    From Daniel H. Pink, the author of the groundbreaking best seller A Whole New Mind, comes his next big idea book: a paradigm-changing examination of what truly motivates us and how to harness that knowledge to find greater satisfaction in our lives and our work.

    Michael says: "Not as good as A Whole New Mind"
    "great book"
    Overall

    This book started out fairly slowly, but then it was fantastic with the thoughts and ideas it presented and the research that backs them up. It confirmed what I saw as a Recognition Coordinator for a major corporation. The carrot approach can create a lot of problems if not done correctly. I saw cheating, people being demotivated when there wasn't a contest on, etc. What I like most about this book were the ideas on how to encourage "Drive". I am going to buy the physical book for this to keep as a reference.

    A Signature Performance: Elijah Wood becomes the first narrator to bring a youthful voice and energy to the story, perhaps making it the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent.

    What made the experience of listening to Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: A Signature Performance by Elijah Wood the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed Elijah's narration. His reading voice is clear and lively with lots of personality.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked listening to this classic. Elijah's narration really brought it to life like watching a good play. The story itself is rich in details from the time period. Its a wonderful tale written by a master story teller. I like watching Huck grow as a character and figure out what he thinks for himself versus what society holds as truth.

  • The Tapping Solution: A Revolutionary System for Stress-Free Living

    What did you like best about The Tapping Solution? What did you like least?

    The narration is very good, and the technique is very helpful. However, if you are like me and like to listen to audio books while cleaning house or exercising, get this one as a book. He has had frequent stops to go through a tapping sequence or ask questions you need to stop and think about. This is good information. However, since I listen to audio books while doing other things, I can't really stop and do these.


    Which character – as performed by Nick Ortner – was your favorite?

    Nick Ortner's narration was very good. He has a pleasant, clear voice.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have preferred he put the instructional tapping sequences at the end of the book as a separate section and provided worksheets to go along with the guided questions. This would not interrupt the flow of the audio book if you are listening while driving, exercising, or other activities.

  • The Crown Tower: The Riyria Chronicles, Book 1

    Michael J. Sullivan garnered critical raves and a massive readership for his Riyria Revelations series. The first book in his highly anticipated Riyria Chronicles series of prequels, The Crown Tower brings together warrior Hadrian Blackwater with thieving assassin Royce Melborn. The two form a less-than-friendly pairing, but the quest before them has a rare prize indeed, and if they can breach the supposedly impregnable walls of the Crown Tower, their names will be legend.

    This has been my favorite series that I've listened to on Audible so far. The friendship between Royce and Hadrian is very well written and entertaining. The writing and narration effectively bring them and the world they live in to life.Its a fun series with lots of action and a variety of interesting characters. I would highly recommend this, and the other audiobooks in the series.

    In the story comic book legend Stan Lee calls "spellbinding" and "totally original," Thom Creed has secrets. For one, like his father, he has super powers. Also, he's been asked to join the League—the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad. Then there’s the secret Thom can barely face himself: he's gay. But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, Typhoid Larry, and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future. Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide....

    What made the experience of listening to Hero the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the characters. They were interesting and facts about them were revealed in stages so you wanted to keep listening to find out more.


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

    I enjoyed the narration. He did a good job bringing life to the characters and action.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It started off a bit slow at first, but it quickly got interesting. Toward the end, I didn't want to put it down.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have loved to see a sequel to this book. It'd be nice to know what happens to the characters next.

    Would you listen to Star Trek: Into Darkness again? Why?

    I really enjoyed this book. It is well written. It gives a little more depth to a few of the things that the movie sped through. Alice Eve did a great job with the voices and accents. Every one was very distinctive and easily recognizable. In addition, she gave a lot of vibrancy to her performance. It is a fun listen. I would recommend it.
