    Models is the first book ever written on seduction as an emotional process rather than a logical one, a process of connecting with women rather than impressing them. It's the most mature and honest guide on how a man can attract women without faking behavior, without lying and without emulating others. A game-changer.

    Story

    While I’m not against an author narrating his own book, there are instances like this one when it’s just a bad idea. Not to say that this author could have done at least an adequate job if he had made an effort. Instead, what the listener is brutally subjected to is an unedited, unrehearsed and haphazard attempt at reading the text. It’s reminiscent of a junior high school student fumbling through a presentation of a just finished report, which was copied out of an encyclopedia and never really comprehended. It’s a shame, because the content has value but the delivery completely ruins even the most robust of concepts. All credibility in the material is lost when it’s coming from a source that sells such a weakly produced product. In addition to the lack of editing or proofreading, the author seemed to not even have given it a listen before releasing it for sale. The copyright and legal disclaimer at the beginning is read and for some reason explained before launching into the first section, which begins by repeating the same thing. I feel bad that the author doesn’t have a coach, advisor or even friend that could have told him of that and other mistakes. Or maybe he just doesn’t care. Expecting people to pay for something so poorly rendered is just wrong. I’ve often found that complaints regarding narrators of audiobooks were a bit petty and based mostly on certain style preferences. However, this audiobook is in an entirely new and more severe category of bad productions. I think I’m being a bit generous in giving the content a B+, the writing a C-and the narration a D-.

  • For the Love of a Dog: Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend

    Yes, humans and canines are different species, but current research provides fascinating, irrefutable evidence that what we share with our dogs is greater than how we differ. As behaviorist and zoologist Dr. Patricia McConnell tells us in this remarkable new book about emotions in dogs and in people, more and more scientists accept the premise that dogs have rich emotional lives, exhibiting a wide range of feelings, including fear, anger, surprise, sadness, and love.

    This has got to be one of the best sources for information on dog behavior. Well written and narrated, it held my interest nonstop. This contains countless explanations of dogs' actions in a scientific but easily understood manner. Though not a training manual, I found this a huge benefit to my ongoing dog obedience attempts. By providing insight and understanding at a level that I have not found elsewhere, it has been invaluable. I wish that I would have known half of this stuff two or three dogs ago. It would have saved me and them from so many avoidable situations.

    I'm a big fan of Pat Miller's dog books ( Positive Perspectives 1 & 2 ) in which she often mentions Patricia McConnell . Now I know why. Top rate information in a very humanistic (or canine-istic) and positive manner. Highly recommended for dog owner or non-owner alike. I know that my dogs are thankful for this one. Woof woof.

    In addition to Pat Miller's training books, I found "The Art Of Raising A Puppy" by The Monks of New Skete, extremely helpful.
