    Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

    Henrik says: "Surprise: Two books in one!"
    "every thing to know about the man"
    Overall

    if you are interested in knowing the real Einsein, this is the book to listen to. although you may find some of it too scintific, it worth spending some time learning about it.

    We all learn at least one language as children. But what does it take to learn six languages...or seventy? In Babel No More, Michael Erard, "a monolingual with benefits," sets out on a quest to meet language superlearners and make sense of their mental powers. On the way he uncovers the secrets of historical figures like Italian cardinal Giuseppe Mezzofanti, who was said to speak seventy-two languages; Emil Krebs, a pugnacious German diplomat, who spoke sixty-eight languages; and Lomb Kat, a Hungarian who taught herself Russian by reading Russian romance novels.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Babel No More to be better than the print version?

    This book inspired me to start learning a third language. Michael Erard take you in an amusing journey to the history of language learning processes and the most famous polyglots.

    Would you listen to Spanish for the Busy Traveler again? Why?

    In genera, this book is a good reference for those traveling to a Spanish speaking countries. Also for those studying Spanish may found it useful. Still there were three things that I didn't like about this audio:

    1- The narrator's voice was loud and kind of sharp.

    2- It focuses on Latin Spanish without any mentioning of Spain Spanish.

    3- Some times, it waste the time by associating some vocabulary words with an English words or some other thins, which I found unnecessary.

    Overall, I cant say I didn't benefited from spending money and time on this audio, as a mater of fact I highly recommend listening to as much as you can on these audios in order to enhance your Spanish.

    Would you listen to Collins Spanish with Paul Noble - Learn Spanish the Natural Way, Part 1 again? Why?

    Beside this book, I have listened to the "Spanish for the busy traveler) and I'm listening now to the "Coffee break Spanish" which is a radio podcast dedicated to learning many languages, Spanish included. I found that Noble's approach is both effective as well as easy to grasp. a strong point in this audio is that it teaches you both Spain Spanish and Latin Spanish without compromising your time or understanding of the main concepts of the language. by the time i finished the course (4 parts), I developed the ability to have various communications in Spanish as well as hundreds of vocabulary words. You wont be fluent merely by listening to this audio, but it will give a great start do be.

    When his sister tricks him into taking her guru on a trip to their childhood home, Otto Ringling, a confirmed skeptic, is not amused. Six days on the road with an enigmatic holy man who answers every question with a riddle is not what he'd planned. But in an effort to westernize his passenger---and amuse himself---he decides to show the monk some "American fun" along the way.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Breakfast with Buddha to be better than the print version?

    The performance is amazing. The way the narrator change his voice to imitate the foreign language is so professional


    What other book might you compare Breakfast with Buddha to and why?

    Compared to other “seek yourself” books, this one is considered one of the best. Linking the ideas of the author with a story makes it very enjoyable journey.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't encounter a complete change after reading the book, but it really helped me with reviewing some aspect of my current “material” life.


    Any additional comments?

  • The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work

    Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.

    Roy says: "Very Informative Application of Positive Psycholog"
    "Great value for your money"
    Overall

    Just what you need to hear again and again. If you find it difficult to keep an optimistic, enthusiastic, and positive attitude, this is what you need to get. The author keeps you impressed with new approaches and technics that you can utilize during both happy and unhappy events. You’ll never regret buying such a master piece.

    Most of us grew up with the idea that there is good debt and there is bad debt. Good debts are generally considered to be debts you incur to buy things that can go up in value—like a home or college education. Bad debts are things like credit card balances, where you borrowed money to buy things that depreciate or go down in value, like most consumer goods.

    Kevin says: "Advertisement for the desperate"
    "Pure commercial"
    Overall

    Other than few immaterial, known information, the book offers nothing. from the beginning to the end, the author talks either about how great financial planner he is or about his products, as if you’re watching a commercial ad. Not worth reading.

    This is a book about getting rich. It's different from any other book on the subject because Felix Dennis made himself rich. Very rich indeed. As a matter of fact, he is one of the richest self-made men in Britain. How to Get Rich doesn't pull any punches, and shows that the highway to riches is littered with pitfalls, heartbreak, and obstacles. But for those with the drive and determination to try, this book provides a witty and authoritative road map.

    Anders says: "Hitchhikers guide to the Money"
    "Honest, fun and insightful"

    One of the good things about this book is the real-life experience of the writer. No theiories, no (BIG) ideas, no suffistication. A plain language with frank and direct opinions, in addition to the fun way of the writer.

    Napoleon Hill, born into poverty in 1883, began writing as a reporter for small town newspapers while just a teenager. When industrialist Andrew Carnegie commissioned him in 1908 to interview over 500 successful men and women to help prove his theory that success could be distilled down to a clear-cut formula, Hill met with hundreds of the richest and most famous people of the time.

    It is the father of all self-improvement ideas. A holistic approach to all kind of success in life. You will never regret spending the 24 hours that is needed to finish the book. And more than that, it would be hard not to repeat the experience and have a second listen to the whole thing.
