    What does it take to turn ideas into action? What are the elements of a perfect pitch? How do you win the war for talent? How do you establish a brand without bucks? These are some of the issues everyone faces when starting or revitalizing any undertaking, and Guy Kawasaki, former marketing maven of Apple Computer, provides the answers.

    A User says: "Great Content - Punishing Narration"
    "Not exactly meant for MBA's"
    Overall

    I wish all business book/textbook writers could learn a thing or two from Guy. He's original, practical and effective. Buy the book, buy the audiobook and go on his website (garage.com) and watch his presentation.

    New research has revealed that myelin, once considered an inert form of insulation for brain cells, may be the holy grail of acquiring skill. Journalist Daniel Coyle spent years investigating talent hotbeds, interviewing world-class practitioners (top soccer players, violinists, fighter, pilots, artists, and bank robbers) and neuroscientists. In clear, accessible language, he presents a solid strategy for skill acquisition.

    Stephen says: "Anecdotes presented as data"
    "Fantastic book!"
    Overall

    This is book is one of the best in its kind. I wish I read this during my teenage years. I wish I read it during my university years. I recommend this book to all parents, teachers, coaches and university profs. The advices are backed by strong evidence and studies but most importantly, they make lots of sense.

    Story
    (359)

    In gripping, never-before-heard detail, President Bush brings listeners inside the Texas governor's mansion on the night of the hotly contested 2000 election; aboard Air Force One on 9/11, in the hours after America's most devastating attack since Pearl Harbor; at the head of the table in the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in Iraq; and behind the Oval Office desk for numerous historic and controversial decisions.

    Shirley says: "straight forward"
    "Surprisingly touching"
    Overall

    I could never imagine myself being able to listen to a whole Audiobook narrated by President Bush. His voice is surprisingly calming and his words are quite touching. On more than one occasion, I have to admit, my eyes filled with tears. He made very tough decisions and he stood strong by all of them. He clearly states his biggest mistakes and regrets with genuine candor.

    The words you use say a lot about you. Some words say that you are smart, eloquent, or persuasive. Others say that, uh, you don't know what you're talking about. Knowing which words to use and how to use them are keys to getting the most from your mind and making a lasting impression. Word Smart will help you learn the words you absolutely need to know!

    Pei Lin says: "Good, effective, but without attachment"
    "Great learning tool"
    Overall

    This is a great way to learn sophisticated English Vocabulary. Unlike some other vocabulary-teaching audiobooks that just read words and definitions aloud, this one puts them in context and stories that are easy to remember. The interaction of both narrators adds to the learning experience.
