    Story
    (861)

    A disease of unparalleled destructive force has sprung up almost simultaneously in every corner of the globe, all but destroying the human race. One survivor, strangely immune to the effects of the epidemic, ventures forward to experience a world without man. What he ultimately discovers will prove far more astonishing than anything he'd either dreaded or hoped for.

    V. Sharol says: "Thought provoking and entertaining"
    "An Old Favorite, Excellently Done"
    Overall

    I first read this book literally decades ago, and coming back to the story again reminded me of why I was so moved by it.
    Catastrophic disease now is even more plausible, and yet humankind has not changed. This book is very relevant to our time and worth the credit.

  • Equal Rites: Discworld #3

    "Early Pratchett, Finding his Character"
    Overall

    This is an early one of Pratchett's Discworld novels, and it seems that he hasn't yet hit his stride with the characters. The story is enjoyable and the reader does a fine job with the characters, despite the lack of depth.
    Still, it shows the development of Granny Weatherwax when compared to later novels and it is worth the listen.

  • Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 43 mins)

    Story
    (2088)

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

    Reney says: "Be careful with logical leaps"
    "Just a little Insight"
    Overall

    This book is not as good at The Tipping Point anad seems rushed, especially in comparison. There is a small amount of research discussed, some generalizations and nothing I found very profound. There was just a little bit of insight. Yes, we all make instant decisions - how can we make better ones? The book doesn't give much insight into that and so I was not impressed.

    The best financial planner Michelle Singletary ever knew was Big Mama, her grandmother. Big Mama raised Michelle and her four brothers and sisters on a salary that never reached more than $13,000 a year. Yet at her death, Big Mama owned her own home, had paid off a car loan, and had a beautiful collection of Sunday-go-to-meeting church hats and a savings account that supplemented her Social Security check and small pension. Most important, she had taught Michelle 7 Money Mantras for a Richer Life.

    Jon says: "7 Cheapness Chants"
    "Mostly Common Sense"
    Overall

    This book is not much more than conversational common sense. It is a small bit encouraging, not really inspiring and I found that I deleted it from the ipod after a single listen.
