But nothing could quite prepare him for the challenge he must now face: his first year of middle school.

    Ben Sasse...claims at the outset that The Vanishing American Adult is a nonpartisan audiobook: he is diagnosing and attempting to solve a problem that affects both Democrats and Republicans alike, since a lack of self-reliance among young people threatens the future of the whole country. While serving as president of Midland University in Omaha, Nebraska, Sasse encountered a population of undergraduates who were in a profound state of arrested development, unable to properly mature into adulthood.

    Born to a black mother and a white father in 1984, Noah and his family navigated many unusual challenges, on top of the usual hardships faced by black families in that time and place. Noah's parents, an African woman and a Swiss man, had an unusual relationship. They never married, and Noah isn't sure to what degree they were even romantically involved. (They were, at the very least, good friends). His mother was keen to have a child, and his father was to be a glorified sperm donor.

    Gundry says that a plant protein called lectin is responsible for obesity, and many autoimmune disorders. Gundry offers a diet that eliminates lectins, GMOs, and other toxins. This diet will allow people to reduce weight, improve health, and eliminate a wide range of conditions including diabetes, heart disease, lupus, and more. Lectins are plant toxins. Plants evolved lectins as poisons to discourage insects from eating plant seeds or other parts of the plant. Lectins are in most plants, and can cause sickness in humans.

Although this group claimed their taking over was only temporary, America became the Republic of Gilead.

    In order to bring its origin to light, Rebecca Skloot weaves together several narrative threads. One is primarily focused on Henrietta Lacks, the woman who, without her knowledge, became central to 20th century biomedical research. Another is the birth of modern biomedical research itself, and its roots in the American eugenics movement. Finally, there is the impact of this research, both of the Lacks Family and on society at large. Skloot divides the book into 3 parts: Life, Death, and Immortality.

    Kahneman uses this audiobook to explore how these decision-making processes work. He characterizes the type of rapid-fire, thoughtless reacting, that constitutes most thought as "System 1" thinking, and more reflective, strategic thinking as "System 2." Examples of System 1 managed functions include simple arithmetic, basic reading comprehension, and determining the relative distances and sizes of objects. System 2, by contrast, handles difficult tasks such as parallel parking, walking at a faster-than-normal speed.

In the book's preface, Greene argues that, at least on the surface, the quest for power has been demonized, the end result of a culture that frowns upon those who seem too eager to get too far ahead in life.
