  • Ready Player One

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 46 mins)

    (9370)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    At 24 years of age, U.S. Army Ranger Sean Parnell was named commander of a forty-man elite infantry platoon - a unit that came to be known as the Outlaws - and was tasked with rooting out Pakistan-based insurgents from a mountain valley along Afghanistan's eastern frontier. Parnell and his men assumed they would be facing a ragtag bunch of civilians, but in May 2006 what started out as a routine patrol through the lower mountains of the Hindu Kush became a brutal ambush.

  • High Altitude Leadership: What the World's Most Forbidding Peaks Teach Us About Success

    Leadership is often a risky, lonely role possessing nearly unbearable lows and fleeting highs. Despite this emotionally and intellectually draining roller coaster, a handful of leaders deliver stunning results, with great consistency. They push past current leadership trends in order to achieve the most extremely challenging goals. They don't fall prey to the platitudes or cliches we see so often see in leadership theory.

    What made the experience of listening to High Altitude Leadership the most enjoyable?

    Why are you such a risk taker in some parts of your life and a wimp in others?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of High Altitude Leadership?

    Writing a business plan, on toilet paper, while cooped up in a tent on Denali.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Do you want to die fast or slow?


    Any additional comments?

    Chris does a great job of boiling down behavioral issues that you will see all around you - even in the mirror - that are killing you and your organization. The question is whether you are going to do anything about them?

  • Trident K9 Warriors: My Tale From the Training Ground to the Battlefield with Elite Navy SEAL Canines

    As a SEAL on combat deployment in Iraq, Mike Ritland saw a military working dog in action and instantly knew he found his true calling. While the SEAL teams had used dogs in the past, they never had dogs trained specifically by SEALs, for SEALs. To fill this void, Ritland started his own company after he retired, training and supplying dogs for the West Coast SEAL teams. He knew that less than 1% of all working dogs had what it takes to contribute to the success of our nation’s elite combat units. He searched the globe for animals who fit this specific profile.

    Where does Trident K9 Warriors rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Expert information.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Trident K9 Warriors?

    The dog stories: Nemo, Rocket, Poncho - all of them.


    What three words best describe Jeff Gurner’s performance?

    Steady, a little monotone.


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

    Sort of, I don't really listen like that.


    Any additional comments?

    This book will help you understand your dog better. The author gets it. His experience training top working dogs to integrate with top teams is a testament to professionalism. Pet owners can do a little vicarious living in the stories and take away tips to enhance their own human / canine relationships.
