    Born in the USA, the son of an African father and an American mother, a boy who spent his childhood in Indonesia and Hawaii, Barack Obama is truly a citizen of the world. His campaign for the presidency is powered by a fierce optimism, an exuberant sense of purpose and determination, and, above all, a belief that change can happen.

    Story

    this book is too religious for me. I didn't even finish listing to the introduction before moving onto the next book in my list. It turned out that it is the EQ according to the shariaa. I'm not for or against this approach, I just wish it was clear from the beginning so I don't waste my time and money.

    the author uses such a tone that the reader is already religious person. He goes on explaining that the book is written according to" your religion and your profit". How do you know what's my religion?

    The truth is most of us are scared of change. When a cry for change is calling up from deep inside us, we tend to ignore it. When change is thrust upon us by outside circumstances, we try to deny it. We would rather have things stay the same. It's easier that way.

    Regardless how good the book is, really it's very hard to follow since the narrator [writer] is speaking with a New Zealand accent. I wish it indicates under every book which one is narrated with accent other than the North American.

  • No Excuses!: The Power of Self-Discipline for Success in Your Life

    Most people think success comes from good luck or enormous talent, but many successful people achieve their accomplishments in a simpler way: through self-discipline. Brian Tracy knows this firsthand. He didn’t graduate from high school, and after working for a few years as a laborer, he realized he had limited skills and a limited future. But through the power of self-discipline, he changed his life.

    Story

    BT seems to be disconnected with the reality of every day life. If you add up all the "good" advices he provides you, you will need 72 hours a day not 24. Some advices counter each other depends on the context.

    How on earth can i wake up two hours earlier every day, got to work an hour sooner, and stay an hour later,...

    Even his success stories and examples (that he gives himself credit for) do not add up or make sense.

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

    What disappointed you about Switch?

    The narrator co-authors the book with writer. This narrator did a terrible job reading the material. it feels so boring because he did not pour his heart into it, or may be it did not interest him. Robotic Reading.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrator?

    I love book narrated by one of: Bruce Reizen, Sandra Burr, Jim Bond


    What character would you cut from Switch?

    It is not about the book at all; it is the narrator that read it like a robot


    Any additional comments?

    I wish to know the name of the narrator so I do not buy books by him again.
