  • Relaxation

    • UNABRIDGED (55 mins)
    • By Hugh Fraser
    • Narrated By Hugh Fraser

    After instructions as to the appropriate position and situation in which to listen to the audio you are given, you will be encouraged to slow down your breathing mechanism and allow yourself the time to release any tightness or tension in the body.

    Pamela T. says: "Very Relaxing- Until Audible Brands It"
    "get rid of fake wave noise!"

    it is more distracting than relaxing.

  • 3 Steps to a Strong Family

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs and 5 mins)
    • By Linda Eyre, Richard Eyre
    • Narrated By Linda Eyre, Richard Eyre, Saydi Eyre

    How do we build strong families in a world that threatens to tear the very fabric of the family apart? This guide provides parents with a 3-step program to improve family communication and give children a sense of consistency and security. These simple steps are: a family legal system, a family economy, and family traditions. The plan allows parents significant opportunities to praise and reward their children, while promoting open communication. Linda and Richard Eyre, authors of the No. 1 national best seller Teaching Your Children Values, have 9 children of their own.

    Gillian says: "tips for raising a huge family..."
    "tips for raising a huge family..."

    the above would have been a better title....enjoyable listen...great parents....but the tips are better suited for 4 or more kids. I would still recommend as a good parenting read though.

  • Home to Big Stone Gap

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 10 mins)
    • By Adriana Trigiani
    • Narrated By Adriana Trigiani

    When Ave Maria Mulligan, a thirty-five-year-old self-proclaimed spinster, discovers a skeleton in her family closet, her quiet life begins to unravel. Comic and compassionate, Big Stone Gap is the story of a woman who thinks life has passed her by, only to learn that the best is yet come. Don't miss the sequel Big Cherry Holler.

    Sophielei says: "Just not my type of book, I guess"
    "just enjoyable"

    I ordered my 2nd selection from this author....very easy to listen, and get absorbed in....I find my mind wandering with most fiction...not the case here.

  • Relax and Live Stress-Free

    • UNABRIDGED (1 hr and 7 mins)
    • By Abe Kass, R.S.W.
    • Narrated By Wayne June

    You were born to a live a happy, meaningful, and satisfying life. If you are overly stressed this is not possible. Being stressed and agitated is very damaging to your mind and body. Stress can lead to muscle tension, headaches, difficulty sleeping, poor concentration, and overtime to serious illness. Feeling relaxed will make the world look different, brighter, and friendlier. At first, deliberately reducing stress and increasing relaxation may seem awkward, unnatural.

    Jerrypine says: "Very pleased!"
    "this book caused me stress"

    I listened to entire audio one morning, my poor husband got to hear me rant. This was the most comical attempt as a relaxation book i've ever heard/read. The worst part is when author starts rattling off odd visuals that do not connect with one another, nor does he pause to even let you absorb it...He writes mostly in the "mystical" without any concrete tips of how the heck to relax!!!! Yikes!

  • Real Boys: Rescuing Our Sons from the Myths of Boyhood

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 7 mins)
    • By William Pollack
    • Narrated By John McDonough

    After more than two decades of research at Harvard Medical School, clinical psychologist William Pollack concludes that our sons are in trouble. As he examines the causes of this crisis, Dr. Pollack offers ways we can help boys grow up into healthy adults.

    Gillian says: "great relaxation tape"
    "great relaxation tape"

    audible has a limited selection of parenting selections. I thought I'd give this 21 hour audio selection a shot. Author makes some valid points....but puts me to sleep in about 10 way I'll make it through the repetitive ideas for volumes 2 and 3.
