    "Good Stuff"

    This book covered a lot of different topics, all of which were very interesting to me. As complex as some of the articles were, I never felt lost. Great inside look at the lives and personality profiles of Michael Miliken and Mary Meaker and a great analysis of Japanese economy. While it is reporting last years best stories, they are still relevant. Plus with 16 hours of content it will take you longer than a 2 days to finish it.

    "Who Picked These Stories?"

    This was like being read beadtime stories from a Newsweek magazine. In my opinion these are hardly the best business stories of the year and of little value as an audible option.
