    The Success Principles by Jack Canfield, co-creator of the phenomenal best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series, will teach you how to increase your confidence, tackle daily challenges, live with passion and purpose, and realize all your ambitions. This audio spells out the timeless principles used by successful men and women throughout history. And the fundamentals are the same for all people and all professions, even if you're currently unemployed.

    "The Success Priniciples"
    Overall

    Jack Canfield seems to have collected all the success principles ever taught and put them all in one book. He provides useful examples to illustrate each principle. The book has a website that provides additional support material. This is a good audiobook to listen to but I give it a lower rating as many of the principles were left out in this abridged version. In order to get the full benefit, you will have to purchase the book.

  • Doing Both: Capturing Today's Profit and Driving Tomorrow's Growth

    When companies face key strategic decisions, they often take one path and abandon the other. They focus on innovation and new business at the expense of core businesses, or vice versa. They stress discipline and sacrifice flexibility. They focus on customers and ignore partners. And they struggle. Cisco believes there is a better way: Doing Both, which means approaching every decision as an opportunity to seize, not a sacrifice to endure.

    The author is an executive of Cisco. Heavy on positive spin for his company and light on useful insights.

    Discover David Allen's powerful productivity principles and vastly increase your ability to work better, not harder - every day. He asks listeners what's holding them back and shows how all of us can be "ready for anything" - with a clear mind, a clear deck, and clear intentions. This is the perfect audiobook for anyone wanting to work and live at his or her very best.

    Jeff says: "Good follow-up to"
    "The principles behind the method"
    Overall

    This book is a collection of essays written about the principles behind David Allen's personal organization system. It's worth going into them but the listener should probably listen to his other book "Getting Things Done" before listening to this one.

    The Google Story is the definitive account of the populist media company powered by the world's most advanced technology that in a few short years has revolutionized access to information about everything for everybody everywhere.

    Roger Smith says: "Very Good"
    "A good source of informaiton on Google"
    Overall

    The authors did a competent job of presenting how Google rose to be the company it is today and where it is heading. However, there seems to be a strong bias in the way the story was told. The authors put the Google founders on a pedestal, interpreting events in such a way as to paint them as extraordinarily brillant forces of good, changing the rules of business, pervailing against vulture capitalists, greedy investment bankers and the evil Microsoft, and generally making the world a better place for mankind. Nevertheless, a good source of information for those interested in Google.

    This fresh and original work illuminates such key principles as karma (what we do does matter), rebirth (every moment is an opportunity to start afresh), letting go (simplifying our lives by clarifying our hearts and minds), as well as conscious living and dying, and Dzogchen, the ultimate, mystical teaching of Tibet.

    Deborah says: "Wonderful guidance!"
    "A basic introduction to Buddhism"
    Overall

    Lama Surya Das describes the basic teachings of Buddhism, covering the four noble truths and the eightfold path. He focused on the "what" but does not touch sufficiently on the "why" and "how". For instance, he says "walk like the Buddha, talk like the Buddha" but leaves the listener wondering how a Buddha would walk and talk.

    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"
    "This system works"
    Overall

    This book gives easy to follow, step-by-step instructions on David Allen's task organizing system. I implemented the system and find that it works really well. Learning this system does require a little bit of effort and discipline but I think it was worth it. I recommend this for anyone who is serious about getting organized and staying on top of things.
