    Is it possible to Reach your genetic potential in 6 months? Sleep 2 hours per day and perform better? Lose more fat than a marathoner by bingeing? Yes, and much more.

    Overall

    This audiobook is interesting and seems to be well done. The big problem with it is the false advertising in the description, which obviously is still identical to the one used for the hardcopy book. Many of the key topics (including 2hr sleep, reverse injuries, run 50k etc.) are not covered at all. They are key components of the books description page, but are left out of the audio entirely. Lame! Shame on whoever is in charge of selling this under false pretenses. I knew the book was abridged, but shouldn't it cover the highlighted points on Audibles' description page?

    Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward - wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders - his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

    "The best WOT book yet."
    Overall

    Finally, this series is back on track. I was getting a bit tired of the last.... well... half of the series or so. I was so far invested though, I just couldn't give it up. I'm glad I didn't! Brandon Sanderson has injected some new inspiration into Robert Jordans last work. I'm not sure who deserves most of the credit for this book: Jordan or Sanderson, but I applaud both of them and hope the next two books are equal to this one. If you started this series with great hope, then got bogged down a bit in the middle, take heart, the end is shaping up to be great!

    Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspiring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems.

    Teddy says: "You see growth in the Author"
    "Not worth two credits!"
    Overall

    I enjoyed Eragon. It was fun and simple and one credit. This book is longer, with less substance. It goes on forever, and would perhaps be worth one credit, but definitely not two. I was looking forward to listening to this after my first good experience, and would consider listening to the others in the series if they were priced right. For now, I'm just angry at myself for wasting too many credits and too much time on a series that I'm loath to finish. Eldest isn't horrible, it's OK, but nothing more than OK. I've listened to plenty of OK books, but an OK book for twice the price is enough to tick me off.
