    By synthesizing current research in the social sciences, Schwartz makes the counterintuitive case that eliminating choices can greatly reduce the stress, anxiety, and busyness of our lives. He offers eleven practical steps on how to limit choices to a manageable number, have the discipline to focus on the important ones and ignore the rest, and ultimately derive greater satisfaction from the choices you have to make.

    Would you try another book from Barry Schwartz and/or Ken Kliban?

    Not sure, it is a bit academic


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    No surprises


    What three words best describe Ken Kliban’s voice?

    Ok


    Do you think The Paradox of Choice needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope


    Any additional comments?

    Again, quite academic. Not sure that this book works as an audiobook.

    The Thank You Economy is about something big, something greater than any single revolutionary platform. It isn't some abstract concept or wacky business strategy—it's real, and every one of us is doing business in it every day, whether we choose to recognize it or not. It's the way we communicate, the way we buy and sell, the way businesses and consumers interact online and offline.

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

    Actually, the best part of this book is that Gary goes out of script several times, showing that he really believes in what he says in the book. The book is all about customer service and believing in it. It is entertaining, and although you may not agree on every point, it is still a book that can give you some thoughts about caring for your customer.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The going out of script


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Caring about the customer.


    Any additional comments?

    Loving the way that Gary went out of script.

    In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early 19th-century England. We watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a nave young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. We laugh as she begins her first clumsy training with nunchucks and katana swords and cry when her first blush with romance goes tragically awry.

    Dawn says: "Fantastic Narrator for a Fun Story!"
    "Too bad"
    Overall

    I was really looking forward to this listen, but unfortunately I had to stop it due to the actors reading. I am using headsets and the interpretation was too "screamish" I could not listen to it, because it gave me a headache. The first book I had to stop listening to unfortunately.
