    If you could sum up If You Ask Me in three words, what would they be?

    I liked Betty White before listening to her read this book. Now, I love this dear lady. She's a blast...young at heart and wise in choosing to love life. I told three people about this book before I even finished listening.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Betty talked about her experience with Coco/Koko the famous primate. What a neat experience to learn about.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed listening to this while walking. It felt like Betty was talking and talking with me. Really and enjoyable book from start to finish.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Crush It! to be better than the print version?

    Gary Vaynerchuk is inspiring in both online reading and in his narration of this audiobook. He talks 500 miles a minute and gets excitable so it is sometimes hard to follow but you can feel the passion within his voice.
    I listened to this shortly after losing my job and found that it prevented me from feeling disappointed or negative. I listened to it a couple of times because it was so inspiring. I've always believed in finding your passion and doing what you love for work so you don't ever have to feel that you actually worked a day in your life. So far, I've been able to do that. I had not "cashed in" on this by working at my own businesses during my 20s-30s, but I did this when I was young and chose a career with one of the passions I had.
    I've been able to recently restart into working for myself doing what I love. (Information Technology work).
    I commute from the kitchen to the office for work. I start work at 10AM and end at 3PM with a break for lunch in-between. I stay focused on my passion during those hours and earn enough to live comfortably. This book helped me realize it was possible to work on my own again, doing what I love.


    What three words best describe Gary Vaynerchuk’s performance?

    Exciting, passionate, uplifting


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, Gary kept you wanting more info on his story and the story of others he shares.


    Any additional comments?

    Need some positive force in your life...LISTEN TO THIS!

    From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done has the potential to transform the way you work - and the way you experience work. At any level of implementation, David Allen's entertaining and thought-provoking advice shows you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Although it is a bit long and some of the material seems repetitive, the principles in this book can definitely change your life. Just organize in the method described and put even some of these things into play instantly and you will start to see the success. That will lead you to listen again and you will then have the keys to getting things done, in work, home life, and anywhere. The material seems "dry" at first but putting it into practice shows the impact it can have.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Getting Things Done?

    As mentioned, you have to put these things into play immediately and even at a basic level these methods can show you results so I'm working on getting the final pieces of this into play. I started small and have gone through the steps about three times because I wasn't completely interested in making the dramatic changes. I felt more comfortable doing it this way but it works so now I wonder why I didn't just dive right in!
    You will be amazed at how much simpler life becomes when applying these principles.
