The best of the best. A fascinating story. I wanted to listen tot he whole thing at one sitting.
If this author had stuck to the brain science, the book would have been terrific. The personal and endless academic stories were boring and tiresome. I don't care what or where you ate when you were with another brilliant friend at another spectacular restaurant. If I had heard the word Dartmouth one more time, I would have gagged. How many times can one write about moving to another academic location and planning another meeting at some "special" location? The hyperbole drips at every turn. The authors friends and students were ALL brilliant and awesome and smart and well, just plain phenomenal. Much of the book was a giant self-directed pat on the back. I don't think I read one word about the author ever using their discoveries to help mankind suffering from neurological disease. The brain is interesting. The authors personal life and pretentious attitude was not.
A disturbing viiew of the true stupidity of sports in America.
A real look into the the insanity of quarterback dads and quarterback coaching prostitutes.
Now I know why I can't stand Trent Dilfer-DUDE. Is he trying to talk like a valley girl or a 16 year old kid? Who talks like this?
This book describes exactly where's we've come as a society. Listen at you own risk.
Moderately interesting story filled with stories of drug induced stupidity. Constant reference to drug excess is tedious and boring. Political correctness drips at every turn. I found myself fast forwarding a lot and couldn't wait for it to end. Don't waste your money on this.
If you like brain trivia, you'll enjoy this one. The last third kind of drags though
Great read. Well-written and well-documented. Another gem by Ann Coulter. Definitely worth a listen.
The worst book I've ever read. If you want to be bored to death, this one's for you.
As usual, Krakauer has a political axe to grind and he gives it his all in this one. I found it mostly boring but dripping with political sarcasm.
Great book about the secrets of brain function. Interesting and informative. Worth the read.
If you like books about the brain this is for you.
Interesting book about a bizarre brain condition. Worth a listen. Moves a little slowly but it finally comes together.
