Power is changing. Private corner offices and management by decree are out, as is unquestioned trust in the government and media. These former pillars of traditional power have been replaced by networks of informed citizens who collectively wield more power over their personal lives, employers, and worlds than ever before. So how do you navigate this new landscape and come out on top?  Adam Grant, Wharton organizational psychologist, went to the World Economic Forum in Davos, the epicenter of power, and sat down with thought leaders from around the world, to find out.

The book aint half bad! It is fairly decent and i was happy and excited to listen to it. The end was a bit short and there could have been one or two turns more on the story.

Those who enjoyed His Dark Materials - Series will probably also like this one.

First and far most when reading understand that i really like the book but at the same time i feel it was some what lacking some epic sides.

Reader is splendid! Brilliant job! I just love how she does Captain North and i agree with other readers that if some were to make a film out of it. North should be played by Mr.Depp

I kind of hate how the beging of the book feels like alice in the wonder land and i feel that most of the epic scenes could have been pushed to be longer and more detailed so that reader would get to enjoy them more. Now they just flash trough. This is why no 5 stars overall.

Nevertheless i highly recommend this book for each and every who enjoy a book of fantasy.

Lyra is rushing to the cold, far North, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steal - including her friend Roger. North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world. Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want. But what Lyra doesn't know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other....

What about Stephen Fry’s performance did you like?

Stephen Fry was exceptional, you know you just dont want to listen to any one other after him, and thats kind of the down side coz he is so good and so talented that the next at least two readers normally sound so crap after him. I would say bravo!

Any additional comments?

Would definitely recommend this book for basically anyone who just wants brilliant story to be read by and amazing reader.

For a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights brought peace and order to the Galactic Republic, aided by their connection to the mystical energy field known as the Force.

Now Emperor Palpatine, once Chancellor of the Republic and secretly a Sith follower of the dark side of the Force, has brought his own peace and order to the galaxy. Peace through brutal repression, and order through increasing control of his subjects’ lives.

This book was better than i expected. It shares alot of the knowledge i graved after clone wars and before the rebels tv series.

Absolute recomendation for those who enjoy the new tv series!

Only one hick up. Sometimes it was hard to get in streight away wich character the reader was playing but i think thats a minor thing and the overal problem when comparing audio books and normal books
