The return of the long-lost ten tribes, a new Jerusalem being built, heavenly messengers from beyond this life.... It may sound like fantasy, but according to the scriptures, all of these things will really come to pass before our Savior comes again. In fact, these signs were designed by the Lord to alert true believers to his imminent return. The question is, Will you recognize the signs?

  • This is not the book. It's a fireside talk

Good content but NOT a book recording!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend the printed book, yes; but not this audio recording.

What aspect of David Ridges’s performance would you have changed?

This audio version is a recording of David giving a talk. I would have replaced it with David narrating his book.

Any additional comments?

David is a good speaker and I like what I learned from this audio recording, but I expected to hear a book narration, not a talk. Nothing on Audible.com's website for this book indicated that it was a talk. Furthermore, this recording only covers about 35 of the author's interpretations of the signs of the times. I'm very disappointed, Audible.

By the man who helped invent the red-hot management process known as "Scrum", Scrum unveils what is wrong with the way we currently do work, and how a simple set of principles, applied in exactly the right sequence, can accelerate productivity and quality as much as 1200 percent. Scrum (which gets its name from the formation in rugby in which the whole team locks its arms to gain control of the ball) is the reason that Amazon can launch a new feature on its website every day.

An extremely practical book! I found myself applying the principles of Scrum in virtually all aspects of my life. I'm loving the results! The narrator has a rough start but he improves as the book goes on. I had to rewind a few times to hear the tail end of his sentences. Well worth the content, though!
