By looking at what separates the extremely successful from the rest of us, we learn what we can do to be more like them - and find out, in some cases, why it's good that we aren't. Barking up the Wrong Tree draws on startling statistics and surprising anecdotes to help you understand what works and what doesn't, so you can stop guessing at success and start living the life you want.

Easy narrator to listen to.
The book is a little lengthy but the summary at the end ties it all together.

Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking audiobook, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory - the most advanced relationship science in existence today - can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many best-selling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships - until now.

Here are proven methods for building an online income stream. Maybe you dream of making money with an online business, but haven’t tried so far because you’d have to quit your current job and enter the risky world of Internet startups. Or because you think you need lots of capital and way too much time. If these reasons sound familiar, Dave Lindahl and Jon Rozek beg to differ.

Next month, when you're getting a steady flow of cash into your PayPal account, enjoying a fresh influx of passive income and enjoying the freedom that comes with it, you're going to look back at starting this audiobook and thank yourself, not me. And that's good, because I don't deserve a lick of credit for your hard work. I didn't invent affiliate marketing, I didn't come to your house and look over your shoulder and force you to get it done. I didn't even give you any seed money.

The number of people with some form of shyness has increased, and research now suggests that up to 50% of people experience it. Many of these are ""shy extroverts"" - people who are publicly outgoing, but privately experience painful thoughts or feelings. Social phobia, the more chronic form of shyness, is now thought to affect about 13% of people. People who are shy are also at increased risk of depression and anxiety.

Are men literally born to cheat? Does monogamy actually serve women's interests? These are among the questions that have made The Moral Animal one of the most provocative science books in recent years. Wright unveils the genetic strategies behind everything from our sexual preferences to our office politics - as well as their implications for our moral codes and public policies.

Didn't really want to hear about Darwin's life, but forced to to get thru the book for tidbits of interesting info

Could you see The Moral Animal being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Any additional comments?

This book seemed more about the life of Darwin than anything else.

What French Women Know debunks long-standing myths and offers savvy new thinking from an old sexy culture.
