    A source of healing and inspiration for millions, this modern classic spent over three years on the New York Times best seller list and made codependency a household word. Codependent No More contains dozens of real-life examples, personal reflections, exercises, and self-tests to help you along the road to recovering your own life. For anyone struggling with a relationship involving alchoholism or other compulsive behaviors, this program points the way to healing and the renewal of hope.

    Virginia says: "A great book"
    "EXCELLENT!"
    Overall

    For anyone wondering why they are always worn out emotionally and feel the need to "make everyone better and fix everything." This is the book for you. Although Beattie focuses on alcoholism, Codepencency is about more than having an alcoholic spouse. Codependency is about how you cope with dysfunctional relationships where one individual carries the load and doesn't allow the other to face their responsibilities. Excellent listen! Excellent Read as I bought the hard copy as well.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story

    I don't regret getting this book, it was a lovely summer read. The writing is repetitive, non-inspiring. The love making/sex scenes - yeah, they're pretty hot and descriptive. I don't usually listen to Fiction so this was a first for me. Took a bit to get used to the narrator, Becca Battoe, by the third book I think I managed it, but then by the third book I was becoming bored even with the sex scenes!

    Predictable on all levels. But if you enjoy the Harlequin Romance type books, you'll love it.

    In this truly inspirational audio book, Anita Moorjani relates how, after fighting cancer for almost four years, her body began shutting down - overwhelmed by the malignant cells spreading throughout her system. As her organs failed, she entered into an extraordinary near-death experience (NDE) where she realized her inherent worth... and the actual cause of her disease. Upon regaining consciousness, Anita found that her condition had improved so rapidly that she was released from the hospital within weeks - without a trace of cancer in her body!

    I already knew what to expect from this story and was not disappointed. A wonderful reminder of how important self love is and how important it is to be who you are.

    No matter how sophisticated or wealthy or broke or enlightened you are, how you eat tells all. Geneen Roth's masterwork, Women, Food and God explores the relationship between how we eat and how we see ourselves in the world.

    "More than a weight loss book"
    Overall

    Story

    This book is so much more than just a weight loss book. It challenges you to look inside yourself for the answers that are there. Weight isn't about food. Food is not the enemy, we are our own enemies by avoiding what we feel and what we don't want to feel. I would highly recommend this book to anyone - it isn't about weight loss, it's about finding your true self and honouring you.

    A good listen. A little monotone at times, but the messages are clear and easy to follow.
