  • Cultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know

    In this forceful manifesto Professor E. D. Hirsch, Jr., argues that children in the United States are being deprived of the basic knowledge that would enable them to function in contemporary society. They lack cultural literacy: a grasp of background information that writers and speakers assume their audience already has.

    Marcus Vorwaller says: "Interesting Theory"
    "Don't Waste a Credit On This"
    Overall

    All that this book contains is a list of what "every American should know" without any details on any of those items. No joke, the whole book is just a list, droned out one item after the other. I feel like I got bamboozled.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    This book kept me interested and wanting more for the duration. An honest, captivating, and unflattering look at one of this centuries most influential men.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends-and his own soul-Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic...

    Lifelong Reader says: "Beyond disappointed"
    "NOOOOO!"
    Overall

    This is such a sub-par read compared to James Marsters. I think I'll be skipping a Dresden Files audiobook for the first time. Way to go Penguin Audio, way to go.
