Three listeners rave about their favorite self-help audiobooks, and why you’ll be raving too.
Book: The Code of the Extraordinary Mind, by Vishen Lakhiani
Narrator: Vishen Lakhiani
Reviewer: Mohamed A.
“I loooooooved this book!! Vishen Lakhiani is an amazing author and speaker (I listened to the audiobook) and I was inspired and engaged throughout the entire book. One of the best self growth books I’ve ever read.
The book is about questioning the cultural and environmental rules that has been passing for years from a generation to generation and we tend to follow a lot of them without questioning them just because. This book goes deep into some of these “brules” and makes you process them on a personal level and re-evaluate them. It goes on into many topics such as gratitude, forgiveness, meditation, spirituality, religion, and so many similar deep philosophical topics. And it’s the kind of book that you finish and start all over again. It has so many exercises and practices that can live with you for the rest of your life.
I’d strongly recommend this book to everyone and any one.”
Book: Never Split the Difference, by Chris Voss with Tahl Raz
Narrator: Michael Kramer
Reviewer: Justin A.
“This is one of the best books on business, negotiations, emotional intelligence, and productive dialogue that I’ve ever read/listened to. What’s so encouraging, is that the principles were born, tested, refined & proven in real life situations, by real, working professional people. (As opposed to an academic theory born in a classroom.) There is lots of practical advice on what drives peoples behaviors, and how to get inside their decision making progress to achieve a positive outcome. It’s full of several real-world examples, some gut-wrenching, and some downright hilarious.
Not only is the content excellent, but the book is written & arranged very well. I generally prefer to hear the writer narrate the book, but in this case the narrator is PERFECT for this book. (Especially for the late night, FM D.J. voice.)
Not only is the content great, but the book is wonderfully entertaining as well. It is very easy to listen to multiple times over, and will be one of the best business books for quite a long time. I can’t recommend this book enough.”
Book: You Are a Badass, by Jen Sincero
Narrator: Jen Sincero
Reviewer: Tamara P.
“A game changer. Life changer. I’m one to stay in a comfortable routine. 30 years young and working for the same company over 10 years. Different roles, different states, all of which I excelled in growth-wise but never financially comfortable not to mention not a single one of these roles fulfilled a true sense of purpose in my life which is otherwise fucking awesome.
Maybe 2-3 chapters into listening to this book, I made the decision to walk my ass with a less than mediocre career into a business that I’ve wanted to work for since in the womb and didn’t blink to realize that I’m not necessarily even qualified for this career but planned to win then over with my charm and good looks. I did it. Miss live in doubt and take no risk…I introduced myself, dropped off my resume aaaaaand I start next month. Many thanks to Jen Sincero and this badass book.”
