    Having done field work in New Guinea for more than 30 years, Jared Diamond presents the geographical and ecological factors that have shaped the modern world. From the viewpoint of an evolutionary biologist, he highlights the broadest movements both literal and conceptual on every continent since the Ice Age, and examines societal advances such as writing, religion, government, and technology.

    Story

    The book contains toooo much details. Not for the casual reader interested in a bit of history. Plus, I am not sure if it is because of the content or the narrator himself, but it is very boring. I could not finish the book unfortunately.

  • The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory

    In a rare blend of scientific insight and writing as elegant as the theories it explains, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away the layers of mystery surrounding string theory to reveal a universe that consists of 11 dimensions where the fabric of space tears and repairs itself, and all matter-from the smallest quarks to the most gargantuan supernovas-is generated by the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of energy.

    Excellent book, easy to read. It becomes difficult at the end but you would have benefited a lot from it. Highly recommended if you're interested with physics, universe, etc..

    Millions of people have thrilled to best-selling authors Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, works of nonfiction that have changed the way we view history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. Nearly 2,000 years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God.

    The book is about the Roman Empire, the Jews, the political environment, etc... especially at the beginning. I was disappointed and couldn't continue listening to the book.

  • Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us

    Every year, the average American eats 33 pounds of cheese (triple what we ate in 1970) and 70 pounds of sugar (about 22 teaspoons a day). We ingest 8,500 milligrams of salt a day, double the recommended amount, and almost none of that comes from the shakers on our table. It comes from processed food. It’s no wonder, then, that one in three adults, and one in five kids, is clinically obese.

    Michael says: "This is all too real, and YOU are the victim."
    "A history book"

    Story

    I was disappointed by the book. It's a history book on food industries since early 1900s. It has small parts on how food industries use sugar salt and fat, but they are lost in the historical documentaries. I lost interest in the book and stopped reading it.

    The book is great. It is as current as any book written just yesterday, even though it is more than 60 years old.
    I highly recommend it.
