    Every so often, an audiobook comes along that captures the attention of the hard working entrepreneur (for more than ten minutes) and literally changes the paradigm of how they view their business. Through a quick listen you will experience Scott Fritz's entrepreneurial journey first hand, as he shares with you the business tools, action focused exercises and mindset philosophy that allowed him to achieve The 40 Hour Work YEAR.

    What made the experience of listening to The 40 Hour Work YEAR the most enjoyable?

    1st off, it was short. I listened at 3 times the speed, went for a drive, and had finished to book by the time i got back home. Every bit of this book was to the point.


    What other book might you compare The 40 Hour Work YEAR to and why?

    To me, it blew away the 4 hour work week, because it was not about hiring virtual assistants and skipping emails. It was about building a company that is truly better without you. Building systems and inspecting what you expect.


    What about Tom Zingarelli’s performance did you like?

    I liked it a lot. At 3x speed he sounded very clear.


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

    The business is better off without me working in it.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd love to chat with the author, Scott Fritz

  • Growth Hacker Marketing: A Primer on the Future of PR, Marketing, and Advertising

    Everything you thought you knew about marketing is obsolete. We can see the incontrovertible evidence right in front of us. A new generation of multibillion dollar brands - Facebook, Twitter, AirBnb, Evernote, and countless others - have been built without spending a dime on traditional marketing techniques. No press releases, no PR firm, no Madison Avenue, no billboards in Times Square. It wasn’t luck that took them from tiny start-ups to massive success. They have a new strategy.

    Would you listen to Growth Hacker Marketing again? Why?

    Yea, It's short and is a quick review on what Growth Hacking is.


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

    No moments particularly moved me. It was pretty straight forward.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is great for people who are new to Growth Hacking. I felt it was a good breakdown, but I'm not sure i learned anything new.

    Also, though Ryan Holiday did a good job, you can tell that he's relatively new to the growth hacking world and is piggy-backing off the success of his last book which is related more to his actual experiences.

    From GQ's "Nerd of the Year" to one of Time's most influential people in the world, Biz Stone represents different things to different people. But he is known to all as the creative, effervescent, funny, charmingly positive and remarkably savvy co-founder of Twitter - the social media platform that singlehandedly changed the way the world works. Now, Biz tells fascinating, pivotal, and personal stories from his early life and his careers at Google and Twitter, sharing his knowledge about the nature and importance of ingenuity today.

    What did you love best about Things a Little Bird Told Me?

    Looking back, I can actually "see" the creation of twitter and the personality and growth of its founders. Biz did an incredible job of writing the story in such a way that you feel like you're there, growing with the team.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think Biz was my favorite character because he's so logical, easy going, and straight forward. In a sea of extreme personalities, Biz was the most centered.

    At the same time, Jack Dorsey was interesting, but not as easy to like.


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

    Watching Jack Dorsey's transformation from Geeky Punk Kid to extremely successful Steve Jobs wannabe was incredibly interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to this book is like uploading yourself into the making of Twitter.

    After almost four decades in the music business, David Foster - producer, arranger, songwriter, performer - is ready to speak. In his compelling and outspoken memoir, Foster shares incredible stories from his years of working with music superstars, including Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Natalie Cole, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Josh Groban, Michael Buble, and many others.

    Would you listen to Hitman again? Why?

    I felt that i really comprehended and visualized the entire auto-biography. However, It was a really enjoyable listen, and i feel the lessons and experiences will have newfound effects on me as I age and grow over time.


    What about David Foster’s performance did you like?

    I liked how real David is. He says it like it is. He doesn't try to sugar coat or make things a big deal. He just tells you his story the way he remembers it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When I first started reading the book a couple years ago, I completely stopped after one of the 1st few chapters. The chapter referenced David's ability to have Perfect Pitch. He could hear a note on the piano and know exactly what it was.

    After reading that, i vowed to learn perfect pitch and start reading again once i've figured it out.

    I haven't mastered perfect pitch yet, but I did come up with a new device that can train perfect pitch, and now i just need to prototype it.

    After coming up with the idea for "Pitch Blocks", I listened to the book from start to finish in just a couple sittings. It gave me all the inspiration i needed to finish building my concept and start training myself to have perfect pitch.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Weight Loss, Health, and Healing with Self-Hypnosis, Guided Meditation, and Subliminal Affirmations Collection to be better than the print version?

    You listen with your eyes closed. There is no print version


    What other book might you compare Weight Loss, Health, and Healing with Self-Hypnosis, Guided Meditation, and Subliminal Affirmations Collection to and why?

    I would compare this to any other night time hypnosis program. However, I love that it's part of my audible collection and counts toward my audible stats.


    What about Joel Thielke’s performance did you like?

    I have 6 or 7 of Joel's sleep systems and his performance is perfect. For the 1st time ever, i can go to sleep when I choose and now that i'll be sleeping within no time. His voice is just right and the background music kicks in at just the right moments with just the right vibes


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me sleep! It helped me to go out and buyer a juicer the next day. It helped me to change my eating habits and interest in my overall health.

    We will soon be able to meet and exceed the basic needs of every man, woman, and child on the planet. Abundance for all is within our grasp. This bold, contrarian view, backed up by exhaustive research, introduces our near-term future, where exponentially growing technologies and three other powerful forces are conspiring to better the lives of billions of people. This book is an antidote to pessimism by tech-entrepreneur-turned-philanthropist Peter H. Diamandis and award-winning science writer Steven Kotler.

    What did you love best about Abundance?

    Peter does a tremendous job of introducing futuristic new markets in an incredibly simple to understand way. Using a series of examples, he properly crafts a narrative that helps you understand exactly how the future is getting better.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    I got to learn about a wide range of technologies and concepts all within one book. Over population, computers, water scarcity and purification, genomics, quality of life, life expectancy etc. etc. etc.


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

    The explanation of SpaceX prize and the contest behind Charles Lindbergh's famous flight


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to visiting Singularity University
