    America's national parks spring from an idea as radical as the Declaration of Independence: that the nation's most magnificent and sacred places should be preserved, not for royalty or the rich, but for everyone. In this evocative narrative, Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan delve into the history of the park idea.

    Story

    If there was one book about America's history that I would recommend to anyone to read or listen to, this would be the one. I enjoyed the Audiobook so much, I went out and purchased the actual Hard Cover so I could read it again, but this time with my own eyes. In addition, my father who is not too big into reading, listened to a chapter with me while working and really enjoyed the book. Now he keeps asking me about how the book went and ended. This is a must have book for anyone with a love for the outdoors and our National Parks.

  • iWoz: How I Invented the Personal Computer and Had Fun Along the Way

    Story

    Before cell phones that fit in the palm of your hand and slim laptops that fit snugly into briefcases, computers were like strange, alien vending machines. They had cryptic switches, punch cards, and pages of encoded output. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen?

    Story

    Whether or not you are a Mac or a "PC" user, you can't argue that they both stem from the same time period and are actually both PC's, or Personal Computers. Steve Wozniak gives us his side of the story and how he started in Electrical Engineering and eventually invented the PC. As a tech geek, I throughly enjoyed this book, and would have to recommend it to anyone with an interest in computers, engineering or those interested in the history of the personal computer.
