  • The Thing About Life Is That One Day You'll Be Dead

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 40 mins)

    Story
    (8)

    Mesmerized, at times unnerved, by his 97-year-old father's nearly superhuman vitality and optimism, David Shields undertakes an investigation of the human physical condition. The result is this exhilarating book - both a personal meditation on mortality and an exploration of flesh-and-blood existence from crib to oblivion. It's an exploration that paradoxically prompts a renewed and profound appreciation of life.

    Mark says: "Too much of the author's uninteresting story"
    "Interesting but not Inspiring"
    Overall

    Read this book if you are interested in how we age but not if you are looking to be inspired by the process. With some things in life I prefer the country lyrics "I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then".

    Peppered with personal stories from Jim Tressel's storied coaching career, the book shares the fundamental lessons that he has been imparting to his players for the past 20 years. A perfect blend of football stories, spiritual insights, motivational reading, and practical application, The Winners Manual provides an inside look at the core philosophy that has served as the foundation for one of the most successful college football programs of all time.

    C. Grove says: "Good listen but would probably READ better."
    "Good listen but would probably READ better."
    Overall

    I loved this book but will probably go out and buy it too. Much of the teachings are short and I found myself wanting to relisten. If I were reading this would have obviously been easier to do. As an Illini fan I hate to say it but Coach Tressel makes it hard to root against Ohio State football (prior to listening it was easy:))

    This audiobook, aimed at men, explains how God longs to complete their growth through the six stages of manhood. It also seeks to show God's desire to equip them as fathers to initiate their sons to manhood.

    Chris says: "Clarity, Focus, Purpose - Mystery's of Manhood"
    "Too stong on the religious side this time..."
    Overall

    I LOVE Wild at Heart but found this book to be TOO religion focused. In Wild at Heart I felt he did a much better job balancing his AWESOME life lessons for raising boys with religion. That said, it was still worth the listen.

  • How We Decide

    Jonah Lehrer arms us with the tools we need to figure out how we decide, drawing on cutting-edge research by Daniel Kahneman, Colin Camerer, and others, as well as the real-world experiences of a wide range of "deciders" - from airplane pilots and hedge fund investors to serial killers and poker players. Lehrer shows how people are taking advantage of the new science to make better television shows, win more football games, and improve military intelligence.

    Sarah says: "Summarizes information from several superior books"
    "Engaging..."
    Overall

    I found this book very insightful especially as it relates to how our past experience shape our decision making. Great listen.
