Who knew there was so much to know about Alaska!. This was a very entertaining and informative audio book. It was very easy to follow along with the information as it was presented. The author breaks up the book in to very reasonable sections. I think the follow up quizzes at the end of each chapter are a great idea and do help with the information retention.

The narrator is easy to listen to and very clear in his presentation. There was no issue following along as the material was presented. I have listened to the book several times just because there is so much information.

Overall I found this to be an excellent resource and a very enjoyable audio book experience.

These days it is really hard to judge a book by it's cover. Not so with Ryan Munsey's book. If you have any doubts about what the book will be like after reading the cover I'm really not sure what to tell you.

The book is a hard hitting, not for Snowflakes, guide to getting over yourself and getting on with what needs to get done. This a rare approach these days and one that I applaud. It's not Shakespeare or a Harlequin piece but is is a "no excuses" "no apologies" guide to help people get out of their own way.

Mr. Munsey isn't the best narrator that I've ever heard but there is a level of authenticity that comes from the author presenting his own piece in this kind of a "Wake the F up" kind of a book. I'm not sure it would be as good if it had been presented by a 3rd party narrator.

Summary: If you looking for a warm fuzzy self-help book...Read the cover again!!. If you want to get past your issues which all the other self help books didn't help with..try something new and listed to this book. If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result, then your in luck! Ryan Munsey's book is definitely not the "same" as the other books out there.

This is a very good beginners guide for the Keto experience. The author is very frank and honest about the diet, the process and the challenges.

The narration is good but I struggled to follow along in a few spots so I had to back up and listen again. In all fairness there is a lot to grasp here so my mind was relating what the author was imparting to my own situation. I blame this as the main reason for my distractability.

Overall this guide gives a great deal of beginner information in a short but well packed presentation. Listen a few times and you will pick up tips that you missed the first time through.

I would recommend this audiobook.

Its the Post-Apocalypse world. You have to worry about everyone and everything as you struggle to protect your home and family. But what happens when the stress / strain of daily survival is too much and even family ties are pushed to the limit?

This is a really interesting story basis and the author makes all the little up's and down's the character experience in this story build upon each other in a run up to a great ending (Spoiler alert) for this first part of the the series. There is definitely plenty to build on just with what the author has already packed into this story but I expect even more twists and turns as he adds to the series.

The narrator, Kevin Pierce, is the best of the best and as always delivers a flawless performance making a good story very enjoyable to listen to.

I would recommend this audiobook

William Wallace started out as a humble knight, but he died a war hero. He gave up everything in his fight for Scottish freedom, including his life. When captured, Wallace was hung, drawn, and quartered by the English king for crimes against the crown. Though he was memorialized in the 1995 film Braveheart, this book tells how much of what we associate with Wallace is more legend than fact. Still, the spirit of the great Scotsman lives on in the hearts and minds of his compatriots today.

This is a overview about a part of the Scottish history that many are aware of thanks to the Braveheart movie. This book goes into more detail and covers many of this aspects of William Wallace and related figures such are Robert the Bruce. One aspect is that unlike depicted in the movie, Wallace was not betrayed by Robert the Bruce.

The information is well presented in an easy to follow timeline format. The information is interesting and relevant from beginning to end.

The narrator is easy to listen to and does a great job with the presentation.

I found this to be a very helpful and enjoyable audiobook. I would recommend this audiobook.

Their first step is escaping an island in the midst of a tsunami, and it only gets more dangerous from there. Can they find their way home as civilization crumbles around them? And if they do, what horrors will they find?

This is a great re-visit to Steven Konkoly's Perseid Collapse story line but with different characters and situations within the same dystopian conditions. Very well done. Fresh but consistent with the original series with the bonus of listening to my favorite narrator (Kevin Pierce).

For James Rockwell and his family this is a dark journey of survival after already having had to endure the Jakarta Pandemic just a few years before. Are they strong enough to survive both man and nature in this newest of disasters? Just how much can one family endure? Follow along and see as they learn about the NEW normal where danger and surprises, good and bad, are just a page turn ahead.

Tom Abrahams takes us on a roller coaster ride with the Rockwells. We know how it worked out in Steven Konkly's series, what will it be like this time? Its a great story, well done and captivating. That along with the expert narration of Kevin Pierce and there isn't anything about this not to love.

The story is a standard fare for the post apocalyptic genre with the added flare of a struggling family dynamic. This was a rather interesting surprise and I found myself quickly on-board for the ride.

The main character is interesting and relatable. Some of the choices and dialog leave you slapping your head and grumbling but something interesting always happens along quickly to keep you moving.

The narrator was pleasant to listen too and did a good job with the task of character separation.

I found this to be an enjoyable listen with some lingering tidbits as a memorable take away.

I found this to be a challenging but valuable learning tool. While this is labeled "Beginner" it is more for a person who is beginning to actively converse in Spanish. This was just a bit past my level but it is very convenient to review over the lessons and the Text guide that also comes with the program.

It was a great exercise to advance my language skills as a result of this program. As a result of this program my conversation skills and confidence to have a conversation in Spanish has greatly increased. I appreciate the time and talent both the writer and narrator have invested in this program.

Lauren Russell often wondered why her father had been so adamant about teaching her skills that most other fathers wouldn't even consider teaching their daughters. Ever since she was little, she had been taught how to live and survive outdoors, and how to use firearms to protect herself and those around her. Some of the training had been a bit extreme. Or had it been? Many of her questions were answered the day the world as she knew it ended.

Great book. The basis of the story is a home run. Fresh approach to this Genre, coming from a very smart angle. The authors intro is great and really hits home as well.

The story of a father who cared enough to invest in giving his family what they needed most, independence! While all parents want to be there to protect their children, the reality is we can't be. This is a story of a father who knew that and made sure to equip his daughter with the lessons and skills that would make sure she was able to provide for her own safety in a world where there is no more 911.

As always, Kevin Pierce is the consummate narrator. Always top notch.

I highly recommend the book for its story and for its great narration.
