102 Minutes audiobook cover art

Not what I expected

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-26-07

After listening to this audio book, I had to go back and read the summary of the book again because I thought I had mis-read what this book was about. Turns out, I had not...very disappointed in the content, I anticipated "tales" from inside the towers and what I found was a lot of political statements of what was wrong with the whole situation. From the actual architecture to the disconnect between emergency organizations. Although I usually try not to give to much away in my reviews, this time I feel that it is warranted...the ending was really the only part that focused on those "tales" but it was brief.

From Baghdad, With Love audiobook cover art

GREAT!!!

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-25-07

From the content...to the narrator, I enjoyed every minute of this book. During 75% of the listen, I was at the edge of my seat!!! In order not to give too much away...the narrator was fantastic, I laughed...I got a little teary-eyed...there were moments that my mouth was agape from the graphic nature of some of the content. Overall, I very quick listen and every minute was enjoyed - I have over an hour commute each way to/from work and I even found myself do a couple extra circles around my house to listen even longer.

The Rule of Four audiobook cover art

Had potential

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-25-07

This audio book was very disappointing all around. The characters were barely developed, the "added" romance/relationship seemed like it was just thrown in, and there was absolulte no closure at all...I like an open-ended novel just as much as the next person but with The Rule of Four, there was unfinished business every where. The narrator was very monotonous and overall the book had a great concept but no substance...I couldn't wait till it was over, yet I continued to listen thinking that something significant was going to happen...maybe I missed something...would not recommend.

Not half as good as FISH

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-20-07

I was very excited to listen to this audio book since many years ago, this author changed my professional and personal life with his book FISH. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed...it gave a cute little story but lacked the "punch" that I was looking for. There are a few concepts that I was able to implement in my daily work but not as many as I had hoped. The audio is easy to follow, has a cute story, but overall lacks the substance that FISH had / has.

Easy to follow, easy to implement

I found this audio book very easy to follow and it had information that you could use today to start increasing your book of business. Some / most of the information may be a bit basic for the seasoned professional but I found it to be a good refresher to bring my career back to basics and MUST for those new in the field.
