    Shane Claiborne describes an authentic faith rooted in belief, action, and love, inviting us into a movement of the Spirit that begins inside each of us. He lives among the homeless, helps local kids with homework, and tries to resurrect the forgotten places of our world. Shane's message will comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable, but will also invite us into an irresistible revolution. His is a vision for ordinary radicals ready to change the world with little acts of love.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Find yourself as fascinated as I did, and you'll want to write a review for this book as well. As a testament of this books content and character, I'm writing a review for the first time for audible even though I've read (or listened to) hundreds of books and haven't ever before. I liked the authors self-disclosure in regards to aspects of the topic's raw nature.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Speaking professionally, this book had an organized though presentation. It also completely shocked me into truths on topics I didn't previously have any knowledge.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Without just saying "read this" which is what I was told when introduced to this book, I'd have to say his validity through personal experiences shared copiously throughout the book.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    His yearning for change in the main subject of reforming the readers faith was overly apparent in some parts of the book. If anything is negative, it's the depressing nature of the subject which should not default the author nor this book; only the simple minded entertainment value merely for the duration of a few minutes in one or two chapter beginnings.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Most important to note was the experience of the author for the purposes of this book. His experience is unparalleled when it comes to the true meaning of having faith.

  • Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder

    • UNABRIDGED (16 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Nassim Nicholas Taleb

    In The Black Swan Taleb outlined a problem, and in Antifragile he offers a definitive solution: how to gain from disorder and chaos while being protected from fragilities and adverse events. For what Taleb calls the "antifragile" is actually beyond the robust, because it benefits from shocks, uncertainty, and stressors, just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension. The antifragile needs disorder in order to survive and flourish. Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary, and proposes that things be built in an antifragile manner.

    What made the experience of listening to Antifragile the most enjoyable?

    Even if I had anything negative to say about this book (which I don't), those negative things would further draw your attention to this book!


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    There were a lot of comparisons to the markets of today I liked.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nero and Fat Tony's views of the current economic situation.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, it made me re-evaluate my thinking about the world and how I can better myself by living a less risky life by having the right KIND of risk.


    Any additional comments?

    The only negative thing I have to say is that the author promotes his profession as a writer more than I cared to hear.
