Mr. Comey shares with the depth of heart that is surprising to most, his honest and candid experiences of working for the FBI and jobs before that. This is more of a memoir than any type of book on political finger-pointing. I was quite impressed. It’s a must listen to for anyone concerned about our country

Prior to stepping onto the battlefield with a Narcissist, it is imperative to know their playbook both forwards and backwards. The behavior of individuals with Narcissistic Personality Disorder generally defies logic but sadly, their tactics in the Family Court System often fool Judges, Commissioners, Attorneys, Minor's Counsel, Social Workers, Therapists, and even trained Evaluators.

As a therapist, I will be recommending this book to my clients going through a difficult divorce. It offers much to feel a sense of empowerment

The only struggle I had was a lack of pause or any change of voice tone by the narrator, to indicate that the story was now about actual people's examples and not the author's own. I found myself lost for quite awhile until I figured that out. However, the peaceful tone of voice by the reader was perfect and pleasant. I enjoyed this book tremendously, both personally and professionally.

Would you try another book from Cindi Sansone-Braff and/or Rina Adachi?

No, I wouldn't. In my opinion, this author had a style of subtly putting the reader (listener) down, if the reader (listener) didn't want to follow her advice given in the book.

Has Why Good People Can't Leave Bad Relationships turned you off from other books in this genre?

This book did not impress me. I had a difficult time hearing the content, as the voice of the narrator was the worst I ever heard in an audiobook. This narrator's voice was nasal, twangy and had an arrogant tone to it. I am looking into how to return this book. I am not going to finish it.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The narrator's voice was very unpleasant.
