I did experience a good feel for the times when I listened to this audio book. However, the story itself was, I think, drawn out too much. As a result, I found myself fighting to stay focused on the story. I guess the story is OK, but I would not listen to it again.
Think of a serial killer with hospital access and extensive knowledge of unhealthy ways to use drugs.
The story is well told and very thorough, although I was somewhat disappointed in the narrator. I couldn't help thinking the reader was just going through the motions, reading a script rather than making an effort to bring the story alive and add depth to the characters.
I wonder if another crime may have been committed, though, when considering how long it took to bring this killer to justice.
All you might ever want to know that could happen to your body after you die must be in this book. Interesting, although not for those with a weak stomach. The author even manages to inject humor, at times, in a dry, but respectful way.
This is a very good historical account of the origins of The United States' national park system and how a huge, tragic forest fire played an instrumental role. Well researched and interesting.
This book seems to be well researched and gives an in depth view on the reasons behind snap judgements I doubt many people are aware of. The book also gives understandable, logical mental steps people can practice that can alter first impressions, including our propensity for stereotyping. An interesting book.
L. Ron Hubbard was incredibly bold to use a person's hope and faith in continued life after death to make as much money as possible. The more money a "parishioner" pays, the quicker they "cross" the bridge of immortality. The ultimate scam.....Research of the book appears very thorough and includes views of the controversial religion from both positive and negative points of view.
The story is so well told I could almost feel myself aboard the Can Do trying to cope with the relentless storm. It is difficult enough to navigate a truck through a blizzard. I know that. Trying to navigate a relatively small boat in storm battered seas must be worse. An excellent book for anyone who wants to know just how hard it must be to be a sailor.
I have a long commute to work, so I listen to audio books as a way to indulge my periodic craving for books while maintaining the ability to drive. Because of this, I have not actually read the print version so am not in a position to compare.
Discovering someone willing to stand up and say it's OKAY to be an introvert!
No particular "scene". That's not the right word. Rather, the insightful way the author explains how well extroverts and introverts can compliment each other without extroverts pressuring introverts to change their core personalities.
No extreme reaction, but a sense of relief there are other people like me who are comfortable being the introverts we are and feel we can live among our more extroverted neighbors without actually having to become one!
An excellent book detailing the fundamental differences between two distinct personality types.
I've wondered how a presumably educated, reasonable nation of people could allow the rise to power such terrible madness. This book answers that question somewhat from a civilian perspective. Good book.
Yes, I would recommend this audiobook for anyone interested in the life and work of Steve Jobs in particular and the roots of the computer and hi-tech revolution in general.
The candid content
The last chapter, concluding with Steve Jobs own words about what legacy he wanted to leave behind.
Although it did not make me laugh or cry, the book was very insightful.
I was struck by how intuitive Steve Jobs was in his business dealings rather than relying on reports or keeping close tabs on the competition. A truly in depth journey into the mind of Steve Jobs.
