Comments from some of those who selected Audible as one of their top tools

“On the go listening makes it easy while commuting” L&D UK, 2020

“There are times you want to read and there are times you don’t. I like being able to listen to a book while doing other tasks or even driving. It is a nice change from looking at a screen or book to read.” Teacher, 2020

“Listening to books while hiking with my dogs has improved how many books I can consume.” David Verhaag, Company founder, USA, 2020

“I listen to one business book a month.” Cat Malcom, Design Practice Manager, Australia, 2020

“Probably half the books I read, I do it in audio. Audible connection with Kindle in some books (called whispersync) is a great opportunity to re-read some passages or use listening/reading at the same time.” Conrado Schlochauer, Consultant/Speaker/Researcher, Brazil, 2020

“Portable learning OR entertainment.” Penny Pearson, Coordinator, USA, 2020
