    Over the course of the last five years, Tim Tebow established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of college football and a top prospect in the NFL. During that time he amassed an unparalleled resume - winning two BCS national championships; becoming the first sophomore in NCAA history to win the Heisman trophy; and in the face of massive public scrutiny, being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the Denver Broncos.

    Overall

    I enjoyed listening to this book. Tim is obviously a special guy and he has a great story, however this book had way too much "play by play" descriptions of foorball games. I was interested in Tim's story because of his religious convictions and wanted to hear his entire story. As I said, I enjoyed the listen but had hoped for more personal stuff and less "I moved to the right and hit the wide receiver at the 20".

    Dr. Ben Carson's Gifted Hands is the inspiring autobiography of an inner-city kid with poor grades and little motivation who grew up to become one of the world's most renowned and important surgeons.

    Philana says: "A Great Book by a humble man"
    "Great story"
    Overall

    Short listen but very enjoyable. Ben Carson is a class act. I enjoyed hearing the story narrated by him.

  • The Millionaire Real Estate Agent

    Anyone who wants to turn their real-estate practice into a highly successful business must understand the fundamental models that drive the best real-estate agents in the industry. In The Millionaire Real Estate Agent, these models are revealed and explained. This book from Keller Williams represents the culmination of decades of real-estate experience, research, and consulting, with case studies from some of the top millionaire agents in the U.S.

    Overall

    In the interest of full disclosure, I am a real estate broker and I am very successful. I am not a Keller Williams agent and never have been. With that little tidbit out of the way, let me say that I think this book is great to give experienced and succesful real estate agents a skeleton of what a real estate business should look like. The only problem that I see is that this book will not tell you HOW to generate the business to become a "millionaire real estate agent". It merely tells you how to leverage your highly successful real estate practice into the next level, creating a team and making your personal real estate business function like a real business. While I think that this book is helpful and very truthful, I can't help but think that most agents that pick this book up are newer and want to know HOW to get business instead of advice on hiring multiple buyer agents and becoming a CEO of your own personal real estate business. The book talks quite a bit about creating a real estate business that nets a million dollars. Great. Sign me up. The book merely tells you that you need to sell 300+ homes a year. Gee, I could have done that math. This book does very little in the way of talking about how the mega agents that are mentioned and quoted in the book market themselves or their services. The bottom line is this; if you are a successful real estate agent and want to take your business to the next level read or listen to this book 5 times and follow its advice. If you are new and want to start creating business, skip this book until you are able to generate enough business to keep yourself busy. This book won't tell you how to be successful finding and marketing to clients, only how to organize yourself when you are ready to advance beyond being a solo practioner real estate agent to a "team leader".
