    Most of us have no idea what's really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know - such as the brain's need for physical activity to work at its best. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget - and so important to repeat new information? Is it true that men and women have different brains?

    "interesting & enjoyable/annoying narration"
    Overall

    Very interesting, well written, great book! But the author should have had someone else narrate. His voice squeaks and cracks like a teenage boy. He actually reads it well, its just the squeaking that bothers me.

    Challenging what most of us assume to be verifiable truths in areas like history, literature, science, nature, and more, The Book of General Ignorance is a witty gotcha compendium of how little we actually know about anything. It'll have you scratching your head wondering why we even bother to go to school.

    Revealing the truth behind all the things we think we know but don't, this book leaves you dumbfounded about all the misinformation you've managed to collect during your life.

    "not a good one for audio, probably great in print"
    Overall

    This book might be great in print, but in audio it sounds like a rambling list of facts rather than a narrative-style. Impossible to listen to.

    In The Last American Man, Gilbert explores the true story of Eustace Conway, who left his comfortable suburban home at the age of 17 to move into the Appalachian Mountains, where for the last 20 years he has lived, making fire with sticks, wearing skins from animals he trapped, and living off the land.

    David says: "A wonderful true story of an American Original"
    "great story, annoying narration"
    Overall

    I loved the story. Its captivating and beautifully written by Elizabeth Gilbert. However, the narrator's use of a thick South Carolinan accent everytime Conway speaks (which is very often--there's a lot of direct quotations) drove me crazy.
