  • Great Railway Bazaar

    Theroux recounts his early adventures on an unusual grand continental tour. Asia's fabled trains are the stars of a journey that takes him on a loop eastbound from London's Victoria Station to Tokyo Central, then back from Japan on the Trans-Siberian. Brimming with Theroux's signature humor and wry observations, this engrossing chronicle is essential reading for both the ardent adventurer and the armchair traveler.

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

    Yes. I felt like a fly on the wall of a train traveling across the globe


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Great Railway Bazaar?

    The conversations on the Trans-Siberian


    Which character – as performed by Davina Porter – was your favorite?

    The author and his sometimes sardonic perspective


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I'd leave that to the author


    Any additional comments?

    I howled at the jumbling of language and the narrator's depictions. If you have a long car ride and want to tune out the landscape.... or... start thinking about the landscape as the author of this book does, you'll arrive at your destination refreshed and thinking about what it would be like to fill his shoes for weeks to come.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    If you could sum up The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in three words, what would they be?

    Read this book!


    What other book might you compare The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to and why?

    The classics in the genre like 'How to Win Friends and Influence People',


    What about Stephen R. Covey’s performance did you like?

    I felt his passion but have been spoiled by other more adapt narrators. Covey did a good job though


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    The Time Management Matrix


    Any additional comments?

    What an excellent book. Blows away the topical personality based skills training people learn. I plan on having a study group that will keep this book in my habitual life until I decease.
