    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.

    Story

    This isn't your typical self-help book. The author goes into the neurology of habits as well as the psychology. What a helpful audio book! There are lots of anecdotal stories to keep a listener's interest on a long car ride, and the informational tidbits are peppered in--between the stories. This book is a positive, encouraging book, not a negative condemning one. If you have a bad habit you are having trouble breaking, I highly recommend this book. It is already helping me.

    This faithful rendering of the New King James Version presents the Bible in more than 90 hours of compelling, dramatic audio theater format.This world-class audio production immerses listeners in the dramatic reality of the Scriptures as never before with an original music score by composer Stefano Mainetti (Abba Pater), feature film quality sound effects, and compelling narration by Michael York and the work of over 500 actors.

    Story

    Great sound effects enhance the listening experience. It is easy to imagine Paul writing a letter when you hear the "scribbling" noises in the background. Job actually sounds ill. Multiple narrators read with the emotions the bible people were probably actually feeling. This one is a keeper!

    There is no story in 20th-century history more important to understand than Hitler’s rise to power and the collapse of civilization in Nazi Germany. With The Coming of the Third Reich, Richard Evans, one of the world’s most distinguished historians, has written the definitive account for our time.

    Not a good listen for a long car ride. Hard to follow via auditory only. Thinking of returning it. Might purchase digital edition.

    Since the liberal revolution of the '60s and '70s, American history books have been biased toward the negative. They overemphasize America's racism, sexism, and bigotry while downplaying the greatness of her patriots. As a result, more emphasis is placed on Harriet Tubman than on George Washington, more on the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II than on D-day or Iwo Jima. This book offers a long-overdue acknowledgment of America's true and proud history.

    Story

    Informative for the newbie to American history, but not overly simplified. Narrator changes tone when reading a quote. He almost seems to be doing an "impression" of the speaker. Great listen again and again.

    Did Columbus believe that God called him west to undiscovered lands? Does American democracy owe its inception to the handful of Pilgrims that settled at Plymouth? If, indeed, there was a specific, divine call upon this nation, is it still valid today?

    One of the best I've listened to. It gave me a new respect for the Pilgrims and the Puritans
