The pacing and tone of Pablo Schreiber perfectly fit Buck's world that Jack London made. I have always had a soft spot for this story since I first read it as a young boy, but with this rendition I have fallen in love again with the story, and I hugged my puppy a little tighter after finishing. will relisten at some point, which is rare for me.

Everyone knows that timing is everything. But we don't know much about timing itself. Our lives are a never-ending stream of "when" decisions: when to start a business, schedule a class, get serious about a person. Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork. Timing, it's often assumed, is an art. In When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, Pink shows that timing is really a science.

This is my second book by the author, I had read A Whole New Mind years ago when it came out, now I've listened to When. I p
deeply appreciate Mr. Pinks insights into Humanity and Psychology as well as Philosophy behind our actions and the direction he feels we need to head into.

Zachary Quinto - best known for his role as the Nimoy-approved Spock in the recent Star Trek reboot and the menacing, power-stealing serial killer, Sylar, in Heroes - brings his well-earned sci-fi credentials and simmering intensity to this audio-exclusive novella from master storyteller John Scalzi. One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone - 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don't know.

In a near future where 999 times out of 1000 you come back when you are murdered, what would that look like? We have a good answer here.

John Scalzi has written a piece so profound and terse that it reads like a good episode of a crime show meets The Twilight Zone.

Zachary Quinto delivers this work in a way so perfect I can't see anyone else reading it. His ability to alter his intonations and give differing accents while not leaving the primary voice help tell this story as it should be told.

Colonel Chris Hadfield has spent decades training as an astronaut and has logged nearly 4000 hours in space. During this time he has broken into a Space Station with a Swiss army knife, disposed of a live snake while piloting a plane, and been temporarily blinded while clinging to the exterior of an orbiting spacecraft. The secret to Col. Hadfield's success - and survival - is an unconventional philosophy he learned at NASA: prepare for the worst and enjoy every moment of it.

It took a few chapters to get into the Narrator's speech as he isn't what i am used to. But he actually fit the character and storytelling very nicely.

The story itself held me greatly, normally a book of this size with my schedule would take 2 weeks to get through, but I found myself so drawn in that I didn't want an ending, and I finished inside 5 days of starting.
