  • Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average, and Do Work That Matters

    There are only two paths in life: average and awesome. The average path is easy because all you have to do is nothing. The awesome path is more challenging, because things like fear only bother you when you do work that matters. The good news is Start gives listeners practical, actionable insights to be more awesome, more often.

    "It works if you have 10,000 hours"

    Would you try another book from Jon Acuff and/or Jon Acuff?

    I don't think so.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Sounded like a punk kid, and nobody wants to take advice from a punk kid.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very disappointing in that the author states clearly that you can make your dreams come true - maybe - if you only devote 20 hours a week to it for 10 years. He is also very boastful about his accomplishments, which to me is a turn-off. There is nothing but common sense advice in here and again, you should start young, because it is no easy road to achieving your dreams.

  • Younger Next Year: A Guide to Living Like 50 Until You're 80 and Beyond

    Younger Next Year is about how to turn back your biological clock. How to become functionally younger every year for the next five to 10 years, and continue to live with vitality and grace into your 80s and beyond.

    A. Stephens says: "Excellent information"
    "Good advice, only 1% of people will do it."

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Younger Next Year?

    The incredible effort that needs to be made to live a few extra years (maybe) in good health. I disagree that such strenuous exercise is needed 6 day a week - only because it's so impractical that anyone has the time to do it (or would even want to do it.) Good information, though. But very few people will follow this rigorous advice.

  • Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 36 mins)

    Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives. In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on 12 years of research, her book argues that vulnerability is not weakness but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection.

    Fulfillment and Exuberance says: "Love Brene Brown, didn't like the narrator"
    "Tells me who I am, but not how to change"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Brené Brown and/or Karen White?

    Probably not. The books spends hours explaining the condition: you feel this way, you act that way - and it's because of deep-rooted shame. It's how you were raised and how your parents were raised. It's about what happened to you when you were young, and growing up, and how this has affected you. Go on...please! Tell me how to dare greatly, how to change, how to overcome my pain. Please, tell me! But, like most other books that tell you what you really already know deep down, it offers no solutions, no real hope that you can change. Very disappointing.
