Born Free, first published in 1960 (and immortalised in film by Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers), tells the story of Joy Adamson's relationship with Elsa the lioness, raising her from a young cub and later releasing her into the wild. Here is Adamson's inspiring saga for a new generation of listeners to discover.

If you enjoyed the movie Born Free then you will surely enjoy this audio book. Very well narrated and you find your immersed in the African wilderness as you listen along to it.

Overall the book was really good. It jumped about a bit but I learn't alot about Richard Branson, his life and the kind of person he is. It was great that Branson narrated the book himself. Now looking forward to listening to Finding My Virginity.

In an incredible 25-year career as a homicide detective, Ron Iddles' conviction rate was 99 percent. Yet that only partly explains why Iddles is known to cops and crims alike as 'The Great Man'. Tough, inventive and incorruptible, stoic in the face of senseless horror yet unafraid to shed tears for a victim, Ron has applied his country cunning and city savvy to over 320 homicide cases - some of them the most infamous, compelling and controversial crimes in the nation's history. To the victims of crime, Ron is both a shoulder to cry on and an avenging angel.

Most of us think of sales as convincing potential customers to believe or do something they don't really want to. But that cutthroat mentality makes the process much harder than it has to be—especially in an economic downturn, when customers are more suspicious and defensive. It's far more productive (and satisfying) when salespeople think like Go-Givers and focus exclusively on creating value for the customer.

Would you listen to Go-Givers Sell More again? Why?

Yes, It teaches you not just about sales but also about humanity and how we should interact with our fellow man.

What about Bob Burg and John Mann ’s performance did you like?

Great way of teaching such fundamentals about selling and life itself. Good examples dispersed throughout.

Any additional comments?

Loved it. Waiting for The Go-Giver itself to appear on Audible. From someone who doesn't like sales, this is a great book.

An easy book to listen to and learn from. A game changer! Lots of examples given for each principal taught. It would be useful to have paper and pen availble to write the different principals as they are being taught. I have purchased the update to this book to see what difference, us, living in the the ditial age has on what has been taught in this book.

Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.
