    In a world of conflicted loyalties, rapidly diminishing human power, and the possibility that anyone can be a spy, what's at stake is nothing less than human freedom's last hope to survive the technology revolution.

    Great ending to the first book "daemon"
    The first book is still the best.

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Weaving insights from philosophy, neuroscience, and history into a rich narrative, The Shallows explains how the Internet is rerouting our neural pathways, replacing the subtle mind of the book reader with the distracted mind of the screen watcher. A gripping story of human transformation played out against a backdrop of technological upheaval, The Shallows will forever alter the way we think about media and our minds.

    Douglas says: "Exceedingly Important Reading!..."
    "Think about it"
    Overall

    I found this to be very enlightening. I have changed my online habits to get the most out of what my brain can hold. Important points: Humans are NOT multitasking, Overloading our short term memory doesn't make us smarter. Well worth a listen.

    It is a world where magic is forbidden – yet practiced in secret every day. But each small act of magic exacts a dreadful price – for it brings the bramble, which chokes farmland, destroys villages, and kills with its deadly thorns. In this world an alchemist believes he’s found a solution to the curse. But will the cure be worse than the disease? And a woman is forced to take up the mantle of her father, the Executioner. But it will not be the only death that she faces.

    Rand says: "Not What I Expected..."
    "Not my kind of book"
    Overall

    I'm not sure why I bought this, I guess a change of subject. You might like this book if your into this.

  • The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements

    Story
    (1517)

    Reporter Sam Kean reveals the periodic table as it’s never been seen before. Not only is it one of man's crowning scientific achievements, it's also a treasure trove of stories of passion, adventure, betrayal, and obsession. The infectious tales and astounding details in The Disappearing Spoon follow carbon, neon, silicon, and gold as they play out their parts in human history, finance, mythology, war, the arts, poison, and the lives of the (frequently) mad scientists who discovered them.

    Ethan M. says: "Excellent, if unfocused"
    "Entertain while educating"
    Overall

    One of the best in my collection. I really like the style in which this is told. If you like the preview, you'll love the book. Packs a lot of info, so rereading many times helps you get every dime out of this book.

    Story

    In this classic, romantic ghost story, a governess on a remote country estate begins to believe her charges are possessed by the spirits of 2 dead former servants. Are her perceptions simply the fruit of her neuroses - or could they possibly be valid? A foray into the very heart of evil, Henry James's masterful novel is also remarkable for its psychological acuity and evocation of mood.

    Patricia Marino says: "Great book; wonderful reading"
    "Very British"
    Overall

    This was very well read. I have seen the many movies made made from this story. It was great to hear the original story. The best movie made of this has to be "The Innocents" 1963 The book is very true to it's time period. 1898 So get ready for some real old British language.
