    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.

    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.

    Story

    The recording starts in the middle of a sentence (after "this is audible" and the title). Then about 26 minutes in, it starts playing two overlapping tracks at the same time; it sounds like the book is continuing, and the missing opening is playing under it. Hard to tell, since I'm hearing two tracks at once, but whatever it is, it jolted me wide awake. If Audible is able to work this out with the publisher, I'll withdraw my negative review.

  • People of the Lie Vol. 1: Toward a Psychology of Evil

    Dr. M. Scott Peck has inspired millions by combining the deepest insights of psychiatry with those of religion. In this first of a three volume audio series based on his best-selling book People of the Lie, Dr. Peck once again integrates religious teaching with the science of psychology as he offers hope for healing one of society's most persistent failings -- human evil.

    Story

    This volume includes about the introduction and first chapter (or maybe two) of the book. He gave one vignette (the story of the boy whose parents gave him the gun his brother used to commit suicide) and talked briefly about Erich Fromme, and then it was over. The entire printed book is short enough that I can't make sense of why it should have been either abridged or cut into three volumes. If I'd realized what I was getting, I'd have passed.

  • The Guns of August

    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.
