    There's an old saying: if you eat a live frog first thing each morning, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using "eat that frog" as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also the one that might have the greatest positive impact on your life, Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day.

    This audio books has me torn between 5 star and 4 stars. This is the first time I have heard anything from Brian Tracy and it won't be the last- Very simple in nature and it combines a large number of helpful topic in an easy to remember format. I have listen to it have a dozen times and it still hasn't gotten old.

    In Storm Assault , the eighth book of the Star Force series, the story moves in a new direction. Massive fleets are built by both Star Force and the Imperials - but there is a third player in the game: the Blues.

    What made the experience of listening to Storm Assault the most enjoyable?

    You really believe that Star Force was clearly out matched and out gun the whole book- which is a fun angle to explore and that mastermind that is Kyle Riggs has some serious flaws which could lead to the end of Star Force.


    What other book might you compare Storm Assault to and why?

    Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet series has a similar leading protagonist and style of writing


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

    Mark Boyett is solid reader- I have listen to all of the BV Larson books that he has read in this series


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    A couple of spots in the booked moved me- I was so caught up in the the story by the end I had a hard time putting the headphones down.


    Any additional comments?

    Great series. The story line is getting to a point that needs some refreshing but I can't want to see what happens next.

    Captain Eric Weston and his crew encounter horrors, wonders, monsters, and people; all of which will test their resolve, challenge their abilities, and put in sharp relief what is necessary to be a hero. A first-rate military-science-fiction epic that combines old-school space opera and modern storytelling, Into the Black: Odyssey One is a riveting, exhilarating adventure with vivid details, rich mythology, and relentless pacing.

    C. Hartmann says: "Great, Solid Military SciFi / Evolving Space Opera"
    "One of the best Military SciFi books to date"

    I have listen to and read a lot of great Military Science Fiction books out there- From Orson Scott Card to Robert Heinlein to Jack Campbell. I look for stories that have some military strategy in them, some science, some philosophy and a human element. I want the hero's to be heroic with out seeming super human. I like the characters or leaders to be more like Richard Dean Anderson's character in SGI- and these characters do. Evan Currie has done it all in this book.
    Benjamin Darci does a great job telling the story
