During his more than 30 years as a vascular surgeon, Richard Furman literally held clogged arteries and diseased hearts in his hands and wondered why the person lying on the table hadn't been more careful. Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in America, and in most cases it is completely preventable. So why are we slowly destroying our bodies and killing ourselves? And what can we do to turn it around?

What would have made What I Didn't Learn from Google but Wish I Had better?

This book need more on the, how to get rich and less of the history of Google.

What could Jamie McIntyre have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He should have used more techniques for SEO and other strategies.

Being a parent is the toughest job in the world, especially with the increasing number of negative influences and pitfalls facing our kids today, from childhood obesity and out-of-control celebrity culture to the dangers of the internet and credit card debt. Larry Winget has never been one to shy away from tough truths, and what he says here may well be difficult for some parents to swallow: we are in the midst of a crisis with our kids.

He uses his straight to the point personality to focus the problem where it belongs, on the parents. As parents we need to wake up and take care of our kids - bravo Larry. I am listening a second time too.

  • Too abstract, not enough practical advice

Extremly Scientific

Overall

Reviewed: 04-04-11

The book reads like a PHD thesis. Great if you are in the business and can easily follow the "lingo," but hard to follow and comfortably understand if you are listening for pleasure. He also uses too many fantastical references that make his main point hard to catch.

The new rules of social media are constantly changing. The world of online video is exploding. Hollywood is getting into the game, professional actors and writers are joining in, and independent producers are finding their niche. Now, companies are wide-awake to the new opportunity that video presents for product and brand promotion, as well as long-term customer engagement.

This audio is somewhat dry & long because the author describes most every type of camera, lighting system and sound system used for video. I wanted to know quick short cuts about video and editing not model numbers and ratings... Was not what i expected.

Beloved author Henry Blackaby and his son Richard help those who are listening to discern the voice of God, to identify ways He speaks, and to respond to revelations of His will. God speaks to individuals in ways that are personal and unique to each person. God will never say anything that contravenes what He has said in the Bible. After you learn to listen to God, hearing from God will be as natural as communicating with a close friend.

This is a very long, 44 hour, sales pitch promoting his Australian based "academy," "seminar," or "home course." Also, it is very hard to differentiate Napolean's words from his twists and interpretations.

I have never written a bad review before this audio book and I tried to like it! I seems to linger around the "tech" outcomes and not the reasons WHY and HOW companies like WIKI, GOOGLE, and FACEBOOK did things. I am the type of person that wants to learn WHY and HOW of things...
