Expanding My Perspective with Nonfiction

Expanding My Perspective with Nonfiction

I first got into audiobooks because I found it easier to listen to nonfiction books than to read them. It's like listening to a highly produced podcast with no adverts. I love learning new things and listening to nonfiction audiobooks is a great and entertaining way to do so. This playlist has some of my top nonfiction audiobooks of the past couple of years.

Bad Blood

Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup

By John Carreyrou
Narrated by: Will Damron
Length: 11 hours 36 minutes

Bad Blood

“Theranos was a startup that set itself apart from the bevy of others in Silicon Valley. Its cause was noble, manufacturing revolutionary medical technology that could run a menu of blood tests on only a finger stick's worth of blood, eliminating the need for large painful needles. There was only one problem: the technology didn't exist. Painstakingly researched but still accessible to the medical layman, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist John Carreyrou investigates the meteoric rise and fall of Theranos, exploring how the company managed to fool the public, investors, board members like George Schultz and Henry Kissinger, and even Barack Obama. A must for true crime podcast fans, especially if you find yourself needing a break from the more gruesome stuff.”

Invisible Women

Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

By Caroline Criado Perez
Narrated by: Caroline Criado Perez
Length: 9 hours 24 minutes

Invisible Women

“This book is as utterly fascinating as it is frustrating and eye-opening. I blew through it in a day and a half because I simply could not stop listening to it and appreciating with rising vexation Perez's breakdown of the data at every level of the world we live in today. This is a book I wish I could share with everyone and talk about to get the ball rolling on change.”
