The Legend Lives On - All hail the "Queen" of Rock

Freddie was a genius who was so far ahead of his time and I absolutely loved this book. Such a great listen, very well produced. Feels just like a bunch of great interviews mixed in by a narrator. So good! Not just about Freddie too though, this book takes the listener down Rock and Roll history Lane.... Loved hearing about so many other artists I like, and their connetion with the band, such as: Elton John, Boontown Rats, David Bowe, Michael Jackson, The Darkness, Spandau Ballet, Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Hendrix and so many others! Absolutely brilliant. A must have for all who love Freddie and Queen.

For a great cause....

Silly fun book that pokes fun at certain stereotypes, which could make certain politicians upset but even still - this a must for all who love John Oliver!

Was a fun listen, especially with my wife....

Too good to be true and yet it was... If it wasn't true, it'd be comical. Crazy to think someone thought they could actually get away with this. Book is also well produced and has a great narrator too.

Not bad

Channels is great for its short content. I mean how bad could something be if it's just a few minutes? In this case, it's the exact opposite, and I wish it was a little longer. The narration is excellent and the overall story line is a solid one, especially considering it's based on a true story!

Too funny!

I absolutely loved the cartoon and this listen is just as great, minus the "squiggle vision"

My new excuse for not making it to the NHL!

I found this book to be super interesting. Some of the facts and data are outstanding and really hit home for me.

Right from the start, the first chapter on hockey is excellent. Makes so much sense too. Amazes me how we could have such a broken process and yet not even think about it or talk about fixing it so that it's fair and equal to all regardless of when they were born.

The chapter pertaining to "culture" was also extremely intriguing.

Well written and the author does a great job using facts and research to prove his points. Even better, the narrator is terrific and does a fine job keeping the material interesting to the very end.

Insightful

Overall, I thought this was a very insightful title as it showed me new and different ways to look at things, especially when the chips are down. Also I found the length of the book perfect as I was able to listen to it several times to really drive home some of the key points. The narrator was really good too. A must listen for all.

Can't wait to put into practice

Learned soooo much from this title and I can't wait to begin to put this into practice to see if it really works. Great book on "working together" and it should be fun coming up with creative ways to show my workers about the importance of their work, autonomy and cheering others on!

A Cheesy Tale

Who Moved My Cheese is a cute tale about change itself and how those who resist change can get left behind while those who embrace change can blossom and in fact, those who embrace change may even become better for it. In a specific example covered in the book, they were so worried about change that they didn’t even realize that the change could lead more cheese and in some cases, better cheese altogether. To put this in our own terms – while change is fearsome because of the unknown, one also needs to realize that the “unknown” doesn’t necessarily mean bad or worse and in the book we see that in this case - change happens and it’s a good thing for all.

While this is just a fun tale, the analogy is one we can all learn from and relate to. In all walks of life and in whatever we do in life, humans will face change and how they deal with that change will affect them for better and/or for worse depending on the person. That said – move with the cheese and if you are able to embrace change you can become a better person from it.
