Romm demonstrates that you don't have to be an expert to vastly improve your ability to communicate. He has pulled together the secrets of the greatest communicators in history to show how you can apply these tools to your writing, speaking, blogging - even your Tweeting.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If it were about what the title implied.

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Drew Birdseye?

    Narrator was fine... even good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Some good content but mostly the book was an opportunity to create as many global warming metaphors as possible.

    (2175)

    Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.

    Mike says: "Enthralling and authentic story of valor in combat"
    "Absolutely Fantastic!!!"

  • Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 27 mins)

    Story
    (1011)

    Moneyball reveals a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of major league teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors.

    Gordon Lamb says: "Excellent Book, Outstanding Narration, Sloppy Edit"
    "Engaging."

    What did you love best about Moneyball?

    I really enjoyed this book. Couldn't put it down.


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

    I would listen to Scott Brick read the dictionary. He is fantastic.
