    Where does How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, 3rd Edition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have bought and listened about 20 audiobooks so far and without hasitate I can assure this is the best of all.
    I consider myself as a complete music ignorant, though I like it. My previous audibooks where none of them about music nor art appreciation. I'm an engineer and without any prior music education.
    Though this audibook gave the basis to start understanding great music. Gave me the basis to open my own road in music appreciation.
    A phat and big round TEN for Robert Greenberg.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That is exactly what this audibook is: a story!
    Robert Greenberg nailed it from the 1st chapter all along the last one. He explained with great humor, knowledge and humble, the human history and where every piece of music and composer fits. He explained the different ages with great detailed but never pretentious. This is the perfect formula for any person without any prior music knowledge to be involved in this wonderful world.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Robert's sense of humor, intelligent and even sarcastic comments


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

    The moment I started understanding some Mozart's movements.
    The moment I started to differentiate the inner structure of menuettos, sonatas, passacaglias, fuges, rondos, etc.. I started to realize that this was the perfect audiobook for a guy like me.
    The moment my ipod started to be filled with classical, baroque, romantic music, operas and not just to hear them, but to own them.
    This audiobook really moved me because I am not a passive listener any more, now I understand, now they are not Beethoven's, Mozart's, Debussy's any more, now I'm active, now they are mine.


    Any additional comments?

    I really want to thank Robert Greenberg for this wonderful work. I do not know him personally but I believe he changed me in a deep and aesthetical manner.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Spy the Lie to be better than the print version?

    I havent read the book but the audio edition is excellent


    What other book might you compare Spy the Lie to and why?

    In some how you can compare it with Daniel Coleman's Social Intelligence in some if his chapters where you can abstract usual behaviors in social interaction.
    Or even with Paul Ekman, even though the authors recite Ekman


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    Fred's perfomance just fit with this book, it engaged me!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    All in one setting and several times


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent information and tips that everybody should know and have present in social interactions

    This new audio set is a very special abridgement of two of Stephen R. Covey's best-selling business books, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit, read by Dr. Covey himself. We've condensed the content of two entire books into just six hours of audio, but you'll still enjoy Dr. Covey's lessons on powerful personal change and how to incorporate his ideas into your life to fulfill your ultimate potential.

    Story
    (499)

    Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women. This is not fiction. These men really exist. They live together in houses known as Projects. And Neil Strauss, the best-selling author, spent two years living among them, using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity. The result is one of the most explosive and controversial books of the year.

    Stephen says: "A Must Read For All Men"
    "Covey, Coleman, NPL et al, all in one novel book"

    Would you listen to The Game again? Why?

    I have read/listen a couple of times this exciting book and I would do it again.
    There is too much information and you can cross-reference with other Authors and books that everytime you listen to it again, you can find and extract something new.


    What other book might you compare The Game to and why?

    Sthephen Covey, Daniel Coleman, Leil Lowndes, Paul Eckman, .... NPL, Good Conversation, Micro-expressions, psychology, etc, .. can be listen / read in this novel but with a praxis, real-life approach.


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

    no, its the first one


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    sure, this book can captive your mind and even impulse your will
