    David Sedaris's beloved holiday collection is new again with six more pieces, including a never before published story. Along with such favorites as the diaries of a Macy's elf and the annals of two very competitive families, are Sedaris's tales of tardy trick-or-treaters ("Us and Them"); the difficulties of explaining the Easter Bunny to the French ("Jesus Shaves"); and what to do when you've been locked out in a snowstorm ("Let It Snow").

    Marcus Buckingham jump-started the Strengths movement now sweeping the work world with his first two blockbusters. Now, he answers the ultimate question: How can you actually apply your strengths for maximum success at work? Research data show that most people do not come close to making full use of their assets on the job. Go Put Your Strengths to Work will reveal the hidden dimensions of your strengths through a six-step, six-week experience.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Go Put Your Strengths to Work to be better than the print version?

    I'm not all the way through this book, but I do believe it's premise that one should capitalize on your strengths rather than always focusing on and trying to correct your weaknesses. As an HR professional I am looking forward to putting some of this focus into practice in performance reviews. It may be difficult for people to pinpoint their areas of expertise or where they are naturally gifted. The book also speaks about how your underlying personality doesn't change. This applies to child-rearing as well. Many parents, including myself spend lots of time focusing on the things about our children that we would like to change rather than focusing on what makes them special and how these gifts will carry them through their lives. Already I've learned much about the power of this focus and see lots of ways to apply it to practice at home and at work.

  • Every Day is an Atheist Holiday!: More Magical Tales from the Author of 'God, No!'

    Let's be honest - nobody has more fun than atheists. Don’t believe it? Well, consider this: For nonbelievers, every day you’re alive is a day to celebrate! And no one celebrates life to the fullest like Penn Jillette - the larger, louder half of legendary magic duo Penn & Teller - whose spectacularly witty and sharply observant essays in Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday! will entertain zealots and skeptics alike.

    Where does Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listened to this book several times. I am a fan of Penn Jillette and listen to his podcast every week. I am so glad I chose this as my first audible book. I've listened to it several times already and never tire of it. Penn has a great delivery - he believes in what he says and he clearly enjoys talking and sharing his crazy stories with others. His personality and values come through clearly. I was especially affected by the relationship he shared with his mother. It was one of unconditional love. He aspires to this with his own children. It's funny to say, but after reading this book, I think it's made me a better person and mom to my kids. If you are a fan of Penn Jillette and love crazy stories, give this one a listen. It will not disappoint.
