    "Useful Information"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Embrace the Resistance to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I don't have time to read the print version, so the audio version helped!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Much wisdom that has been lost and would add a lot of value to a generation whose values have tanked to an all time low in our country.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It's almost 1 hours long so it took me about 2 days to finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    Like any other motivational book, listening it is not enough. One has to actually do what the book suggests. King's own life story is a great motivation.

    This book compels one to actually "do" something after they listen. This is a must have for everyone wanting achieve their goals!

    "Simple guide yet effective!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Embrace the Resistance to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    Which character – as performed by David Winograd – was your favorite?

    Clear, good pacing, did a nice job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did...several times now.


    Any additional comments?

    Much wisdom that has been lost and would add a lot of value to a generation whose values have tanked to an all time low in our country. These are things that can absolutely save your influence, or save your relationships. Things that are very easy to do, and just as easy not to do, but can change the course of your life/career.

    Yes audio version is too good.
