  • A Whole New Mind (Live)

    Story

    Just as we were getting used to the Information Age, Daniel Pink tells us that it is ending. With it goes our focus on charts, statistics, and linear thinking. Traditional "left-brain" activities, like logic, analysis, and repetitive production, are being turned over to robots, computers, and offshore labor. The valued skills of the 21st Century will be those of the right brain: empathy, design, synthesis, and contextual thinking.

    Joao Coelho says: "A good reminder of the book"
    "Great!"
    Overall

    Pink is as interesting a speaker as he is an author. This lecture was very interesting and takes The World is Flat to the next level. Though I didn't read A Whole New Mind, after listing to this lecture, I would be interested in hearing Pink in person.

    Story

    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Elisabeth says: "Good for an intro to the Law of Attraction"
    "I Expected More from All the Hype"
    Overall

    I also stopped listening about an hour or so into this book. To me, the basic premise of seeing the world as "half full" and thinking optimistically are words to live by. However, the notion that all those who perished in the Holocaust harbored caustic thoughts and brought about their own deaths is something that I cannot buy into. Additionally, the New Testament references didn’t add any value.

  • Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India, and Indonesia

    Story

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Kerry says: "Witty and Wonderful"
    "What an interesting journey!"
    Overall

    I am so glad I listened to this book rather than read it. With Liz narrating, I felt like I was there alongside her during this incredible journey. Liz opened my eyes to the powers of meditation. I feel like I grew as a person with her. A must read for anyone open to exploring new countries, cultures, religions, and ideas.

    Story

    Two families, who would otherwise never have come together, meet by chance at the Baltimore airport: the Donaldsons, a very American couple, and the Yazdans, Maryam's fully assimilated son and his attractive Iranian wife. Each couple is awaiting the arrival of an adopted infant daughter from Korea. After the instant babies from distant Asia are delivered, Bitsy Donaldson impulsively invites the Yazdans to celebrate.

    Everett Leiter says: "Life in transition"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I kept waiting for something to happen, but nothing materialized. The storyline was flat. The narrator, on the other hand, did a wonderful job.
