    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    I love Tina Fey and her work. In this Audiobook you can get to know her more as a person and learn about how she made it to become as successful as she is today. It is pretty inspiring, informational and entertaining all at the same time. She is a very good story teller and in the Audiobook you get to hear clips from the SNL skit that made her famous.

    Story
    (308)

    Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood - facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child's behalf - his casual questioning took on an urgency His quest for answers ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong.

    very important information to consider, the subject matter will make you question your ethics for a range of topics and force you to face the fact that one needs to be informed in order to make their decision.

    With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who's ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs who want to get out, and artists who don't want to starve anymore will all find valuable inspiration and guidance in these pages. It's time to rework work.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Im not sure if it was the voice of the Author or the voice of the narrator but some where I felt that sometimes the author would go past their expertise. I felt that the author “preached” about things that were very similar to the design process within Industry but did not give credit to Design at all. Also, I feel that the author used analogies with art that were not necessarily true. In general i think the advice was vey important however sometimes presumptuous.


    Did Mike Chamberlain do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I think he did a good job getting the emotion of the author in the reading.


    What did you take away from Rework that you can apply to your work?

    Most things, without a doubt, can be applied to everyones work process and work attitude.

  • Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World

    Story

    The Dalai Lama, at his most compassionate and outspoken, here elaborates and deepens his vision for the nonreligious way. Transcending the mere "religion wars", he outlines a system of secular ethics that gives tolerant respect to religion, those that ground ethics in a belief in God and an afterlife, and those that understand good actions as leading to better states of existence in future lives. And yet, with the highest level of spiritual and intellectual authority, the Dalai Lama makes a claim for what he calls a third way.

    What did you love best about Beyond Religion?

    I loved that the Dalai Lama who is known by the world to be one of the holiest men on earth is still openminded and able to see that ethics are separate from religion and that we need to gain a universal understanding of ethics.


    What did you like best about this story?

    He is very detailed in his approach to explain his point of view and he addresses every argument that would be put against him with purely logical responses.


    What does Martin Sheen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A wise voice to match to the character of the author.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No this book should be taken in little parts at a time because the philosophy is so rich that one should meditate on the concepts before continuing to the next chapter.
