    In Particle Physics: A Very Short Introduction , best-selling author Frank Close provides a compelling and lively introduction to the fundamental particles that make up the universe. The book begins with a guide to what matter is made up of and how it evolved, and goes on to describe the fascinating and cutting-edge techniques used to study it.

    Overall

    Very interesting, but I found it difficult to keep up with the numbers, symbols and equations audibly. The quality of the reading and the subject are excellent - this is just one of those books that should be read.

    This is Ayn Rand's challenge to the prevalent philosophical doctrines of our time and the "atmosphere of guilt, of panic, of despair, of boredom, and of all-pervasive evasion" that they create. One of the most controversial figures on the intellectual scene, Ayn Rand was the proponent of a moral philosophy, an ethic of rational self-interest, that stands in sharp opposition to the ethics of altruism and self-sacrifice.

    Overall

    If you have read her novels, skip this book. If you have not read her novels, definitely skip this book. Either it will be a repetition of what you have already read/listened to, or it will be a spoiler of her excellent fiction. Her other non-fiction books are much more substantial.
