    Story

    In the market for a home, but don't know where to start? Not to worry! From financing, mortgages, and credit scores, to closing the deal, best-selling real-estate authors Eric Tyson and Ray Brown walk you step by step through the entire home-buying process.

    "Good, but not great"
    Overall

    It gives you phone numbers to call, checklist questions and financial equations to apply to your situation. It covers things throughly, but doesn't seem to cover everything that it could. While it wasn't as insightful and helpful as I had hoped, I don't feel it was a waste of money.

    The first reader's voice is somewhat dry, while the second reader's voice is more tolerable.

  • The Science of War: Weapons, A ScientificAmerican.com Special Online Issue

    Story

    This ScientificAmerican.com special report covers the development and spread of weapons. You'll hear how ancient weapons worked; about the growing concern of the proliferation of submarines and fast warp drives in subs; the threats posed by bio-weapons and land mines, and the future of non-lethal weapons.

    The narrator reads a bit too fast for my taste. And while the first writing wasn't all that interesting to me, the writings after that about submarines, landmines, biological warfare, etc... were.

    Zero - infinity's twin - is not like other numbers. It is both nothing and everything. Science journalist Charles Seife takes a concise and appealing look at the strangest number in the universe and its continuing role as one of the great paradoxes of human thought.

    Overall

    An interesting blend of number history, provoking examples and detailed explanations.

    My only problem is with his voice. It's not bad, just something about it that I don't care for. Kind of sounds like a really smart Speak-N-Spell toy :\
