    In Cooked, Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen. Here, he discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements - fire, water, air, and earth - to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Apprenticing himself to a succession of culinary masters, Pollan learns how to grill with fire, cook with liquid, bake bread, and ferment everything from cheese to beer. In the course of his journey, he discovers that the cook occupies a special place in the world....

    Matt says: "Michael Pollan Fans Will Love It."
    "So much more than a book on cooking."

    What made the experience of listening to Cooked the most enjoyable?

    Michael Pollan's experience and passion about his journey in expanding his cooking skills is contagious and thoroughly enjoyable.

    I expected another great book on food from Michael Pollan but I got so much more. He takes you on a journey of not only how the elements to draw the maximum taste and nutrition from our food but also how each type of cooking engages and enhances our culture and family.

    I also learned how modern food preparation methods that intend to shortcut the amount of work in our meals also shortcut the flavor and especially the nutrition.

    I loved this book and talked about it with my friends and coworkers.

  • Steve Jobs

    (9924)

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Chris says: "Good Biography, Fine narrator"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Steve Jobs the most enjoyable?

    Steve Jobs had just enough involvement and a surprising amount of detachment to portray the qualities of his life. The narrator conveys Isaacson's connection to another well-researched biography. Isaacson has a knack for delivering biographies that convey both the positive qualities and faults that form the human side of each life. There is no hero worship here, but an in-depth conveyance of a life filled with passion, conflict, and genius.I learned so much about what makes Steve, Steve and what made Apple, Apple.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Isaacson pulled no punches and in no way glorified this icon. He didn't have to. Isaacons's account of Job's struggles, failures, missteps, oversteps and sporadic advances was able to tell the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have loved to, but the story of Steve Jobs is just too big for one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this to anyone who wants to know the ins and outs of becoming a tech giant. Its not always riding on the top.

    Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters.

    What made the experience of listening to Ender's Shadow the most enjoyable?

    This book is a fantastic parallel to Ender's Game. We see two very different characters develop as they face the challenges of their survival and the survival of the human race.

    The narrators of this story are very well balanced and draw you right in.
