We are negotiating all the times. This helps me see how others can manipulate me and hopefully make my negotiating better.
Yes. Planning to give it to my daughter graduating from Law school.
How a person with a brilliant mind but severely disabled body not only copes with life, but actually excels others in his field equally as brilliant but not as accomplished as Hawking.BUT, although I am totally impressed by her grasp of difficult theoretical physics and attempt to bring this would to us, I really wanted more biography and much less physics. I do like science but this was way more than i had anticipated. I had to wade through the physics to get back to the biography.
She made me feel like she was the author having these interviews with Stephen Hawking.
If it had less physics and more story.
I did learn a lot about cosmology and physics.
This book demonstrates that a persons life is a combination of his family upbringing, his environment, his drive to succeed, AND that incalculable factor of LUCK, things happening at a time that will benefit or hurt one's life journey.
The author examines not only the person, but his parents AND their parents. He brings out the flavor of the poor hill country of Texas and the people who tried to survive in a hostile environment.
Very easy to listen to his expressive mellow voice
Incredibly detailed story of the making of a remarkable leader.
I cant wait for someone to make a movie of this book.Absolutely riviting tale of a man coming from nowhere, with a childhood that seemed to lead to a life of physical toil to a man who is acnolodged to be a great president of the U.S.
To learn and utilize the basic skills of catching people in a lie. Once you hear someone respond just like the book says they will when they lie, it becomes very noticeable. I lied about something and after thinking about what I learned in the book, I realized I did exactly what the book said i would do if I was lying.
Reviewing the testimonies or interviews with reporters or police officers of famous liers, Bill Clinton, Jerry Sandusky, OJ Simpson, and actually hear them lying.
It is like being in a class taught by the author.
I will definitely be more aware of the common ploys liars use, eg. "why are you asking me that question?" instead of just answering the question.
Useful at home, work, with kids, and when watching famous or infamous people talk to the press, or give testimony in court.
The life of Steve Wozniak was told to me in a very personal way. There were a lot of
How accidentally attending a meeting of early computer changed his life.
I felt like the real Steve Wozniak was talking to me. The excitement in his voice when he created something and it actually worked was really real.
I have been listering to "Books on Tape" for over 20 years. This has been one of my favorite listens. I just wanted just to learn more about Byzantium but I was drawn into a fabulous story with memorable characters.I can actually hear the Viking King bellowing his commands to his crew. Stuart Langton brings the story to life. I will just look for other books he has narrated.
I will also explore other books written by Stephen Lawhead. Enjoy.
I loved Clan of Cave Bears most and some of the sequels. But this book was boring or "flat" as one reviewer said. It did review much of the past but Ayla has definately lost her gift of invention. I kept waiting for her to either invent the wheel, or meet with her "mixed blood" son of a "Clan" mate. Reread the original for the true Ayla.
