  • Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 58 mins)

    In this groundbreaking work, evolutionary biologist Jared Diamond stunningly dismantles racially based theories of human history by revealing the environmental factors actually responsible for history's broadest patterns. It is a story that spans 13,000 years of human history, beginning when Stone Age hunter-gatherers constituted the entire human population. Guns, Germs, and Steel is a world history that really is a history of all the world's peoples, a unified narrative of human life.

    From Andre Agassi, one of the most beloved athletes in history and one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court, a beautiful, haunting autobiography. Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match and every relationship. Never before has the inner game of tennis and the outer game of fame been so precisely limned.

    Patrick says: "Just an Incredible Story!"
    "Overly dramatic reading"
    Overall

    Agassi's story is one of the most intriguing in sports. This book is unrelenting in the clear-eyed approach Andre takes to describing his life, feelings, and relationships throughout his amazing career.
    My only complaint is that the narrator takes an equally unrelenting tone that borders between morose and suicidal. I had to struggle to hear the familiar voice of Andre Agassi in the words being spoken. The quality of Eric Davies inflection was so singular that it was hard to glean the emotional state of the man as he traversed the first four decades of his life.
    I wish they had either had Andre read it himself, or selected someone with a similar timbre and tone.

    Between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities...there was an Age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars.... Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand...to tread the jeweled thrones of the earth under his sandalled feet.

    Flavius says: "Some Great Stories"
    "Sparkling!"
    Overall

    The narrator is spectacular and the stories stir the blood. If they ban guns, can we use swords?
