    The Dawn Treader is the first ship Narnia has seen in centuries. King Caspian has built it for his first voyage to find the seven lords, good men whom his evil uncle Miraz banished when he usurped the throne. The journey takes Edmund, Lucy, their cousin Eustace, and Caspian to the Eastern Islands, beyond the Silver Sea, toward Aslan's country at the End of the World.

    Sarah says: "Favorite Narnia book"
    "Great Classic"

    I had read the books before, but to have them read to me while I drive was amazing. Great story with some good Bible based lessons. The lessons are not pointed out, but they are certainly there.

    Stop wasting your precious time. Business executives nationwide agree that meetings are the most unproductive activity in business today. Now, whether you're a leader or a participant, one of America's master communication specialists shows how you can get the most out of any meeting in half the time.

    As a follow up to the success of Lead Like Jesus, Masterful Leadership features further teaching on the subject of Leadership featuring the likes of Ken Blanchard, John Ortberg, Henry Blackaby, Bob Buford, and many others.

    Terri says: "Must read for all leaders"
    "What are you in it for?"
    Overall

    If you are looking for a leadership book, this is not it. Its not a book and there is not any real direct leadership insight.

    However, if you are after a GREAT Christian seminar with amazing speakers, lots of energy and a very uplifting message, this is a great listen!

    All of us in the today's workforce are called upon, more and more, to work effectively in teams. But do you know how to build a team that truly takes advantage of the knowledge, experience, and motivation of its members? Here, expert authors Ken Blanchard, Alan Randolph, and Peter Grazier outline a three-step process that will help you transform any kind of team into a Next-Level team.

    Shawn says: "Good material but.."
    "Good material but.."
    Overall

    The teamwork material presented is good, with a large variety of facts and examples. There is a good amount of detail presented also. The content of this book is good.

    The narrator has something of a William Shatner sound to him with odd inflections on the end of many of his words. While distracting for a business book, I am sure its great in an actual story.

  • Why Teams Don't Work

    Teamwork, one of the most celebrated concepts in corporate life, is falling short on its promise. Why Teams Don't Work identifies the obstacles (most of them people-made) that prevent teams from achieving their potential, suggests methods to remove those obstacles, and explains how to take care of the team members.

    Shawn says: "Probably better to read"
    "Probably better to read"
    Overall

    The book works out to be a lot of rapid fire lists. Its hard to listen to and keep up with. I imagine that you would get more from it by readign the book and seeing the lists.

    I didn't think there was a lot of detail behind the lists, but some of the lists themselves are helpfull.

    The Unicorn says that humans are brought to Narnia only in time of greatest need, and that time is now. The great Lion Aslan, the heart of Narnia, is missing. An impostor roams the land in his place, enslaving Aslan's loyal creatures and spreading treachery and lies. Only King Tirian and his small band of loyal followers are left to fight the last battle in this magnificent ending to The Chronicles of Narnia.

    Michael says: "Narnia Chronicles come to a great conclusion"

    I had read the books before, but to have them read to me while I drive was amazing. Great story with some good Bible based lessons. The lessons are not pointed out, but they are certainly there.

    Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory's Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to...somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion's song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis, before they finally return home.

    What use is this 5 minute clip? Stupid! I thought I was getting something. Guess I should be glad it was a free inclusion rather than something paid for.
