    Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This fascinating and persuasive program argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities - emotional intelligence - that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life.

    "Book Good, Narrator Torture!!!"
    Overall

    A great book that was completely made torturous with a terrible computer-like narration.

    Built To Last, the defining management study of the 90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

    Anaxamaxan says: "Good info, over-the-top narration"
    "How to book for abolishing complacency."
    Overall

    This is simply a must read for any leader who struggles with taking their team to a new level of productivity. The hardest part of going from good to great is when no one else has done what you are trying to do. This book provides some very simple principles giving you a roadmap to help you and your team understand what should be your main focus.

    >. Orange Beach, Alabama is a simple town filled with simple people. But like all humans on the planet, the good folks of Orange Beach have their share of problems - marriages teetering on the brink of divorce, young adults giving up on life, business people on the verge of bankruptcy, as well as the many other obstacles that life seems to dish out to the masses. Fortunately, when things look the darkest - a mysterious man named Jones has a miraculous way of showing up.

    Overall

    A great book and to get us to see things in a larger context. It inspired me to become more empathetic and patient with others.

  • End Self Sabotage: Hypnosis, NLP, and Guided Meditation Techniques

    Self-sabotage behavior is when there is no logical or rational explanation for why you can't do the things you want to do or why you can't have the things you want to have. It's not a lack of desire, skills, knowledge or effort that hold you back. Rather, there's something inside you that's stronger than your desire and it sabotages your efforts to do the things you want to do and have the things you want to have

    Overall

    I have listened to hundreds of audio books and at least 20 different hypnosis books, but the audio quality on this one was terrible. In the first and second hypnosis parts I couldn't understand what was even being said. Please save your money and buy another title.

    Much like the best-selling books by Og Mandino, this unique narrative is a blend of entertaining fiction, allegory, and inspiration. Storyteller Andy Andrews gives a front-row seat for one man's journey of a lifetime. David Ponder has lost his job and the will to live.

    "Success Formula in Story Format"
    Overall

    Gosh, I've probably read dozens of book specifically geared toward giving one nuggets of data or a formula for achieving personal goals and success. I liked this one because it gave a bit of history and demonstrated the idea that great leaders from ages past achieved greatness in the way they handled tough situations. The story was far-fetched but it served the purpose of providing a good success formula without the bland, abstract format. I recommend it!

    "dissatisfied with narrator"
    Overall

    I love this author.The narrator is horrible, sounds like he is about ready to go to sleep. The quality of this recording was sub-par, I had to turn the volume up to the max to be able to hear but then my ears hurt cuz it is so loud. Some of the text was repeated, the narrator actually state the same sentence twice on several occasions--and I have only listened to half of the book.
