    Picasso famously said, "Everything you can imagine is real." Meet, and be inspired by, Pablo Picasso; world-famous artist and pioneer of the Cubist movement, as he tells his own amazing story. BioViews are short biographical narratives, similar to interviews. These inspirational stories from The Amazing People Club provide a new way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions and changed our world.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you're already familiar with Picasso's work and want to learn about his sex life and relationships, this is a fun, short listen. I was hoping to learn more about his art and professional life.


    Was Meet Pablo Picasso worth the listening time?

    Luckily, it was short.

    How to Read a Book, first published in 1940, is the best and most successful guide to reading comprehension for the general reader. Now it has been completely rewritten and updated.

    The author drones on and on about every minute detail related to every single aspect of reading a book. I couldn't finish it.

    Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

    What did you like best about Your Brain at Work? What did you like least?

    I read this book for the information, not to be entertained. The knowledge of how our brains work is extremely valuable and potentially life changing. Unfortunately, the author chose to bury that information in lengthy descriptions of all of the physiological and chemical processes that determine how brains work, as well as in vignettes that provided examples.The stories actually would have been helpful if they were shorter.The scientific stuff should have been moved to an appendix. This would have been an awesome book if it was half as long.


    What didn’t you like about Bob Walter’s performance?

    The narrator's tone was dramatic and serious. His voice was better suited to Masterpiece Theater than to the subject matter at hand.


    Was Your Brain at Work worth the listening time?

    Sort of. I'll probably have to buy the hard copy and highlight the key points so I can refer back to them and keep them fresh in my mind.
