    The secret for creating magic in our careers, our organizations, and our lives is simple: outstanding leadership, the kind that inspires employees, delights customers, and achieves extraordinary business results. No one knows more about this kind of leadership than Lee Cockerell, the man who ran Walt Disney World Resort operations for over a decade.

    Story

    This book does a great job of helping business leaders learn how to lead groups. It is less effective for people that are not in leadership positions.

  • I Am America (And So Can You!)

    What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes this as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's.

    Ty says: "Funny, but disappointing."
    "Colbert- enough said"

    Colbert is always entertaining to me. If you are unsure, watch a little of his show. If you like him, get this- if not, skip it.

    Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

    C. Acevedo says: "I really enjoy listening over and over again."

    Story

    I liked the book, and it gave me some really interesting things to think about. I do not agree with the author on everything. It was very cool to hear things from a different point of view. The book helped me to see a different point of view on some issues and that is ALWAYS valuable.

  • The Referral Engine: Teaching Your Business to Market Itself

    The power of glitzy advertising and elaborate marketing campaigns is on the wane; word- of-mouth referrals are what drive business today. People trust the recommendation of a friend, family member, colleague, or even stranger with similar tastes over anything thrust at them by a faceless company. Most business owners believe that whether customers refer them is entirely out of their hands. But science shows that people can't help recommending products and services to their friends....

    Story

    I loved this book so much that I am also buying a print copy that I can mark up! I am developing iPad presentations for myself and other Real Estate agents and much of our business is referral. This books helps line up how to stand out so that you will get referred- I can't wait to put it into practice.

    What do Starbucks and JetBlue and KrispyKreme and Apple and DutchBoy and Kensington and Zespri and Hard Candy have that you don't? How do they continue to confound critics and achieve spectacular growth, leaving behind former tried-and true brands to gasp their last? Face it, the checklist of tired P's marketers have used for decades to get their product noticed - Pricing, Promotion, Publicity, to name a few - aren't working anymore.

    Story

    This book helps listeners look at social marketing and the importance of having a really great product. It has less explanation of how to market, and a greater focus on the importance of really developing your product.

    For more than 30 years, Richard P. Feynman's three-volume Lectures on Physics has been known worldwide as the classic resource for students and professionals alike. Ranging from the most basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as Einstein's general relativity, superconductivity, and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight.

    Jarrod says: "Why aren't there more teachers like this?"

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.
