    • By Nicholas Boothman
    • Narrated By Nicholas Boothman

    Whether meeting a new client or bumping into a potential mate, you only have a few seconds to make a favorable impression. Is that really possible?

  • The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 58 mins)
    • By Michael Pollan
    • Narrated By Scott Brick
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

    MCRedding says: "Great presentation of a moral dilemma"
    "Loved it"

    Living a more sustanable life and growing some of what we eat I connect with the message here. It is so hard in todays world to be connected to where our food comes from and that is part of the problem. Thanks Michael for your journey, humor, and connection to what we eat.

  • Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 2 mins)
    • By Gary Taubes
    • Narrated By Mike Chamberlain

    Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change—in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes’s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

    Marsha says: "Eye opening, life changing book!"
    "Excellent book"

    Very clear science and the person who said that his message is to stop eating carbs missed the book. This is not a diet book. The message was to reduce eating processed carbs like grains that cause people to get fat..which was just a small part of the book. He presented all the historical data and even what hapens to cultures that start eating a western diet what happens. Thanks to the author for more details and data on the subject.

    Samantha Kincade was after a man. As a Bounty Hunter, it was her job, but in a rowdy Colorado saloon, a gambler with golden tiger eyes saw through her boy's clothes disguise.

    "Excellent romance."

    Strong hero and heroine. So nice the heroine was not whiny or doing stupid stuff and actually had abilities that were not belittled. Plot continued to move. Narrator did a nice job making the boy's voice belivable.

    Wish their was more sex but still a good story and plot with a nice HEA.

  • Dark Melody: Dark Series, Book 12

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 3 mins)
    • By Christine Feehan
    • Narrated By Rebecca Cook
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    They were masters of the darkness, searching through eternity for a mistress of the light. Lead guitarist of the Dark Troubadors, Dayan was renowned for his mesmerizing performances. His melodies stilled crowds, beckoned, seduced, tempted. And always, he called to her. His lover. His lifemate. He called to her to complete him. To give him the emotions that had faded from his existence, leaving him an empty shell of growing darkness.

    Kim says: "Book - 5 stars...narration - 3 stars"
    "I am so sick of this"

    Ok the leading lady was sick through most of the book and it was all about her being good and her heart, love you, and over load of feelings (and I am a woman saying this a little more action please)...yikes I almost could not finish this book. Sex was pretty average when it finally did happen at nearly the end of the book.

    Great narrator but the book plot was thin and disapointing. Yawn.

    Young Michael, an illegal immigrant escaping the troubles in Northern Ireland is strong and fearless and clever, just the fellow to be tapped by Darkey, a crime boss, to join a gang of Irish thugs struggling against the rising Dominican powers in Harlem and the Bronx. The time is pre-Giuliani New York, when crack rules the city, squatters live furtively in ruined buildings, and hundreds are murdered each month.

    Robert says: "What an amazing book"
    "wonderful adventure story"

    Nice to have a fresh story and writing in the days of rehashed stories and drab writing.

    • By Jayne Ann Krentz
    • Narrated By Sandra Burr
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Being called creepy can be hard on your self-esteem - even for an attractive, independent woman like Raine Tallentyre. That's what happened when she made the mistake of revealing her paranormal abilities, bringing her most recent romantic relationship to a hasty end.

    Brenda says: "Sizzle is a definite overstatment."
    "Sizzle and Yawn"

    Not such and intresting book. Could have done better.

    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    When newswoman Britt Shelley wakes up in bed with the handsome and hard-partying Jay Burgess, a rising star detective in the Charleston PD, she remembers nothing of how she got there...or of how Jay wound up dead.

    Kathy says: "Well crafted"
    "Excellent Story"

    So nice to pick up a romance type story with a really good plot. I could guess some of it but other parts kept me guessing.
