    Why Good People Do Bad Things exposes the pervasive and often hidden impulses that influence our everyday decisions. The headlines are full of stories of good people gone astray. They show up on the evening news and are splashed across the weekly tabloids.

    Story

    This is a fascinating book! In college, I studied Jung's description of the shadow (the dark side) that is within all of us. But Debbie Ford makes this a contemporary and relevant listen. Each time I hear of another politician, athlete or celebrity who has self-imploded, I think "there's another one for Debbie's book!"

  • The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity: A Simple Guide to Unlimited Abundance

    Years before she became the celebrated speaker and Unity minister she is today, Edwene Gaines was raising her daughter in abject poverty. Overwhelmed and terrified, she turned toward her faith for reassurance, sustenance, and finally for direction. What seemed impossible at the time, she did anyway. She gave away 10 percent of every cent that came to her, and when her income tripled in a matter of six months, she knew it was the work of God.

    Story

    I love Edwene Gaines and hearing this book on Audible! I've read the book (it's great) then decided to listen to it---sooo fantastic! You can't not believe her and be engaged into practicing what she preaches. Her wonderful Southern drawl and her spirit of conviction make this so worth the listen. ("Eat the frog" is one of her many witty ways to make Spiritual Principles memorable.)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story

    I originally bought the book (to read) and was hooked right away. Then I decided to listen to it on Audible and I could hardly keep from crying. The story itself is both heartwarming and heartbreaking--but listening to it in their "voices" was exquisite. I have recommended it to dozens of friends.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "I love Liz Lemon--and Tina!"

    I listened to this flying across country--in coach--and never had a more enjoyable flight. Her story is great, and I loved hearing her read it with her own expressiveness. She is so funny!!
