    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Story

    The introduction in this book is painful!! I probably re-started the book five times in three months. I had a difficult time getting "into" it. However, once I got through that (2 hour) "hump"... I absolutely loved the book. I immediately downloaded and read the rest of the series within a few short weeks.

    I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend.

    If you're looking to get married and you're not, there's most likely a very good reason: you. Not that you're a bad person - you're certainly not! It's just that you haven't yet become the woman you need to be in order to have the partnership you want. So how can you grow into someone who is ready to say "I do" and to attract the same in a mate? You start with this book. Based on her wildly popular Huffington Post article, Why You're Not Married . . . Yet dishes out straightforward, no-holds-barred advice for women.

  • Delivered From Distraction: Get the Most Out of Life with Attention Deficit Disorder

    In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. Now a second revolution is under way in the approach to ADD, and the news is great. Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.

    Story

    This book is NOT written specifically for audience of doctors, students, teachers, parents, patients or children, but ANY individual whose life is influenced and affected by ADD/ADHD. Dr. Hallowell does an excellent job of relating any clinical information to understandable, everyday concepts that the listener can truly comprehend.

    As a person with ADD, the stories in the book provoked a plethora of emotions. Most noticeably, the author generated an indescribable sense of “inner peace” after the first few moments! Shortly after the introduction, I was convinced Dr. Hallowell wrote this book while following me around for the last 27 years! I occasionally looked over my shoulder suspicious he was in the back seat! Some stories brought on a few memories of frustration, sadness, anger and pain. It inspired and motivated me to better myself. It made me satisfied, peaceful and happy by encouraging me to focus on the GREAT, UNIQUE qualities I have and things I do BETTER than most. It made me laugh out loud listening to such similar stories from other people when you think you are the ONLY one. Most importantly, it has given me strength, hope, courage and determination to improve my quality of life, set goals and develop a plan to reach them.
    Enjoy!

    Thanks, Dr. Halloway
