It is an easy listen and is one of the most important books on Photography
Hmm.. it is a selection of essays. The author (not a photographer) was able to write about how photography has influenced the world and been influenced
She has an easy voice to listen to
Photography's influence on the world
I had read this book years ago and recently ran across it on audible.
The book is a quick refresher course on what management is and how to be a good manager delivered by the cast of Winnie the Pooh.
The length makes it perfect to listen to on a short flight or even sitting around the airport.
The variety of players covered from stars to people most folks have never heard of
The author obviously loves the minor leagues and was able to convey that through the stories of the players, managers, and umpires he covered
I was amazed at how few umpires that make it to AAA ever make the big leagues. I also never realized that if they don't get promoted in a few years they are basically fired by MLB.
Makes me appreciate what they go through to become big-league umps, just like the players.
Yes, I'd listen to it again as I'm sure there are parts that would sink in better on a second listen.
Any of the WPA writers guides to the states.
Easy to listen to. Good pronunciation
yes. I found the history of the project fascinating and a great way to learn about food history in the US. I'm surprised how many foods which were common in the late 1930s are unknown today and how much food in the US has become homogenized over the last 70 years.
I'm a big Hemingway fan so this sounded like a good choice to listen to on some road trips for work.
Its not really a Hemingway Bio, but it uses his famous fishing boat (now exiled in Cuba) to tell the stories of some of the people who came into his life and also offer insight into his life.
The narrator has an easy to listen to voice and I found this book a quick listen even at its length.
The GRB is one of the classics in travel books. If you are a railroad buff like me, it is almost "required" listening
Theroux has a way to making the people he meets on the trains into unforgettable characters
He has an easy to listen to voice. In my mind he is the voice of Theroux now, even though I don't know what he really sounds like =)
Umm.. a little too long for that =) Great for a road-trip
Yes, I found it fascinating. The characters are engaging.
How you experience the change in the author's attitude towards the Chinese and living there during his time as a teacher.
Easy to listen to voice for narration
The tidbits of daily life in a completely different culture. Learning more about what has happened to the author since his first book
Any of Hessler's other books on his China experience
I found it gave me a new appreciation for what life in China must be like.
The descriptions about train travel around the world
The author describes the good and bad of different travel experiences.
He has an easy to listen to voice
I found myself enjoying the descriptions of the different folks he met on trains. You always find characters
It's basically a travelogue of the authors train rides. If you have wanted to ride the trains of the world, here is what to expect along with some history of famous events mixed in.
History, Railroads, Culture
I enjoyed the history of depots and the agents who lived there
Not really in characters in this one
How railroads created America
Great history of railroads and life in America.
