    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, 3rd Edition to be better than the print version?

    Ahhhh this is fantastic. I can learn as I walk & do other things. I think this audible version specially with the entertaining way that professor Greenberg presents the lectures is the best way to approach this course. It has brought meaning to a world that I could not ever imagine to understand.


    What other book might you compare How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, 3rd Edition to and why?

    None. This is unique.


    Have you listened to any of Professor Robert Greenberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No But I have purchased his other audible books and can't wait to dive into opera.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Music made easy


    Any additional comments?

    As one of the viewers mentioned, thank you for making this wealth of information affordable for the masses (the enlightenment of masses). I truly wish you would develop and add more material to this section. I find professor Greenberg's style very appealing. His background historical information drives the point home and gives the information a textural depth that would come across very dry in a historical written work. I only wish you could provide supplementary course material as well. I am happy to pay for it.

    President Bill Clinton gives us his views on the challenges facing the United States today and why government matters—presenting his ideas on restoring economic growth, energy, job creation, financial responsibility, resolving the mortgage crisis, and financial responsibility, and offering a plan to get us "back in the future business".

    Would you listen to Back to Work again? Why?

    I really loved his approach, explaining the problem and providing detailed proposed solutions. I have not checked his assumptions but knowing what a brilliant mind he is I would absolutely trust his work.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Current issues that US is facing and rather than hearing slogans and meaningless marketing campaigns he is providing a real step by step approach to solving our problems. He can explain the problem in a way that everybody can understand. What a great communicator! Also I love the fact that he acknowledges American place in the world and the fact that we are not who we think we are anymore.


    What about Bill Clinton’s performance did you like?

    Yes. I love listening to his lazy accent. It is familiar and reassuring.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Understand the core issues, Step up, do the hard work


    Any additional comments?

    I am so thrilled that he is still working. I am quite impressed with his global mind set. Absolutely admire him.
