    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of In Defense of Food?

    I didn't realize nutrition research was so political. The best line in the book is,


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator read it like it was as novel. A little too much drama for the subject matter.


    Any additional comments?

    I have re-evaluated the way I eat after hearing this book. I feel I am eating healthier now.

    Charlie Gordon knows that he isn't very bright. At 32, he mops floors in a bakery and earns just enough to get by. Three evenings a week, he studies at a center for mentally challenged adults. But all of this is about to change for Charlie. As part of a daring experiment, doctors are going to perform surgery on Charlie's brain. They hope the operation and special medication will increase his intelligence, just as it has for the laboratory mouse, Algernon.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Still as powerful and meaningful as when I read it in high school. An opportunity to reflect on your life and remember what is important.


    What about Jeff Woodman’s performance did you like?

    Empathetic voice.

    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    Richard Delman says: "Mr. Coben has gotten waaaay too popular."
    "Great Story"
