    In Radical Honesty, Dr. Blanton coaches us on how to have lives that work, how to have relationships that are alive and passionate, and how to create intimacy where none exists. As we have been taught by the philosophical and spiritual sources of our culture for thousands of years, from Plato to Nietzsche, from the Bible to Emerson, the truth shall set you free.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one. The book contains no real story. All there is is "tell he truth". That's it, I told you the whole content of the book. Plus, the narration is really bad, don't know how audible permits this. Not always the author is the best narrator. You can hear him pauisng and stopping, breathing. Volume goes up and down, etc.


    What was most disappointing about Brad Blanton’s story?

    That there is no story at all. Or that all can be said in "tell the truth to everyone". That's it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Brad Blanton’s performances?

    Not at all. Waste of money and time. I didn't finish the book, I tried to listen to it until chapter 11. I couldn't more, it was so boring. Once I listen to it during insomnia; it worked fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy it.

  • Boring Meetings Suck: Get More Out of Your Meetings, or Get Out of More Meetings

    There's a big dull elephant in the boardroom: this meeting! Most of the millions of meetings held in the world today are a monumental waste of time and talent. Worse still, most of the so-called solutions and books for boring meetings are twice as boring. Boring Meetings Suck provides tips and tactics to deliver "Get-In, Get-It-Done, or Get-Out" style meetings, while also tackling what most prefer to avoid; that you don't have to BE in charge of a meeting to TAKE charge of a meeting.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If I have found useful recommendations to avoid boring meetings. But no, the book is full of useless tips that in the real world no one would apply. For example, remove the chairs of the meeting room. Verify the dimensions of the meeting room. Prepare for meetings (the day is full of meetings, and I should spend more time preparing for them?).


    Has Boring Meetings Suck turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I have not read 1000 of books on meetings, but this one really sucks.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end (which I didn't hear because it was too boring, I stop hearing it at the beginning of the last chapter).


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Boring Meetings Suck?

    All that is useless, that means, an important part of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Enough said.

    Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

    If you could sum up Start with Why in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, applicable, relevant


    What did you like best about this story?

    The message. Start with why are you doing what u are doing. It means passion to do something and not just to be there "for the money"; start with why and things will be easier and people will follow.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Sinek’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The message is repetitive. He could have written in half the pages and still be relevant.

    Lead and succeed like the world's greatest business innovator. There's no accounting for Steve Jobs' mind. He just didn't think the way the rest of the world does. Regarded by many as the most innovative and influential business leader of our time, Jobs was a visionary beyond compare. He was why Apple is Apple and everyone else is everyone else. We can't transform ourselves into Steve Jobs. How he put his ideas into action, however, was systematic, efficient, focused, and smart. And this you can do.

    Im a fan of Steve Jobs (not Apple). I think we can learn something from this man. All his achievements are no mistake. And the book describes various situations about what Steve did and what he would do.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Steve

    In this disquieting cyber thriller, Joseph Menn takes readers into the murky hacker underground, traveling the globe from San Francisco to Costa Rica and London to Russia. His guides are California surfer and computer whiz Barrett Lyon and a fearless British high-tech agent. Through these heroes, Menn shows the evolution of cyber-crime from small-time thieving to sophisticated, organized gangs, who began by attacking corporate websites but increasingly steal financial data from consumers.

    What disappointed you about Fatal System Error?

    It was difficult for me to follow the story in audio. Actually, didn't complete the udiobook to the end. Many names, places to follow in audio. Maybe it's different in a written book for u to read.


    What could Joseph Menn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    For audio, it's better to have less characters (names, places). To easy follow.


    What aspect of Christian Rummel’s performance would you have changed?

    The audio was ok.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Just couldn't follow the story, so it was (for me) confusing. I listen to books while driving, so maybe that's why difficult to follow. If u read doing other activities where u can concentrate more on the story maybe u'll find it ok.

    In iLeadership, Jay Elliot gives the listener the opportunity of seeing Steve Jobs as only his closest associates have ever seen him, and to learn what has made him - and the mystique of his management style - capable of creating tools so extraordinary that they have remade three industries and have transformed the way we create, consume, and communicate with each other.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Steve Jobs Way to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I liked to hear the story rather then read it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well, everything. Im a Steve Jobs fan so my review is subjective. Present me with any Steve story and it's difficult for me not to like it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ones where the author speaks about his relation with Steve and some anecdotes.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Steve's way.


    Any additional comments?

    Again, I am a fan of Steve Jobs and Apple. If u like his life, opinions and view of life and business, I think u'l like it like me. If not, u anyway may find it interesting.

  • Liars and Outliers: Enabling the Trust that Society Needs to Thrive

    How does society function when you can't trust everyone? When we think about trust, we naturally think about personal relationships or bank vaults. That's too narrow. Trust is much broader, and much more important. Nothing in society works without trust. It's the foundation of communities, commerce, democracy, everything. In this insightful and entertaining book, Schneier weaves together ideas from across the social and biological Science & Technology’s to explain how society induces trust.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if u are interested in trust in society.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Liars and Outliers: Enabling the Trust that Society Needs to Thrive?

    The history of trust from (very) ancient times.


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

    From the audio, I do understand his English (Im a Spanish speaker), so that's enough for me to say the audio is just fine.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Do you trust me?


    Any additional comments?

    It's different from other Schneier books (Secrets and Lies, Beyond Fear) and he concentrates only in trust (a part of security). So it was interesting to know about this field, but it was not (for me) THE Book like the ones I just mentioned. Anyway, nice audio book.

  • God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

    In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris' recent best-seller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story is good, but the author is not a reader, it's very hard to understand him. Why is Audible allowing that the authors read their books if they are not good for that?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christopher Hitchens’s performances?

    Yes, but if Christopher is the one who reads the book, I would never buy abother AudioBook from him.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment because of the audio. Very hard to understand, terrible in fact.


    Any additional comments?

    No, my point is clear by now.
