    Many people feel called to help others and change the world, but they just don’t know how to fulfill their potential. They have the creativity and passion, but often get lost, not knowing how to direct their energies. Now, popular life coach Martha Beck shows how readers can find their calling in service and healing - while realizing their destiny. With a sparkling, compassionate, and often irreverent style, Beck draws from a combination of ancient wisdom and modern science to help readers consciously embrace vital skills that may be embedded in our DNA and are now made accessible again.

    In a memoir hailed for its searing candor and wit, Alice Sebold (The Lovely Bones) reveals how her life was utterly transformed when, as an 18-year-old college freshman, she was brutally raped and beaten in a park near campus. "A rueful, razor-sharp memoir," raves Vogue, "funnier than you'd think was possible. Sebold tells what it's like to go through a particular kind of nightmare in order to tell what it's like - slowly, boldly, triumphantly - to heal."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lucky to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed the conversation with Alice Sebold explaining the story in her own words. I enjoyed the audio version better. I read the book about a year or so before I listened to the audio version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked her details in the story, the feelings, and the emotions that she went through. She shared many raw emotions. I cried with her and related to her story as she told it in a powerful and vulnerable way.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I had a hard time stopping the audio and found myself staying up late just to hear what happened next.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a gripping and detailed story about her rape.

    Everyone cheats. Cuts corners. Tells lies. Maybe it was different once. Not anymore. If you want to succeed nowadays, you have to make compromises. Right? Wrong. You can succeed at the highest levels, without sacrificing the principles that make life worth living.

    In Winners Never Cheat Huntsman tells you how he did it, and how you can, too. This audiobook is about remembering why you work, and why you were chosen to lead. It's about finding the bravery to act on what you know is right and building teams with the same courage. It's about winning. The right way.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Winners Never Cheat the most enjoyable?

    I had heard about Jon Huntsman, but never knew much about him. This was a great story about his life and the work he has done in his life.


    What other book might you compare Winners Never Cheat to and why?

    I would compare this to "How to win friends and Influence People." This book relates the way to carry yourself in business and life. Talks about how to stay true to yourself and your knowledge of right and wrong and how this will influence your life for the better.


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

    How Jon was awarded a scholarship to go to school.

    What did you love best about VangoNotes for Microbiology?

    This supported my studying of Microbiology and tested your knowledge about key concepts. Well narrated.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of VangoNotes for Microbiology?

    I really liked that they gave time between questions to come up with the answer.


    Any additional comments?

    Each chapter has the author and chapter heading, which I think is what someone reviewed as an advertisement, it is simply separating each topic. It is only about 15 seconds, so I would fast forward through that.
    This really gave a great review/overview of each chapter that is covered in a first semester Microbiology class.
