    Personal accountability is the secret weapon of every successful sales professional. It is the secret weapon of Where Winners Live co-author Dave Porter, who became the owner and CEO of Baystate Financial Services at age 35 and grew it into a $100-million-a-year business over the next 15 years. It is the secret weapon of Where Winners Live co-author Linda Galindo, who transformed herself from the self-proclaimed Queen of Victims into an entrepreneur, business coach, consultant and speaker whose typical audience numbers 500 or more.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is definitely written for sales professionals, especially those in Financial Services and, even more specifically, Financial Advisors.


    Has Where Winners Live turned you off from other books in this genre?

    A bit


    What didn’t you like about Michael Butler Murray’s performance?

    Not really sure whether it was his performance or just the content


    What character would you cut from Where Winners Live?

    All


    Any additional comments?

    The basic concept of the book was decent but it just drug on far too long. Additionally, it got really preachy and was narrowly focused on a specific industry with little to no mention of accommodation of other industries.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! While I'm not an Apple Fanboy, the insight into Steve Jobs and the process by which Apple was built was very insightful and it was well written such that it kept my attention, even though it was really long.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jobs


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

    Not really sure.


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

    How a bunch of geeks changed the world
