    Everyone is in sales. One in nine Americans work in sales, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and according to Daniel H. Pink, best-selling author of To Sell Is Human, so do the other eight. Whether you are selling houses or convincing your child to go to bed, you are in sales. To Sell Is Human... in 30 Minutes is the indispensable guide to quickly understanding the science of modern sales and persuasion as outlined in Daniel H. Pink's best-selling book, To Sell Is Human.

    What would have made To Sell Is Human in 30 Minutes better?

    Fortunately, I love the author's work and went on to read it right away. My advice: Order Pink's book and skip this guide - you will be 45 minutes ahead of anyone who order this book as a preview or primer.
    Don't waste time deciding to order the full book. Full original text is an instant classic, full of practical ideas that are particularly relevant to people who DON'T work in sales. i


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    It was the To Sell Is Human, Daniel Pink.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It focused on Pink's credentials and glazed over the principals so vaguely that even after reading the full book, I didn't find the Guide relevant.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from To Sell Is Human in 30 Minutes?

    This format didn't work for me as a practical preview or a post-read quick refresher. I am not sure I would attempt this 'expert' undertaking at all.


    Any additional comments?

    I may have enjoyed a 30 minute "refresher guide" that focused as a guide to those who enjoyed the book.

  • The Book Thief

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    Would you listen to The Book Thief again? Why?

    I listened to this book with my 10 and 14 year old sons. It was a wonderful opportunity to discuss those events of historical significance, the power of young love, friendship and war.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the family made a snowman in the basement. The kid's imaginations lit up. It was wonderful moment and Rosa became likable to my sons, by adding the face to the snowman.


    If you could take any character from The Book Thief out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    It would, of course, be Rudy. Perhaps he would be up for a race with my boys beforehand. He is such a hearty eater and would be in good company with my family.
