With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education.

    Story
    (83)

    Eddie Huang is the 30-year-old proprietor of Baohaus - the hot East Village hangout where foodies, stoners, and students come to stuff their faces with delicious Taiwanese street food late into the night - and one of the food world’s brightest and most controversial young stars. But before he created the perfect home for himself in a small patch of downtown New York, Eddie wandered the American wilderness looking for a place to call his own. Funny, raw, and moving, and told in an irrepressibly alive and original voice, Fresh Off the Boat recasts the immigrant’s story for the 21st century.

    Andy says: "authentic"
    "Great 1st generation perspective on food and life"

    Story
    If you could sum up Fresh Off the Boat in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, conversational, and funny memoir.


    What other book might you compare Fresh Off the Boat to and why?

    Reminds me of "Yes Chef" but with a little more grit and humor but the same enjoyable story of how food is so crucial to life.


    Which character – as performed by Eddie Huang – was your favorite?

    Of course the imitation of the mother is the best since no matter where you're from you can relate.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    All around fun book and an easy inspiring read.

    Story

    Throughout human history, certain drinks have done much more than just quench thirst. As Tom Standage relates with authority and charm, six of them have had a surprisingly pervasive influence on the course of history, becoming the defining drink during a pivotal historical period. A History of the World in 6 Glasses tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the 21st century through the lens of beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola.

    Stoker says: "Fun and Informative"
    "Enjoyable story and take on world history"

    Yes

    The realization that much of humanity may have been steered based on the ability for people to get drunk.


    Any additional comments?

    Great look into how drinking of all kinds likely had a major part in defining humanity and progressing as a species.

    The Thank You Economy is about something big, something greater than any single revolutionary platform. It isn't some abstract concept or wacky business strategy—it's real, and every one of us is doing business in it every day, whether we choose to recognize it or not. It's the way we communicate, the way we buy and sell, the way businesses and consumers interact online and offline.

    Scott says: "Gary is fun, but the book is a bit shallow"
    "Great read with bonus off-the-script commentary"

    Yes, it was very entertaining, and wonderful look into where the world of marketing is going.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is timely and believable perspective on the future of the economy.


    What about Gary Vaynerchuk’s performance did you like?

    Great to have his additional off-the-script insights, as he was able to provide more current updates on the topics.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could, but didn't need to.
