    The Ringworld is a landmark engineering achievement, a flat band 3-million-times the surface area of Earth, encircling a distant star. Home to trillions of inhabitants, not all of which are human, and host to amazing technological wonders, the Ringworld is unique in all of the universe.

    "where are books 2 & 3 from this series?"
    Overall

    This is book 4 in the Ringworld Series. I enjoyed Ringworld and thought this was the sequel, but quickly became lost when starting to listen to it. I did some research and found that the 2nd book is called "The Ringworld Engineers", and the 3rd is called "The Ringworld Throne". Unfortunately, these do not seem to be available on Audible. Not sure how to rate it since my issue is with Audible and not the book - so going with 3 stars.

    Over the years, as Warren Buffett's influence and affluence have grown, one thing has remained the same - his unpretentious, honest, and optimistic approach toward business and life. Now you can discover life's little secrets of success as revealed by the world┬┐s greatest investor.

    Andy says: "NOT worth it"
    "no useful information"
    Overall

    this book is primarily a bunch of hype about how great of a person Warren Buffett is. i don't disagree that he's an impressive person, but there is very little substance to this book. there's also a lot of information about his personal life. i guess if you like hearing details about famous people's lives you might enjoy this, but i didn't learn anything useful.

    Welcome to Ringworld, an intermediate step between Dyson Spheres and planets. The gravitational force created by a rotation on its axis of 770 miles per second means no need for a roof. Walls 1,000 miles high at each rim will let in the sun and prevent much air from escaping. Larry Niven's novel, Ringworld, is the winner of the 1970 Hugo Award for Best Novel, the 1970 Nebula Award for Best Novel, and the 1972 Ditmars, an Australian award for Best International Science Fiction.

    "great book"
    Overall

    really enjoyed listening to it. highly recommend if you like sci-fi. i like sci-fi but some of the books i have gotten lately make it really hard to suspend reality because they're just too far out there. this book was right on though. i plan on finding more by larry niven.

  • The Elephant and the Dragon: The Rise of India and China, and What It Means for All of Us

    Exotic India is as near as the voice answering an 800 number for one dollar an hour. Communist China is as close as the nearest Wal-Mart, its shelves full of goods made in Chinese factories. But India and China are vastly different nations, with opposing economic and political strategies - strategies we must understand to survive in the new global economy. The Elephant and the Dragon explains how these nations have spurred a new "gold rush", and what this will mean for the rest of the world.

    Best audiobook I've listened to so far. It was interesting and very informative.
