  • Nice Girls Don't Live Forever: Jane Jameson, Book 3

    Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson's sexy sire Gabriel has always been unpredictable, but the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow -- alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.

    What did you like best about Nice Girls Don't Live Forever? What did you like least?

    I find it hard to critique this book, to me it's a fluff book. Not something to be taken to seriously. It was an enjoyable light listen the narrator is good. Story is predictable but I enjoyed the series up to this point. I don't see the need to buy the next books because I'm not attached to the characters. But it wasn't bad for what it is.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    eh


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    she does a good job of giving the characters more heart


    Was Nice Girls Don't Live Forever worth the listening time?

    so so

    Parenting is not about kids, it's about parents. If you're not in control, then you cannot be in charge. What every kid really needs are parents who are able to keep their cool no matter what. Easier said than done? Not anymore, thanks to ScreamFree Parenting, the principle-based approach that's inspiring parents everywhere to truly revolutionize their family dynamics.

    Overall

    I did not agree with everything but all in all it's been a great help. As a mother of 2 children under 4 I found myself losing my temper all the time. And when I went to bed at night I'd berate myself for the way i had let things get out of hand. Since I've listened to this book I haven found my calm. I have begun( it's not easy for a Mom to do) put myself & my marriage first. And have seen a change begin to happen in my kids. It's not an overnight change but it's working. And I feel like a better Mom.

    Today's parents have been sold a bill of goods on so-called "quality time." They've been led to believe that children require constant attention. Psychologist John Rosemond knows that being a good parent is really about helping children get out of their lives! His easy-to-follow plan will start parents and children on the road to happiness and self-esteem.

    Overall

    As an educated woman, stay at home wife & mother I am extremely offended by this mans views of women & family. Don't waste your time or money on this book!

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"
    "Very interesting"
    Overall

    I loved this book! Gladwell toches a lot of subjects that you've thought of & gives you new ways to look at them. Making you question things you took for truth. I have recommended this book to many of my friends & will continue to do so.
