What did you love best about Free: The Legend of Drizzt: The Collected Stories?

Felicia Day and Wheaton did a fantastic job. I was most surprised and disappointed by Ice T (still going with that name, huh?) who can't pronounce "sword" and David Duchovny who couldn't be bothered to infuse a little personality.

A sleazy motel, burrowed on the edge of town, is haunted by rumors of dead hookers found between mattresses and peep holes drilled through walls. When Special Agent Daniels targets the motel during an investigation, the nefarious owner, Sanjay, must scramble to conceal evidence of his own dark deeds. Just when he believes things can't get any worse, motel guests begin to vanish without a trace.

The author provides practical information that is easy to implement by those that have an interest in saving their relationship. The audiobook also highlights the fact that there is a lot of emotions involved in the process, and as such, things needs to be approached in a specific manner. This is a must-have for any individual who wants to get into a long term relationship or for a couple that wants to not only preserve but maintain what they have for the long term.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This book starts off fine, but quickly trails off into relationship advice. Now, I understand the interworkings of sex and the state of your relationship, but for over 50% of the book, the word "sex" is barely spoken. Too little Dr. Emily Morse, too much Dr. Phil.

Was Sex Tips for Couples worth the listening time?

No

Not audiobook material

The content of the book is good, though a bit dry in it's layout. The "idea" of a documentary-styled guide to a fictional situation is risky, and I say Brooks' book is a success. Cashman's delivery of the material is an utter failure. His voice woul be at home in a lecture hall filled with captive students. All the better if they are zombies. I'm going to chance World War Z, but only because Cashman's name isn't on the vocal roster.
