I have never been a big fan of the more juvenile aspects of his show. But over the years he has built a reputation as being one of the best interviewers, if not the best. Of this I agree. This is a collection of those interviews with original lead ins. Worth a read.

This book is definitely preaching to the converted but it's reassuring to read a voice that flys in the face of the current idea prevalent that the louder you shout without any supporting facts it will still be taken as true. Hence chapters on brexit, lgbtq rights, feminism, nanny state, trump et al as he pierces the right wing bubble. An absorbing easy enlightening read, but as i say it's probably not me who should be reading this book.

This book is stuffed with great lines

Libby1 Great description of Van the Man. He‘s from Northern Ireland (where I now live) and he‘s known here as quite a prickly character! 3w
Minervasbutler @Libby1 So I hear. Genius, of course, but a smidgeon on the grumpy side lol 3w

⭐️⭐️⭐️ After years of therapy, Stern, realizing that he doesn‘t need to be so outlandish & gross, shifts his interview style. He‘s still shocking, but more thoughtful & respectful. While some of these interviews are compelling, 500+ pages of transcripts & short introductions is daunting. I don‘t listen to his show, but I think this book might bore avid listeners out of their skulls. I wish he‘d pen a full-on memoir. I‘d read the heck out of that!

AmyG Howard during the OJ years was some of the best entertainment. A true highlight for me. Now I‘m more of a Beth Stern fan. 😻 3w
britt_brooke @AmyG Beth does seem amazing! They seem like a really great couple and I love that she‘s gotten him into animal rescue. 🐾🐾 3w
AmyG Agreed. They are just so sweet. I follow them on IG. 3w

The sweetest, most empathetic and thoughtful, super intelligent, and devastatingly handsome little blondie has a birthday today. Can‘t believe my first baby is 7!! 😭

We spent the morning at the park, will go out to dinner tonight, and have his party tomorrow. Can‘t wait to celebrate with family and friends!

readordierachel Happy birthday to him! 4w

Christine Happy birthday wishes, and enjoy the weekend! (I will confess that I first noticed the book you tagged and then started reading “The sweetest, most empathetic and thoughtful...” and thought you were talking about its author and thought “Whoa...really??” 😂) 4w

arubabookwoman My "baby" (youngest of 5) shares your eldest's birthday, except mine turned 29. I reminded him of the old saying from my youth that you can't trust anyone over 30-telling him he had only one more year of trustworthiness. (My oldest turns 41 next month, which I can hatdly believe.) 4w

How To Say Goodbye In Robot | Natalie Standiford
Pickpick

How To Say Goodbye In Robot, is a great book and I recommend reading it slow because there are cliffhangers on each chapter. It's a heart warming tale of two lovers facing the odds of "ghost boy's" father

Samantha_Forsyth Coolio, sounds like a good book.🙂 1mo

Now accepting audiobook recs!

My husband & I are driving 3-4 hours (one way) to go camping in the wild woods of Vermont this weekend. Something brand-y NEW would be best!

We like fantasy, sci-fi, memoirs, & narrative non-fic.

TIA!

Crazeedi @Trashcanman I love Mary roach!! 1mo
Bookwormjillk Sleeping Beauties isn‘t brand new, but newish. Not new at all but favorites for that type of trip are The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and A Walk In The Woods. 1mo
audraelizabeth I love neil gaiman as a narrator.. 1mo
Kimberlone My bf and I had a fun time listening to this on a road trip last year 1mo
Laughterhp I really enjoyed on audio 1mo
Laughterhp This book was really interesting on audio too and I don‘t read nonfiction/true crime. 1mo
Tungstensmum Just finished listening to this one - it‘s a short listen, about 4 hours. Very different from what I normally read and I felt transported to a country/area I don‘t know much about. It‘s more about complicated relationships that murder, but yeah, there‘s also some murder. A bit like a fictional memoir. (edited) 1mo
shanaqui I love almost all BBC radioplay adaptations. They're usually abridged, but beautifully done. Their LOTR adaptation is my gold standard for audiobooks; most of the voices are how I hear the books when I read them, now, in a good way. There's something delicious about the narrator's pronunciation of words. Also the BBC's Dorothy L Sayers adaptations are great. 1mo
monalyisha @Trashcanman I like M.R. but haven‘t yet done “Gulp”! I‘ll add it to the list of possibilities. Thanks! 1mo
mhillis I rarely finish an audiobook 😂 but I liked 1mo
Hooked_on_books Gulp is free this week from audiobook sync. It‘s great. I have a link to the website on my post from today. I think I just finished the perfect audiobook for a road trip in the north: 1mo
