My husband had to go to 3 different conferences/classes on Executive Leadership. Part of the study work he had to do prior to the actual conferences was to read 3 books. The first book was (and I do love this title)

 

 

 

Death by Meeting: A Leadership Fable...about Solving the Most Painful Problem in Business

Death by Meeting: A Leadership Fable…about Solving the Most Painful Problem in Business by Patrick Lencioni

 

 

 

Now my husband is a smart man. Part of his job is being on the computer for most of the day, and I do believe he duct tapes his phone to his head as it is ringing non stop from 4 or 5 in the morning sometimes all the way to 11 at night. And that doesn’t include all the paperwork. Thankfully he has tremendous work help. Quite frankly when he comes home the last thing he wants to do is read. His eyes are already tired from work. I suggested that he get the audio version of the book. He could listen to the book, write notes when he needed to but this way he didn’t have to read. It worked like a charm. He aced his first conference/class, he was only 1 of a few that actually finished the book.

 

 

 

The next book of the three he had to read was

 

 

 

Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...And Others Don't

Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap   by Jim Collins

He went straight to audiobook for it. It worked just as well as the first book and again he did well in his conference/class. There was a third audiobook that he had bought for the conference/classes but he has lent it out and I am not sure of its name.
Since he had actually enjoyed the audiobooks, I decided to give one when I took a little road trip to Victoria. I chose as my first audiobook.
I am so happy to have discovered the joys of audiobooks! There are so many to choose from. Handy to have when you want to leave your hands free. And the storytelling reminds me of some of the happiest times I remember from a child. I would go to our public library, all of the kids there would sit on the floor, in  a circle for reading time. Our librarian was an amazing storyteller. She brought to life the books she read to us.
I would really recommend that you try out at least one audiobook. I’m sure glad I did!
