    "Belief Molecules"

    I love Candace Pert's authoritative style - a highly educated academic who informs without pedantry. Her honesty and willingness to stick her neck out regarding the ideas presented are noteworthy. Very compelling subject.

  • Younger Next Year: A Guide to Living Like 50 Until You're 80 and Beyond

    • ABRIDGED (7 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By Chris Crowley, Henry S. Lodge
    • Narrated By Don Leslie, Rick Adamson

    Younger Next Year is about how to turn back your biological clock. How to become functionally younger every year for the next five to 10 years, and continue to live with vitality and grace into your 80s and beyond.

    Sara says: "Great ideas but written for MEN"
    "Good Science Bad Sidekick"

    I wish that I could give this recording five stars because the topic is controversial and the science presented is rational, thought-provoking and extremely interesting. What irritated me is the sidekick comments delivered by Chris Crowley that were aimed exclusively at men, and were at points offensive. I really could have done without his part of the recording - it just ruined it all for me and I couldn't even click forward or backward to avoid his sections.

  • The Coming China Wars: Where They Will Be Fought and How They Can Be Won

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Peter Navarro
    • Narrated By Stow Lovejoy
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    China's breakneck industrialization is placing it on a collision course with the entire world. Tomorrow's China Wars will be fought over everything from decent jobs, livable wages, and leading-edge technologies to strategic resources such as oil, copper, and steel, even food, water, and air.

    Joe says: "Good Narration, Book Flawed"
    "Astonishing Epiphany"

    This is an amazing read that has me on the edge of my seat. I'm about 3/4ths of the way through, and am still waiting to hear about Viagra (mentioned two times). But, the big story is that China's war with the Western World makes Osama bin Ladin look like PeeWee Herman. Be afraid, be very afraid.

  • Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

    • ABRIDGED (9 hrs and 34 mins)
    • By Jared Diamond
    • Narrated By Christopher Murney

    In his million-copy best seller Guns, Germs, and Steel, Jared Diamond examined how and why Western civilizations developed the technologies and immunities that allowed them to dominate much of the world. Now in this brilliant companion volume, Diamond probes the other side of the equation: what caused some of the great civilizations of the past to collapse into ruin, and what can we learn from their fates?

    Rebecca says: "an fascinating book, but better on paper"
    "Critical Precedents Worth Paying Attention To"

    Good, critical science - every example of failed societies providess a great lesson in humility and the need for conservation and sustainability.

  • The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 58 mins)
    • By Michael Pollan
    • Narrated By Scott Brick
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

    MCRedding says: "Great presentation of a moral dilemma"
    "Elegant Expose of American Food Culture"

    Michael Pollan's writing never ceases to delight - not only in it's many detailed observations, multi-faceted viewpoints and thoroughness - but in his breathtaking writing style that leaves you wanting more. He has left no stone unturned in this exposition of the food industry in modern capitalist America - which brings up many existential questions for the reader. In the end, however, Pollan generates enthusiasm for how each of us can contribute to a meaningful food revolution.
