    Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary earned his rank after being revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance to victory against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, Geary is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet--and himself--in harm's way. An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary's fears.

    Story

    I have very much enjoyed the first two books of "The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier" series. This second installment does a solid job of moving the plot forward, while expanding the possibilities of what can be addressed in future installments. I find myself very engaged with the story, thinking through plot elements while not reading, the best sign to me that I'm truly enjoying the book.

    I've also enjoyed Christian Rummel's talents in giving unique voices to a broad range of characters. It enhances the listening experience and makes the characters more distinct and personable. Congratulations on an excellent performance.

    An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise. You believe you are a rational, logical being who sees the world as it really is, but journalist David McRaney is here to tell you that you're as deluded as the rest of us. But that's OK - delusions keep us sane. You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self-delusion. It's like a psychology class, with all the boring parts taken out, and with no homework. Based on the popular blog of the same name, You Are Not So Smart collects more than 46 of the lies we tell ourselves everyday.

    Would you recommend You Are Not So Smart to your friends? Why or why not?

    This book describes the working of the mind (as discovered through research) in a fun and entertaining way. I like how the author broke it down into 46 distinct mental processes that the normal person might not understand is going on in his/her own mind, some of which can lead us into some strange and unproductive behaviors.

    My only criticism is that the bits of real-world application that the author provides at the end of each process/chapter could be expounded upon with some more concrete actions to take to ensure you don't fall victim to your own mental processes.
