    Bestselling author, speaker, and world-traveling success coach Jen Sincero cuts through the din of the self-help genre with her own verbal meat cleaver in You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. In this refreshingly blunt how-to guide, Sincero serves up twenty-seven bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, life-changing insights, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word.

    What made the experience of listening to You are a Badass the most enjoyable?

    Has some great insights in how to live life to the fullest! I have listened to this book multiple times. Each time I find something new. Also, I think you experience the book in different ways depending on what is happening in your life. It is like looking at a mountain at different times of the day and night. Same mountain but each time the experience is different.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you consider the audio edition of 11-22-63 to be better than the print version?

    The voice performance was fantastic. Craig hit the ball out of the park!


    What did you like best about this story?

    History/Suspense


    What does Craig Wasson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His emotion and tonal changes, make the story come alive.

  • 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.

    Story
    What would have made Talent Is Overrated better?

    The author ignores countless studies that have been done on talent. The studies clearly indicate that there is a strong genetic bias towards being better at some things than others. For someone who is discussing the merits of hard work, I think he should have done a better job on his home work. Furthermore, to say talent has a minimal role, if any, in our development, simply ignores the diversity that makes us all unique. Does the author have children? Does he not see the vast differences between them? Does he not see the talents that exists within each child? The author's premise that all it takes is hard work is just another excuse for people to feel bad about themselves. For example, there is an implied if you play golf for 20 years, you can be Tiger. My bother in law has played golf for 30 years and has done so with great vigor. Although he has a great handicap, he is no Tiger. Again this is an area with lots of scientific studies, that the author has chose to ignore. Also, has the author taken into account the effects on one's personal life, when a goal is pursued at the expense of all others? Tiger and Michael Jackson are two excellent examples. Neither had an adolescence/childhood. Look how they turned out. The reality is that becoming a self-actualize, productive member of society is probably the greatest definition of success. Good luck to all.
