- Ten Reasons We're Wrong About The World - And Why Things Are Better Than You Think
- By: Hans Rosling, Ola Rosling, Anna Rosling Rönnlund
- Narrated by: Simon Slater
- Length: 7 hrs and 59 mins
Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of carrying only opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. When asked simple questions about global trends - why the world's population is increasing; how many young women go to school; how many of us live in poverty - we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.
Not really suitable for an audio book

Good but I remain unchanged.
Begins with some shock value but then becomes a repetition of the same high level concept. The world is economically better than it was before.
Screwtape Proposes a Toast
- By: C. S. Lewis
- Narrated by: Peter Noble
- Length: 4 hrs and 3 mins
One of the most popular books ever to come from the pen of C. S. Lewis was written in the name of Screwtape, a senior devil experienced in the art of luring his 'patients' on earth to their own damnation in service of 'our father below' - and training others to do the same. Screwtape's correspondence with his nephew, an apprentice devil, came into Lewis' hands, he said, by a route he would not disclose, and many a listener has finished the collection longing for more of the insights they gained from its wisdom.

As always CS Lewis delivers his points with precision.
"He who has God and everything else has no more than he who has God alone".
