  • Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 10 mins)
    • By Larry Bossidy, Ram Charan
    • Narrated By John Bedford Lloyd
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The audio that shows how to get the job done and deliver results...whether you're running an entire company or in your first management job. Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan, who Jack Welch calls "a great practitioner and an insightful theorist," collaborate on a "compelling business story of 'how to get it done.'"

    David says: "the triumph of bad design over sound contact"
    "Great book filled with brilliant insights"

    It is stunning how the authors have accurately assessed the difference between companies and managers who are effective at execution and which ones aren't. I had to agree with each premise and conclusion they offered. Then I ran out and bought copies to share with other business owners. Deifinitely a "must read" for anyone seeking results.

  • Dating Game

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Danielle Steel
    • Narrated By Sam Freed

    In her 57th best selling novel, Danielle Steel brilliantly chronicles the roller-coaster ride of dating the second time around - and tells a captivating story of the surprises one woman encounters when she's thrust into the terrifying, exhilarating world of the Dating Game.

    Jen says: "believe it, don't bother"
    "This book actually saved my sanity…"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dating Game to be better than the print version?

    When my marriage was falling apart, I honestly thought I was going insane. I was always the lucky one. I had a marriage that I thought would last forever. I never in my wildest dreams imagined that the old cliché of "a woman half my age" would be the unraveling of my life.

    But it happened.

    Fortunately, by some miracle I stumbled across the audio tape version of this book at my local library. It took me years to find the digital audiobook version--and when I finally did, I bought it and listened to it from a different, wiser perspective.

    In each instance, this book rekindled my joy, hope, and confidence. I would recommend it to any woman who's been hurt and needs the strength to crawl out of bed and carry on.

    It seems strange that an audiobook would give you that kind of strength, especially one that's just fiction, but ithis one works!

  • Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 27 mins)
    • By Sheryl Sandberg
    • Narrated By Elisa Donovan
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO, ranked eighth on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business - has become one of America's most galvanizing leaders, and an icon for millions of women juggling work and family. In Lean In, she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with it at the highest levels throughout their lives.

    Claudia says: "Make your life count - no matter what you do"
    "I was skeptical… But this book speaks truth."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm hitting 60. I'm a successful woman. I'm a multiple entrepreneur. I'm even the incoming president of my Rotary club.

    So I was skeptical. I couldn't imagine what this "child" who is my daughter's age could tell me about working in a world of men.

    But Sheryl Sandberg speaks truth. And the truth that she spoke much so that I found myself on the verge of tears at times, realizing that finally someone had the courage to verbalize the crap I've had to silently endure and the games I've had to surreptitiously play.

    So now I'm buying copies of the book for young female colleagues who are facing the same, same, SAME crap that I have struggled so hard and so long to overcome.

    Thank you Sheryl for being a strong, clear voice of assurance in the meandering wilderness of the business world. Where well-meaning men unwittingly demean us and vindictive men intentionally assault us.

    It's good to be reminded that each one of us is not alone in the daily flight to strike a balance between what we want and what the world expects of us.

  • Sacred and Profane: A Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By Faye Kellerman
    • Narrated By Mitchell Greenberg
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Los Angeles Police Detective Peter Decker had grown very close to Rina's young sons, Sammy and Jake, as he had to their mother, and he looked forward to spending a day of his vacation camping with the boys. A nice reprieve from the grueling work of a homicide cop - until Sammy stumbles upon a gruesome sight.

    Sheryl says: "Do not listen to in the car with children!"
    "Good, but not as good as Ritual Bath"
    If you could sum up Sacred and Profane in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, sad & troubling

    I'm a HUGE fan of Kellerman's Decker/Lazarus novels. And I greatly appreciate that sequels are often not as good as the original story. But the ending of this one seemed abrupt and though she wasn't quite certain what to do with it. However, it does move their love story along. But it isn't as though Mik and Honey provides any answers for how Decker managed to wrestle his religious doubts into submission.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sacred and Profane?

    When Decker showed up drunk at Rina's house and then blamed her for the outcome.

    What about Mitchell Greenberg’s performance did you like?

    Mitch Greenberg is a wizard with voices and accents. Really quite talented. And I greatly appreciate that he has been able to narrate the entire series. I really hate it when the narrator changes in the middle of a series and then the characters change entirely with the new interpretations by the new narrator. Please don't EVER switch from Mitch!!

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The death of the street kid who looked like Cindy.

  • The Ritual Bath: The First Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 14 mins)
    • By Faye Kellerman
    • Narrated By Mitchell Greenberg
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Detective Peter Decker of the LAPD is stunned when he gets the report. Someone has shattered the sanctuary of a remote yeshiva community in the California hills with an unimaginable crime. One of the women was brutally raped as she returned from the mikvah, the bathhouse where the cleansing ritual is performed.

    Eva Gannon says: "Good Read"
    "Learned a lot about the Jewish faith...Great story"
    Would you listen to The Ritual Bath again? Why?

    This was a great story. I really didn't know what to expect, but it pulled me into the series in a very enticing manner by teaching me about a community I never actually understood. Even better, I was able to empathize and identify with the subjects as people, not as mere story characters!

    What does Mitchell Greenberg bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I really apprecieated hearing the Jewish pronunciation of the many Yiddish terms in the book. I would likely have not guessed the correct pronunciation if I had simply read a printed book on my own.

    Any additional comments?

    Try it. You'll like it!

  • The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 18 mins)
    • By Timothy Ferriss
    • Narrated By Ray Porter

    The 4 Hour Work Week explains what a lifestyle entrepreneur is and why you should want to become one. It teaches you how to "kill" your job and design a life, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to replace your dreams with goals, and more. Listeners can lead a rich life by working only four hours a week, freeing up the rest of their time to spend it living the lives they want.

    Tim says: "Some good ideas but, not so sure. . ."
    "Great resources and action items"

    Tim Ferris has constructed a book that smart people will put into action before the whole concept implodes upon itself. What he has to say about outsourcing is absolutely true TODAY. However, it's like the idea of a completely service-based society: if everyone makes money by washing other people's clothes, eventually everyone will starve to death. You see, he says outsource your work to make big bucks. But if everyone ends up outsourcing, who's left to purchase what you're outsourcing? Someone has to actually grow or manufacture or build or do SOMETHING physical that will only be outsource-able to a point. It's really the dilemma the US is facing with illegal aliens: they are needed to do the physical work at "poverty" wages because no one else is willing to--until those "illegals" end up doing better than many of the citizens that consider themselves too "good" to labor in the fields and sweatshops. In short, Ferris delivers great resources, but he also makes no apologies for being shockingly self-centered (note how he became a world kick-boxing champion) nor for his position that rule-bending (if not outright lying) is essential in the process of getting ahead. That attitude bothers me, personally...but it probably resonates with much of Gen X and Y. Hence, I gave this book a one-star demerit for morals.

  • Made to Stick

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By Chip Heath, Dan Heath
    • Narrated By Charles Kahlenberg
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better The Second Time"
    "Absolutely on target!"

    This book is a "must read" for anyone in business today. Its communication insights are absolutely on target.

    Just buy it.

  • Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By David Allen
    • Narrated By David Allen

    From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done has the potential to transform the way you work - and the way you experience work. At any level of implementation, David Allen's entertaining and thought-provoking advice shows you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.

    Blue Skies Ahead says: "Get the "Paper Book" instead."
    "Excellent book!"

    I first noticed this book while standing in line to board a plane. I asked the guy, "Is it any good?" He looked me dead in the eye and gave an emphatic, "Oh yeah." I have to agree. It really is a "MUST READ" book for anyone serious about communicating ideas.

  • The Irresistible Offer: How to Sell Your Product or Service in Three Seconds or Less

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Mark Joyner
    • Narrated By Mark Joyner

    The marketing methods of the past are losing effectiveness as consumers are getting smarter and smarter and have less and less time. What is needed is a new way of doing business, a method that is simultaneously socially responsible and far more effective than "old marketing". This new way is The Irresistible Offer.

    J. D. Mosley-Matchett says: "Adolescent and irritating"
    "Adolescent and irritating"

    Talk about sexual obsession. The author's non-stop gotta-get-laid commentaries rapidly overshadowed the message he was trying to deliver. Save your money. There are other authors who have more to offer without resorting to the use of offending language.
