    Popular novelist Dan Jenkins is well known in the golf world for his column in Golf Digest. A modern classic among 20th-century sports novels, Dead Solid Perfect is Jenkins' hilarious send-up of professional golfers and the often ludicrous reality of life on the tour.

  • Smarter: The New Science of Building Brain Power

    Expanding upon one of the most-read New York Times Magazine features of 2012, Smarter penetrates the hot new field of intelligence research to reveal what researchers call a revolution in human intellectual abilities. Shattering decades of dogma, scientists began publishing studies in 2008 showing that "fluid intelligence" - the ability to learn, solve novel problems, and get to the heart of things - can be increased through training. But is it all just hype?

    "Interesting, albeit drawn out, listen."

    Some books are meant to entertain, others to inform. This informs, glad I 'listened. I may be a bit smarter from doing so. Or not, pending further research...

    Story

    One of the most talked-about books of the year, A Fine Balance captures all the cruelty and corruption, dignity and heroism, of India in 1975. It is an Oprah Book Club selection, and has won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in fiction, the Giller Prize, and the Commonwealth Writers Prize. Mistry "needs no infusion of magic realism to vivify the real. The real world, through his eyes, is magical," says The New York Times.

    Story

    "Life is a Fine Balance between hope and despair", and I found this book an excellent listen. It was well done, well read, and sits with me still now that I'm done. I highly recommend you take the chance and read it. You will not be disappointed.

    Throughout human history, certain drinks have done much more than just quench thirst. As Tom Standage relates with authority and charm, six of them have had a surprisingly pervasive influence on the course of history, becoming the defining drink during a pivotal historical period. A History of the World in 6 Glasses tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the 21st century through the lens of beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola.

    Stoker says: "Fun and Informative"
    "Unique quick read, fun facts"

    Story

    I love historical trivia connected to the present day life. This is purely informational, no story lines or characters, like a very interesting chapter in a history book. Caveat: I am a lover of all 6 glasses discussed, so each one i found interesting. I read this book glass by glass, listening to one chapter between other books i was reading. And, with a glass (or 2 or 3) of the highlighted beverage to toast the chapter. Would make a nice gift.
