  • Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 9 mins)
    • By Chip Heath, Dan Heath
    • Narrated By Kaleo Griffith

    In Decisive, the Heaths, based on an exhaustive study of the decision-making literature, introduce a four-step process designed to counteract these biases. Written in an engaging and compulsively listenable style, Decisive takes readers on an unforgettable journey, from a rock star’s ingenious decision-making trick to a CEO’s disastrous acquisition, to a single question that can often resolve thorny personal decisions.

    G. House Sr. says: "Solid Wothwhile Advice - get you WRAP on"
    "Great Ideas"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Once upon a time our OM (Owner & Manager) team occasionally struggled with decisions. OM meetings would rely on some information, recent emotions, incomplete research and un-brainstormed ideas. While many great things were accomplished due to the talent of the team, there were also some things that didn't work out as well.

    One day the team decided to read DECISIVE by Dan & Chip Heath.

    Because of that they learned the 4 steps of a better decision making process that quickly became a part of their language.

    Because of that they were able to better coach their teams on how to make better decisions in their daily activities which increased their efficiency and success.

    Until finally the whole organization was able to consistently make better complex decisions to achieve greatnesses and increased profitability.

  • Top Brain, Bottom Brain: Surprising Insights Into How You Think

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 43 mins)
    • By Stephen Kosslyn, G. Wayne Miller
    • Narrated By Christopher Hurt

    For the past 50 years, popular culture has led us to believe in the left brain vs. right brain theory of personality types. It would be an illuminating theory if it did not have one major drawback: It is simply not supported by science. In contrast, the Top Brain, Bottom Brain theory is based on solid research that has stayed within the confines of labs all over the world—until now.

    Neuron says: "Not convinced"
    "Great Read - Will be required reading for my team"
    Would you listen to Top Brain, Bottom Brain again? Why?

    I am planning to listen again because it offers excellent perspective in hiring employees. Everyone knows about the theory of right brain versus left brain - this book adds a new dimension that will improve teamwork and hiring success.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Top Brain, Bottom Brain?

    The four examples of their theory in action was great. It showed the ways each type react when put in the same situations.

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

    Nope - great voice and tone.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Top & Bottom - the other halves of the brain.

    Any additional comments?

    Great read! Also, I had a question about the PDF so I emailed their website. One of the authors was back in touch with me within 6 hours. Thank you for their customer service!

    Would you listen to Spy the Lie again? Why?

    I already have listened three times, there is a lot of information to soak in.

    What did you learn from Spy the Lie that you would use in your daily life?

    It is amazing how you truly can tilt the odds in your favor when trying to determine the truth.
