    At the dawn of the 20th century, humanity was facing global disaster. Mass starvation, long predicted for the fast-growing population, was about to become a reality. A call went out to the worlds scientists to find a solution. This is the story of the two enormously gifted, fatally flawed men who found it: the brilliant, self-important Fritz Haber and the reclusive, alcoholic Carl Bosch. Together they discovered a way to make bread out of air, built city-sized factories, controlled world markets, and saved millions of lives.

    Overall

    A small slice of history that is very interesting and informative. The author is not just a good historian, but a good writer as I was glued to the book until I finished it.

    Best-selling author David Ball has won widespread critical and popular acclaim for his sweeping novels, including Empires of Sand. With Ironfire Ball delivers a stirring historical epic of the Crusades. In the 16th century, only the Knights of Malta stand against the Ottoman Empire of Suleiman the Magnificent and his 40,000 brutal warriors.

    "Good build up but not a great finale, entertaining"

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

    Yes. History told balanced with fictional and entertaining characters


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The build up and the development of the characters were great, however, their influence on the finale failed a bit. I think that keeps this book from becoming an all time classic.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Great performance

    The best leaders not only lead well but also reflect on their leadership long enough and thoughtfully enough to articulate what philosophies cause them to do so. Whether serving in the marketplace or in ministry, as executives or rank-and-file employees, as salaried staff or volunteer servants, they can pinpoint the rationale for their actions and decisions with the ease of reciting their home address.

    Kevin says: "Amazingly inspiring!"
    "not a business book"
    Overall

    I thought the book would be on proverbs, such as "never let a crisis go to waste". Instead, it is all about cliche words, God, church, and Christ!!!

    Do you want to get to the top? Do you want to know how to rise above the crowd and become a leader in your field? Then this is the audiobook for you. In How to Get to the Top, best-selling author Jeffrey J. Fox combines his own experience as an extremely successful entrepreneur with lessons learned at the family dinner table by business leaders.

    Overall

    I found nothing original in this book other than your stereotypical "do this, don't do that" management advice given in a very unstructured way.
