    Garrison Keillor is the consummate storyteller, gifted with the rare ability, both in print and in performance, to hold an audience spellbound with his tales of ordinary people whose lives contain extraordinary moments of humor, tenderness, and grace. This exclusive recording of Garrison Keillor reading a carefully edited abridgement of the book also includes a few segments taken from live performances recorded during a fundraising tour for public radio stations in 1985.

    Glenn says: "A great shot of Garrison Keillor..."
    "Great Material - Flat delivery"
    Overall

    If you love the radio show as I do, you will come to realize how much the response of the audience adds to GK's stories. This title would be more enjoyable as a printed book, but left me flat as an audio title.

    This irreverent new audiobook will explain how to turn your encounters with idiots into learning experiences. You'll discover the true definition of "idiot" and why it refers to a person's behavior rather than the individual, how to identify if you are an idiot, why ignoring idiots won't make them go away, preventative actions you can take to deflect idiot attacks, and how to deal with them once and for all!

    Overall

    From the somewhat irrelevant stories to the poor voice talent, this audio book left me none the wiser. It does make a few points along the way, but doesn’t present any “aha” moments. Even when it gets close to presenting an original idea the chapter ends.

    The reading itself was difficult to listen to because of the obvious edits, choppy reading style and slurred speech. The whole thing came off as an undergraduate college project.

    Is your brain in high gear? Discover how to "turn on" your brain to achieve high-speed problem solving, right brain logic/left brain creativity, speed reading and learning, and improved memory with this guide from best selling author Tony Buzan.

    Lissa says: "Old audio, minimal help"
    "Save your money"
    Overall

    A great read for anyone needing obvious tips and hints, without all of that annoying in depth discussion. This book skims the surface of a number of no-brainer subjects, and is as in-depth as a USA Today article.
