    This timeless text is required listening for any business person or athlete interested in strategy. It includes a soundtrack entitled "The Mysterious Sound of Wind In the Bamboo", a 43-minute collection of Zen-inspired Japanese music by the Matsu Take Ensemble.

    What made the experience of listening to The Art of War the most enjoyable?

    I was looking for something short that I had previously read. This was a great introductory audiobook.

    A Signature Performance: Kenneth Branagh plays this like a campfire ghost story, told by a haunted, slightly insane Marlow.

    Where does Heart of Darkness: A Signature Performance by Kenneth Branagh rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has been top two of the performances heard so far.


    Any additional comments?

    For the fun of it after listened to the book in its entirety, I went to Sparknotes and took a test on the material to see what I had retained. It was effective for someone with ADD.

  • Delivered From Distraction: Get the Most Out of Life with Attention Deficit Disorder

    In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. Now a second revolution is under way in the approach to ADD, and the news is great. Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.

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

    I will recommend this book to every person I know and many I will meet.


    What did you learn from Delivered From Distraction that you would use in your daily life?

    I learned a great many things about my situation and the oulets to help me cope and grow a s aperson.


    Any additional comments?

    Whisper-sync does not seem to work. Also, the only problem with this recording is that the chapters are improperly titled. For someone with ADD this is almost a deal breaker. It forced me to listen to the entire book as opposed to jumping around to areas I need first.

    Thousands of students and teachers and professionals alike have used the Super Study Album to defeat ADHD and achieve laser-like concentration, to stop procrastinating, and to work for extended periods at peak performance.

    What would have made Super Study Album better?

    The chapters are untitled and it is up to the listener to figure out which is which. This production is weak and jumbled.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    This did nothing to help me study, sleep or concentrate. I reccomend specific Podcasts over this collection of noises.

    (3324)

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Mica says: "Hurt version decidedly superior"
    "Classic made difficult by narration"

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

    This is an important book. The narrator Scott Brick uses different voices for characters. Some of the weaker characters come off overly irritating and the female voices are too breathy. This makes for a difficult listen in some instances.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Pick up the pace and drop the whining voices.


    Any additional comments?

    The whisper-sync does not seem to be working.
