    A smart and funny book by a prominent Harvard psychologist, which uses groundbreaking research and (often hilarious) anecdotes to show us why we're so lousy at predicting what will make us happy, and what we can do about it.

    Terril Lowe says: "Great Book!"
    "really interesting and engrossing"
    Overall

    This was really a very interesting and thought provoking book. The author has a great speaking voice and the content was both engrossing and humorous.

    I highly recommend it.

    Annabelle is tired of being the lone failure in a family of overachievers. She's endured dead-end jobs and a broken engagement. But that's going to change now that she's taken over her late grandmother's matchmaking business. All Annabelle has to do is land the Windy City's hottest bachelor as her client, and she'll be the most sought-after matchmaker in town.

    Daniela says: "Guilty Pleasure"
    "Narrators voice almost ruined it"
    Overall

    I really liked the story, once it got going, but the narrator was pretty painful to listen to. Many of the characters in this audiobook are football players and the narrator is not at all good at doing male voices. She should stick to primary female voices.

    To better understand the inner workings of our bodies and to trace the origins of many of today's most common diseases, we have to turn to unexpected sources: worms, flies, and even fish.

    Aryn says: "Be entertained and educated"
    "Seemed like Evolution for Dummies"
    Overall

    I was really disapointed by this book. It has an interesting premise, but is really much too simple. There isn't much of any new information in it for anyone who has ever read an article or seen a documentary on evolution. It was just very simplistic and boring despite the good intro.

    You can go after the job you want...and get it! You can take the job you have...and improve it! You can take any situation you're in...and make it work for you!

    Ralph says: "This is well worth listening too! Main points are."
    "Best business / career book I have read"
    Overall

    I think this audio book was terrific. It is much better than the title suggests - really a classic. Very pragmatic and powerful. Additionally, the speaker had a great voice to listen to.

  • Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

    Story
    (2092)

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

    Reney says: "Be careful with logical leaps"
    "Quick & interesting"
    Overall

    This audio book has lot of uniquely interesting points. It isn't tightly written and gets off topic more than once, but it is quite entertaining and thought-provoking if you give the overall themes and interesting studies some thought.

  • The Moonstone

    No, the "Moonstone" isn't a celestial relic, it's a gigantic yellow diamond of unearthly beauty that was given to Rachel Verinder as a present on her 18th birthday - and stolen that very night! Betteredge, one of the most beloved butlers in English literature, is the focus of this seminal detective novel, which examines how one family's life is turned upside-down by the theft. And find out why the answers to all of life's problems can be found in the pages of Robinson Crusoe.

    Catherine says: "One of the best readings ever"
    "Long, but good"
    Overall

    If you are not used to listening to a book of this genre or time, this can seem very long and drawn out. However, the story is very interesting and hooks you in quickly. The narrators do a great job and the characters feel complete and real. Overall - a great example of its type and I do recommend it.
