Hey guys,

I was wondering if any of you had really long commutes and used audio cds to keep yourself productive.

I currently have the following books on cd and listen to them in my car:

Freakonomics
The Art of Closing Sales
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
The Undercover Economist
The Toyota Way
Sun Tzu's Art of War
Innovator's Dilemma
How to Win Friends and Influence People
5 Steps of Successful Selling
The No ******* Rule
The Millionaire Next Door
The Richest Man in Babylon.
The Pimsleur guide to learning Hindi.

For my next group of audio cds I'm going to look for Audio CDs which will help with the GMATs. I think Audio CDs which build up your vocabulary would probably be most helpful.

Anyone else into Audio Books because of very long commutes and a need to make themselves more productive?

Want to list which books you have on Audio CD?

The Science of Self-Confidence was a pretty good one that I listened to. You guys might listen to this stuff in the car but to be honest I used to listen to a lot of these self-help books on my iPod while I was lifting. My iPod stopped working a few months ago though so I haven't been able to keep up with it at all.
I listened to the full unabridged Atlas Shrugged audiobook too... took me a good months or so to get through it because it's some 56 hours long.

I highly enjoy finance and economics as subjects.

I enjoy almost anything to do with business, be it sales, investment, or management.

My true love is science, but its hard to find good audiobooks for science.
