What a mess!
John William Meriwether was my favorite character because his portrayl within the book as the most sensitive and rife with Greek tragedy. (For those options enthusiasts reading this, the pun was absolutely intended!)
The reading was crisp on the ear and very easy to listen to.
Um, it's about bankers. I cheered when they went down in flames!
Superb story telling. If you are at all interested in the saga of Long-Term Capital Management, download this and give it a listen. I loved it!
This book captured me from the start and carried my attention through its end. Very well done.
The story is not particularly compelling, the characters one dimensional and the dialog is at times trying. Ralph Lister does a superb job of reading what would otherwise be a rather uninspired experience. He manages to bring life to a few of the characters, making the read more enjoyable.
Perfect for a television series on the SyFy channel. I can't imagine a known celebrity signing on, though.
Basic space opera.
A masterful continuation of the Stormlight Archive that is exceptionally well read. Characters are well developed, the universe rich and the story will hold your attention and leave wanting more.
The answer is yes, but only if to someone who is interested in marketing or learning to persuade others.
I have read or listened to so many business and marketing books that after awhile the concepts get repeated and repacked enough that it is hard to separate what came from where. I find myself thinking about Cialdini's books and various copy writing books by Dan Kenney and others when I listen to this one.
Scene? The story about the ice bath and the kidney thieves stands out most in my mind at this point.
Discover the Magic of making something compellingly memorable.
This was certainly a worthwhile listen and helps the reader (listener) evaluate how they might better communicate a message so that it stays with and persuades their audience.
