Dare to Lead

“I LOVE this book. I learned so much during my first listen via Libro.fm that I am going to read it again (this time in hardcover, with colleagues reading alongside so we can discuss). It's super-motivating and inspiring, but totally research-based. I feel that leaders at every type of organization would benefit from reading this. (Also: I got to interview Brené Brown about vulnerability and leadership in Feb. 2021 and it was a career/life highlight!) ”

Ready Player One

By Ernest Cline
Narrated by: Wil Wheaton
Length: 15 hours 39 minutes

Ready Player One

“When it comes to listening to an audio book, I have to be drawn to the narrator’s voice almost if not more than the actual story. The way a narrator speaks really makes or breaks a story for me. Wil Wheaton made this story for me! He brought new life to a story I was already in love with. Wheaton made Wade Watts come to life, and was able to bring out the obsessiveness in Wade’s voice when it came to Halliday and 80’s pop-culture. Wheaton is the only person that could ever be Wade Watts for me. This is one audio book that I know I will go back to again and again.”

“Wow! Here is a collection of stories that are at times funny, often moving, and really, really good, if not great. 'Welcome to Mars' is perhaps my favorite.

And then there's 'Alan Bean Plus Four,' which is a hilarious telling of four friends' journey to the moon. Read it. You'll be pleasantly surprised by Tom Hanks' writing.”
