  • Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else

    Story
    (1259)

    One of the most popular Fortune articles in many years was a cover story called "What It Takes to Be Great." Geoff Colvin offered new evidence that top performers in any field - from Tiger Woods and Winston Churchill to Warren Buffett and Jack Welch - are not determined by their inborn talents. Greatness doesn't come from DNA but from practice and perseverance honed over decades.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "I've re-listened 3 times"
    Overall

    I have listened to "The Help" three times now and enjoyed it just as much the 3rd time as the 1st. Catching additional bits of detail each time. The narrators are absolutely great and very easy to listen to and understand.

    A Zuni Indian boy dies in a bizarre ritual slaying - and his best friend, a Navajo youth, is missing. Navajo police lieutenant Joe Leaphorn tracks the friend from Zuni village to Navajo hogan, from anthropological dig to hippie commune, across the desert of New Mexico and Arizona.

    James says: "Pace was off"
    "wished it was longer"
    Overall

    Always enjoy these books - just wish they were longer.
