    Overall

    i had always enjoyed the story of apple and Microsoft. another video that people should watch is Pirates of Silicon Valley. However this audio book was great. it had covered allot of details i was not sure i knew about Steve. However i was a bit shocked that they did not mention the whole UNIX and OS revamp journey. All in all it was a great listen!

    Where does Consulting 101 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    well this book was a "just in time" style reading since i am just about to enter into this field after 13 years in banking industry


    If you’ve listened to books by Lew Sauder before, how does this one compare?

    n/a but would be inclined to listen and read definitely


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

    i never heard of Jeff except in this book! honestly Jeff if your reading this - do more of the business and international trade books with your voice! its was just the right balance and the performance was immaculate for such a mundane subject matter such as consulting


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    yes i did! i was very very scared about how to approach the idea of business consulting with the big leagues! the sturdy performance here really gave me confidence!


    Any additional comments?

    this book had it all for a NEWBEE or an old dog learning new tricks! best part is the CASE STUDIES! i immediately related to all the stories since "as a client" for 13 years, it was refreshing to see the actual other side! and now i am like more ready to be part of that world! thanks Jeff Lew!

    What made the experience of listening to Invaluable: The Secret to Becoming Irreplaceable the most enjoyable?

    how human and real it is! despite our corp. this and corp. that mentality! which is very very cold! this man cuts through it with a "human touch"


    What other book might you compare Invaluable: The Secret to Becoming Irreplaceable to and why?

    none that i can come across! the only thing i would recommend is to check out the same author who runs a course online by Dave Crenshaw


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

    i cant say that i have - but he is a soothing human voice as he narrates


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

    this would be a brilliant educational movie drama or something in that line which show modern day workers, entrepreneur and everyone in between how markets and things around us are changing so fast but at the same time, the "human element" in all of them remain the same!


    Any additional comments?

    love the life altering books and stories such as this

  • New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer

    Bill Maher first came to national attention as the host of the hit Comedy Central and ABC-TV program Politically Incorrect, where he offered a combustible mixture of irreverence and acerbic humor that helped him to garner a loyal following, as well as a reputation for being a hilarious provocateur.

    Scott says: "Funny and true but also Annoying"
    "273 play count on my iTunes!"
    Overall

    i should have written this long time ago! Bill is my favorite News Person! if you want to find out what really is going on, you must listen to bill. He is the perfect prot?g? of George Carlin! You can feel the same reminisce of George in most of the solid material that Mr Maher places. You can get a pulse of what really is going on in America. Please don't forget to check out the HBO Special Real Time. He is a real American rebel! As the slogan goes true, fair, and balanced for real; sorry mainstream "news" you just don't get it! Did i mention it makes a great gift for any conformist in your life!
