  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Dan Heath, Chip Heath
    • Narrated By Charles Kahlenberg
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Story
    (881)

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better Than Made to Stick"
    "Interesting book, poor audio editing"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the book, not as much as Made to Stick, but it's worth the read. I'm disappointed in the audio editing (listened to format 4 on an iPhone) - varying levels of background noise (esp. chapter 5 or 6), painfully obvious edits where the reader mispronounced "IDEO" in chapter 7 (six or more references were obviously dubbed with difference background levels), etc. Aside from audio quality issues, there's a lot of numbering of thoughts/ideas which makes the audio format challenging.

  • Agnes Grey

    Story
    (45)

    Drawing on her experiences, Anne Bronte wrote her first novel out of a need to inform her contemporaries about the desperate position of unmarried, educated women driven to take up the only "respectable" career open to them - that of a governess.

    "Old recording of a classic story"

    Performance
    Story

    In addition to Performance and Story, I wish there was an additional measure which these recordings could be graded: Quality.

    Audio quality was good enough. Original "do overs" by the reader were barely noticeable, which is better than many audio books.

    One edit I wish was made was removal of "this is the end is side x," obvious marks of older media technology.

    There was a low frequency rumble throughout. I listened with ear buds on a cloudy day and kept pausing, thinking a storm was rolling in.
