book is just as simple as it sounds. But in my mind, I think the lessens are about how to repair my finances. It is a Master telling me how to defeat the enemy, (financial problems). Perhaps to some, it is just “how to kick you ass”. Perhaps others, how to defeat the enemy (where the enemy is the trouble with [fill in the blank]. It is also a curios piece. It also is quick and uses economy when composing a phrase. A lot of bang for the buck.

    Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires....The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning...along with the houses in which they were hidden. Montag enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for 10 years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames...never questioned anything until he met a 17-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.

    Story

    A book written about the future from the past... not the future, but what the future was imagined to be 50 yrs ago. Writing books about the future is risky because once the future happens, then the book can become irrelevant. I suppose by accident he sort of predicted the use of ear buds, big screen tv's, atms, water proof watches and the demise of newspapers. It would have been thrilling if those things were still in our future, but now, we are so used to those things, the only wow factor is that he predicted them, but perhaps they were inevitable. Overall, I had to force myself to continue on with it. after the story though, there was an interview with the Author, and that was great. He is a wise old man.
