    You can go after the job you want...and get it! You can take the job you have...and improve it! You can take any situation you're in...and make it work for you!

    Ralph says: "This is well worth listening too! Main points are."
    "Pure Gold"
    Overall

    I've listened to over 30 audio books. This is the best most practical book I've ever listened to. It works and it is not manipulation--pure gold.

    One of only sixteen unembedded American journalists who stayed in Baghdad's now-legendary Palestine Hotel throughout the American invasion of Iraq, NPR's Anne Garrels was at the very center of the storm. She brings us the sights, sounds, and smells of our latest war with unparalleled vividness and immediacy.

    Native Texan says: "My favorite book of the year!"
    "Garrels is Dedication/Bravery Personified"
    Overall

    This is good. Anne Garrels and her husband make an incredible team. She gives an exciting yet balanced account of the days leading up to the invasion along with gripping coverage of the initial stages of the invasion. I found her personality very engaging and her bravery and dedication to be extraordinary.

  • A Short History of Nearly Everything

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "Entertaining"
    Overall

    This book presents a complicated subject matter in a very entertaining fashion. It seemed to me to be a blend of scientific fact and some presumption. He makes huge presumptions at various points, but that is not a problem if you discern where this occurs. Much of this book is very educational, though I would characterize it more as entertainment.

    Plan of Attack is the definitive account of how and why President George W. Bush, his war council, and allies launched a preemptive attack to topple Saddam Hussein and occupy Iraq. Bob Woodward's latest landmark account of Washington decision making provides an original, authoritative narrative of behind-the-scenes maneuvering, examining the causes and consequences of the most controversial war since Vietnam.

    Michael says: "Rorschach Test"
    "You Are There"
    Overall

    This book gives you the impression that you are a fly on the wall during very important discussions and decisions. This book confirmed my belief about the VP's role in the Iraqi invasion. Its over 7 hours, but it is so engaging that you will not want to stop listening.

    Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." That's the offer of Christianity, from God himself.

    "About Reality"

    Wow, all I can say is that this book is real and spoke powerfully to my heart.

  • The Breakout Principle: Maximize Creativity, Athletic Performance, Productivity and Personal Well-Being

    In The Breakout Principle, Dr. Herbert Benson delivers the ultimate self-help principle - simple instructions to activate a powerful biological trigger that converts conflict and confusion into clarity and extraordinary performance, a state athletes refer to as "the zone."

    J. James-Long says: "A forward-thinking scientist"
    "Honest Analysis"
    Overall

    I am not a fan of self help books, but this book is good. The analysis is nearly flawless and very balanced. If you are looking for a quick fix, this book is not for you. You may not agree with the author, but he clearly explains his justification for each major proposition. It is very convincing.
