    One of the most original psychoanalysts after Freud, Karen Horney pioneered such now-familiar concepts as alienation, self-realization, and the idealized image, and she brought to psychoanalysis a new understanding of the importance of culture and environment.

    Story

    Great book! I was impressed by how well the author knew me! I also really enjoyed the ongoing, and at times direct, comparative analysis made with philosophies of other psychoanalysts, and the lterary references made to help illustrate certain points. The organization of the writing is inspired, and every chapter builds further on previous reading.

    Based on Stanford University psychologist Kelly McGonigal's wildly popular course The Science of Willpower, The Willpower Instinct is the first book to explain the new science of self-control and how it can be harnessed to improve our health, happiness, and productivity. Informed by the latest research and combining cutting-edge insights from psychology, economics, neuroscience, and medicine, The Willpower Instinct explains exactly what willpower is, how it works, and why it matters.

    I suppose that if we all took the time to actually think about these things, it might seem.... almost obvious. However, we don't.. but we should. And that is what happens here. An excellent read, to be sure.

    A moving coming-of-age story set in the 1900s, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn follows the lives of 11-year-old Francie Nolan, her younger brother Neely, and their parents, Irish immigrants who have settled in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. Johnny Nolan is as loving and fanciful as they come, but he is also often drunk and out of work, unable to find his place in the land of opportunity.

    Nancy says: "Leaves you wondering what happened next -"
    "Classic story, well-performed."

    Story

    Well-performed version of an American classic. A good look at life in the city in the early 1900's.

    Story

    Having worked as a Trainer and curriculum designer for a number of years, I can truly appreciate the thought and planning put into this work. It’s really very, very well done. When looking for a method to learn a new language, my requirement was simple: I had to be able to do this while travelling. I had used another method that displays pictures and associated words, which seemed to work well enough, but the problem with that method was that I had to be near a computer to use it. I spend a lot of time travelling, so I needed something that I could simply listen to and repeat. I was not disappointed, and I recommend the Pimsleur method for anyone that travels; even if you just have a long commute. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and if you stick to it, it will stick to you.

    The perennial New York Times best-selling author here helps listeners discover how to put money in its place and use wealth-building as a tool for joy and fulfillment. Far from a get-rich-quick primer, The Wealth Cure brims with inspired wisdom for building a lasting bounty from the experiences, loved ones, and achievements that really matter.

    Scott says: "Well-spoken narration was not enough."

    Another "self-help" book about someone that helped himself... although apparently the help was never needed. I found someone wealthy speaking about "curing wealth" to be less-than poignant.

    At the age of 24, working with his wife at a car wash, Larry Winters was struggling to get by. He decided he needed to make a change for the better, so he seized control of his life and, day by day, built his own business. Along the way, he learned many lessons about sacrifice, personal responsibility, determination and independence. Winters uses examples from his own life to teach listeners how to gain financial freedom for themselves.

    Amazon Customer says: "Larry Proves that ANYONE can Live the Dream"

    Story

    Unremarkably typical I-was-poor-and-now-I'm-rich-so-you-can-be-too tale of personal woe and "triumph". Mr. Winters' narration is inarticulate, colorless, preachy and passive.
    Don't waste your money.
