    The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking presents practical, lively, and inspiring ways for you to become more successful through better thinking. The idea is simple: You can learn how to think far better by adopting specific strategies. Brilliant people aren't a special breed--they just use their minds differently.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Bestselling author, speaker, and world-traveling success coach Jen Sincero cuts through the din of the self-help genre with her own verbal meat cleaver in You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. In this refreshingly blunt how-to guide, Sincero serves up twenty-seven bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, life-changing insights, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Only during a few moments.


    What was most disappointing about Jen Sincero’s story?

    The entire story as repetitive.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Often the quotes in beginning of each chapter.


    Was You are a Badass worth the listening time?

    Only for the quotes.


    Any additional comments?

    Has a few good moments but overall is often repetitive. She always goes back to love yourself. I also disagree that if you wish for a million bucks it will somehow manifest. The only way to really make money is to work for it. Yes she is right we need to reach higher goals by putting in the effort, but just wishing for the universe to bring me what i want is unrealistic.

    Wayward Pines, Idaho, is quintessential small-town America — or so it seems. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in search of two missing federal agents, yet soon is facing much more than he bargained for. After a violent accident lands him in the hospital, Ethan comes to with no ID and no cell phone. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into his colleagues’ disappearance turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he make contact with his family in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what’s the purpose of the electrified fences encircling the town? Are they keeping the residents in? Or something else out? Each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the world he knows, until he must face the horrifying possibility that he may never leave Wayward Pines alive…

    What was most disappointing about Blake Crouch’s story?

    The characters were hard to understand and follow.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Michael Garcia’s performances?

    The back and forth between characters.


    Any additional comments?

    The chapters were out of sync with what audible thought the chapter was and what the book said the chapter was.

    The stories were not held back by the horror genre. I enjoyed each story and they were gory and detailed.

  • Star Wars (Dramatized)

    This landmark production, perhaps the most ambitious radio project ever attempted, began when Star Wars creator George Lucas donated the story rights to an NPR affiliate. Writer Brian Daley adapted the film's highly visual script to the special demands and unique possibilities of radio, creating a more richly textured tale with greater emphasis on character development.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy this drama, and it gives you just enough to remind you of the original story. There are some off points that make it unique. They tell the story from key people from the movies, such as Luke Skywalker, and you will hear and experience points that did not occur in the movie but the story line follows the movie.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars (Dramatized)?

    Darth Vader first appears.


    What about Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels ’s performance did you like?

    Voices made the story feel more like Star Wars.

    Classic stories from the original masters of horror, including Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft and Charles Dickens. Read by horror icon Doug Bradley with music and sound design by Alistair Lock. This volume features William F Harvey's original undead hand story "The Beast with Five Fingers" that sparked many movies including Sam Raimi's "The Evil Dead".

    What would have made Doug Bradley's Spinechillers Audio Books Volume 1 better?

    These stories are old and boring. They are not scary at least one bit and lack any substance or action. I had a very difficult time following the stories because they are all so dry. I had higher expectations and was let down.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A more modern day horror story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The audio was sufficient.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This book was disappointing.
