    Where did the universe come from? What was there before it? What will the future bring? And finally, why is there something rather than nothing? Krauss’ answers to these and other timeless questions, in a wildly popular lecture on YouTube, has attracted almost a million viewers. One of the few prominent scientists to have actively crossed the chasm between science and popular culture, Krauss reveals that modern science is indeed addressing the question of why there is something rather than nothing—with surprising and fascinating results.

    What made the experience of listening to A Universe from Nothing the most enjoyable?

    In order to follow the narrator, you will need to be concentrated, the concepts presented in the book are simple only in appearance. I enjoyed the book and added to other books on the subject you can find on audible I believe I had a good introduction to the matter.


    What about Lawrence M. Krauss and Simon Vance ’s performance did you like?

    in some parts, the narration was a bit fast for me, but this of course is very personal and happened only a view times in the entire book.

    What did you love best about And the Mountains Echoed?

    Even if the book makes a lot of references to Afghanistan, the story is universal and will record every one something he has lived or seen. the rhythm of the book will take you on a trip you will not want to end.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    the narrators are very good, just let you guide by the voices and see the land scape, the protagonists......


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    strong book it will not leave you indifferent

  • The Greatest Trade Ever: How John Paulson Defied Wall Street and Made Financial History

    In 2006, hedge fund manager John Paulson realized something few others suspected--that the housing market and the value of subprime mortgages were grossly inflated and headed for a major fall. Paulson's background was in mergers and acquisitions, however, and he knew little about real estate or how to wager against housing. He had spent a career as an also-ran on Wall Street. But Paulson was convinced this was his chance to make his mark. He just wasn't sure how to do it....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Wonderful book to listen when you are in the car or have the will to relax. The story is easy and you just have to take it in..... the fun of it is that at the end of the day it is true and some had got it right a long time before the federal agencies and the fed decided to understand what was happening. this magical down turn in the economy so many are suffering of has been able to generate so much wealth for a view is astonishing and will et you wonder a lot on the reality of wall street....


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    if they made a film out of the book I would certainly go and see it.

    From the front lines of the battle against Islamic fundamentalism, a searing, unforgettable audiobook that captures the human essence of the greatest conflict of our time. Through the eyes of Dexter Filkins, the prize-winning New York Times correspondent, we witness the remarkable chain of events that began with the rise of the Taliban in the 1990s, continued with the attacks of 9/11, and moved on to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    In a world where we all understand that something went wrong, this book gives us an insight of the reasons and obliges us to wonder what are our responsibilities and ways of changing for the better our common future.
