    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a leader and visionary of the civil rights movement, was first and foremost a preacher. This unique collection features a selection of Dr. King's best sermons - some not heard since he first delivered them!

    J. A. McCarron says: "Best audible book yet"
    "Wish he were still alive..."
    Overall

    Fantastic collection of Dr. King's sermons/speeches, with good introductions. The sound quality is surprisingly good. It makes you wonder where these kinds of leaders are today. We could sure use them.

    The Nazis discovered it. The Allies won the war with it. It conquered diseases, changed laws, and single-handedly launched the era of antibiotics. This incredible discovery was sulfa, the first antibiotic medication. In The Demon Under the Microscope, Thomas Hager chronicles the dramatic history of the drug that shaped modern medicine.

    Any additional comments?

    It seems hard to imagine that this book could be as good as it is, given it's subject matter. It's wonderfully written, suspenseful, and well edited. It doesn't waste a moment of your time.

    Why are you captivated by some people but not by others? Why do you recall some brands yet forget the rest? In a distracted, overcrowded world, how do certain leaders, friends, and family members convince you to change your behavior? Answer: fascination, the most powerful way to influence decision-making. It's more persuasive than marketing, advertising, or any other form of communication. And it all starts with seven universal triggers: lust, mystique, alarm, prestige, power, vice, and trust.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It's OK.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sally Hogshead? Why or why not?

    No. Her gimmick to charge you almost double the cost of this book for an internet test that costs her nothing is disgraceful.

  • Protecting the Gift: Keeping Children and Teenagers Safe (And Parents Sane)

    In his groundbreaking best seller The Gift of Fear, Gavin de Becker showed millions of readers that, like every creature on earth, human beings can predict violent behavior. Now, in this exclusive audio presentation of Protecting the Gift, de Becker empowers parents to fully trust their own intuition when it comes to their children's safety. In this indispensable resource, de Becker provides keen insights into the behavior and strategies of predators. He offers practical new steps to enhance children's safety at every age level: specific questions parents can ask to effectively screen and evaluate babysitters, daycare services, schools, and doctors; a "Test of 12" safety skills children need before being alone in public; warning signs to help parents protect children from sexual abuse; and how to keep teenage girls and boys from unsafe situations with peers and adults. De Becker also shatters the myth that rules like "Never talk to strangers" will keep your children safe. By showing what danger really looks like - as opposed to what we might imagine it looks like - de Becker gives parents freedom from many common worries and unwarranted fears.

    Story

    This is one of the most important and best-presented books I've ever listened to. It tells what parents, children and especially young women need to know to keep from becoming victims of violent crime. I've been in law enforcement for a long time, and much was eye-opening to me. The only drawback is that it is severely abridged, and there is no unabridged version.

    The Marine Corps Way shows managers at all levels how to apply the tactics and techniques of maneuver warfare to achieve overwhelming results in today's fiercely competitive market environment. You'll learn how to reshape your organization based on seven guiding principles: targeting critical vulnerabilities, boldness, surprise, focus, decentralized decision-making, tempo, and combined arms.

    There's more here than first meets the ear. There are lots of great historical examples from both history of warfare and business to illustrate the concepts.

    You need to listen multiple times to get the full effect, and it's written and read so well, that repeating is not a chore. I'm buying the actual book as a reference.

    The only "bad" thing about this book, is that the abridged version should have been at least twice as long.

    This book has very valuable information about dealing with people--especially those that are attacking you. Sound quality isn't that great, but it's a lot better than a poor book with great sound quality.

    What's true for training great trial lawyers is true for all winning presenters. According to renowned trial attorney and best-selling author Gerry Spence, presenting a case before decision makers is not simply a technique, but an occasion for summoning your deepest reserves to advocate on behalf of something crucial.

    In this lecture, Thomas Frank distills the central argument from his New York Times best seller, What's the Matter With Kansas?, which unravels the great political mystery of our day: why do so many Americans vote against their economic and social interests? In this special recorded lecture, Thomas Frank answers the riddle by examining his home state, Kansas, a place once famous for its radicalism.

    "Great Explanation, Not a Lot of Solutions"
    Overall

    "Kansas" is well worth the money. Franks does a great job of explaining how the latest Republican Revolution came to be. He tells how it works. He doesn't, however, have a lot of ideas for how to counter it. For that I would suggest George Lakoff's "Don't think of an Elephant!" and "Moral Politics."
