    Ours is a time of revolutionary change that has no precedent in history. With the same passion he brought to the challenge of climate change, and with his decades of experience on the front lines of global policy, Al Gore surveys our planet’s beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast in the visionary tradition of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock and John Naisbitt’s Megatrends. In The Future, Gore identifies the emerging forces that are reshaping our world....

    Story

    I learned much from this book and listened to it a second time. Will probably even listen a third time. Interesting and thought provoking from start to finish. After hearing Al Gore speak to the Commonwealth Club, and now listening to his book, I have a greater respect and fondness for Mr. Gore. Intelligent, rational, and well researched content. I find it a shame that he was not given the opportunity to lead our country when he was willing to. The world would be a different one. Passionate, caring, down to earth, intelligent and a forward thinking person. If you choose to listen, it just might burst a few of your bubbles.

    The Divided Mind is the crowning achievement of Dr. John E. Sarno's long and successful career as a groundbreaking medical pioneer. While his earlier books dealt almost exclusively with musculoskeletal pain disorders, here Dr. Sarno addresses the entire spectrum of psychosomatic (mind-body) disorders.

    Story

    I found myself trying very hard to keep an open mind in this book. Just didn't seem credible. I listened to the entire book but I cannot tell you anything that was memorable. Perhaps I will try to listen to it again to see if I missed something, but probably not. There are far too many worthwhile things to listen to.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Story

    From start to finish, this book was fascinating to me. It read like a novel and I never for even one second was bored. The narrator is excellent in tone, pace and I couldn't have asked for better. I am almost through listening to it for a second time. There is so much to be learned here, as well as simply a wonderfully told story.

    Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

    I enjoyed the book from start to finish and listened to it twice. I gifted it to two other friends, one of which said it changed his life.

  • iWoz: How I Invented the Personal Computer and Had Fun Along the Way

    Before cell phones that fit in the palm of your hand and slim laptops that fit snugly into briefcases, computers were like strange, alien vending machines. They had cryptic switches, punch cards, and pages of encoded output. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen?

    Story

    Fascinating story: I enjoyed learning about Woz's upbringing, his development and interest in computers/technology, his college days, the creation of Apple, his relationship with Steve Jobs, and his personal life. My only disappointment was when the book ended! I wanted to hear more.

    His pure interest and love of technology very much comes through. Was fascinating to hear how it all started and kept building throughout the years. He truly is the one that revolutionized our computer technology, but is able to explain how he did this, in simple easy to understand terms.

    As he says in his book, Steve is not a writer by profession - His story is conversational, and written as he speaks. Those qualities only added to the story and didn't take anything away from how interesting I found it.

    My only slight issue was with the narration. The narrator's voice/volume would diminish at times with a rhythm. I could almost imagine (hear) that his head was moving from left to right while reading/narrating into a stationary microphone. Also, the narration was with an almost forced enthusiasm, as if reading a children's story to a toddler. I suppose this extreme is preferred over what it's opposite could be - a dull, droning voice.

    The book held my interest all the way through. I might listen to a second time. :)
