    Story
    (255)

    In a rare blend of scientific insight and writing as elegant as the theories it explains, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away the layers of mystery surrounding string theory to reveal a universe that consists of 11 dimensions where the fabric of space tears and repairs itself, and all matter-from the smallest quarks to the most gargantuan supernovas-is generated by the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of energy.

    "Great Book - You Need Understand Physics"
    Overall

    I am a former physicist and I listen to books to and from work as a professional photographer. There was a lot to learn if you have not kept up with quantum mechanics. I had to back it up 10 min or so every so often as my brain could not take in all the information at the speed it was given. The guy knows his stuff and puts it in logical order but you can't (I can't) grasp it as fast as he speaks it, especially when you are listening to it instead of reading it.

    Story
    (2604)

    Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells, taken without her knowledge, became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first immortal human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than 60 years.

    Overall

    This is one of the best audio books I have every listen to while in the car. It is a story that is worth knowing and thinking about how we human behave with the information on hand. I highly recommend this book, the story will take you in in less than 15 minutes.

  • Mexifornia: A State of Becoming

    Story
    (15)

    In Mexifornia, author Victor Davis Hanson ponders what has changed in California over the last quarter-century. His concern is how the state, the Southwest, and indeed the entire nation have been altered by America's hemorrhaging borders and how our disordered immigration policies are perhaps most harmful to the Mexican immigrants who come seeking a better life.

    "Everyone Needs To Read This"
    Overall

    This book will explain one man's life and opinion of what has gone on in the town his family has lived in for three generations. It is about the reality of what happens when immigrants do not blend into the society to which they have come to to find a better life. It is about the breakdown of a country, piece by piece and how it is taking place in Mexifornia. Some may argue with what he has written but the author is living it and telling you what he sees. He is a professor at a university and his education and outlook allow you to understand he crisis which is growing. No one wants this to happen but it is the responsibility of the those who have lived and died here to stand up for their country and way of life. We are a blend of many cultures and all who have come here have added to the wonders of blended culture. When immigrants do not adopt their new country's ways and customs then we have a separation not a blend. When those immigrating simply overwhelm the system which is in place, the system breaks down under the weight of the overload. It is up to US to do something about what is happening lest we loose our culture, country and laws. If you care about your culture and country, this is a must read.
