  • No Excuses!: The Power of Self-Discipline for Success in Your Life

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By Brian Tracy
    • Narrated By Brian Tracy

    Most people think success comes from good luck or enormous talent, but many successful people achieve their accomplishments in a simpler way: through self-discipline. Brian Tracy knows this firsthand. He didn’t graduate from high school, and after working for a few years as a laborer, he realized he had limited skills and a limited future. But through the power of self-discipline, he changed his life.

    Steve says: "Highly Motivational!"
    "New to Brian Tracy - Recommend Highly"

    I have been an Audible Gold member since 2003, and have downloaded over a 120 titles, with perhaps one-third of those in the self-development category. Being new to Brian Tracy, any re-purposed content was not an issue for me. I can simply say that his message whacked me in the forehead with the colloqial "4x4"...I recognized how I've let others direct my behavior, (especially in my career) and how "taking the path of least resistance" has led me exactly to where I am at this point in my life. disapointed, disaffected, and blaming others. More importantly, I can see how adopting a more disciplined approach, even with the smallest aspects of day-to-day life can lead me step by step toward the realization of my goals - goals I set myself based on a new-found awareness of what is most important to me. His delivery didn't pose a challenge for me - he sets a very measured, but earnest tone that is compelling and conversational.

  • The Greatest Aces

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 30 mins)
    • By Edward H. Sims
    • Narrated By Justin Hecht

    Top World War II aces of the RAF, USAAF, and the Luftwaffe recall the greatest aerial missions in this thrilling program. There is Douglas Bader, one of the best of the RAF fighter pilots despite 2 artificial legs, Adolf Galland of the Luftwaffe, who, subsequent to being shot down in France one morning, took off in another Messerschmitt that afternoon, another German ace, Hans-Joachim Marseille, the young "Pilot of Africa" who would steal into the British fighters' own formations to down several Hurricanes before the enemy could react, and Robert S. Johnson, the American who heroically defended Liberator and Flying Fortress formations.

    Brooke P. Anderson says: "Excellent"
    "Topic Soars, Narrator Snores"

    An early production for the audiobook, this release fails to achieve the same standard that we've come to expect in contemporary releases. The narrator, while earnest in tone and inflection, conveys none of the excitement that would ordinarily abound in such vivid subject matter. His style is not compelling at all, but rather matter of fact and undramatic. However, if you are a true fan of WW2 fighter aviation, you will carry on and through sheer pluck and fortitude, make your way through this work. Tally ho!
