Being Human - Julia Gari Weiss
This is a stunning, fantastic collection of poetry. It is absolutely perfect. There is so much heart in each poem. It is truly amazing.

Weiss has a gift for expressing anger, frustration, and grief so flawlessly in words in a way that I have not previously experienced. Her poetry covers many subjects with an emphasis on family illness.

The poem, "Being Human" is probably my favorite, but each one has a way of ripping at your heartstrings while at the same time infiltrating your brain.

Absolutely beautiful.

Being Human: Life Lessons from the Frontiers of Science
Being Human: Life Lessons from the Front... Being Human: Life Lessons from the Frontiers of Science - Robert M. Sapolsky A nicely presented lecture on the nexus between psychology and neuroscience and the author never loses the listener with obscure names of brain regions, hormone names, or body parts.

There is a theme the author presses through out the lecture and that is the conclusions are only as good as the data set the conclusions are based on.

If you ever watch a movie or TV show and they are trying to show how wise a professor of Psychology or Neuroscience is the character in the show will be relating one of the experiments that would have been covered in this lecture. (I'm thinking about the truly marvelous movie, "Boyhood" and the Psychology professor is relating a story that is covered within this lecture).

For me, most (if not all) the stories I have come across elsewhere in my readings, but this lecture series has all the stories in one place and without any jargon to confuse the listener and is given by a lecturer who really knows how to tell a story.

(I got this lecture on the "deal of the day" for $2.95 and at the price it is well worth it. I would imagine Audible will discount it from time to time and I would recommend it at that discounted price).
