  • "At last a book on Jobs that doesn't..."

    Overall

    Firstly I do have to start with a word of caution. Dan continually references the bible throughout this book and offers a strong Christian perspective. I would urge the listener not to be put off by this as the principals he discusses are in any event great principals, whatever your religious persuasion or otherwise. For the most part this is fine although once or twice it does border a bit on a sermon (complete with a bit of a dig at Tom Cruise/ Nicole Kidman!) . The book is also largely written from an American perspective. OK, so now the reasons as to why this warrants 5 stars. 1/ Dan reads very well, he has a very soothing, down-to-earth and yet also very passionate voice- he's a joy to listen to. 2/ Not many people have written about this subject and yet it is a very important subject that affects everyone on the globe to some capacity 3/ Dan turned his life around and is open and honest about what happened and what he gained from this experience 4/ there is a lot of sage advice here based on experience.

    In 2009, the U.S. unemployment rate approached ten percent. Today, when new work is found, it may not be traditional. Studies estimate half of the American workforce will soon consist of freelancers, consultants, independent contractors, entreprenuers, "electronic immigrants," and so forth. Are you ready for the new normal? Dan Miller has seen it coming for years.

  • "Great Overviews"

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. It's always going to cause a bit of division when one does the whole 'top 50 thing'. Where is Jim Rohn? Where is Jack Canfield?....I could go on and on as to the obvious omissions here. Nevertheless the 50 chosen are a great introduction to the books (some old favorites and new ones here!) - and more importantly the people and lives behind them- that can and do change lives for the better. It's true that this is very general and at times some of the obvious messages in the books are omitted. Nevertheless, there is enough to give the listener of good gist of the key ideas/ concepts. My only other gripe is that whilst very clearly read, the reader does sound a bit like a used-car salesman which can (falsely) seem to limit the authenticity.

  • "Bit too long otherwise fab!"

    Overall

    Don't really know why I got this...in the words of the book's mantra 'sometimes you just do things'. On the one hand this book is extremely ego-driven and some may find this too much. On the other hand, this book managed to keep me completely rivetted for the duration. If ever you need to understand what 'endurance' means then look no further, this book totally defines the word. The reading is exceptional...and to be honest I was just a tad upset when I later found out that it wasn't Scott himself. I'm not a runner and I'm not a vegan....having listened to this I feel compelled to at least seriously consider both. Intelligent, inspiring and honest...although just that little bit too long.

Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    There's nothing more exciting than free money, and in the following audio, you're going to learn how to get all the free money you'll ever need! The U.S. government alone gives out over $300 billion dollars in free money and services every single year to American taxpayers. In addition, there are billions extra given away by private businesses and foundations. Any of this money could be rightfully yours; you just need to know where to find it and how to get it!
