"Familiarity breeds contempt" as in marriage, so with this audiobook.
I am so disappointed. I am halfway through this audiobook and I have yet to see any actionable steps. I fell asleep between hours 4-5, and I doubt I will go back and listen to the material I missed unless I have nothing else on my virtual book shelf to occupy my attention.
The book is a painful recount of the stories of the psychologist's patients, and nearly every problem that could exist in the bedroom. The only thing it did do well was to give me the impression that I was certainly not alone in my boredom and dissatisfaction. I already knew that. I wanted to know what to do about it! That's why I bought the book.
I kept thinking it would get better if I kept going, but not yet, and not likely from what I can tell.
If you want to know how to make your marriage better and the sex more interesting, buy a different book, like a technique manual, or use the gentler steps in the Art of Seduction. Better yet try for French Women Don't Sleep Alone. Same content, but more entertaining, and better suggestions on how to fix the problem. Definitely don't waste your time or money on this one.
I haven't finished it yet, and it's been several months since I've had it. The books I'm into get completed in less than 2 weeks.
Love Sci Fi and Fantasy books since I was 8, starting reading A Princess of Mars series in Junior High School thanks to my Uncle Lester.
I found it really difficult to understand her and to listen to the author read this book. This is one of the few books I have never finished.
Just don't even bother unless you like long winded professional gossip. I suppose the biggest drawback with me is that Ms. Perel narrated this as well. She doesn't leave you with anything more than a clinican's view of her client's problems who seem to have bigger problems than their sexual disfunctions.
I gave this four and one half hours. I won't do it again.
This book has some really good information. I loved the author reading it. I have listened to a some sections a few times. Well worth the credit.
This book really explained a lot about how relationships work. The author narrates it and you can easily get lost in her voice. It's an easy book to enjoy, listen to, but especially to learn from. I recommend it to all my friends and family.
Straight to the point!
The book is very well read! It feels like your are listen to a novel rather than a thesis.
none. It is a thesis
You will live a happier life if you know about all this!
I just can't get into this book. Dr. Jamie Turndorf has a podcast with better, more positive and proactive advice. This book makes me feel trapped and depressed and I don't like it! I'm too happy for this, just looking for some fun tips and info, not some dragging rambling, not even sure what this author is talking about.
I love learning thru books, about life, people and ways to be better. My best listen so far? The Power of Now, have a good listen!
Its a different sort of book, probably because it is not american. It does not give you a step by step approach to solving your problems, or the how to relationship manual. It engages you in a open ended discussion about couples, fidelity and how we view sex and attraction inside couples.
I love that the author has opened up this discussion, something that I believe we need to talk about and think more. This is the second book of its kind I read, and plan to read more, as it is such an important and interesting subject.
The only fault I find in this book are the French words. It is meant to make it cooler and sexy, but really, the book is in english! I knew some of the words as I do have some basic french, but each time I heard one I though to myself "not cool!" as on an audiobook, you don't even get the spelling to be able to go and look for it!
The narration was good for a author narration, but of course a professional narration is always better.
All and all, a great and fun read!
