    In little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with 500 million users. It is one of the fastest growing companies in history, an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects, even becoming instrumental in political protests from Colombia to Iran.

    "Critique for Narrator"
    Overall

    I found the sniffs/snorts from the narrator a bit irritating in some sections of the audio book but otherwise the author gave some good insight into the beginnings of FB.

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

    Anyone who wants to start putting dashboard or rather performance measurement toolsets together


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    David & Goliath - Gladwell


    Did Ken Maxon do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Nope - voice was monotonous - and after my previous listen was a complete let down.


    Any additional comments?

    The really good stuff only starts half-way into the book

    Composting, and how to, is the theme that runs through this book, which also looks at the state of the world and adds a few folk tales and essays that may provoke your mind.

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

    Not sure - if you like a radio community show - then this may be it.


    Has Composting and Other Stories turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not necessarily


    Would you be willing to try another one of Trevor Lockwood’s performances?

    Nope


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Can I have my money back!!!?

    The 21st century is a world in constant change. In A New Culture of Learning, Doug Thomas and John Seely Brown pursue an understanding of how the forces of change, and emerging waves of interest associated with these forces, inspire and invite us to imagine a future of learning that is as powerful as it is optimistic.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a MUST read for any parent/academic or business exec.

    The way we're working is changing and this puts it into perspective.
