    Story
    (63)

    Peter Mayle once again returns to the beautiful but complicated world of Provence, to find that the highly competitive boutique wine trade has hidden depths that cannot be hidden by the sunny grape arbors above the ground. Mayle's usual fish-out-of-water British protagonist comes to inspect a Provencal vineyard left to him by his newly-dead uncle.

    The structure of your brain changes constantly, in a dynamic, unfolding process that you yourself can direct to create the life you want.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Getting to the point instead of going on and on about what the book was going to say.


    What could Rick Hanson and Rick Mendius have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Again, get to the point. Clearly the authors didn't have enough material to write a whole book or they wouldn't have spent so much time explaining what they were going to do.


    What didn’t you like about Rick Hanson and Rick Mendius ’s performance?

    They sounded like they were giving a sales pitch.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I never did get past the sales pitch. I had hoped this would be a relaxing book and, although it did put me to sleep, it was anything but. It reminded me of the advertisements on the internet that claim you can lose weight following one easy step and then go on and on and on...but you never get that tip. I found this book so irritating I didn't even want to fast forward to see if it had anything of substance.
