A houseful of clutter may not be the only reason people pack on extra pounds, but research proves that it plays a big role. A recent study showed that people with super-cluttered homes were 77 percent more likely to be overweight or obese! In Lose the Clutter, Lose the Weight, organizing guru Peter Walsh comes to the rescue with a simple six-week plan to help listeners.

Would you recommend Lose the Clutter, Lose the Weight to your friends? Why or why not?

Maybe, This book is very repetitive and having it as an audiobook, is ridiculous. There is an entire chapter where the author is explaining exercises for people to do during a 6 week period while they are decluttering their home. Reading it and having it include pictures would be more beneficial.

Who could forget the sexy "Cherry Pie" girl from hair metal band Warrant's infamous music video? Bobbie Brown became a bona fide vixen for her playful role as the object of lead singer Jani Lane's desires. With her windblown peroxide mane, seductive scarlet lips, and flirtatious curves, she epitomized every man's fantasy. But the wide-eyed Louisiana beauty queen's own dreams of making it big in Los Angeles were about to be derailed by her rock-and-roll lifestyle.

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

Yes, This book gives a insider look into the rock lifestyle of the time. Bobbie doesn't hide things because she doesn't want to make someone mad or to make herself look better. Everyone's flaws are out on the table and so are hers.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dirty Rocker Boys?

Bobbie is so transparent in this book that you can really get a feel of the ups and downs in her life. She is also careful to tell her story from her perspective. Others are discussed in detail but she doesn't really speculate on their story as much as her perspective and experience.

Any additional comments?

I love reading biography or autobiography types of books. You can tell when a book is written on the fly or with certain things omitted or glossed over so that the person telling the story is seen in a better light. Bobbie doesn't hold back her own short comings and you can tell what she has learned from her experiences and how she really feels about everything around her. Is she a saint? Hell no. But is she just cold hearted and out to get everyone, not really. This is a down and dirty book and I loved it.

Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them? Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother.

Would you consider the audio edition of How to Be a Woman to be better than the print version?

I think listening to the audio version added to the book because you could hear the accent that Caitlin Moran wrote the book with. Sometimes when a writer has a different accent than the reader, the word choices don't completely make sense because different areas of the world use different sayings and slang.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Be a Woman?

Caitlin Moran is very frank and gets into some really personal areas of her life. Some of these areas can be very cringe worthy but she handles them with humor and understanding that not everyone will agree with her.

What about Caitlin Moran’s performance did you like?

I like that her passion comes through in her performance.

Any additional comments?

If you are easily offended or have trouble with slang and curse words, this book is not for you. If you like it when people give it to you straight and are really honest about hard topics, you will get a lot of use out of this book.
