    You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and thrown in a blender. The blades start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do? If you want to work at Google, or any of America's best companies, you need to have an answer to this and other puzzling questions. Are You Smart Enough to Work at Google? covers the importance of creative thinking, ways to get a leg up on the competition, what your Facebook page says about you, and much more.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Difficult to follow without visualizing word problems and having time to think over problems.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More outside the box stories, less word puzzles.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    nope


    Any additional comments?

    Interesting, but fell short of my expectations...needed more points of attack than simply giving a bunch of puzzles to tackle.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Stephen King

    Story
    (16580)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Totally gripping!"

    Where does 11-22-63 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Best audiobook I've listened to so far! I literally spent every free minute listening and put much of my life on hold for awhile!


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

    Not sure if I've heard Craig Wasson before, but I loved his wide array of voices which helped bring the story to life and keep characters straight in my mind.


    Any additional comments?

    Didn't care for the commentary by King at the end....sounds like he's trying to sell the 'official story' a little too hard and makes it seem like propaganda...I never really explored the conspiracy theories on JFK and haven't seen Oliver Stone's movie, but his words rubbed me the wrong way and almost led me to explore the possibilities!
