    While on the campaign trail, Elizabeth Edwards met many others who have had to contend with serious adversity in their lives, and in Resilience, she draws on their experiences as well as her own, crafting an unsentimental and ultimately inspirational meditation on the gifts we can find among life's biggest challenges.

    Jill says: "Intense and emotional"
    "Moving"
    Overall

    Surpringly, Edwards' book is about many life-changing experiences -- the least important is the afair. Worth listing to, but make sure you have your tissues handy.

  • The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

    Named one of "The Hundred Most Influential Books Since the Second World War" by the Times Literary Supplement, and one of the "100 Best Nonfiction" books by the Modern Library, Thomas S. Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is a landmark of scientific thought. Written in 1962, Kuhn's book took an entirely different view of how scientists perceived and achieved changes in basic theoretical assumptions - what he termed "paradigm shifts".

    Matthew says: "Better than prior reviews led me to believe"
    "Unfit for audible"
    Overall

    This seminal work is not the type of book to digest on audible.

    As Pip unravels the truth behind his own "great expectations" in his quest to become a gentleman, the mysteries of the past and the convolutions of fate through a series of thrilling adventures serve to steer him toward maturity and his most important discovery of all - the truth about himself.

    Ed says: "This Dickens guy has promise"
    "Fabulous classic"
    Overall

    It was like watching a movie. Dickens masterful writing is a masterpiece.
