    Introduction and background research to the Brain Magic series. Includes 21 questions and answers, on such topics as brain capacity - myths and reality; how much of your brain you use; the differences between men's and women's brains; and more.

    This was a good intro, but the book is split into several parts and isn't worth paying the money for in several parts. Read Brain Rules by Medina instead! At least you get a whole book!!

    What if your mother-in-law turned out to be an evil, cold-blooded witch... literally? Ever since fabulously wealthy Malcolm Doran walked into her life and swept her off her feet, fledgling architect Jane Boyle has been living a fairy tale. When he proposes with a stunning diamond to seal the deal, Jane can't believe her incredible luck and decides to leave her Paris-based job to make a new start with Malcolm in New York....

    What disappointed you about 666 Park Avenue?

    This is not like the TV show at all. I thought the plot was week and the characters did not engage me.


    Has 666 Park Avenue turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What about Ilyana Kadushin’s performance did you like?

    Good performance, not great.


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

    Disappointment

    If the planet Krypton had a gravitational field strong enough to account for Superman's amazing strength, would it be possible to launch a rocket ship from the planet's surface? Could evolution actually produce X-Men? The Science of Superheroes takes a lighthearted but clearheaded look at the real science behind some of the greatest superhero comic books of all time.

    This is the second best Audible Book I've listened too! I highly recommend!
