    Leonard Mlodinow, the best-selling author of The Drunkard’s Walk and coauthor of The Grand Design (with Stephen Hawking), gives us a startling and eye-opening examination of how the unconscious mind shapes our experience of the world and how, for instance, we often misperceive our relationships with family, friends, and business associates, misunderstand the reasons for our investment decisions, and misremember important events.

    Jeanine says: "All Around Good Book"
    "Informative piece, lots and lots of sudies quoted"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, the information is valuable in understanding how others can manipulate our choices.


    What could Leonard Mlodinow have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I liked that he read it himself.


    Was Subliminal worth the listening time?

    Yes, it was valuable in how the mind works, and how we remember our own experiences compared to others experiencing the same thing.It may not answer all the questions about ones self but it's a good portion of the puzzle of how we think we are thinking.

    The season of gift-giving is here, and this year we've got something special for our members: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Yuletide whodunit "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle". In this holiday-themed short story, Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson, follow the trail of a lost hat and a Christmas goose through the streets of London and into a rapidly expanding mystery.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle to be better than the print version?

    I have read the print version, and the audio version adds to the suspence.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle?

    The narrator had the perfect accent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The gorgeous goose

  • You Are Not So Smart: Why You Have Too Many Friends on Facebook, Why Your Memory Is Mostly Fiction, and 46 Other Ways You're Deluding Yourself

    An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise. You believe you are a rational, logical being who sees the world as it really is, but journalist David McRaney is here to tell you that you're as deluded as the rest of us. But that's OK - delusions keep us sane. You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self-delusion. It's like a psychology class, with all the boring parts taken out, and with no homework. Based on the popular blog of the same name, You Are Not So Smart collects more than 46 of the lies we tell ourselves everyday.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Things I wish I knew before college, high school, and life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You Are Not So Smart?

    Conformity and The Spotlight affect


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, this is better absorb chapter by chapter to think about what you heard.


    Any additional comments?

    Finally the book I was looking for.
