"I couldn't get a job playing a lobster on ice skates!" His #acting career was going nowhere, after years of bit parts in #movies and on #TV. Then he did an audition for Dos Equis #beer. He pretended to arm wrestle Castro. Young men were waiting to audition. He said "interesting?" Got the part. TowerReview.com He narrates the #audiobook. #Memoir #Hollywood #NYC #LosAngeles

Half of Americans are addicted to at least one behavior. We obsess over our emails, #Instagram likes, and #Facebook feeds; we binge on #TV episodes and #YouTube videos; and we spend an average of three hours each day using our smartphones. In this revolutionary book, Adam Alter, a professor of #psychology and marketing at NYU, tracks the rise of behavioral addiction, and explains why so many of today's products are irresistible.

2011 #Medical #Thriller predicts 2017 #science breakthrough. On #RonHoward's #NatGeo show BREAKTHROUGHS May 16, it was revealed that a deactivated #HIV was being used to transport genes across the blood/brain barrier.

Ron talked about #longevity science previously, and the pine tree gene was also mentioned in a new #health #book. 🔮⚗📲

"True friendship is rare." Finding people who agree is rare too, if the knowledge is new. Most people are slow to change, when presented with new evidence. And studies show that people who get their #news from #SocialMedia believe they know more than they do. Extend your #reading time with #audiobooks and you'll be more informed than most. And entertained too. TowerReview.com #science #psychology #biography #mystery #philosophy

New studies have concluded that iron is toxic at high doses and causes #Alzheimers and #Parkinsons in older Americans. No one over 25 should eat cereal fortified with iron. Why #America, which has the highest number of such cases? Because only in the #USA do all flours have added iron. 😬 #Meat is full of iron, and we eat more than any country. #News media not reporting this! Author #Harvard geneticist.

This is a scary book, all true. An HBomb was dropped on #NC? Yes. It nearly detonated when a B52 broke up in mid air in 1961. In #Arkansas a missile caught fire due to a fuel leak from a dropped wrench in 1980. USAF wouldn't confirm a warhead even existed, but they couldn't find it after the fuel explosion. #PBS did a recent documentary based on this book and #audiobook. Chilling. #Safety? Illusion. #True #horror #military #history TowerReview.com

Jeff Guinn examines Jones‘s life, extramarital affairs, drug use, and fraudulent faith healing. 900 of his followers died in the jungles of Guyana in South America—including almost three hundred infants and #children—after being ordered to swallow a cyanide-laced #drink. Why would anyone? #Belief. Many today believe the #Earth is flat. They hate #science. They drink HFCS and eat trans-fat #food. Smoke. Murder. #Funny & Sad. Sick. TowerReview.com

#Audiobook #history of medical #marijuana covers the uses and abuses from a social and #science perspective. Whether #Trump builds a wall and curtails availability is not covered. Predates his rise, but is essential #reading nontheless. #Goodreads #vape choice.

#HitMakers reveals the #psychology behind why we follow the most #popular things, which are rarely the best. #Marketing has become everything, and those with the largest audience (like the #Kardashians) win ?. With everyone chasing the same things this means far fewer winners, and bigger rewards for "the microscopic few." The #audio #book is a shocker and wakeup call on how #SocialMedia obsession works.

Great #audiobook narrated by actor Bronson Pinchot. Saw a video game reminded me of it (Ark Survivor.) #Science knowledge is fading fast, with a return to believing the Earth is only 6000 years old, that man and #dinosaurs walked together. Pierce shows how an anti-science craze has swept America, with flat Earth #videos now viral on #Youtube. How will their #kids get #jobs in a high #tech future?

Narrator Kevin Kenerly sets a commanding tone of this visionary morality tale…the #novel illuminates thoughts on #race and #class in the unique way only science fiction can pull off, and Kenerly‘s naturally strong voice is aided by his gift for wry engagement, his subtle yet enthusiastic steering of the story arc, and his effortless creation of both male and female characters. #audiobooks #scifi #jackvance #sf TowerReview.com

Stunning study of how the misconception of there being no link between #violence and video #games became so widespread. Proven links between #gaming violence and pre-teens had been established, and has resulted in both suicides and mass murders. The games carry an 18 and older warning, but this has no more effect of keeping them out of below 18 year old hands than gun laws have with criminals. #Parenting #psychology #science #Profit 💰#Greed
