    What did you like best about The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business? What did you like least?

    Liked Best: This book provides a good overview of many of the top ideas the author attained from the many books he previously read. If you have read a good portion of the books on his suggested reading list, then you will recognize where these ideas came from.

    Liked Least: His hour long rant against MBA programs is both irritating and uninformed. For those who understand the merits of a top-tier MBA, it is easy to pick apart his argument.


    Was The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business worth the listening time?

    It was worth listening to only because it was a good refresher on the concepts I have read in many other books. I would say that this is a good starter book for someone just entering the business field.


    Any additional comments?

    There is nothing incredibly insightful about this book. If you are somewhat familiar with business concepts and are well read in the management and leadership domains, then skip this book. It's not bad, but I would go with many of the books that he suggests on his "personal MBA" website over this book.

  • Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Near-Death Experience and Journey into the Afterlife

    Story

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    What did you love best about Proof of Heaven?

    The author's method of describing his own agnosticism before his experience, his personal beliefs as a neurosurgeon, and his transformation after were incredible.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The author describes how he believes that there was only one possible explanation for his experience is very compelling. As a fairly scientific minded person, I can say that this book was the most convincing story I have ever read on spiritualism.


    Any additional comments?

    Please read this book if you are someone who has been finding yourself believing more and more the scientific gospel against God. This book helped instill some spiritualism that I was losing.
