    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Made me think. Would have been much better if I were listening at home or reading a paperback so I could do the exercises which would help me remember and implement the principles.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Brendon Burchard? Why or why not?

    Maybe.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narration was okay. Sounds like he may have been reading his own book. That's probably the only way to get the enthusiasm he has for this subject across.


    Do you think The Charge needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Maybe a distilled version. As with most books, the take aways could be boiled down to about 10% of the volume.

    Where does The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very practical approach
    Not gimmicky like it sounds
    More resources listed than you could ever remember. It would probably be a good idea to buy the hard copy of this book for that reason.
    I will definitely read this one again.

    In this audio edition of the totally revised underground best seller, The E-Myth, Michael Gerber dispels the myths surrounding starting your own business and shows how commonplace assumptions can get in the way of running a business. He walks you through the steps in the life of a business, from entrepreneurial infancy, through adolescent growing pains, to the mature entrepreneurial perspective, the guiding light of all businesses that succeed.

    Would you listen to The E-Myth Revisited again? Why?

    The idea of defining every detail of how to do your business resonated with me. I believe that defining roles and documenting processes then using objective metrics to evaluate your business is a great way to grow. It allows you to understand what works and what doesn't and leads you to ways to make your business even more effective.

    I will probably read this one again.

  • The Myth of Multitasking: How 'Doing It All' Gets Nothing Done

    In a compelling business fable, The Myth of Multitasking confronts a popular idea that has come to define our hectic, work-a-day world. This simple yet powerful book shows clearly why multitasking is, in fact, a lie that wastes time and costs money. Far from being efficient, multitasking actually damages productivity and relationships at work and at home.

    Javier says: "Great book, short and straight to the point"
    "Very practical easy to understand principles"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Myth of Multitasking the most enjoyable?

    He suggested writing a sentence then writing a series of numbers and timing how long it takes to do it. Now write the first letter of the sentence followed by the first number in the series and go back and forth until you finish and record the time. It takes MUCH longer to do it the second way. That's a very tangible way to convince people to design their work time to happen in focused sessions without interruptions.

    That also makes the point that multitasking is not a real thing. A better word is switch-tasking. You can only really do one thing at a time and most of the time its more time efficient to finish one thing before starting another. I've noticed how much time I waste switch-tasking. This book was worth the read.

  • The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World

    The Introvert Advantage dispels common myths about introverts - they’re not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial - and explains how they are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation such as chitchat, phone calls, parties, or office meetings can easily become "too much". Most importantly, it thoroughly refutes many introverts’ belief that something is wrong with them. Instead, it helps them recognize their inner strengths - their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration.

    Robert says: "Read the book Quiet instead"
    "Too subjective and unfocused"

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

    I bought this to try to understand introverts better. It started out good citing studies and giving some good general information. Later chapters were unfocused and very boring. She even gets into how an introvert should approach dating. The last half of the book was too subjective to hold my interest.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Marti Olsen Laney, PsyD again?

    Probably not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narration was fine


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Introvert Advantage?

    Drop the last half to two thirds of the book and it would be a great book.
