    For business leaders and public figures in any arena, The Speed of Trust offers an unprecedented and eminently practical look at exactly how trust functions in our every transaction and relationship - from the most personal to the broadest, most indirect interaction - and how to establish trust immediately so that you and your organization can forego the time - killing, bureaucratic check - and - balance processes so often deployed in lieu of actual trust.

    What did you love best about The Speed of Trust?

    It's not preachy. It's written in a manner that is easy for any listener to relate. Trust really changes everything.


    What other book might you compare The Speed of Trust to and why?

    N/A


    What about Stephen R. Covey’s performance did you like?

    I love that he has a great deal of real world experiences. I like when he shares his faults. He doesn't write the book as if he's perfect. He explained his errors and how he learned from them.


    What did you learn from The Speed of Trust that you would use in your daily life?

    It has enabled me to understand the many aspects of trust. For instance, in the past I didn't understand why some relationships lacked trust. Now among many aspects I understand that motive is a key element. Also, I understand that if I trust someone I am more likely to give their actions the benefit of the doubt instead of jumping to negative conclusions.

    In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he’s only 13 years old, Theo Boone thinks he’s one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk—and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom. But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than expected. Because he knows so much—maybe too much—he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial.

    I am eternally grateful for this book. I have never read a book that impacted my life as much as this book. I return to it often when I need to reenergize my positive thoughts. I recommend this book for everyone. You must listen with an open mind and try all of the suggestions. You will be blown away by the power! It can and will change your life if you let it. But remember it takes practice, you cannot stray, but don't worry you can start over and over again.

    We've all seen it before: the ambitious leader who enjoys great success and then, inexplicably, crashes and burns. Perhaps this leader has been you. Leaders can't sustain effectiveness if they can't sustain themselves. Resonant Leadership offers inspiration, dozens of exercises, and other tools to help listeners become and remain successful leaders in their work and in their lives.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    In a voice both haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri describes her life as a geisha. Taken from her home at the age of nine, she is sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. Witness her transformation as you enter a world where appearances are paramount, virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder, women beguile powerful men, and love is scorned as illusion.

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Would you listen to The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV again? Why?

    Absolutely, this audio book was perfect!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the ability to follow along in a more involved manner rather than reading the text as an outsider looking in.


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

    The narratoration inspires a deeper understanding of the people in the bible.


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

    Greatest Story Ever Told!


    Any additional comments?

    Worth way more than one credit! I purchased the boxed CD set for $80, so one credit was incredible.

    This Audiobook will take you through the basics of Spanish with Basic Bootcamp, All About, and Pronunciation lessons. The five Basic Bootcamp lessons each center on a practical, real-life conversation. In the fifteen All About lessons, you’ll learn all about Spanish and Spain. Our native teachers and language experts will explain everything you need to know to get started in Spanish.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I wish they would have really focused on teaching instead of providing lots of information that I can't apply during an audio book. I just wanted the basics not the background of every word.


    What was most disappointing about Innovative Language Learning’s story?

    I only listened to about 3 lessons because it wasn't effective.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Patrick Villanueva and Fernando Olivas ?

    The narrators did a good job, the lessons were lacking.
