The most successful women are often not the most talented, the most gifted, or even the most experienced. What these women have is a knack for communicating that opens doors and gives them influence. Gleaning from powerful research, best-selling author and life strategist Valorie Burton unearths practical insights you can put to work in your life immediately.

I really appreciated listening to this book. The advice was not new, but its context was closer to something that I could relate to than other self development books that I have read. I felt less like I was listening to a self-help book and more like I was having an honest conversation with an auntie or woman for whom I have great respect. I recommend this book for anyone trying to honestly become not just a more successful woman but a better woman in general. Also, although the audiobook of successful women speak differently came out first, I recommend reading successful women think differently first and then reading this one.

Annabeth is terrified. Just when she’s about to be reunited with Percy - after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera - it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. As Annabeth and her friends Jason, Piper, and Leo fly in on the Argo II, she can’t blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. With its steaming bronze dragon figurehead, Leo’s fantastical creation doesn’t appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans.

I have definitely heard some of this advice before. But some of it I have not, and I found the book as a whole, helpful. I'm hoping to find the "summary action steps" on the author's website, since I did not see a document attached to this audiobook.
His voice can be a little...how can I put this?... Grating. But not irritating. I liked it.

Austen’s classic tale of love and values in the class-conscious England of the late 18th century is her most beloved. The story follows Elizabeth Bennet, one of five sisters, as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in landed-gentry society. One of the most popular novels of all time. Has been adapted to countless variations for the screen.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book only because the narrator will make you fall asleep shortly.

What did you like best about this story?

The story itself is timeless and worth a read every now and then.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She sounds kind of like a robot. The dialogue is a little lively, but when she gets into the narration itself her voice is just dry.

Do you think Pride and Prejudice needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

Any additional comments?

I recommend looking into some other narrators for this book if you're very interested in listening to the audio version.
