The year is 1823, and the trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company live a brutal frontier life. Hugh Glass is among the company's finest men, an experienced frontiersman and an expert tracker. But when a scouting mission puts him face-to-face with a grizzly bear, he is viciously mauled and not expected to survive. Two company men are dispatched to stay behind and tend to Glass before he dies. When the men abandon him instead, Glass is driven to survive by one desire: revenge.

Awesome listen. I was fully engaged the entire book. The reader did a phenomenal job. To think that this was inspired by true events is remarkable. The ending wasn't what I was expecting but then again I'm not sure what was going to happen. The author also gives historical accounts at the end that were interesting.

In this age of billion dollar athletic marketing campaigns, “feel good” philosophy with no connection to reality, and a Sports Media echo chamber that’s all too eager swallow whatever idiotic notion happens to be in vogue at the moment, it’s tough to find people who aren’t afraid to say what they’re really thinking.

Synthesizing the work of thinkers including Freud, Diderot, Nietzsche, and Einstein, delineating the enticing strategies of characters throughout history, The Art of Seduction is a comprehensive guide to getting what we want - any way we can. Controversial but never dull, timeless and up-to-date, it's destined to be Greene's next best seller.

I liked this book and found it interesting. I would recommend it if you like learning about why people do what they do or act the way that they act. I listened twice and I am thinking about listening again. It wasn't too long or too short and was able to get a lot of information in between.

  • The Big Miss

The Big Miss is Hank Haney's candid and surprisingly insightful account of his tumultuous six-year journey with Tiger Woods, during which the supremely gifted golfer collected six major championships and rewrote golf history. Hank was one of the very few people allowed behind the curtain. He was with Tiger 110 days a year, spoke to him over 200 days a year, and stayed at his home up to 30 days a year, observing him in nearly every circumstance....

I listened to this book just to see if I could find out a bit more about the mysterious side of Tiger Woods and why he did some of the things he's done. The majority of this book is more of Hanks relationship with Tiger and how he was treated by Tiger. I don't know if I learned any more than I already knew about the elusive "Tiger" that I already didn't know.

  • The Hidden Influences Behind How Sports Are Played and Games Are Won

Drawing from Moskowitz's original research, as well as studies from fellow economists such as bestselling author Richard Thaler, the authors look at: the influence home-field advantage has on the outcomes of games in all sports and why it exists; the surprising truth about the universally accepted axiom that defense wins championships; the subtle biases that umpires exhibit in calling balls and strikes in key situations; the unintended consequences of referees' tendencies in every sport to "swallow the whistle," and more.
