    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.

    Overall

    Seth Godin really hit this one out of the park. I thought he did a great job narrating the text - and the content was new and useful. It was easy, fun, and interesting to listen to.

    How much better would your life be if you had an army of Nobel Laureates, MacArthur ‘geniuses’ and National Medal of Science winners whispering tips in your ear about your body language, or how to resist that impulse purchase you’ll regret tomorrow, or when to sell your car - or even helping you trick your spouse into doing the dishes?

    Garth Sounds Like a Really Nice Guy But...I just couldn't get into this book.

    To me, it was just a little too cutesy (is that a word?) - Garth's chuckles at his own humorous observations just kind of drove me crazy - I couldn't get through this audiobook.

    However, it's very well researched and if you can get around the pet peeve I experienced, you'll like it.

    Admit it. You want to BE William Shatner. This collection of rules, illustrated with stories from Bill’s illustrious life and career, will show you how Bill became WILLIAM SHATNER, larger than life and bigger than any role he ever played. Shatner Rules is your guide to becoming William Shatner. Or, more accurately, beautifully Shatneresque.

    Even better than his last book - best part is Shatner's narration. I devoured listening to this book - couldn't stop. Took the long way home just so I could listen longer. Amazing awesome book - Shatner is the man.

    I'd never heard of Jim Kukral, and actually purchased his book in a rush because I wanted something to listen to just before I needed to jet out the door. But wow - this thing knocked my socks off. I consider myself somebody who knows a lot about the web - but this is a totally new perspective. The narrator did an EXCELLENT job here too. Really well done!!!!!!

    In addition to presenting Sean Stephenson's unbelievable life story, Get Off Your "But," offers anyone who needs to conquer fears and insecurities a hands-on guide for overcoming the forces of negativity and self-sabotage. Sean - a successful psychotherapist - shows what it takes to overcome the big bumps in the road, eliminate excuses, end insecurities, and ultimately stand up for happiness and success in life.

    Michael says: "Excellent text on removing excuses in life"
    "Pretty Good"
    Overall

    This book is pretty good and, in my opinion, is made great by Sean Stephenson's narration. It's the kind of audio book that just wouldn't be the same if somebody else was narrating it. Sean does a great great great job.

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better Than Made to Stick"
    "Terrific!"
    Overall

    I listened to this after listening to "Made to Stick." I liked "Switch" as much or more...these brothers do a great job of presenting practical interesting ideas in an easy to absorb way.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better The Second Time"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    This was a surprisingly great book...I really enjoyed it and got a lot of new ideas from it. Very practical stuff. Liked it so well I listened to Drive by the same authors immediately after.

    I try to have respect for all books - and maybe it was just me - but I couldn't make it all the way through this one. I think some of it had to do with the narration - but it just stalled out for me. Seemed to be a lot of repetition...

  • Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else

    One of the most popular Fortune articles in many years was a cover story called "What It Takes to Be Great." Geoff Colvin offered new evidence that top performers in any field - from Tiger Woods and Winston Churchill to Warren Buffett and Jack Welch - are not determined by their inborn talents. Greatness doesn't come from DNA but from practice and perseverance honed over decades.

    I'm really glad I picked this book to listen too. It has lots of information that was new - the author did an excellent job of incorporating stories to make his points. It was a pleasure to listen to this book.

    With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who's ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs who want to get out, and artists who don't want to starve anymore will all find valuable inspiration and guidance in these pages. It's time to rework work.

    This book surprised me - was more interesting than I thought it would be. Liked what they had to say about the pitfalls of planning too much. Narration was excellent.

    In this, his first audiobook, Tony Hsieh - the widely admired CEO of Zappos, the online shoe retailer -explains how he created a unique culture and commitment to service that aims to improve the lives of its employees, customers, vendors, and backers. Using anecdotes and stories from his own life experiences, and from other companies, Hsieh provides concrete ways that companies can achieve unprecedented success.

    Ben says: "Do one thing exceptionally"
    "Really excellent"
    Overall

    I knew a little about Zappos and a little about Tony Hsieh before listening to this one - but I know a lot more after...and found all the information here really interesting. It is no surprise to me that Tony Hsieh has met with so much success - he's a really dynamic smart guy and it was a pleasure to hear him narrate this excellent book he's written.
