    In this endlessly fascinating book, New Yorker columnist James Surowiecki explores a deceptively simple idea that has profound implications: large groups of people are smarter than an elite few, no matter how brilliant. Groups are better at solving problems, fostering innovation, coming to wise decisions, even predicting the future.

    G Barth says: "Very worthwhile listen!"
    "The Wisdom of Crowds"
    Overall

    A rare bird, this book lives up to its hype. The examples and breadth of subject matter is breathtaking. Surely this must have taken years to write. The breakdown of categories is a marvel. It has moved me to rethink a world of assumptions.

  • A Killing Frost

    Story

    The discovery of two teenage girls' bodies and a video of a snuff movie showing the death of one of the victims leaves Detective Inspector Jack Frost in a race against time before the killer can strike again.

    Loreen says: "This is a favorite"
    "Dark but funny and fun."
    Overall

    Jack Frost is, as far as I can tell, sui generis. He's apparently not handsome, he's a messy guy, he's not appreciated by his superiors, his intelect is downplayed, his relationships with subordinates is understated, and all sorts of other characteristics that are not found elsewhere. His humor is handled well and the humor is a relief from most mysteries. More from this author, please.
