  • The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo

  • Narrated by: Amy Schumer
  • Length: 8 hrs and 1 min
  • Unabridged

In The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy mines her past for stories about her teenage years, her family, relationships, and sex and shares the experiences that have shaped who she is - a woman with the courage to bare her soul to stand up for what she believes in, all while making us laugh. Down to earth and relatable, frank and unapologetic, Amy Schumer is one of us: She relies on her sister for advice, still hangs out with her high school pals, and continues to navigate the ever-changing boundaries in love, work, and life.

Would you try another book from Amy Schumer and/or Amy Schumer?

This book needs to get a lot better just to reach the level of 'Awful'. She should stick to comedy and leave the writing to someone interesting. I only got 3/4 through and hate myself for getting that far.
I tried to stay with it but then, I just went on living my life and don't regret not finishing it at all

A powerful business fable that shows you how to spread Lean business practices to every function of your business. Pascal Dennis is a Lean-business learner and practitioner who has written four books on the subject of Lean business practices. In The Remedy, he shows how Lean business practices can be expanded from manufacturing to all the other areas of your business - including design, engineering, sales, and marketing and all processes in between - and how doing so builds a more efficient organization at every level.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not on Audible. I think the illustrations are important and they are not offered as a supplement to the audiobook like some other books like The First 90 Days".

Has The Remedy turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. Although I'm not interested in the personal backgrounds of the characters or the love interest, or martial arts prowess of the main character, this book offers some good points. Points that are so deep that they may get lost in the unnecessary story.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kent Cassella?

Yes

Could you see The Remedy being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Any additional comments?

Let me first say, I'm not a fan of fiction. From a lean perspective, there are a lot of very strong deep points, which I like. The book has merit to prime the reader to do more research and testing on the subject

  • How to Change Things When Change Is Hard
  • By: Dan Heath, Chip Heath
  • Narrated by: Charles Kahlenberg
  • Length: 7 hrs and 43 mins
  • Unabridged
  • Overall
    4.5 out of 5 stars 4,315

  • Story
    4.5 out of 5 stars 3,058

In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

It's a good book but, about twice the length that it needs to be. I can get past the narrator but the flow of the audiobook is, in my opinion only, not fluid.
It's worth a credit but it's not great.

Greg's style keeps you laughing throughout. He can be crude and over the top but, if you can get past that, he's very funny.
