    Set against a vivid backdrop, The Last Summer (of You and Me) is the enchanting story of a beach-community friendship triangle among three young adults for whom summer and this place have meant everything. Sisters Riley and Alice, now in their 20s, have been returning to their parents' modest beach house every summer for their entire lives.

    "Fabulous trip back in time"
    Overall

    What a thoroughly delightful story, and a very engaging reader, which makes the story that much more a treat to listen to for a journey both back in time and to a foreign land. Having been both to London, Wales and Scotland, I easily pictured the crag and the many well tended castles, and now have a lovely fairy tail to go with the breath taking scenery. I intend to look for otherbooks by this author. You will NOT be disappointd,

  • The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't

    Story
    (78)

    In a landmark article published in the Harvard Business Review, Stanford University professor Robert I. Sutton addressed a taboo topic that affects every workplace: employees who are insensitive to their colleagues, corporate bullies, bosses who just don't get it, the kind of people who make you exclaim in exasperation, "What an asshole!" Now, in a definitive book that addresses this growing problem, Sutton shows you how you can work with unsavory people without becoming one of them yourself.

    Overall

    I hesitated to purchase this book because once it's on the I-POD, there is alway chance of our teen sons being interested in looking at it. I then decided that if they asked about it, I would let let listen and it would be a great opportunity to tell how things will be in their lives in just a few short years. There can't be ANYONE who does not identify with this book, whether as a transgressor or victim, and both sides can (hopefully) learn. And the humor factor is pretty high, the writing well done, and the scenarious true to life. It's a hit-you know, the book you KNOW you will DEFINITELY listen to many times over the life of your I-POD! Great "light
    listen" where you learn without even knowing it!
    Language is the only barrier for either kids or adults who can't just filter it out-I got tired of it so I just began to ignore it.
