RAIN What a Paperboy Learned About Business

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jeffrey J. Fox

Business & Finance • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Sounding both earnest and relaxed, Jeffrey Fox’s outstanding reading helps make his latest audio a powerful lesson for salespeople, negotiators, managers, and entrepreneurs. It starts with the story of Rain, a young paperboy who wins customers, influences people, and builds his business with pluck and determination. Fox’s soft vocal urgency, along with his ability to write and deliver dialogue, creates enormous curiosity about where the story is going and when the lesson’s abstractions will be delivered. In the program’s second half, each phase of Rain’s adventure becomes a springboard for Socratic teaching on topics like ethics, customer service, negotiating, innovating, and respecting one’s teachers. The strategies are intelligent, but it’s the author’s warm reading and skillful moderation of mood that make the production's message endure. T.W.
