Set up as a type of interactive training seminar, the author puts the listener through a copywriting boot camp. He delivers the information in a way that is both massive and easy to follow. You get ideas for different social media and how to most effectively grab the attention of potential customers. Very nicely put together.

The narration is good and professional.

The structure of the information was presented in a nice fashion and focused on each separate social media at a time. It would be very easy to follow these instructions and highly benefit from them. I do recommend having a note pad and pen/pencil handy as well as a finger on the pause button. You will need to take notes.

Sam Slydell did a great job with the narration. He kept it matter of fact without being boring. He keeps your interest peaked.

This was very thorough. I will be listening again later when I can sit down and write some stuff down. The information is presented in nice fashion. Breaks down each type of social media and then each item to be down is broken down.

All in all, if you are trying make a better presence for yourself online, this is a great guide. Just make sure you have several hours and a notepad and pen to take notes.

The narration was fine. He presented the information in a way that was not flat or boring. He definitely holds your interest.

Ambrose Ibsen has done it again. A gripping tale of horror with extreme foreboding. Just enough darkness lurking in the corners or the sound coming from upstairs, to make you question your sanity. Isolation and fear are the driving force.
Joe Hempel was excellent again.

Painful memories of prior abuse surface for Bit as she finds herself on a freighter full of rowdy, ungentlemanly merchant marines.

I really enjoyed the story, although it was a little brief. Definitely looking forward to book 2.
The premise catches your interest from the start and is rather unique. You care about the characters and the plot moves along at a nice even pace.
The narration was done very well. Mr. McEuen has a vast oeuvre of voices to help differentiate the many characters present.

In a near future where monsters and humans coexist, Hieronymus "Jer" Bennington isn’t your run-of-the-mill psychiatrist. Despite losing his parents to a monster attack, Jer doesn’t judge people by the clothes they wear or the horns on their head. Instead, he runs a controversial clinic where he offers therapy to beastniks, but when his best friend’s suspicious death implicates him for murder, he hunts for the truth in a sexy-dangerous underworld filled with mythical creatures.

Overall, the story was interesting. A psychiatrist who works with monsters to help them work through their problems. But in the midst of a midget investigation, he must also divert a revolution.
The beginning was a little slow and spent way too much time introducing characters that would not play a role in the story until much later or not at all. I struggled to stay with it.
Once the real story really begins to develop, it does take off and in the end it was worth it. The resolution seemed final so it does not seem like a series, although it could probably be developed into one. The characters were interesting and the monsters were ferocious and neurotic at the time.
All in all, I do recommend the book because the story was worth it in the end.
The narration was deftly handled by Chris Graves who explores a new bank of voices not used in some of his other work. Very impressive.

Enhancer 2 picks up pretty much right after the first book. Ty is still learning what he can do and still struggling with his job and Angie The Hutt! Now we meet the mysterious Super villain that appeared right at the end of part 1. Lilith is a welcome addition and a great character. She is conflicted about her loyalties and needs to figure out where she stands. Again, the characters arcs are great as you growth and movement in their lives. Mr. Graves did another excellent job. His voice for Angie The Hutt is the equivalent of nails on a chalkboard and it is glorious because you really get a sense of why Ty goes through.

Ty is just a normal guy trying to do his best. He’s single, stuck in a dead-end job with the most hateful boss in the universe, and struggling under a mountain of debt. When he witnesses an impossible battle between two superpowered people, every instinct he has tells him to run. Instead, he becomes the owner of a device that can change his life in ways he can barely imagine. All he has to do is survive for long enough to learn how to use it.

I really enjoyed Enhancer. It was a fast paced fun ride. The characters were original and likable. The story, while not all action, was very interesting and kept your attention. This was helped by the excellent narration on Chris Graves. This was the origin story and the characters of Ty does spend a big chunk of time figuring out his new powers. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys superheroes with a hint of LitRPG. Very fun.

Who has never had to take the craziest, worst shit of their life and realized that it was going to be somewhere that people will just know it was you. I could totally relate to the main character of this story. I laughed out loud at work and people were staring at me. This is a fun and quick listen for anyone looking for a great belly laugh!!!

Mr. Salzman handled the narration very well. Personally, I would not have been able to keep a straight face and not laugh. Very professional.
