    Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Perks of Being a Wallflower in three words, what would they be?

    warm, lyrical, tangible


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charlie shares his life and his world in a way that is both down-to-earth and timeless. If you were young in the 90s you can certainly go back there, but that infinite feeling between friends transcends a specific time and place. I have seen myself again and again in the situations Charlie describes.


    Which character – as performed by Noah Galvin – was your favorite?

    Noah is an incredible narrator, bringing life and emotion to the words without running away with the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me smile. A lot. It made me cry. It made me want to call my friends and tell them about things I remember about the times we were infinite and the times we fought and the times we all cried, together.


    Any additional comments?

    An absolute must for any age. It will do your 15-year-old soul, with all it's torn notebook pages and snippets of song lyrics, good.

  • The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

    Story
    (4145)

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to The Power of Habit the most enjoyable?

    The stories of real people, corporations and studies were inspiring and often shocking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just listening to this book drove me to start a gym regimen, improve the habits of my Board of Directors, and change many mistakes that I was making in my approaches to living a more productive life!
