Tony and Elizabeth Jordan have it all - great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But appearances can be deceiving. Their world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness. But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara, a wise, older widow who challenges Elizabeth to start fighting for her family instead of fighting against her husband.

In The First 20 Hours, Josh Kaufman offers a systematic approach to rapid skill acquisition: how to learn any new skill as quickly as possible.

By completing just 20 hours of focused, deliberate practice you'll go from knowing absolutely nothing to performing noticeably well. What do you want to learn?

Would you try another book from Josh Kaufman and/or Josh Kaufman?

I don't know.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I don't know.

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

No

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The First 20 Hours?

All stories telling me how do yoga, programming, playing go, sailing, etc.

Any additional comments?

The author has some great advice for learning but the meat of the advice comes in about the first 45 minutes and the rest is just telling me how to do yoga, program computers, play GO, sailing, etc., stuff I'm not interested in, nor did I want to learn about. I realize the author is trying to use those as examples as to how he learned something but it was ridiculously detailed and certainly took him more than 20 hours. I feel like the rest of the book was decdicated to plugging his wifes Yoga video and his other computer businesses and his "20 hour" website.

It real waste of my time and my money for this book!

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent but warm-hearted 11 year-old girl. Fortunately her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life.

My daughter and I were hooked on this book the entire day. We spent over four hours glued to the each word as we colored posters. I really enjoyed the narrator and appreciated her characterization of each character through the inflections in her tone of voice. I was able to visualize characters more easily because of her intonations. I highly recommend this reading and I'm looking forward to hearing part 2.
