I just finished listening to this audio book. I was looking for something to help improve my presentation skills on the radio.
Not knowing too much about Charlamagne I was in shock how extremely simular a perspective and posible deep down introspective views are in line. Now I would like to link with the brother .

This is a biography of James Baldwin, author, one-time preacher, and civil rights activist. He chose David Leeming, a close friend and colleague, to write his biography and granted him access to his correspondence. Leeming traces his life from his birth in Harlem in 1924 to his self-imposed exile in Europe, his later years as political activist, and his public funeral in 1987.

In You Were Born Rich, Bob Proctor has done it again, this time taking you step by step to the surprising discovery that success is not always reaching out for something that you don't have but rather only reaching over and rearranging the pieces already there. The great value of this audiobook is that you can instantly apply the conclusions to your own life. It will begin to impact you long before you reach the last chapter.

In Oakland, California, in 1966, community college students Bobby Seale and Huey Newton armed themselves, began patrolling the police, and promised to prevent police brutality. Unlike the Civil Rights Movement that called for full citizenship rights for blacks within the US, the Black Panther Party rejected the legitimacy of the US government and positioned itself as part of a global struggle against American imperialism.

When most people think of Michael Jordan, they think of the beautiful shots, his body totally in sync with the ball, hitting nothing but net. He is responsible for incredible moments so ingrained in basketball history that they have their own names: The Shrug, The Shot, The Flu Game. But for all his greatness, there's also a dark side to Jordan: a ruthless competitor, a gambler. There's never been a biography that balanced these personas-until now.

A great introduction to self maintenance from a Asia perspective. I have tried a few of the recommendations and found they suit me in preference to my life style and fitness level.
I felt I had to learn more and yet at the same time I had enough to get started.

All of us have what it takes to make it in today's competitive and changing world. You may have doubted your ability to get the job done in the past, but something else may have been getting in the way of your success. The key to ultimate achievement has very little to do with your education or skill level. The secret to accomplishing great things is simple: Find and pursue the kind of work you are meant to do - your "purpose."

No matter where you are in life, there come a time when you need that reset and let's go. Less Brown has been an inspiration to a person who has constantly inspired him to be consistent and persistent with his journey in Broadcasting.
It was just a short mention of some material he listened to that sparked my interest in Les .
Now My Journey begins and let's see where we can go.

first I will say, I have no real interest in football. my admiration is more for the athletes and infustructure.
I saw the book in a store and probably the first book involving the football sport was not the football but managing one of the more successful teams that I know of.
only knowing Alex as person who has many legacys of players and fans . I was interested to get to know this man.

thank you Alex

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Most definitely. The Journey through the sermons of this Iconic Leader has to be experienced by all who is on the road to repatriation.In hearing the testimonials of the people who had personal contact with Martin, i felt the warmth of a real man touching the souls of the world..

What was one of the most memorable moments of Martin Luther King?

The letter he received while recovering in Hospital from the young girl. The thought that a child could see the truth.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The thought of being in the audience and listening to a man who has verbalizing a way of freedom and peace. A truly powerful feat indeed.
The fact that he was only 39 years old.will stay with me for life time.

Any additional comments?

These works should really inspire any listener to speak out about life .
