    Story

    A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on. For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?

    Story

    Well narrated, offers some tips here and there but I saw it mainly as propaganda to go to their website and get a free trial of their program - which could be good but not the "book" I thought it would be.

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    Story

    Rob Lowe's book is very entertaining and offers great performance by the reader, Mr. Lowe himself. He is honest, real, and tells awesome Hollywood stories along his very interesting own. His ability to impersonate others is phenomenal, his hard work and heart shines through his life and his great writing.

    Story
    (5770)

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    The story line and the reader's ability to bring life into the audio.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Witness?

    Overall, it is the quality The Witness has to grasp your interest to see what happens next, the un-expected turns and richness of the story.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    Loved her performance in general, she makes the characters come to life. The reader makes you miss the characters at the end of the audio.

    Yes.
