    Story
    (1325)

    In this irreverent and illuminating audiobook, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, chance, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we misunderstand the significance of everything from a casual conversation to a major financial setback. As a result, successes and failures in life are often attributed to clear and obvious causes, when in actuality they are more profoundly influenced by chance.

    "A bit dry like a text book."
    Overall

    I have never been a mathematically inclined person so all the probability talk, the adding and multiplying didn't interest me. I was looking forward to a more "human" approach to this subject.
    There were some interesting points made and a few highlights but the title suggested a "lighter" but still informative read. I felt it was more like listening to a text book.

    Story

    Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.

    "not bad"
    Overall

    A fun listen. He writes a lot like his father and I love that! Close to the ending of this story became a little silly but overall it was pretty fun. There were a few very frightening moments in the book that were great!! I love to be scared.

  • The Secret History of the World: As Laid Down by the Secret Societies

    Story
    (38)

    In this groundbreaking new work, Mark Booth embarks on an enthralling intellectual tour of our world's secret histories. Starting from a dangerous premise - that everything we've been taught about our world's past is corrupted, and that the stories put forward by the various cults and mystery schools throughout history are true - Booth produces nothing short of an alternate history of the past 3,000 years.

    Robin says: "A unique perspective"
    "not good"
    Overall

    This book was boring and pointless. Don't bother with it. Total waste of time.
