Thoughts, & review on Super Sales on Super Heroes – book 3 Narrated by: Nick Podehl Series: Super Sales on Super Heroes, Book 3 Length: 12 hrs Release date: 01-29-19 Click to listen to a sample.  I actually don’t know what’s going on, I feel like I’ve missed a book on magic or something….

Book 1 was pretty good at least, so it’s...

Books listened to thus far in 2019

So, it takes a while to write a review, so even though there’s only a couple of reviews thus far in 2019, that’s not all the books I’ve listened to. In fact, much of the time, I feel like writing a review is a bit of a chore. But I do it, because my memory isn’t that great, and I want to be able to recommend to my friends or family whether or not they should listen to the book, if they would like it…or what are the salient points made so that I can refer to it later. This year, (at the time of writing) it looks like I’ve only listened to 4 books. Just because of the reviews, or at least when the reviews were published… but in fact I’ve listened to a lot more. Here’s a total list of books I’ve listened to thus far (with covers & a brief description), + some that I’ve started but are either still on-going, or just haven’t finished and what’s the reasons for that: Bubba the monster hunter series Book 1 – 10hrs 16min Book 2 – 12 hrs 55mins Book 3 – 14hrs 43mins Book 3.1 3hrs 31 mins Book 3.2 3 hrs 36mins Bubba the monster hunter series is basically a light hearted collection of stories about a tough, but good hearted red neck that goes around...

The change to Final Cut Pro X

Here’s the big points I want to point out…  the rest is the why and the how & current updates… Big changes I’ve noticed as compared to Premiere Pro (Initial thoughts) This software is already so much better than Premiere pro So much faster Much more optimised for Mac Much more intuitive once you do a basic tutorial and so much faster. Rendering is super quick too & is generally a pleasure to work on.  It saves & renders in the background.  – the saving in the background is difficult for me, because I’ve become accustomed to saving myself...

Lying by Sam Harris

Thoughts, notes, review on Lying by Sam Harris Narrated by: Sam Harris Length: 1 hr and 15 mins Release date: 11-19-13 Intro Got a recommendation for Sam Harris from a friend, and someone else told me they listen to his podcast called ‘waking up with Sam Harris’ , so as this was a smallish book, and I didn’t want to take the time to take notes on another book I’m currently listening to, I went for this. What’s it about? It is… exactly what you think it’s about given the title. Its only 1 hr 15 mins long, however in...

Review, thoughts & notes on The Operator -Firing shots that killed Osama Bin Laden Secondary title: Firing the Shots That Killed Osama Bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior Narrated by: Robert O’Neill Length: 9 hrs and 42 mins Release date: 04-25-17 In a Nutshell I got recommended this book by my brother, he listened to it some time ago and said it was a really interesting book. Normally, to be honest, I wouldn’t be interested in a book like this. Especially from the title sub-line: ‘The firing shots that killed bin laden’. I couldn’t really care...
