    In Mozart's Brain and the Fighter Pilot, eminent neuropsychiatrist and best-selling author Richard Restak, M.D., combines the latest research in neurology and psychology to show us how to get our brain up to speed for managing every aspect of our busy lives.

    Glenn E. Graham says: "Brain exercises for you"
    "Interesting stuff but limited"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book, though it would have been better in unabridged format. The many exercises simply don't suit themselves to audio book format. It's just too hard to concentrate on them when you're in traffic or doing your workout or whatever activity you're engaged in. You really need to view them on paper and work with them in more traditional ways. Without the exercises, this is still valuable material, if perhaps a little dry.

  • Catch Me If You Can

    Story
    (942)

    Frank W. Abagnale was one of the most daring conmen, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. His story is now a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

    Steve says: "Really entertaining!"
    "Fills in the gaps"
    Overall

    This audiobook does a wonderful job of telling the true story of Frank Abignail Jr., with great narration and delightful honesty by the author. As a result, it fills in many of the gaps and false impressions left by the movie version, such as the truth of his time in a French prison. Unfortunately, the ending is abruptly cut off.

  • Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism

    Story
    (27)

    In a stunning follow-up to her number one best seller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today's war on terrorism.

    Mark says: "A bizarre phenomenon"
    "About time conservatives spoke up"
    Overall

    It's high time that conservatives fought back against the constant stream of liberal deceit that fills the pages of newspapers and textbooks. Ann is delightfully frank and doesn't hold back any punches. Her work is well researched and delivered with a credible narration style. She occasionally draws conclusions that are a little contrived, but that's a minor flaw in an otherwise excellent work that needs to be read if only to provide balance to the drivel fed to Americans through the massively liberal-controlled media.

    Best selling author Jack Trout doesn't beat around the bush. He takes marketers to task for taking the easy route too often, employing high-tech razzle-dazzle and sleight of hand when they should be working to discover and market their product's uniquely valuable qualities. He examines successful differentiation initiatives and outlines the many ways you can achieve differentiation.

    George says: "Well presented arguments"
    "Well presented arguments"
    Overall

    This book presents a strong, compelling argument for the need to differentiate your brand from others, with many examples to prove the author's points. Relevant to our modern business climate and engaging all the way to the end. The kind of thing you'll listen to more than once if you're involved in marketing, advertising, or brand building.

    KMH says: "Not worth the time"
    "Fairy tale format frustrating"
    Overall

    This parable approach is interesting in book form, but it becomes too much of an airy fairy tale when narrated. Predictable from the start, overly simplistic and far too idealistic. This kind of approach worked well in the 80s and 90s but our culture has moved beyond it into more sophisticated needs. I've enjoyed other stuff by these authors but this was unrewarding as an audio book.
