Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib.

While I really appreciate the attempt at BDSM educational material, I just think it falls short on accomplishing the stated purpose in the title. It is a great primer, but I was sort of expecting more detail and perhaps an example method used by Mistress Dede. It's good. just not what I expected.

This book has decent information, but it sounds like it was written by someone who doesnt know how to edit. Also, would rely appreciate it if they decoupled sex and BDSM instead of saying BDSM sex 60 times in one chapter.

With this audiobook, you’ll be able to understand BDSM for what it is, not just as something that’s been discussed in 50 Shades of Grey, but realistic, actual understanding of this subject. There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding BDSM and kink culture, and sometimes, it’s hard to find the truth, and what you should and shouldn’t be doing. But, you’re in luck, for this audiobook will tell you everything you need to know about BDSM, and how to pleasure your partner.

Seems like there were a lot of grammatical issues making it hard to read for the performer, but the actual context was pretty much in par with what should be expected from a book like this.

the advise is good. the style is not bad, but the constant comments that the author was preaching to "millennials" got really obnoxious because it was true. she is pandering to an audience rather than just writing useful material. the material is good, but it was heavily inflated by an entire chapter at the end that had nothing important to say about finance. overall, very good, but that last chapter could have been about 40% shorter and less gender focused.

‘It was a sweet finish after the bitter pills of floggings and bullets with which these same governments, just at that time, dosed the German working-class risings’. The Communist Manifesto is, perhaps surprisingly, a most engaging and accessible work, containing even the odd shaft of humour in this translation by Samuel Moore for the 1888 English edition.

Marx literally claims that there is no reason to think communism will work inside this book and thatbit is based on no principles and then goes on to try to use principles to justify his claims. what a pile of trash.

This brilliantly conceived book is based on a lecture course given by Dr. Leonard Peikoff in 1976 entitled, "The Philosophy of Objectivism". The lectures were attended by Ayn Rand, who helped prepare them and who also joined Peikoff in answering questions.

Rand's philosophy, compiled by Peikoff seeks to explain reality as it is and does so from nothing. The logic is perfection. The form; well reasoned. She is able to cleanly establish the moral imperative to allow the individual optimal freedoms that they may be free to create advancements that guide man to their optimal flourishing. Basically, she is as right as it is possible to be given then knowledge that we have about reality. Additionally, the narration made it easy to follow and engaging even though material with this formal a structure is often drab. Peikoff's compilation makes the logical steps from "I am a being which thinks living in a knowable world" to the ramifications of this statement, that man's greatest purpose is his own flourishing. It was an excellent piece and I recommend this book for everyone, but especially those who cannot see why freedom and the free exchange of goods is necessary for a successful society.
