Top Ten Audio Books


Being the audio book connoisseur that I am, I have to tell you about my top ten audio books.  Admittedly, there are a ton of different lists for the “top ten audio books”, but my list includes my favorites.  These ten stellar books have either been best sellers over several years, or newer best sellers from the past several months.  If you are interested in purchasing audio books, these top ten audio books are an excellent place to start.

Each of these top ten audio books has something special to offer.  Several are a bit controversial, like Rhonda Byrne’s runaway “law of attraction” hit, The Secret, and Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth.  But controversial or not, I have thoroughly enjoyed each one.  I will list them all but will review my personal three favorites on my top ten audio books list.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking – Malcolm Gladwell

I put Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking at the top of my top ten audio books list because this is a truly phenomenal book that has really influenced how I live my life.  Gladwell focuses on how we can get so caught up in over thinking or overanalyzing things that we often end up getting in our own way.  This hit home with me because by nature I am terribly analytical and can end up paralyzed with indecision as a result.  This book has really helped me challenge the way I think.  It also has some powerful tips on reading people, which I have found very useful.  I can’t recommend Blink enough.  It ranks number one on my list of top ten audio books!

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen R. Covey

This book has been a best seller for well over a decade now.  It is number two on my top ten audio books list because it has been another great influence in my life both personally and professionally.  I’ve always known that our habits play a significant role in our lives, and to develop good ones can be life changing.  I especially like how he approaches things from a “win-win” viewpoint.  This book has been particularly beneficial for me in terms of my career success.  It has also helped me be a better husband and father.  It should be on every one’s top ten audio books list!

The 4 Hour Work Week -Tim Ferris

Number three on my list of top ten audio books is this great book by Tim Ferris.  I admit I haven’t quite succeeded in paring down my work week to only 4 hours, but after listening to this audio book I have definitely made some changes that have really helped me prioritize my time better.  This has helped me have more free time to do the things I love.  Ferris really opened my eyes to how easy it is to waste time. 

I especially liked his emphasis on outsourcing those uninteresting or mundane tasks whenever possible so we can focus on the more important things.  My wife especially loved it when, after reading this book, I suggested we hire someone to come in and clean our house once a week.  While that may sound like a silly luxury to some, considering how busy we both are it has allowed us to have more time for each other (we actually go on a date every week now) as well as more family time also.  I highly recommend this book to add to your top ten audio books list!
