  • Raise Your Social I.Q.: How to Do the Right Thing in Any Situation

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 18 mins)
    • By Michael Levine
    • Narrated By Mary Woods

    In this modern, stress-filled time, people face many awkward situations: the dating scene with all its pitfalls; friends going through grief and loss; job difficulties and other personal problems; the woes of love, friendship, and profession. To avoid gaffes and goofs and other embarrassments, we need to bring our social I.Q. into the 21st century. This book defines manners and etiquette for how we live today and shows readers how to keep their mouths foot-free.

    James says: "Common Sense Etiquette"
    "Best for a young single person"

    Too many references to things that pertain to single life. Otherwise, somewhat informative.

  • Overcoming Shyness and Social Anxiety: How to Boost Your Social Confidence

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 25 mins)
    • By Ruth Searle
    • Narrated By Bob Sinfield

    The number of people with some form of shyness has increased, and research now suggests that up to 50% of people experience it. Many of these are ""shy extroverts"" - people who are publicly outgoing, but privately experience painful thoughts or feelings. Social phobia, the more chronic form of shyness, is now thought to affect about 13% of people. People who are shy are also at increased risk of depression and anxiety.

    Where does Overcoming Shyness and Social Anxiety rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    How could the performance have been better?

    The "s"s were so harsh I thought my hearing would suffer from listening. My ear actually hurt.

  • The Moral Animal: Why We Are the Way We Are: The New Science of Evolutionary Psychology

    • UNABRIDGED (16 hrs and 36 mins)
    • By Robert Wright
    • Narrated By Greg Thornton
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Are men literally born to cheat? Does monogamy actually serve women's interests? These are among the questions that have made The Moral Animal one of the most provocative science books in recent years. Wright unveils the genetic strategies behind everything from our sexual preferences to our office politics - as well as their implications for our moral codes and public policies.

    Darwin8u says: "A Masterpiece of Science Writing"
    "A story of Darwin"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The title

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Didn't really want to hear about Darwin's life, but forced to to get thru the book for tidbits of interesting info

    Could you see The Moral Animal being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    not at all

    Any additional comments?

    This book seemed more about the life of Darwin than anything else.

    In her groundbreaking and utterly liberating new book, Debra Ollivier goes beyond familiar ooh-la-la stereotypes about French women, challenging cherished notions about sex, love, dating, marriage, motherhood, raising children, body politics, seduction, and flirtation. What French Women Know debunks long-standing myths and offers savvy new thinking from an old sexy culture.

    Benedict says: "Now I know what French women know"
    What would have made What French Women Know better?

    Not sure what the author intened in this book, but I think I don't like French people now...

    Would you ever listen to anything by Debra Ollivier again?

    probably not

    Which character – as performed by Debra Ollivier – was your favorite?


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    are the French really that liberal?

    Any additional comments?
