    Dr. George K. Simon knows how people push your buttons: your children---especially teens---are experts at it, as is your mate. A coworker may quietly undermine your efforts while professing to be helpful, or your boss may prey on your weaknesses. Manipulative people have two goals: to win and to look good doing it.

    Would you listen to In Sheep's Clothing again? Why?

    Yes. It has very good information. On the first listening I felt like a lot of the examples didn't apply to me, but I plan on listening again to see if i missed anything.

    This is an equal opportunity recording! No race, sex, ethnic group, religion, profession or recreational activity escapes the slings and arrows of this outrageous compendium of jokes, barbs and fabricated anecdotes. From mother superiors to ventriloquists, from hat-check girls to senators, everybody gets a dose of not-so-gentle humility in the course of this merciless, raunchy performance.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Jokes were OK but the sound effects and silly voices were irritating.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Reading of the Jokes could be improved.

  • The Charisma Myth: How Anyone Can Master the Art and Science of Personal Magnetism

    What if charisma could be taught? For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial. What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.

    Chlo-bell says: "An excellent treatment of a fascinating topic."

    Would you try another book from Wayne M. Levine and/or Wayne M. Levine?

    Yes, I would give it a try. It got annoying with the constant use of the acronym NUTS. The book has some good ideas. But sometimes I wonder when I read a book like this "What is the womans role in the relationship?" You could almost boil down the book to "Kiss her butt and do anything and everything for her and hope she is happy".

    Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This fascinating and persuasive program argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities - emotional intelligence - that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life.

    Grammy Winner for Best Spoken Comedy Album
    Performed by George Carlin himself, and filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other verbal ordeals, Brain Droppings is infectiously funny.

    New! Don't miss our AudibleComedy combo, featuring original humor from standups Greg Proops and Steve Marmel.

    What disappointed you about Brain Droppings?

    George Carlin came across as a very negative bad person. It had some good observations but was not funny at all.


    Has Brain Droppings turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, just George Carlin.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Material and performance was pretty bad.


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

    Disgust. Why do many comedians think uttering the work F@#ck is funny. It is a word. Get over it. Just because someone says it does not mean everyone is going to howl with laughter.

    Jealousy can invade every relationship, whether it be with husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, family or friends. If we love others and need their love in return we can all suffer from the pain of jealousy. Dr Hauck believes jealousy is a self-defeating emotion which drives away the love we crave. He explains what makes us feel jealous, and shows us how we can control it.

    Yes I would.


    Did Jealousy inspire you to do anything?

    To work at overcoming any jealous feelings I get. The book helped me understand the underlying cause.
