If you suffer from anxiety, depression, addictions, and other problematic disorders, you can treat and overcome them with cognitive behavioral therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a psychotherapeutic approach that addresses dysfunctional emotions, maladaptive behaviors, and cognitive processes and contents through a number of goal-oriented, explicit systematic procedures.

First: the young reader mispronounces basic words "EX cetera," and ofTen" being two frequent, egregious errors.
Also, this content is not suited to audiobook format at all, as one is frequently asked to write things down. That is seldom feasible when listening to audio books on drives, walks, workouts, ET cetera.
I am asking for a refund. This is a serious topic that demands serious research, writing, narration, and dispensation if it is to be of help
to those in need.

Like every other superhero, Wonder Woman has a secret identity. Unlike every other superhero, she has also has a secret history. Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer Jill Lepore has uncovered an astonishing trove of documents, including the never-before-seen private papers of William Moulton Marston, Wonder Woman's creator.

Ms. Lepore has written a WONDERful book, and the history of comics, women, and, in fact, the world should be grateful. I certainly am.
That said, her reading style, and lack of skill diminishes and infantilises a genuinely riveting, adult, important narrative, and, a mere 2 hours in, I cannot bear to listen to the rest.
I have purchased a hard copy, and will re-read from the beginning, as her bizarre and childish attempt has all but ruined the first 4 chapters.
Please keep writing, but PLEASE hire a voiceover professional for your next masterpiece? You deserve it.
