    Embracing the Wide Sky is a unique and brilliantly imaginative portrait of how we think, learn, remember and create, brimming with personal insights and anecdotes, and explanations of the most up-to-date, mind-bending discoveries from fields ranging from neuroscience to psychology and linguistics. This is a profound and provocative book that will transform our understanding and respect for every kind of mind.

    Story

    I greatly enjoyed his explanations of how he experiences the world and rate these sections of the book very high. The other information about language development, mathematical reasoning, and other areas were interesting but very dense. If it weren't for interspersing his personal observations I would have found these sections to be less interesting.

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    Story

    Rob Lowe reads it in a very conversational style. In many sections you sense he is truly telling you a story, personally. His many impersonations of celebrities like Cary Grant, Francis Ford Coppolla, Patrick Swayze and Bill Clinton are so entertaining! Lastly, who knew that Rob Lowe was so connected to so many people in history - not merely celebrities. Of all the audiobooks I've listened to this is by far my favorite.

    In this, his first audiobook, Tony Hsieh - the widely admired CEO of Zappos, the online shoe retailer -explains how he created a unique culture and commitment to service that aims to improve the lives of its employees, customers, vendors, and backers. Using anecdotes and stories from his own life experiences, and from other companies, Hsieh provides concrete ways that companies can achieve unprecedented success.

    Story

    It's a good tale of Tony Hsieh told by Tony Hsieh in an entertaining manner. Overall a good book for the audio format because it's not a how to book, you won't be taking notes throughout, and the take-a-ways are very few. In the end I have an appreciation for customer service and the deliberate action required to make it happen. I'll just say that I'm happy I didn't spend time reading it but rather could listen during my exercise.
