    What if you were given the ultimatum: make a radical shift in your life, or lose it all? This was the question Alan Deutschman posed in "Change or Die", his sensational cover story for the May 2005 issue of Fast Company. Surprisingly, Deutschman concluded that although we all have the innate capability and fundamental need to change our behavior, we rarely ever do.

    Joe says: "Very Good"
    "Simple. Smart. Sustaining."
    Overall

    Not really knowing what to expect, I was very surprised with how much I learned from this audio book. After listening to this audio presentation, I have come away with a renewed sense of hope and a reduced sense of despair regarding areas of my life and work that I know require change. Listening to this audio book has also given me a more powerful conceptual framework for handling conflict and approaching issues of change with other people.

    Simple. Smart. Sustaining.

    I must also give kudos to the narrator. His voice and articulation perfectly matched the tempo and style of the book. I felt as if the author himself were reading the book.

    Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.

    "Excellent book!"
    Overall

    This is up there in my top audiobook for the year - right next to "Made to Stick".

    It is full of interesting and useful information.

    An excellent follow-up book for those who liked Robert Cialdini's "Influence" from the 1980s.

    Mark Penn argues that the biggest trends in America are the Microtrends, the smaller trends that go unnoticed or ignored. With years of experience as one of world's most highly regarded pollsters, Penn identifies the new microtrends sweeping the world, such as "Single Women by Choice" and "Sun Haters". Microtrends highlights everything from religion to politics, from leisure pursuits to relationships and will take the listener into the worlds of polling, targeting, and psychographic analysis.

    Greg B says: "Interesting ideas, but fell asleep"
    "Is this book over yet?"
    Overall

    Pretty disappointed with this audiobook - nothing more than an in-depth recitation of quirky statistical information. About 2/3 of the way through this book I had to call it quits. BTW, this is not a good book to listen to while drive - you may fall asleep.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    Overall

    Hands down one of the top offerings available on audible.com!

    I could heap superlative after superlative on this book in an attempt to convince you to buy it - but I won't.

    The fewer people that read this book, the better off for me. The knowledge is so simple, yet so practical, I want to be able to use it all for my own personal gain and not have to share it with other potential competitors in the idea marketplace.

    On a side note, who ever said the narrator was dry or ineffective....well lets just say they don't know what they are talking about. The narration was smooth and totally appropriate for the content delivered. He nailed it.
