the first couple chapters are dense. I felt like maybe I didn't pick good book, until he got to about 1/3 through, and from then on I was hooked. I am probably going to go become a farmer now, thanks Josh tickell!

Like most comprehensive books we'll start with the basics and go from there. I've tried to make this information make sense even if you've no previous science or agricultural knowledge. Even if you've never so much as had a goldfish you can still master aquaponics.

Every leader must be ready and willing to take charge, to make hard, crucial calls for the good of the team and the mission. Something much more difficult to understand is that in order to be a good leader, one must also be a good follower. This is a dichotomy - a Dichotomy of Leadership. It is, as authors Jocko Willink and Leif Babin explained in their best-selling first audiobook, Extreme Ownership, “Simple, Not Easy”.

the narrator was obviously using words that he has either never used before or is not old enough to have used them a lot. He gets stuck on words that are pretty fundamental to what he's talking about, and leaves you thinking that he probably should have practice saying the script before recording the audio book. The book is only 30 minutes long or so but he spends a third of that talking about how to unbox your 3D printer. honestly, you can skip this whole book entirely and learn more on Google in just a couple minutes.
the book is written and narrated by the same 13 years old person, which is fine, but also sort of shows that he didn't have enough people proof read this before publishing it. if it wasn't such a hassle to get money back on purchase books, this would be one of those ones I'd get my money back on. don't bother wasting your $2.50 on this book.

Google's AdWords platform enables you to create pay-per-click advertisements that appear as "sponsored links" when someone searches for content related to your product or service. You bid for the position to place your ad, and you only pay when someone clicks. It's that simple. If used correctly, AdWords can garner higher targeted traffic, which in turn will increase your conversion rates and profits.

In this "mini-book", P.T. Barnum gives practical rules that allowed him to stay out of debt and to acquire wealth. The "rules" are illustrated by homespun stories. While some of these of this may seem like common sense, it is the kind of common sense that Wall Street, the government and many ordinary people seem to have forgetten about in recent years. This is a small book but one that could have large consequences for your financial future.

this was an incredible book, not only in the lessons you learn through Tony's words, but his performance and ease of listening is top-notch also. I really really enjoyed every facet about this book, and I would recommend it to any entrepreneur or upper management type person that's looking to gain some insight in taking their own company to the next level. This book also turned me on to Tony's other book, tribal leadership, that's also really great and geared more towards a informational on how to achieve a great company culture that Tony's consulate talking about in this book delivery happiness. Overall Incredible Book and would absolutely recommend it.

I spent years wanting to start a blog. I hated my job and knew I didn't want to spend a third of my day miserable...but looking through blogging books, all I found were generic strategies and false promises. They all promised huge income but none really told me how much bloggers make or how to make money online. I said screw it and started my blogs anyway in 2014. I quit my job and spent 60+ hours a week building my sites and learning how to make money blogging.

the book has decent information, but the narrator stumbles through pretty much every single sentence in the book. It honestly feels like this is the first time the narrator has picked up the book to read it at all. Some parts are good to listen to because it's smooth and easy, and then next Parts he stumbles through the sentence so many times over and over that it gets frustrating to listen to. Pro tip for this narrator, TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE!! Do yourself a favor and read the book and practice a few times before you actually publish the audio version to this book, literally exactly like you day to do in this gat dang book!. This tip should go without saying, but obviously needs to be said after listening to this thing. it takes what could be a decent book and turns it into garbage.

the book was meh, about half of the book was her going on these little interior dialogue quips that were honestly nothing but annoying. she cries for the last few minutes of the book and it was kind of embarrassing to listen to. a little less than half of the book was actually good usable content, and if we could get a shortened version of the book with just that in it, it probably would have been a decent book. every single time she went on one of those interior dialogue quips I felt the need to hit the fast-forward button, they were so dumb and dizzy blonde girl sounding that it really made me cringe. kind of seems like the biggest accomplishment in her life is the 5-minute ride to the airport she gave to Gary vaynerchuk. the book is very aimed for women, so as a guy probably avoid this one and read a different book.
