    Sebastian Seung, a dynamic professor at MIT, is on a quest to discover the biological basis of identity. He believes it lies in the pattern of connections between the brain’s neurons, which change slowly over time as we learn and grow. The connectome, as it’s called, is where our genetic inheritance intersects with our life experience. It’s where nature meets nurture. Seung introduces us to the dedicated researchers who are mapping the brain’s connections, neuron by neuron, synapse by synapse.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Is a book for researchers on brain development. I want to understand the main principles of conectome, but what I found was dissapointed.


    What was most disappointing about Sebastian Seung’s story?

    I think too much of scientific vocabulary and arguments related to it. But the use of Jennifer Aniston as an example is the worst part of the book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Great narration, some cool examples, but few contribution to understand clearly the subject of study.

    When you get married, you expect your relationship to be a partnership in which you make decisions and face the world together, united. But often a husband's perspective and a wife's perspective on the same issue can be very different and unity in decision making can be tough.

  • David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

    In David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks. Gladwell begins with the real story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy those many years ago.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe this book is could be a good one for newcomers of Gladwell reading, the history of Goliath is very attractive and give a good entrance of the whole story on the book. This author usually links common life problems with wisdom and life lessons. This was not the case, the book has isolated examples that did not match with the opening history, that is the main weakness


    Would you ever listen to anything by Malcolm Gladwell again?

    Yes of course, but I will look into the reviews first, because I bought the book in a pre-order and was a complete deception in all senses. I read a different book of Gladwell quality.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Great, I mean to heard the book from the same author is an extraordinary way to understand the content.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The main strenght is the first chapter: The David & Goliath history that opens the book. There are several data and comments that I do not know and find interesting ones.

    La traducción en español de El Arte de Vivir es la introducción clásica a la Meditación Vipassana, tal y como la enseña S.N. Goenka. Preparado bajo su tutela y con su aprobación, este estudio completo incluye historias por Goenkaji, así como respuestas a preguntas realizadas por sus estudiantes; las cuales transmiten un sentido vívido de su enseñanza.
