I first recall Betty White as Suzanne Niven in the "Mary Tyler Moore" show. Countless interviews and appearances later It is no wonder to me why Betty White is the beloved icon she is.
What I enjoyed most about "If you ask me" was that Betty narrated it herself and no one could have done a better job. In her own words and voice you get the opportunity to learn of this extraordinary woman and her life. The depth of her love and relationship with her late Husband Alan, her dedication to and love for animals, and the relationships with her many co-stars.
The only thing exposed here is Betty's care for others, her conscious remaking of her image into what she is today, and her love and respect for those she has spent so many years working with.
Intriguing and interesting. Just enough science to make the story seem plausible. I though "The martian" was a great listen. Good writing supported by a solid performance.
I enjoyed listening to the Five Dysfunctions of a team and would happily recommend it to anyone who must work in around or on a team. the examples are clear and the characters relatable. I was able to use some of the techniques the very next day.
The jury has decided Jodi Arias is guilty of the murder of Travis Alexander. The background of Jodi and Travis's relationship, Jodi's previous relationships and her ever evolving story was interesting. the descriptions of the trial were fascinating.
All this being said, within minutes of starting the book the total bias to one side became evident and carried through to the last. Ms. Velez-Mitchell seemed to spend the entire book telling me why her opinion was the only correct one rather than just conveying what would have otherwise been a compelling story
I wont be reading her other book. On the other hand, Elizabeth Whites performance was very good.
I enjoyed listening to the story of "Mr. Danza". Skepticism gave way as the stories of the student, teachers and Tony's experience progressed. Tony's drive and dedication shone through as did the apparent results.
An interesting insight into people who care in a system that sometimes seems not to.
A light interesting listen that was worth the time.
A man of amazing insight into people and motivations. A brilliant tactician, A ruler who understood how to rule not just minds, but hearts. I was amazed to learn of the many things accomplished by Genghis Khan that were truly ahead of his time and affected the world well into the centuries following.
Genghis Khan may have ruled centuries ago, but the effects of his reign remained for years and in some ways affect us still.
This was the first biography I have listened to in some time that held me for those highly anticipated "sit in the driveway until this part is over" minutes
Read the book, listened to the audio book and set out to practice using the methods Josh described.
Less then 20 hours later I was making acceptable hand cut dovetails.
Just over 20 hours later I was coding to the just over basic level I needed to accomplish a specific task..
Practical explanations of practical methodologies that worked. Since reading the book I have learned a new skill I wanted, Learned one I needed and learned one i Promptly abandoned.
If you want to save yourself some time and learn more about skills and yourself this book is a must read.
I do have to agree with some of the folks that gave this book poor reviews. You can save even more time by only reading the first few chapters that explain the method and thought processes. Over half the content is filler that without the hard copy will only make some sense.
All Quiet on the Western Front is a classic tale made even better by Frank Muller's performance. The pain, the joy, and the misery I felt when reading the book were all brought back by this listen. Time and a credit well spent.
Lively consistent and familiar characters fill this book. An interesting story line that seems to be almost constantly changing directions.
This is the first title in some time that warranted several extra "driveway minutes" because the action taking place simply could not have waited until my next trip out.
topping off the great story was superb narration with well voiced characters. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone, Dean Koontz fan or not.
In in depth look from an insider who desperately worked to become an outsider. A well funded "church" using children as slave labor and treating devotees as servants is a cult.
Forced to be outsiders in their own towns, and strangers to their own families, yet Scientology thrives. Every parent should read this book and make sure their children read it too.
All of my great teachers were able to show me the importance of the seemingly insignificant in some dramatic style. Walter Lewin is a master of dramatic presentation. After listening to "for the love of physics", twice, I found myself watching hours and hours of his lectures and demonstrations on the web.
the thoughts and writing are engaging and lively and I will never look at rainbows the same way. Because of this book I now know how to look for rainbows as well.
Thank you Professor Lewin.
Mr. Cassella's narration is very good, warm and well paced.
