When they finally go through with their plan. It's absolutely insane and doesn't make a whole lot of a sense a Kerkow, who was not the crazy one, had to have realized that, but she went along anyway.
It kept me interested. I'm too young to remember the rash of hijackings that occurred in the 1960's and 70's, so while this isn't necessarily a detailed historical overview, it was very interesting to me.
This is a fascinating story about rescuing and raising a herd of elephants. It's quite moving in some parts. I had picked this up while back and neglected to listen to it for a long time, I wish I hadn't put it off because it's fantastic.
I haven't read the print version. I picked up the audibook because it was plugged on TWiT a lot and I wanted to understand it.
I don't know. It's a dire warnining about the possible consequences of ongoing research in the AI field. There's lots of fictionalized stories like this (Asimov's classics come to mind) but this is a non fiction book.
If that friend has an interest in Cold War politics and the politics around WMD development and use (safe to say most do not) then absolutely.
I have not. I have since purchased another book he narrated though, I enjoyed him.
The subject is a bit scary and I don't think a lot of people realize just how bad the USSR was at disposing of or securing their WMD as the collapse of their government happened.
Sad yet hopeful.
I like that he was able to be rescued from the life of child soldier and go on to present about these issues at the UN.
It's his memories. One thing is when he signs some of the songs that made him happy as a kid, you can tell they still do.
No. This was really bad.
I've been going through a lot of changes in my life and I figured a self help book aimed at my demographic would be a little beneficial. It is not. It has turned me off the genre.
I don't know. Hulk Hogan.
Sadness, really. It quickly descended into "Pick Up Artist" levels of stupidity. Which is not what I was looking for. It shouldn't be what any sane man is looking for.
This book has nothing interesting about it. It's just a list of things that happened. Many of them are only bad ideas in hindsight.
Seriously, they talk about MLB promoting the Homerun race between Mark McGwire and Sammy Sossa as one of the worst ideas ever. How? Because it was revealed after the fact that they had taken some PEDs?
The book actually starts off amusing, but it quickly descends into the authors listing things that 1) were not bad ideas and 2) that the authors don't know ANYTHING about. The computer section almost made me have a stroke.
Yes. This was terrible.
He was actually fine. He sounds a bit condescending at times, but I guess that's sort of the point of the book.
No, not really.
