    I liked it. She gives you some things to think about. Not very specific, but feels good. Felt like it ended to soon.

    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I enjoyed the stories, but found the advice to be dated. I dont need to be reminded to smile at my wife.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"
    "Interesting"
    Overall

    I listened to this book with my wife and we really enjoyed it. Its well told and I felt that being read by the author added a flavor to it that you wouldnt get reading the book. It gives you an interesting glimpse into the Afghan culture. Well worth listening to.

    One of the few survivors of a League sneak attack on his poor and miserable homeworld of Carescria, Wilf Brim sets out to settle the score. Were it not for the attrition from the war that followed, Wilf would never have escaped his lower-class status and been accepted into the Academy. Now, freshly graduated, young Sublieutenant Wilf Ansor Brim, Imperial Fleet, begins his first assignment, Helmsman of the I.F.S. Truculent.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed the story and characters. But whats with the new names for measurments and time.. Why bother? I found it distracting.. Also think I would have prefered a regular reading rather than the dramitization style of this... I sometimes found it hard to hear what was going on, and the sound effects in the background didnt really add to the story.. Those complaints aside I really enjoyed the book.

    A new and updated edition of the all-time bestselling book on marriage enhancement and divorce prevention. Since it was first published in 1994, Fighting for Your Marriage has been the bestselling book in its field. As in the original edition, the book offers invaluable advice on achieving better communication and problem-solving skills, using structured techniques to resolve conflicts, sharing a core belief system, understanding commitment and forgiveness, restoring intimacy, increasing fun, and improving your sex life. The authors show that conflict in intimate relationships is as normal and essential as love, but it's how you fight and resolve conflicts that determines the difference between a sustained healthy marriage or a painful divorce.

    Overall

    I think the thing I got most from this book, is that issues we are having are common and we are not experiencing something others havent dealt with. There was some basic good information that pointed out some of the stuff we have been doing poorly, but didnt give much real advice for moving forward. It did offer some advice for people that really cant talk or communicate on issues...
