    "Where has the heat in my relationship gone? Why doesn't the attraction last? Why do we argue over the silliest things? And why are we still together?" If this train of thought sounds familiar, this audiobook is for you. Best-selling author Philip Van Munching and psychotherapist Dr. Bernie Katz have teamed up for a fascinating look at the psychological forces that shape our relationships.

    "Pure Freud"
    Overall

    This book was awful! I was hoping for something insightful... but got 6 hours of pure, unadulterated Freudianism. Sure they call it "psychodynamics" now, but it's still the same pseudoscientific nonsense. This book will ask you to keep and interpret dream diaries, take Freudian slips as revealing great internal truths, and insist that everything you do in life is driven by your Unconscious. Literally, this book is about interpreting your dreams to figure out what you suppressed into your unconscious as a child, and how those suppressed memories are destroying your relationships.

    If you believe in Freud, you might enjoy this book. Otherwise, seriously, look elsewhere.

    Armed camps of eco-survivalists battle purveyors of technology in this exclusive, original production featuring five sci-fi masters and five all-star narrators.

    "METAtropolis = eco-terrorist city-within-a-city"
    Overall

    Disappointing! The narration was great, but the stories are all about glorified eco-terrorist havens within normal cities, set in the near future. Literally. If you dream of lowering your carbon footprint and all your clothing is made of recycled organic hemp, this book is written just for you. But if you're really just looking for good science fiction -- this isn't it. There's no space ships, no cool new worlds or ideas. Just the same stuff you'll hear around any health-food store, writ in an urban setting about 50 or so years into the future. A couple of the stories have a few high-tech toys, but they aren't new concepts and are handled much better elsewhere (for example, the "virtual realities overlaying the real world" theme of the last story was done much better in the book "Rainbow's End"). If you like your sci-fi to be a lecture about sustainability and recycling, then this just might be for you. Otherwise, you might want to skip this one.
