    The creator and executive producer of Everybody Loves Raymond dissects the art of comedy and the making of a sitcom classic. In television, where programs can premiere and disappear in the same week, Everybody Loves Raymond reigned as America's best-loved show for nine years with more than 17 million viewers. As the number-one sitcom, it received more than 70 Emmy nominations, including two wins for best comedy.

    Margaret Campbell says: "For Raymond Lovers"
    "Enjoyable"
    Overall

    It was an enjoyable book. It show how well a single life episode can become a screen character.
    If you want to find some inspiring stories, here they are. If you are more interested on finding books about how to write Comedy, then look somewhere else.

  • The 360-Degree Leader: Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization

    In his nearly thirty years of teaching leadership, John Maxwell has encountered this question again and again: How do I apply leadership principles if I'm not the boss? It's a valid question that Maxwell answers in The 360-Degree Leader. You don't have to be the main leader, asserts Maxwell, to make significant impact in your organization. Good leaders are not only capable of leading their followers but are also adept at leading their superiors and their peers.

    "Religious message"
    Overall

    It is weird how some leaders try to instill their religious views on everything they talk about. This book is an example.
    It shouldn't be on the leadership/business section of the library.

    Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point: really hard, and not much fun at all. And then you find yourself asking if the goal is even worth the hassle. Maybe you're in a Dip: a temporary setback that you will overcome if you keep pushing. But maybe it's really a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better, no matter how hard you try.

    Andrew says: "Seth Should Have Quit"
    "Great Book and very well delivered"
    Overall

    This is a very well rounded book. Even when it reminds me of "The Magic of Thinking Big", this is a revised and contemporary approach to the topic of "Why being the best in the world matters".

    Quiting, on Seth Godin's approach is basically getting rid of clutter for the right reasons. Looking at the long term when making decisions about sticking to a decision or simply finding another important thing to do.

    Really good advice.

  • Lolita

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 32 mins)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Among the great literary achievements of the 20th century, Lolita soars in audio thanks to the incomparable Jeremy Irons, bringing to life Nabokov’s ability to shock and enthrall more than 50 years after publication. Lolita became a cause celebre because of the erotic predilections of its protagonist. But Nabokov's masterpiece owes its stature not to the controversy its material aroused but to its author's use of that material to tell a love story that is shocking in its beauty and tenderness.

    Jim says: "An Absolutely Gorgeous Audible Experience"
    "Listening is really painful"
    Overall

    Even when the book itself is really good, the narrator's job is dissapointing.

    I didn't go beyond the first 20 minutes of the program because I was about to fall asleep.

    My recommendation: Go out there and buy the book. Do not spend your money on this audio.
