    I promise you this, if you read this book and apply it's principles, you will have so much more success with women. Imagine, all of the cash you are leaving on the table by not understanding how to get what you want! Imagine, all of those dates, with so many hot girls that you didn't go on simply because you couldn't text right! Seriously, texting incorrectly can crush your chances with women permanently. I can't tell you how many women have vented to me their frustrations at what you are doing.

    What would have made TextAppeal for Guys! better?

    The author writes this book toward someone with little or no experience using text messaging technology. He gives an example of an elderly woman who makes a comment about not understanding why people send text messages. That woman should be this author's target audience. EVERYONE ELSE SHOULD NOT WASTE THEIR MONEY. Case in point; The author makes a point of emphasizing to the reader that a text message does not need to be responded to immediately. Really? Who knew? And here I've been jumping at the sound of every text message that I get, even running out of movie theaters, responding to text messages because I thought that they had to be responded to immediately!!! Seriously, unless if you are less than 5 years old, or more than 75 years old, stay away from this waste of time.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Masters again?

    Probably not.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I don't know because I couldn't make it through the entire book. The first 30 minutes were so absurdly stupid that I just couldn't take anymore.

    Cyberspace is the 21st century’s greatest engine of change. Telecommunications, commercial and financial systems, government operations, food production - virtually every aspect of global civilization now depends on interconnected cyber systems to operate; systems that have helped advance medicine, streamline everyday commerce, and so much more.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is oriented around the legal and policy questions that are emerging from the information age that we are living in. In my opinion it will be of more interest to legal scholars and policy makers, than to readers interested in the 0's and 1's of cyber security. That withstanding, I think this lecture series is very well suited for the legal audience as the author presents the material in a very clear and understandable manner, without much technical jargon.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    What didn’t you like about Stefan Rudnicki and Harlan Ellison ’s performance?

    I wish that the different readers would have only read specific characters, and remained as the readers for those characters. As the book stands, the readers switch off reading for multiple characters, and there did not seem to be any consistency or logic for why or when they switched. Confusing, and maybe a little over performed.

    Forty million people in the US have tried Internet dating, which means 40 million people have probably gone on some pretty crappy dates. Not a Match: My True Tales of Online Dating Disasters is about one guy who experienced more than his fair share. Brian Donovan, a writer and comedian whose work has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, NPR, and Chapelle's Show, has been on over 100 Internet dates in a genuine search for love and happiness.

    If you could sum up Not a Match in three words, what would they be?

    I highly recommend for anyone considering online dating. The story about the woman providing advice on where to buy good heroin is priceless.
