Where does The 30-Day Sobriety Solution rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'd rank this book high on my list in the self-help category.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the chapter by chapter approach (as opposed to reading a whole book before being able to implement the program). As the title suggests, each chapter = one day and each day offers one solution to work on. I particularly appreciate that this book is very action oriented and each action is specifically outlined. Each "solution" builds on the previous solution and offers the tools needed to get through the 30 days and beyond.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

What did you learn from The 30-Day Sobriety Solution that you would use in your daily life?

I learned to stop looking at the absence of alcohol as a loss and see what I gain by not having it in my life.

Any additional comments?

My only frustration in using this book is that the companion website does not deliver all that it suppose to offer. Often links lead to the wrong video or a resource mentioned is not there. I do wish that would be remedied. On the other hand, for the cost (I used 1 audible credit and purchased the book for $10.00) and time investment, I am not sure there is a more user friendly economical way to conquer the battle to drink/not drink.

Holling Hoodhood is really in for it. He's just started seventh grade with Mrs. Baker, a teacher he knows is out to get him. The year is 1967, and everyone has bigger things to worry about, especially Vietnam. Then there's the family business. As far as Holling's father is concerned, the Hoodhoods need to be on their best behavior: the success of Hoodhood and Associates depends on it.

I highly recommend this book on audio. The book itself is wonderful but Joel Johnston's narration breathes life into each character. I love this audio book and recommend it to everyone (several family and friends have listened and loved it as well).

In this first volume of his memoirs, then-newly-qualified vet James Herriot arrives in the small Yorkshire village of Darrowby, and he has no idea what to expect. How will he get on with his new boss? The local farmers? And what will the animals think? This program is filled with hilarious and touching tales of the unpredictable Siegfried Farnon, his charming student brother Tristan, and Herriot's first encounters with a beautiful girl named Helen.

I've listened to this book before and it is just as wonderful as I remembered. My only regret is that it's done! I'll have to try some of the author's other books. The narrator of this book nailed it! Could be better.
