  • This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 43 mins)
    • By Carol Burnett
    • Narrated By Carol Burnett
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.

    "Pretty Good"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Recommended to folks familiar with Carol's work and the other famous people of her time in entertainment.

    Would you recommend This Time Together to your friends? Why or why not?

    Carol tells stories well and ends each one in such a way that I can hear the laugh each one evokes in the silence of my car as I listen. This book has many stories about her meeting and getting to know other famous entertainers. Interesting, but not really what I was looking for. I wish her first book, which I understand is more personal and about hear early life growing up, were available on audiobook. I have a feeling that would be more exactly the kind of story I most enjoy.

    What about Carol Burnett’s performance did you like?

    Carol is Carol. Very much a storyteller and effusive in her use of voice and intonation.

    What else would you have wanted to know about Carol Burnett’s life?

    More of the personal aspects. Not so much of the famous-connections --- though those were interesting, they only took me so far.

    Any additional comments?

    Thank you, Carol, for sharing your love and talent with us in so many ways for so many years. Many continued blessings in this life.

  • The Mindful Therapist: A Clinician's Guide to Mindsight and Neural Integration

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Daniel J. Siegel
    • Narrated By Daniel J. Siegel

    Research suggests that the presence of the therapist, and how the therapist truly forges a connection with the client in therapy, are the most crucial factors affecting the client’s healing process. An engaged, committed, caring therapist who is mindful of his or her own self - and how that self relates to the client - is the key determinant of how well that client will respond to therapy.

    What disappointed you about The Mindful Therapist?

    This book was very hard to follow as an audiobook. I think as a printed book, reading it visually, it would be somewhat easier to follow and understand his points. I also got the sense there were small but crucial diagrams in the printed book that were not available in the audio version. As a visual person, I found I really needed those. Perhaps later in the book this is not an issue .... I don't know as I wasn't able to get that far. It was impenetrable for me on audio.

    What was most disappointing about Daniel J. Siegel’s story?

    Overly complicated and very repetitive!

    How could the performance have been better?

    Have a professional voice actor/audiobook performance artist do it. Some authors can read their own stuff great, others no so much.

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

    I'm sure it does since this book was recommended to me by someone whose judgement and knowledge I trust and admire, but I couldn't get far enough into the audiobook personally to find them.
