    Life-changing wisdom never goes out of style! These eight classic works have truly stood the test of time, selling tens of millions of copies and remaining in constant demand. Now The Secrets of Success, a one-of-a-kind anthology of achievement, reveals why they are every bit as inspiring as they were a century ago.

    A great collection of rich content. Regarding earlier comments about the narrator--I like him because he reads without trying to win an academy award for acting. Perfect for being read to sleep at night. He reminds me of the Radio Reader on PBS, or a hypnotist. A good way to get these ideas into your subconscious mind where they can do some good.

    It has been 40 years since the publication of this classic science-fiction novel that changed the way we look at the stars and ourselves. From the savannas of Africa at the dawn of mankind to the rings of Saturn as man adventures to the outer rim of our solar system, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a journey unlike any other.

    I enjoyed revisiting 2001, hearing about how it came to be written and learning about the partnership between Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick. Dick Hill did a great job narrating, and captured HAL perfectly.

    At times stern, at other times patient, at times perceptive, at other times in sad denial, Olive Kitteridge, a retired schoolteacher, deplores the changes in her little town and in the world at large, but she doesn't always recognize the changes in those around her.

    "Just couldn't handle the reader"
    Overall

    I wish Sandra Burr had chosen to just read the book in her wonderful voice without acting it. Her voices for most characters reminded me of Danny's imaginary friend Tony in The Shining-- gravelly and dead, totally inappropriate. Eventually I had to give up listening. Too bad, it seemed like a good book. Annoyance factor high.
