    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.

    "Written for Women to Enjoy"
    Overall

    While the author tries to connect with guys by throwing in references to Star Trek or Power tools, everything comes across as patronizing. The entire book reads as condescending towards guys, and the overall theme is "girls are crazy, get over it and listen to everything they tell you to do, if you wanna get sex." Probably funny to women, but is kinda insulting to males. The men she describes in this book are the kind who will never read/listen to this type of book, so what's the point?

    Guerilla Marketing is absolutely invaluable to the kind of entrepreneurs the web environment is creating in all of us: whether you're an author trying to promote your books, an eBay seller marketing handmade crafts, or a coffee shop owner wanting to attract local foot-traffic, you'll find plenty of guidance to turn you into a more savvy businessperson and marketer.

    Taught be a bunch of stuff I didn't quite have a handle on, but the re-reads that didn't get edited out, are quite annoying.

  • Freakonomics: Revised Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 55 mins)
    • By Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner

    Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life, from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing, and whose conclusions turn the conventional wisdom on its head. Thus the new field of study contained in this audiobook: Freakonomics. Levitt and co-author Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives: how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

    Shackleton says: "Good, but be careful"
    "Can't say I agree with everything"
    Overall

    But I think it's a great book to change your manners of thinking. It's definitely a book about cause and effects. Not as mind blowing as I've heard though.

    We all want to have our message heard. In Bang! Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval tell us how. They and their talented colleagues are the brains behind a host of memorable and highly successful ads, from the enormously successful AFLAC duck to the irresistibly sentimental "Kodak moment" to Herbal Essences' outrageous "Totally Organic Experience." Kaplan Thaler and Koval offer savvy advice and proven strategies for getting out a loud, clear, attention-grabbing message about any product or service.

    Daniel Henage says: "What a disappointment!"
    "pretty good, I enjoyed it"
    Overall

    Definitely a great book and I got some good info outta it. She makes a good effort to be funny and entertaining. Though it's very apparently her target for this book is the fairer sex. Many times I rolled my eyes.
