    In this Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, historian Barbara Tuchman brings to life the people and events that led up to World War I. This was the last gasp of the Gilded Age, of Kings and Kaisers and Czars, of pointed or plumed hats, colored uniforms, and all the pomp and romance that went along with war. How quickly it all changed...and how horrible it became.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone deaf.


    What didn’t you like about Nadia May’s performance?

    She was way too shrill. I have other books she's read that weren't awful, but she was intolerable here.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend the version read by John Lee.

  • Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much: A 4-Step, 8-Week Plan to Finally Lose the Weight, Manage Emotional Eating, and Find Your Fabulous Self

    Colette Baron-Reid understands the real reason many of us struggle to lose weight and keep it off. It isn't that we don't know what to eat or that we don't have enough willpower; it's that we are responding to feeling too much. Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much focuses on the keys to weight loss for sensitive people: managing empathy, setting and maintaining healthy boundaries, eating to support well-being, and dealing with challenging situations that can trigger disordered eating.

    Rachel says: "A gentile approach that, when applied, makes sense"
    "Doesn't work as an audiobook"

    Story
    What disappointed you about Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much?

    The material presented here is a step by step program to follow methodically, so it really needs a workbook for reference. I was constantly bookmarking areas that I'd need to return to to make notes when I wasn't driving. Also, I felt that the section on EFT would have benefited from a visual presentation.


    Would you recommend Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not as an audiobook. I can't speak to the effectiveness of the program itself.


    What about Colette Baron-Reid’s performance did you like?

    The author reads well, which in my experience is unusual.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.
