    It is a cold, hard fact of business life that most startups fail. Even many of those entrepreneurs who ultimately succeed have stories of personal challenges, unsuccessful companies, and difficulties along the way. The founders of TechStars, a mentorship-driven startup accelerator, have worked with entrepreneurs and companies over the past twenty-five years, and have seen a number of the same issues come up again and again.

  • Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Story

    This is an entertaining and inspiring book and is helping motivate me into becoming an avid runner and I am experimenting successfully with the barefoot running philosophy. The performance and storyline are well laid out and keep your attention from start to finish. It is filled with entertaining adventures and interesting personalities. I recommend it for everyone especially if you are looking for some added motivation.

  • Atlas Shrugged

    Story
    (3604)

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Story

    This was a great story with a complex plot. It is long (53 hours) but went quickly as I listen in my car. The narrator was very good and was able to keep my attention. Although the timing was set a few decades ago, I think the overall concepts are quite relevant today and applicable in any scale (global to local).

    Without giving away any of the story, it develops well and builds upon itself dramatically. There are a lot of twists and turns throughout the story that keep you on the edge of your seat.

    I did run into a minor snag as this was a very long audiobook. I do not sync frequently with my computer so I download multiple parts. It is very easy to lose your place as the titles on my Ipod Touch do not display enough characters to see what part is what. I had to keep a notecard with the times that each segment took as that was the only way to identify each ~8 hour segment and make sure I listen in the correct order. It would be nice if the narrator stated "Part 1 of 8" at the beginning and end of each segment.
