    You'll be awe-inspired by the heroic efforts of the crew of the Endurance, a ship that battled its way for six weeks through thousands of miles of pack ice while ironically only a day's sail from its destination.

    Frank says: "Unbelievable"

    Overall

    This must be the most incredible human survival story ever. A great tale. Probably the best Audible book I've ever bought. I found myself unable to get out of the car because I wanted to get to the next "page". The actual hardcover book does have some wonderful pictures and maps which make the story even better, but the Audible version was great nonetheless.

    A smart and funny book by a prominent Harvard psychologist, which uses groundbreaking research and (often hilarious) anecdotes to show us why we're so lousy at predicting what will make us happy, and what we can do about it.

    Terril Lowe says: "Great Book!"
    "Well written"
    Overall

    Well written. Lots of great anecdotes and insights into how the human brain deceives us all. Don't expect any great wisdom regarding how to be happy though - the author builds up his well thought out arguments as if working his way to some great crescendo or secret that never unfolds. Perhaps that's the point.

  • The Future for Investors: Why the Tried and the True Triumph Over the Bold and the New

    From one of the world's top investing experts, and the best-selling author of Stocks for the Long Run, comes a book that challenges certain conventional wisdom. Based on groundbreaking research, The Future for Investors makes the case that as an investor you are better off with old, reliable companies, many of whose products have not changed for years.

    Thomas says: "Definately worth reading if you invest in equities"
    "Master of the Obvious"
    Overall

    Repetitive, obvious, and tiresome. I must confess that I didn't have the patience to survive past Chapter 5, although the first half can be summarized as 1) You need to include dividend yields when determining investor returns and 2) The valuation or PE level that you buy in at will dictate your ultimate return. The analysis was heavily weighted around Company's that existed in 1957 (the start of the S&P500 (which I fear subject the conclusions to some survivor bias). Perhaps the second half is better, but I am unlikely find out. This was my worst Audible investment to date.
