    This no-holds-barred autobiography chronicles the remarkable life of Phil Robertson, the original Duck Commander and Duck Dynasty star, from early childhood through the founding of a family business. Life was always getting in the way of Phil Robertson’s passion for duck hunting. An NFL-bound quarterback, Phil made his mark on Louisiana Tech University in the 1960s by playing football and completing his college career with a master’s degree in English. But Phil’s eyes were not always on the books or the ball; they were usually looking to the sky....

    In The First 20 Hours, Josh Kaufman offers a systematic approach to rapid skill acquisition: how to learn any new skill as quickly as possible. His method shows you how to deconstruct complex skills, maximize productive practice, and remove common learning barriers. By completing just 20 hours of focused, deliberate practice you'll go from knowing absolutely nothing to performing noticeably well. What do you want to learn?

    Would you try another book from Josh Kaufman and/or Josh Kaufman?

    Only if it isn't read by Josh. His heavy inhale and sentence sprinting is overwhelming.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance could have been better if the reader wasn't rushing to start every sentence with an aggressive inhale then speaking each word as short as possible. Read at a normal pace and don't breath into the mic.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Some interesting examples were used, but the book reveals nothing worth the purchase. RD version - learn fast by committing to learn one thing at a time without distractions.


    Any additional comments?

    Josh needs to hire a professional reader. Reading is not his strong suit!

    The New International Version of the Bible is today’s most popular modern-English translation. This digital download of the NIV Audio Bible, Dramatized brings the Bible to life with this true-to-text dramatization of the Old and New Testament. The fully orchestrated background enriches the text reading and enhances the total experience. Digitally engineered from start to finish, this audio Bible delivers an inspiring and uplifting encounter with the Word of God.

    Monet says: "Excellent narration but should be easier to search"
    "Books as Chapters issue solved!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of NIV Audio Bible (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?

    no. both handle different applications. This is a silly question!


    Any additional comments?

    A provided PDF clearly maps each book of the Bible to the corresponding Audible audiobook 'Part' so browsing to a specific book of the Bible is manageable. Glad to see this is handled; first NIV version I've seen to handle the Audible 'Parts' separation issues.
