I sell advertising. My job is to persuade others. I love learning how my mind works so that I can grasp what really motivates me. I also enjoy learning about people who may be very different than me.

    Some books are so good that you have to buy a hard copy to pass on. This is one of them.

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    If you're looking for a love story instead of a spiritual journey, you will probably be satisfied. Though it was well written and funny I thought this book would end with the author finding the meaning of life. It didn't, and I was left disappointed.

    I used to laugh at Goldie Hawn but I'm not laughing now. Who knew she was such an intellectual? I've read more books on mindfulness and neuroscience than I can count, very few of them are as good as this one. Thanks Goldie!

    Story

    I'm used to the marketing ploy of using a British or Aussie accent to make the listener believe the author has a high intellect. It would take a lot more than that for this narrator to pull that off. The book should be a short pamphlet. Instead the author took flimsy information with little substance and stretched it into a book that I couldn't bear to finish. Don't waste your credit on this one!

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    Upon leaving the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin was asked what sort of government the delegates had created. His reply to the crowd: "A republic, if you can keep it." Now America's most respected governor explains just how close we've come to losing the republic, and how we can restore it to greatness

    This is an excellent recitation of the governor's view and he backs it up with facts. He is a common sense individual and it comes through in his book. Fortunately, he ends the book on a positive note. Caution: if your views lean to the left this book could make you think about some uncomfortable facts about your favorite politicians. Otherwise, it's a great listen that will help you see a way out of our current economic abyss.

    From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls "mindsight," our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can "rewire" crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.

    First of all it is an excellent book, but the author's voice is so soothing that his narration is icing on the cake. If you are a therapist you should read this book and if you are not a therapist it is even more important that you read this book. How could any of us escape childhood and being a teenager without cuts, scrapes, and bruises? Get ready because this book can put you on the road to freeing yourself of the pain, and it is never too late to begin.

  • The YES Factor: Get What You Want. Say What You Mean. The Secrets of Persuasive Communication

    Yes: a small word, but the key to opening doors both professional and personal. The power of The Yes Factor gets you the job, the promotion, or the second date. But getting a "yes" can be tricky. Tonya Reiman explains how communication works-what the words you speak actually say about you, and how the perfect pitch can help you achieve your goals, convince your boss or client you should get the account, give a killer presentation, or win control of the remote (without ticking off your spouse!).

    J S says: "Misleading title"
    "Glad I said Yes!"
    Overall

    My husband and son are big O'Reilly Factor fans so I had already seen Tanya in action. Her book is the perfect vehicle for her to go beyond the quick explanations that she gives on the show. With many of the audible books that are really good, I choose to buy the text for reference. I knew I'd be ordering this one right away. No buyers remorse here.

    This book was hard to finish, so I didn't. Nice to listen to maybe if your a fan of her books. Not helpful to me, since I'm not interested in writing or reading this kind of story.
