  • "Fabulous Insight — Mediocre Literature"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Author Gary Chapman's concept about the 5 love languages is an enlightening insight that everybody should know about. It's that important and valuable.

    The concept is straightforward. Here are the 5 love languages:

    1. Gifts.
    2. Quality time - enjoying doing things together.
    3. Physical/touch (n.b., don't confuse this with sex).
    4. Affirmation or compliments.
    5. Service (i.e., doing things to help the other).

    Everybody has a primary love language. If you express your love to your partner in this language, they will feel loved. If you express your love in another language, especially one they don't particularly value, they will not feel loved.

    It's natural to treat your partner as you would wish to be treated. Hence, you are likely to express your love to your partner via your preferred love language. That's great if you share love languages. You have no need of the 5 love languages concept. If not, you have a problem that understanding this concept can help.

    Sadly, the best way to learn about the 5 love languages is Gary Chapman the writer, and in this case, the reader too.

    Chapman writes at and reads to the high school dropout level. On one hand, that's a great thing, because this message needs to get to the people who seldom read books. On the other hand, for those who are accustomed to reading books, the writing and reading are something akin to reading a non-fiction children's book. While it's politically correct to reposition material to men as a target audience -- this book is just a modification of his original 5 love languages book to speak directly to men -- it's not politically correct to reposition the book to a more literate target audience. That's unfortunate, because for that audience the way the book is written and read is not only annoying, it could make readers think that smart, well-educated folks wouldn't make mistakes in the love languages.

    Married people experience love most strongly through five love languages - quality time, words of encouragement, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch. With thoughtfulness and a gee-whiz tone that works well in all his audios, Gary Chapman aims his insights at men who want more from marriage, as well as those who have more to give. He's a humble teacher, describing the five languages with satisfying examples from his counseling practice and framing his ideas as suggestions.

  • Mode One: Let the Women Know What You're Really Thinking

    "A must listen to audio book for both men and women"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What did you love best about Mode One?

    First, I would warn my friends that Alan uses some "choice words" at times (profanity, X-rated language), but that aside, this is a very enlightening and entertaining audiobook. I have listened to Alan's popular podcast show on BlogTalkRadio, and his interviews are always worth listening to. Matter of fact, he includes excerpts from his two podcast programs in the audiobook. Alan does not mince words while offering advice to men on how to be more successful with women.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mode One?

    Most women prefer to have a long-term romantic and sex partner, but in this day and age, casual sex is also quite common. Alan offers some advice that I believe even most women would agree with, which is stop lying to women about what you really want (sex) and quit manipulating women's emotions to get what you want (again, sex). Women hate men who are liars, cheaters, and game-players!!


    What about Alan Roger Currie’s performance did you like?

    Author Alan Roger Currie speaks with a lot of conviction. You can tell that Alan has had more than his fair share of dating and sexual experiences with women. My only minor criticisms would be that Alan loves to really hammer down certain points of his (he repeats certain points as many as 3 or 4 times!) and as mentioned, he does use profanity and X-rated language in certain portions. I would not allow someone under 17 or 18 years of age to listen unless supervised by an adult


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The audiobook content is definitely for men, but I genuinely enjoyed listening to it from a woman's point of view too. The main message seems to be, if you want to spark romantic interest in a woman, you have to have the courage and confidence to at least approach her and initiate a conversation with her.If you want to take it a step further and persuade a woman to indulge in more casual sex with you, then you really have to show women that you have a nice pair of big brass balls!! (women love super-confident men!)Chapter 10 (or what really should be listed as Chapter 8) is the marquee chapter. I am now going to be on the lookout for men who behave in Mode 2, Mode 3, or Mode 4 instead of Mode 1.


    Any additional comments?

    Alan is going to ask you to take a LOT of notes while listening. Women who listen can pretty much ignore the note-taking exercises, but I would suggest that the men take as many notes as possible. (Alan has some pre-printed notes available on his website)I think the audiobook is a good listen for BOTH sexes. Alan does not teach any methods or techniques that are deceitful or manipulative in nature, which is why he earned my respect as a woman. His teachings centre on bold, upfront, balls out honesty with women. And either women say Yay or Nay. If a woman says "Nay," Alan suggests you just simply move on to the next woman of interest. I think the audiobook is an excellent listen for even a woman!!

    Brene Brown is one of my favorite researchers in the field of emotional study. The Gifts of Imperfection is a great illustration of what it means to life a full life along with operational goals and definitions of words like shame, authenticity, and vulerability. She uses anecdotes and research to make these points in a powerful way.

    My only disappointment with the audio book is the narrator, who is not at all a bad narrator, just isn't at all like Brene Brown. Like many people, I became aware of Brene Brown's work after her TED talk went viral ("The Power of Vulnerability") in June 2010. Her voice and way of speaking is moving and powerful to say the least. I was disappointed not to hear her voice on the audiobook since she's inspiring, funny, and kind of comforting to me.

    **Campaign for Brene Brown to read her audio books!!** Other than that, I loved it :)

    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. 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 will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

    As a man, when you decide that you want to express your romantic or sexual desires, interests, and intentions to a woman, how do you go about communicating those desires and interests to her? Do you communicate your desires and interests to women in a cautious, vague, ambiguous, or 'beat-around-the-bush' manner? Do you avoid approaching women and avoid initiating a conversation with women altogether? Do you regularly cheat on your wife or girlfriend behind her back? Are you currently filled with so much bitterness, misogyny, and resentment toward women that you have no desire whatsoever to even interact with women? When listening to the audiobook version of Mode One: Let the Women Know What You're Really Thinking, Author and Professional Dating Coach Alan Roger Currie describes and examines what he refers to as the "Four Modes of Verbal Communication".

    The Introvert Advantage dispels common myths about introverts - they’re not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial - and explains how they are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation such as chitchat, phone calls, parties, or office meetings can easily become "too much". Most importantly, it thoroughly refutes many introverts’ belief that something is wrong with them. Instead, it helps them recognize their inner strengths - their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration.

    Today's show is an homage to Christian Mann, an erotic-film producer who was a mentor to Susie and the producer of Edward PenisHands, the best porn parody ever! Christian was a second-generation sex-film entrepreneur. His father, Kurt Mann, created the first wrestling mags, nudie mags, and stag-film productions. Like his father, Christian went on to innovate in the adult-entertainment business around multi-cultural and black sex movies. Susie and Christian were friends, and Susie has many fun stories and memories to share with you.
