Just as the title states, this is a guide for life on Earth. Chris Hadfield is an extraordinary person - my favourite fellow Canadian too - and he describes what it really means to have a dream and work for it, but most important, how to be resilient and bounce back from failed trials. His journey is inspiring and his motto of "always be ready" is a guideline for all of us, especially to teach our kids. It is a must read and a book to read again over time to remind us that with hard work, determination and preparation, we can achieve what we want and dream of. #Audible1

If trainers want to truly make an impact on organizations, what they need is a new mindset, not a new technique. Drawing on examples from major companies and their own years of experience, the authors inspire trainers to have the courage to break away from the usual ways of doing things and identify what is really needed and what really works.

I am in Sales Enablement and this book really was an eye opener to how we deal with stakeholders, make training a priority and understand the areas of performance that we control and the ones we cannot. Great read for any training professional trying to create an organized practice and create accountability with their stakeholders.#Audible1

Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

I am a fan fo Dan Brown but mostly, I love his main character Robert Langdon. As all of Dan's stories, where you never know if there is fact, fiction, conspiracy or tales, but you get immersed into it and live all the excitement with the narrative.Also, the narrator is amazing! love that this and also Origins are narrated by him, he does an amazing job with the voices. #Audible1
