    Why do the rich get richer even in a financial crisis? In his new book, the best-selling author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad confirms his message and challenges listeners to change their context and act in a new way. Robert Kiyosaki here takes a new and hard-hitting look at the factors that impact people from all walks of life as they struggle to cope with change and challenges that impact their financial world.

    Where does The Teeth of the Tiger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd rate it as pretty good to fair. The book needs a bit more substance to it, but entertaining to say the least. Could have had more details.


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

    Did a great job with the reading, and I listen to these audiobooks all of the time and have become quite annoyed with anyone that doesn't read them to well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

  • Sniper: American Single-Shot Warriors in Iraq and Afghanistan

    Story
    (30)

    From Afghanistan's Hindu Kush peaks and sunbaked Helmand Valley to Baghdad, Mosul and Ramadi in Iraq, American snipers have braved heart-pounding situations to hit their human targets dead-on. Few military feats stir the imagination like the image of a pair of riflemen waiting quietly in a building, a bomb crater, or a mountain pass for a Taliban or Al Qaeda fighter to walk into their crosshairs. Sniper presents real-life tales from the military's frontline snipers---their hits and their misses, the anguish of loss, and the anxiety of the first kill.

    Story
    Where does Sniper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great stories, but a slight twist from what Im used to in that it talked more about feelings and emotions. Im more interested in the actual events, tactics, and the experiences; but this book seemed to branch into the "how does that make you feel?" touchy side of being a sniper. Different.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sniper?

    The main takeaway from the book was that it attempted to pull the emotional effects their stories, again, just different


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Absolutely despised the way this book was read. I could go on and on, but the narrator needs to really improve on her performance. For example: 1. The volume changes as you speak into the microphone and then away from the microphone. It is as if the narrator was reading a book in her lap, and looked down at it to read, and then speak back and forth to the microphone. So the volume just went up and down, up and down. Horrible!!!

    2. Her voice and inflections on the story didn't match the content. For example, at the end of the sentence her voice went up when she said "...he said." But it sounds like she was about to start the sentence with those words "He said..." Confusing!

    3. Please don't ever try to attempt a New England accent; that is a poor attempt. Really, all the accents attempted were just plain horrible

    4. Just skip the attempts at a regional accent and just read it plainly next time. It's the content we are after, not making it into some kind of a theatrical play. I would have rather heard the Monty Python's old British ladies reading this book!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Content was fair to good; the main narrator ruined it though

  • Nothing Like It in the World: The Men Who Built the Transcontinental Railroad 1863-1869

    Story
    (88)

    Nothing Like It in the World is the story of the men who built the transcontinental railroad. In Ambrose's hands, this enterprise comes to life. The U.S. government pitted two companies - the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific railroads - against each other in a race for funding, encouraging speed over caution. As its peak the work force approached the size of Civil War armies, with as many as 15,000 workers on each line. The surveyors, the men who picked the route, lived off buffalo, deer, and antelope.

    A. Millard says: "Good Book, Poor Narration and Audio Quality"

    Story
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    How much the completion of this railroad was at the hands of the Chinese. They worked very hard, did the jobs nobody else did, and found respect. They earned it not only from their labor, but how they managed themselves and their camps. They ate healthy foods, were not drunks like the others, and did their work. Great examples to us all!


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

    The harsh treatment of the Chinese and how they handled themselves; who in return earned the respect of everyone else by the examples they lived.
