I am inspired by the beautiful women, girls, and men who I’ve met over the years that lack the self-esteem to recognize their own beauty.

    The Nazis discovered it. The Allies won the war with it. It conquered diseases, changed laws, and single-handedly launched the era of antibiotics. This incredible discovery was sulfa, the first antibiotic medication. In The Demon Under the Microscope, Thomas Hager chronicles the dramatic history of the drug that shaped modern medicine.

    Story
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    This story details how modern medicine was changed by the first antibiotics. A real eye opener especially about child birth infections and battle field surgery. The author details how dangerous and short life was before these drugs came out before world war 2. However, the book is too verbose. The details of some of the research are boring, for example in one point of the book they read off 10 minutes of numbers that were lab sample numbers, I let out a groan half way through that mind numbing detail. I took to pushing the skip 15 seconds ahead button a lot. Really about half this book could be edited out. It has a lot of details about unsuccessful experiments, some people's names and locations that don't real add much to the story.


    Do you think The Demon Under The Microscope needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope, enough said.

  • Tough Sh-t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

    Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.

    Would you try another book from Kevin Smith and/or Kevin Smith?

    No


    What could Kevin Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    burn the first draft


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not much more than a man with huge Ego and big sense of entitlement, whining about how he is true indie film maker and an ad for his Podcasts. His constant references to his influences, really is a list of who he badly tries to imitate. From George Carlin to Quentin Tarantino, it is more ape like imitation that original thought. It is good that he is against haters of the gay community and champions the rights of the overweight while he slams anyone who has a 9 to 5 job as not being as smart as him. This loud mouth is your worst nightmare to be stuck beside at an airport bar, as he whines about his former boss at Mirimax pictures being a sell out. He thinks he is Bugs Bunny, but the truth is more like Foghorn Leghorn.

  • Danger to Self: On the Front Line with an ER Psychiatrist

    Story
    (56)

    The psychiatric emergency room, a fast-paced combat zone with pressure to match, thrusts its medical providers into the outland of human experience where they must respond rapidly and decisively in spite of uncertainty and, very often, danger. In this lively first-person narrative, Paul R. Linde takes listeners behind the scenes at an urban psychiatric emergency room, with all its chaos and pathos, where we witness mental health professionals doing their best to alleviate suffering.

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

    I liked three or four chapters about the cases, but other chapters go off on to a lot of cut and paste quotes about the industry and they are dull. Could be half as big.Really need a case like Hannibal Lector but I guess that is not really what goes on.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Aspects about Meth addiction, and comment on how doctors withhold treatment when resources are scarce.


    Do you think Danger to Self needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    nope
