    A visionary and optimistic thinker examines the tension between privacy and publicness that is transforming how we form communities, create identities, do business, and live our lives. The Internet, he argues, will change business, society, and life as profoundly as Gutenberg’s invention, shifting power from old institutions to us all.

    This book is a pleasure to listen to and I especially enjoyed it since I am a fan of his on twit.tv. I am on my second listen since the first listen was so good. He is articulate, knowledgeable, compassionate, and courageous.

    If you want a motivational story, tech testament, and a richness of experiences I would recommend this book. We need more people in the world like Jeff Jarvis.

    Robert Altman - visionary director, hard-partying hedonist, eccentric family man, Hollywood legend - comes roaring to life in this rollicking cinematic biography, told in a chorus of voices that can only be called Altmanesque.

    Story

    This is an interesting and informative book. However, the hard back book contains hundreds of pictures. The biggest challenge that I have with audio books do not include a document or an Adobe file to download with the pictures included in the book. This is a big drawback for me as a long time subscriber, which needs to be resolved to compete with the all the downloadable book options available to keep subscribers like myself in the future. I hope they find a resolution to this problem. I have seen these files available for very few of the books, however there are some.

    Enjoyable book and some of the personal information jumps around so it is hard to follow, entertaining.

    When the oldest of Kate Braestrup's four children was 10 years old, her husband, a Maine state trooper, was killed in a car accident. Stunned and grieving, she decided to pursue her husband's dream of becoming a Unitarian minister. She eventually began working with the Maine Game Warden Service, which conducts the state's search-and-rescue operations when people go missing in the wilderness.

    William says: "Very Enjoyable"
    "True Grit and Tenderness"
    Overall

    This audio book listen is a combined listen of grit, tears, heartbreak, and triumph not only of a woman and her family but the town and spirit of life. Definitely one of the best "reads" I have had in a long time and it definitely kept me coming back for more each day. It is hard to believe that this is a fairly new novelist since the storyline moves along in a present tense format, while Kate artfully interjects reflections combined with her own insights and spiritual questions. Don't shy away from this book if you are wary of a "religious" read or if you are concerned this is a "woman's perspective". The theme of the book holds to the truest sense of exploration of religious and spirituality issues and questions from her "concerned" family, friends, and self which addresses what we all have thought at one time or another with great finesse and care. The novel is careful not to draw conclusions or make judgments of any class, religion, or stance but to respect each and every living creature with honor and remembrance that is fitting and desired. The author reads the book giving each turn of phrase and chapter the appropriate inflection of a word or turn of phrase. Both intensity, pacing, and emotion is added to the text through the reading that may have been lost by a third party reader who had not lived and experienced the joy and loss that we experience with and through the woman who is Kate and her loving and quirky family who jumps from the pages. Five stars and happy listening. It will be joyous and you will be glad you did.
