    Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking audiobook, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory - the most advanced relationship science in existence today - can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many best-selling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships - until now.

    Would you listen to Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find - and Keep - Love again? Why?

    I do think I will listen to this again, as it's an audio book, there are some parts of this book that could use a 'review'. Might listen to it with my love as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it comes from a matter of fact/scientific viewpoint on how and why our relationships work & don't work.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not so much 'scenes' in this book as it's nonfiction, the talk about the evolutionary benefits our ancestors gained from 'pair-bonding' (for lack of a better term) was interesting and makes perfect sense.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is useful for single people, people in a relationship and I could say that it may be helpful for those that are having a struggle or strain in their current relationship.

    A !BIG! Thanks to Amir & Rachel for their awesome book on attachment/relationships!

  • The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever

    • ABRIDGED (10 hrs and 43 mins)
    • By Christopher Hitchens
    • Narrated By Nicholas Ball

    Christopher Hitchens continues to make the case for a splendidly godless universe in this first-ever gathering of the influential voices past and present that have shaped his side of the current (and raging) God/no-god debate. With Hitchens as your erudite and witty guide, you'll be led through a wealth of philosophy, literature, and scientific inquiry, including generous portions of the words of Lucretius, Benedict de Spinoza, Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Mark Twain, and more.

    Oskar E. Boethius Lissheim says: "Hitchens' Heroes"
    "Narration seemed a little, off?"

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

    Maybe, it would depend on if they were already a fan of audio-books. I have enjoyed a couple others by Hitchens that he narrated. But Nicholas Balls reading, to me, seemed a little detached from the subject matter. I understand that the process needs to be completed as quickly as possible but, again I didn't feel as engaged due to the 'peppiness' the book was read with.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicholas Ball’s performances?

    Probably not.
