    In The Worst Hard Time, Timothy Egan put the environmental disaster of the Dust Bowl at the center of a rich history, told through characters he brought to indelible life. Now he performs the same alchemy with The Big Burn, the largest-ever forest fire in America, a tragedy that cemented Teddy Roosevelt's legacy.

    P. Bergh says: "A fascinating history of early Forest Service"
    "Superb Audio Book"
    Overall

    This is one of my all-time favorite audio books. The narration creates an alive and fascinating history. You may have to appreciate conservation or fire fighting to really love the book. There were many fascinating people that made up this history. The narration makes them seem real and compelling. There were many courageous men and women that created the start of conservation and survived this great fire.

  • The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine

    Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real-estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? Michael Lewis turns the inquiry on its head to create a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his number-one best-selling Liar’s Poker.

    Jay says: "Informative and Engaging"
    "Very Entertaining History"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. For those of us that guessed right but were too lazy to act, this book is great for pretending that we shorted the market. This was a very interesting insider view of the shorting of our country's greed and stupidity.
