    I regularly look for scholarly titles on Audible and I think this is one of the best. Nicely done undergraduate level introduction to the Earth's climate mechanisms and what part they play in the phenomenon of global warming. The lecture format is clear and the course guideline gives additional info and pointers to further reading. Good job Dr. McElroy. Definitely worth the $'s.

  • The Fountainhead

    Arguably the century's most challenging novel of ideas, The Fountainhead is the story of a gifted young architect, his violent battle with conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with the beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. This unabridged recording of the classic features the voice of actor Christopher Hurt.

    Lisa says: "Amazing!"
    "Elitist trash"
    Overall

    The plot and writing have some minor merit but, having read this book and almost all her other works when I was younger, I can tell you that with age comes a wisdom Ms. Rand never knew. The philosophy is simplistic and impoverished in important ways (most notably in its lack of understanding of human interactions outside the sphere of power relationships). The engine of our culture, even our species, is a deep interdependence in all areas. If you do listen to this use it to understand philosophy better by way of a bad example.

    For the three years Shadow spent in prison, all he wanted was to get back to the loving arms of his wife and stay out of trouble for the rest of his life. But days before his release, he learns that his wife has been killed in an accident, and his world becomes a colder place.

    Joseph says: "Amazing, powerful book about America."
    "Very good."
    Overall

    Very nicely done. Well worth the time.
