South African-born Elon Musk is the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity. Musk wants to save our planet; he wants to send citizens into space, to form a colony on Mars; he wants to make money while doing these things; and he wants us all to know about it. He is the real-life inspiration for the Iron Man series of films starring Robert Downey, Jr. The personal tale of Musk's life comes with all the trappings one associates with a great, drama-filled story.

The story of the turtles is one of great mystery, yet very inspiring. Although the author might be somewhat ‘aggressively’ defensive about the book at some times, the information seems to be well researched and curated. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, though I am not an experienced trader myself. Joel Richards is a very good narrator, and did a great job woth this book.

Stretching across 500 miles of northern Spain, the Camino de Santiago has been a pilgrimage route for centuries. Setting off as a competitive, shrewd negotiator with little patience for small talk, Victor Prince emerged as a very different person - more balanced, more caring, more present in the moment, but looking to the future. Prince translates this growth experience into seven leadership skills, each linked to values that have guided Camino travelers for centuries.

The stories and lessons Victor Prince describes in his book are purely inspirational. This was the first book I have ever had the privilege to read (listen to) about the Camino, and I believe because of this reflection will not be the last. The narrator did an awesome job of capturing the author’s honesty and passion.

All our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favorites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not: computers, too, face the same constraints, so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such problems for decades.

I found it difficult to stay focused on the content while listening to this audiobook. Despite this, I found there to be many gold nuggets of ‘wow’ moments, but during other times the theories and technical discussions seemed to be a bit lost on me. I would probably have to listen to it a few more times to get the full value of the content. Still worth it, though.
