    Story

    In a masterful dual narrative that pits the heights of human ambition and achievement against the supremacy of nature, New York Times best-selling author Stephan Talty tells the story of a mighty ruler and a tiny microbe, antagonists whose struggle would shape the modern world.

    Overall

    To be honest this book contains more of a historical review of the plague that took part in Napoleons downfall. But the narrator is excellent, and the book is one that i found hard to put down. Great historical review of the march to Moscow.

    Story

    Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.

    Overall

    This is the single most powerful book I have every read in my life, and I can attribute my strength people say they admire in me to the lessons this book taught me. This audiobook version is beautifully read, and clear, giving credit to the strong messages in Frankl's work . For some that cannot relate to the concepts this book will be interesting, but for other who can apply the messages of suffering and pain to one's own situation's, this book can be powerful.

  • The Housing Boom and Bust

    Story

    There was no single, dramatic event that set the current financial crisis off. A whole series of very questionable decisions by many people, in many places, over a period of years, built up the pressures that led to a sudden collapse of the housing market and of financial institutions that began to fall like dominoes as a result of investing in securities based on housing prices. This book is designed to unravel the tangled threads of that story.

    Adolphe says: "Inciteful Non partisan blame"
    "waste!"
    Overall

    I listened to two chapters and grew tired of the single source of blame that is poorly constructed in the book.

    I will sum this book up very simply as EVERYTHING to do with the crash was because of TOO much government. It is bias dribble, that adds nothing to the debate to solve any problems. If you believe that extremes of left or right are the only solution, and there is no such thing as reviewing failed or flawed ideals, then enjoy.
