    With his characteristic eyebrow-raising behavior, Richard P. Feynman once provoked the wife of a Princeton dean to remark, "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" But the many scientific and personal achievements of this Nobel Prize-winning physicist are no laughing matter. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, Feynman relates the defining moments of his accomplished life.

    Overall

    I love books like this one. Lots of interesting anecdotes from a person smarter than me (that part isn't to tough to achieve!). I have hundreds of audio books but I always like to come back to this one every couple of years. My father listened to part of it with me and got hooked, himself. We still talk about the parts of it we enjoyed the most.

    One of NPR's most popular programs, Car Talk lets listeners (2.3 million of them) call in with their car woes while the hosts dish out their wit and know-how. At the end of each hour, 2 of 2 things are guaranteed to happen: you'll learn something about your motor vehicle and you'll have a belly laugh. Get the latest issue or subscribe!

    Overall

    I wrote earlier that I let my subscription to Car Talk lapse because it was not burnable to CD. Well, that has changed. Now, I can burn the shows to a CD so I can listen in the car. Not only that, but the "commercials" during the breaks (you know, those public service announcements and ads for upcoming NPR shows) are removed.

    I love the new way Car Talk is done. The newest show is always available on Monday for me to get. I don't have to listen to "commercials". I can burn it to CD. Can life get any better?

    Way to go, Audible! Oh, and you too, Tom and Ray.
