Millionaire Success Habits is a book designed with one purpose in mind, and that is to take you from where you are in life to where you want to be in life by using easy to implement "success habits" into your daily routine. This book is not about adding more time to your day. It is about replacing those things that are not serving your future with success habits designs specifically to assist you on your journey to that better you.

Good content but holy cow - the worst narration I have heard and I have heard in the past 60+ Audible books in the past 18-24 months.

Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

Excellent narration and fabulous story. I had this book on my shelf for years and never read it, but J. Irons' narration was worth the wait.

How can we benefit from the promise of government while avoiding the threat it poses to individual freedom? In this classic book, Milton Friedman provides the definitive statement of his immensely influential economic philosophy - one in which competitive capitalism serves as both a device for achieving economic freedom and a necessary condition for political freedom.

Great topic and great book for econ lovers and students, but the narration crushed my desire to keep listening. I did, because I thoroughly enjoy Friedman's ideas, but just a terrible listen.

  • Raising Men

  • Lessons Navy SEALs Learned from Their Training and Taught to Their Sons

After Eric Davis spent over 16 years in the military, including a decade in the SEAL teams, his family was more than used to his absence on deployments and secret missions that could obscure his whereabouts for months at a time. Without a father figure in his own life since the age of 15, Eric was desperate to maintain the bonds he'd fought so hard to forge when his children were young - particularly with his son, Jason, because he knew how difficult it was to face the challenge of becoming a man on one's own.

What did you love best about Raising Men?

Refreshing to hear like minded dads saying 'get off your ass', 'stretch your limits' and 'pursue purpose, not comfort'.

What other book might you compare Raising Men to and why?

Your Son is Counting on You, but Raising Men is better. Dads are important...very important in their kids lives and it's not said enough.

What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?

All of it, honestly. This is the best narration I have listened to, covering 30 or so books.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed a lot - mostly around trying to verify if the balls were intact.

Any additional comments?

Awesome. Great book to listen to.

Thomas Paine published Common Sense in 1776, a time when America was a hotbed of revolution. The pamphlet, which called for America's political freedom, sold more than 150,000 copies in three months. Paine not only spurred his fellow Americans to action but soon came to symbolize the spirit of the Revolution itself. His persuasive pieces, written so elegantly, spoke to the hearts and minds of all those fighting for freedom from England.

Let's be honest here - if you're from a particular side of the political spectrum, you will not like this book. However, hearing freedom and liberty championed by Mr. Paine's writing, warms the soul and is timeless.

New research has revealed that myelin, once considered an inert form of insulation for brain cells, may be the holy grail of acquiring skill. Journalist Daniel Coyle spent years investigating talent hotbeds, interviewing world-class practitioners (top soccer players, violinists, fighter, pilots, artists, and bank robbers) and neuroscientists. In clear, accessible language, he presents a solid strategy for skill acquisition.

To understand how the brain works a little more is extremely helpful, especially with younger kids still studying, trying new things and learning skills. This book and most of the details presented were enciteful enough that I want my kids to listen to at least the first couple hours of the book to hear how the brain functions when they attempt to get better at a task. Towards the end it gets a little long with examples and more stories of deep practice, so it could have been edited to be a shorter and the concept wouldn't have been lost to the reader/listener. I wish I could have read this book when I was younger.

I read some of the 1 & 2 star ratings, which I always do before a purchase to see if their critiques has merit. For this book, my opinion is that the few I read do not. The 1 and 2 star reviews may have thought this was a medical book, which it clearly isn't and their reviews come across as pompous. Judge for yourself, but I enjoyed the topic. Great book.
