This was a good book with a bonus interview of the author at the end. However, in the author's words, this is a "fairy tale for adults". There are a few sections that are not appropriate for children and it should not be classified as a children's book. Other than an overly descriptive sex scene, it was a good listen.
Guy Kawasaki is a great writer who includes humour and personal experience to make his point. If you've ever wondered why you like some products, but really love others, this book is for you. It gives insight into how you too could "enchant" people to your way of thinking or in relation to your product or business. Good listen.
I really like Patrick Lencioni's way of getting his point across...through a story. You definitely will remember his point. The book is effective at hitting home the need for transparency and authenticity in business dealings. It will spark internal discussion as I'm not sure how all points will really work in the real world, but I definitely recommend it.
This book was interesting, but I believe it is based in a world that I don't know because I've never listened to a John Scalzi book before.
The story was creative in it's approach and it was neat to really get into the head of the "soldier" it was written about.
Quite a few "F" words in one chapter about sex which I didn't appreciate.
There's something good about listening to an audio book where you see the voices you hear as they're familiar figures from the silver screen. Full of Star Wars action and adventure. The ending was a bit unsatisfying, but I supposed that's what you get when you listen to a trilogy. A must for Star Wars fans as it answers the question, "what happens after the movie is over".
As a long time mac enthusiast this book was enlightening and really gave some insight into Steve Jobs and the decisions made throughout the years. I had several..."oh, that's why they did that" moments. I like how the author covered certain topics as a whole rather than just a chronological biography. Great book.
This is a great novel and a great narrator. If you've seen the tv movie, "Anne of Green Gables" you'll recongize the voice of Anne. However, the quality of the recording is very poor. You do get used to it, but it is distracting.
Engaging. Relevant. Change.
Very interesting book. It really makes you think about how we approach education in our nation as well as the pursuit of the things that really energize us and what we're passionate about. The reader is the author and it is very well read. I recomment it.
You should follow your passions and encourage others to do the same.
An excellent case is made to simplify the programs and ministries of our churches to focus on moving people through a process of discipleship. Having worked in the church for over 10 years, the principles and ideas raised in this book rang true on many levels. Worth consideration.
Very well read and the narrator is great.
You need time to digest each chapter and consider how the principles could be implemented.
I found this book to be fascinating and gave me a new appreciation for the values and choices that are behind the business. It is great to see how the company that seemed to epitomize "excess" during the recession reinvent itself and come out on top. A few parts get a little too "inside baseball" but overall, a great listen.
This book gives lots of great diet and health information that you can apply to your life. The reader is great. The only thing is, it spends quite a bit of time talking about the dangers of the "low carb" diet craze...and I think/hope we're kinda past that craze today. However, I recommend it. And there's other products in this "series" like the "Abs Diet Personal Trainer".
