Designed specifically to focus on the interests and needs of commuters, the new Freeway Guides series of audiobooks features dynamic, entertaining instructions by established leaders in their fields supported by high production values. The company was cofounded in 2006 by motivational speaker/trainer Susan Leahy (The Freeway Guide to Nailing the Job Interview) and film director/producer Jared Patrick as a result of their frustration at wasting time during their daily commute on the Southern California freeways. They blended their talents and expertise to create these effective, affordable, and practical training materials tailored especially for busy people on the go.
The mixed-media production includes the main instructor's presentation, supported by a variety of additional character voices and a wide range of catchy music and sound effects. The result is akin to the early days of radio plays, and the 80-minute length for each program is just about right for most listeners as they trek to and from their offices. All Freeway Guides programs are originally produced for the audio format. - Dale Farris, Groves, TX - Library Journal, 3/15/08
Licensed financial adviser Bielagus (Getting Loaded) shares what he learned by getting himself out of thousands of dollars of debt as he covers the fundamentals of money management, including organizing your money, setting up and sticking to a budget, taking on debt wisely, understanding how the market works, and grasping key points about insurance and home ownership. While the information here is certainly not new, the always lively narration and impressive production make these brief, fun, and highly pragmatic programs useful to the iPod generation interested in making the most of their commute. Highly recommended for all public libraries. - Dale Farris, Groves, TX - Library Journal, 3/15/08
Bielagus, a financial advisor, organizes this compact lesson around three points--that now is the time to begin financial housekeeping, that money should be a means to other goals, and that good money habits are more important than money itself. This motivating and informative overview covers topics such as earning sufficiently, spending wisely, buying insurance, managing debt, and investing. Presenting ideas that have understated power, the audio is punctuated with sound effects and segmented with titles read by professional talent. These production features and the clear writing itself allow the massive amount of information to unfold without sounding overwhelming or disjointed. The author's natural speaking style is clear enough not to interfere with his message and friendly enough to make him an enjoyable freeway companion.
