Absolutely. I own a small business and this book has me looking for "inefficiencies" that I can use. I liked the movie, and the book gave me a completely different angle. There are a lot more explanations for why things happened.
Scott Brick performed Moneyball very well. The narration flows naturally and the voice makes sense with the book.
What are you paying too much for?
Yes. Father G reading his story adds so much. He doesn't only believe, he lives it.
Knowing that people like Father G exist. He epitomizes the best of humanity. He never comes across as pushy or preachy, but still speaks the truth as he sees it. I
Father G is the man. His loving portrayal of the 'homies' is probably the only real respect most of them will get in this life.
Yes. I got through it so fast I felt like I wanted more. I would love to hear a Father G story every morning on my way to work.
Listen to it when you need your faith in humanity restored.
My job as a fitness coach is to change lives. There are so many helpful stories in Switch that I found myself setting my alarm 30 minutes early just so I could listen to more before starting the day.
The conceit of a rider and elephant.
I drive an hour per day. Listening allowed me to get through the book quickly.
Little man on a big elephant
This is the first book I started over as soon as I finished. If you are trying to make difficult changes in your life, switch has an example that may help.
Matterhorn is one of the better audiobooks. Bronson Pinchot's narration drew me in and captures the mood without being overdramatic. The story is not for the faint of heart.
Black Hawk Down has the same gritty, honest portrayal of combat, and the bureaucratic politics that affect it.
Waino definitely stands out, but Marlantes creates a number of characters you care about and some you never get to know.
Matterhorn helped me understand my dad, who was a combat marine in Vietnam and reread the book dozens of times.
The narrator (Martin Jarvis) does such a great job with this I was disappointed when it ended. Jarvis performs the different voices brilliantly.
The Screwtape letters is the nearest comparison due to the subject matter. This one comes from a decidedly more humanist viewpoint.
I loved the description of the incorrectly printed bibles. I'm trying to work the "extra" verses into a Sunday School lesson.
The characters are good, but the overall telling of the story is the star.
I also recommend Jarvis's tellings of P.G. Wodehouse.
