Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

It’s my second book I’m listening from professor Dawkings, it’s very interesting from the beginning to the end, well put together and very interesting stories told by professors experience. I was religious person but I’m glad that my eyes are open now and I can see everything not like I used to.
Make sure you have a friend or someone that you can talk to after you Read/listen to this book because it’s hard to just let it go.

Seeking to escape the monotony he had come to endure in his job as assistant District Attorney in San Francisco, Philip Kearney needed a change. His solution came one day in a casual email from a friend: “UN has opening here for an international prosecutor doing war crimes stuff. You should apply, gotta go.”“Here” meant Pristina, Kosovo. And “stuff”—Kearney soon finds out, after landing the job despite his inexperience with international law and inability to speak any foreign languages—meant a harrowing string of investigations involving the most brutal and devastating crimes imaginable.

I downloaded this book to listen, because i grew up in this war, i have met personally most of the characters in the book.I lived through that almost twenty years ago and the way author describes it, it looks to me that it has happened yesterday. Well put together stories, i wish i didn't read it because it has turned my stomach upside down with the discoveries and the sufferings of the people there.

I wish i could give 10 stars, e true and real stories is wat makes this book very special.

Narrator job is fantastic no words to describe.

Bertrand Russell's A History of Western Philosophy serves as the perfect introduction to its subject; it remains unchallenged as the greatest account of the history of Western thought. Charting philosophy's course from the pre-Socratics up to the early twentieth century, Russell relates each philosopher and school to their respective historical and cultural contexts, providing erudite commentary throughout his invaluable survey.

I don’t write reviews very often, but I couldn’t resist this one after listening for the second time.
This book is just phenomenal, interesting and mind blowing. I can’t find words to describe how interesting and well organized it is, separated in three books ancient, medieval and to the modern times it gives you the impression that you are there living it.
Reader is simply phenomenal, I didn’t get tired of him even though is around 40 hours of listening.
Highly recommend for someone who likes Philosophy and history.

Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real-estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? Michael Lewis turns the inquiry on its head to create a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his number-one best-selling Liar’s Poker.

I have read this book 3 years ago and I downloaded just to refresh the memory, it's good book but just the heads up here there is no learning of anything unless your knowledge of business is zero, goes against the schools and it doesn't learn you anything at all. For example I have had my Final exam on The elasticity of the supply and demand, it's big topic and the book dedicates 10 seconds to it. If you like to hear all the economic in one book go for it.
