Revolutionary Wealth by Alvin and Heidi Toffler

Audio Books - Listen to Books -Recommendations

On A Pale Horse by Piers Anthony, Copyright 1983
Copyright 1996 by Recorded Books and Narrated by George Guidall
Piers Anthony is a master of science fiction and fantasy. If you want an excellent take on death and how the job works, this is your book. If you want some insight into the meaning of death and a lighter take on the outcome, this is a good start. If you want a great story with lots of humor, action, and suspense this book delivered it all. The best part of all is that you can truly enjoy the book while doing something else because you have one of the best if not the best narrator reading it to you, actually acting it to you. If you have any interest in life and death, morality and darkness, love and evil, or just need great entertainment this books comes at the very top of recommended books to enjoy by listening.

Very Highly Recommended - Five Stars +

Energy Policy

Gusher of Lies - The Dangerous Delusions of “Energy Independence” Copyright 2008 By Robert Bryce, Perseus Book Group, Philadelphia, PA

The current rage of energy independence touted by politicians and media is either a lie or delusion.  The science demonstrated by Bryce on this subject concludes that it is not currently possible to become energy independent and our efforts to manage the oil producers with our military has done nothing but raised the cost of the resource.  Rather than work toward environmental dreams of solar, wind, bio-fuel, and geothermal he suggests that we accept the interdependence on oil that modern energy consumption requires.

If you want to get a clear view of the reality of energy use and the solutions this is a good source of information. 

 

 

 

Society

Computer Technology

Rule The Web by Mark Frauenfelder, Copyright 2007 - Learn about all types of ways to improve your web user experienc e.

Economics

Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt, Copyright 1979 - The title explains the book. If you want to understand the laws of economics and to see the folly of our current governmental approach to managing the economy, just read this book. It is not light reading, but not the usual dry and sleep inducing circuitous wanderings of many economic tomes. This book should be the main text for a basic economics course taught in high schools.

Literature

Why Read the Classics by Italo Calvino, copyright 1999 - ISBN: 0679415246 - Calvino loved books, the classics in particular, and his essays on his favorite classics make you want to read them as well. His enthusiasm for life and stories comes through each of the essays and his chosen list give you a directed reading list for years to come. While you are at it, consider reading some of his works of fiction. My favorite is Cosmicomics.
