    Story

    Michael Oher is the young man at the center of the true story depicted in The Blind Side movie (and book) that swept up awards and accolades. Though the odds were heavily stacked against him, Michael had a burning desire deep within his soul to break out of the Memphis inner-city ghetto and into a world of opportunity. While many people are now familiar with Oher's amazing journey, this is the first time he has shared his account of his story in his own words.

    Where does I Beat the Odds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It kept me engaged...very interesting.


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

    No - I like to listen on the way to work and when cleaning around the house. The book very quickly though. It was hard to stop listening.

  • The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable

    Story
    (819)

    Maverick thinker Nassim Nicholas Taleb had an illustrious career on Wall Street before turning his focus to his black swan theory. Not all swans are white, and not all events, no matter what the experts think, are predictable. Taleb shows that black swans, like 9/11, cannot be foreseen and have an immeasurable impact on the world.
