The info in here is laid out in a very easy-to-follow way. It is very thorough and gives you the tools to help potential sleep problems, as well as basic sleep science which helps you understand the problems. As for the narration, just speed it up by 1.25 and then it's perfectly fine.

The book has already inspired me to grow my social wealth. The advice also strikes me as moral, as it emphasizes helping others with no expectation of getting anything in return directly.

Economist Emily Oster uses the tools of economics to debunk myths about pregnancy and to empower women to make better decisions while they’re expecting. In Expecting Better, she shows that the information given to pregnant women is sometimes wrong and almost always oversimplified, and she debunks a host of standard recommendations on everything from drinking to fetal testing.

What did you love best about Expecting Better?

I love that Oster used hard evidence and fact-based view points. Her background in Economics makes her an extremely credible observer and aggregator of studies and experiments. The performance by the narrator was also excellent.

What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

It was human, but not over the top. A perfect balance of a little emotion, but not too much to distract from the fact and evidence basis of the text.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, hard to put down.

Any additional comments?

I was expecting to learn about my wife's hypothetical pregnancy. I did not expect to enjoy the read so much. Well done.

Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

What made the experience of listening to A Feast for Crows the most enjoyable?

Love the book. And Roy Dotrice's Shakespearean style has always worked wonderfully for this series.

What didn’t you like about Roy Dotrice’s performance?

But I'm driven to distraction, madness and confusion by Roy's unexplained changes to almost every main character name and voice. The other reviewers and I are not exagerating, there are far more names and voices that have been changed in this book than are consistent with the last. Obviously this won't happen, but I really wish Roy would volunteer to come back in and re-record this book, after listening to his performance of the first three.
