  • A History of the American People

    Johnson's monumental history of the United States, from the first settlers to the Clinton administration, covers every aspect of American culture: politics, business, art, literature, science, society and customs, complex traditions, and religious beliefs. The story is told in terms of the men and women who shaped and led the nation and the ordinary people who collectively created its unique character.

    Mike From Mesa says: "A British conservative's view of American history."
    "Takes Forever, but Worth It!"
    Overall

    It takes a long time, but it's worth it. The downloading was difficult (the CD's didn't burn in perfect sequence -- next time I get something this huge I'll download one volume at a time instead of trying to do it all in one sitting).
    It kept me going for months but it was so interesting I couldn't abandon it. Johnson's approach is not strictly time-sequential: he goes from one theme to another within the framework of time sequence. It makes a very interesting, analytical journey through American history, generously laced with anecdotes and character analyses that I never heard before. As a Brit, he has insights we don't have, and takes a longrange view that is refreshing to hear.

    All of us are involved in selling every day. Whenever we present a product or a principle, inform a client, or instruct a child, we are engaging in the art of effective persuasion. Allow America's master of the art of selling to explain proven, practical sales techniques all of us can use every day.

    Story

    This is a recording of a seminar Ziglar delivered. The man is a character -- his personality comes bursting through no matter the format. He is chatty, and lively -- and really full of good advice. A treasure for somebody new to the sales business. I listened to it over and over, and it was painless. As I was listening, I felt it was just kind of talk-talk-talk -- but then I realized that I had learned a great deal when I had the next sales conference with my colleagues. I surprised myself by being more confident than they, and knowing how to handle an obstacle when they did not. And this was my only sales training!! Thank you Zig Ziglar.

    Brilliantly exploring today's cutting edge brain research, Mind Wide Open allows readers to understand themselves and the people in their lives as never before. Using a mix of experiential reportage, personal storytelling, and fresh scientific discovery, Steven Johnson describes how the brain works and how its systems connect to the day-to-day realities of individual lives.

    Chris says: "Fascinating, fascinating... but short"
    "Absolutely Fascinating"
    Overall

    Totally fascinating. An "easy read", but really riveting. Science made accessible through personal anecdote, and very memorable.
