    Tim Sanders, Chief Solutions Officer at Yahoo!, puts forth a wildly original idea: It pays to be nice. Sanders shows how being a "lovecat" will help you accomplish your goals, both in and out of the office.

    Overall

    The author played it safe and was far too wordy - he consistently qualified his strong statements. Go hug someone... if they want it... if it makes sense... if you've worked them up to it...
    Yes there are many solid things in here. There are many important things we should be doing when working with others.
    However there other audiobooks in Audible better suited to fulfilling business/self-improvement.

    Retired police captain Waverly Underhill and his sidekick, Doctor Scofield, uncover the truth in a story of greed and suspense. Heard on public radio, this is a contemporary tale in the classic tradition of The Shadow, with a full cast, original music, and sound effects.

    Overall

    I've heard many Cape Cod's over the years. Some are fantastic. The series as a whole is great. Underhill's should be listened to together and do have a loose order.
    Good for short listening, but maybe too complex for heavy commute traffic. Not quite binaural but have basic sound effects and depth.

  • Apocalypse Crucible: Left Behind Military Volume 2

    Danger and personal crisis on land, sea, and in the air combine with a level of spiritual warfare that is unparalleled in a Christian book. Crucible is a thriller that runs side by side with the phenomenal Left Behind series that has sold in excess of 55 million copies.

    Overall

    I was more impatient to finish this book and actually found myself fast-forwarding a few sections. I loved the first book and think the storyline is great.
    The author is writing about things he clearly doesn't understand, such as blended families. So sometimes he gets into directions that don't work or fails to arrive to the natural conclusion. You could say some of it is necessary for his story line timing but other times it's bad writing.
    Author keeps putting lengthy flash-backs smack in front of key story line events in order to develop characters.
    Some characters repeatedly admonish themselves word-for-word the same way. This poor writing is aggravating.
    I clearly get the feeling 'Left Behind' established a recipe and this series is simply trying to cash-in on that recipe.
