The Best Audiobooks: Excerpts from Great Nonfiction and Fiction Books
About This Show
Welcome to The Best Audiobooks podcast, where I narrate passages from my favorite nonfiction books (with a few novels and essays too)!
There will be at least two new books every week. Nonfiction writers will include Malcolm Gladwell, James Collins, Stephen Covey, Jared Diamond, and Don Miguel Ruiz. Fiction writers will include John Steinbeck, Gabriel Garcia Marques, Frank Herbert, Hermann Hesse, and Haruki Murakami.
This podcast is for you if...
1. You enjoy audiobooks and Kindle ebooks
2. But you don't want to pay $20-30 per book on Audible
3. And you like to sample and listen to many different audiobooks
4. And you're busy
The readings are short, entertaining, useful 5-minute sections that showcase the author's work and provide a valuable lesson or experience.
For now, they're narrated by yours truly. If the podcast becomes popular, I'll hire professional voices.

Today's book is Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl. Frankl is the father of logotherapy and a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp. Click here to buy the Kindle ebook on Amazon.

The goal of each episode is to teach you something you didn't know, or to tell a story, and give you an accurate feel for that particular audiobook. Currently, audiobook samples are not easy to find, nor curated or helpful. And because Audible membership is expensive and purchasing individual audiobooks even more so, I decided to create this podcast. It's a hobby, a passion project of sorts :) Featured authors include Malcolm Gladwell, Ernest Hemingway, Jared Diamond, Ralph Waldo Emerson, David Foster Wallace and many more. There will be at least two new books every week. Visit TheBookPod.com to see my curated Amazon store featuring every audiobook on this podcast. You can preview and buy the audiobooks there.
