Conventional wisdom says that "it takes two" to turn a troubled marriage around and that both partners must have a shared commitment to change. So when couples can't agree on how - or whether - to make their marriage better, many give up or settle for a less-than-satisfying marriage (or think the only way out is divorce). Fortunately, there is an alternative. It Takes One to Tango is a groundbreaking guide that shows how one determined partner can spark lasting, significant change in a marriage.

This is exactly the book I was looking for! If you are feeling hopeless in your relationship, give this book a try. Even if your current relationship somehow does not survive after this book you will be better prepared to lie a great partner in your next relationship.

Andrew Wiggin is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony. He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony's training facilities, but instead the 12-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies.

Where does Ender in Exile rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Great book in the Ender series. Should be read between Ender's game and the Speaker for the dead.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Excellent team throughout the Ender series.

Any additional comments?

READ THIS SECOND IN THE ENDER SERIES.

Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

Would you listen to Ender's Game again? Why?

This was already a re-read and I read it twice with the audio version!

What other book might you compare Ender's Game to and why?

Unlike any book I have read, if you like space and coming of age stories, this is for you.

Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki and Harlan Ellison ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, they were excellent however.
