  • Love Is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence Friends

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By Tim Sanders
    • Narrated By Tim Sanders
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Tim Sanders, Chief Solutions Officer at Yahoo!, puts forth a wildly original idea: It pays to be nice. Sanders shows how being a "lovecat" will help you accomplish your goals, both in and out of the office.

    Robert says: "Wonderful Model"
    "The least"

    This is the least "business" business book you will ever read, and that is a dashing compliment. Tim is the coolest guy in corporate America, a hip hype-meister with a warm heart, and it's the latter message that's the most important. Love is, indeed, the killer app. Don't dis this due to culture shock--there's money in the trails of these lovecats. Robert Smith must be mortified, though.

  • Total Self Confidence

    • ORIGINAL (3 hrs)
    • By Kenneth Baum
    • Narrated By Kenneth Baum

    Confidence is a belief that you have what it takes to succeed. This insightful program will teach you to have the attitude of Total Self Confidence - confidence for the sale, the speech, the date, the big game! No matter what the challenge in life, your level of confidence determines your success.

    Robert says: "An Unmitigated Disaster."
    "An Unmitigated Disaster."

    First, the voice. Someone slowed the ol' record player down to 33 and a third, and he maintains this purportedly hypnotic tone until you'd rather like a turn at strangling him. Second, no structure. Just launches into his spiel giving you no reason to follow. Third, nothing at all new. Old vignettes delivered as if he'd come up with them himself; and then suddenly he's guiding the listener through Tony Robbins-style NLP belief-pattern changing sessions, but with a fraction of the enthusiasm, and hampered by the slow-motion voice. This reeks of a scattershot amateur, late to the game, and not sure what he wants to do with the listener at all.

  • Networking with Millionaires...and Their Advisors

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 34 mins)
    • By Thomas J. Stanley
    • Narrated By Thomas J. Stanley

    In The Millionaire Next Door, best selling author Thomas Stanley identified the millionaires around you. In The Millionaire Mind, he told you how they think. Now, he tells you how to get their business.

    Keyvan says: "Well Read, With Practical and Insightful Guidance"
    "Dry interview format, but impressive material."

    I wasn't prepared for the format here--a faux interview between the author and an interviewer. Still, presented are a number of great ways to embed oneself into wealthy groups, generally by being generously helpful, so that the wealthy call on you then on a paying basis for whatever it is that you provide.

  • Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity

    • ABRIDGED (2 hrs and 49 mins)
    • By David Allen
    • Narrated By David Allen

    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.

    Rick says: "Getting Things Done"
    "Clean, clear, brilliant shock of light."

    Throw out all the tired iterations of time management, all the books and tapes, all the Franklin Covey planners, and let the flames clean the skyline. David Allen has arrived. He is a crisp, articulate, intelligent, and quick spokesman, but he himself is not the point. His system is a common sense revolution in time management, and it will change the landscape. The "hard" and the "soft" landscape.

  • Get Anyone to Do Anything and Never Feel Powerless Again

    • ABRIDGED (1 hr and 43 mins)
    • By David J. Lieberman
    • Narrated By Scott Bryce

    This revolutionary audiobook explains how to see through people, how to avoid being manipulated, and how to get the upper hand in every situation. Learn how to gain control and influence anyone, anytime.

    Art says: "Good practical advice"
    "Big hat, no cattle."

    The title, of course, is preposterous. But that's the draw. Can we actually even come close to acheiving either of these two goals? A little bit? That would be worth it, wouldn't it? Unfortunately for the reader, there is nothing new amongst these digital syllables, and certainly nothing approaching the kind of substance that would justify the title. What I can't figure out is why the guy didn't write two books, to milk more cash from this stunt. Then again, maybe since One Promise books already flooded the marketplace, he figured that he'd be the first one to have a Two Promise title!

  • Making a Life, Making a Living

    • ABRIDGED (2 hrs and 52 mins)
    • By Mark Albion
    • Narrated By Mark Albion

    Few of us will regret not having spent more time at the office upon reaching heaven's gate. Yet as we focus on making a good living, we often forget to make a life. Inspiring and eye-opening, this audio program proves that you can find work you really love and will help you create a livelihood that enriches both the world and yourself.

    Robert says: "A good shot at the personal account format."
    "A good shot at the personal account format."

    As long as you don't expect a step-by-step guide at how to "make a life" instead of "making a living", this is a nice personal account format exploration of jumping out of the rat race to follow the heart. Cynics be damned. They already are, aren't they? And don't they know it? I don't know if hope floats, but it exists, and that's more than enough.
