    True North shows how anyone who follows their internal compass can become an authentic leader. This leadership tour de force is based on research and first-person interviews with 125 of today's top leaders: with some surprising results. In this important audiobook, acclaimed former Medtronic CEO Bill George and coauthor Peter Sims share the wisdom of these outstanding leaders and describe how you can develop as an authentic leader.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The content is clear and to the point. The performer keeps you engage. The story is full of learning lessons that most of us have yet to experience, but eventually will.
    And when we do we will be better equipped to face a challenging situation (requiring good leadership) with a greater chance of succes than if we had never listened the audio version. Will probably purchase the hardcover so that I may butcher it with my highlighters!


    What other book might you compare True North to and why?

    At this time I'm listening in tandem the following: (1) The Contrarian's Guide To Leadership; (2) Leadership Isn't For Corwards; (3) Creating Magic; and, (4) Great Leaders Grow- which I plan to return because Ken Blanchard really missed the boat on this one. However, you will find the first three great companions to True North, as well as, to each other. On a side note, I urge all who find 'leadership' a must read to pick up a copy of: Leading At The Edge (Catherine McCarthy) and Endurance (Alfred Lansing).
    Sorry about not using fancy words and/or eye catching phrases- I'm just down to earth, a plain talker, and, quite simple.


    What does Mark Adams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He keeps you engage and focus on the message.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    South Is Not An Option!


    Any additional comments?

    I don't consider myself a smart person- but, I'm intelligent enough to know that I can learn from others and to know the difference between a good read as opposed to a poorly written book. I find this audio book to be a 4.5 to a 4.75!

    In this offbeat approach to leadership, college president Steven B. Sample - the man who turned the University of Southern California into one of the most respected and highly rated universities in the country - challenges many conventional teachings on the subject.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    "Carolyn McCormick should read all my Audible Books"

    Would you listen to The Hunger Games again? Why?

    Yes. It's good fiction, but Ms.McCormick made it great fiction. Although I was either jogging, cycling, or, working out at the gym while listening to the book,Ms.McCormick's performance made me feel like I was sitting in the theatre watching the movie. And, I love going to the movies!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hunger Games?

    When Catnis shot the arrow through the apple.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    Refer to my comments for Question #1.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed my head off when I visualized Catnis shooting her arrow through the apple. It reminds me of my two daughters: don't stress it out. get their attention. head strong, and head first, into the stonewall. worry about the broken pieces, later.


    Any additional comments?

    I've already suggested to Audible.com that their loyal customers should have the option to choose the performer they would like to hear tell the story. I guess that is wishful thinking. But, I will keep on asking for a refund every time I purchase an audible book read by someone who kills the story.
