  • Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...And Others Don't

    Built To Last, the defining management study of the 90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

    What made the experience of listening to Good to Great the most enjoyable?

    As an academic I really appreciate the data behind the book. Many leadership books start backwards, with the goal rather than the data. Dr. Collins and his group let the data speak and simply interpreted what the data was saying. Excellent job. Excellent examples of both level 5 and lesser leadership. My dilemma now .... can I be a level 5, will my work have a legacy?

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    Would you try another book from David McCullough and/or David McCullough?

    yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love this period of history. I like to think about what happend 235 years ago on the very ground I tread every day.


    Was 1776 worth the listening time?

    qualified yes. If you're interested in the period, otherwise there are a lot of details that you'll probably struggle with.

  • Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs

    Successful couples know that harmony and happiness in marriage are not achieved by love alone. There is the other side of the Ephesians 5:33 equation - respect. Yes, a wife needs love. But a husband needs respect. Based on extensive biblical and scientific research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs reveals the secret to couples meeting each other's deepest needs: Without love she reacts without respect, and without respect he reacts without love and a destructive, vicious cycle begins.

    What did you love best about Love & Respect?

    It is a Biblically based look at the husband and wife dynamic.


    What other book might you compare Love & Respect to and why?

    The Five Love Languages. Both books teach that the husband and wife are different people, with different styles of communication. However, if you don't know how to best communicate your love for your spouse your marriage will suffer. The good news is that you can learn to effectively love your spouse.


    Any additional comments?

    I initially thought the book was a little harsh on the wife. I was hesitant to re-listen to it with my wife because she is a very strong woman and I though she might react negatively to the first few section of the book and not get to the excellence that comes later. Of course, like many of my assumption about my wife I was wrong. She loved the book too and didn't hear the harshness I heard. God is Good!

  • Doctrine: What Christians Should Believe

    Driscoll and Breshears team up again to teach 13 key elements of the Christian faith that should be held by anyone claiming to be a follower of Jesus. This is a comprehensive and accessible resource that helps believers clarify and articulate their beliefs and provides seekers with a solid introduction to Christianity’s central doctrines.

    "Excellent material, awful narration."

    What disappointed you about Doctrine: What Christians Should Believe?

    The narration kills the material. It takes really important and well researched topic and theological statements and drives them into the ground.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Runnette?

    Mark Driscoll. Alternatively, anyone with a personality in their voice would have done better.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy and read the hardcopy use your audible credit for something else. The book is really excellent it is just a terrible performance.
