    What made the experience of listening to The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business the most enjoyable?

    It's packed with amazing ideas to succeed both professionally and personally. The suggestions presented are practical instead of theoretical which is what they teach in school. I plan to re-listen to this book regularly.

    Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.

    Overall

    The first half hour was decent but from that point it degenerated into pointless swear word after swear word. I was so disgusted I stopped listening about forty-five minutes in and have deleted the file from my computer. Waste of a good credit.

    Leadership by the Book is an exceptional audiobook, brimming with insights, tools, and tactics for becoming a successful leader. Written in the parable format of Ken Blanchard's best-selling The One Minute Manager and Raving Fans, it tells the story of a professor and minister who school a young professional in management skills and ethics.

    Jennifer says: "This is NOT related to the OMM series"
    "Bad literary style"
    Overall

    The principles presented are excellent but I didn't like the author's "Character A reminisces with Character B about a scene from years ago word-for-word to teach the lesson to the reader". It seemed very forced and distracted me from what I was trying to learn.

    The Executive Board of an exclusive men's club meets to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    Joseph says: "Good, but the series is getting forced."
    "Too much cussing"
    Overall

    When every fourth word is some kind of swear word it distracts from the narration and makes me want to plug my ears. I didn't even finish the book it was that outrageous.
