    A holy man to Hindus, a hero to Muslims, and a criminal to the British, Mohandas K. Gandhi was an inspiring figure of the 20th century, a man whose quest to live in accord with God’s highest truth led him to initiate massive campaigns against racism, violence, and colonialism.

    "Great book, Good enough narration."
    Overall

    The book itself is awesome, needless to say, just like the man who wrote it. Narration is good enough. Bill Wallace tried hard to imitate Gandhi's voice and I would say succeeded for most part. However, the narration clearly fell short of the mark when pronouncing the names of Indian leaders or villages. Considering that this book is a real treasure to own, I would have loved to see this book narrated by someone who can bring more nativity to the listener. John Lee from 'The White Tiger' would have been a perfect fit.

    Katie Carew is fed up. Everything keeps going wrong. If only she could be anyone but herself! But Katie has to be careful what she wishes for...it just might come true!

    "Reasonably good but expensive"
    Overall

    My 7 year old daughter seems to like this reasonably and so do I. However, it is too expensive for the amount of listening time it provides. A bundle of 4 books (1 - 4) on Amazon costs less than this.

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By Malcolm Gladwell

    Story
    (4618)

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"
    "It is all about practice"
    Overall

    While I don't agree with everything in this book, it explains the importance of practice with numerous examples. I recommend this book especially to people who have kids because it helps better shape our thought process with practical ideas.
