    Don't think you have what it takes to run a business? It's time to reconsider. Carrie Wilkerson offers the opportunity to live life on your terms. Want to start your workday with e-mail and coffee on the back patio? Want the flexibility of joining your fourth grader on an all-day field trip? Are you ready to take that vacation you’ve been planning for years? Then you have a choice to make, and The Barefoot Executive will help jump-start your transition. You’ll learn: Your “why.” The most important question.

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

    I don't know, it was pretty boring. Maybe people who need this type of motivational fluff as opposed to any actual substantive suggestions/blue prints on how to take steps towards self employment.


    What was most disappointing about Carrie Wilkerson’s story?

    It's boring, first off. I couldn't get through the whole thing. And I prefer a bit more substance, I kept thinking, "Get to the point already!".


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Carrie Wilkerson?

    No one, this just wasn't a good book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and boredom


    Any additional comments?

    Can I get my credit back?

  • The Old Man and the Sea

    • UNABRIDGED (2 hrs and 30 mins)
    • By Ernest Hemingway
    • Narrated By Donald Sutherland

    The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal, a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss.

    Dave says: "Truly a Classic"
    "Just Beautiful"

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

    So moving, so elegant. This story will transport you. The simple beauty of this tale will have you in tears. Donald Sutherland does an EXCELLENT job with his narration.
