there are elements of this book which are very interesting but to be honest there were times I was embarassed for Card. The writing is a little juvenile. It was almost like a child was telling the story at bedtime and you knew that this is not how the world works (in any time).
This was a short but sweet mini novel. Probably not worth the credit but certainly a great short listen.
Yes, there is so much information in this book
The writer's experience finding the best parts was fantastic
So much history I never knew
This story follows the Da Vinci Code formula quite closely. If this does not bother you, this is a very good story with very plausable science and solid history of Einstein's life. If you like science, you should love this book.
This is a classic and a great concept. However, I was waiting for the storey to develop and it never really did. The idea of the Dyson Sphere is fascinating and the SciFi was good.
This book and Blink (Gladwell), I believe are related. This book explains how to capture knowledge and Blink explains why it works.
This book lucidely explains why globalization works in a way that an Economic text could never do.
There are very few books that tell so much information in such a lucid way. This book is about one of the most important subjects in science and it is written in a way that is amazingly easy to understand. Quite an achievement.
This book is important. It gets at a subject often alluded to but never examined. Intuition is powerful but not well understood. This book explains how to use it at what time.
This funny and informative travel account lets you see Australia from his humorious eyes. Great listen!
