    "Fantastic Book, Dense with information"

    I loved this book. It's full of great information and ideas. I'll probably listen to it again to absorbe all the information. Having listened to or read a lot of other business books, I did find a lot of the examples were recycled (zappos, gary v, etc). That's my only complaint though.

  • Wild West 2.0: How to Protect and Restore Your Online Reputation on the Untamed Social Frontier

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By Michael Fertik, David Thompson
    • Narrated By Peter Ganim

    The Internet is like the Old West a frontier rich with opportunity and hope, but also a rough-and-tumble land of questionable characters, dubious legal jurisdictions, and hidden dangers. And just like the Old West, if you want to stake out your territory, you have to get there first and fend for yourself. On the web, that means defending your good name and reputation before the attacks start.

    Matt Dotson says: "Definitely for Internet Noobs"
    "Definitely for Internet Noobs"

    If you don't know what a noob is (or the Internet for that matter) then this is the book for you (the author will even define noob for you). If you've used the Internet before then this book will drive you crazy as the author repeats the same scary stories over and over. It's 80% sensationalism and 20% information. I wish the author would have just focused on teaching me something instead of trying to scare me about how easy my reputation can be tarnished on the Internet. Maybe the last 25% of the book redeems it's value, but I just couldn't make it through the whole book. It's one of the few audiobooks I chose not to finish.

  • Shadow of the Hegemon

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By Orson Scott Card
    • Narrated By David Birney, Scott Brick, Gabrielle de Cuir
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Orson Scott Card tells a tale long awaited by millions of fans: the story of how Bean turned away from his first friend, Ender, and became the tactical genius who won the Earth for Ender's brother, Peter, who became the Hegemon.

    Michael says: "Great book, poor transfer"
    "Great Story, poor audio production"

    I liked the story and the complexities of the political parts of the book. I'd give the book 5 stars, but this was one of the poorer audio productions I've heard on audible. Improper leveling of music, words that were spliced into the audio with a different voice, tone, and volume; all of these things distracted from the story and are things that are easily edited by 12 year olds on youtube. Maybe OSC should have taken a page from his own book, and had kids do the audio production.

  • The Secret

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 27 mins)
    • By Rhonda Byrne
    • Narrated By Rhonda Byrne
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Elisabeth says: "Good for an intro to the Law of Attraction"
    "I didn't believe the bad reviews ... I should have"

    Wow. This book is an achievement in stupidity. My thoughts are magnetic? Proven by quantum theory? Um ... not so much.

    Yes you can achieve something amazing if you focus on achieving it, but Rhonda is just making stuff up about everything between thinking about success and actually achieving it.

    For the first time ever I'm trying to figure out how to get a refund from audible. This is the worst of the over 200 books I have downloaded from audible.

  • Truman

    • UNABRIDGED (53 hrs and 20 mins)
    • By David McCullough
    • Narrated By Nelson Runger

    The life of Harry S. Truman is one of the greatest of American stories, filled with vivid characters and dramatic events. In this riveting biography, acclaimed historian David McCullough not only captures the man, a more complex, informed, and determined man than ever before imagined, but also the turbulent times in which he rose, boldly, to meet unprecedented challenges.

    Erik says: "Thoroughly enjoyable"
    "Skip the first 10 hours"

    This book is really interesting, once you get past the first 10 hours that provided about an hour's worth of information. After that though, this book deserves the praises all the other reviews are giving it.
