  • Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World

    The Dalai Lama, at his most compassionate and outspoken, here elaborates and deepens his vision for the nonreligious way. Transcending the mere "religion wars", he outlines a system of secular ethics that gives tolerant respect to religion, those that ground ethics in a belief in God and an afterlife, and those that understand good actions as leading to better states of existence in future lives. And yet, with the highest level of spiritual and intellectual authority, the Dalai Lama makes a claim for what he calls a third way.

    What did you love best about Beyond Religion?

    I've never listened to nor read anything by His Holiness the Dalai Lama but found myself really enjoying it during my drives.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The messages have a nice balance of idealism and practicality


    What about Martin Sheen’s performance did you like?

    He read it well and it took me a while to get used to him just because he is so familiar from films and what not.

  • The Thank You Economy

    The Thank You Economy is about something big, something greater than any single revolutionary platform. It isn't some abstract concept or wacky business strategy—it's real, and every one of us is doing business in it every day, whether we choose to recognize it or not. It's the way we communicate, the way we buy and sell, the way businesses and consumers interact online and offline.

    Story
    Where does The Thank You Economy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Thank You Economy is up there with books that are both interesting to listen to while still being very informative.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's really more a series of anecdotes of "how to rock social media" rather than any 'characters' playing a part.


    What about Gary Vaynerchuk’s performance did you like?

    His voice is direct and engaging. It sounds like we're sitting around the fire talking.


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

    Why social media has dramatically altered how we communicate with friends, family and our customers.

    To market your business, reach new customers, and create long-lasting loyalty, you need one indispensable element: CONTENT. Whether it’s bite-sized tweets that allow you to forge relationships on Twitter, blog posts that give your readers must-have advice, ebooks or white papers that engage (and don’t bore), videos that share the human side of your company, interactive webinars that deliver a valuable learning experience, or podcasts that can be downloaded and listened to on the fly (and more!) . . .

    Word Smart II takes up where Word Smart leaves off - with more important words you need to succeed in school and at work. And because this is an audio program, you won't have to worry about correct punctuation or embarrass yourself when you try to impress others with your growing mental lexicon.
