  • Books That Have Made History: Books That Can Change Your Life

    • ORIGINAL (18 hrs and 30 mins)
    • By The Great Courses
    • Narrated By Professor Rufus J. Fears

    Why do "Great Books" continue to speak to us hundreds and even thousands of years after they were written? Can they deepen our self-knowledge and wisdom? Are our lives changed in any meaningful way by the experience of reading them?Tackle these questions and more in these 36 engaging lectures. Beginning with his definition of a Great Book as one that possesses a great theme of enduring importance, noble language that "elevates the soul and ennobles the mind," and a universality that enables it to "speak across the ages," Professor Fears examines a body of work that offers extraordinary wisdom to those willing to receive it.

    Kristi Richardson says: "A course that will open you to new ideas."
    "I think the author is a presuppositionalist"
    Any additional comments?

    Most of the book is a decent book report on classic books, but then bam! It’s now all about his god. Then you get some more decent book report, then bam! It’s because the bible says so. Many of the arguments he gives for it being his god have been refuted many times. It was way to distracting from the book report when he does this. I could only get half way through Meditations by Marcus Aurelius before turning it off and removing it.

  • Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Pamela Meyer
    • Narrated By Karen Saltus
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    People - friends, family members, work colleagues, salespeople - lie to us all the time. Daily, hourly, constantly. None of us is immune, and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day. Now there’s something we can do about it. Liespotting links three disciplines - facial recognition training, interrogation training, and a comprehensive survey of research in the field - into a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business leaders detect deception....

    Joshua says: "About 1/4 of the book is about Lie Spotting"
    "Title doesn't match book."
    What did you love best about Liespotting?

    How to look for suspicious behavior that may indicate lying.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most: The couple of chapters that were about how to detect if somebody may be lying. Least: The lists of areas you could be deceived in corporate life.

    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Watch peoples overall mannerisms and not just in the moment.

    Any additional comments?

    The title should be changed to "Corporate areas of trust, and a couple of ways to tell if somebody may be lying to you." I was expecting the book to go into more detail about lie spotting.
