    Esther Perel takes on tough questions, grappling with the obstacles and anxieties that arise when our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion. She invites us to explore the paradoxical union of domesticity and sexual desire, and explains what it takes to bring lust home.

    Grant says: "Intimacy is in the eye of the beholder."
    "Professional gossip"
    Overall

    Just don't even bother unless you like long winded professional gossip. I suppose the biggest drawback with me is that Ms. Perel narrated this as well. She doesn't leave you with anything more than a clinican's view of her client's problems who seem to have bigger problems than their sexual disfunctions.

    I gave this four and one half hours. I won't do it again.

    This provocative book has found renewed popularity in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks: Is this the onset of the Crisis - the Fourth Turning - of which the authors predict? Hear it and decide for yourself. An audible.com audio exclusive.

    Robert says: "Explanation of generational interaction"
    "The Fourth Boring"
    Overall

    This is the worst audio book that I have heard to date. A complete pontification summed up into a sort of ... well... nothing.

    If you like skipping through material just to say you read (or heard in this case) something really bad.... here's you opportunity.

    Reading the calorie count on a can of vegetables .... would be of higher order and greater value.

    This thought-provoking journal of a man's quest for truth - and for himself - has touched and changed an entire generation, and is ready to reach out to a new one. At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a motorcycle trip across America. But this is not a simple trip at all, for around every corner, their pilgrimage leads them to new vistas of self-discovery and renewal.

    CARL V PHILLIPS says: "definitive version, hasn't aged too badly"
    "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance"
    Overall

    Without a doubt, the best audio book, any book, that I have had the pleasure to listen to .... again and again.

    Go ahead! Get the audio version and regain the insight of Quality living!
