Your body is teeming with tens of trillions of microbes. It's an entire world, a colony full of life. In other words, you contain multitudes. These microscopic companions sculpt our organs, protect us from diseases, guide our behaviour and bombard us with their genes. They also hold the key to understanding all life on earth. In I Contain Multitudes, Ed Yong opens our eyes and invites us to marvel at ourselves and other animals in a new light, less as individuals and more as thriving ecosystems.

This is a great book with a great narration. Really loved the part where the author explains about how our habit of sanitizing us is affecting us in a negative way. Must recommend for curious and open minded people.

Yuval Noah Harari, author of the best-selling Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. Now, in Homo Deus, he examines our future with his trademark blend of science, history, philosophy and every discipline in between. Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the 21st century - from overcoming death to creating artificial life.

Again I am impressed by the Author because this book gives and discusses many ideas which were either new to me or half known. And prediction wise the author's view on the future is the point to consider. Transformation of humankind and it's belief are the main crux of this book. The performance by the narrator is too good, keeping me interested throughout the book. I will be starting the next book of the author soon.

I am really surprised to read that such personalities were in Mumbai controlling the nerves of the underworld. Author has compiled the stories with a good research and created the book in an interesting way. Narrators are really good at conveying the stories. Especially Radhika Apte. Must read for everyone. Interesting and captivating.

Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are vanishing cats and smoky bars, lonely hearts and mysterious women, baseball and the Beatles, woven together to tell stories that speak to us all. Marked by the same wry humor that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.

Loved every story. This is the first time I am hearing and reading Haruki Murakami. Absolutely amazing stories and the narration was equally awesome. Hearing this book was the time spent well. After reading this, I am really going for all other books of the author. This was an amazing experience for me, the stories were different and from another perspective. This made me believe that story telling is the epitome of art

In My Gita, acclaimed mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik demystifies The Bhagavad Gita for the contemporary reader. His unique approach - thematic rather than verse by verse - makes the ancient treatise eminently accessible. In a world that seems spellbound by argument over dialogue, vi-vaad over sam-vaad, Devdutt highlights how Krishna nudges Arjuna to understand rather than judge his relationships.

Derek O'Brien dominated Indian television as the country's most well-known quizmaster for over two decades, asking questions to millions across India. Now he plays a key role in the Rajya Sabha, raising difficult questions from the front row in the Upper House. One of the most candid, courageous voices of the Opposition, O'Brien is articulate, incisive and provocative - qualities that are apparent in his writing.

Author has really nicely described every aspect of the Parliament. It was great to hear hear whats going on in current political scenario with many of the Myths surrounding current government. Hats off to the narrator because I really enjoyed this book and it was soothing to hear the voice. The book was neatly prepared with each chapter being the best.
