    What is your true purpose in life? What do women really want? What makes a good lover? If you're a man reading this, you've undoubtedly asked yourself these questions, but you may not have had much luck answering them. Until now.

    "A deep book"
    Overall

    At first I was like "huh"? After listening to it a few times, it's made sense. He's assuming your level of understanding of the world is similar to his.

    Once I figured out his assumptions, the book was easier to digest. If you don't have time to put into listening and thinking deeply about what he is saying, then move on.

    If you found this material interesting you should look at David DeAngleo and/or Hypnotica.

    The Empire stands at the brink of total collapse. But they have saved their most heinous plan for last. First a plot is hatched that could destroy the New Republic in a bloodbath of genocide and civil war. Then comes the shocking news that Grand Admiral Thrawn--the most cunning and ruthless warlord in history--has apparently returned from the dead to lead the Empire to a long-prophesied victory.

    Suspended helplessly between life and death, Luke Skywalker lies in state at the Jedi academy. But on the spirit plane, Luke fights desperately for survival, reaching out physically to the Jedi twins. At the same time, Leia is on a life-and-death mission of her own, a race against Imperial agents hoping to destroy a third Jedi child, Leia and Han's baby Anakin, hidden on the planet Anoth.

    Story

    The story is ok, the abridged version jumps around a bit. The unabridged version might be better.

    The narrator is mediocre. He does not pronounce names correctly. At times he speaks almost too fast to understand him, other times he's on the verge of slurring his words. Some dialog is said with the wrong personality and character which comes across as odd.

    The overall quality of the narration is marginal. Getting past the above mentioned issues, the book is understandable and is easy to follow.
