  • Putin Country: A Journey into the Real Russia

    In Putin Country: A Journey into the Real Russia, Garrels crafts an intimate portrait of the nation's heartland. We meet ostentatious mafiosos, upwardly mobile professionals, impassioned activists, scheming taxi drivers with dark secrets, and beleaguered steel workers. We discover surprising subcultures, like the LGBT residents of Chelyablinsk who bravely endure an upsurge in homophobia fueled by Putin's rhetoric of Russian "moral superiority" yet still nurture a vibrant if clandestine community of their own.

    I am filled with a mixture of emotions. Sorrow for the suffering of others, anger for the abuses in all their forms, compassion, and wonder. Thank you Anne Garrels for taking me with you to places I will never physically get to go. I'm grateful that I heard a recent radio interview, and chose to listen to your book!

  • The Ideal Team Player: How to Recognize and Cultivate the Three Essential Virtues: A Leadership Fable

    Story

    In The Ideal Team Player, Lencioni tells the story of Jeff Shanley, a leader desperate to save his uncle's company by restoring its cultural commitment to teamwork. Jeff must crack the code on the virtues that real team players possess and then build a culture of hiring and development around those virtues. Beyond the fable, Lencioni presents a practical framework and actionable tools for identifying, hiring, and developing ideal team players.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Ideal Team Player again? Why?

    As the Chief of Staff for my organization I am designing and implementing the Team Development programs. These programs are based on The 5 Dysfunctions of Teams, The Ideal Team Player, and Sean Covey's The Four Disciplines of Execution. While "5 Dysfunctions" focuses on team level development, "The Ideal Team Player" focuses on individual development. I find that I "rewind and re-listen" often with Lencioni, and that I stop and take notes (OneNotes) and record thoughts.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The drama was fantastic. The characters and personalities engaging.


    What about Stephen Hoye’s performance did you like?

    Hoye's performance was great. I liked his energy and pace.


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

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    While I began this book thinking about how to teach and share the principles of ideal team players with others, I came away with the determination to change my nature and to become a much better team player. Having and using this book is changing my life and making me a much better team player, and I am making my life a whole lot more fun and exciting.

    During his storied career as head coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, Phil Jackson won more championships than any coach in the history of professional sports. This is the story of a preacher's kid from North Dakota who grew up to be one of the most innovative leaders of our time. Eleven times, Jackson led his teams to the ultimate goal: the NBA championship - six times with the Chicago Bulls and five times with the Los Angeles Lakers. This book is full of revelations.

    Story

    As an NBA fan for 50 years, I found the story both insightful and entertaining. The historical aspects from Phil Jackson were worth the cost alone. The personal leadership insights were unexpected and frosting on a marvelous cake. This was a book that was easy to come back to whenever life interrupted.

    I'm glad I bought the book. I expect to listen to it several more times.

    As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man. When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey.

    Story

    The overall production was very good for an audio-only experience. I really had to focus and imagine what I was hearing, but my imagination doesn't match the cinematic experiences of Alien. Still, even with my limitations, I have been happy to leave the TV off in order to listen to the story. Warning: the language often made me wince. I understand the intent to make the emotions of the characters expressive and emphatic, I'm just not accustomed to hearing the expletives. Luckily, this isn't intended to be a bed-time story for children. :-)
