Is our 24/7, CrackBerry, more-faster-now culture eating us alive or setting us free? For everyone feeling trampled by the speed of life and business, author Vince Poscente reveals why harnessing the power of speed is the ultimate solution for our time-starved era. The Age of Speed shows this and other groundbreaking revelations at work with case studies drawn from renegade companies such as Netflix, Geico, and Nintendo. With smart personal revelations, addictively clever pop science, practical case studies, and a fresh voice, The Age of Speed is a fast, fun read.

Business consultant/motivational speaker Poscente ( draws on his experience as an Olympic speed skier to inform this guide to remaining competitive in an increasingly fast-paced world. He advises readers/listeners to assess their tolerance for risk, multitask consciously and effectively, pursue goals in line with their strengths and passions, and more. Sean Mangan's (Area 7) narration is well paced; he smoothly transitions to the "fast facts" interspersed throughout the text. In keeping with the subject, the recording is just four hours long-perfect for a short commute. A smart option for those interested in unconventional approaches to optimizing their performance in business and in life. [The Bard Pr. hc, published in 2007, was a New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller.-Ed.]-Nann Blaine Hilyard, Zion-Benton P.L., IL Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
