    Everyone seems to agree that we have an epidemic of what is diagnosed as autism. But, in the history of our society, there has never been "an epidemic" of any developmental or genetic disorder. Yet, over the span of thirty years, autism has gone from affecting one in 5,000 children to one in 90, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. So what is this "autism", which has come to affect the lives of so many?

    If you could sum up The Myth of Autism in three words, what would they be?

    very good book, therapy-oriented. i was hoping for a wider discussion about the theory and less about treatment but for people dealing with autism in their day to day routine it's a must.


    Have you listened to any of Clinton Wade’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    good performance


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    i would love to buy a book that talks about the theory in a wider aspect, without therapy issues.

  • The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won't Prevent Heart Disease - and the Statin-Free Plan That Will

    Emerging science is showing that cholesterol levels are a poor predictor of heart disease and that standard prescriptions for lowering it, such as ineffective low-fat/high-carb diets and serious, side-effect-causing statin drugs, obscure the real causes of heart disease. Even doctors at leading institutions have been misled for years based on creative reporting of research results from pharmaceutical companies intent on supporting the $31-billion-a-year cholesterol-lowering drug industry.

    Refreshes the parts other history books can’t reach...A bit ropy on the Renaissance? In the dark about the Enlightenment? Or, in fact, do you need a revision course on the entire history of the world and want to read a witty, irreverent, definitely not boring romp through everything that has ever happened on planet earth – from 15 billion years BC to the present day? Good.

    If you could sum up A Less Boring History of the World in three words, what would they be?

    Dave Rear can write a book describing grass growing and you would still enjoy it more than most other books you ever read...
    This is not just the most entertaining way to know more about history, but also a great chance for history-knowers to have an experience second to none.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Exceptional humor


    What about Miles Jupp’s performance did you like?

    Outstanding performance. You would think he wrote the book himself...


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Once upon a time, in a place right under your nose...


    Any additional comments?

    Yes.

    Again and again, microbes have shaped our health, our genetics, our history, our culture, our politics, even our religion and ethics. This book reveals much that scientists and cultural historians have learned about the pervasive interconnections between infectious microbes and humans. It also considers what our ongoing fundamental relationship with infectious microbes might mean for the future of the human species.

    If you could sum up Germs, Genes, & Civilization: How Epidemics Shaped Who We Are Today in three words, what would they be?

    Very good book, probably better off read than listened to by non biologically-oriented people (some basic knowledge in biology will do).


    Have you listened to any of Summer McStravick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Good performance


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely not


    Any additional comments?

    Good book
