What is great about this book is how Susan Casey brings the oceans to life through the eyes of great surfers, scientists, and seafarers. Not a dull moment in the book. Kirsten Potter's narration was first rate.
Interesting story about the aircraft business in general and the development of the 747 in particular. Now I understand why the model 747 has been around so long, and the reasons for its many configurations. I'm just an infrequent flier, but still enjoyed the listen.
This is a great introduction for anybody who wants to start from scratch with Shakespeare. The courses are geared towards an assumption that the reader knows very little on the subject, which ultimately makes for a clear presentation.
The professor focuses on a handful of Shakespeare's plays, going over the stories and then illustrating critical analysis tools, and putting them to work. This is the best part-- you first learn how he is going to analyze the play, then observe that very analysis at work. The idea is that you can then delve into these plays on your own with these collected analysis tools.
In what continues to be an era of natural and man-made disasters, this book is a refreshing primer on how smart people are strengthening their communities, in an effort to be better prepared when bad things happen.
Very informative book about Tesla's life, providing a deep dive into his personal life, his work, and the world he lived in. Still some unanswered questions remaining, for reasons of national security so there isn't a clean wrap.
This is an area of history which I personally knew little about and had a hard time finding ways to learn about it.
The audiobook is a gold mine in this sense. The professor is eloquent, knowledgeable, and organizes the information in a way which it makes it all easy to understand and digest.
The style-- being a lecture-- is conversational, so I found much easier to listen to than a nonfiction book.
I didn't realize when I selected this book that the narrator is the guy I listen to almost every morning on NPR. David Green tells a great story here. It's a little weird listening to him in long-form, versus short form NPR. Nonetheless, his stories of his travels through Russia are fascinating.
Rapid listen to the views of one doctor. Much of it made sense to me. No new discoveries here, but a good reminder of what to keep doing and perhaps, what to start doing.
The riff on the A330 was a total waste of time. I then switched off the audiobook.
Quick and super listen where 43 shows his love for 41. While there is nothing new in this book, I found it wonderful to hear a son talk about the father he so admires. For me, hearing it in the words of a President makes it that much more special.
This book was super. It was a clear, concise, nicely paced account of how Forrest Pritchard struggled and ultimately succeeded at "fixing things." To understand what I mean by fixing things, you'll have to listen to the book.
