    The first presidential debate between Republican incumbent President George W. Bush and Democratic challenger Senator John Kerry took place at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, on September 30, 2004. The focus of this debate was foreign policy. PBS's Jim Lehrer was the moderator.

    A surprisingly solid and lucid exchange without the spin and personal attacks so common to the genre. Jim Lehrer does an excellent job as moderator and both men are as cogent as anyone would want. Very much worth listening to again. Exceeded my expectations.

    How do we as individuals and organizations survive amid tremendous change? Why are efforts to improve falling so short in real results, despite the millions of dollars in time, capital, and human effort being spent? How do we unleash creativity, talent, and energy in the midst of pressure? Is it realistic to believe that balance among personal, family, and professional life is possible? Stephen R. Covey demonstrates that the answer to these and other dilemmas is Principle-Centered Leadership, a long-term, inside-out approach to developing people and organizations.

    Overall

    Stephen Covey represents both the best and worst of current business books, frequently lacking intellectual rigor and sprinkled with smarmy buzzwords. If you can get past the first thirty minutes, he finally does settle down to the main points: that successful organizations need to engage all of their people and each of their essential human needs ("to live, to love, to learn, to leave a legacy"). Although he frequently mixes metaphors and risks smarminess, his essential points about maintaining integrity can't be argued, and when he connects in his own voice he really connects. Basically this audiobook is a collection of excerpts from various corporate trainings. Not exactly the same content as the book but worth listening to on a long drive, and more efficient than sitting through the seminars themselves.

    I don't know a lot of folks who don't read this book and think of folks they want to give it to. The trouble is that most folks dont' read, so this audio version is a godsend. As well as being an excellent introduction to Rich Dad's thought and theories for adults (and my favorite book on finances ever) it is also a terrific book on kids and education, encouraging folks through Kiyosaki's stories to think about the many ways that kids can learn, within and outside the narrow scholastic framework that deadens so many folks who fail there and traps so many who succeed.

    Very, very much worth hearing. I try to listen to it every six months or so, and have lent my CD of it to several people who have really been blown away and enjoyed it.

    An amazing overview of Kiyosaki's finance theories for anyone in business or just the necessary cash flows of life.
