In the boot were six homemade pipe bombs, all linked to detonate at the same time from a single call on a brand-new pay-as-you-go phone found on the target. Special Branch also found Chinese Type 56 assault rifles with eight full magazines of ammunition. His target was a local school. He planned to attack two coaches of teenagers returning home after a school trip to France. Approximately 60 children, their accompanying teachers and their waiting parents. He was going to kill them all.

Firstly, the narrator should get a standing ovation for his performance. He definitely made the book.
Now to the story. It gripped me from chapter 1 and I just wanted more. I am gutted it finished.
Such a great read to learn about the secret world that goes on around us.

An inspiring personal story of redemption, second chances, and the transformative power within us all, from the founder and CEO of the nonprofit charity: water. In the tradition of such best-selling books as Shoe Dog and Mountains Beyond Mountains, Thirst is a riveting account of how to build a better charity, a better business, a better life - and a gritty tale that proves it’s never too late to make a change.

This book won’t make you rich just like a book on soccer won’t make you play in the premier league but it has definitely taught me how to be smarter with my shares and what to look for when investing in the future.
Great narration and flow.

I used to think “changing culture” would be step 1 in managing change until I listened to this book but I was very wrong.
Very informative book which is 100% accurate and has great examples. Must read for any business going through or needing to go through change, wanting to grow or experiencing a different market.

A forester's fascinating stories backed by the latest scientific research illustrate how trees nurture and talk to each other. Are trees social beings? In this international best seller - which has sold more than 320,000 copies in Germany alone - forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz is based on the true story of Lale and Gita Sokolov, two Slovakian Jews who survived Auschwitz and eventually made their home in Australia. In that terrible place, Lale was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - literally scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust.

This is the only money guide you'll ever need. That's a bold claim, given there are already thousands of finance books on the shelves. So what makes this one different? You'll get a step-by-step formula: open this account, then do this; call this person, and say this; invest money here and not there. All with a glass of wine in your hand.

I never thought a book about finances could keep me gripped but it did and I have even listened to it twice to make sure I understood the steps. Great read.
