  • Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 17 mins)
    • By Tony Hsieh
    • Narrated By Tony Hsieh
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    In this, his first audiobook, Tony Hsieh - the widely admired CEO of Zappos, the online shoe retailer -explains how he created a unique culture and commitment to service that aims to improve the lives of its employees, customers, vendors, and backers. Using anecdotes and stories from his own life experiences, and from other companies, Hsieh provides concrete ways that companies can achieve unprecedented success.

    Ben says: "Do one thing exceptionally"
    "Most of this was a great listen"

    Overall, this was a pretty good book. The best part was the early struggle and growth phases. Audacity, boldness, and luck. Would we have made the same choices?
    The down side was the last portion, which IMHO slid into a "look how awesome our culture is" self-love-fest. I guess it's my preference for the entrepreneurial side of it, versus the culture growing side.
    So, yes... a good read. Enjoy!

  • Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By Ann Coulter
    • Narrated By Ann Coulter

    The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrate mobs - it is the mob. Sweeping in its scope and relentless in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of liberals as standard groupthink behavior. To understand mobs is to understand liberals.

    Joy says: "Perfect Conservative Rant"
    "A unique approach, very thought-provoking."

    I've read many conservative books. Most have very similar approaches (not bad, just similar). This is the case with books of other perspective, too.
    This book is different, even from Colter's previous books. Her interpretation of Gustave Le Bon's "The Crowd" in relation to the modus operandi of both the Left and Right is quite unique and eerily accurate.
    This is not just another conservative book. This is an important book and is as thought-provoking as Mark Levin's "Liberty and Tyranny."
    Highly recommend.

  • FREE: The Future of a Radical Price

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 2 mins)
    • By Chris Anderson
    • Narrated By Chris Anderson

    The New York Times best-selling author heralds the future of business in Free. In his revolutionary best seller, The Long Tail, Chris Anderson demonstrated how the online marketplace creates niche markets, allowing products and consumers to connect in a way that has never been possible before. Now, in Free, he makes the compelling case that, in many instances, businesses can profit more from giving things away than they can by charging for them.

    Joshua Kim says: "Valuable"
    "So many A-HA moments!"

    This book was a great listen, but there were so many insights that I could barely pay attention. I like this so much, I actually bought the paper version so I could scribble in the margins.
    As a knowledge manager, it gave me the concepts that help define some of the attention scarcity versus information abundance issues.

  • How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must): The World According to Ann Coulter

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By Ann Coulter
    • Narrated By Elizabeth White

    From the author of The New York Times best sellers Treason and Slander comes an updated Ann Coulter compendium, complete with reader responses and television and talk radio transcripts (Couric, Donahue, Franken). With titles like "Would Mohamed Atta Object to Armed Pilots?", "9 out of 10 Caribou Support Drilling", and "Liberal Pimps for Clintonism", How to Talk to a Liberal covers Coulter's waterfront on her favorite issues and targets, from national security to Hollywood.

    Mike says: "funny...but...."
    "Good listening, but don't expect much new."

    I like her show and enjoy her columns. I was expecting new material, but instead this book is a collection of her columns. They are (as usual) quite pointed and always fun, especially in hindsight. Still a good listen, just don't expect a bunch of new material.
