    Life can be pretty tricky when you're a teenage girl. New things matter: Clothes. Parties. Boys. Suddenly being liked and being popular don't mean the same thing. Your parents get completely bizarre when the subject of dating comes up. A friend you've had forever stabs you in the back for no good reason. Everybody you know seems to feel free to comment on your constantly changing body.

    "Practical advice to religious sermon"
    Overall

    This book starts out very well. Philip Van Munching makes some great points and interesting observations. Then he begins to drop famous names and explain his own religious journey and biases in detail. It is clear that this author grew up in the Catholic or similar church and has a bone to pick with anyone who has strong religious beliefs. The last couple of chapters strongly advocate an "everyone is god" and "there is no absolute truth" viewpoint, and the way that Van Munching applies stereotypical labels to people with certain religious views is very out-of-place in a book intended for large audiences. This book that starts out with objective, practical advice for girls and ends with very subjective views on religion.

  • The New Buffettology: Warren Buffett's Proven Techniques for Investing Successfully in Changing Markets

    If you listened to the original Buffettology, you know exactly half of what you need to know to effectively apply Warren Buffett's investment strategies. The New Buffettology guides listeners through opportunity-rich bear markets, and step-by-step through Buffett's own investment process.

    Charles says: "Pathetic; a disgrace to Buffet"
    "Great explanation..."
    Overall

    This book explains stock investing in a way that makes sense with practical examples. Good for the pro and great for the beginner!

    He is the scourge of Stupid White Men everywhere. He's taken on fat cats, gun nuts, lying politicians. The Guardian describes him as "a wake-up call, a kick in the mental backside." And now, Michael Moore is back, daring to ask the most urgent question of these perilous times: Dude, Where's My Country?

    CARL V PHILLIPS says: "I am politically to the left - this is just bad"
    "Dude, where's your brain?"
    Overall

    Hypocritical, ignorant, and clearly biased, Michael Moore represents the sort of senseless "Dude, where's my car?" mentality that the left finds so appealing. Mindless hatred and intolerance of any opposing view, this is classic liberalism. I highly recommend this book to everyone who thinks that "loud, angry" chaos rather than logical, knowledgeable debate is what democracy and freedom of speech is all about. Kudos to Mr. Moore at his ability to con a buck or two from the "elites" of our society. Michael Moore, King of Pandering to the ultra-left.

    Ever wonder where houseflies go in the winter, why dogs walk in circles before lying down, or how they keep raisins from falling to the bottom of cereal boxes? David Feldman answers these and many more of life's seemingly silly mysteries that don't mean much until you start thinking about them!

    Overall

    There are three people, A, B, and C, who each give their "bluff" which could be the right answer. When it's all done and said, good luck remembering the real answer. For the money, it should have been a *lot* longer.

    In addition, A, B, and C each give each other a hard time as though they each have the right answer and are truly playing a "game." It's obviously contrived, sarcastic, quite annoying, and wastes time.

    The information would have been quite interesting on its own without all of the fluff.

    One of the worst audio books I have ever heard.
