  • David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

    Story
    (3937)

    In David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks. Gladwell begins with the real story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy those many years ago.

    Would you try another book from Malcolm Gladwell and/or Malcolm Gladwell?

    Yes, even though I believe this book is not as strong as I had hoped.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    He stayed on subject but it was very weak from the middle to the end


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was good, clearly spoken with good emphasis


    Do you think David and Goliath needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No . . . just shorten it . . . maybe end it somewhere in the middle


    Any additional comments?

    The beginning of the book is extremely inspirational and sharp - it got my attention quickly - but alas it waned

    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Secret the most enjoyable?

    THIS IS GOOD INFORMATION and is within the same messages I have received throughout my life (home, neighborhood, school, church & work). This is based on the principles most of us grew up with and somehow did not get a clear understanding. IT'S CLEAR!! IT'S GREAT!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is a great reminder of some of the same things my elders tried to impart in me and clarification of some things I did not understand before. IT'S INSPIRING!!


    Did Rhonda Byrne and contributors do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Everything was clear.


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

    Staying positive . . . .


    Any additional comments?

    I have just gone through a trauma and this has helped me to get my perspective back. I love this audio book and listen to it almost everyday to constantly remind myself that I am the navigator of my life's path and of the gifts bestowed on me . . .

  • The Racketeer

    Story

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was very engaging and I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys J. Grisham and good suspense.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Racketeer?

    I felt like I was right there each time they went into the bank (I almost held my breath)


    What about J.D. Jackson’s performance did you like?

    The narrator made this novel come alive - I could easily envision the story as it unfolded


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

    Definitely Yes! I could not stop listening until the end.


    Any additional comments?

    It's John Gresham - what else can I say.
