Would you listen to Back to Work again? Why?

Yes, good and impartial analysis of the state of the affairs in the US.

What other book might you compare Back to Work to and why?

Common Wealth by Jeffrey Sachs, but Sachs book had significantly lot more beef on depth and breadth.

Have you listened to any of Bill Clinton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

My Life (unabridged)

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Mr Clinton views of G8 countries as competitors when it comes to Government services, planning, and global positioning.

Any additional comments?

It is a good positive thoughts book where Mr Clinton decided to air his views against the rising tide of disappointment with the Democratic among the American people.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

A well articulated book from what seems to be a master communicator and an intellect. Secretary Rumsfeld certainly knows how to make an argument. It is difficult however to imagine that in this century with all the intelligence mechanisms and technology available to the US war decisions that led to the perish of hundreds of thousands of human beings were made on the intuition of a President and his Secretary of Defense. No wonder Secretary Rumsfeld had to use the second half of his bio to explain and defend the unjustified war. To better understand the case of Secretary Rumsfeld, I suggest you read or hear

No One Would Listen audiobook cover art

An almost failed financial thriller

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 07-25-11

This book could have been an excellent reading/hearing if it was trimmed significantly to eliminate the repeating unnecessary in your eyes/ears chest beating by the Author. He really did not have to do this as it was implicit in the facts stated. He also wasted too much time and effort in trying to create a script for a financial thriller by repeatedly trying to show how scared he was that Bernie would plant a bomb under his hood. No kidding...that sounded like reading a Mafia novel. Ironically, in the interview Bernie gave from prison he claimed the Author was irrelevant!! Could have done a better job...

Ambani, Oru Vetri Kathai audiobook cover art

Buyer Beware: Not an English language book

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 05-24-09

I downloaded this book thinking that I will be hearing a book in English language about Ambani only to discover that the book is read in a non-English language. Unless you are a fluent Indian language speaker, don't waste your money. Message to Audible: since you are now selling non-English language books, kindly highlight the language of each Audible book so that long time Audible customers (6 yrs) like myself don't get disappointed.

The Tipping Point audiobook cover art

Fantastic read

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 09-07-07

A book about common sense.. It's the best answer to the famous saying "don't be silly." It is true that "small signs of disorder..can be tipping points." The key question is obviously how to distinguish between a tipping point and a silly matter. This is where the book gave some insights. Worth the time, and the money..

Good stuff

Reviewed: 09-07-07

A book with good insights into the M&A business. Good historical perspective and valuable lessons to those who have Wall Street aspirations. The Author however spent more time than he should have on irrelevant matters - maybe in an attempt to spice the book - but winded up diluting what could have been otherwise an excellent book.

Mergers & Acquisitions audiobook cover art

Waste of time and Money

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 09-07-07

This book has nothing to do with mergers and acquisitions...nor with the investment banking culture. The title is grossly misleading. The book is a poor quality attempt to create an erotica story. Not worth the money, but more important not worth your time..if what you are seeking is some insight into the M&A world.
