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

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 9 mins)
    • By Christopher McDougall
    • Narrated By Fred Sanders

    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.

    Corey says: "Amazing read - even for non-runners"
    "AWESOME!!!!!!!!!"

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Born mute, speaking only in sign, Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents and an unusual breed of dogs on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin. But when tragedy strikes the Sawtelle family, Edgar flees to the surrounding wilderness. He comes of age in the wild, fighting for his survival and that of the three yearling dogs who follow him.

    Overall

    I don't have a higher education or a vast knowledge of literature. I'm just your average reader who loves a great story and I tend to stick with authors whom I trust; and there's a lot of them. Wroblewski, with his amazing gift of prose, led me through many hours of delightful reading. My armor was stripped away masterfully with each chapter until my heart lay open and bare for Edgar, Alondine, and Trudy......only to be ripped to shreads. I was telling everyone I new what a wonderful experience I was having as I listened to this book and even bought a hard cover copy (I like to read as I listen sometimes) that I was going to give to my grandmother to read. Not anymore. I think the average reader will be extremely disappointed. The intelectual types will thrive and debate. Me? I'm glad I read it and now have a new layer of "sawtelle" armor. Ultimately I've just found another author whom I cannot trust and will not read him again. But I will always read, read, read. On to the next one.

  • Asshole: How I Got Rich & Happy by Not Giving a Damn about Anyone & How You Can, Too

    Marty Kihn was the nicest guy in the world, until he got fed up with being passed over for promotions at work, tired of being suckered into walking his neighbor's dog, and sick of being disrespected by the man who sold him his morning coffee. On the day he turned 40, Kihn set out to transform himself from Mr. Nice Guy into a rule-breaking, power-mongering, Fox News-watching asshole.

    An inspirational journey of self discovery. I loved it. I laughed out loud and was cheering this guy on. Who would have thought my newest hero would be an Asshole.
