i had to talk myself into this one. i was afraid of a dull book of all chess annotation and not much on the human side. i was so wrong. this book actually helps make you a better player while at the same time providing great entertainment. perhaps the best chess book i have read. well written and all the antidotes make for great reading. a terrific book.
No story at all, just compilations of other people thoughts about great discoveries.
Again there was no story and I LOVE science and still couldn't understand allot of the reports. I needed a dictionary to listen to this and this is the first book I've ever EVER said that about after reading over a thousand books I would guess.
This book turned me off so badly I want nothing to do with ANYTHING from this book again.
I would cut out the first 200 pages and then leave out the last 80 pages as well!!
I didn't like this book at all.. as you needed a degree in language and 10 other sciences to understand this text and some of the chapters were embarrassing they were so poor.
I got almost nothing from this giant grab bag of all kinds of things thrown together and couldn't follow most of it. Worst book...no ...second worst book I ever bought.
Talk about people and not scores and shots.
Learn how to pronounce words correctly.
Yes...to be more careful what books I buy.
In all my years of buying books, I have never EVER heard a narrator pronounce so many words incorrectly in just one book. Perhaps 15 words are wrong in this book that he uses, and all of them have to deal with golf. CLEARLY this man never had the tiniest thing to do with the game of golf, nor does anyone around him in the production of this book and it shows.
Not only are so many words mis-pronounced, but the tempo and rhythm of the book is very poor as he rushed through it, with no personality and makes it an un-enjoyable purchase for me. It's full of what scores they shot, and how they hit the shots that NO ONE cares about and even the background of so many of the fellow players that no one ever heard of or cares about just to fill up space and have enough words to print this book. I wish I hadn't gotten this one. It's not terrible, except for the narration, but it's not very good in any sense.
One of the best books I've ever gotten at Audible. It brings tears of joy to my eyes as I see some people in this world that actually act and do, and spend money to help other animals like ourselves.
The man that owns this reserve is so kind and generous, and spends his life saving animals rather than killing them all.
A beautiful story of the connection that can be made with higher animals if people would try or take the time to watch and listen.
It just does my heart and spirit good to see people like this still exist in a world that does everything it can to stamp out the large mammals.
Just a wonderful fantastic book filled with love, insight and drama. Beautiful listen.
Everything about this book is wonderful except the man Steve Jobs himself. I'm not sure I've ever known a more selfish despicable man in my lifetime and grew to dislike him more and more with each chapter.
My favorite man was Woz of course. A really good human being it seems.
Great presentation and great writing to put this book together for a man that deserves much less in my mind.
Who wouldn't have extreme reactions to a man that doesn't bath, and washed his feet in the toilet or shouts obscenities at employee's in front of rooms of people to take all pride away. Who wouldn't have a reaction to lying about so much to so many and even trying to pretend this isn't his child as he branded the mother as trash and a whore and sued her.
Do human beings get lower than this, and all the time pretending it has nothing to do with money as he hoards in all the cash to himself and helps almost no one. Dying with billions in the bank says all you need to know about what a jerk and crummy human being this was and everyone let him get away with his bizarre act because he knew how to make money, and they all hung on to get their piece of the wealth.
A marketing genius and fantastic design engineer and thief by trade still makes this man a rotten human being in my book.
No...not at all.
This is a book on anger that tells us to give the anger to God, and let Jesus take care of things. If we could do that, we'd not have to read the books on self help.More techniques are to tell the person up front whats on your mind, and if they don't respond, take them to the church and expose them and all kinds of things like this that are not relevant in most situations for today. I HAVE NO PROBLEM with people that go to church....those people are not the issue!!!! Almost nothing was of any value here for me, and in fact made things even worse as I became angry I ever bought this foolish book, that would be nice in another world, but not this one we live in.I felt no better after reading this at all.
Perhaps not unless it got great reviews. The best thing in almost all of these books is the tile and they never deliver unless yhour perhaps willing to change every single thing in your life.
NO not at all. It was a miss mash of things. Yes we know that certain foods help to produce certain chemicals but eating that food doesn't always mean the depression or whatever goes away like the book implies so often. My car runs on gasoline but filling th etgruckl up with it doesn't fix all things that go wrong.
Narrator sounds so mechanical and like a robot as so many of them do. I wonder why you people do it like that? No likes that mono-tone sound.
Yes, I picked up some facts and figures I didn't know but NOTHING that will change my life and I already do everything I can to keep learning so the book didn't help in that regard either.
Always false promises to get you to buy it and very little substance.
Just like most all these self help books...Here's the whole book okay...
Eat right...get plenty of rest and relax. They all say the same thing and if it worked so well no one would need to read these books but the real truth is those things only help a bit and DO NOT FIX THINGS LIKE THEY IMPLY.
here's the book, be yourself, and make friends. not one thing even close to a revelation of any type, and nothing we all dont know or have heard on talk shows a hundred times. this book is a total waste of time and money.
this is simply a terrible book. here it is in a nutshell. pay attention when your trying to remember something, and carry a notebook to write things down, thats it. no science of how anything works, no research. i could write this book by simply reading articles off the internet. i wish i could forget this worthless dribble.
this book is a fine way to pass some time. it is both entertaining and informative. the author creates every opportunity to point out how smart he is and how others are not, but it works because ther are other things to balance it all out. steve jobs is the cheating no class man we thought he was. i was surprised to find that "WOZ" is a man with a great heart and a teriffic human being. not what i had guessed prior to the read. good book, left me feeling upbeat and wishing more people were like him.
