Unexplained Phenomena  

Roger Bacon was born in England in 1219, and while he is primarily remembered as a philosopher, linguist, educator, and scientist, he also spent a fair amount of time exploring the art of alchemy. The Mirror of Alchemy is one of the many texts he produced on the subject during his lifetime. 
The chapter titles include “Of the Definitions of Alchemy”, “Of the Natural Principles and Procreation of Minerals”, “Out of What Things the Matter of Elixir Must Be More Nearly Extracted”, “Of the Manner of Working and of Moderating and Continuing the Fire”, “Of the Quality of the Vessel and Furnace”, “Of the Accidental and Essential Colors Appearing in the Work”, and “How to Make Projection of the Medicine Upon Any Imperfect Body”.

Audible user reviews

Audible’s users are totally in love with the service!

“One of my favorite apps. I drive alot and Audible lets me get through a ton of books. They are great about returning books I don’t like. I also love that I can put it on any device and pick up right where I left off.”

“Just wonderful, I never had time to read except in the 10 minutes before bed, by then I’m already falling asleep and have to re-read the next night as it didn’t retain. Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning. I’m getting through all the books I’ve been meaning to read for years in just a couple of months.”
