    The secret behind France's astonishingly well-behaved children is here. When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, she doesn't aspire to become a "French parent". French parenting isn't a known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insist they aren't doing anything special. But French children are far better behaved and more in command of themselves than American kids....

    Emily - Audible says: "Inspiring"
    "A excellent book for all parents"

    Would you listen to Bringing Up Bebe again? Why?

    Yes. The text is natural told, fluent, without too many scientific facts. Be aware: It's not a medic or a scientist writing about babies, it's a mother story. Brilliant.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Pamela Druckerman? Why or why not?

    Sure, her style is super amenable, intelligent and fluid.


    What about Abby Craden’s performance did you like?

    She's the best narrator that I've listened so far!French accent, intonation, punctuation, everything perfect. I will search for another titles with her as narrator.

  • Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions

    Story
    (1222)

    In a series of illuminating, often surprising experiments, MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking research, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities.

    Stephen says: "Well researched, well written, & well read"
    "I liked the book, but not the narrator."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Predictably Irrational to be better than the print version?

    No.


    Would you recommend Predictably Irrational to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes But the print version.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I didnt like the narrator. As an non-english native listener I had trouble in understanding the narrator's accent, entonation and speed of speech. I'd not recommend it to my fellows.
