    In this eye-opening account, Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice. Not only is the cliché flawed - preexisting passions are rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work - but it can also be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping. After making his case against passion, Newport sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do.

    Where does So Good They Can't Ignore You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A lot of good well researched material.Quite ground breaking. Somewhere towards the 2/3rd to 3/4th part of the book he started rambling a bit.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact about chess players, the ones who did regular tournaments did not improve as much as those who did serious study.

    Jewish culture and the Jewish people have succeeded--thrived even--for more than four thousand years under both good and unthinkable circumstances. Breaking the Jewish Code helps readers unlock the amazing secrets to this success.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    While one of the main themes of the book is the importance and sacredness of the Hebrew language, the narrator butcher's the Hebrew. The bad pronunciation makes a mockery of Hebrew. A bilingual narrator should have been used for this.


    What other book might you compare Breaking the Jewish Code to and why?

    Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tim Lundeen’s performances?

    No


    Do you think Breaking the Jewish Code needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    It does open up many interesting thoughts.
