    Action-packed from the start, Hidden Order demonstrates yet again why Brad Thor is the "master of thrillers". A string of high-profile kidnappings has Washington, D.C., in a frenzy. When the victims begin turning up dead, frenzy turns to panic. And when the ransom demand is finally made public, panic will turn to terror. In Brad Thor's riveting new thriller, the stakes have never been higher, nor the lines between good and evil so hard to discern.

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

    The story might actually be good, but the irritating nasal twang and repetitive speech patterns of the narrator only left me thinking how much better it would be in the hands of someone like George Guidall.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Armand Schultz?

    George Guidall !!!


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

    All of them, because of the narration.

  • The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 23 mins)

    Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would pull out three hours of the author's self-congratulatory case studies, and coach him a little on how to read his own writing.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Shawn Achor?

    I think he was perfect for this book -- moderately professional.
