it is among the best nonfiction books, funny, smart and well written.
Anything by Malcolm Gladwell.
Amazing voice, amazing narration. The book is funny and the man helps to convey that.
You are now less dumb, congratulations...
Couldn't say. Maybe a more patient person? Maybe a more inquisitive person? Maybe no one? Maybe someone who gave it a higher rating?
Not Susan's Fault?
I like the way the author approached her research. She revealed some interesting facts and misconceptions about introverts based in scientific research.
The science behind it.
Kathe was good. She, like all narrators, helps you keep your hands free to do other things while listening.
That introverts are more sensitive to environmental stimuli.
This book just popular enough that everyone knows the title and few have read the book. People should actually read it. It is more than just the next hot thing. It is a good book.
simple. clear. quick.
applying minimalism to financial philosophy. nice.
it was good.
Yes, it was short and even shorter that i listened on 1.5 speed.
A nice inexpensive book. I think I will listen again. It a great pep talk.
Beautiful, logical, revolutionary
The way the author reframes the discussion about power is really meaningful.
no scenes. i like the references to meditation.
There is a lot of insight in this book. But the ability to control your mind is indeed the key to being happy, right now.
Great book, awesome author. Well done.
Jen is very funny, honest and vulnerable. It is nice to have a fresh take on this new age self help stuff
I don't know
She is very cleaver and enthusiastic. Not all authors are good narrators, but Jen nailed it.
The part where she says watch how you think and talk about yourself. This is critically important.
Great book, fun listen, well done.
I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about living a life that reflects who they truly are
Hum, there is nothing quite like it. Other business books are not as good because Essentialism is really a practice that the individual develops in order to live a more authentic life.
Come one, y'all know there are no characters in this book. But Greg was a solid narrator.
I will apply the "less but better" mantra to my work and personal life.
This book is great for me because It really is about how to achieve the biggest bang for your efforts by finding the truly valuable things and focusing on them. The idea that 90+ percent of our opportunities, information, interactions are noise, are unimportant, are time wasters is really revolutionary in a world where so many of us are trying to figure out how to manage the deluge of nonsense (without first recognizing it as nonsense). Having this new perspective provides much needed clarity of purpose that should be valuable to any reader.
Probably not. I love Justine Eyre as a narrator.
A Calculated Life
She is pretty awesome. Very passionate voice. It adds dimension to the characters
Nope. Unless some awesome actors were in it.
The first novel in this series was a refreshing take on romance. But this story is based on a misunderstanding taken to the extreme. I also wondered why there is no mention of the heroin's family and why she didn't lean on them for support during rough times. The heroin is way to fragile for my taste. Even Cinderella didn't play the victim.
I haven't read the print edition
I love the imperfect, determined and complicated protagonist. Loved that there are no real antiheroes-just complex people.
She can deliver a joke well, and I like how she choses to emphases words in a way that adds new meaning to sentences. She is great at capturing angst especially in children's voices.
Made me laugh and grin. Twisted my stomach into knots at times too.
One of my favorite books by this author. I loved the treatment of the African American characters. But more than that, I loved the story of revenge, forgiveness and redemption. Also, it was funny and the story had many unexpected surprises. Almost every character had tremendous development.
The story was too wordy, repetitive, and didn't really have a plot. No real drama here. Shallow main character who simply isn't bright enough to be a doctor. The banter wasn't funny, the characters aren't really developed. I don't know why anyone would be interested in dating the doctor lady, given that she was a raging b*tch at the beginning of the book. She didn't bring much to the relationship and boyfriend did all the heavy lifting.
She is just not that good. She reads too slowly and doesn't do men well. She may have been more interesting if the story was more compelling.
Almost all of them.
I have no idea why this book had 4 stars. It was a painful listen. I have to power through it just to prove to myself that I have indeed predicted the ending.
don't know...i don't read books anymore, apparently...i have 81 books in my audible library, and its only been 5 months. I don't have the print version...
When Nick told Maggie she was in love with him, Loved how he saw right through her.
Nick-he was awesome,
Made me smile like a fool,,,
I read this series out of order, and saved this one for last, because I didn't like Maggie in the other books...particularly the first one. I love Maggie in this book. I loved how Nick saw right through her, and refused to indulge her in nonsense. Loved how she learned being alpha meant more than just having her way. Leadership and bullying are not the same thing. I feel like her character really developed in this book.
