  • Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 53 mins)

    Story

    A practical approach to creating wealth-based on the established principles of ancient Jewish wisdom-made accessible to people of all backgrounds. The ups and downs of the economy prove Rabbi Daniel Lapin's famous principle that the more things change, the more we need to depend upon the things that never change. There's no better source for both practical and spiritual financial wisdom than the time-tested knowledge found in the ancient Jewish faith and its culture.

    Overall

    Great book if you are at least inclined to think that money and profits are not evil. If you think that trying to earn more and accumulate wealth is exploitation you'll hate how this book challenges your erroneous mindset.

    Author does a great job of discussing the purpose of business and money as helping others via volumtary exchange. His insight and interpretation of ancient biblical stories was fascinating to someone who was raised Christian and had heard many of them before but never with this level of historical analysis and
    linguistic study.

    The reader was good but SLOW! I ended up listening to half the book at 1.5 or even 2x speed. He does "gulp" air in the beginning as one reviewer said but either he stopped or I stopped hearing it.

    The negatives are the minor issues with narration and the author would go on fairly long tangents but he would ultimately tie it back into the story.

  • No, They Can't: Why Government Fails - But Individuals Succeed

    Story

    The government is not a neutral arbiter of truth. It never has been. It never will be. Doubt everything. John Stossel does. A self-described skeptic, he has dismantled society's sacred cows with unerring common sense. Now he debunks the most sacred of them all: our intuition and belief that government can solve our problems. In No, They Can't, the New York Times best-selling author and Fox News commentator insists that we discard that idea of the "perfect" government - left or right - and retrain our brain to look only at the facts, to rethink our lives as independent individuals - and fast.

    Where does No, They Can't rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top third. Nothing really earth-shatteringly new in the book but he delivers the material in a nice package to see the contrast between top-down planners and the bottom-up liberty perspective.


    What did you like best about this story?

    He sticks with a theme of intuition tells us 'X' but reality tells me 'Y' that he uses to debunk the planners/statists/socialists theories.


    What about John Stossel’s performance did you like?

    Nice even delivery with enough emphasis or emotion to show he is into the subject but not distracting.

  • Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School

    Most of us have no idea what's really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know - such as the brain's need for physical activity to work at its best. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget - and so important to repeat new information? Is it true that men and women have different brains?

    Would you listen to Brain Rules again? Why?

    Yes. I need to take notes on the rules and his ideas for better performance.


    What about John J. Medina’s performance did you like?

    Very enthusiastic performance. His voice would get so high it would crack not so often or so bad that is was annoying...it was sort of endearing actually.


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

    No. I listened to each rule at a time. It is more involved so I would read it while walking my dog or cleaning up...can't do it while working on something (that's one of the brain rules!!!)


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the book. Great stories help convey the dryer facts - it is amazing how much we have learned about the brain as a result of strokes and odd brain trauma!!!

    A masterful biography of the U.S. Army in the European Theater of Operations during World War II, Citizen Soldiers provides a compelling account of the extraordinary stories of ordinary men in their fight for democracy. From the high command on down to the enlisted men, Stephen E. Ambrose draws on hundreds of interviews and oral histories from men on both sides who were there.

    Jeremy says: "Required reading, excellent narration"

    Overall

    This book conveys the tragedy of war for all. As a combat vet of Iraq I feel that my tour was a walk in the park compared to WWII. All citizens should read this book to help them understand the price that was paid to defeat the nazis.

    The narrator also does an excellent job, his various accents help the flow of the book and his delivery, tempo, and tone were perfect.
