    Marion Winik, one of the country's best-known personal essayists, believes in telling the truth. Her award-winning personal essays tell secrets about herself and describe the raw power of relationships, experiences, and passions, from her husband's suicide to a memorable late-night poetry reading from a swimming pool.

    Overall

    I guess I should know that recordings of writer's workshops are going to be uneven in terms of quality of content, but I took a gamble again. Ms Winik is a good presenter with good insights, but who wants to pay to hear her audience's readings and sharing? It's like listening to a support group.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Dave's the man. He inspired and taught me to get debt free and find financial peace.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Dave makes you want to be a better leader.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    This is an abridged book! I'm a big fan (BS3) and love FPU. Heck, we host it at our church every year and even hosted the EntreLeadership simulcast. Hey, I bought the audio AND hardback books. What a huge disappointment to read the book as I listen and notice entire sections, paragraphs and pages just skipped altogether. What's that about? I paid for the whole book, Dave, why couldn't you read it all?Bad form from a great man.

  • The Steve Jobs Way: iLeadership for a New Generation

    In iLeadership, Jay Elliot gives the listener the opportunity of seeing Steve Jobs as only his closest associates have ever seen him, and to learn what has made him - and the mystique of his management style - capable of creating tools so extraordinary that they have remade three industries and have transformed the way we create, consume, and communicate with each other.

    David says: "a man who actually worked with Jobs"
    "Maybe it reads better in print form?"

    Would you try another book from Jay Elliot and William L. Simon and/or Christopher Hurt?

    No, because after listening to the Steve Jobs biography, this book seems shallow and syrupy. If you have read the biography, you can see that not much of Job's approach would work for mere mortals like us. What is more, you know that most of us could not treat people like he did and sleep well at night. I am sure that there may be some transferable principles and practices which we can all learn from the genius of Steve Jobs. It would have been great if Jay Elliot had found and presented them effectively. Sadly, he didn't.

    Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D., is a world-renowned psychologist and speaker. The Highly Sensitive Person is an in-depth look at characteristics that define sensitivity. Through self-assessment tests and techniques, Aron shows listeners how to identify their own personality traits. This exceptional book can lead to remarkable results for many who suffer from constant stress and anxiety.

    Steph says: "Highly Scientific"
    "Hate to hurt anyone's feelings, but..."
    Overall

    This is just a hard book to listen to. I have highly sensitive people in my life and I want to understand them. That's why I bought the book. But the whining tone of the book is so grating I couldn't finish it.

  • Crime and Punishment (Recorded Books Edition)

    Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment is universally regarded as one of literature's finest achievements, as the great Russian novelist explores the inner workings of a troubled intellectual. Raskolnikov, a nihilistic young man in the midst of a spiritual crisis, makes the fateful decision to murder a cruel pawnbroker, justifying his actions by relying on science and reason, and creating his own morality system. Dehumanized yet sympathetic, exhausted yet hopeful, Raskolnikov represents the best and worst elements of modern intellectualism. The aftermath of his crime and Petrovich's murder investigation result in an utterly compelling, truly unforgettable cat-and-mouse game. This stunning dramatization of Dostoevsky's magnum opus brings the slums of St. Petersburg and the demons of Raskolnikov's tortured mind vividly to life.

    Greg says: "Wonderful Book"
    "Wonderful"
    Overall

    I was absorbed by this great story and the reader made it come alive. I want more Dostoevsky read by Guidal. My 13 year old listened to portions and fell under it's trance. I fell in love with Sonya.
