    Dr. Gary Chapman identifies five basic languages of love and then guides couples towards a better understanding of their unique languages of love. Learn to speak and understand your mate's love language, and in no time you will be able to effectively love and truly feel loved in return. Skillful communication is within your grasp!

    "Enjoyable, helpful"
    Overall

    This book flows nicely, is narrated pleasantly, and contains enough good information to justify the time. It is not the definitive work on communications in relationships, but it is one more perspective that should be considered. While the author gives five approaches to better communicate with your partner, the real crux of the biscuit is that it helps you actually look at your partners wants and needs. This is one of a hundred ways to skin a cat, but it is a valid way and a good addition to your repertoire. And, a very pleasant listen.

    The Pickup Artist is a salacious book about the continuing adventures of the world's most famous pickup artist, Mystery, who was first introduced as the ringleader of a subculture of pickup artists chronicled in Neil Strauss's 2005 best seller The Game. After fame, fortune, and reality television, a group of pickup artists live in a gorgeous Miami mansion and live the life many merely dream of.

    Overall

    The orginal material in Magic Bullet was an attempt to present methodology as seen by this crew of PUA's. This current imitator is piece of trash devoid of useful opinion or information not obtainable elsewhere and is more an ego piece. It appears to be an experiment in stream-of-consciousness writing without the consciousness. I dare you to listen past 30 minutes.

  • Delivered From Distraction: Getting the Most Out of Life with Attention Deficit Disorder

    In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. Now a second revolution is under way in the approach to ADD, and the news is great. Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.

    Overall

    The abridged version does exactly what was intended- make the information digestible to those who would otherwise get stuck between the jacket cover and preface. For me, it was just the right blend to interest me enough to go for the unabridged version. The unique perspective of the author's credentialed expertise and personal involvement makes for a very enjoyable and informative listen. The narration is spot on. The book loses a point for having more women's-magazine 3rd person stories than i like, but it is a style issue, a time issue, that does not detract from the book.

    Overall

    Very informative and interesting. The woman's magazine style of plenty of 3rd party stories will appeal to many in giving life to the information. The price of that is time. The abridged version gives you a very good 50k foot view, and when you can linger, give this a listen. Good narration, as well. Listen to the Amen book 'Change Your Brain...' as a companion book.

  • Dr. Z on Scoring: How to Pick Up, Seduce, and Hook Up with Hot Women

    Dr. Z grounds her methods in scientific research and field-tested facts, using her years of experience in academia and as one of the world's most popular models to formulate a seduction manual complete with all the secret, sure-fire tips men have always wanted to know (and women hoped they would never find out).

    Overall

    The accent is charming and the material covered pretty well in layman terms. It might be considered overly long, but I think justice was done. Non-novices will recognize most of this material, but for a one-stop shop, it does very well. Individual areas are easily eclipsed elsewhere with greater depth, priority, accentuation, and with better examples perhaps. This is a 102 textbook, a bit better than back-to-basics, or perhaps a Thai-food sampler - enough but not too much. Each chapter is summarized and Cliff-noted at the end. This is a very nice listen and worth the time. By the way, you are NOT going to pick up, seduce, and hook up with hot babes by reading a book.

    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Elisabeth says: "Good for an intro to the Law of Attraction"

    Overall

    Think about something and you "attract" it. Yeah, you don't get something without thinking about it first, agreed. But, step two is not "Magic Happens". This book would have you think so. Nice book if you need a mental rabbit's foot. Don't take it seriously.
