I have over 25 years of experience in Healthcare and after drinking copious amounts of coffee decided to stick with truly great coffee and indulge not only in drinking it, but selling it too. I believe life should be a lot of fun and education a life long pursuit.... Learn something new every day and live 'at least' 10% out of your comfort zone at all times.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated) to be better than the print version?

    I never picked up the print version of this book. With limited time on my hands it was ideal as an audio book. I will retain it for future reference and still need to go to the web site and look at the additional tools available.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No character stands out in my mind. I saw this book as an educational tool.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is a first listen for me with reference to Ray Porter. I felt Ray did an excellent job.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Wow, there are so many! The main gift I have from this book is to value my time more and find ways to reduce wasting it.


    Any additional comments?

    Concept in this book is a challenge to implement in your life However, I am already seeing changes that are a huge benefit.

    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!

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great book for anyone who is thinking about relationships, in a relationship, splitting up, about to close that final chapter in a relationship or already divorced.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I found it easy to relate to the situations in this story. They were either very similar to my own personal experiences or the lives of those who are close to me.


    What does Gary Chapman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    When we read a book we interpret it based on our own filters. Gary's passion to help others comes through strong and clear in the audio book. I am not certain I would have had that sense if I had read the book versus listening to it.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts?

    I am hoping to learn to express to my partner what it is that makes me feel loved. I also hope to be able to share the book with them and have them identify their own love language so that I can make them feel completely loved.


    Any additional comments?

    I had this book recommended to me a few years back. I am so glad that I have now had an opportunity to hear it.
