    Fans of Max Brooks' original abridged recording of World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War will be thrilled to add this companion piece to their audio library. Offering listeners five hours of previously unrecorded content, World War Z: The Lost Files features 21 Hollywood A-list actors and sci-fi fan favorites performing stories not included in the original abridged edition.

    Get the Complete Edition, this one is only an abridged version and misses some details.

    Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO, ranked eighth on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business - has become one of America's most galvanizing leaders, and an icon for millions of women juggling work and family. In Lean In, she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with it at the highest levels throughout their lives.

    Would you listen to another book narrated by Elisa Donovan?

    No. Given the target, I would have thought a more mature voice would have lended itself better to the narration.


    Any additional comments?

    I support the ideas and thoughts of pushing women to reach form more and take more chances. In a lot of cases I found my self substituting "young people" or "minorities" for "wormen" and found there are some themes for women, minorities, and young people in the work force.

    The amount of detail was overwhelming, written and spoken like it was a thesis or study and while Mrs. Sandberg tried relating it back to her experiences, some analogies missed. I found myself noting places where the author did not, or does not, use her own advice.
