    In an unparalleled collaboration, two leading global thinkers in technology and foreign affairs give us their widely anticipated, transformational vision of the future: a world where everyone is connected - a world full of challenges and benefits that are ours to meet and to harness. Eric Schmidt is one of Silicon Valley’s great leaders, having taken Google from a small startup to one of the world’s most influential companies. Jared Cohen is the director of Google Ideas and a former adviser to secretaries of state Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton.

    What would have made The New Digital Age better?

    This book is for people who have no technology knowledge. For those of us already in the know or who seek new info this book won't be enlightening. It's not a bad book, I enjoy that it address a variety of topics but it's all base level info.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen again?

    Probably not.

    Dr. Le-Bucklin's new parenting book is the first by a pediatrician who is also a mother of twins. No other pregnancy and parenting book for multiples offers this unique and much-needed perspective.

    Would you try another book from Khanh-Van Le-Bucklin and/or Vanessa Hart?

    No.


    What was most disappointing about Khanh-Van Le-Bucklin’s story?

    This book is most helpful to people who have no kids and haven't had their twins yet. Otherwise, everything she mentions you'll figure out in the first month after birth. My twins are 3 months old and unfortunately I didn't learn anything from this book. I would recommend this book.

    Forgive and forget. It should be easy to do—so why don’t we do it? The father who wasn’t always there for us. The mother who punished us. The spouse who betrayed us. The children who will leave us behind. Whoever and whatever the source of hurt, there is always a path to forgiveness. But too often, instead of forgiving, too many of us live with resentments and grudges that keep us stuck, robbing us of joy, peace, and purpose.

    Would you recommend Let It Go to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes. This book is not as churchy as you would think. There are some bible references but overall it's just good life advice that everyone should practice.


    Which character – as performed by T. D. Jakes – was your favorite?

    He has a great voice for narration.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this book because I was seeking person healing. This isn't a sit down and listen to in one session kind of book. It's not heavy but it's nice to listen to his stories and lessons a little at a time. A good way to digest it all. This book didn't change my life it it was a great life refresher and he offers some new and interesting perspectives.

    In this sparkling and provocative new book, the renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman navigates the depths of the subconscious brain to illuminate surprising mysteries. Taking in brain damage, plane spotting, dating, drugs, beauty, infidelity, synesthesia, criminal law, artificial intelligence, and visual illusions, Incognito is a thrilling subsurface exploration of the mind and all its contradictions.

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

    Learning about how my mind works and how the conscious mind has so little control.


    Did David Eagleman do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He was the only character.


    Any additional comments?

    David speaks way too slowly. I wish he would have moved it a long. The book itself is interesting but I wouldn't say mind blowing. I loved all of the hundreds of examples and illustrations he used to prove his point. This book comes across as credible. I did recommend it to others and did enjoy it, but you could probably read it faster than listening to it.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

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

    Tina Fey's voice in entertaining. If we could get her to narrate all the books I've been procrastinating to read on my wish list I'd be done with them in 2 days.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Don Fey.


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

    YES! I would have listened straight through except I have a rule to only listen in the car to help control my road rage. So, instead I listened on 2 separate occasions in the car and a good 1.5 hours at work.


    Any additional comments?

    Tina Fey's observations of the world and how women fit into it is pretty witty and dead on. I want to say Tina Fey is smart because she is but I hope that doesn't deter people from reading. She doesn't discuss math so rest assured this book is both smart and funny. I hope every woman over 25 reads this book. I know you'll enjoy it.
