    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    What did you love best about Bossypants?

    The story was great. The narration was great. What's not to love about it!


    What does Tina Fey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tina Fey brings her unique sense of comedy to the table which can be heard through her narration.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Despite not being a big fan of Steve Jobs the person, I couldn't help but be fascinated by his success which drove me to listen to this book. I was impressed by the book's candor and recommend this as a good listen.

  • Hacking Work: Breaking Stupid Rules for Smart Results

    Why work harder than you have to? One manager kept his senior execs happy by secretly hacking into the company’s database, providing them the reports they needed in one-third the time. Hacking is a powerful solution to every stupid procedure, tool, rule, and process we are forced to endure. Benevolent hackers are saving business from itself. It would be so much easier to do great work if not for lingering bureaucracies, outdated technologies, and deeply irrational rules and procedures.

    I listened to this book and tbh, I could not finish it. I think there's just too much fluff in here for my liking. I'm sure other people will like this book and think it's a valuable resource but it's just not for me.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    What other book might you compare Go the F--k to Sleep to and why?

    There's no other book that compares!

    Please add more.

    Earl Nightingale's personal development message. Earl is a great inspirational communicator, with an easy to dicern message, which is very true. Earl's messages are always most relaxing and interesting.

    Would you try another book from Earl Nightingale and/or Earl Nightingale?

    It depends. I wouldn't be opposed to it but subject matter is more important to me.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Earl Nightingale? Why or why not?

    Again, I think the subject matter would probably matter to me more than the author at this point.


    What three words best describe Earl Nightingale’s performance?

    Informative. Solid. Smooth.

    Story

    I listened to this book in hopes of getting more organized since I had just started a new job and was greeted with a flood of information. This book preaches a certain methodology which requires all steps to done in order to succeed. I found it interesting to listen to all the steps/techniques but I knew most of them and I'm not ready to wholly subscribe to this process. The content was pretty good and the narration was pretty standard.
