    Now a modern classic, this story of two boys' friendship at an exclusive New Hampshire prep school as it parallels the inescapable and escalating atmosphere of World War II, is intense and engaging to the last word.

    Story

    I listened to this because my daughter had to read it for eight grade. I probably would not have read it if otjerwise, but I am glad that I did. The narrator was very good and the story kept me engaged.

  • The Genius in All of Us: Why Everything You've Been Told about Genetics, Talent and IQ is Wrong

    Story

    With irresistibly persuasive vigor, David Shenk debunks the long-standing notion of genetic giftedness, and presents dazzling new scientific research showing how greatness is in the reach of every individual. DNA does not make us who we are. Forget everything you think you know about genes, talent, and intelligence, he writes. In recent years, a mountain of scientific evidence has emerged suggesting a completely new paradigm: not talent scarcity, but latent talent abundance.

    Story

    I read this book from the perspective of 'parent' and found it quite enlightening. My children are involved in activities outside of school and this book gave me some sense of what math clubs, competitive soccer, piano, and other activities will do for my children as well as what they will not do. It left me with the final query of whether I would even want to wish genius upon my children.

    It is 1875, and Ann Eliza Young has recently separated from her powerful husband, Brigham Young, prophet and leader of the Mormon Church. Expelled and an outcast, Ann Eliza embarks on a crusade to end polygamy in the United States. A rich account of a family's polygamous history is revealed, including how a young woman became a plural wife.

    Story

    I loved this book. I learned a lot about Mormons and polygamy reading this. This book contains two parallel stories, one of modern day polygamy and one of the beginnings of polygamy in Utah and how it became illegal. I live in Utah, but am not a native, so I found this absolutely fascinating. I highly recommend it to anyone as it is a riveting story.

    This is the story of how success happens. It is told through the lives of one composite American couple, Harold and Erica - how they grow, push forward, are pulled back, fail, and succeed. Distilling a vast array of information into these two vividly realized characters, Brooks illustrates a fundamental new understanding of human nature.

    Story

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. I almost stopped listening in the first part because I thought the story was dull and uninspiring, but I was determined to get through it and I am very glad I did. Have patience with it. It pulls together many scientific / sociological studies into one fictional story. I have thought about it and brought it up in conversation many times since reading it.

    I got this for my son (9), who is learning to deal with anxiety. I played it for him tonight and he was very excited and fell right off to sleep without a worry. What a gift for all of us.

    I think this book makes some good points, but it is very dated and all of the examples are about men. I think there are some better books out there that are more modern and inspiring.

    A vocation arises, not as a response to external forces, but authentically from within your own body. Dr. Rick Jarow has helped thousands of frustrated job-seekers open to their intuition, transform their values into action, and answer their true calling - instead of settling for a paycheck. The job you were born to do will unfold in time - take the time first to listen to this advice.

    J. Yoon says: "Best book I've read on internal career calibration"
    "Very helpful and insightful"
    Overall

    I learned a lot about myself listening to this book. It asks questions that really make you think about what you are doing and why. I was on the verge of making some big mistakes and this book helped me think through it all and look in a direction more suited to my interests. I highly recommend it if you are trying to figure out what you want to do with your life and aren't really sure. I am a mom of two and this inspires me to nurture my children's passions so that some day they will find meaningful employment.
