    Story
    (19)

    Of all the natural disasters that could befall us, only an Earth impact by a large comet or asteroid has the potential to end civilization in a single blow. Yet these near-Earth objects also offer tantalizing clues to our solar system's origins, and someday could even serve as stepping-stones for space exploration. In this book, Donald Yeomans introduces listeners to the science of near-Earth objects - its history, applications, and ongoing quest to find near-Earth objects before they find us.

    James C says: "Suffers from a lack of graphics"
    "Excellent introduction to asteroids/neos"

    What made the experience of listening to Near-Earth Objects the most enjoyable?

    This book provides a clear description of asteroids, near Earth objects, and the technology used to study them. It also documents what can be done in the event of a near Earth object that is on an impact trajectory to the Earth.

  • Foodist: Using Real Food and Real Science to Lose Weight Without Dieting

    Story

    Foodist is an approach that actually celebrates food while taking you through the nutrition and psychology involved in eating well to help you move beyond the daily obstacles and bad habits that keep the tasteless, empty, and unsatisfying food-like products on your plate. Losing weight no longer has to be about sacrifice, deprivation, and willpower, and food will turn from something you fight into something you can actually love again. As Darya writes, "You don't need a diet. You need an upgrade."

    Doha says: "Healthy lifestyle 101"
    "The "Foodist" is a fun viewpoint on how to eat."

    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."
    "The Facebook Effect"
    Overall

    This audiobook provides a fascinating and a detailed history of Facebook, discussions of its technology, and examples of how this communications media has engaged a global audience. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone who wants to learn about Facebook.
