  • Rich Dad's Increase Your Financial IQ: Get Smarter with Your Money

    For years, Robert Kiyosaki has firmly believed that the best investment one can ever make is in taking the time to truly understand how one's finances work. Too many people are much more interested in the quick-hitting scheme, or trying to find a short-cut to real wealth. Now, in this latest book in the popular Rich Dad, Poor Dad series, Kiyosaki lays out his five key principles of financial intelligence for all to understand.

    Story

    Robert Kiyosaki is an excellent author. However, I was disappointed in how much of what he said was the same thing that was in his other books. If you haven't heard the others, then you will appreciate this one more. Although repetitiveness is good when talking about such a detail oriented topic as this, there wasn't enough new information to hold my interest. I have several of his other books because even though they have much of the same information, they also have information not in his other books, as he takes different approaches. I was a little overwhelmed with information overload while hearing, "Rich Dad Poor Dad," but began to better understand as I later heard his other books. The different approaches really help.

    Other than that, I don't like the narrator for this book. He does an excellent job, but with his voice, he sounds much like a narrator who does commercials, which we all have been mentally trained to tune out. That made it more difficult for me to keep my mind focused on his words. Timothy Wheeler on the other hand, is more suited to these particular books, as he has a softer voice that seems to get into ones subconscious more. He does the narration for most of Kiyosaki's other books. You may recognize Timothy Wheeler from Graphic Audio books, if you've listened to those.

    Four people in a small Vermont village are about to have their lives inexorably intertwined by the uncertainties of love...and the apparent absolutes of gender. Can love transcend biologic imperatives, ingrained notions of sexual preference, and the outrage of a small community?

    Story

    This one kept me interested from beginning to end. I would have listened to the whole book in one sitting if I could. As a straight man, it always intrigues me that some guys undergo sexual reassignment surgery, the steps they take and why they do it. I respect anybody who isn't afraid to be who they are despite all the shallow minded people in society.

    Swedish Phase 1, Units 6-10 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation.

    Very well done. This is the absolute most effective instructional book I've ever had. I'm very pleased at the progress I've made. Once I'm done with this course, I'm going to learn another language with the Pimsleur method.

    It was an ok book. I never realized there were so many reasons for women to have sex. I MIGHT listen to it again sometime, but I doubt it.

    As women everywhere will attest, when it comes to understanding female sexuality, most guys know more about what's under the hood of a car than under the hood of a clitoris. And while it seems that men have struggled valiantly since the dawn of time to find ways to reliably elicit the female orgasm, rare is the guy who has the modesty to ask: "What do I do?" Ironically, the answer has always been right there on the tip of his tongue.

    What did you love best about She Comes First?

    The valuable information. I had to turn it off several times because it was graphic enough that the visual I got from it left me quite aroused. However, it became dull and repetitive at a certain point. It should have been made more entertaining...maybe a little humor thrown in. I know it was meant as an instructional book, but I stopped listening towards the end, as it droned on long after I got the point. On the other hand, no detail was left out. This would be perfect for a young adult with little knowledge about sex, as well as an older adult who is looking to hone their skills at pleasing the fairer sex, especially if they need help finding that elusive G-Spot.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm currently listening to "Pimsleur's Swedish" and "77 Shadow Street," by Dean Koontz


    What three words best describe Ian Kerner’s performance?

    informative, detailed, Ben Stein


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no
