    Nestled among Seattle's skyscrapers, The Zephyr Holdings Building is a bleak rectangle topped by an orange-and-black logo that gives no hint of Zephyr's business. Lack of clarity, it turns out, is Zephyr's defining characteristic. The floors are numbered in reverse. No one has ever seen the CEO or glimpsed his office on the first (i.e., top) floor. Yet every day people clip on their ID tags, file into the building, sit at their desks, and hope that they're not about to be outsourced.

    I loved this book and the characters. It definitely held my interest. If you have ever worked for a corporation that just didn’t make sense it is a book for you.

  • Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    Would you try another book from Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent and/or Dean Gallagher?

    No, the book was very preachy and not what I expected.


    Any additional comments?

    I am believe in a lot of possibilities but this was not believable to me. First off it is more about the father and how he interprets the story. Second even if the son went to heaven and saw some of the things that he talks about I think others were his imagination. How many 4 year olds make up stories and here is one child that the parents believe everything he says. What child wouldn’t create this place when every time they speak of it they have their parents’ total attention and belief?

    Pak Jun Do is the haunted son of a lost mother - a singer “stolen” to Pyongyang - and an influential father who runs Long Tomorrows, a work camp for orphans. There the boy is given his first taste of power, picking which orphans eat first and which will be lent out for manual labor. Recognized for his loyalty and keen instincts, Jun Do comes to the attention of superiors in the state, rises in the ranks, and starts on a road from which there will be no return.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This story was just not for me. Listened for about 5 hours and just could not get into the book. My book club was reading it and I guess that it was pretty much divided between liked it and hated it. I just don't have time to listen to something that would take me so long to get into.

    These 100 eye-opening ways to create wealth are drawn from the author's successful careers, with many touching personal stories as well as stories and examples from the hundreds of clients these master coaches have advised. This book is chock full of ways to make money, deepen life's pleasure, increase personal wage-earning power, and start fresh entrepreneurial ideas right at home.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book was a great review of some of the ways to keep yourself on a positive track. The information is not new or earth shattering but a great review and reminder of some of the basics. Reminding us that taking calculated risks, following are dreams and hard work can pay off. I need this reminder every now and then and this is a great way to get it. I listened to a few a day to get my head in the right place.

  • Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear

    Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.They're talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a 100-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Can you imagine your life without fear?

    MJ says: "Tried and True"
    "Not about fear but about the bible"
    Overall

    This is basically a book about the Bible and Christ. If you are a Christian, strong believing then you might like it. If you are looking for a book about overcoming fear and living to your full potential you might want to skip it.
