I love AUDIBLE! I never get mad at traffic jams and can listen to many different books, despite my short time.

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    Great book! I learned about keystone habit shift, transforming a habit, why habit is impotant, how to fight the habit, look for cues for a habbit to enter and whow they influence behavior, habit loops, rewards, cravings, Phelp's Mental visualization, self discipline and will power, goals settings, ...
    I enjoyed it a lot. Three days and it was gone.
    I looked at my life-- my mistakes and the wright doings. And i had to agree with the author. Habits matter more than we know.

    In 2013, Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt published 1.5 million words and made their full-time livings as indie authors. In Write. Publish. Repeat., they tell you how exactly how they did it: how they created over 15 independent franchises across 50+ published works, how they turned their art into a logical, sustainable business, and how any independent author can do the same to build a sustainable, profitable career with their writing.

    Story

    "Write. Publish. Repeat." is a good book about writing that covers most topics about the work and has a good length (a little bit more than 10 hours). I had never heard about the authors, and, really, after their emphasis in their work, It killed my curiosity.
    The message from this book is simple: write a lot, publish and restart writing. Do this process over and over again and maybe you will earn a little bit of money from writing.
    It is a huge contrast between the last book I've listened "The Millionaire Messenger" by Brendon Burchard, where he says that everyone is an expert and can make a LOT of money from it.
    "Write. Publish. Repeat." is more down to earth and credible.

    In The Millionaire Messenger, Brendon Burchard pulls back the curtains on the once-secretive "expert industry" and shows how to become an influential and highly paid advice expert through websites, books, speeches, seminars, coaching, consulting, and online programs. Blessed to receive life's golden ticket - a second chance - after surviving a dramatic car accident, Burchard has dedicated his life to helping others find their voice, live more fully, and follow their dreams. By following his 10-step program, average, ordinary people can learn to become experts in anything they choose.

    I did not know Bredon Burchard. But after I heard his story, that he gained millions of dollars, and that everyone can be rich and can be truly an expert, I was skeptical. So I google his name, and, yes, he is a best seller author, the gives interviews to many newspapers... How come?
    Well, manly he is a good guy. When he is speaking, he seems like a friend, manifests his mistakes and personal tragedies, and his book is like a fast paced chitchat (neither with enough substance).
    Really, The Millionaire Messenger is like "THE SECRET"-- you just have to believe (at least the writer believed and succeeded).

    In 2008, Howard Schultz, the president and chairman of Starbucks, made the unprecedented decision to return as CEO, eight years after he stepped down from daily oversight of the company to become chairman. Concerned that Starbucks had lost its way, Schultz was determined to help it return to its core values and restore not only its financial health, but also its soul.

    Something scary is happening to boys today. From kindergarten to college, they are less resilient and less ambitious than they were a mere 20 years ago. Fully one-third of men ages 22 to 34 are still living at home with their parents, about a 100 percent increase in the past 20 years. Boys nationwide are increasingly dropping out of school; fewer are going to college. Family physician and research psychologist Dr. Leonard Sax presents practical solutions.

    This book is an eye opener, even though I did not agree with the author 100%. Boys Adrift is an easy read and full of information. Shocked me to know about the motives why boys do not become great men, and specially about the endocrine disruptors in plastics, something that I was not aware.
    Go ahead and listen to this book. You won't regret it.

    We are stuck, stymied, frustrated. But it needn't be this way. There is a formula for success that's been followed by the icons of history - from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs - a formula that let them turn obstacles into opportunities. Faced with impossible situations, they found the astounding triumphs we all seek.

    Some minutes within the story I thought I was reading a Robert Greene's book, because there were many great characters from the past, with the same paced rhythm. In the end Ryan Holiday explains that Robert Greene is his mentor and it all made sense.
    Overall, it is a good book. I don't think it is practical one, but the author says it is.
    I didn't give it a five star because the last hour and a half it is a podcast between the author and Tim Ferris, the author of 4 hour workweek.
    I am eager to listen to Ryan Holiday next book.

    I bought this book three months ago but I was not in a mood to listen to it. When I finally grabbed it, was sorry I didn't listen right away because it is an EXCELLENT book! I think REDIRECT is one of the greatest psychology books out there. If Carol Dweck's "Mindset" is the tip of the Iceberg, Redirect is the rest of the body from the same Iceberg.
    Listen to it! I bet you will like it.

    At the height of his fame Thomas Alva Edison was hailed as “the Napoleon of invention” and blazed in the public imagination as a virtual demigod. Newspapers proclaimed his genius in glowing personal profiles and quipped that “the doctor has been called” because the great man “has not invented anything since breakfast.” But Edison's greatest invention may have been his own celebrity.

    Richard Daniel says: "Fast paced account of Edison"

    I like biographies and I longed for a Thomas Alva Edison's. This book is well researched and well written, but something is missing: a good picture of Edison, a palpable one, like Roosevelt's or Tesla's. It left me with a goshtlike image of a great man.

    In this groundbreaking work, Tim Harford shows us a new and inspiring approach to solving the most pressing problems in our lives. Harford argues that today’s challenges simply cannot be tackled with ready-made solutions and expert opinions; the world has become far too unpredictable and profoundly complex. Instead, we must adapt. Deftly weaving together psychology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, physics, and economics, along with compelling stories of hard-won lessons learned in the field, Harford makes a passionate case for the importance of adaptive trial-and-error....
