    Most dating books are written for women - what a mistake that is. Women know how to date....It's men who need the help! At last: a blithe, bold, and bawdy guide to building a better boyfriend.

    Overall

    I couldn't stop laughing throughout this book. I listened to it while riding the metro to and from work -- I'm sure my fellow passengers thought I was nuts. The narrator, Shelly Frasier, does a superb job. It doesn't sound as though she is narrating -- it sounds as thought she is speaking to you, coaching you. Most of the advice is common sense -- but since when is common sense common?

    I wish the book were longer. As the title indicates, it is mostly about established relationships, how to improve them, how to accommodate -- but not understand -- the GF's (Girl Friend) irrational behavior (understanding is genetically impossible) and how to breakup. The authors seem to address most cases where the GF is fully committed to a relationship. I'd like to have read/heard more about how to approach woman and how to develop their interest. I believe that most women are not as appreciative of good manners as the authors claim.

    Regardless, the book is insightful, well written, superbly narrated, and well worth the time and energy to listen.

    Research scientist Dr. Marina Singh is sent to Brazil to track down her former mentor, Dr. Annick Swenson, who seems to have disappeared in the Amazon while working on an extremely valuable new drug. The last person who was sent to find her died before he could complete his mission. Plagued by trepidation, Marina embarks on an odyssey into the insect-infested jungle in hopes of finding answers to the questions about her friend's death, her company's future, and her own past.

    Overall

    While the story has some twists and turns I find them unlikely, unrealistic - totally pushing the limits of credibility. I don't want to reveal the story so I'll not discuss. The narration was excellent.
