    The audio that shows how to get the job done and deliver results...whether you're running an entire company or in your first management job. Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan, who Jack Welch calls "a great practitioner and an insightful theorist," collaborate on a "compelling business story of 'how to get it done.'"

    I found the title useful. The rest of the book was not.

  • Made to Stick

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better The Second Time"
    "It's the best"
    Overall

    This is the most useful, most readable book about communications I've ever read.
    And I've read lots.
    As an executive coach, most of what I do is listen. The art in this work is, when I say something, to have it connect with both a client's head and heart in a way that sticks.
    The Heath brothers have taught me why I succeed when it works, and why I fail when it doesn't.
    Finally, I'm cheap, yet I've given away 2 dozen copies of this book.

  • Mean Genes

    Short, sassy, and bold, Mean Genes reveals that our struggles for self-improvement are, in fact, battles against our own genes - genes that helped our distant ancestors flourish, but are selfish and out of place in the modern world.

    Paul says: "Entertaining and Informative"
    "The most interesting ever"
    Overall

    Mean Genes was a fascinating listen. I learned lots, and enjoyed every second.

    Anthony Robbins and John Gray, renowned for their unrivaled communication skills and profound understanding of human nature, have come together in a fascinating and informative discussion on the subtle differences between men and women - and how those differences impact your relationships - with profound insights and strategies for making measurable improvements in the quality of your relationships now.

    "Five stars for guys"
    Overall

    Of everything I've gotten from Audible, this one is my favorite. The gender communication stuff is great for guys, probably not PC for women. Gray's advice is so pragmatic!
    But the best part is the last 10 minutes or so, after Robbins has "ended" the interview. Very touching stories about the murder of Gray's father and his brother's suicide. That part really communicates why he's doing the work he does.

    With his usual incisiveness, Os Guinness goes past your superficial understanding to the very heart of what calling means. Far bigger than you job, deeper than your personal accomplishments, higher that you wildest ideas of self-fulfillment, calling addresses the very essence of your existence.

    Eric says: "A very good companion to the book ..."
    "Waste of Time"
    Overall

    Unless you're a CHRISTIAN (not merely Christian), I think you'll find this a waste of your time. Given that the dominant review is five stars, my view is clearly in the minority.

  • Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus: The Classic Guide to Understanding the Opposite Sex

    Why is it so difficult for men and women to get along? In this phenomenally popular and effective work, Dr. John Gray illustrates how differences in communication styles, behavior, and emotional needs can drive the two sexes apart, and offers ways to help keep them together.

    Lenna says: "May I suggest..."
    "Must reading for guys"
    Overall

    I read this book when it was first published. Was that 25 years ago? Whatever, after these many additional years with and around women, the book makes so much more sense now. I should have read it every year!
