    Story
    (9)

    Does the idea of going to a large party make your palms sweat and your mouth go dry? You are not alone. Many people suffer from minglephobia, a secret terror of large parties. Jeanne Martinet's tried-and-true cure is her unique system of techniques and strategies for overcoming social fears. Now you can relax and thrive at any business or social event!

    Chris says: "Very helpful for the mildly shy."
    "Awful. Just awful. Save your money."
    Overall

    I have to agree with other reviewers - this is someone I would not mingle with. She comes across as exceedingly arrogant and her narration is painful to listen to. Many of the points are common sense but that doesn't stop her from beating each explanation to death via examples. I couldn't even finish it. I have about 160 Audible titles (most of which are quite good) - this one ranks dead last. I wish I could recoup the money. Save yours.

    Story

    Retired FBI Agent Candice DeLong has tailed terrorists, gone undercover as a gangster's moll, and was one of the agents chosen to carry out the manhunt for the Unabomber in Montana. Now she explains how she helped solve several of these incredible cases and more.

    Frances says: "Fascinating - Did Not Want It to End"
    "Not bad, but..."
    Overall

    The story flows well enough and stays interesting, though the I-am-feminist-hear-me-roar sidebar comments strewn throughout the book get annoying - would have been better if she'd made her point early and moved on. Still, a satisfying read and good look at the life of an FBI agent. Also contains the first detailed description of the capture of the Unibomber I've read. Overall, I'd rate it between average and good.
