  • Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls

    Story
    (3059)

    From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new collection of essays taking his listeners on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences.

    What disappointed you about Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls?

    I have better things to do than to listen to a book which is well written but lacks any point. Made it through about 1 hour and saw that it was going nowhere, so I dropped it and am writing this review.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls?

    It is just a book about nothing... Rewrite the book to have a point.

    The threat posed by these weapons makes citizens fearful. Just as it seems the criminal element is going to be successful, Michael Miller comes of age. Michael is a young man with unusual abilities due to the fact he is the child of a human father and alien mother. Bipedal aliens visited the world in 2047 and Michael's mother reamained. Will Michael, aka Tiger-Man, be able to meeet this challenge and will his abilites be enough to offset the evil genius of a mad scientist and his devilsh henchman?

    What would have made Tiger-Man better?

    It is too poorly written that I can't begin to advise how to make it better... unrealistic human interaction and conversations.


    Has Tiger-Man turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Probably


    How could the performance have been better?

    She doesn't even annotate properly.


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't waste your credit with this.

    In his bravest and most challenging book yet, Seth Godin shows how we can thrive in an economy that rewards art, not compliance. He explains why true innovators focus on trust, remarkability, leadership, and stories that spread. And he makes a passionate argument for why you should be treating your work as art. Art is not a gene or a specific talent. It's an attitude, available to anyone who has a vision that others don't, and the guts to do something about it.

    What disappointed you about The Icarus Deception?

    After listening to a couple of hours I finally had to ask, what is your Point? Maybe for him it was a discovery that we are all pawns in the bigger scheme, but I've already heard this before in thousands of other books.


    What was most disappointing about Seth Godin’s story?

    and definitely doesn't get anywhere very fast.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I'm too afraid to read anymore and waste another minute to find out if there is anything redeeming about this book
