  • If You Want to Write: A Book about Art, Independence, and Spirit

    In her 93 remarkable years, veteran freelance writer, memoirist, and writing teacher Brenda Ueland published some six million words. She once said there were two simple rules that she followed absolutely: to tell the truth, and to not do anything she didn't want to do. Such integrity both distinguishes and defines If You Want to Write, her best-selling classic that first appeared in the late 1930s and has inspired thousands to find their own creative center.

    What made the experience of listening to If You Want to Write the most enjoyable?

    This voice put to these beautiful, classical, sensitive words - this audio program, in my humble opinion, is simple, short and gorgeous!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of If You Want to Write?

    Her mentioning that years prior to writing that manifesto, she would have exhaustively looked for scientific proof to back up her words, but then she exclaimed that 'I say it because it is true to me, that it is true and you should have it!' - my favorite part!


    Which character – as performed by Pat Carroll – was your favorite?

    Pat Carroll voice was perfect for this book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Do you!


    Any additional comments?

    my review for the print version - There are no words...but i'll try. Brenda Ueland has written this manifesto for everyone who has anything in them to share to spur them on. I love the wording, I love the quotes from her favorite people, I love her artists sensibility and that she gets the way a writer's mind works. She was and is (because being that she was a writing teacher, this book screams of her living spirit) THE voice for a writer lost in their own mind, trying to latch on to guidance and do their thing.

    I simply love her and this book is why I do.

    The New York Times best-selling author heralds the future of business in Free. In his revolutionary best seller, The Long Tail, Chris Anderson demonstrated how the online marketplace creates niche markets, allowing products and consumers to connect in a way that has never been possible before. Now, in Free, he makes the compelling case that, in many instances, businesses can profit more from giving things away than they can by charging for them.

    this was my first Chris Anderson book


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed often

  • Anything You Want: 40 Lessons for a New Kind of Entrepreneur

    When anyone can start a business (when everyone is running their career like a business), it begs a question. This is your one chance at life, you can have anything you want, what is worth doing? Most people don't know why they're doing what they're doing. They imitate others, go with the flow, and follow paths without making their own. They spend decades in pursuit of something that someone convinced them they should want, without realizing that it won't make them happy. Anything You Want is a manifesto about living life, appreciating enough, and doing what matters.

    Richard says: "Short and poignant"
    "Great for who may desire a REAL online business"

    I would recommend this to anyone looking to use the internet to fulfill a desire burning in them to innovate and do things their way and on their own terms.

    Great work, Derek Sivers-it was encouraging and real...I, for one, appreciate the stories that are straight from the 'horse's mouth'!

    It has been scientifically proven that just a few minutes a day of quiet stress-reducing relaxation has positive effects that last the entire day. This audio is the perfect way to relax more deeply, and to relieve daily or chronic anxiety. It is filled with easy and effective methods that thousands of people have used to ease the demanding pace of their careers and their lives.

    "sound quality was really bad"
    Overall

    sound quality was really bad, distracting me from relaxing. I'm sure that was not the intention, as Marc Allen is known for quality. I'm sure if he knew about the quality of this track he would do something about it.
