    The solar system most of us grew up with included nine planets, with Mercury closest to the sun and Pluto at the outer edge. Then, in 2005, astronomer Mike Brown made the discovery of a lifetime: a 10th planet, Eris, slightly bigger than Pluto. But instead of its resulting in one more planet being added to our solar system, Brown's find ignited a firestorm of controversy that riled the usually sedate world of astronomy and launched him into the public eye.

    Overall

    Interesting and engaging memoir of an astronomers trials and tribulations both in his career and personal life. Enjoyed it more that I thought I would!

    This humorous and nostalgic novel takes the listener back to the carefree days of boyhood in Hannibal, Missouri, where Mark Twain grew up.

    Just what did boys do in a small Midwestern town during the mid-1800s, a time when there were no televisions, no arcades, and no videos? They whitewashed fences, floated down rivers, traded marbles, formed secret societies, smoked pipes, and, on occasion, managed to attend their own funerals.

    What made the experience of listening to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer the most enjoyable?

    Tom and friends take you on a trip with comedy, excitement and sadness.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer?

    Tom and Hucks relationship seemed familiar as I suspect it will to most.


    What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?

    The subtle and not so subtle accents were delightful.

  • How We Decide

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 33 mins)

    Story

    Jonah Lehrer arms us with the tools we need to figure out how we decide, drawing on cutting-edge research by Daniel Kahneman, Colin Camerer, and others, as well as the real-world experiences of a wide range of "deciders" - from airplane pilots and hedge fund investors to serial killers and poker players. Lehrer shows how people are taking advantage of the new science to make better television shows, win more football games, and improve military intelligence.

    Sarah says: "Summarizes information from several superior books"
    "Interesting but long"
    Overall

    The subject was interesting and the information thought provoking. A one hour summary would
    be an appreciated. No entertainment value.
