  • Secrets of Closing the Sale

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By Zig Ziglar

    All of us are involved in selling every day. Whenever we present a product or a principle, inform a client, or instruct a child, we are engaging in the art of effective persuasion. Allow America's master of the art of selling to explain proven, practical sales techniques all of us can use every day.

    D. Gamble says: "Dated materal"
    "Absolutely Fantastic!!!"

    Zig Ziglar's approach to sales does not get old, because no matter what time in history we live, we'll always be creatures of emotions. From the days of Pharaoh's to today. We think and work the same. I would highly recommend this book. It's very educational and the use of humor is perfect.
    Don't waste your time thinking. Just buy this book.

  • The Count of Monte Cristo

    • UNABRIDGED (47 hrs)
    • By Alexandre Dumas
    • Narrated By John Lee

    Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything: a fine reputation, an appointment as captain of a ship, and the heart of a beautiful woman. But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dantès is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d'If prison. But it is there that Dantès learns of a vast hidden treasure.

    "Absolutely AMAZING!!! Read this review."

    This is an amazing book. If you have watched the movie(which was also awesome!) you'll find the book a little different. Of course it's impossible to fit a 47 hour long book into a 2.5 hour movie. The book is 47 hours long and has 119 chapters. So I recommend you listening to this book as if you're watching a tv series otherwise it may take over your life - so expect to listen to it over a period of time. The narrator is as good as the story itself. This will be one of the best books you'll have listened to. Download it and enjoy! :)

  • How Come That Idiot's Rich and I'm Not?

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Robert Shemin
    • Narrated By Robert Shemin

    In How Come That Idiot's Rich and I'm Not? best-selling author Robert Shemin reveals for the first time the inner-circle secrets of the mega-wealthy. Have you ever wondered why some people attract wealth while others stay financially trapped and in debt? The key is wealth-friendly, upside-down thinking. Stick with all the old moneymaking rules and stay broke. Break them and get rich. This is the audiobook that shows you how.

    Amazon Customer says: "Pretty interesting."
    "Pretty interesting."

    The book was interesting. It opens your eyes to opportunities in life that's lost just because you're too stupid (or proud) to take advantage of. I have applied some of its principles and am enjoying benefits from it. Not an amazing book, but definitely something to consider.

  • Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By David Allen
    • Narrated By David Allen

    From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done has the potential to transform the way you work - and the way you experience work. At any level of implementation, David Allen's entertaining and thought-provoking advice shows you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.

    Blue Skies Ahead says: "Get the "Paper Book" instead."
    "Too long for its message."

    I think this book was way too long for the message it presents. A lot of it is just commom sense. I got one good point from it which is this: "if it takes you 2 minutes to accomplish or less, do it now!".

  • River God: A Novel of Ancient Egypt

    • UNABRIDGED (24 hrs and 39 mins)
    • By Wilbur Smith
    • Narrated By Dick Hill
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Ancient Egypt. Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on gold. A legend shattered by greed. Now the Valley of Kings lies ravaged by war, drained of its lifeblood, as weak men inherit the cherished crown. On the eve of the festival of Osiris, the loyal subjects of the Pharaoh gather in Thebes to pay tribute to their leader.

    Exploding with all the passion and rage of a bygone time, River God is a masterpiece of historical writing.

    mjshuff says: "River God review"
    "WOW! What an awesome book!"

    This is just an absolutely amazing book! The story and the narrator were excellent. I must say that I was quite shocked to find out that in ancient Egypt they married girls who were 12 years old. Also, I was a little disturbed by the reference of masters having slave boys which nowadays is definitely child molestation. I guess hitorically speaking, that's what life was like back then. I must say that the narrator was fantastic. Just to give you an idea, when Taita was telling about the day he was made an eunuch, the narrator told it so well that as I was driving home from work, I literally almost fainted - I had to pull over and recompose myself. I guess it was so real that it felt like I was there watching the castration being done. The story itself was amazing. This is another must listen.

  • The Egyptian: Volume 1

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Mika Waltari
    • Narrated By Charlton Griffin

    The world of ancient Egypt springs magnificently to life in this astonishing historical novel of love, war, political intrigue, and religious revolution. Told from the first person point of view, it is the story of Sinuhe, physician to the royal court of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and his successors in the middle of the tumultuous 14th century B.C.

    Fernando says: "Best historical Novel Ever written"
    "Amazing story! Great narrator! A must listen."

    This was an excellent book. I'm definitely going to get volume 2 for I'm curious to see how the story unveils. I wonder if Sinue is ever going to see Nepha Nepha again. I'm also going to rent the movie and watch it as there is an old Hollywood version of "the Egiptian". If you like anything Egiptian you must listen to this book. Really, it was just awesome!

    Even though this is a fictional diary of cleopatra, it sounds like it actually could be the real thing. The caracters and the historical value is well developed in the book. I really enjoyed it.

  • You're Broke Because You Want to Be

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 18 mins)
    • By Larry Winget
    • Narrated By Larry Winget
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The New York Times best-selling author of It's Called Work for a Reason! and star of the A&E's reality show Big Spender cleans up America's personal-finance crisis with a butt-kicking, straight-talking, proven approach to prosperity.

    Amazon Customer says: "It is a nice kick on the butt. I recommend it."
    "It is a nice kick on the butt. I recommend it."

    This book is a reality check for all the lazy and irresponsible people out there. People have the habit of saying, "I need to MAKE more money," and complain. What they do need is "to EARN more money"! So use your brain and you can be a winner. Unfortunately in life there are "winners" and "loosers" and this book may not be the right choice for "lazy people" because it will hurt their feelings. But if you have a winning attitude who's fallen behind a little in managing your money, this is definetely the right book for you.

  • Roots: The Saga of an American Family

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 7 mins)
    • By Alex Haley
    • Narrated By Avery Brooks
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A masterpiece like none other, Brooks’ powerful performance of Haley’s words has been known to leave listeners in tears. It begins with a birth in an African village in 1750, and ends two centuries later at a funeral in Arkansas. And in that time span, an unforgettable cast of men, women, and children come to life, many of them based on the people from Alex Haley's own family tree.

    Danica says: "A Masterpiece"
    "One of the best ever!"

    No wonder this is an American Classic. It is one of the best books ever in my opinion. It aroused in me the interest to find out about my ancerstors. Listen to this one, you won't regret it.

  • Elantris

    • UNABRIDGED (27 hrs and 31 mins)
    • By Brandon Sanderson
    • Narrated By Jack Garrett
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Legendary science fiction author Orson Scott Card calls Brandon Sanderson a writer to watch, and Publishers Weekly says his debut is "outstanding." Once the godlike rulers of the capital of Arelon, the inhabitans of Elantris have been imprisoned within themselves, unable to die after the city's magic failed years ago. But when a new prince falls victim to the curse, he refuses to accept his fate.

    Lore says: "What if your body could never heal?"
    "Excellent. Very well written."

    This is the first Sci-fi book I listen to and I just loved it!!! I usually like more of the self-developement or business books, but this book "Elantris" blew me away. Very good story. I would highly recommend it.
