    On March 14, 2012, more than three million people read Greg Smith's bombshell op-ed in the New York Times titled Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs. The column immediately went viral, became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, and drew passionate responses from former Fed chairman Paul Volcker, legendary General Electric CEO Jack Welch, and New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg. Mostly, though, it hit a nerve among the general public who question the role of Wall Street in society - and the callous "take-the-money-and-run" mentality that brought the world economy to its knees a few short years ago.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Why I Left Goldman Sachs to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because the author read it and his emotion came through.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fascinating inside look at modern Wall Street.


    What about Greg Smith’s performance did you like?

    His steadiness.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    His mixed emotions at leaving work he had loved. Also, his experience of 9/11.


    Any additional comments?

    I think Mr. Smith has achieved his purpose of exposing how greed has overtaken Wall Street traders. It will be interesting to see if there are meaningful management and regulatory changes as a result.

  • Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer

    In the form of warm, relaxed letters to a close friend, C. S. Lewis meditates on many puzzling questions concerning the intimate dialogue between man and God. He considers practical and metaphysical aspects of prayer, such as when we pray and where. He questions why we seek to inform God in our prayers if he is omniscient, whether there is an ideal form of prayer, and which of our many selves we show to God while praying.

    What made the experience of listening to Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer the most enjoyable?

    Letters to Malcolm is my favorite C.S. Lewis book. I enjoyed hearing it read to me. This was the last book Lewis prepared for publishing. To my mind, it is his most personal. I looked among his friends to find Malcolm only to learn that he is a composite of friends Lewis had.

    I thought the reader spoke a bit fast and often without much inflection. Still, I will listen to it again.
