    In little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with 500 million users. It is one of the fastest growing companies in history, an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects, even becoming instrumental in political protests from Colombia to Iran.

    Kenneth says: "Great history, poor analysis. TERRIBLE recording."
    "Left my ears wet with narator's mouth"
    Overall

    Great book and author, needs a better audio recording. I've heard worse on Audible, but it makes it difficult to listen to at times.

    Why does the cinema have the power to move the heart, stimulate the mind, and dazzle the imagination? How did the art of film develop from its origins to the present day? This course covers the history and aesthetics of the movies. It traces the experiments and innovations that gave rise to the modern cinema, developing a vocabulary that helps explain the variety of choices filmmakers make when they construct shots and edit them together.

    ESK says: "Educational! But ...the mike's too close!"
    "Great, but offensive sound throughout"
    Overall

    Great author and book, but if you're listening whith an ipod and you find drinking, cotten mouth and swalling offensive, you're going to have a hard time. How could such a good book receive such a poor recording?
