  • Without Conscience: The Disturbing World of the Psychopaths Among Us

    Most people are both repelled and intrigued by the images of cold-blooded, conscienceless murderers that increasingly populate our movies, television programs, and newspaper headlines. With their flagrant criminal violation of society's rules, serial killers like Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy are among the most dramatic examples of the psychopath. Individuals with this personality disorder are fully aware of the consequences of their actions and know the difference between right and wrong....

    Story

    This was an interesting and informative read however it seemed like the author was scare mongering at points. His theory that young people were more likely to be phycopaths was based on opinion rather than fact and I personally discount this idea on due tomy own observation that the last generation has always lemented the ruin of society in the next. More media reports does not infact indicate a rise in actual crime. I recommend it but keep your sceptical mind on... as with anything.

    Dr. Brian Weiss is a highly respected psychiatrist from the mainstream of the medical establishment. Catherine is one of his most difficult cases, a 27-year-old woman racked by phobias and anxieties. In the course of Catherine's treatment, Dr. Weiss makes a startling discovery. Under hypnosis, she recollects, in vivid detail, events from past lives ranging from the prehistoric times and ancient Egypt to the 20th century and the fires of World War II.

    Rebecca Reed says: "Many Lives, Many Masters"
    "Completely baseless rubbish."

    Would you try another book from Brian L. Weiss and/or Brian L. Weiss?

    No, I completely lost respect for anything this man has to say. He has shown himself to be utterly irrational and someone who does not understand scientific method or the way the human mind works, which is honestly a little scary.


    What three words best describe Brian L. Weiss’s voice?

    Useless memory manipulation.


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

    This book is a great reminder that people who get a book deal don't nessisarily have anything useful to say.


    Any additional comments?

    The stories in this book are not only unscientific but also unethical.

    When you think of what it will take to clean your house, are you so overwhelmed you throw up your hands and cry, "It's all too much"? If somewhere along the way you've simply lost the ability to keep your home organized and clutter-free, then It's All Too Much has the solution you've been searching for.

    My house became more organised as I listened to this audiobook. I listened to it three times in a row as it is so compassionately writen and interesting to listen to, allowing the listener to dream about how they want to live to live in a space. For a book about cleaning up and decluttering it really held my attention and did the job... and trust me I am not someone who would usually listen to anything of this genre.

    Being a parent is usually all about giving of yourself to foster your child's growth and development. But what happens when this isn't the case? Some parents dismiss the needs of their children, asserting their own instead, demanding attention and reassurance from even very young children. This may especially be the case when a parent has narcissistic tendencies or narcissistic personality disorder.

    Although the content is really helpful and well thought out the way it is written is dull and requires you to do alot of paper work. I prefer a format that delivers the message through story/case study and places less emphasis on questionaires. However the content truely is helpful and good to work through. Ok Naration.

    You've probably seen it before: a human brain dramatically lit from the side, the camera circling it like a helicopter shot of Stonehenge, and a modulated baritone voice exalting the brain's elegant design in reverent tones... to which this book says: Pure nonsense.

    Full of great information about the mind presented in a dull way. Not personaly insightfull and alot of overlapping information with more interestly written books. No outstanding insight beyond what has already been written.

    They number in the millions and they are incredibly important to families and to our society, yet they are underappreciated, little respected, and even controversial. Who are they? They are the stay-at-home moms. In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms is a special book, a profound and unique understanding of how important it is for mothers to raise their own children.

    Doctor laura is straight forward, opinionated and humerous. Her voice is great to listen to- very expressive and interesting and the content is interesting and helpfull. After reading this book I am now a big dr laura fan and have listened to everything I could get my ears on. A great reminder for women who are (or want to be) full time mothers and the families that support them that what they do is important, valuble and can not be replaced!

    The good news is Jennifer Traig does not have lupus, multiple sclerosis, Huntington's disease, Crohn's disease, or muscular dystrophy. She discovers that she does not have SUDS, the mysterious disorder that claims healthy young Asian men in their sleep, nor does she have Foreign Accent Syndrome, the bizarre but real neurological condition that transforms native West Virginians into Eliza Doolittle overnight. What she does have is hypochondria.

    Jennifer says: "Was a waste of my aubible credit"
    "Funny and interesting."
    Overall

    This book is well narrated and easy to listen to. Informative and interesting as well as funny, the subject surprisingly entertaining. Highly recommended for people who like non-fiction that teaches and entertains.
