    I read several biographies but have yet to read this one; How do you rate? Does it bring anything new to the table so to speak?

    Just started it, but based on what I've read so far, I am going to enjoy it.

    I'm gonna start with this one. Just bought it. I have been working out, so now I'm able to turn the pages and hold the book in my hands! I've been sleeping badly too, so I hope this helps. If not I'll try reading it while listening to Parsifal

    If audio books count then Sandman - Neil Gaiman and others and the Complete Sherlock Holmes stories narrated by Stephen Fry.

    The Decline of the West: Form and Actuality (Volume I of II) - Oswald Spengler in Hardcover English.

    I have both volumes in hardcover in German but both my English copies were in paperback. I am happy to finally find them in hardcover. Now I need to find volume II “Perspectives of World History” in hardcover, keep watch please my friends.

    Does Fry do a good job with the narration? I think the kids would like these but I felt he was rather lazy with the last book he put out audio narration wise.

    Hope you enjoy regardless.

    I bought this book after listening to this interview with the author.
