    Jaron Lanier, a Silicon Valley visionary since the 1980s, was among the first to predict the revolutionary changes the World Wide Web would bring to commerce and culture. Now, in his first book, written more than two decades after the web was created, Lanier offers this provocative and cautionary look at the way it is transforming our lives for better and for worse.

    Where does You Are Not a Gadget rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book is written like a series of math problems and explores many topic areas from IT and economics to an estimated outcome of social applications of our time. The book is intense and can distracting if you are driving. Highly recommended.

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    What did you love best about What Every BODY Is Saying?

    Will certainly help me understand body language. I'm already using some techniques. Need notes to help remember all the lessons.

  • It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership

    It Worked for Me is filled with vivid experiences and lessons learned that have shaped the legendary career of the four-star general and former Secretary of State Colin Powell. At its heart are Powell's "Thirteen Rules" - such as "Get mad, then get over it" and "Share credit" - that introduce his principles for effective leadership: conviction, hard work, and, above all, respect for others. A natural storyteller, Powell offers warm and engaging parables with wise advice on succeeding in the workplace and beyond.

    Jean says: "Great Story Teller"
    "More life lessons than I could ever consume"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    There are certainly enough experiences in this book to fit anyone. It's a bounus having Powell read his own book as he's a great reader.
