  • All Marketers Are Liars: The Power of Telling Authentic Stories in a Low-Trust World

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 20 mins)
    • By Seth Godin
    • Narrated By Seth Godin
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Every marketer tells a story. And if they do it right, we believe them. We believe that wine tastes better in a $20 glass than a $1 glass. We believe that an $80,000 Porsche Cayenne is vastly superior to a $36,000 VW Touareg, which is virtually the same car. We believe that $225 Pumas will make our feet feel better, and look cooler, than $20 no-names...and believing it makes it true.

    Oscar says: "Just OK for me."
    "A must read"

    I'm on the third listen of this, and I'd imagine I'll listen to it a few more times to internalize the depth of what he is saying. As a dyed in the wool conservative, Seth really does show his colors, but also gives credit where credit is due, for both parties. In fact, I found them very relevant and helpful in a modern context of how to "tell a story".

    he goes through the early days, to the "golden age" of marketing, and the modern changes and power of marketing and "telling a story".

    I'm ordering the rest of his books. It's changed my mindset about marketing. This audiobook spawned what I think are going to be very profitable ideas and approaches to marketing. Time will tell, but overall a great insight.

  • Attitude Plus Self-Confidence: The Cornerstone for Personal and Professional Success

    • ABRIDGED (2 hrs and 30 mins)
    • By Keith Harrell
    • Narrated By Keith Harrell

    If you are not where you want to be in life, renowned motivational speaker Keith D. Harrell is here to share the secret of making successful change and having the life your desire, and it all begins with attitude and self-confidence. Keith boils down a lifetime of lessons learned from his family, experience as a college basketball star, and a career at IBM, and peppers his core messages with the wit and wisdom of his live public talks.

    Monica says: "Excellent!!!"
    "basic, but good"

    I enjoyed this one, but found myself thinking he's 3/4 comedian and 1/4 basic motivational speaker. No real hardcore strategies, just a fun listen... I guess.

  • How to Win Friends & Influence People

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By Dale Carnegie
    • Narrated By Andrew MacMillan
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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."
    "Time tested and a wonderful book"

    You can't argue with his approach. It helps to know a little bit about the world in the 30s and 40s, but even so you just cant argue with the straight forwardness and honesty of his principles. I read the book some 20 years ago, and found my mind wandering at times this time around, but all in all its a great book.

  • Patton: The Man Behind the Legend, 1885-1945

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 33 mins)
    • By Martin Blumenson
    • Narrated By William Lavelle

    This detailed and persuasive study by the author of The Patton Papers was described by Patton's daughter Ruth as "an extraordinary book". It is widely considered the best biography ever written of the General, an American hero as compelling as he was complex.

    Ann says: "Patton the man"
    "Very indepth and well written"

    Very complete book about Patton, painted with a very realistic picture of who he was, both good and bad. I found it inspiring, especially as a fan of the man.

  • Trump: Think Like a Billionaire: What You Need to Know About Success, Real Estate, and Life

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 53 mins)
    • By Donald J. Trump, Meredith McIver
    • Narrated By Barry Bostwick

    It's not good enough to want it. You've got to know how to get it. Real estate titan, best-selling author, and TV star Donald J. Trump is the man to teach you the billionaire mindset; how to think about money, career skills, and life. Here is crucial advice on investing in real estate from the expert.

    Susan says: "A Great Promoter !"
    "an OK book"

    This book is not much more than the Don spilling out the contents of his head onto audio. I enjoyed it, but mostly to see how a billionaire thinks, not so much for his help on how to get there. He has a huge ego, but why not... he's Donald Trump! Alot of opinions how how to order at a restaurant and he likes his suits, not so much a step by step help on how to conquer the real estate world. It's still a good book, but only if you go into it with that in mind.

  • When Character Was King: A Story of Ronald Reagan

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 25 mins)
    • By Peggy Noonan
    • Narrated By Peggy Noonan

    No one has ever captured Ronald Reagan like Peggy Noonan. In When Character Was King, Noonan brings her own reflections on Reagan to bear, as well as new stories - from President George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, his Secret Service men and White House colleagues, his wife, his daughter Patti Davis, and his close friends - to reveal the true nature of a man even his opponents now view as a maker of big history.

    Peter says: "5 Star Book"
    "One of the best books so far"

    I wasnt familiar with peggy noonan before this book, but now Im a fan. one of the better audiobooks ive listened to in a while, and am listening to it for a second time. An insiders look at the greatest president of our time, who paints him as wonderfully human and uncommonly inspirational to conservatives everywhere. This one, is a must read in my opinion.
