    Story

    After about 2 hours I just couldn't take any more. He loves to use his phrase "your nuts" and doesn't go more than about a minute or two saying "your nuts this" or "your nuts that." It becomes very annoying and distracting. We all KNOW that he is playing with he own double-entendre when he says "protect your nuts" or "don't let go of your nuts" or "trust your nuts". It's clever, I guess. But after hearing him say some clever variation of what he obviously is trying to make his own coined term, 500 times in a couple hours I get the impression he is more focused on marketing and self-promotion than actually helping men "who don't have any nuts" or "who gave their nuts to their wives". In fact, I am very convinced that that is exactly his goal in writing this book. He came up with the title FIRST, figured it would be his ticket to fame
    And fortune, and Phil and Dr Oz, so he wrote a bunch of pablum to create a book. I'm likely asking Audible to take it back so I can use my credit on a real self-help book.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Story

    Great listen. I listen to books on my walk in the morning with the dog. While I listened to this one, I continually upped my distance so I could hear what comes next. The final week I walked 7 miles a day for 7 mornings straight! It's THAT good!

    I'm writing this review at least a year after I listened to this book. And it still impacts me. When times get tough, I remember Louie Zamperini. He wasn't like Rambo, wasn't like Commando. He survived by doing the basic things necessary to get through each minute, each hour, each day, day-after-day.

    None of us will ever go through 1% of what Louie went through, but when we DO have something that going through is the only option, having read or heard this story will help you.

    It's told well, read well, and I highly recommend listening.

    A groundbreaking book about personal growth that presents a uniquely effective set of five tools that bring about dynamic change. The Tools offers a solution to the biggest complaint patients have about therapy: the interminable wait for change to begin. The traditional therapeutic model sets its sights on the past, but Phil Stutz and Barry Michels employ an arsenal of techniques - "the tools" - that allow patients to use their problems as levers that access the power of the unconscious and propel them into action.

    Psychology mixed with New Age. Nothing new. Just a waste of time and money. Two more guys that had no business writing a book. Absolutely nothing scientific here - nothing provable. Might as well take LSD or go on an Aborigial Walkabout. I couldn't even stand to finish it. Biggest disappointment of ANY Audible book I have ordered, ever.

    The most eagerly awaited presidential biography in years, Theodore Rex tells the story of President Theodore Roosevelt in real time, reflecting the world as "TR" saw it. Full of cinematic detail, Theodore Rex moves with the exhilarating pace of a novel, yet it rides on a granite base of scholarship.

    Story

    After listening to The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt I was super primed to get immediately into Theodore Rex. But within the first half-hour I was becoming very aggravated with the reader. He seemed to put way to much emphasis on every word, every sentence. As if each was THE most important he would ever utter. I contemplated quitting and just reading the book myself, but hung in there. And that is the advice I give to those contemplating listening to Rex. After an hour or so he calms down and does a good job through the rest of the book. He is particularly good as changing up his voice when reading quotes.

    If you liked The Rise you will probably be disappointed at how short Rex feels. It covers only one-fifth or so of the time that The Rise does, and it is action packed, so it flys by. I'm delaying listening to book three just because I don't want it to be over yet! I can only imagine how the American people who loved President Roosevelt must have felt when he left the Presidency. This great book gave me a taste of that. I highly recommend it.
