    After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash.

    If you could sum up The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared in three words, what would they be?

    Enjoyable, entertaining, interesting.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alan... the story evolves around him.


    What does Steven Crossley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great narration... helped bring characters to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Easy to listen to over multiple sittings... mostly on an elliptical workout machine for me. The plot isn't critical, mostly just amusing and fun story.

  • A More Beautiful Question: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas

    In this groundbreaking book, journalist and innovation expert Warren Berger shows that one of the most powerful forces for igniting change in business and in our daily lives is a simple, underappreciated tool - one that has been available to us since childhood. Questioning - deeply, imaginatively, "beautifully" - can help us identify and solve problems, come up with game-changing ideas, and pursue fresh opportunities. So why are we often reluctant to ask "Why?"

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

    More useful content or interesting information.


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

    Disappointment... no sufficient informational value and not interesting to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    To me this seemed like another self-help book that could be condensed down to a few pages.
