    Tribes are groups of people aligned around an idea, connected to a leader and to each other. Tribes make our world work, and always have. The new opportunity is that it's easier than ever to find, organize, and lead a tribe. The Web has enabled an explosion of all kinds of tribes - and created shortage of people to lead them. This is the growth industry of our time. Tribes will help you understand exactly what's at stake, and why YOU can and should lead a tribe of your own.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book, like all the Seth Godin I have read, heard and watched, delivers a clear and concise message to all who listen: Be a Leader - or at least give it your best shot, because we are in desperate need of true leaders.


    What other book might you compare Tribes to and why?

    Godin's "Here Comes Everybody" in which he clearly explains the sea change in society that not only allows, but supports grass roots efforts to a degree never before possible.


    What does Seth Godin bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I felt he was not so much reading, but speaking directly to me. It was personal.

    One recent December, at age 53, John Kralik found his life at a terrible, frightening low: his law firm was failing; he was struggling through a second divorce; he was living in a tiny apartment where he froze in the winter and baked in the summer. Then, during a walk in the hills on New Year’s Day, John was struck by the belief that his life might become at least tolerable if, instead of focusing on what he didn’t have, he could find some way to be grateful for what he had.

    Mma "Precious" Ramotswe sets up a detective agency in Botswana on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, making her the only female detective in the country. At first, cases are hard to come by. But eventually, troubled people come to Precious with a variety of concerns. Potentially philandering husbands, seemingly schizophrenic doctors, and a missing boy who may have been killed by witch doctors all compel Precious to roam about in her tiny van, searching for clues.

    If you could sum up The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting insight into Africa


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mma Rotzwei represents a strong woman while the character illustrates an entire culture.

    Good, measured narration with appropriate humor and tension.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The brief insights into other characters were strong and well defined and the glimpses into their lives were, at times, moving as they illustrated the complexities of relationships in the culture.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is one of the most engaging, surprising and satisfying reads I have encountered in some time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Art of Racing in the Rain?

    The entire book is memorable - from the unusual point of view through which it is written, to the masterful insights, very fine character development, moments of true comedy and extreme pathos - all elegantly interwoven around and through the lessons of racing which are so perfectly relevant to walking through life (and I never even watched a race before!) This audio book is a most unexpected find. Don't even hesitate to read it.


    What does Christopher Evan Welch bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    While the book is very well written, I am not sure I would have embraced it as fully if I had read it. In fact, I am not sure I would have read it at all. Welch simply 'is' Enzo as he brings the entire personality of the narrator to life in an astonishingly genuine way - dead on target, never overdone and never leaving you wanting. He beautifully breathes life into the characters with perfectly expressed humor, insight, empathy and sympathy.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an audio read I plan to give to many friends and relations.

    This ambitious, electrifying work traces the harrowing journey of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, a beautifully illuminated Hebrew manuscript created in 15th-century Spain.

    When it falls to Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, to conserve this priceless work, the series of tiny artifacts she discovers in its ancient binding - an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair - only begin to unlock its deep mysteries.

    Yvette says: "Amazing, fabulous, wonderful!!!"
    "Excellent and Riveting"
    Overall

    This is one of those stories you don't want to end. While it left me hungry for more historical info or, rather, clarification of it what is historical or fictional, I enjoyed every well-drawn and excellently narrated minute.
