    Science is now revealing how the flow of thoughts actually sculpts the brain. By combining breakthroughs in neuroscience with insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you, too, can use your mind to shape your brain for greater happiness, love, and wisdom.

    "Best listened to @ 2x speed"
    Overall

    The content requires little deep thought or processing and is presented in a very gradual fashion. The narrator stretches a 2 hour read into a 6 plus hour listen. If you value your time listen @ 2x speed.

  • Blue Ocean Strategy: How to Create Uncontested Market Space and Make Competition Irrelevant

    In an audiobook that challenges everything you thought you knew, W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne assert that tomorrow's leading companies will succeed, not by battling their rivals for market share in the bloody "red ocean" of a shrinking profit pool, but by creating "blue oceans" of untapped new market spaces ripe for growth.

    Robert says: "Get the actual book"
    "Text to Speech??"
    Overall

    The "narrator's voice" appears to be computer generated text to voice. Many words are laughingly mispronounced. The voice does not sound like other samples of the narrator's true voice. The content is worthwhile.

    Are you really motivated to achieve your dreams? The answer may surprise you. Research shows that as many as 80% of us over-estimate our level of motivation. No wonder so many dreams die unfulfilled, so many goals remain forever out of reach. Think about the important goals you could achieve if you were truly motivated. Don't you owe it to yourself to give them your best possible shot?

    Overall

    Mr. Beeler is initially engaging....then ..... overbearing.. This material requires written references that are available for review. Biblical references to Cosmopolitan sensationalism seem to reflect a lack of focus... a rambling pedantic lecture. Motivation is the topic that appears to be lost in the self indulgent delivery. The voice is challenging to endure. The material is redundant and NOTHING new. Buzzwords, hackneyed expressions, and vague philosophical allusions lead to a pseudointellectual attempt to authenticate the concepts. Soul is.......
    A brief summary:
    1. Change requires reviewing/challenging your belief systems.
    2. Commitment is essential - more important than willpower.
    3. Align your actions with your stated values.
    4. Contribution to the greater good is more powerful and sustaining for most than personal pleasure or advancement.

    In business, survival depends on meeting objectives. Most failures in organizations today are not the result of a lack of smarts; they are caused by a lack of execution. Things just don't get done. Defining a clear strategy and meeting those goals is one thing. Sticking to strategy and meeting those goals is quite another. The 4 Disciplines of Execution teaches how to focus on your top priorities and get the critical things accomplished.

    Charles says: "Good, but lacking in materials"
    "Don't buy this audiobook !!"
    Overall

    I am a longtime follower of Stephen Covey and the various Principles and Disciplines. This audiobook REQUIRES an accompanying CD with digital versions of the "Work Compass" and other graphic material necessary for following and implementing the "4 Disciplines". I have contacted the Franklin Covey Company and they have stated that the publisher is responsible. If you are interested in the material you will likely have to go to the seminar in person. I would suggest that for similar such audiobooks with accompanying materials that Audible.com have them available as an accompanying download. How do I get my money back?
