Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Recommended for those seeking practical advice for maintaining a loving and respectful heterosexual relationship. There are strong beliefs about traditional gender roles.

What did you like best about this story?

There's practical advice backed up by examples of conflicts and reconciliation. I appreciated that the language was NOT too academic (i.e. boring) like how some psychology and self-development books can be.

What about Willard F. Harley’s performance did you like?

Good. Very engaging and easy to listen to.

What did you learn from His Needs, Her Needs that you would use in your daily life?

Always keep working on my relationship.

Any additional comments?

I believe that author is Christian but he does not saturate the book with Scripture references or religious references that would prevent non-Christians from understanding the principles and advice of the book. I also appreciated that the author uses simple language and everyday examples.

This volume includes: "The End of Financial Folly" by Bill Hybels: Whether Christians will tithe to God reveals much about them. "Treasure Versus Money" by Timothy J. Keller: When we hold Jesus as our treasure, we can break the power of money. "What Do You Need to Be Happy?" by Francis Chan: When we give everything to Christ, we discover the secret of being content. "Miriam, Aaron, and the Green-Eyed Monster" by Nancy Beach: We often think of envy as a "petty" sin, but God clearly shows his anger about envy in this story.

  • The Introvert Advantage

  • How to Thrive in an Extrovert World
  • By: Marti Olsen Laney PsyD
  • Narrated by: Tamara Marston
  • Length: 10 hrs and 25 mins

The Introvert Advantage dispels common myths about introverts - they’re not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial - and explains how they are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation such as chitchat, phone calls, parties, or office meetings can easily become "too much". Most importantly, it thoroughly refutes many introverts’ belief that something is wrong with them. Instead, it helps them recognize their inner strengths - their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration.

Concepts and use of examples are really interesting. However, the narrator repeatedly put me to sleep with her monotone voice.

If you could sum up The Birth Order Book in three words, what would they be?

Insightful, practical, entertaining

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Practical relationship and communication advice between people of different birth orders. Very insightful generalisations about people's character based upon their birth order. The author draws from personal reflections to illustrate his theory.
