Mark Cuban (Owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Star of the new TV show "The Benefactor") has a new PDF posted on Change This in which he attributes much of his success to the following:
I continually searched for new ideas. I read every book and magazine I could. Heck, three bucks for a magazine, twenty bucks for a book. One good idea that led to a customer or a solution, and it paid for itself many times over. (Read the rest here)
The same is certainly true for audio material. One good idea could pay for any material your purchase many times over. So while $20, $30 or even $100 could seem pricey for an audio learning title, it might actually be more expensive for you not to buy it...

If you missed the first U.S. Presidential Debate, you can now download it at Audible.com. The audio certainly doesn't capture everything (I thought some of the "non-verbal" stuff that was going on the during the debate was pretty interesting) but it does allow you to focus on what the candidates are actually saying. I hope Audible does this for all of the debates. Here's the link to the download (FYI, it says Audible members only but I'm not sure if they are referring only to their paying members or to non-paying members as well):

I just received my copy of "My Life", the unabridged autobiography of Bill Clinton. Good stuff so far... Bill only reads the prologue but the reader (Michael Beck) does an excellent job and even sounds a bit like the former President. It'll probably take me a long time to plug through this one but I'm definitely looking forward to posting a review when I finish.
