    "I Laughed to Tears"

    I don't know why this hasn't gotten better reviews. I was literally crying laughing in my car, and hopefully the passersby didn't think I was crazy to be laughing so hard by myself. I do have NY Jewish family, so I saw us in the humor! I agree with another reviewer that the narration was a little shrill but I think anyone with that NY Jewish cultural influence in their family will be highly amused.

    "OK. Better as a book."

    The content is OK, but involves many lists forcing you to pay really close attention to what's going on OR listen to a barrage of "suitable:", "unsuitable:","suitable:", "unsuitable:","suitable:", "unsuitable:", etc.

    I also found the narrators voice to be a little shrill which made it difficult to listen to.

    I wish I'd have bought the book, I would have liked if much better.
