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

    Yes, absolutely. It gets your full attention and makes you see and think about where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Three Feet from Gold?

    The fact that the most successful people are the ones that are the most willing to share. That people in the middle are the ones that are full of EGO and do not have time for anyone but themselves.


    What does Dan John Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It feels like he is talking to you and telling you his own story. I find it easier to focus and listen to what he has to say.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Three Feet from Gold?

    Share my experience and my profit with others, believe in myself, climb safe but climb to the top, keeping the right people and the right media around me, start going through my personal inventory!


    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook has opened my eyes and I am already planning on listening to it again. I was suffocating my self with to much thinking. It brought my thoughts from negative to possitive and made me see possibilities instead of problems.

    In the latest novel from the number-one New York Times best-selling author, four women bound by obligation and opportunity struggle to become a family. With startling tenderness and laugh-out-loud humor, Jennifer Weiner once again takes listeners into the heart of women's lives in an unforgettable, timely tale that interweaves themes of class and entitlement, surrogacy and donorship, the rights of a parent, and the measure of motherhood.

    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The Winter Sea was different than I had thought when I downloaded my Unabridged version. I don't like the narrator. Especially when she starts to speak Irish with a strong accent so you can't understand a word she is saying.

    Well I was disapointed and gave up listening.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Susanna Kearsley again?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Winter Sea?

    Don't know. I gave up listening.


    Any additional comments?

    No.
