The Professor provides a lot of background and detail on communications, but I was left a little disappointed. The entire trust of his presentation is to give one the tools for more effective communication, but I did not get anything new. What was missing was how to communicate with those who are unwilling to follow the professor's best practices.
What a treat! I'm of an age where MASH the movie and MASH the TV program are a part of my heritage. But, I missed a lot of fun having never read the book. The reader can see the beginnings of most of the characters and plot lines that are so familiar. The reading is great: very expressive and conveys the spirit of the story. Highly recommended!
It was lots of fun tracking the progress of the discovery of the structure of DNA with one of its key participants. Remarkably candid and well written!
This book is on everyones list of the most important "Florida Books". After listening to it, I understand why it has so many devoted fans. Everything about this book is a wonder: the characters, the narrative and dialog, the depiction of old Florida, and the story telling! I recommend it highly.
Some of the musing fail to resonate, but it's fascinating to be able to see the world from her point of view. I especially enjoyed her recollections of the disruption to her life from WWII. We think of war in grand terms, but this brings it to a very personal level.
Great presentation! This story may seem a little dated (all male jury, for example) but once you get into the story, you'll find the themes very familiar and relevant.
Like many-many, I loved the Kite Runner and looked forward to more stories from this talented author. Alas, this story, while well written, seems to amble around and only loosely connect the disparate parts.
No one can argue either the phenomenal success of Google, or the fact that it's a little weird. This book gets you behind the scenes to explain how Google became so important to our lives, and to expose a little dirty laundry. Great read!
I expected to learn a lot from this course, but was left feeling there has to be more. I'm unconvinced that the "masters of strategy" contribute much more of an understanding of war than the obvious. War is hell, and each era reinvents hell in new terms that redefine the meaning of effective strategy.
I love it when I have two views of a great story: cinema and book! I enjoyed both, but I especially enjoyed the pictorial sense of India down-deep, and I enjoyed listening to the main character in his own voice. The story is exceedingly far fetched, but very-very enjoyable.
