Kevin Engle has been entertaining people for 10 years with his “Engle’s Angle” column and its humorous look at our everyday lives. In The Best of Engle’s Angle, a collection of more than 100 favorites, you’ll know why he doesn’t want to shake hands with people in church. Plus, meet a dentist who does play-by-play commentary while checking your teeth, and watch out for office coworkers when there’s free food.

I had a great time with this book. Even though I'm not American, I could identify myself with some of the characters, situations and pet peeves. The first part was definitely hilarious! The second part, on the other hand, was more on a low note. I wish I had listened to the second part first.

If only the word "crucial" wasn't repeated so much, I'd almost feel like leaving everything behind is a good idea. Despite this, I believe the book provides all the information you need (bad and good) to start your lifelong RV journey.

The mark of the very best players is that they have the mental toughness to overcome moments of adversity. To accept that there are times when matters do not pan out as they hope, and having accepted them, move on without allowing their confidence to drop. Call it resilience, spirit, mental strength or whatever, without a doubt such a mindset is as crucial as having the skills to play at the level to which we aspire.

It's so short and sweet I got through the book in one sitting. You can listen to it before you go shopping or while you're decluttering your wardrobe and apply every single tip as you go. It would be awesome if every chapter had a title so you can jump straight to the advice that you need.

Since I've already listened to many audiobooks on the same or similar topics, my opinion might be biased or I just grew tired of it altogether. I honestly couldn't find the difference between minimalism, hygge, lagom, and Marie Kondo's books. This audiobook goes by the same principles as the others I mentioned. My advice: read the book's blurbs, check the ratings, and take your pick.

If you want to learn Italian in a fun and entertaining way, then keep reading.... The truth is...the traditional classroom-style method used to learn a foreign language isn’t really that good. Memorizing dozens (or even hundreds) of grammar rules it’s hard, and remembering them while you’re in an actual conversation is even harder. But think about it. How did you learn your first language? Did someone give you a grammar book while you were still in the baby cradle? Or did you learn to speak by simply listening to others?

This is definitely the kind of audiobook which will help you learn. It's nothing like the long random list of words and their boring definitions. The first 7 chapters of the book give you useful tips on how to make the most out of these short stories. For some people, this might be a bit of a drag, but as a language teacher, I urge you to listen to them. The rest of the book has 6 sections: 1. The story itself, 2. A summary in Italian, 3. A listening comprehension exercise, 4. the answer key, 5. the summary in English, and 6. the vocabulary. Best of all, the book comes with a pdf with all the content of the book. So if you missed something, or you just want to listen and repeat or even memorize the stories, you will be able to do it. Great stuff!
