Already internationally acclaimed for his elegant, lucid writing on the most challenging notions in modern physics, Sean Carroll is emerging as one of the greatest humanist thinkers of his generation as he brings his extraordinary intellect to bear not only on the Higgs boson and extra dimensions but now also on our deepest personal questions. Where are we? Who are we? Are our emotions, our beliefs, and our hopes and dreams ultimately meaningless out there in the void?

Dark Sun continues to be the most sought-after of the classic TSR Dungeons & Dragons campaign settings, and this third release in the five-part Prism Pentad will continue to bring old and new fans alike into the magic-scarred deserts of Athas. In order to finally defeat Borys, the Dragon of Athas, Sadira will have to reach the Pristine Tower - the citadel from which the dragon was born. But the same dark forces that created Borys still haunt the smoldering ruins.

Under a previous sun, Athas teemed with life. The sorcerer-king, after obtaining immortality for himself, united all lands under the power of his magic. But power-hungry overlords have carved the lands into pieces - setting themselves up as sorcerer-kings--and survival depends on the optimism of three steadfast people.

Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than America. You could say we're the number one nation at being the best at greatness. But as perfect as America is in every single way, America is broken! And we can't exchange it because we're 236 years past the 30-day return window. Look around - we don't make anything anymore, we've mortgaged our future to China, and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to bow before foreign leaders.

Very entertaining and incredible narration. I didn't expect much but I thought I might learn something from the book. It's hard to trust anything that's being said, so that part was disappointing.
