    Forty years ago, Paul Theroux first went to Africa as a teacher in the Malawi bush. Now, nearing 60, he returns to travel by train, canoe, bus, and cattle truck from one end of Africa to the other. From Cairo to Cape Town, what he finds is recorded in the style that has stamped Theroux as a master of the travelogue. His curiosity and intelligent observations help create an unforgettable portrait of the varied land that is Africa today.

    "Excellent Adventure"
    Overall

    This is a wonderful Paul Theroux adventure, if you ever had a desire to go cross country in Africa this is the book for you. It is on par with the other recorded books of Paul's other/railway adventures (which seem to not be available recorded any more), he describes the locations, foods, smells, such that you feel that you are there with him.

  • Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook

    In the 10 years since his classic Kitchen Confidential first alerted us to the idiosyncrasies and lurking perils of eating out, much has changed for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores those changes, tracking Bourdain's strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-traveling professional eater and drinker, and even to fatherhood. Bourdain takes no prisoners as he dissects what he's seen.

    Andy says: "entertaining but not as good as kitchen conf."

    A fun listen, though sometimes I think he was just on a rant rather than story telling. I enjoy Mr. Bourdain's stories when he gets into them and there are some gems in this book. If you liked Kitchen Confidential, this is a decent follow-up.

    Throughout human history, certain drinks have done much more than just quench thirst. As Tom Standage relates with authority and charm, six of them have had a surprisingly pervasive influence on the course of history, becoming the defining drink during a pivotal historical period. A History of the World in 6 Glasses tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the 21st century through the lens of beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola.

    Stoker says: "Fun and Informative"

    When anyone can start a business (when everyone is running their career like a business), it begs a question. This is your one chance at life, you can have anything you want, what is worth doing? Most people don't know why they're doing what they're doing. They imitate others, go with the flow, and follow paths without making their own. They spend decades in pursuit of something that someone convinced them they should want, without realizing that it won't make them happy. Anything You Want is a manifesto about living life, appreciating enough, and doing what matters.

    Richard says: "Short and poignant"

    Where does Anything You Want rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I put this book at the top of my motivational/business listening. I have listened to it twice now and as an owner of a small main street business I find it inspiring. True things have changed in the economy since Derek's experiences yet many things haven't.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Anything You Want?

    There is good thinking material for anyone in his comments about growth and planning. Plan for the what ifs and know that any business plan goes out the window with the first customer.


    Which character – as performed by Derek Sivers – was your favorite?

    Derek Sivers does an excellent job reading his book. His voice is easily heard in the car while driving.

    In the third novel of this best-selling series, London investigator Maisie Dobbs faces grave danger as she returns to the site of her most painful WWI memories to resolve the mystery of a pilot's death.

    mary says: "please find someone else to narrate."
    "Another great listen"
    Overall

    I am enjoying the Maisie Dobbs series. This book is well written and up to par with the others. My only complaint is that the book down loaded in two parts that were not cohesive. The first part I am not sure started at the beginning of the book, but it did jump around and about half way through the story began to repeat. The second part seemed to be fine though it ended with nearly four hours left to go, which left me confused. On listening the story began to repeat, picking up in the middle of a chapter. This jumping around jumbled the story line a bit, but the book was still a good listen.

    Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.

    "Love It!"

    This is such a wonderful and funny book. Carol's sense of humor is, as always, most excellent. I laughed my way through the book. A great listen!
