Admen, Mad Men, and How Advertising Really Works is written to be easily digestible by interns, CEOS, or anyone who has ever watched a television commercial or clicked on a banner ad. Irreverent, packed with useful information, and unflinchingly honest, it is a serious business book by a seriously funny man and a must for anyone who lives, works, or plays in today's commercial culture.
The real agency world... I loved it! I will definitely be listening to it again

Stein on Writing provides immediately useful advice for writers of fiction and nonfiction, whether newcomers or accomplished professionals. As Sol Stein, renowned editor, author, and instructor, explains, "This is not a book of theory. It is a book of usable solutions, how to fix writing that is flawed, how to improve writing that is good, how to create interesting writing in the first place."
This is not a book that you will say you have heard before. This book is one that you will say you need to hear again.
For any writer, Stein's words will be like gold. I only wish he would speak of grammar.
E.B. Whites, Elements of Style could very well be right next to this (aside from length).

C. S. Lewis was a profound thinker with the rare ability to communicate the philosophical and theological rationale of Christianity in simple yet amazingly effective ways. God in the Dock contains 48 essays and 12 letters written by Lewis between 1940 and 1963 for a wide variety of publications.
I don't why someone said this was boring.
If anyone knows the works of C.S. Lewis, they know that it is so rich that you have to listen to it again and again to get its full benefit.
The narrator is perfect. Sound like the Mere Christianity narrator. I am pumped that this book has been published.
Music, sweet music
