  • Four Fires

    The four fires in this story are passion, religion, warfare, and fire itself. While there are many more fires that drive the human spirit, love being perhaps the brightest flame of all, it is these four that have moulded us most as Australian people. The four fires give us our sense of place and, for better or for worse, shape our national character.

    Story

    The narrator for this book is awesome. The story is very imaginative and the characters come to life when given such good narration.

    In this inspiring and candid book, Jane Fonda, number-one best-selling author, actress, and workout pioneer, gives us a blueprint for living well and for making the most of life, especially the second half of it. Covering sex, love, food, fitness, self-understanding, spiritual and social growth, and your brain, Prime Time offers a vision for successful living and maturing, A to Z.

    Story

    I found this book inspiring (I'm 53) and was fascinated with getting to know Jane Fonda. She is very open and personal, and it is especially imitate hearing her story from her own voice. She gives a lot of detailed science and has done her homework well. It is a good book for anyone at "crossroads" in life. I am looking the 3rd act right in the eye, and with retirement coming soon, I found a lot of motivation to jump into my new life in a meaningful way. She gave a spiritual perspective close to mine, and I was very surprised to hear it from her. I use to "jump with Jane" in the 80's, and now I am listening to her to learn life philosophies. Fascinating.

    Story
    (441)

    When Barbara Kingsolver and her family move from suburban Arizona to rural Appalachia, they take on a new challenge: to spend a year on a locally-produced diet, paying close attention to the provenance of all they consume. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle follows the family through the first year of their experiment.

    Sydney says: "Eye opening"
    "This book inspired me"
    Overall

    This book speaks to the principles that I desire to live by. I did learn some, but mostly I was inspired. I'm far from acheiving my goals, but making an effort every day helps. I love Kingsolver's voice and enjoyed the "sidebar" comments from her daughter. It's sort of a documentary and a story. Well worth listening to. The accompanying web site has good recipes and info.

  • It's Not as Bad as You Think: Why Capitalism Trumps Fear and the Economy Will Thrive

    Even with the economy feeling a little bit better, there is a real fear that markets will stay down and things won't ever get back to normal. But a few brave voices say that this attitude is just too pessimistic.Capitalism has not failed. And it's not time to just give up - on free markets or a better tomorrow. History shows that every time the economy was thought to be done, worn out, finished, it bounced back. The economy is not as fragile as the pessimists think. In fact, things are already improving.

    Good information, well written, good narration. I wish the current administration would read this book as homework.
