    In this essential and illuminating book, top business strategist Dev Patnaik tells the story of how organizations of all kinds prosper when they tap into a power each of us already has: empathy, the ability to reach outside of ourselves and connect with other people. When people inside a company develop a shared sense of what's going on in the world, they see new opportunities faster than their competitors. They have the courage to take a risk on something new.

    Overall

    Dev Patnaik has a great message. I had heard him in person and was eager to read the book which I purchased at the event. To save time I downloaded the book to listen to. The reader made it sound like a children's story not a serious set of ideas. I was mortified by how bad it was. It was so painful I quit listening and read the book.

  • The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: A Novel

    Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack is a letter addressed to Harold from a woman he hasn't seen or heard from in 20 years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. Harold pens a quick reply and, leaving Maureen to her chores, heads to the corner mailbox. But then Harold has a chance encounter, one that convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person.

    What did you love best about The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry?

    This is a story full of second-guessing, regret, and hope as Harold relives his life while on his "unlikely pilgrimage." The reader cannot help but cheer for Harold as he encounters one challenge after another ... and in doing so, discover they are cheering for themselves on their own pilgrimages through life. Never would have found this on my own. I am grateful to the other readers who loved it before I found it.

    Wives and Daughters, Elizabeth Gaskell's last novel, is regarded by many as her masterpiece. Molly Gibson is the daughter of the doctor in the small provincial town of Hollingford. Her widowed father marries a second time to give Molly the woman's presence he feels she lacks, but until the arrival of Cynthia, her dazzling stepsister, Molly finds her situation hard to accept. Intertwined with the story of the Gibsons is that of Squire Hamley and his two sons.

    What made the experience of listening to Wives and Daughters the most enjoyable?

    If you are a fan of Jane Austin or of wonderful readers, this is the book for you. Josephine Bailey, the narrator, brought each of the characters to life creating multiple drive-way moments. Loved it.
