    Almost everything about our day-to-day lives - and the broader scheme of human culture - can be found on the Internet. But what is it physically? And where is it really? Our mental map of the network is as blank as the map of the ocean that Columbus carried on his first Atlantic voyage. The Internet, its material nuts and bolts, is an unexplored territory. Until now. In Tubes, Andrew Blum goes inside the Internet's physical infrastructure and flips on the lights, revealing a fresh look at the online world we think we know.

    Any additional comments?

    This book was interesting to a degree but it failed to deliver the real meat of the story of the Internet and it got a little dull in certain parts of the book.

    The largest known meteorite has been discovered, entombed in the earth for millions of years on a frigid, desolate island off the southern tip of Chile. At four thousand tons, this treasure seems impossible to move. New York billionaire Palmer Lloyd is determined to have this incredible find for his new museum. Stocking a cargo ship with the finest scientists and engineers, he builds a flawless expedition. But from the first approach to the meteorite, people begin to die....

    What did you love best about The Ice Limit?

    This is an extremely engaging story. Surely, this will be made into a movie. It has all of the elements of a thriller.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eli Glenn, as Palmer Lloyd said, can do anything.

  • Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

    Moneyball is a quest for something that money can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected by a brotherhood of baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, and physics professors. These numbers prove that the traditional measure of success for players and teams are fatally flawed. This information has been around for years, and nobody paid it any mind. And then came Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland A's.

    Steven says: "Best Audible Book Yet"
    "Period Piece but compelling."
    Overall

    This is an interesting listen, although the concept behind "Moneyball" hasn't stood the test of time as the Oakland A's are no longer winning much these days. Nevertheless, the story is interesting and delivered brilliantly by Michael Lewis.
