    You’ve got a business colleague who’s hostile...a client who’s furious...a staffer who’s deeply cynical—how do you get people to do what you want in tough situations like these? In Just Listen, veteran psychiatrist and business coach Mark Goulston reveals the secret to how to get through to anyone, even when productive communication seems impossible.“Here's the challenge,” Mark says.

    What disappointed you about Just Listen?

    After reading all the great reviews about this audiobook, I decided to purchase it with my credit. The book is extremely not insightful, lack content and boring. Wish I could get a refund.

    No one can avoid gray hair and wrinkles, but what about preventing the brain from aging? Dr. Eric Braverman, "America's Brain Doctor" and best-selling author has created a simple, science-based plan that can help prevent the worst mental side effects of aging: memory loss, cognitive decline, and mood changes.

    Where does Younger Brain, Sharper Mind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I don't normally write review and rarely have I stumble upon a good audiobook. This book is quite surprisingly informative. The author seems credible and highly knowledgeable in his field of work.

    Patrick Bateman moves among the young and trendy in 1980s Manhattan. Young, handsome, and well educated, Bateman earns his fortune on Wall Street by day while spending his nights in ways we cannot begin to fathom. Expressing his true self through torture and murder, Bateman prefigures an apocalyptic horror that no society could bear to confront.

    Really liked the story and the insight in fashion, life-style and class. I wish I can find other books like this. This is one of those books where you wish it hasn't ended. I like listening to this whenever I go to the gym.

    What's true for training great trial lawyers is true for all winning presenters. According to renowned trial attorney and best-selling author Gerry Spence, presenting a case before decision makers is not simply a technique, but an occasion for summoning your deepest reserves to advocate on behalf of something crucial.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Insightful info on anti-aging


    Has Younger Next Year turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, I'm very disappointed


    How could the performance have been better?

    Insightful info on anti-aging


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Younger Next Year?

    Everything from Chris Crowley together


    Any additional comments?

    Wow, what a rip-off. I don't often write review but this audiobook is such a disappointment despite all the good reviews. I like to listen to the doctor's side more than that nasal voice of Chris. He has nothing useful in the field of anti-aging to offer. This book is directed toward 50-60 years old sedentary life people who never lift a weight in his/her entire live. The comment on how to lift a weight is highly insulting and is very lame. He also encourage people to look like an endurance athlete like Lance Armstrong and not a "body-builder" like Mike Tyson. Did you get it? Mike Tyson is not a body-builder, moron. Mike Tyson is used to last 7-8 rounds of boxing. That requires a lot of endurance. The reason Mike Tyson physique looks less ideal than Lance Armstrong is because he is only 5'8 whereas Lance Armstrong is over 6'0. This has nothing to do with body-building or endurance exercise.

    I'm shocked to see someone like this who has nothing new to offer to be brazen enough to write a book and make millions of dollars off from it. I want my 1 credit back.

    The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change of diet can dramatically reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease.

    For every man who always wondered why some guys have all the luck, Mystery, considered by many to be the world's greatest pickup artist, finally reveals his secrets for finding and forming relationships with some of the world's most beautiful women.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one. The author's content is highly disorganized and lack proper explanation. No useful advice here on how to seduce women.


    Has The Mystery Method turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alan Sklar?

    The narrator was alright.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    After having read all the positive review, I decided to use my one credit to purchase this audiobook. But having almost finish listening to this audiobook, I'm highly disappointment that I have not learn anything useful from this book. The narrator's voice was okay, but the author's content is high disorganized, lack proper explanation and is not convincing. He also appears to be with vague or frugal with this explanation... for example, the author took 1 sentence in explaining why we shouldn't compliment a woman's on her appearance, like it would make us appear needy? Okay - that's it? In all, I was highly disappointed with this book and wish I could get a refund.
