    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency to be better than the print version?

    The book is already on my list of all time favorites, I have had the printed version for nearly 20 years. The Audio version is better in that I can now hear Mr Adams (may he Rest in Interconnectedness of Everything) characters as he heard them. Plus it is very convenient when I need to get my dose of Dirk and Douglas, and I can't actually sit and read (at work I work with my hands, so the brain and ears are free to wonder as they would like, not unlike Dirk.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just the whole silly look at the foibles of the human race and how we can sometimes actually get a better picture by looking askance at ourselves.


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

    Yes, I also have (of course) H2G2 (Hitchhikers Guide). It is the same quality, good.


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

    When Dirk tells Richard about how he started the "agency", looking for "Bernice" the Cat who got fed up being gassed. And the "Charge for Saving the world".

    Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last 15 years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

    John says: "HHTGH - Lightly Fried"

    Story
    Where does The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listen to this more than any other book. Too often I have felt more like Arthur Dents Towel in life. I recall this was a staple even on tape, back in the 80's when I was still doing conventions. I also like that it was Stephen Fry who did this one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The mice. It was just too damn funny that they are really 'pan dimensional beings doing experiments on us.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Fry – was your favorite?

    The book


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

    Yes. But then I never actually read the book all in one sitting either, I couldn't; laughing for that long you have to take a break.

    If you've never read The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, you've been missing out on one of the best-selling leadership books of all time. If you have read the original version, then you'll love this new expanded and updated one. Internationally recognized leadership expert, speaker, and author John C. Maxwell has taken this million-seller and made it even better. Seventeen new leadership stories are included and two new Laws of Leadership are introduced. New evaluation tool will reveal your leadership strengths - and weaknesses....

    Stevenson says: "This didn't need to be a book"
    "This is a must have for any Leader"

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

    Yes, the book is clearly spoken, at a pace that doesn't leave you scratching your head at a "what did he say?" pace. It was spoken in that friendly, down home fashion, and so the stories kept you thinking ahead. And you find Oops, better listen up cause you just went past the point of the story, it didn't always end like you might think.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No actual Characters, these are real people. and real situations; But the MacDonald Bros Story is the best.


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

    Yes, when I heard him speak about "don't think your the leader, just cause you have a title." I have kept that story close to heart.


    Any additional comments?

    I have the Hard bound copy, the Kindle version, and this version, making it a complete set for me. I have been using it to great success of late, getting people to realize "Managers manage things; Leaders build more leaders", and this has nothing to do with the Title.
