  • Thinking Strategically: The Competitive Edge in Business, Politics, and Everyday Life

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 24 mins)
    • By Avinash K. Dixit
    • Narrated By Mark Delgado
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The international best seller - don't compete without it! A major best seller in Japan, Financial Times top-ten book of the year, Book-of-the-Month Club best seller, and required reading at the best business schools, Thinking Strategically is a crash course in outmaneauvering any rival. This entertaining guide builds on scores of case studies taken from business, sports, the movies, politics, and gambling. It outlines the basics of good strategy-making and then shows how you can apply them in any area of your life.

    "Robotic performance!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend and will purchase the hardcopy as a great reference and case study product. The narration was just horrible. A wonderful and well-written text with a robot reader. Why would Audible subject their audience to this one--youck!

    If you’ve listened to books by Avinash K. Dixit before, how does this one compare?

    Not applicable.

    How could the performance have been better?

    Are you kidding? This performance can go nowhere but up. Terrible!

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


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book that I found very interesting. The quantitative decision making process is one of my favorite process tostudy and theorize upon. Great illustrations. But buy the book, the narrator is like a robot. Sorry robots!

  • Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 14 mins)
    • By Greg McKeown
    • Narrated By Greg McKeown

    By forcing us to apply a more selective criteria for what is Essential, the disciplined pursuit of less empowers us to reclaim control of our own choices about where to spend our precious time and energy - instead of giving others the implicit permission to choose for us. Essentialism is not one more thing - it’s a whole new way of doing everything. It’s about doing less, but better, in every area of our lives. Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.

    Jason Comely says: "Call me an "Essentialist""
    "Operations/Supply-Chain Management woven into life"

    Have read the audible and hard copy multiple times--required reading in my classes for Undergrad Operations and Supply-Chain Management. I hope my students can make the connection to their lives, and create a more meaningful learning experience. This book should be read and applied to any life seeking enduring values (intrinsic motivation) over grades and salary standards (extrinsic motivation). Great weaving of truths into life and business, organizational and individual. Hope Greg keeps writing!

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Dan Heath, Chip Heath
    • Narrated By Charles Kahlenberg
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better Than Made to Stick"

    This monotone narration is so diametrically opposed to the quality of the writing of this book, and the Heath's other work (Made to Stick). There is some great material here, and the book is a great way to access the work of the authors. The audiobook is horrible due to, what sounds like, a digitized reading machine--hardly stops for periods, much less accentuate emotion.
    If I had listened to this audiobook before reading Made to Stick, I would likely have never read another work by the Heath brothers. Really should invest in their own quality, as they suggest in their writings. Take your own medicine, please.
