    Imagine how different your life would be if you could tell whether someone was lying or telling you the truth. Be it hiring a new employee, investing in a financial interest, speaking with your child about drugs, confronting your significant other about suspected infidelity, or even dating someone new, having the ability to unmask a lie can have far-reaching and even life-altering consequences. As former CIA officers, Philip Houston, Michael Floyd, and Susan Carnicero are among the world’s best at recognizing deceptive behavior.

    What did you love best about Spy the Lie?

    I loved the content and how they worked the suspense into the theory. Priceless skills can be learned from this book.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    The book started a bit slow but once it got momentum I couldn't stop listening. The narrator has amazing skills with all the different characters. Its been a week after I finished this book and I still find myself thinking about it. Worth every second!!

    The secret behind France's astonishingly well-behaved children is here. When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, she doesn't aspire to become a "French parent". French parenting isn't a known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insist they aren't doing anything special. But French children are far better behaved and more in command of themselves than American kids....

    What made the experience of listening to Bringing Up Bebe the most enjoyable?

    Very practical advice delivered in an interesting and Enjoyable way.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bean


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book! And i loved the narrator! If only i had this advice when my first child was born. I am definitely applying the French approach. Its hard, for me not the kids. They are more relaxed after only a few days.
