    Story

    Just as we were getting used to the Information Age, Daniel Pink tells us that it is ending. With it goes our focus on charts, statistics, and linear thinking. Traditional "left-brain" activities, like logic, analysis, and repetitive production, are being turned over to robots, computers, and offshore labor. The valued skills of the 21st Century will be those of the right brain: empathy, design, synthesis, and contextual thinking.

    Overall

    This is a great must-listen. Farber is funny and lively and provides great information that is easy to digest while driving, walking or running. Yes, it provides business insight but done in such a way that you feel that you were right there for the 1 hour seminar. You will definitely walk away with something from this listen.

    Striking, heartfelt, and utterly engrossing, Dispatches from the Edge is an unforgettable memoir that takes us behind the scenes of the cataclysmic events of our age and allows us to see them through the eyes of one of America's most trusted, fearless, and pioneering reporters.

    Overall

    Anderson's own history is fascinating but what really struck me with this audiobook was the emotion he was speaking with. This wasn't just "here's my story" - it was full of emotion and opinion and really made listening to it all enjoyable. I listened while driving and I often went driving just to listen to more of it. Highly recommended.

  • Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 43 mins)

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

    Overall

    I really enjoyed listening to Blink. Malcolm Gladwell reads it in a wonderful tone and it's almost like listening to him tell you the story in person (or at a conference). The insights into intuition found in the book are wonderful - and explained thoroughly well - my only issue is that he doesn't provide any real conclusions, you have to come up with your own. That would be fine except there really are some great "next steps" that many people might be looking for as a way to improve their "intuition" and so in that sense, this book is lacking. But if you want to hear great stories about how it works (but have to figure out on your own how to really do it), this book is wonderful.
