Me gusto mucho este libro porque es muy claro y conciso a la hora de darte claves sobre como escribir tu primera novela.
Te explica paso a paso como hacerlo, desde la gramatica hasta el esforzarte por escribir aunque sea unos cientos de palabras diarios.

Desde luego es muy recomendable si te estas planteado escribir tu primera novela, o tu primera historia. Te da las claves basicas sobre como hacerlo, y sobre todo que hacer en caso de que te quedes bloqueado.

Me gusta mucho la voz del narrador, Alfonso Sales. Tengo varios libros narrados por el y tiene la capacidad de hacerlo muy amenos

I am a physics student myself, and I do listen to a lot of physics and science books. However, is the first time I laughed so hard when listening to complex concepts -which the author, by the way, manages to make real simple and mundane.

I truly recommend this book. Its very well written and engaging, and is a fascinating topic. Whether you know your science or not, it won't matter, after listening to this book you will feel that you truly have a good understanding.

Philosophy for busy people. Listen to this succinct account of the philosophy of Locke in just one hour. Much of Locke鈥檚 thought we would now regard as common sense. One of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers; his philosophy was to lay the foundations of empiricism with its belief that our knowledge of the world is based on experience. Locke鈥檚 work introduced the idea of liberal democracy 鈥 a concept that has become the shibboleth of Western civilisation.

Great little listen. It will explain you in just over an hour the philosophy of Locke. But also the life of the man himself. I did learn that he was friends with Newton. What a small world!

I like this series very much. I will definitely buy some more from the same series as soon as I get some credits and catch up with my audiobooks.

Again, very recommended.

This essay deals with the topic of death. It covers a number of famous poisoners and the poisons they dispatched to their victims. In addition to the mechanisms of drug action, the subject of apoptosis (programmed cell death) is also discussed. This essay is therefore a resource which can aid students and the layperson interested in drug/toxin action.

amazingly well-written. Full of stories from the author about death, toxins, and in general, things that can kill from a chemist perspective

Doctor Hall is truly an amazing character, that not only knows his chemistry, but also knows how to write it into a compelling text.
Well worth a reading, specially if you like science.

For years, the third moon in the Alphane system was used as a psychiatric hospital. But when war broke out between Earth and the Alphanes, the hospital was left unguarded and the inmates set up their own society, made up of competing factions based on their particular mental illnesses. When Earth sends a delegation to take back the colony, they find enclaves of depressives, schizophrenics, paranoiacs, and others uniting to repel what they see as a foreign invasion.

i have to say, if it wasn't for the narrator, i wouldn't have been able to stomach this story.

I am a big fan of k. Dick and I've read most of his work, but I was somewhat disappointed with it. Specially because it spends very long time building the characters, but the end lacks any substance with respect of the story itself.

In this collection of lectures that Richard Feynman originally gave in 1963, unpublished during his lifetime, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist discusses several of the ultimate questions of science. What is the nature of the tension between science and religious faith? Why does uncertainty play such a crucial role in the scientific imagination? Is this really a scientific age?

Classical physics is about how things move, why they move, and how they work. It's about making sense of motion, gravity, light, heat, sound, electricity, and magnetism, and seeing how these phenomena interweave to create the rich tapestry of everyday experience. It is, in short, the hidden order of the universe.

Great ideas of classical physics for regular people; it should say.
Short lectures, about half hour each, so they are easy to pause and leave for letter when your brain starts to overload with information.
That being said, the lectures are amazingly well-written, and not matter how much or how little you know about physics, this series will grip you and leave you wanting more.

really, really recommended. I cannot stress this enough, You should give it a listen.

Good performance by Professor S. Pollock as well. Very happy about that

Men had built cities before, but never such a city as Diaspar; for millennia its protective dome shut out the creeping decay and danger of the world outside. Once, it ruled the stars. But then, as legend had it, the Invaders came, driving humanity into this last refuge. It takes one man, a Unique, to smash the legend and discover the true nature of the Invaders.

This novel is based in the far far future of what is left of the human race. The story of Alvin and the complex patterns of the city is really well written and amazing. He along will change the fate of humankind

Really enjoyed it!
