  • Networking for People Who Hate Networking: A Field Guide for Introverts, the Overwhelmed, and the Underconnected

    Devora Zack, an avowed introvert and a successful consultant who speaks to thousands of people every year, found that most networking advice books assume that to succeed you have to become an extrovert. Or at least learn how to fake it. Not at all. There is another way. This audiobook shatters stereotypes about people who dislike networking. They’re not shy or misanthropic. Rather, they tend to be reflective - they think before they talk. They focus intensely on a few things rather than broadly on a lot of things. And they need time alone to recharge.

    Would you try another book from Devora Zack and/or Karen Saltus?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Devora Zack again?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration was disturbing. I truly dislike overenthusiastic narration that makes a book sound as never ending commercial.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was truly disappointed. I have expected something useful instead of stupid quizes and self-promotion of the author that was the main plot.

    When the young girl washed up on their shore, no one knew she had been a Vessel. That she had carried a Product. That it had been carved from her belly. Stolen. Claire had had a son. She was supposed to forget him, but that was impossible. When he was taken from their community, she knew she had to follow. And so her journey began. But here in this wind-battered village Claire is welcomed as one of their own. In the security of her new home, she is free and loved. She grows stronger.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Bernadette Dunne’s performances?

    The narrator should find another job - I only went through the story as there was no alternative and I love the series.

    Farm animals have been disappearing from our fields as the production of food has become a global industry. We no longer know for certain what is entering the food chain and what we are eating - as the UK horsemeat scandal demonstrated. We are reaching a tipping point as the farming revolution threatens our countryside, health, and the quality of our food wherever we live in the world.

    Grazyna says: "Excellent insight of industrial farming"

    Any additional comments?

    The authors explain in an interesting way methods used nowadays to provide endless meat resources to the supermarkets. It is an interesting story of the industry and how it affects communities worldwide providing facts and research based evidence of the influence that modern farming has on people and planet.
    It gives a food for thought on how the world is changing and why we should think twice about the origin of the food we are eating.

    Corban Addison’s riveting suspense debut pulls back the veil on one of the most profound human rights issues of our day: human trafficking. After their coastal town in India is wiped out by a tsunami, two sisters are abducted and sold into the global underground sex trade. Meanwhile, half a world away, a D.C. attorney makes it his life’s work to end this dehumanizing practice.
