    Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory's Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to...somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion's song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis, before they finally return home.

    Jason says: "An incredible children's series"
    "My favorite of the series"
    Overall

    The idea of visiting world by jumping into ponds, climbing between connected buildings through the rafters, the mad uncle and evil queen have stayed in my dreams since childhood and provoked many hours of thought.

    A great book for young adult or old. Timeless and one of my all-time favorites.

But soon Edmund, then Peter and Susan step through the wardrobe themselves. In Narnia they find a country buried under the evil enchantment of the White Witch.

    Caitlin says: "Great audiobook!"
    "if you liked the movie..."
    Overall

    ...you'll love this book because it explains so much more about who these characters are and the world they have entered. It is important to have a solid grasp on this series in order to continue. That said, this is not my favorite book in the series so if you like this or even if you don't, it only gets better and better.

    Learn with rhythm, learn with tunes, Spanish, English words you'll use! Bilingual vocabulary builder for Spanish or English. Five hundred words and expressions, plus conversation. Original music score energizes the listener. Engages both left and right brain for optimal learning.

    Willis says: "Spanish Word Booster"
    "Excellent - great beat"
    Overall

    Definitely makes Spanish vocabulary more accessible as I quickly found myself chanting with the tape as I do chores. The beat makes it easier to stay with the whole process.

    The Dawn Treader is the first ship Narnia has seen in centuries. King Caspian has built it for his first voyage to find the seven lords, good men whom his evil uncle Miraz banished when he usurped the throne. The journey takes Edmund, Lucy, their cousin Eustace, and Caspian to the Eastern Islands, beyond the Silver Sea, toward Aslan's country at the End of the World.

    Sarah says: "Favorite Narnia book"
    "Another strong contender"
    Overall

    Imagine jumping from a room into a boat in a painting and joining the voyage of the Dawn Treader to the ends of the world. The adventures, the perils and the life lessons learned as well as the tests of friendship are superb. C.S. Lewis at his storytelling best!

    Our world is being transformed by the Internet and the near limitless choice that it provides to consumers; tomorrow's markets belong to those who can take advantage of this. The Long Tail is really about the economics of abundance, an entirely new model for business that is just starting to show its power as unlimited selection reveals new truths about what consumers want and how they want to get it.

    Jim says: "Good Book, Flawed by Repition"
    "Food for thought"
    Overall

    Being in the book industry, we found this thesis thought provoking. It was a challenging but much needed wake up call. Well illustrated with current business innovations and trends, it helped me to appreciate how quickly the world is changing and gave us some ideas on positioning ourselves for the future.

    There is quite a following to this book and several websites are devoted to its discussion. Recommended for any business owner, across all industries! A worthy herald of sea-change.
