Esther Perel takes on tough questions, grappling with the obstacles and anxieties that arise when our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion. She invites us to explore the paradoxical union of domesticity and sexual desire, and explains what it takes to bring lust home.
I'd recommend this for anyone who is part of a couple, was part of a couple, or wants to be part of a couple again. Talks about a lot of perspectives and breaks erotic issues down in a helpful way that I don't think most of our cultures encourage us to think about otherwise. I will be buying more books by this author for sure!
[Contains Mature Themes] Free for a limited time to Audible members. They’ve been together for more than a decade, but this isn’t the first time they’ve separated. Stuck in a cycle of explosive escalations, a husband and wife want to make it work but can’t break their habit of going for the emotional jugular. Esther encourages them to start their conversations differently.
I didn't enjoy the couple's story as much as some of the others, but the author's commentary on things she wished in retrospect that she had done differently was very interesting!
[Contains mature themes] Free for a limited time to Audible members.

Following his recovery, he’s adapting to new physical limitations, while she says the children bear the brunt of his frustrations. Esther coaches them through an honest conversation on anger, parenthood and the power of apology.
A must for parents at war over discipline. I will be listening to this one again!!!
Most children are afraid of the dark. Some fear monsters under the bed. But 10 percent of children have excessive fears and worries - phobias, separation anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive disorder - that can hold them back and keep them from fully enjoying childhood. If your child suffers from any of these forms of anxiety, the program in this book offers practical, scientifically proven tools that can help.
The title doesn't imply this but it's half about teaching kids social skills - super helpful!!!!

As passionate as it is profound, Atlas Shrugged is one of the most influential novels of our time. In it, Rand dramatizes the main tenets of objectivism, her philosophy of rational selfishness. She explores the ramifications of her radical thinking in a world that penalizes human intelligence and integrity.
The narrator was easy to understand and engaging (despite some of the characters changing accents throughout the story!). Oh well - small complaint for a big book. Kept me awake on long drives and I didn't miss most of what was left out from the novel.
CBT is a hugely popular self help technique, which teaches you how to break free from destructive or negative behaviours and make positive changes to both your thoughts and actions. This audiobook contains an effective and sympathetic introduction to this NHS-endorsed therapeutic treatment; the latest advice on how CBT can help with anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder; help with identifying unhealthy modes of thinking.
Easy to understand and apply. Narrator is British but interesting. Great book, right to the point!
