  • Churchill

    • ORIGINAL (6 hrs and 15 mins)
    • By The Great Courses
    • Narrated By Professor J. Rufus Fears

    Story
    (89)

    In these 12 inspiring lectures, Professor Fears presents a well-balanced portrait of Churchill that does not whitewash his flaws. Yet he also draws on the most recent historical scholarship and material from Churchill's writings and speeches to make the case that Churchill belongs with Pericles of Athens and Abraham Lincoln as one of the greatest statesmen in the history of democracy.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    i've listened to other "great courses" and really enjoyed them. prof. fears was amazingly dry...


    Would you recommend Churchill to your friends? Why or why not?

    i would not recommend this course, i'd probably direct people towards a simple biography instead.


    How could the performance have been better?

    passion about the subject you're teaching is always a plus.

  • The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

    Story
    (4735)

    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.

    What did you love best about The Power of Habit?

    The multiple illustrations across so many facets of life makes this books super understandable, even though it's rich in content.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The flow of this book is great. A thought is brought up and completed well with stories and scientific support.


    Have you listened to any of Mike Chamberlain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to him, but I know that when he reads the girl parts, it's hysterical...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I very much enjoyed listening to how little habits can influence big things, the little wins are bigger than we think.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an amazingly written and well read book. I'd highly suggest it for anyone... whether they struggle with unwanted habits or are extremely self-disciplined, they'll enjoy the practical nature of this book both individually and in a social context.
