A bit of irony. Or maybe a joke I couldn’t get to.
What’s going on with Chapter 10?
The audio skips and skips; making it impossible to follow along.
The first 9 chapters were great.
The constant skipping in the 10th ruined the performance;(
It’s not like I was jogging with my Walkman.
I hope this error can be corrected for future downloads.
Best of luck!

It is powerful to pair clutter with death.

It felt like Juliet and I were sitting down for tea discussing Margareta's book.
Not all of the conversation was relevant to my experiences. Regardless though, I am much wiser to have listened and shared.

If you're a fan of short stories, then you'll love Tom's writing.

What a delight!

After committing to several hours of Tom's readings, I felt rewarded when a few old characters from the first story returned.

Looking forward to more. Both Tom and Mr. Martin bring so much visual humor to their writing.

Thank you,
and thank you.

Amazing!

Poignant commentary on pop culture including tech and pop science sleep culture.
If Ms. Huffington were not editor/producer of this concept...her writing/performance of the parody, probably wouldn't have gotten this far.
Still good for a few chuckles.

Tim wrote a great book that put me at ease about messiness.
Tim references several pop culture reference making it easy to relate stories I knew to his argument.
Nick 'the nice' Guy Smith narrates perfectly making X1 speed a comfortable pace.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who has ever pooh-poohed another's messy workspace.

Ever wonder why you have so little attention for the important things in life?

Your attention is being sold; it's been sold incrementally over the years.

Marc Cashman beautifully narrates fifteen hours of a 'brief' history of tactics and trends in advertising.

This is great book for you if you're interested in gaining control of your attention, find out where it's gone, who has taken it, and how they stole it from you. The why is money, but not for as much as you would think.

I absolutely love the storytelling and narration.

I was totally surprised by chapter 25 where Tim Ferriss(two rs two esses) interrupts Josh's well read ending to call me sexy. I had already heard Tim's podcast. I didn't want to hear it again unexpectedly...and so soon. It's two distinctly separate audio with quality and speed and voice.

Still, well worth the read.

I meant to read The Alchemist 20 years ago while traveling overseas.
I am glad that I finally read it.
It was well worth the wait.
