    Holiday gatherings can be stressful times for families, and occasionally the conversation around the holiday table can get heated. Difficult Conversations shows you a way out of this dilemma; it teaches you how to handle even the toughest conversations more effectively and with less anxiety.

    Jean-Pierre says: "A must-hear audiobook !"
    "Had an immediate impact on my conversations"
    Overall

    I find the model of the "three conversations" to be very helpful. Just listening to this text helped me to adopt a learning stance which makes my conversations more productive. I plan to listen to this book again soon to more fully absorb the many useful ideas.

    Space and time form the very fabric of the cosmos. Yet they remain among the most mysterious of concepts. Is space an entity? Why does time have a direction? Could the universe exist without space and time? Can we travel to the past?

    Martin says: "Space and Time for the Common Man"
    "Enlightening and it holds your attention"
    Overall

    I am delighted with the unabridged version of this book. Not only do I feel like I have learned a tremendous amount about modern physics, but the text is very engaging. It has been a pleasure to listen to this book.

    When Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon decide to spy on a presentation her uncle, the commanding Lord Asriel, is making to the elders of Jordan College they have no idea that they will become witnesses to an attempted murder, and even less that they are taking the first steps in a journey that will lead them into danger and adventure unlike anything Lyra's unfettered imagination has conjured up.

    Arnold says: "A Terrific Book"
    "Beautifully written; well performed"
    Overall

    A mysterious, magical world. Beautiful writing. The dramatized performance is compelling. The story is exciting. A great listen!

  • Going Wireless

    Created specifically for executives and managers, Going Wireless shows how mobile technology is impacting every industry, including yours. Award-winning journalist Jaclyn Easton delivers the unexpected: In addition to in-depth discussions about mobile commerce, Internet cell phones, and Palm-type handhelds, she also examines wirefree options you've probably never heard of, all of which are transforming the way companies communicate, manage, market, and sell.

    says: "Her reading style"
    "Systematically explores the potential of wireless"
    Overall

    There is, as others noted, a fair bit of "hype" in this book, a breathless exhilaration about the many possible applications of wireless in the near future. But that's just the point and what I really liked about this book. If you want a balanced, measured assessment of wireless, look elsewhere. If you want an extended brainstorming session which will turn up many non-obvious implications of these new technologies, then this is well worth your time.

    As others have also noted, this is not the place to turn for a detailed explanation of the technology. The author provides enough detail for the reader to understand the basic function of the new devices.

    The author reads well and the text is engaging.
