The stupid music at intervals is really off putting & completely unnecessary! The chap the interrupts with his take in what Jim is saying is equally annoying! However worth the interruptions which are frustrating but can be fast forwarded in order to listen to Jim. Especially like Jim’s exercises that everyone can do. Gives excellent food for thought.

Susan Calman is the least relaxed person she knows. She has no downtime, no hobbies (unless you count dressing up your cats in silly outfits), and her idea of relaxation is to play Assassin's Creed, an hour into which she is in a murderous rage with sky-high blood pressure. Her wife had to threaten to divorce her to make her go on holiday, and she's been told by the same long-suffering wife that unless she finds a way to switch off, and soon, she's going to be unbearable. Susan decided her best bet was to try to immerse herself in the pursuits that her friends find relaxing.

In 1998, three Harvard Business School graduates - two men and one woman - turned down six-figure salaries at big corporations, bet on themselves, and launched their own new companies. By their 10-year reunion, their audacity had paid huge dividends. They'd made many millions of dollars, created hundreds of jobs and left their mark on the world. The Intelligent Entrepreneur tells the compelling and instructive story of how these three young founders did it.

This isn’t stories of rising from nothing. This is stories of the privileged using fair enough their skills but mainly their position to further there ideas. With the access to the right contacts and a bit savy we can all make millions. Have more respect for people that start with nothing.

This book explores the fascinating science of operant conditioning, where science and dog training meet. How Dogs Learn discusses the basic principles of behavior and how they can be used to teach your dog new skills, diagnose problems, and eliminate unwanted behaviors. It's for anyone who wants to better understand the learning process in dogs. Every concept is laid out clearly and precisely, and its relevance to your dog and how you train is explained.

Really need a hardcopy too for referencing. Also down to personal preference but found the reader hard to listen too at times.

Welcome to the life of a junior doctor: 97-hour weeks, life and death decisions, a constant tsunami of bodily fluids, and the hospital parking meter earns more than you. Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay's This is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this diary is everything you wanted to know - and more than a few things you didn't - about life on and off the hospital ward.

Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

Another great book by Brene that you cant help but relate to and it somehow lets you understand yourself that bit better. Only draw back for me was that it wasn't Brene reading. Its just not the same. The reader was clear, well spoken and perfectly understandable but it just doesn't get the message across quite like Brene. Had of I spotted it wasn't Brene reading I would have tried the sample & unlikely would have purchased. With that as said its an excellent book. But would have preferred this one as a hardback rather than read by someone else.

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."

I loved listening to this very inspiring & although the fundementals are repeated it doesnt feel same after same.

Only dislike was the silly music between chapters that comes on for 15-20secs at the end of him talking and at the start of the following chapter. Get rid of this & you've got it perfect for the listener.
