    I had heard about The Knack for quite some time, and how important it is for any business owner to have. I was delighted to find that The Knack has been released again as Street Smarts and it is as relevant as can be.

    I was captivated by this audiobook. The author answered so many questions I had as a business owner. I found the examples he presents to be interesting, useful and yet still entertaining. I highly recommend it for every entrepreneur.

    People starting out in business tend to seek step-by-step formulas or rules, but in reality there are no magic bullets. Rather, says veteran company-builder Norm Brodsky, there's a mentality that helps street- smart entrepreneurs solve problems and pursue opportunities as they arise. Brodsky shares his hard-earned wisdom every month in Inc. magazine, in the hugely popular "Street Smarts" column he cowrites with Bo Burlingham. Now they've adapted their best advice into a comprehensive guide for anyone running a small business.

  • Talk Like TED: The 9 Public Speaking Secrets of the World's Top Minds

    "Gallo cuts to the chase..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I enjoy watching TED talks and enjoy making presentations at work and at my local Toastmaster Club. Any advice I can get to improve my talks is always welcome. This book reflects hours of canalization of the greatest TED talks to reveal the commonalities of those greatest speakers.
    We start out with 3 laws of the “most engaging and persuasive presentations:”
    *Emotional –Touch My Heart
    *Novel- Teach Me something New
    *Memorable- Present Content in Ways I’ll Never Forget

    I first read Gallo’s book 10 Simple Secrets of the World’s Greatest Business Communicators in 2005. That book helped me improve my speaking with such practical and easy to apply tips that everyone noticed my improvement immediately. He had me when he said something I have always agreed with. When I would attend a seminar or training session and a new speaker would begin, I would always begin with a groan: oh no, more dumb jokes. Brain science now knows that we decide within a few seconds if the speaker is credible and if we are going to pay attention to him/her.

    That’s where the TED talks come in. They all start in the middle of the speech! They get right to the most interesting part of their topic and work backwards or sideways! How can you NOT listen!

    So after studying all these great speeches, Gallo comes up with 10 commonalities, aka Secrets, that I can apply immediately. He talks about using my passion for a topic, developing the ability to tell an intriguing story, internalize and rehearse my content paying attention to my vocal delivery, developing a catchy, current title, delivering a jaw-dropping moment, keeping even serious content light so the brain can remember and digest it, the importance of timing, painting a mental picture in the mind of your audience, narrowing your topic and how rehearsing develops authenticity.

    My next presentation will astonish people.

  • The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs: How to Be Insanely Great in Front of Any Audience

    "A book that will change the way you present"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Where does The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?


    The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs
    My presentations will never be the same! I learned so much from this book. I listened to this book in one sitting! Steve Jobs’ presentations catapulted him to messianic status and Apple to being the epicycloid of the smart phone industry. Although his presentations seems informal and spontaneous, this book clearly shows a pattern that Jobs used and emphasizes the hours of practice that produced these insanely great presentations. Toastmasters International has been helping people learn and practice tools to help them become great speakers for decades. This book takes those principles of gestures, eye contact, using a prop, writing it out, organizing the content, using vocal variety and the pause, and gives examples of where jobs used them and what he said.
    Then comes the “insanely great” part: Jobs threw in a “Holy Smokes!!!” moment and reinterpreted the use of slides. How to create the HS moment is included and can be adapted to any topic. For anyone who uses PowerPoint in their presentations, this book is a must! Learning how to use the slides like Jobs did can change the audience from yawning to inspired.
    When I want to increase my understanding of a topic, I borrow the book from the library and buy the Audible book. I listen as I read. This narrator made a mess of the book. Many paragraphs were totally skipped, he paraphrased and changed words. He totally skipped examples from Steve’s speeches. He read so slowly that when I listened to the book alone, I had to change the reading rate to 1.5.



  • Saying It Well: Touching Others with Your Words

    "Great Lives: Chalres Swindoll"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would promote it as another book in Swindoll's series on men of God.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have been reading the other books in Charles Swindoll’s series about great men of God, then this is a must read. He continues his series with the biography of himself. All the discs in Part 1 except one small portion cover his life before he was called through the early days of his ministry. Part 2 covers every right decision he made to arrive in the beautiful life that he still enjoys today with added information on speaking. He tells us how blessed he was to have his wife, his children and all the churches to which he was called. He had the same struggles raising his children that many of us have and he helps us understand that although a circumstance may seem bad, it is all for God’s glory. This narrative is especially helpful for those who are evaluating God’s decision to bring them into the ministry and those who are just beginning their life in the ministry. I am a born again Christian and really appreciate the radio ministry that he has and how it can be a benefit to millions of people.The reader was a perfect fit for the topic of the book. His voice was pleasant, easy to listen to and helped make repetitive information easier to listen to. He added the credibility needed for an autobiography of a minister.With that said, I also deliver speeches and always appreciate help and tips from others on “How to Say It.” The information that Swindoll provides on this topic could fit onto one disk. It is so cloaked with stories of himself that you might have to go back to catch the paragraph or two that he has to offer on speaking. The information is in the line of be sincere, be yourself and speak from your heart. I will never listen to these discs again for information on speaking. It was like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

  • "the mystery of the missing workbook"

    18 of 18 helpful votes

    It is apparently a deep, dark secret that Audible doesn't wish us to know, but in spite of their failure to provide a pdf to accompany this book, the author herself does so on her website. She provides a free 10 page pdf "workbook" with the information that other reviewers lamented the lack of. I found this through a google search on the book's title and posted the url in a review I submitted previously. Audible did not see fit to publish that review (deep, dark secrets, I'm telling you), but I'm trying again. Google it for yourself, but be sure to select the link that lists 'Workbook and Audio files" (easy, Audible, it's not the audiobook) since I couldn't find it when I selected the link to her homepage.

    As I said, my previous review, created specifically to provide this information, was quashed by Audible censors, but here we go again. Do your worst Audible.

    What if charisma could be taught? For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial. What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.

    In this intriguing business novel, which illustrates state-of-the-art economic theory, Alex Rogo is a UniCo plant manager whose factory and marriage are failing. To revitalize the plant, he follows piecemeal advice from an elusive former college professor who teaches, for example, that reduction in the efficiency of some plant operations may make the entire operation more productive. Alex's attempts to find the path to profitability and to engage his employees in the struggle involve the listener; and thankfully the authors' economic models.
