    The first inside account of life within a Silicon Valley venture capital firm, eBoys is the fascinating true story of the six tall men who backed eBay, Webvan, and other billion-dollar start-ups that are transforming the Internet and setting a new pace for the economy - an audible.com audio exclusive!

    Sean says: "Entertaining but misinformed"
    "Art of Not Finishing"
    Overall

    While I enjoyed many of the historical insights, the exchanges and minute details got in the way and slowed down the story. The opening is colorfully painted with cursing which might turn off some readers. I ultimately decided not to finish it about 1/3 of the way.

    To research this unique, invaluable guide, CNBC business journalist Liz Claman took a long, hard look at her extensive list of financial contacts and invited only the smartest and most respected investors and business leaders to contribute to this audiobook. Now, for the first time ever, and in their own words, America's top moneymakers reduce their winning investment strategies to their most fundamental points, divulging what they believe is the most important advice they can give.

    "A Few Nuggets of Advice"
    Overall

    I kind of disagree with many of the investment ideals from this series-of-short-advices book, but I did glean some new and confirmed some already known truths about investing. Only sorta worth the listen.

    Do you have a hobby you wish you could indulge in all day? An obsession that keeps you up at night? Now is the perfect time to take that passion and make a living doing what you love. In Crush It! Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion, Gary Vaynerchuk shows you how to use the power of the Internet to turn your real interests into real businesses.

    Martin says: "Gary delivers!"
    "THE Reason to Listen to Audiobooks"
    Overall

    This is the perfect reason to listen to unabridged audiobooks. I've been following Gary for the better part of 3 years and to have him read his own book and add the comments, side notes, enthusiasm makes this way more valuable than print.

    With the principles outlined in Millionaire by Thirty, recent graduates will be earning enough interest on their savings to meet their basic living expenses by the time they're 30. And by the time they're 35, their investments will be earning more money than they are, guaranteeing them a happy, wealthy future.

    Drew says: "Millionaire by Thirty"
    "I wish there was an Abridged Copy"
    Overall

    The information/strategy presented is interesting and I'll be backing it up with further research. Three-stars because the book authors (also the reader) seemed to just be filling time. I put the iPod on double speed to slog through the fluff to get to the meat.

    An excellent insight into how to be differently creative and think outside the normal bounds of product development and enhancement. There's a reason IDEO is the best in their field.

    The 4 Hour Work Week explains what a lifestyle entrepreneur is and why you should want to become one. It teaches you how to "kill" your job and design a life, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to replace your dreams with goals, and more. Listeners can lead a rich life by working only four hours a week, freeing up the rest of their time to spend it living the lives they want.

    Tim says: "Some good ideas but, not so sure. . ."
    "Life Changing"
    Overall

    I'm not entirely sure how I came across this book, but it's been life changing. Expertly presented and quite humorous. It should be on your Wish List if not in My Library.

    Whether you're dealing with an unruly teenager or an office bully, Dr. Ury's method will help you gain control in even the most difficult situations. More than getting mad or getting even, Getting Past No will get you results!

    "Read It"
    Overall

    If you need to do any sort of negotiation either in personal or professional life, this is a must read. The author writes a clear formula for helping readers get the best possible outcome. It seems a little dry 20-20 hindsight, but expertly organized and presented.
