  • In Defense of Food

    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    Kimberly says: "Good book, but read The Omnivore's Dilemma first"
    "Filled with insightful history and health of food."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It opens your eyes to the world of food that we live in.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a must read. Anyone who cares about their health or has health issues related to poor eating habits needs to read this audio book or the hardcover book.

    The narrator "Scott Brick" is very good with drawing in the listener and highlighting interesting points with his tone of voice.

  • Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

    Great story, it takes you on a ride. The story itself is vey compelling and even though it can get a little technical (which I love) those who aren't into technology can still keep up. I love hacker stories, and this one is the best I've read so far.

    Story

    New research has revealed that myelin, once considered an inert form of insulation for brain cells, may be the holy grail of acquiring skill. Journalist Daniel Coyle spent years investigating talent hotbeds, interviewing world-class practitioners (top soccer players, violinists, fighter, pilots, artists, and bank robbers) and neuroscientists. In clear, accessible language, he presents a solid strategy for skill acquisition.

    What made the experience of listening to The Talent Code the most enjoyable?

    The book explains each theory with examples that help the reader understand the concept.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the idea that talent can actually be built on and earned not just something your born with. This book has a very clear message "if you want to get better at something you have to make mistakes, and you'll eventually get better at it."

    Setting down his thoughts on swordplay, on winning, and on spirituality, legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi intended this modest work as a guide for his immediate disciples and future generations of samurai. He had little idea he was penning a masterpiece that would be eagerly devoured by people in all walks of life centuries after his death.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Chris says: "Good Biography, Fine narrator"

    You feel as though you get to know the man. The good and the bad. Steve Jobs was a great CEO who pushed for innovation and focused on even the smallest detail to ensure the user gets the best product possible. It dose not hide the fact that he was also an emotional and a times irrational man who sometimes treated people horribly. Overall this book is great.
