    Based directly on Frank Herbert's final outline, which lay hidden in two safe-deposit boxes for a decade, Sandworms of Dune will answer the urgent questions Dune fans have been debating for two decades: the origin of the Honored Matres, the tantalizing future of the planet Arrakis, the final revelation of the Kwisatz Haderach, and the resolution to the war between Man and Machine.

    "A fitting Tribute"
    Overall

    As a completely addicted Dunaholic, I believe that Frank Herbert would highly approve of each of the books that Brian and Kevin have provided we readers who started the journey years ago. Sandworms of Dune brings the grand saga to it's final conclusion. I am sad there will be no more Dune stories, but I'm happy to have had the opportunity to participate...

  • Imagine: How Creativity Works

    Story
    (550)

    From the best-selling author of How We Decide comes a sparkling and revelatory look at the new science of creativity. Shattering the myth of muses, higher powers, even creative “types”, Jonah Lehrer demonstrates that creativity is not a single gift possessed by the lucky few. It’s a variety of distinct thought processes that we can all learn to use more effectively. Lehrer reveals the importance of embracing the rut, thinking like a child, daydreaming productively, and adopting an outsider’s perspective.

  • Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution - and How It Can Renew America

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs)

    (235)

    Friedman brings a fresh outlook to the crises of destabilizing climate change and rising competition for energy - both of which could poison our world if we do not act quickly and collectively. His argument speaks to all of us who are concerned about the state of America in the global future.

    "Denial No More"
    Overall

    Whether or not you buy all of the Global Warming controversy, there is no denying the interconnection of dirty fuels and our problems in the Middle East, Russia, and Venezuela. Furthermore, how we solve the clean fuel problem probably provides the greatest opportunity for U.S. capitalism to reassert itself both economically and morally. Thomas Freidman, once again, has the vision to pull many threads together with convincing research and data, and to see the really big picture.

  • Clapton: The Autobiography

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 35 mins)

    Eric Clapton is far more than a rock star. Like Dylan and McCartney, he is an icon and a living legend. He has sold tens of millions of records, played sell-out concerts all over the world, and been central to the significant musical developments of his era. His guitar playing has seen him hailed as "God". Now, for the first time, Eric tells the story of his personal and professional journeys in this pungent, witty, and painfully honest autobiography.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Very enjoyable"
    "A Fellow Traveler on the Journey to Recovery"
    Overall

    As a recovering alcholic, this autobiography is right on the money. The path to the bottom is always the same. This is an incredibly honest book; not for the timid.
