The Personal MBA is right up at the top of business books I have listened to
Josh Kaufman is obviously passionate about his subject matter
The Personal MBA gets to the point, the concepts are clear and easy to understand. Josh Kaufman takes the mystery out of what can be a mysterious and complex subject.
More action early on. Too much time having tea etc.
I won't read the further books in the series.
I didn't feel the performance brought me close enough to the characters
I thought the premise/story-line was interesting and had potential but it didn't go where I thought it should.
The narration was okay. The subject material was anecdotal and not consistent with the theme.
As or I would have suggested the author make the stories more relevant to the subject matter.
Someone interested in the events of the scientist involved and the history
Not as long as other books deal with the science and aren't just a story of who studied what.
The sample narrative was misleading. I thought this book would be about the science of the universe and at least include reference to quantum mechanics and particle physics.
A churchgoing retiree would enjoy this book
Less leaning on god for results in one's life.
No, too religous
The publisher's summary led me to believe this would be a useful retirement guide. It was not.
Once again Ken Follet has magnificent character development and continuos melodramatic conflict.
The interweaving of plots and characters makes the book tough to put down
The main characters, Merthin and Karis, clear protagonists but still very human
Like Pillars of the Earth there was just a bit too much description of architecture.
Very interesting intro into a historical novel on Alfred the Great. The story was very well put together with good solid narration. Lots of action and suspense combined with a sound story line. My only disappoinbtment was realizing I had purchased an abridged version. Would loved to have read the unabridged version.
The character development of the main character was well done, the evolution of the story line was compelling and held my interest.
Dinner with the main character Uthred, would be interesting. Young, head strong, confident yet still clearly full of flaws.
This book would rank in the top 3 of the audio books I have listened to.
The recounting of the authours early life and struggles are a story of interest
My favorite scene was the authours recounting of his accident, being struck by the van.
I found this an interesting autobiography c/w some advice on being a writer.
Well worth the listen, especially as Stephen King narrates the book himself.
The best part about this audio book is that Tony Hsieh, the person who owns the subject of the book is also its narrator. It is delivered in his own tongue, which makes the message more personal.
Although not a key focus of the book, the demonstration of persistence through adversity is an underlying element to the message of success through inovation and adherence to common principles and goals.
This is the only Tony Hsieh audio book I have listened to.
I think this would make a very interesting movie. Good story line and the fact that his first fortune vanished and he recovered in an even larger way truly promotes his never say die attitude. Tony refers to the book From Good to Great in his book. I would say Tony's tag line could be from Great to Greater.
I recoomend this as an entyertaining and inspirational listen.
I would recommend the first half of this book but not the second. It missed the point.
I'm not that interested in psychiatry so I probably wouldn't but another Frankl book.
I would see the movie if the story was about his concentration camp experience.
I found the second half of the book totally missed the point of what I expected to be explored,
