    Where does The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I bought this for my daughter, but I decided to listen to it and I was suddenly flooded with business ideas!! I'm 53 years old and I am now on the cusp of some great ideas!! Excellent "read"


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business?

    For me, it was the author's prologue on how he got to this point in his own journey. It was inspiring.


    What about Josh Kaufman’s performance did you like?

    Sounded a bit robotic, but nonetheless, a good narrator.


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

    It's 13 hours, so I could not. Plus it's something you need to listen to and then digest.


    Any additional comments?

    This information is rich; it's valuable. The most important component to any MBA is the student. How hungry are they? You can have all the Harvard and Yale MBAs you want, but unless the individual is proactive,....

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    What did you love best about No Easy Day?

    I love his no nonsense approach to this life he has chosen. He loves it and it's clear he loves it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That less than perfection in this line of work is unacceptable to the individual, even if it's forgivable with the team as a whole.


    What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He made me realize that these guys have to face their fears and repeat the actions over and over until they no longer fear them. In other words, keep doing it until you love it. Then do it some more.

    Also, he coined a term that he was more comfortable with discomfort than the other way around and I could relate to that. My line of work is NOTHING compared to what these brave souls do, but I could understand nonetheless.


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

    My schedule only permits me upwards of 1 hour at a time, but I must say, I want to find any reason to turn my iPhone on to listen to this guy. He gives out NO SECRETS. So anyone who claims he is unpatriotic, obviously hasn't read the book. This book is really about the type of person that becomes a Navy Seal. These guys are amazing individuals!!
