Self-awareness-knowing your nature, your abilities, and how you react to people and situations-may well be the greatest life-management skill you can have. The Acorn Principle is a guide to doing a complete "life checkup" that will help you pinpoint your talents and strengths. Nurturing those strengths is the key to the success you've always wanted but didn't know how to attain. By listening to this book and doing the simple exercises, you'll learn things about yourself that you and most people don't even suspect.

Where does Your Way to Success rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is probably the best value in my Audible Library. 150 books -among the best in each of their categories--summaries brief but most often capturing the key idea (s) to be found ing the books--at a great price.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Your Way to Success?

Memorable when I noticed that the book kept moving through the different books-and keeping my moving interest at the same time.

What did you learn from Your Way to Success that you would use in your daily life?

That so often I can revisit at any place in the book and find ideas to keep me freshly interested..

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book highly as the varied content not only is interesting but synergizes with itself-combining a great investment of time and money.

Where does Inner Voice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would say this book would be in the top 10%. I like books that have process and understanding as their basis.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Russ Whitney has interested me as I have followed him. His openness to share is refreshing and leaves an example of a path.

Which scene was your favorite?

The whole book is an experience so I don't have a particular scene-it is more a tapestry to me.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When you realized that what he was doing, wasn't working and that it was time for a change.

Learn to approach the critical decisions in your life with a more seasoned, educated eye with this fascinating 24-lecture series that explores how individuals, groups, and organizations make effective decisions. The heart of this accessible series is a thorough examination of decision making at three key levels. First, you'll look at decisions made at the individual level, where, among the many things you'll learn is that intuition is more than just a gut instinct and, in fact, represents a powerful pattern recognition capability.

What disappointed you about The Art of Critical Decision Making?

The digital study guide I found out can only be purchased if you purchase a digital audio copy from Great Courses. A printed Study Guide can be purchased but not a digital copy. Seems a contradiction

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The information on Critical Decision Making is well thought out. The examples that the presenter used were they also in the Study Guide-yes, I bought a printed version, it would make the Study Guide, more supportive of the experience and valuable resource.

Which scene was your favorite?

The process of "sunk cost" where the nature of a sunk cost process overrides many other thought processes of handling risk, and and therefore not allowing for changes when appropriate.

Any additional comments?

Content wise, I am very satisfied with the content of the program, Audible, why not arrange that if it is available elsewhere, on their site, (a digital study guide) to make it available on yours.
