    The locals in the southern Italian town where he lives call him Signor Farfalla - Mr. Butterfly - for he is a discreet gentleman who paints rare butterflies. His life is inconspicuous: mornings are spent brushing at a canvas, afternoons idling in the cafés, and evenings talking with his friend, the town priest, over a glass of brandy. Yet there are other sides to this gentleman’s life.... Part thriller, part character study, part drama of deceit and self-betrayal, The American shows Martin Booth at the very height of his powers.

    I tried, I really tried, but after several attempts at listening to this audio book I found myself unable to engage with the story and lulled into a sleep state.

    Would you listen to Maximum Achievement again? Why?

    I loved this book, it was easy to follow and easy to apply to my life. I plan on listening to again to really get all the tenants of his plan into my subconscious mind.


    Any additional comments?

    His voice wasn't the most feeling but it was comforting somehow.

    Now, for the first time, Martha Stewart shares her business knowledge and advice in this handbook for success. Tapping into her years of experience in building a thriving business, Martha will help readers identify their own entrepreneurial voice and channel their skills and passions into a successful business venture.

    Cary says: "Refreshing and Practical++++"
    "Disappointing, smug, uninspired"

    Would you try another book from Martha Stewart and/or Martha Stewart?

    no


    Has The Martha Rules turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no, just her


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    her voice was monotone, flat, unemotional, I feel like perhaps if I had read the book instead of listening to it, I might have gotten more out of it.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Martha Rules?

    The examples of business inspiration she chose to include in the book were somehow made boring. I would have liked to know more about how she was personally influenced by her mentors. There was nothing 'personal' about this book.
