    When you start creating small, niche-focused one-page Web sites you'll have income streaming into your pocket, whether you're awake or asleep....

    Would you try another book from Jeanette Cates and/or Jeanette Cates?

    Don't buy it. Sorry I did. The "interviewee's" information is dated and even the interviewer, by her tone of voice, signals skepticism about this audio book's content.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeanette Cates’s performances?

    No.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Create One-Page Web Sites for a Steady Income Stream?

    I wouldn't have published it. Any of it.

    We're beginning to see the impact of the new publishing model. Perhaps anyone can be a publisher, but not everyone will publish credible content.

    A vocation arises, not as a response to external forces, but authentically from within your own body. Dr. Rick Jarow has helped thousands of frustrated job-seekers open to their intuition, transform their values into action, and answer their true calling - instead of settling for a paycheck. The job you were born to do will unfold in time - take the time first to listen to this advice.

    J. Yoon says: "Best book I've read on internal career calibration"
    "Jarow's a joke. Or is playing one on his reader."

    Story
    Would you try another book from Rick Jarow and/or Rick Jarow?

    Never. The spirituality movement sells books, I'm sure. But, other than religious institutions, there's no room for spirituality in the workplace. The author, an academic, is clueless about the reasons business organizations exist or the reasons those organizations employ people.

    He's another of those "the universe will provide" pontificators.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rick Jarow again?

    No. His very voice offends me despite I kept "giving it a chance."


    What didn’t you like about Rick Jarow’s performance?

    The author's "spiritual journey" is reflected in his delivery. This book speaks with a trendy vocabulary and in "touchy feely" tones. The approach appeals to followers of that movement but won't help a real-world career.


    What character would you cut from The Ultimate Anti-Career Guide?

    The author.


    Any additional comments?

    It's disheartening to think I spent my money and time on this book. "Anti-career Guide," indeed.

    What did you love best about How to Deliver a TED Talk?

    It's clear Donovan did his research and understands the nature of TED Talks, not simply public speaking.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author, having reviewed hundreds of TED talks, illustrates his points by directing the listener to specific examples.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Pierce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not applicable.


    Any additional comments?

    If you aspire to perform a TED or TEDx talk, this, of all the books I've read [there have been many] is the best in leading the way to the TED or TEDx stage. This book alone, is an idea worth spreading.

  • The Education of Millionaires: It's Not What You Think and It's Not Too Late

    The Myth: If you get into a good college, study hard, and graduate with excellent grades, you will be pretty much set for a successful career. The Reality: The biggest thing you won't learn in college is how to succeed professionally. Some of the smartest, most successful people in the country didn't finish college. None of them learned their most critical skills in an institution of higher education. And like them, most of what you'll need to learn to be successful you'll have to learn on your own, outside of school.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend this book to demonstrate how little we learn in college and how much we're dependent on ourselves to innovate and think.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Erik Synnestvedt’s performances?

    It was a dull read but could have been a performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I felt captivated by the book. I've based a presentation to college students on what I learned.
