This audio book was highly suggested by a friend who said "I must listen to it" I was very disappointed in the content.
The religious overtones were excessive and the stories and quotes that were in the book were barely relevant to how to prevent people from driving you crazy.
He also kept numbering things like "17 steps" for this "5 steps" for that. The whole book just reminded me of a motivational speaker throwing out anecdotes and quotes and stating the obvious in hopes that something sticks.

Oh my, this is a very annoying audible. You are much better getting a small dictionary and reading that. There is very little structure to it, and all you get is a word in English then the translation repeated twice in Spanish. And this goes on and on for 2 hours.

I thought it was pretty good. I think the music in the background make it a little gimmicky, and I have to warn you that the female has a lisp, so when she says certain words like Centro, she actually speaks it as Thentro, so unless you know for sure what she is trying to say, you will end up saying a few words incorrectly. Also the memory joggers that the male is trying to use for you to remember numbers are extremely stupid; I would recommend fast forwarding through his little memory joggers and move on to what the numbers are and how to tell time.
Also when she says "Olga" for "Hello" that is not "Hello", it's "Listen." Overall I do like it but I wouldn't say it's spectacular, and I'm also getting more Spanish Audibles so I get to listen to other perspectives.
