    In The First 20 Hours, Josh Kaufman offers a systematic approach to rapid skill acquisition: how to learn any new skill as quickly as possible. His method shows you how to deconstruct complex skills, maximize productive practice, and remove common learning barriers. By completing just 20 hours of focused, deliberate practice you'll go from knowing absolutely nothing to performing noticeably well. What do you want to learn?

    What would have made The First 20 Hours better?

    focus on the art of learning, or rapid skill acquisition. I understand using something like yoga as an example of how you do RSA, but for about the last hour I've been listening to how to actually DO yoga, which doesn't interest me. I didn't want to hear about what you learned about yoga.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    something else.

  • Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

    No, but he's an excellent reader and I will look for more books performed by him in the future.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

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

    Yes, and have. It's a great story, and a great production of the audio version.


    Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki and Harlan Ellison ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, none.


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

    I think the title is the tagline, and the movie is coming in 2014, can't wait.


    Any additional comments?

    A great story, kept me drawn in during the commutes and excited to get back to it at the end of the day. Can't say the same about the next book, but this one was great, would love to find more like it.

    One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

    Story

    The reader, Emma Galvin, while taking some getting used to in the first book, is great, and the story is really good. I'm not a book-worm, not an "intellectual" type, so can't say how this compares against great literary works, but if you enjoy an interesting gripping story, this is one.

    Don't want to compare it to Hunger Games as many others have, but I'm enjoying this series as much as I did the Hunger Games. The stories have some similarities, but not alot. Can't wait for the third book.
