    This audiobook stands alone as an introduction to a long-established branch of personal development psychology. NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) underpins the ideas of best-selling authors like Anthony Robbins. This audiobook takes the listener straight to the source. This is a no-nonsense guide on how to use NLP in your personal life and examine thought processes in order to cut out negative thinking.

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

    A different narrator, maybe? More applicable content?


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kate Burton and Romilla Ready again?

    probably not


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was a chipper Englishman. I just wasn't enjoying it.


    What character would you cut from Neuro-Linguistic Programming For Dummies Audiobook?

    Not applicable.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was disappointing. The content was not what I was expecting.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

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

    Yes, because it was so enrapturing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Twilight?

    I couldn't possibly pick just one. Let me just say this: The movie only shows about 25% of what is in the book. I think my favorite part of this book is the description of how Jacob and Bella actually fell in love (which the movie doesn't describe).


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Running through the woods


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

    Yes!!!! I couldn't, but I would have.


    Any additional comments?

    I am 30 years old, and don't read teen literature. But I couldn't put this book down.

    What did you like best about Dead Until Dark? What did you like least?

    The story-line was different, and kept me interested. The characters southern accent really got on my nerves though. And I really didn't like Sooki, to be honest.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    No surprise


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    She got the essence of a southerner down pat.


    Did Dead Until Dark inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I read the second book in the series, but couldn't go on after that. Sooki's character paired with the southern drawl just grated on my nerves too badly.

    Since time began, there have been Nightwalkers - the races of the night who live in the shadows of the moonlight. Love with humans is absolutely forbidden, and one man makes certain to uphold this ancient law: Jacob, the Enforcer. For 700 years, he has resisted temptation. But not tonight... Jacob knows the excuses his people give when the madness overtakes them and they fall prey to their lust for humans. He's heard every one and still brought the trespassers to justice. Immune to forbidden desires, uncontrollable hungers....

    Story
    If you could sum up Jacob in three words, what would they be?

    Demons, Passion, Romanian-accent


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fantasy element. The elemental demons were imaginitive.


    Which character – as performed by Xe Sands – was your favorite?

    Jacob


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jacob and Bella are in the castle, and they are interrupted


    Any additional comments?

    I read the whole series, and it was pretty good. The Romanian accent got a little old after a while (towards the end of the series), but was well perfomed by Xe Sands. I would recommend giving the series a go. Each of the books is completely different, while following the original story-line.

    Contrary to conventional wisdom, our brains and bodies are hardwired to carry out an evolutionary mission that determines much of what we do, from life plans to everyday decisions. With an accessible tone and a healthy disregard for political correctness, this lively and eminently readable book popularizes the latest research in a cutting-edge field of study: one that turns much of what we thought we knew about human nature upside-down.

    What did you love best about Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters?

    I'm a huge fan of evolutionary psychology. This covers all the basics, and more!


    What other book might you compare Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters to and why?

    I can't say I've read anything quite like it. Closest thing would have to be A General Theory of Love - only because it deals with some evolutionary psychology, but mostly neuropsychology.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hoye – was your favorite?

    Does not apply


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The section that actually explains "why beautiful people have more daughters". It was very in-depth, and even a little hard to follow. I will have to re-read it in order to concretely memorize the concept. But that is not a complaint. I found that section in particular highly interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent read.

    Author used the word "lethal" too many times. Otherwise, it was well done.

    She was just an ordinary mortal...until death catapulted her into a seductive world she never imagined. "You're dead" is so not what Allie Watson wants to hear. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like the dark, angelically handsome man who ferried her to this strange, hidden land. The last thing she remembers is stepping off a curb in front of a cross-town bus. Now she's surrounded by gorgeous fallen angels with an unfortunate taste for blood---and they really don't want her around. Not exactly how she pictured heaven.

    What did you like best about Raziel? What did you like least?

    I didn't like the book. I couldn't even get very far through it because the main character was so idiotic and shallow. I couldn't relate to her at all. I found her whiney and irritating.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kristina Douglas? Why or why not?

    No, because I hated the character.


    Have you listened to any of Karen White and Paul Costanzo ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't


    Was Raziel worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I give this a three star rating because I can appreciate the talent that went into writing it. I will not read another book by this author.

    Dark. Mysterious. Sensual. When Bronse Chapel, the commander of a specialized unit of the Interplanetary Militia, begins to dream about a beautiful and exotic brunette, he wants to dismiss it as being induced by lack of sleep ... or perhaps lack of sex. But his instincts tell him it's something different, something far more dangerous. Ravenna is the leader of the Chosen Ones, a small group of people from her village born with extraordinary powers.
