I have on occasion but they are not widely sold down here. I did use a Mepp's spinner at the Canyon Lake tailrace when I lived down there with some good results.

The book "Talking to Strangers"

Every once in a while there is one of those books that is so much better listened to then it is from reading. This is one of those books. I recommend it highly.

I'll check it out.

I read one non fiction and listen to one every month.

Goggins book was 100% better on Audible. 100%

Many just are better read.

I re read Atomic Habits this month and re listened to David Goggins book this month. Next month Power of Habit in paper and need an audible

I just re read Blood Meridian for the 4th time in 10 years. It's great audible or written....

Most brutal book ever- but incredible writing

Mere Christinanity is another I can think of that's hands down a better listen. "Demand" is another youd like to listen to. It's right up your alley and talks about what changes a product from merely important, into something that is demanded.

The "Talking to Strangers" has a lot of what we were discussing today. Talks about how you cant really understand someone unless they invite you to. Some shocking statistics in it. Things like people cant tell if someone is lying 46% of the time and it doesnt matter their profession. It just discusses how we can find ways to see common ground better with individuals. Great book, sounds all gushy the way I'm explaining it but it's not. Its one of those books that makes you think and is produced magnificently.

Sounds like "Empire of the Summer Moon."

The Road is the post apocalyptic one right? I never actually read it and I'm blanking on the story right now. It's about going across the country after the world goes to **** right? Cannabalism and stuff like that?

I finally got audible because I didn't have the time to read all the books I wanted. So I'm doing the same as read one, listen to one every month. Currently reading "Liar's Poker" and listening to "All the Devils are Here." I found with the audiobooks that listening for an hour or so then switching back to podcasts works better for absorbing the info vs trying to take it in large blocks and sort of just tuning out.

I heard Goggins' book was better on audible because he added commentary to it while reading. I was also listening to a podcast with a guy I like, Kmele Foster, and he was saying he actually listens to the audiobook while reading the actual book which is something I had wondered about doing too. Seems like it may be a good way to really retain info
