Grover Gardner, An Established Narrator in the Self-Development Genre

Grover Gardner has been performing narration on audiobooks since 1981 and has recorded over 650 audiobooks. His prolific career has won him many awards and national recognition for his work. Gardner's subtle voice is a model of balance and control. He brings the books he narrates to life in a vibrant and vivid manor which adds to the experience of listening to the text in a unique way. Gardner has narrated a number of books in the self-development genre. These fascinating digital audiobooks are available for download at Audible.com.

The Law of Success is one of the original self-development books. In this classic text, published in 1928, Napoleon Hill presents fifteen laws which he derives from a study of the life-work of successful people. The reader is encouraged to follow these laws as a pathway to personal success. Grover Gardner gives this classic a fresh new life with his baritone voice.

In the Alchemy of Finance, investment wizard George Soros walks the reader through his decision making process and investment strategies. Grover Gardner's narration highlights Soros' analysis of investing as a kind of alchemy and gives a purposeful voice to Soros' genius. This book is a must-listen for anyone who wants to develop a deeper knowledge of the world of finance.

Grover Gardner also narrates the classic investment advice of Jeremy Siegel's, Stocks for the Long Run. Siegel makes a case for a conservative investment strategy, arguing that the stock market is the best long term investment and has averaged a 7% return per year for nearly 200 years.

A huge aspect of success in the business world is based on giving effective presentations and making good first impressions. In another self-development title, Talk Your Way to the Top , Kevin Daley and Laura Daley-Caravella teach readers how to communicate effectively in order to achieve success. The chapters guide the listener through a wide variety of speaking experiences and provide coaching on how to succeed in these areas.

Author Dale Carnegie's Works Available on Audible.com

standanddeliver.jpg

Dale Carnegie's story is an inspiring rags to riches tale. Born in 1888, in rural Missouri, Carnegie goes to New York to try to make it as an actor. He does not succeed and winds up broke and living at the YMCA. He offers to teach public speaking to the other men and hits upon a successful method. In just a few years, he develops a training course called the Dale Carnegie Course, which is immensely successful. Today, Carnegie's work is still the model for people interested in self-development and leadership training.

Carnegie's book How to Win Friends and Influence People is a classic guide to living a successful life. This book teaches how to respect others, listen to them and address their needs. Carnegie avoids manipulation and a self-centered focus. Instead, he teaches how authentic care and concern for others will lead to success. This classic text is on Audible.com's self-development bestseller list. Many people over the past 60 years have found in this book helpful guidance in achieving their goals and in helping others to do the same.

A second popular book by Dale Carnegie is How to Stop Worrying and Start Living. Carnegie realized that most people waste much of their time and energy worrying. Concluding that this is not the path to a fulfilling life, he put together some practical advice to help people avoid worry. Carnegie suggests that we focus on what we can do in the present to address our problems and avoid too much speculation about the future. Available for download at Audible.com, Carnegie's advice will help you to cultivate peace in your life.

Carnegie could not have predicted the new directions that human relationships would take in a digital age. But the same principles he made famous still apply in the new media. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of How to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie and Associates, Inc. have updated the classic original to reflect the new digital ways in which humans communicate. How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age shows us that while the tools that we use to communicate might change, the principles of human relationships do not. This audiobook shows how to apply those principles to today's communication technology.

Stand and Deliver, by the Dale Carnegie Organization, presents the meat and bones of public speaking. This audiobook is filled with strategies, tips and secrets to develop top-notch communication skills. It covers all aspects of public speaking from developing an authentic speaking persona to persuading people to act on your words. This audiobook is essential for improving your public speaking skills.
