    Intuition is not some magical property that arises unbidden from the depths of our mind. It is a product of long hours and intelligent design, of meaningful work environments, and particular rules and principles. This audiobook shows us how we can hone our instinctive ability to know in an instant, helping us to bring out the best in our thinking and become better decision-makers in our homes, offices, and in everyday life.

    Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that placed Wishful Drinking on the New York Times bestseller list for months, Shockaholic is the juicy account of Carrie Fisher’s life, focusing more on the Star Wars years and dishing about the various Hollywood relationships she’s formed since she was chosen to play Princess Leia at only 19 years old.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a compelling listen with great warmth, sardonic humour, and cutting perceptions about a life observed.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shockaholic?

    Fisher has the art of observation nailed; of others and herself she can sum up a complex situation in a sentence. The more complex ones, in a word.


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

    The exasperation of her life predicaments.

    Charles 'Bud' Tingwell is one of Australia's most popular and respected actors. Read by Bud himself, this is a moving account of a life well lived. His career has spanned over 50 years, from glamorous post-war Hollywood, to London in the swinging 60s, to some of Australia's favourite film and stage productions.

    rosie says: "A great Aussie"
    "Bud: A bloomin' good read"
    Overall

    The generosity of Bud Tingwell is burned into Melbourne history. His acting, directing and advocacy of the Arts is part of our cultural milieu. Bud offers (in his resonate tone) in this exquisite narrative an up-close-and-personal with a truly enjoyable lilt. From his childhood memories of his grandmother's advice, "that's just people being human" through to his work with the D-generation in "Charlie the Wonder dog" and the "Castle", his warmth and his signature "good will" is in every page. If you miss Bud - this will remind you of why - and reinforce his place in your heart.
