    Story

    I have read so many books on self development and training, to name a few (quantum learning, Buzan's Genius Formula and other books, Paul Schelee's genius Code & Photo Reading, Einstein Factor for Win Wenger) and so many others.
    In my point of view , this one of the very exceptional. Josh is abridging so many native ideas and theories, and creating his own model that fits professionals to achieve their immediate targets, with their busy schedules. Josh's unique approach is suitable for the fast growing in the market of knowledge, which is also changing rapidly.

    Some of the example skills which have been described in details by the author will be skipped by me. the reason is that "i am not interested" but these skills can be substituted with your own lovable skills, after reading the original skill of course. For example, Yoga, i do not like it and cant love it, but i heard the whole method and will apply it on my favorite sport, Boxing.

    Networking is my profession, and Ruby programming can become my lovable, so i will learn Ruby without substituting it with other skill, after Ruby i will go for DOT NET programming language with the same method for Ruby, and so on.

    But there is a problem, the book says that you do not need to spend 10000 hours to learn a skill, I agree, but if you want to become a surgeon or read and understand Goethe's work, then you will definitely spend much more than 20 hours.

    Josh's work is great, i am in love with his book and probably buy other books for him. Specially the books he narrates himself, because he is not only reading good but also he is delivering his message with maximum potential, obviously because he believes in what he wrote himself.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold ""human error"" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Story

    Its the first time for me to read a novel which is based on science without loosing interest or feeling tired. This book is an unmatched science fiction. Its based on real numbers and scientific facts & data. the author has spent hours on doing math and analysis.
    While i was reading the book i started browsing for more information on Mars, it seemed to me like "Ok let me go to Mars next vacation"
    There are many heart ponders, a few times you feel that Watney (main charachter) is about to die.
    In short this book is the one of the best i read.

    Neal Schaffer helped revolutionize the way professionals utilize LinkedIn with his award-winning book Windmill Networking: Understanding, Leveraging & Maximizing LinkedIn. He now does the same to enlighten companies how to develop business on LinkedIn with Maximizing LinkedIn for Sales and Social Media Marketing. Thought Linkedin was just for job seekers? Think again.

    Neal Schaffer is awesome. His book is easy to follow. Advises given are real time and practical. You can start a LinkedIn account directly from day one you start reading the book and follow the instructions to find at the end that you have accomplished so much. I also bought Neal's other book Maximize Your Social, because i was confident that there he has alot more to say. I read so many social media books at audible, but this was exceptionally good.
    so why dint i give 5 star for performance? because of the poor narrating. I usually listen to audio books at 1.25x speed, but with this book i couldn't. I couldn't distinguish between the paragraphs or when the narrator was reading the titles, all were being at the same level. Hope you all have great time reading and listening the book.

    This is a quick guide to enter the world of internet marketing. it has concluded all what a starter should know to take his business to a new level. some of the information is already known but the author was able to organize it, so you won't waist your time collecting it from different places. I will be waiting to the next volumes.

    The Brain That Changes Everything is the ultimate guide to accelerating your brain. We have barely scratched the surface of our limitless brains. We can improve our memory, focus, concentration and alertness beyond what we ever imagined before. To many scientists and laymen alike it is becoming ever apparent that we may be evolving to the point where we can consciously unlock the full potential of our brains. Is it possible that you too could turn your brain into a powerhouse?

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Good time spent listening to the book as far as narrating and content, but being a fan of Tony Buzan, Paul Scheele and a few other writers on the subject, i find it easy to put a comparison and say confidently that the book lacks motivation to continue reading. Instead it focuses on direct information.Simply put, Human brain have much greater potential than described in the book, and as Buzan says : once you know your true potential, your whole attitude changes.But the good thing is that it is an abridged version of so many other books written on the subject previously.Great book but was not for me


    Do you think The Brain That Changes Everything needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, it has all the necessary information and explained the needed points. If i need any more information i would prefer to see other books.
