    Have you ever considered creating your very own podcast? Podcast Launch will take you through the entire process, from step one to step done. These tutorials will make your podcast experience enjoyable and stress-free. Podcast Launch begins with identifying your podcast, followed by the equipment needed, recording and editing, intros and outros, tagging your MP3, uploading to a media host, embedding your MP3 onto your website, submitting your podcast to iTunes, Stitcher Radio, and Blackberry, launching your podcast the right way, and monetizing.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book contains about 5 minutes of useful information and the rest is nothing more than an advertisement for his website/podcast. Yes, he may have a podcast himself and that is advertised ad nauseum but, there is very little more content here than a constant redirect to his website URLs.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Unfortunately, there are very few audiobooks about podcasting. But, this one is nothing more than an advertisment for his podcast.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Lee Dumas’s performances?

    I will not purchase another audiobook from this author.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I learned very, very little about how to podcast but, plenty about how to get to his website URLs. And dozens of plugs about his Podcast.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy this book if you want to learn how to podcast. This is just a promotion for his podcast.

  • Thinner Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Female Body

    If you want to be toned, lean, and strong as quickly as possible without crash dieting, good genetics, or wasting ridiculous amounts of time in the gym and money on supplements... regardless of your age... then you want to listen to this audiobook. Here's the deal: Getting into great shape isn't nearly as complicated as the fitness industry wants you to believe.

    Would you try another book from Michael Matthews and/or Jeff Justus?

    Perhaps


    If you’ve listened to books by Michael Matthews before, how does this one compare?

    I have not but, this one was good


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Justus – was your favorite?

    Jeff Justus read this like he was talking to a twenty something man, not a woman. It felt like what "Maxim" magazine would sound like on audio. Don't you want, strong, sexy, hot, and awesome hotness, lean, sexy, hotness? Well, I am going to tell you how to sexy up your work out... Something like that.


    Do you think Thinner Leaner Stronger needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. This book provides a fundamental concept of resistance training and proper diet and supplements. This is definitely very sound advice. The production just doesn't work for me.


    Any additional comments?

    There is nothing particularly new in this book but, it is sound advice. The book definitely sounds like it was written for a man though. Perhaps the narrator is simply trying to "sexy" it too much but, this definitely sounds like it was written for a man, not a woman

  • Economics in One Lesson

    Called by H.L. Mencken, "one of the few economists in history who could really write," Henry Hazlitt achieved lasting fame for his brilliant but concise work. In it, he explains basic truths about economics and the economic fallacies responsible for unemployment, inflation, high taxes, and recession.

    Kenrick says: "Truly an amazing work."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Economics in One Lesson to be better than the print version?

    Unknown


    What other book might you compare Economics in One Lesson to and why?

    Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell is equally brilliant.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't understand the question


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Economics in One Lesson?

    This book is all you need to know about economics and nothing you don't.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the best primer on economics ever. If you know nothing about economics you must listen to this book. This book explains how the economy actually works. It is as timely today as it was 30, 40 or 50 years ago.
