Great story overall about a man who chose an amazing path with very intelligent reasoning of the world, a persons life as a humanitarian, and life as an elite soldier. Great to know there are amazing people like this in the world.
I liked this book, didn't love it, but should be expected since it's an overview of the company and actual events. Author did a good job of stringing everything together to explain what happened in real time.
No, it got a little boring toward the end so I had to listen in spurts to get done with it.
Good book that should be read for anyone working in tech or for a large company. Much of the way Amazon is being run and the attitudes are being integrated into other companies so it's a good explanation of why things seem to be shifting in the way people run their businesses.
The insights to how people think and reasons proposed for issues in our lives. Great self help book, with content focused along similar help strategies, but well presented from her point of view.
I liked that it was a seminar rather than just a book. It was like attending the workshop.
Her emotion and the way she spoke about things gave it a lot more power than just reading the words. When you think of self help it makes a huge difference being delivered and discussed with real and parsonal emotion.
No, in fact it was tough to listen to at times because it touches on topics that hit to real emotion. As a natural mental way of not dealing with problems, it may cause you to want to put it down for a while and think on some of the ideas before continuing. It's a book but you do work while listening to it, great, but tough at times. Worth getting through it though!
I disliked all the hype about how great and interesting the book was, when it was more of an account of activities and not the controversial, earth shattering, reveal all book it was advertised as. I liked the factual guide through the history of the company from start to current day, but it was more of a historical re-count, not very earth shattering or enthralling.
The writing was solid and the performance very good, but I think the hype the tech community put on it really ruined the experience for me by raising expectations of the story.
Maybe when it came out on DVD, unless they throw some more color to what happened and make it a little more fictional, it would be kind of boring. If it were a documentary, that would be interesting, but probably a mirror image of this book.
Ok read, don't get your hopes up and you'll enjoy it more.
Excellent techniques for creative thinking, learning, and teaching. Great work here and a must read for anyone looking to transform their lives and continue to grow as well as a must for any educator or anyone looking to teach or mentor others.
The techniques and examples to relate to the work.
No, some of it I went back to read again as well. Great to read through then go back and read parts or the whole again to really absorb it.
To pick up some additional information I may have missed. The way regular people live is such a sad, but interestingly strange place that nobody ever talks about. Makes you really think about what's going on in our own country.
Love the whole series and since there were no more books in the series, I had to go and read these shorter stories too. Can't stop reading these. I liked that since I already read the series, there was not a lot of background needed to enjoy.
Love the whole series and since there were no more books in the series, I had to go and read these too. Can't stop reading these.
The history of the direction science was moving when the idea of brain plasticity was being proposed as well as the actual details of cases and practical implications this has in life.
This is a must for people to read if they have an interest in explaining things that happen to people and how therapy helps from topics through stroke therapy, autism, genetics, personal problems. Very interesting, I'll read again.
The recording was very low so I had to crank up my ipod and stereo when listening all the way. Wish it were louder to allow me to run at a normal volume. Was clear, just the volume was not loud at all.
The book is a great insight to how finance, currency, diplomacy, and secrecy about economy is conducted in the world we live in. Makes you wonder what other policies, discussions, and decisions take place behind closed doors and the agendas of the major players involved. Really makes you start thinking.
Yes because it was very informative, and opened up my eyes to issues in a way I had not been exposed to them before.
There is a point in the book where he explains the interactions, decisions, and behind the scenes dealings that go on between the banks and governments that gave me the creeps about the way those dealings and decisions are made. Well told and explained.
Great book, but a slow and tough read at times because there is so much detail to follow. Great to re-read some parts to make sure you get the understanding, but he does a great job laying out some very complicated dealings that I now know banks and institutions like to keep that way to keep their dealings confusing to the average person. Moves you when you begin to understand that this is how banking, finance, and currency work and are intertwined with politics, the elites of the world, and countries positioning.
