    Why do most new businesses fail, yet a few entrepreneurs have a habit of winning over and over again? The shocking discovery of years of research and trial is that most startups fail by doing the "right things," but doing them out of order. In other words, human nature combined with our entrepreneurial drive puts us on autopilot to become part of the 70% to 90% of ventures that fail.

    This one is an exception. It is a quick read/listen (as I knocked it out on a flight to Asia), and many of the concepts are spot on. For anyone building a business or trying to make their business better, this is a great resource.

    After reading it, and digesting many of the concepts, I've assigned it as mandatory reading for my staff and recommend it highly to my business partners. Had I read this years ago during my first start-up, I possibly would have avoided many costly errors and mistakes. In the end not having NISI as a resource to reference probably cost me and my initial investors several million dollars.

    I'd highly recommend you pick up a copy.

    With case histories and the results of in-depth mind-body research, Dr. Sarno describes how patients recognize the emotional roots of their back pain and sever the connections between mental and physical pain - and how, just by listening to this program, you may start recovering from back pain today!

    Story

    I have to say I'm not much into mind over matter but having had a "bad back" for the last twenty years I thought I'd give the book a try. All I can say is that it worked. It took a good six weeks for to completely eliminate my pain but it did. I'm not sure how it worked but it did.

    As a result of the book I've been back pain free for more than a year. Well worth the read.

    1794, the height of the French Revolution - Charles Hayden sets off aboard the ill-fated HMS Themis with orders to destroy a French frigate sailing from Le Havre and to gather intelligence from a royalist spy. On discovering French plans for an imminent invasion of England, Hayden must return to Portsmouth to give warning before it’s too late. But the enemy has been lying in wait for him, and so begins a dangerous chase out into the Atlantic and into the clutches of a powerful French squadron. After a thwarted attempt to masquerade as French sailors, Hayden and his officers are taken prisoner.

    Story

    Russell is a very good story teller and the story is strong. It's the best Royal Navy series outside of Master and Commander and the Hornblower books. The three books available on Audible are worth the download and the narration is top notch.

    When President Barack Obama ordered the surge of troops and aid to Afghanistan, Washington Post correspondent Rajiv Chandrasekaran followed. He found the effort sabotaged not only by Afghan and Pakistani malfeasance, but by infighting and incompetence within the American government: a war cabinet arrested by vicious bickering among top national security aides; diplomats and aid workers who failed to deliver on their grand promises; and generals who dispatched troops to the wrong places.

    Story

    this book. I've read over 50 volumes on military history from the great fictional Jack Aubrey RN series to WWII, up through the battle of Faluja

    The first third has a lot of background which gives a good background on the area and history. The story is depressing to see how much blood and money is wasted in war.

    I wish the book would have been narrated by someone other than the author (the performance is not bad, but not great).
