    Story

    I'm not a GTD evangelist, but I do like to review my organizational situation from time to time.

    If you are looking for a step by step solution to organizing your life get the printed book, but to be reminded of the basics and to help you adjust your actions, this is a great listen.

  • Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything

    Today, encyclopedias, jetliners, operating systems, mutual funds, and many other items are being created by teams numbering in the thousands or even millions. While some leaders fear the burgeoning growth of these massive online communities, Wikinomics proves this fear is folly. Smart firms can harness collective capability and genius to spur innovation, growth, and success.

    Agreed, some of this content and the examples used are somewhat dated but it still makes very interesting and thought provoking reading.

    Mass Collaboration IS changing everything, and understanding this fact has influenced me and my work. If you listen to this, don't dwell on the specific examples but take in the underlying message.

    Here is the New York Times and international best seller, revised and expanded with a new afterword. This is the essential update of Fareed Zakaria's analysis about America and its shifting position in world affairs. In this new edition, Zakaria makes sense of the rapidly changing global landscape. With his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination, he draws on lessons from the two great power shifts of the past 500 years - the rise of the Western world and the rise of the United States - to tell us what we can expect from the third shift, the rise of the rest.

    Steve says: "S/B req reading for every man, woman and child..."
    "Good thinking material"

    Fareed Zakaria is an excellent story teller and this is no exception. This book gives a great overview of the multitude of issues facing the USA and the rest of the western world. It's an easy listen and great to stimulate thought.

  • American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 24 mins)

    In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark - as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer.

    Diane says: "Unabashedly Honest"
    "Great Scot! ..and what a patriot"
    Overall

    Also being American by choice this book spoke to me in several ways.

    Craig takes the listener on an entertaining journey from being a wee Scottish lad, insecure and unsure about himself, through his range of achievements and life experiences.

    Understandably he keeps you laughing through the highs of his life but his story telling abilities shine through as he drops you down again and again into his struggle with addictions, yet he still keeps you laughing.

    A great listen, and a highly recommended read for the entertainment and motivational value.
