"Life changes fast....You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends." These were among the first words Joan Didion wrote in January 2004. Her daughter was lying unconscious in an intensive care unit, a victim of pneumonia and septic shock. Her husband, John Gregory Dunne, was dead. The night before New Year's Eve, while they were sitting down to dinner, he suffered a massive and fatal coronary. The two had lived and worked side by side for nearly 40 years.

Had several tragic losses and was looking at this book for some help or ease with the sorrow. As the book is so highly recommended and has helped others I’m sad it didn’t work or help very much for me.

No driver has ever made such an instant impact on the sport of F1 racing as Lewis Hamilton. The first black grand prix driver, his astonishing level of success in his rookie season together with his swash-buckling, attacking style has created a sensation. It has also been a central factor in the most exciting and controversial season of F1 in living memory as Hamilton was involved in a three-way fight for the world crown.

Second half of the book has almost minute long reads from points and positions that are so drawn out it’s infuriating to listen to. We don’t need every point and every position all the way to 19th! Just explain the significance and 2 to 3 placements.

Does that I’m feel like an autobiography. Very little information about Enzo Ferrari but a long list of the cars he worked on without any interesting details about them. I felt like he was just reading a list of cars

Great story. Cleared up a few things. Workout was a tad uninformative with the rest between reps but it was indicative enough. The nutrition breakdown was very thorough

From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new collection of essays taking his listeners on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences.

Didn't like it until near the end. Skip this one. His story was bland and depressing. Not his usual humor.
