Long winded .... It just droned on and on .... It was like Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller's day off ..... not to say the reader was doing a bad job... It was just a bad book ... YAWN
I Match so I could burn it. ( Yes I know it was on Audio )
Hey Guys if you want to go to Douchebag University this is the book that will help you on your way. After picking up the book run on down to the Hummer Store and get yourself one of those big cars and start smoking cigars. This Author and Narrator come off as mega over confident. Google Zapp Brannigan from Futurama if you don't know the TV show and you will get an idea of what this book is about.
A Better narrator,
NO I am sure there are some good books on the subject out there
She tries to pull off this sexy voice that comes off condescending. New York Snob meets porn star.
I was really looking forward to this book. Unfortunately the narrator was trying to sound sexy and it came off as annoying. I got through the first case study but it was filled with what I call filler and then the book goes off into her personal life. The book and author also had that upper Manhattan condescending tone like she was talking to all of us little people. I think the book might have some interesting case studies but I could not get through it.
If they would have gotten to the point. First lesson stop calling your spouse by pet names. they spent about 45-60 mins on this subject. OK I GET IT MOVE ON!
The Info was good but just over written? Like someone had a term paper that was suppose to be 500 pages long so they added filler.
I basically would listen to the rule in the beginning of the chapter and then fast forward about about 15 min to the next chapter.
I think anyone on the far left would love it and anyone on the far right would hate it. I was hoping for some real substance but as other reviews state the books is about 20% about human sexuality and 80% bashing any other view other then their own. Big Business is evil, The catholic church and other Christians are evil, Men are evil because they hold most of the wealth in the country, and even fox news makes it into the book.
I don't want to sound like a right wing wack job because I am much more liberal when it comes to social issues. This book is just crappy.
Slow Sex was great by Nicole Daedone, The next book is Sex & God :) hope that is better
Showing us how to change our own habit behavior.
I purchased this book so that I could see about changing my own habits. This book drones on with example after example of how habits are formed but really says nothing about changing them. This book reads like someone thesis project in college including adding extra text to make the book thicker. Examples that could be written in about a paragraph go on and one for ever. Case studies that are 45 mins long just to make one small example.
I usually force myself to listen to a book all the way through. I was about 75% done with this book when I just had to stop listening. I found myself in traffic yelling "Get on with it" and "ok I get the concept" I picked a few useful ideas up but it could have been a small informational flyer and not a book.
I could listen to it in the car, plane, office....
The whole concept of WHY
Its a good Listen / Read
