    In this landmark new study of Western thought, Anthony Gottlieb looks afresh at the writings of the great thinkers, questions much of conventional wisdom, and explains his findings with unbridled brilliance and clarity. After finishing The Dream of Reason, listeners will be graced with a fresh appreciation of the philosophical quest, its entertaining and bizarre byways, and its influence on every aspect of life.

    Amazon Customer says: "An in depth read."
    "Good, engaging history of philosopy"
    Overall

    Especially strong in its depiction of early Greek philosophy - but engaging all the way through. Not as easy to listen as fiction, yet the excellent narration helps. You may want to listen to it again after a while.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "Amusing piece of fluff"
    Overall

    Reads like Grisham - same low quality of writing, pseudo scientific. Yet, an excellent vehicle to express your anger at the church, and at religion in general. The latter point makes it worth reading.
