  • The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 20 mins)
    • By Nassim Nicholas Taleb
    • Narrated By David Chandler

    Maverick thinker Nassim Nicholas Taleb had an illustrious career on Wall Street before turning his focus to his black swan theory. Not all swans are white, and not all events, no matter what the experts think, are predictable. Taleb shows that black swans, like 9/11, cannot be foreseen and have an immeasurable impact on the world.

    Kenneth says: "Brilliant, Obnoxious, Narcissistic, Brilliant"

    The premise of the book is interesting in the fact that the author simply points out that things are unpredictable. The problem is the author, spends soo much time promoting himself and quoting other books, it gets old very fast!!! The author wants to do is quote French phases!!! PASS ON THIS ONE!

  • Bold: How to Go Big, Make Bank, and Better the World

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Peter H. Diamandis, Steven Kotler
    • Narrated By Steven Kotler

    Bold is a radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools to create extraordinary wealth while also positively impacting the lives of billions.

    Sean says: "The Best Book for Exponential Entrepreneurs"
    "this book was not nearly as good as Abundance"

    While, I enjoyed the book after a while it got was redundant. Read Abundance and skip this one. Just my opinion..

  • Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 29 mins)
    • By Bill Nye
    • Narrated By Bill Nye
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Sparked by a provocative comment to last fall, and fueled by a highly controversial debate with Creation Museum curator Ken Ham, Bill Nye's campaign to confront the scientific shortcoming of creationism has exploded in just a few months into a national crusade.

    Bryan says: "Inspiring"

    I thought it was decent, just a little slow moving than I expect from Bill. It is worth your time.

  • The Case for a Creator

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 43 mins)
    • By Lee Strobel
    • Narrated By Lee Strobel

    Lee Strobel became convinced that God was outmoded. Today science is supports the conclusion that the universe was intelligently designed. Darwinism has faltered in the face of facts and hard reason. Science definitely gives faith a boost as new findings emerge about the complexity of our universe. Strobel re-examines the theories that once led him away from God. You'll encounter discoveries from cosmology, DNA research, and human consciousness that present evidence in The Case for a Creator.

    Alan Rither says: "Excellent Summary of Apologetics"
    "Interesting book but...."

    If we are supposed to believe that a creator created us and it couldn???t happen naturally then why are we sitting here watching our universe expand everyday NATURALLY? We are seeing new solar systems and planets created all the time. It amazes me that soo many smart people think that we are sooooo important in the universe. There are 6.7 bln people on the earth, with 77 mln new people being born each year. If each life and action a person takes are soo important to the creator then why would he need sooo many of us? Why would he create dinosaurs and other animals like us (Neanderthal) just to wipe them off the earth???? If he is doing this create / destroy strategy why shouldn't we believe that at some point he will destroy us and replace us with a better version??? We are supposed to go against all this logic due to the fact somebody 2000 years ago said someone talked to them about GOD? Really, in all these years God wants us to do certain things, and he can???t even come down and tell us more to our face more frequently, we have to hear it through ancient made up writing? We are nothing more than SMART ANTS I say!!
