I've listened to this book twice now and will continue to listen again and again. I've cashed in online MTT's in the past but since listening to this book I've actually made 2 final tables online with 1500+ runners which is something I've never done before (all within a month of purchase) And I've no way near managed to engrain all the concepts John talks about in this book. He narrates the book extremely well and I will definitely follow him more closely. A word of warning, the style of poker John teaches in this book isn't the old school Dan Harrington type TAG style. This book makes you a loose aggressive more dominant player. 10/10 all day!!

There are fears that this Christmas could see the start of a double-dip recession, or worse still a double-dip-with-misery-sprinkles and f**k-where’s-my-job?-sauce. Why not chuckle into the howling void as taloned fingers reach up to consume you with Frankie Boyle’s new book, Work! Consume! Die! A no-holds-barred tour de force of comic writing, Work! Consume! Die! is Frankie Boyle at his brutal, taboo-busting best.

This isn't a book filled with mock the week type gag's. Boyle delivers his outlook on the entertainment business, politics, foreign affairs and the economy. The book does digress off to
some hilarious stories and anecdotes some of which make you think if Boyle is clinically sane. Boyle doesn't narrate this audiobook but don't let that put you off as the voice actor nails it!

This book has inspired me to do more with my life than any self help book I've read!

I'm grateful that Arnold has released his memoirs touching on 3 major parts of his career. I only thought Arnold was a bodybuilder turned actor turned politician but this man is a true Inspiration! A leader, shrude business man with ruthless intelligence. This book isn't just a presentation of his life. It contains some priceless insight into this high achievers mindset and tactics he's used for goal achieving and investing.

Do you work for an emotionally intelligent organization? In his phenomenal best seller Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman, Ph.D. mapped the territory where emotional intelligence meets I.Q. - where we apply what we know to how we live. In Working with Emotional Intelligence, Dr. Goleman shows why emotional intelligence has become the new yardstick of success for CEOs and junior hires alike.

This book gave me what I wanted and this is something I will revisit as my career goes on......however, I'm always disappointed when the author doesn't read and when music plays between chapters.
