    What I love most about this program is how clearly the narrator pronounces the German. Extremely helpful for someone who does not speak the language.

    In a radical break with the past, information now flows like water, and we must learn how to tap into its stream. Individuals and companies can no longer rely on the stocks of knowledge that theyve carefully built up and stored away. Information now flows like water, and we must learn how to tap into the stream.

    "Uninspiring"
    Overall

    This book is a bit wordy and the narrator, who has a fabulous voice and is easy to listen to, seems more suited to non-fiction. For a non-fiction book, I want just-the-facts-maham and the storytelling voice of the author was a distraction. The topic is an important one and I was hoping for something more succinct, direct, and at a faster pace.

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Dan Heath, Chip Heath

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.
