    In 1938, just after publication of his all-time best-seller Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill revealed that he had broken the Devil’s Code, forcing him to confess his secrets. The resulting manuscript - Outwitting the Devil - proved so controversial, it was hidden for more than 70 years. Now, Sharon Lechter brings us this important book, annotating and editing it for a contemporary audience. Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Hill digs deep to identify the greatest obstacles we face in reaching our personal goals....

    The content of this book by Napoleon Hill is timeless and relevant and I highly recommend it to anyone.
    I would love to hear this book without the annotated comments of Sharon Lechter. It would've been enough with the original author, Napoleon Hill. I couldn't believe that she even included plugs for other books that she's authored. I've recommended this book to others and they've all responded the same about Sharon without any prompting from me.

    Tom Clancy returns to Jack Ryan's early days, in an extraordinary new novel of global political drama. Ryan's first days on the job at the CIA put him into a high-stakes game, playing for the life of the Pope and the stability of the Western world.

    Story

    The book has to be the slowest moving Tom Clancy book I've ever come across. It was extremely long and lacked any suspense. It was a good description of what it would be like in Russia during the time but I kept waiting for something great to happen. There were no shoot-outs, car chases, near misses or anything of great action. There were a lot of expletives and harsh language that didn't fit the slow moving pace. As I mentioned in the headline, it was fine but I expected more.

    Brigham Young was a rough-hewn craftsman from New York whose impoverished and obscure life was electrified by the Mormon faith. He trudged around the United States and England to gain converts for Mormonism, spoke in spiritual tongues, married more than 50 women, and eventually transformed a barren desert into his vision of the Kingdom of God. While previous accounts of his life have been distorted by hagiography or polemical exposé, John Turner provides a fully realized portrait of a colossal figure in American religion, politics, and westward expansion.

    Story

    The book provided a good look into the life of an early Mormon leader. The author, in my opinion, presented facts without inserting biases and left the reader to draw their own conclusions. I enjoyed the book and discovered a few facts about his life and personality rarely discussed in mainstream Mormon literature. I own the hardcover book which I like to skim for specific details but like the audio version for plodding through the less interesting details. Overall I am glad I listened to it.

    On a rainy November day, police detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are summoned to a mysterious traffic accident: a woman has fallen from a pedestrian bridge onto a car driving underneath. According to a witness, the woman may have been pushed. The investigation leads Pia and Oliver to a small village, and the home of the victim, Rita Cramer. On a September evening eleven years earlier, two seventeen-year-old girls vanished from the village without a trace.

    Story

    I was blow away by the complexity of the story. It had me guessing from the first page to the last. The plot twists and characters were so well developed and slowly exposed throughout the book. It was suspenseful and difficult to turn off. One of the best suspense/mystery novels I've listened to in a long time. It had the same gritty/original feel as, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story

    I have tried reading 'The Help' at the insistence of a good friend twice. I could never get into it because of all of the different story lines and characters that made it confusing. Listening to the audio version was like listening to an extended movie as it included different actresses reading the parts. It was very engaging and drew me into the audio book quickly and kept me interested. My wife was skeptical at first as she loves to read but had the same reaction as I did to the audio version. It was excellent. However, the end of the book leaves the audience wanting more. There wasn't enough closure for me.

    Jonah Lehrer arms us with the tools we need to figure out how we decide, drawing on cutting-edge research by Daniel Kahneman, Colin Camerer, and others, as well as the real-world experiences of a wide range of "deciders" - from airplane pilots and hedge fund investors to serial killers and poker players. Lehrer shows how people are taking advantage of the new science to make better television shows, win more football games, and improve military intelligence.

    Story

    I liked the illustrative stories that supported the science. Didn't agree with all of the moral and scientific perspectives of the author. The technical descriptions we a little heavy. I was confused at times with where I was at in the book because of the repetition of themes and material. Overall I enjoyed it as it complimented the theories of similar books of this genre.
