  • The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly?

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 12 mins)
    • By Seth Godin
    • Narrated By Seth Godin
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    In his bravest and most challenging book yet, Seth Godin shows how we can thrive in an economy that rewards art, not compliance. He explains why true innovators focus on trust, remarkability, leadership, and stories that spread. And he makes a passionate argument for why you should be treating your work as art. Art is not a gene or a specific talent. It's an attitude, available to anyone who has a vision that others don't, and the guts to do something about it.

    I think I've "read" all of Seth's books. My fav of the bunch was Tribes. It encourages all of us to engage with the like-minded in a compelling way, and our Tribe will form. It's a "Rah rah!" book that reminds us that we all have a unique story to tell, and that there is an audience for it.

    But this is about The Icarus Deception. TID is about what Seth refers to as "Art." More specifically, your unique Art, and how your fears are hindering you from flying closer and closer to the sun.

    Being a musician and Realtor, this book hit me from two sides. From my music side, it has completely encouraged me to be much more free with my ideas, and to stop making someone else's Art. From a business perspective, Seth has always inspired me to get outside the box and stay there for a while. TID keeps me on the path, or off of it I suppose.

    Seth reads his own work. He's very good at it, as he should be with the 1000s of talks he has given over his career. The pace is nice. I listened to a majority of TID on a 10 hour late night drive across the Midwest. Seth kept me awake.

    Definitely worth a monthly credit. If you like Seth's other works, you'll not be overly surprised but indeed satisfied. If this is your first Seth Godin book, you'll be both.

  • The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated)

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 4 mins)
    • By Timothy Ferriss
    • Narrated By Ray Porter

    This expanded edition includes dozens of practical tips and case studies from readers who have doubled their income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book. Also included are templates for eliminating email and negotiating with bosses and clients, how to apply lifestyle principles in unpredictable economic times, and the latest tools, tricks, and shortcuts for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either.

    suzanne says: "Step 3: PROFIT!!!"
    "A great how-to, with actual step by step direction"

    I gotta tell ya... I read/listen to a ton of this type of book. What constantly frustrates me about many of these reads it that it is all theory and philosophy. 4HWW is NOT that at all! It's cover to cover hands on activity and exercise to get you on the road to what's really important to you.

    I'm in the middle of my third full listen, but have listened to several chapters over and over. It's definitely worth a monthly credit. Highly recommended.
