I love this book but have found most of the unabridged audiobooks of Moby Dick difficult to listen to. This is a long book with parts that are not exactly high drama - so Hootkins' "overacting" is really good at pulling us through those long arcs. It is certainly the best Moby Dick audiobook out there. I would go out on a limb and say it's actually one of the best audiobooks I've ever heard (my Audible library has over 300 books). I wish each every audiobook was this good.
This was interesting and I continued reading it even though I realized after a while that this was more of a lesson in history and geography then anything on the 'edge of physics'. I'll read the description a little more closely next time. For what it is, this is a good book. The narrator does a great job and it was an enjoyable book. I wouldn't recommend it though unless you get really jazzed by the history of science.
Godin tells it like it is and in a way that is so completely obvious that you wish you had thought of it. Of course, that's his genius, too. Great author, great book.
After Ehrman's last book, God's Problem, I was worried that his work had lost its usual rigor and objectivity. I am happy to say that Ehrman is back in Jesus, Interrupted. This is a concise, objective view of how different authors of the New Testament differ on fundamental issues and how we are left to decide for ourselves how to reconcile these discrepancies. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has read the Bible and thinks they really know it well. This book will open your eyes to how little you actually know.
I tend to like audiobooks read by the authors because you get a sense of the author's passion for the topic. This was no exception. This is great introduction for beginners as well as an excellent way to get a refresher course for those that may have been away from trading for a few years.
My only negative comment is that each chapter ends with what is effectively an advertisement for signing up on their website for fee-based newsletters where you can learn more. I am actually a subscriber to one of their newsletters but I could have done without the ads. After all, I've already paid for the book.
