I have to say, this is one of the best books I have listened to since I started with Audible. The writer presents information that I always suspected but couldn't nail down. He's current, articulate and must lead a very interesting life. Buying a book ( print or audio) is never hard but this author delivered about 200% value. The content speaks for itself. If you haven't read or listened to this book, give it some serious thought. You will NOT be disappointed! Great Job Ryan! Have you written anything else?
I was a bit surprised when I read this book. It was my first Ben Bova story and I was expecting something a little better. Right from the start, I found that the story wasn't very descriptive. The dialog was weak in my opinion and I had hope the author would ad more to the scenes. If I am missing something, then feel free to recommend another book of his.
I am sorry I bought this audio book and wished I hadn't. Firstly, the narration is aweful..the fellow reading/writing it has a poor command of the english language and is hard to listen to. He hesitates at the wrong time and even his jokes are not funny. I don't think the author took this publication as serious.
In my copy of the audio book, there is a background hum through the whole presentation. As he narrates, you can hear when he shuts the recording off. Not very professional.
In terms of the website addresses he describes, I found 2 that were non-existent.
In many areas, the author rambles on about basic webpage creation that has nothing to do with the subject and simply is filling up space.
This book is embarrassing for Audible.com . They should consider removing.
My 2 cents
This was a great book, loved the discussions on baseball, odds and the many topics the author covers. Its a very hard book to describe though. I never got bored and every chapter offered me something new and fresh. Be a great book for anyone in marketing or SEO. I would recommend it. Worth the money.
I loved this book! I have been buying MAKER magazine and getting to know more and more about the DIY community. Firstly, the narration is probably the best I have heard on Audible. Clear, easy to listen to and almost addicting. The examples, the stories and the common sense that the author dishes out is pretty cool. Its very easy to "Get" what he is saying and its one of those books that makes you want to read/listen the next chapter and not put it down. I listened to this book in 3 days and I put it at the top of the list of books i have purchased from Audible.
This story was pretty impressive and made one think. What he experienced after dying certainly was different from what others experienced. Being a Dr, you get the inside track on the medical side of things. Its well written and always interesting. Great narration and easy to listen to. Worth buying in my opinion.
I loved this book and how it was presented. There was some great information and Derek makes it very clear how things worked or didn't. His honest approach but also entertaining approach made me want to read it again. This is one of those authors who I would follow and by every book he comes out with. I put him up in the SETH GODIN level and think he has alot to offer. Again, a fantastic read, very clear and easy to listen to. And I had a great laugh as well. He's pretty funny.
I enjoyed this book and loved how the author presented the concept of the Big Think. It was a book I listened to while walking every night trying to get in shape. It seemed every 20 ft I was telling myself, "hey, hes right on the money on that." I also liked the examples given. Nothing was to difficult. Lastly, I found teh book was interesting and exciting to read the whol eway through. No dips or chapters that sucked...the whole thing was very fluid.
