  • Steve Jobs

    • ABRIDGED (9 hrs and 17 mins)
    • By Walter Isaacson
    • Narrated By Dylan Baker

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    David says: "Don't bother with the abridged version"
    "GREAT story - terribly edited"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was absolutely fascinating. I purchased the abridged version though and thought that it didn't flow well. That could have been improved but the overall story was worth it.

  • Words Can Change Your Brain: 12 Conversational Strategies to Build Trust, Resolve Conflicts, and Increase Intimacy

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 28 mins)
    • By Andrew Newberg, Mark Robert Waldman
    • Narrated By Mark Robert Waldman
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Sometimes it feels as if the more we talk, the less we are heard. But in groundbreaking research, Andrew Newberg, M.D., and Mark Robert Waldman have discovered a powerful strategy called Compassionate Communication that allows two brains to work together as one. In twelve clear steps, Compassionate Communication actually changes our brain structure — as well as the brain of the person we are talking to — in a way that helps establish a bond between people. In this unique state — free from conflict and distrust — we can communicate more effectively, listen more deeply, collaborate without effort, and succeed more quickly at any task. Using data collected from MBA students, couples in therapy, caregivers, and brain scans, Newberg and Waldman have seen again and again that Compassionate Communication can transform a difficult conversation into a deeply satisfying one, literally in a matter of a few minutes.Whether you are negotiating with your boss or your employees, arguing with your spouse, or coping with your kids, Compassionate Communication is a simple and unbeatable way to achieve a win-win dialogue to help you reach your goals. With its clear prescription and proven results, Words Can Change Your Brain will change how you think and speak to virtually everyone.

    Amazon Customer says: "Stunned"
    "Mostly the same stuff I've read before"
    Any additional comments?

    This book could be interesting at times but if you've read other books like this about the brain - it's mainly the same information. What I couldn't believe was the narration! I read reviews about how the narrator's voice was annoying, but I was surprised to find that he almost sounds like he has a speech impediment when he's saying words with the "T" sound. I found that to be annoying and disruptive to listening.

    Lea says: "Good basic info and somewhat motivational but...."
    "Felt like I was being talked down to"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would make it more informational and not a story. I would also have it read by someone other than the authors.

    Has How to Talk So Teens Will Listen and Listen So Teens Will Talk turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I did not need a story to learn the concepts.

    How could the performance have been better?

    The authors were trying to act and it was so unbelievable it turned me off.
