    There was a time, not so very long ago, when perfectly rational people ran the Republican Party. So how did the party of Lincoln become the party of lunatics? That is what this book aims to answer. Fear not, the Dems come in for their share of tough talk - they are zombies, a party of the living dead. Mike Lofgren came to Washington in the early eighties - those halcyon, post-Nixonian glory days - for what he imagined would be a short stint on Capitol Hill.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Party Is Over again? Why?

    It explains, in detail, why we only have one political party disguised as two in this country.


    If you could give The Party Is Over a new subtitle, what would it be?

    There is No Difference.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great listen for anyone who still believes that there is still a fundamental difference between Democrats and Republicans. Both parties are betrothed to big corporate interests and their lobbyists (not to mention the world banking oligarchs who control the Federal Reserve), both favor big government in one form or another, and both have sold out to the American people. Politics in America has become a big football game, and the fans in the stands are paying the price. Problem is, no matter who has the ball, we all lose. It's far past time for a third party.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to You Can't Fillet a Nibble... It's the Catch That Counts the most enjoyable?

    Gary Coxe puts the sales process in a positive and practical light. This is not a book of "rah rah feel good" cliches, but a step-by-step guide for dealing with the ups and downs experienced by anyone who has ever worked in a commission-based field. Gary discusses how to effectively navigate the emotional rollercoaster that is sales, and make it a much smoother ride.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The key point of the book resonated best - we can't let our emotions drive our drive to resolve to succeed in business or life. It's so easy to get excited by a nibble, and just as easy to feel disparaged when the nibble doesn't convert to a catch. Gary cites example after example of why it's important for a sales person to keep their emotions in check, and not write stories in our head when we don't know the facts. I also enjoyed his take on persistence vs passiveness, and why persistence, even with its negative short-term side effects, always wins out long-term.


    What does Gary Coxe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have subscribed to Gary Coxe's daily videos for some time, so I knew I would enjoy hearing him read his book. He brings an enthusiasm and sincerity to the audiobook version that I'm not sure I would have enjoyed by just reading the hard copy, although I do recommend having the written version for reference.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Gary's personal story of starting a highly-successful business as a teenager, losing it all and starting over again is a true lesson in the power of persistence. Many people would have given after such a downfall, but this author never gave up on himself and what he could accomplish with the right mindset, which makes the information he offers in the book more than credible.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must-listen if you want to improve your people skills and develop an effective strategy to move ahead in business and in life.
