    Ponyboy can count on his brothers. And on his friends. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up "greasers" like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect, until the night someone takes things too far.

    I remember reading this book in school, many years ago - so when my son brought it home to read as english 8 homework, I decidied to download it one evening so that we could discuss it together after he finished reading it. It's a great story for many reasons - the class differences and similarities are very well detailed. The main character is very captivating in the book and is easy to lissen to as an audible book. It's hard to stop listening - luckily it's not a long book.

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    "Details!"
    Overall

    I unfortunately, I watched the movie before reading the book. The number of "details" missed in the movie are thankfully all here. It was interesteing to see how Hollywood had taken and twisted certain segments of the story then disregarded others. This was an excellent listen/read. If you've watched the movie and are craving more about Andy/Emily then read on.

    Younger Next Year is about how to turn back your biological clock. How to become functionally younger every year for the next five to 10 years, and continue to live with vitality and grace into your 80s and beyond.

    A. Stephens says: "Excellent information"
    "Younger Next Year - start right now!"
    Overall

    This is a great listen for men or women. Since I am a woman, I would like to see a women's version of it told by two women. That aside, it's easy to read and very informative. I talked about it so much that my husband willingly listened to it too. He loved the “fresh powder skiing description - he said it was perfect and that the author definitely new what he was talking about!

    Why did crime in New York drop so suddenly in the mid-90s? How does an unknown novelist end up a best-selling author? Why is teenage smoking out of control, when everyone knows smoking kills? What makes TV shows like Sesame Street so good at teaching kids how to read? Why did Paul Revere succeed with his famous warning?

    Zentaro says: "An interesting listen"
    "The Tipping Point - the best."
    Overall

    If you are in business - you have to read this book. Easy to listen to and worth re-listening to anytime you feel a need to be re-energized about why you're in business. The small steps in the right direction - can make a big difference.

    Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their moms? How much do parents really matter? What kind of impact did Roe v. Wade have on violent crime?

    Timothy says: "Fascinating book, despite the title."
    "Freakonomics - Fantastic!"
    Overall

    Great listen, lots of material here to dress up your small talk while mingling with strangers at cocktail parties. It is a fun book, with lots of new perspectives, insights and facts. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a need to collect unusual/fascinating information. I'm going to read this one again very soon.

    Author Joanne Watson dreamed of full-time motherhood, but she and her husband, like many couples across America, felt they simply couldn't afford it on his salary alone. Instead of going back to work, she decided to help boost her husband's income...and tripled his earnings!

    Sorry to sound harsh but... this was the biggest disappointment of any audible book I've downloaded so far. The title is very discriptive - but that's where it stops. The thinking is very dated and degrading to women with any initiatives. It also reflects poorly on men - they are made out to be lazy with no hope of succeeding on their own in this book.

    Don't waste your time - really. If you want to be a stay at home Mom start your own business on eBay or do anything to help yourself.
