This is another example of a book that was written for the audio book format. You MUST listen to this one. Jon Stewart and the rest of the Daily Show cast do an awesome job of running though american history and keeping you laughing the whole time. Wether your a Democrat or Republican I am sure you will enjoy listening to this great audio book. It is just extremely smart and funny.

Mike Daisey worked at Amazon.com for nearly two years during the dot-com frenzy of the late nineties. Now that his nondisclosure agreement has expired, he can tell the real story - one that blends tech culture, hero worship, cat litter, Albanian economics, and venture capitalism into a surreal cocktail of delusion.

This audio book was not only one of the most funny things I have ever listed to but it was also one of the most interesting. I learned a ton about amazon the flaws of lots of large companies from a mistreated employees point of view. This audio book is why I love this format. I could never imagine reading this book. It would just not be the same at all. It would be like reading the lyrics to your favorite song as oppose to listening to it. You have to hear the music.

With characteristic exuberance, Stephen Hawking invites us to be fellow travelers on this extraordinary voyage through spacetime, as he seeks "to combine Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and Richard Feynman's idea of multiple histories into one complete unified theory that will describe everything that happens in the universe."

This book was full of really great concepts and ideas that got me thinking and inspired. Although I was lost a couple times throughout the book, most of the time the ideas where very simply put using everyday metaphors anyone would understand.
