    If you had the opportunity to work where, when, and with whom you wanted - all while getting paid very well - would you take it? Self-made multimillionaire and best-selling author Michael Masterson did, and with Ready, Fire, Aim he'll show you how to do the same.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Ready, Fire, Aim to be better than the print version?

    equal but different for the obvious reason


    What about Sean Pratt’s performance did you like?

    He was able to speak directly to what business owners are going through.


    Any additional comments?

    Great business book provides understanding, action and encouragement. I would highly recommend reading it if you are a business owner.

    No


    What could David J. Schwartz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Organize his thoughts this thing was a mess


    How could the performance have been better?

    Pay a narrator his narration was awful


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Magic of Thinking Big?

    I would send him back to the drawing board to organize his thoughts it was all over the place.

  • The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By Malcolm Gladwell

    Story
    (1812)

    In The Tipping Point, New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell looks at why major changes in society happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a few fare-beaters and graffiti artists fuel a subway crime wave, or a satisfied customer fill the empty tables of a new restaurant. These are social epidemics, and the moment when they take off, when they reach their critical mass, is the Tipping Point.

    David says: "Makes sense to me."
    "Had some good nuggets but WAYYYY to much minutia"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Overall, I would probably not recommend this book, however, I would not say that I wasted my time listening to it. It had some nice insights, but it came up short on suggestions for taking action on the information. It also did a poor job of making salient connections between the various "tipping point" events. Finally, Malcolm got into way to much minutia at points (eg- reading MANY names from the phone book). As a positive, the author/narrator was very pleasing/soothing to listen to.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The broken windows theory


    Was The Tipping Point worth the listening time?

    Marginally
