    Our relationship with the ocean is undergoing a profound transformation. Just three decades ago nearly everything we ate from the sea was wild. Today rampant overfishing and an unprecedented biotech revolution have brought us to a point where wild and farmed fish occupy equal parts of a complex and confusing marketplace.

  • Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

    Story

    Someone who is an extrovert may have a different response to this book, but as an introvert, this book spoke to me. I think this book should be read by everyone--both introverts and extroverts. Understanding personality types and our relationships based on those personality types could change our society and the way we interact with each other.

    I am an introvert who has learned very well how to act like an extrovert. But its not easy. This book has made me understand that the parts of myself that I sometimes hide are important--not only to myself but to others. It has also helped me understand what I need to do for myself in order to revitalize--to be able to act extroverted when I need to but still remain centered and energized.

    I am a full-hearted supporter of the Quiet revolution.

  • Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet

    Twenty years ago, with The End of Nature, Bill McKibben offered one of the earliest warnings about global warming. Those warnings went mostly unheeded; now, he insists, we need to acknowledge that we've waited too long, and that massive change is not only unavoidable but already under way. Our old familiar globe is suddenly melting, drying, acidifying, flooding, and burning in ways that no human has ever seen.

    Story

    This book is extremely well researched and written, but may get dry at some points. The first half of the book is why we should be concerned--for those who already know or are already convinced, this may be tedious. Otherwise, a good compilation.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    I was concerned about listening to this book as an audiobook as I was warned that there were too many characters and the plot would be confusing unless read in paper-form, but I would disagree. Very compelling.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    A moving book that I had trouble turning off. The topic is not an easy one, any many may criticize a white woman for endeavoring to write such a novel, but I think it was well done. The narrators were well chosen.
