True Enough

By Farhad Manjoo

Narrated by Ray Porter


Why has punditry overtaken news, with so many media outlets pushing partisan agendas instead of information? Comedian Stephen Colbert’s catchword "truthiness" has captured something essential about our age: that people are more comfortable with ideas that feel true, even if the evidence for those beliefs is thin.

The Ancestor’s Tale

By Richard Dawkins

Narrated by Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward


The Ancestor’s Tale is a pilgrimage back through time – a journey on which we meet up with fellow pilgrims as we and they converge on our common ancestors. Chimpanzees join us at about six million years in the past, gorillas at seven million years, orangutans at 14 million years, as we stride on together, a growing band. The journey provides the setting for a collection of some 40 tales.

Freakonomics: Revised Edition

By Steven, Stephen Levitt, Dubner

Narrated by Stephen J. Dubner


Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life, from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing, and whose conclusions turn the conventional wisdom on its head. Thus the new field of study contained in this audiobook: Freakonomics. Levitt and co-author Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives: how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

1 thought on “Help me choose my next audiobooks

  1. I’d choose Bladerunner and A scanner darkly, mainly because they are on my to-read list too.
    Although i’m also very curious how Eragon continues in Eldest.
