    Story
    (29)

    In the year 2042, Sierra, a young graduate student in Classics is shown a new dialog of Socrates, recently discovered, in which a time traveler tries to argue that Socrates might escape death by travel to the future. Thomas, the elderly scholar who has shown her the document, disappears, and Sierra immediately begins to track down the provenance of the manuscript, with the help of her classical scholar boyfriend, Max.

    "twist and shout"
    Overall

    WOW - that was fun trying to keep up with. The twists and turns gave a refreshing spin on my favorite topic - time travel.
    I can see this one being made for film.

    What would have made The Magic of Thinking Big better?

    I am thinking this one would make for a great fire-place log. Perhaps the author should think long and hard before writing another book about something he knows nothing about.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David J. Schwartz again?

    Nope. Nine. Niet. Nada.


    What didn’t you like about David J. Schwartz’s performance?

    My dog would have done a better job.


    What character would you cut from The Magic of Thinking Big?

    The author.


    Any additional comments?

    After three attempts to force-read (listen to) this pile of $%t, I am left with the curiosity about his PhD. What was it REALLY in? Maybe acting? Nah. Football coaching? Don't think so. Dumpster diving? Just maybe.

    One of the world's 50 living autistic savants is the first and only to tell his compelling and inspiring life story and explain how his incredible mind works. Worldwide, there are fewer than 50 living savants, those autistic individuals who can perform miraculous mental calculations or artistic feats. (Think Dustin Hoffman's character in Rain Man.) None of them has been able to discuss his or her thought processes, much less write a book. Until now.

    J. Cline says: "Ordinary Life Through Unordinary Eyes"
    "my story"
    Overall

    I always love to hear these "my story" types. It is fun to know other kinds of people, especially the more gifted of us. I am particularly fond of logical thinkers. Unfortunately Mr Tammet ends on a sour note.
    Overall, however, not too bad.
