Emmy Award-winning actress Tatiana Maslany narrates a brand-new special edition recording of the first audiobook in the worldwide best-selling trilogy from Suzanne Collins! In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

Chris Bailey turned down lucrative job offers to pursue a lifelong dream - to spend a year performing a deep dive experiment into the pursuit of productivity, a subject he had been enamored with since he was a teenager. After obtaining his business degree, he created a blog to chronicle a year-long series of productivity experiments he conducted on himself, where he also continued his research and interviews with some of the world's foremost experts, from Charles Duhigg to David Allen.

I've read/listened to a ton of books on productivity, habit building, and willpower....and this is the best one on Audible. I bookmarked several snip its from the book that I liked and learned from, and I'll give those a listen from time to time to remind myself how to stay on track. All great advice, and narrated very well. I highly recommend.

We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.

I did not expect to binge listen to this book the way I did... finishing it in just a couple days. The narrator was perfect for this book... and the information laced with stories really held my interest.

Unexpectedly, I now realize that a person from my past is likely a sociopath. I don't know why this makes me feel better about the situation, but it does.

Admittedly, I bought this for palace intrigue, but it gave so much more! This tell all book serves as a history lesson, a civics guide, a fascinating biography, and an inspiring leadership book, all wrapped into one; and it was impossible to put down.

The audio performance was perfect. I am so impressed by the life experiences and lessons that Mr. Comey was able to share. Thank You.

With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country—and the world—has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief.

Audio performance was VERY well done. No surprises in the book, just confirmation of what you already assumed, with some tasty morsels of behind the scenes gossip and drama at the White House circus.

I enjoyed the book, but don't want a sequel ;)
