  • "I just love those Duggar gals"

    Story

    This is a great little book. It is rather short and sweet. One of my closest friends is getting ready to foster three precious sisters and already has three boys of her own, and I couldn't wait to share this with her because there are so many great ideas for families and child raising. My other closest friend has five children and she learned a lot too. I think these gals have a great message and a great delivery. This will not be a book for everyone.

    Story
    Where does Subliminal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Overall, an entertaining treatment of the subject matter, but some of the anecdotes/science tidbits i had read in other books (e.g., David Eagleman's "Incognito"), and the total read was not as cohesive or wow-ing as Mlodinow's "Drunkard's Walk" (which i really enjoyed).


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    "theory of mind" - very interesting. i look forward to learning more about it.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I love neuroscience books and love dogs, too, so i thought this would be a good read. The author tells some great anecdotes, and can bring a tear to your eye, but there is not a lot of structure or definitive conclusions in the book. About half way through, i started wondering if maybe there was not enough research to dig deeper into the subject matter, or if maybe it could be updated with more studies (it is about 8 years old). i enjoyed parts of it, but left wishing there was more to it.

  • "A heartbreaking and hilarious look ..."

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    I should have written this book, but David Finch beat me to it!

    The journey he took me on in this book was akin to that which Ebenezer Scrooge embarked on with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come in "A Christmas Carol": I relived my early life, my current relationship, and saw the future -- MY future, if I continue on my current trajectory.

    What I gained from this book is a better understanding of myself through the perspectives of both someone very much like me, and also his loved ones. Not everyone has access to that kind of insight. And you can't beat the price.

    Even if you just want to learn more about a large subset of the population whose brains are wired differently than most -- and have fun doing it -- I can't recommend this book highly enough. But if you are an 'eccentric', 'outcast', or 'misfit' like me, or someone you love just struggles with connecting with others or getting through their day without having a meltdown, this may be the book that changes your life. After a lifetime of not making sense to even myself (much less others), it has changed mine for the better.

    At some point in nearly every marriage, a wife finds herself asking, "What is wrong with my husband?!" In David Finch's case, this turns out to be an apt question. Five years after he married Kristen, the love of his life, they learn that he has Asperger syndrome. The diagnosis explains David's ever-growing list of quirks and compulsions, his lifelong propensity to quack and otherwise melt down in social exchanges, and his clinical-strength inflexibility. But it doesn't make him any easier to live with.

    Marianne Williamson live in seminar leads the audience (and the listener) through a series of exercises and insights designed to foster emotional growth and maturity. Williamson's point that we must acknowledge past pain, but then move on, rather than dwelling on old hurts, is especially helpful.

    Williamson's humor is evident; it's as if one is having a chat with a wise and trusted friend rather than being lectured by a guru. Her self-help message is laced with wisdom and plain common sense, which is, of course, all too uncommon in our world.

But a husband needs respect. Based on extensive biblical and scientific research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs reveals the secret to couples meeting each other's deepest needs: Without love she reacts without respect, and without respect he reacts without love and a destructive, vicious cycle begins.

The Bible is filled with references to husbands and wives, from the story of Adam and Eve to advice in the New Testament, each open to interpretation. In The Meaning of Marriage, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and bestselling author of The Reason for God, uses the scriptures as his guide to show readers what God's call to marriage is, and why this is such a powerful call.

Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory - the most advanced relationship science in existence today - can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many best-selling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships - until now.

So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations?

What it leads to for the woman, most often, is disappointment, despair, and impaired self-esteem. "Sextimacy", as Weber terms it, traps women in relationships that are one-sided and lack emotional intimacy. When this happens, women routinely blame themselves instead of realizing they should blame their romantic strategy.
