Born in the Old City of Sana’a, Yemen, to a pair of middle-class doctors, Mohammed Al Samawi was a devout Muslim raised to think of Christians and Jews as his enemy. But when Mohammed was 23, he secretly received a copy of the Bible, and what he read cast doubt on everything he’d previously believed.

I heard this story first from Daniel Pincus who is one of the main characters in the book. Hearing it from Muhammad himself was one of the most emotional and enlightening literary experiences I've ever had. I have burst into laughter and cried many time while listening to this book. Muhammad's story is a story the entire world should hear. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! also great narration by Cohen.

In Skyfaring, airline pilot and flight romantic Mark Vanhoenacker shares his irrepressible love of flying on a journey from day to night, from new ways of mapmaking and the poetry of physics to the names of winds and the nature of clouds. Here, anew, is the simple wonder and transcendent joy of motion and the remarkable new perspectives that height and distance bestow on everything we love.

I loved the authors articulation of the marvel of flying and aviation. He offers an amazing perspective from the other side, that of the the aircrews and their relationship with flying. Mark's love affair with flying has made me understand a lot of what I felt and experienced whenever I flew as a passenger but was unable to articulate into ideas and concepts which make me marvel the spectacle of aviation Everytime a plane leaves the ground or lands back on it. Must read for aviation enthusiasts and also those who are not there quite yet.
