I really enjoyed this audiobook. The author recounts various stories from his time in the military as a Major General accompanied by lessons in leadership that all manner of leaders can use. There's something here for leaders in business, church, the military, and even little league coaches or Boy Scout leaders. If you're not driving while you're listening, I highly suggest taking notes; this is a great book. Good choice of narrator, as it isn't monotone reading. Highly recommended for today's and tomorrow's leaders.

This was my first experience with this author and narrator and I loved them both. Although I'm pretty advanced in investments compared to the Average Joe, I really appreciated that Brian took a step back from all the heavy financial jargon and number crunching and really answered what this is all about. Knowing the technical aspects of investing isn't enough. Brian presents a real platform to understanding what wealth building is all about, and from that spring board we're better prepared to succeed. Outstanding work and highly recommended.

Enlightening facts about how various sects of Jews practice Judaism sprinkled with an invitation for Jews to take a look at Yeshua. I found it quite eye-opening that he mentions the research of Yacov Rambsel, a Jewish Messianic pastor in San Antonio, Texas. In Isaiah 53:10, if you count every 20th Hebrew letter in the verse it spells "Yeshua is my name." This is repeated over and over again throughout the Hebrew Bible, and thus lets you know who the author is...and that Yeshua is the truth.

Yeshua said, "But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." (Matthew 24:37)

If you multiply the 370 days Noah was in the ark by 24 hours you get 8,880 hours. A man born 8/8/80 would have been conceived in November with the standard of 266 days of gestation.

AMERICAN BORN HEBREW MESSIAH = 248 (English Ordinal Gematria)
Conceived During Scorpio = 248 (English)

Do the "Days of Noah" refer to the 8/8/80 birthdate?

DAYS OF NOAH = 108 (English)
Date of Birth = 108 (English)

I would be looking for an American man born 8/8/80 with a birthmark on his right thigh (Revelation 19:16).

I've been very out of touch with vegan activism for years. I went vegan, read a few books, did a little activism and then got burned out. I realized that many forms of vegan activism annoy more people than they awaken. Veganism is ethically sound, and makes so much sense environmentally, as well as from a health standpoint, and yet a lot of vegans come off as pushy snobs who think they're morally superior to everyone else.

I lost my belief that my clique is better than your clique soon after high school, but many vegans want to hold on to that belief. Honestly, I particularly don't care if our vegan clique is better than everyone else's if it's so busy patting itself on the back that its accomplishments move at a snail's pace.

Leenaert has a real strategy to quicken the liberation of our non-human friends. There is a way to expand our ranks without increasing the amount of people who roll their eyes and sigh, "Oh God, get ready for another vegan sermon," when we announce at the table that we're vegan. I don't see how anyone can possibly argue with Leenaert's overall strategy...except those who have never actually taken the time to read [or listen to] his book (you know who you are...those vegans who would rather keep their nose in the air than to look at the real studies, and the real math, on what strategies actually work to decrease the amount of animal suffering).

I've been reading Walker and Kingsley for a while now, and I'm glad to see them coming to Audible. I think they chose a great narrator and the book was fantastic. Obviously, this isn't for everybody, so you have to know what you're getting into. This is gay romance and it's Mpreg (please look that up).

Five stars all around boys. Good job.

I think this book could really be the next How to Win Friends & Influence People. I honestly thought it was just going to rehash a bunch of stuff from Dale Carnegie, but Jonathan Green manages to deliver a bunch of ideas on winning friends, and getting people to like you, that are very unique and insightful.

A of great points are brought up in this book that you don't often hear in debates about Christianity. I think he's right that too much attention is given to the subject of the existence or non-existence of God. Who cares?! Christianity is so screwed up in so many different ways that it doesn't matter if their god existed or not, no sane person should want to follow or praise such an insane god. Moreover, Christianity has a history of slavery that the author outlines quite nicely at the end of the book. Why the heck would I want to follow a religion that doesn't have one thing to say against slavery in their bible, and in fact repeatedly endorses slavery?

Christianity is just stupid. If you think I'm being too harsh, just listen to this audiobook.

As someone whose been self-publishing for years, but has struggled to actually make some real money doing it, I found Raza's book a breath of fresh air. Raza outlines why so many other "turn key" methods of making a passive income are a waste of time, or just aren't as easy as some proponents make it out to be, but he also details exactly how to do his method. This is a great step-by-step guide that isn't bogged down by fluff or useless banter. The author has a system and it shares exactly how he does it.

I got so tired of dating women whose view of the world was tainted by feminism that I decided to go MGTOW (i.e., remaining single by choice). Tim Patten is right: masculinity is the golden standard. The problem is that these ditzy women don't stop to think about all the positive things have brought into the world, and all the sacrifices we have made for women. This is a very refreshing audiobook that helps to mend the wounds made by feminists, who are always yelling and screaming like banshees that masculinity is toxic. No it isn't! Masculinity is the gold standard of human excellence!

This is a mafia story that hooks you in. I really like that Gunner Lindbloom periodically added in some history about La Cosa Nostra. It's nice to read (or listen) to a book that is written by someone who was actually part of "The Family." Gunner has written some pretty colorful characters and a detailed story about how a few young men grew their power and struggled to be recognized within the mafia. I could see this as a Hollywood movie or even a mini-series.

The performance by John Martinson was excellent and it was a nice touch to have the female characters actually be done by a lady. I'm looking forward to volume two. Highly recommended!
