  • Demand: Creating What People Love Before They Know They Want It

    In Demand, Adrian Slywotzky provides a radically new way to think about demand, with a big idea and a host of practical applications - not just for people in business but also for social activists, government leaders, non-profit managers, and other would-be innovators. To succeed in their various missions, all these groups need to master such ground-breaking concepts as the hassle map (and the secrets of fixing it); the curse of the incomplete product (and how to avoid it); why “very good” does not equal “magnetic”....

    If you could sum up Demand in three words, what would they be?

    Questioning, Useful, Industry-centric


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Demand?

    The story of Netflix


    Any additional comments?

    I really like this book and think it is useful, but I wish it had more directions on what it really means to make something "Magnetic". It makes sense what the author is saying, but it is very hard to define or actually understand what makes things magnetic, and I had been hoping the book would explain that better.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    What did you love best about A Game of Thrones?

    Great story


    What did you like best about this story?

    the depth of the characters and how unpredictable it is


    What three words best describe Roy Dotrice’s voice?

    hard-to understand; makes me feel uncomfortable; annoying role-playing attempts that fail to accomplish anything


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

    no.. it's way too long for that! took me forever to get through this book


    Any additional comments?

    Audible apps don't do a good job of helping you pick up where you left off across multiple devices, so try to use this on only one device if you don't want to end up lost and having to search through 40some hours for where you were!

  • Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

    Would you listen to Quiet again? Why?

    Yes! It's just got so many good points that I need to be reminded of


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That introverts can be some of the most creative people, like writers and artists and engineers. I didn't know that self reflection had such a great benefit.

    Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO, ranked eighth on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business - has become one of America's most galvanizing leaders, and an icon for millions of women juggling work and family. In Lean In, she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with it at the highest levels throughout their lives.

    What made the experience of listening to Lean In the most enjoyable?

    Sheryl Sandberg is so "real". Her book is amazing, really, and I was surprised by how much it mapped to a lot of the things in my life, and it opened my eyes up to biases within myself and society that before I hadn't noticed.


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

    No, I listened to a little bit of it every day on my commute


    Any additional comments?

    This book is an absolute must have, for any woman (working or not), and preferably also for every man who wants to live in a more fair, balanced and productive world. I finished the book and decided immediately that I want to listen to it again!
