Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

gave it a long listen, but it just wasn't for me. It was long drawn out and boring.

Through its five previous editions, Investing in Real Estate has shown investors how to intelligently build wealth with their investments in houses, condominiums, and small apartment buildings. Unlike many titles in this genre, Investing in Real Estate steers clear of the hyped-up no cash, no credit, no problem promises. Instead, it provides sound, real-world advice and instruction that reflects the authors time-tested wisdom and experience.

Howard Hughes lived one of the greatest, most heroic, misunderstood, mysterious, bizarre, and tragic lives in American history. In this brilliantly documented biography, the mythology that surrounded that life is disentangled from the truth.

I really liked this book. overall, it went through everything you'd ever need to know about Howard Hughes. the last third of the book gets a little repetitive.

Just as World War II called an earlier generation to greatness, so the climate crisis is calling today's rising youth to action: to create a better future. In Unstoppable, Bill Nye crystallizes and expands the message for which he is best known and beloved. That message is that with a combination of optimism and scientific curiosity, all obstacles become opportunities, and the possibilities of our world become limitless.

I really did like this audiobook. Bill did a great job reading his own work. The only thing I can knock him for is that in some parts he was reaffirming what I already knew. However he put it together in an entertaining concise way. I would recommend this book or audiobook to everyone. He really did inspire me, as a civil engineering student, to change the world.
