    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I love Zig. I have nothing but respect for the man and what he has accomplished. I could not get past the narration. I wish he would have just read the book and left his impressions at home Get the book instead.

    A Better Place is the story of two boys from two completely different worlds struggling to find themselves amongst a whirlwind of confusion. Will the strength they find in each other be enough to overcome the hatred and abuse of others? The unlikely pair struggle through friendship and heartbreaks, betrayal and hardships, to find the deepest desire of their hearts.

    What a story. I finished this in record time. I was sneaking a listen every chance I had. Spent this Saturday with the tv off...on the edge of my seat...listening to this story. Not sure if the story continues but I will definitely be looking to see..... what a great time I had. I couldn't believe the emotion this brought out..... was that a tear? Geez.
    Great audiobook!

    Despite high-minded ideals, temptation always seems to loom around the corner, threatening to derail us into a desperate world of secret behavior and covered-up indiscretions. From families to marriages to businesses, on a scale as global as the credit default swap meltdown or as personal as our last session on the Internet, we are suckers for bad ideas.Why do we so often make poor decisions that can lead to life-shattering results? Why do we promise ourselves to do better only to slide back into our old habits?

    this is another one I couldn't make it through. I felt like I was being preached to, not that there is anything wrong with that, just not what I expected. It also seemed to be an advertisement for his website and software.
    I made it through 2 chapters then had to give it up. Honestly, I stopped reading reviews because I don't want to be influenced...but I totally should have read about this one before I wasted my money and my time.
    Maybe it got better.....I'll never know.

    From a meager first day when he sold three bottles - to total sales of over $98 million just thirty months later, this is the true and actual story of how it was done. Over 60 hours of interviews with Jack will tell you exactly step by step, how he made a vast fortune in less than three years. No broad strokes in this audiobook. Every step is detailed of how it was done. The story of a true marketing genius and some great lessons for anyone who needs to improve sales or start a business or their own.

    Brilliant.... What better way to sell more of your product or get more people to sign up to be a distributor than to have a book written about your story. This book is nothing but an ad for the guy's business. I was able to listen to the whole book at one sitting. There are a few tidbits of good information...basic information about advertising and marketing.The audio quality is tough. You can here the narrator banging on the table..... several times. Again, this is just a 2+ hour ad for the business.....

    I never thought I would say that a book actually made a change in my life but this one did. I've lost count of the number of times I have listened to this one. Every time I listen, I get something new. As Andrew will tell you, the information is basic, but it is delivered in a way that really makes sense and is very easy to understand. You will not be disappointed. This goes for his other book too. Get them both!

    What if the smartest people in the world understand something that the rest of us don't? (They do.) What if they know that in order to achieve success, they will sometimes have to do things that others may initially perceive as stupid? The fact of the matter is that the smartest people in the world don't run from stupid, they lean into it (in a smart way). In The Power of Starting Something Stupid, Richie Norton redefines stupid as we know it, demonstrating that life-changing ideas are often tragically mislabeled stupid.

    If you've ever dreamed of starting your own business, this refreshingly simple, easy-to-read guide will give you the information, inspiration, and reassurance you need to get started. It encourages budding entrepreneurs to take the leap into the dark, while shining a bright light on the first six months of a successful start-up. It breaks down what appears to be an Everest-sized challenge into a series of small hills for you to conquer.

    Leading Life and Career Coach Allison Maslan will guide you to personal and professional transformation. The burning question is “Do you want to be in the same place you are now in 10 years, or even five years?” The truth is that you will be asking yourself that same question in another decade if you don't take action now. There is a completely fulfilling life just waiting to be claimed as your own. The next question is “What are you waiting for?”

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

    I couldn't make it through this one. I'm sure there is some good information in there somewhere, I just couldn't find it. She did mention having a flight plan to Blast Off.... which made me think of Brian Tracy's book "Flight Plan". (go get this book instead)


    What was most disappointing about Allison Maslan’s story?

    I lost count of the number of times I heard the web address.... she lets you know over and over that there is a web program available. Funny, I have no idea what the website is.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    There was no pause when reading segment titles. It drove me crazy. While there was a pause between chapters (and music) I just found it annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    look her up and check out the website.... thats what she wants you to do anyway. Save the money on the audio.

    Imagine discovering what successful people have in common, distilling it into a set of simple practices, and using them to transform your company, your career, and your life. Written by three thought leaders in organizational development and self-improvement, including Built to Last co-author Jerry Porras, Success Built to Last challenges conventional wisdom at every step. It draws on face-to-face, unscripted conversations with hundreds of remarkable human beings from around the world.

    I'm sure this is much better as a book. There is some good information and stories but it was so hard to make it through. The narrators are dreadful and hard to listen to.
