    Not much helpful and didn't realize it wasn't a true book but rather a daily listen to reflect.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Anthony Robbins again?

    Maybe...I am just not motivated by such speakers...It's just not in my personalty.


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

    Same raspy voice and high energy delivery.


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

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    • UNABRIDGED (6 mins)

    Story
    (6683)

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Go the F--k to Sleep to be better than the print version?

    Samuel is a master story teller....well done!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Samuels voice


    What does Samuel L. Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Again. Samuels voice is just perfect for this story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The joys of parenthood in the real world.

  • In Defense of Food

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 23 mins)
    • By Michael Pollan
    • Narrated By Scott Brick

    Story
    (565)

    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    Kimberly says: "Good book, but read The Omnivore's Dilemma first"
    "Awesome history of why we are so mixed up !"

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

    Everyone should understand the histrory of what we currently are eating - which isn't food but rather food like products.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The given reasons of why we are so confused over what is healthy to eat and what isn't.


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

    He gave the book the feeling that the Author was there in the room with me giving me a lecture worth my time.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Would have liked to but needed to listen to it in installment,
