    The day for change is today and it's simpler than you realize. Most people sleepwalk through day-to-day life, passively letting time slip away. Unfortunately, the only thing that can usually wake people up to the intensity of life is impending death. But what if it didn't have to be that way? 20,000 Days presents breathtakingly simple strategies and concepts that, once applied, will enable readers to be 100 percent present and intentional with every passing minute of every day for the rest of their lives.

    Perspective is a powerful thing. Andy Andrews has spent the past five years doing a double take at every white-haired old man he sees, hoping to have just one more conversation with the person to whom he owes his life. Through a chance encounter at a local bookstore, Andy is reunited with the man who changed everything for him - Jones, also known as “The Noticer.”

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Noticer Returns to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Andy brings the audio book to life.


    What other book might you compare The Noticer Returns to and why?

    The Noticer...for obvious reasons. The Bible...for me, because Jones is a lot like Jesus if he came back and interacted with people in trouble.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole story moves to a great conclusion that if I shared would ruin some of the book but I love how it ends.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could have but I like to listen in the car and sporadically throughout the day.


    Any additional comments?

    Andy is a great author and story teller. It is nice to be entertained and at the same time add value of sound principles to your life by reading his books.

    When the Navy sends their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL Team Six—a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes listeners deep inside the world of Navy SEALs and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL - the toughest and longest military training in the world.

    This is the legend of Hafid, a camel boy 2,000 years ago, and his burning desire to improve his lowly position in life, as told to his apprentice Erasmus. Hafid relates the story of how he became known as the Greatest Salesman in the World. His success lies in the wisdom of ten leather scrolls passed down to him from his master, Pathros.

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

    Yes! Great story line and great content.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how Og tied the storyline into the valuable concepts of the scrolls.


    What three words best describe Og Mandino’s performance?

    Hard to follow.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending.


    Any additional comments?

    Since I only had three words to describe Og's performance reading, I want to elaborate. He was kind of hard to follow and the vocabulary of the story didn't flow but it is WELL worth your time to overlook those small problems to gain the wisdom OG provides in this book!

  • The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry

    The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness. Jon Ronson's exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world's top neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues.

    Robert says: "Interesting but wandering"
    "Interesting book but could have been better."

    Story
    If you could sum up The Psychopath Test in three words, what would they be?

    Good not great.


    Have you listened to any of Jon Ronson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I liked Jon's audio performance. Very easy to listen too.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It is very eye opening when he gets to talking about psychopaths and Robert Hare's criteria.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book but it could have been much better. It kind of wandered for me. From the title of the book, I thought I would hear more about psychopathy. I like how Jon took you on the journey of his investigation. However I wished he focused more on psychopaths and not on all psycholigical disorders. It was a good read but really made me want to read more about Robert Hare's criteria and what his thoughts were.
