    Whether you're self-employed, a middle manager, or a Fortune 500 executive, it's easy to get stuck in a humdrum life and only fantasize about "what could have been." Motivational speaker Steve Chandler helps you turn that way of thinking into "what will be."

    Gregg says: "Four stars for content, terrible to listen to"
    "Steve Chandler's content is wonderful"
    Overall

    I must admit that I do use a great product from enounce.com (2xAV) that allows me to speed up the playback on any audio up to 2.5 times. Steve's slow delivery would have cost him stars without it but at 1.5x normal speed, this audio is great! (Steve - talk faster!!!)

    I'm in sales management and listen to a steady stream of motivational tapes - Steve's content is exceptionally good, he's entertaining and I wish he'd put out more material (been looking for it!)

  • For Women Only: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men

    What's going on in a man's mind? From their early days, every woman has struggled to understand why males behave the way they do. Even long-married women who think they understand men have only scratched the surface. Beneath a man's rugged exterior is an even more rugged, unmapped terrain.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this video and was surprised to learn as much as I did about the male psyche! Over lunch with some friends, (ages 40, 50, and 63) they were as astonished at what I shared from this audiobook. It's not that it's new, we already thought we knew most of what this author shared. We just didn't REALLY "get it" completely. I'm not sure that I really "get it" even now, but it certainly has offered a paradigm shift in how I will relate to my son and husband.

    I did get a new perspective on the teasing that goes on in my extended family and will definately approach that differently. Some of the information did make me shake my head and sigh "oh brother!" but if it's true, and since I love the men in my life very much, I'll at least experiment with this new information a bit!

    If you are annoyed by any mention of God, then the author's references to faith and her prayer before the section on how men perceive their wives' efforts or lack thereof to take care of themselves will be a problem for you. For the rest of us, it's appropriate and natural (especially on that subject). This is not a religious lecture, the author mentions her faith in a conversational way, and while it's apparent her faith affects her analysis, it isn't obnoxious.

    This author does a great job with her material, the pace is good, she's a great narrator and the material is humorous and interesting. I'll be listening twice....

    Story

    On trial for assassinating her husband, the President of the United States, Beth MacMann hires an old flame from law school as her defense attorney. In this hilarious send-up of both politicos and lawyers, Buckley reestablishes himself as one of today's premiere satirists.

    Anthony says: "Excellent Word Play"
    "Absolutely wonderful! I loved it."
    Overall

    Great story, great narration. Didn't have a slow spot in it. Great plot, unpredictable. Audible, please give us more like this one!

    "It's who you know." "I don't have time." "I'm too old." "That's just the way I am." These crippling statements deny our power to change our lives. In this program, the celebrated author of 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself teaches you how to stop telling yourself these lies that prevent you from being your best.

    Sonscope says: "Excellent Content"
    "Motivational, funny, direct"

    Looking for inspiration to get moving? Steve Chandler has done an excellent job providing it!
