    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.

    What did you love best about You Are Not So Smart?

    That every idea that he put forth was supported heavily in the scienctific community. It is nice to know that I in fact act am not as rational that I have thought.. In ways that I never have thought affect me seem to shape my world.

    Breathless and painstakingly researched, this is a stunning debut mystery in which Sherlock Holmes unmasks Jack the Ripper. Lyndsay Faye perfectly captures all the color and syntax of Conan Doyle’s distinctive nineteenth-century London.

    Would you listen to Dust and Shadow again? Why?

    Yes, defiantily a very instereting story and I do believe I missed some parts in the middle that might have helped me be as deductive as Sherlock.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yeah. Constantly shifting and following the story of one of the worst serial killers of all time.


    What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A british accent that is convincing : )


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    As it being a detective book, It makes you want to think a lot and really be a lot more like Mr. Sherlock Holmes.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.
