Brené Brown has spent the past two decades studying the emotions and experiences that give meaning to our lives, and the past seven years working with transformative leaders and teams spanning the globe. She found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies all ask the same question: How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture? This audiobook answers this question.

I absolutely LOVE Brene Brown. There are so many good points in here which have been such a huge help to my husband AND myself in both of our work lives, and personal relationships. Brene does a wonderful job reading this - the book comes across as though she is having a conversation with you in the same room. I only wish I could write notes fast enough because the material in here is so good that I don't want to be able to forget it.

Two girls, born thousands of miles apart in Kazakhstan and Japan just after World War II, meet and are like peas in a pod. They also get on like sisters and keep n touch for the rest of their lives. However, one wants to help her battle-scarred country and the other wants to leave hers for the West. They dream up a daring, dangerous plan to achieve both goals, which Andropov, the chief of the Soviet KGB, is told about. He dubs it "Operation Youriko", and it is set in motion, but does it have even the remotest chance of success?

When it started I found it a little slow, but truly this was an amazing listen! More incredible is the knowledge at the end that the story is true. Definitely not what I expected, and outside of my normal choice of literature, but I am so glad to have heard it. The reader is fantastic, from his articulation to his voices, and everything inbetween. I hope more books like this one come out soon. I will definitely watch for both Owen Jones and James Hill. If Yoriko is still alive, I hope she hears this story too.

Born the bastard son of a Welsh princess, Myrdden Emrys - or as he would later be known, Merlin - leads a perilous childhood, haunted by portents and visions. But destiny has great plans for this no-man's-son, taking him from prophesying before High King Vortigern to the crowning of Uther Pendragon, and the conception of Arthur, king for once and always.

Derek Perkins reads so very well, and I really enjoyed how in depth the story was. I have never heard a story like this taken from the point when Merlin was a child. Very refreshing narration for this genre. I will definitely be looking for more books written and/or read by these two people.

Chaos and confusion mount to a crescendo in a wild and fast-paced comedy of mistaken identity, one of Shakespeare's earliest plays. Young Antipholus of Syracuse is searching the world for his identical twin brother, separated from him at birth. With him is his servant Dromio, who lost his twin brother at the same time. The pair arrive in Ephesus where, unbeknownst to them, their twins are living.

Comedy of Errors gas long been my favourite
Shakespeare (since I was four!). These readers definitely do Shakespeare justice! Their speech makes even the sometimes convoluted and more confusing scenes clear to the reader. Loved it on the first read, and I am sure I am sure it will not be the last.

They did a wonderful job producing, and reading these stories. Just lie back, close your eyes, and let your imagination join in! The inflections and expressions used for the 10th doctors voice were spot on by all readers making it very easy to imagine every picture and every movement. It was wonderful to get to hear more stories of the tenth doctor too as he is by far the best. Several of the stories in here I would love to see added to the movie series one day, others I think would be far too scary! Whether you enjoy reading or listening, or even if you are just a doctor who fan or just a fan of David Tennant himself, these are definitely a must!
