    Whether interviewing, selling, networking, or leading a team, brainstorming with the boss or delivering a presentation, success in business depends on connecting with other people. Nicholas Boothman, the best-selling author who consults with Fortune 500 companies, now brings his system of forging instant relationships to the world of business. Beginning with the simplest of tools (face, body, attitude, and voice) he shows how to make a dazzling first impression.

    I listened to this book at least 6 times, and learnt something new each time. This stuff should be taught in school. Try it. It works.

  • Jolie Blon's Bounce

    Return to James Lee Burke's "timeless, parallel universe" with detective Dave Robicheaux, as he investigates the murders of two women, tries to prove one man's innocence, and faces an enemy unlike any he has ever known. Gothic, dense, brutal, touching, and always compelling, Jolie Blon's Bounce is classic storytelling from a writer who has been dubbed "the Faulkner of crime fiction."

    "Love Mark Hammer's Narration Style"
    Overall

    I've read a few reviews where Hammer's narration style is criticised heavily. I couldn't disagree more - Hammer takes an already great story and adds his style to create genuine syngergy. Fabulous complex story, and narrated equally fabulously. I liked Hammer's style so much I'm struggling to enjoy those Burke books read by Patton. Narrator changes are a pain with character based novels.

    I'd rate my enjoyment of JB's Bounce up right up there with other Audible books like Memoirs of a Geisha, The Human Stain, and Tis/Angela's Ashes - all great stories enhanced by great narrators.
