After being together for 10 years, Sylvie and Dan have all the trimmings of a happy life and marriage; they have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, and beautiful twin girls and communicate so seamlessly, they finish each other's sentences. However, a trip to the doctor projects they will live another 68 years together, and panic sets in. They never expected "until death do us part" to mean seven decades. In the name of marriage survival, they quickly concoct a plan to keep their relationship fresh and exciting.

Every manager or person who strives to be a manager should read this book. When I managed a team this is how I did It and had extraordinary results because of it. Little did I know that I was executing Gung Ho! .
The team I’m on now could greatly benefit from this.

This version had some skips and audio issues which was disappointing. Story had a lot of characters that were difficult to keep up with. It ended rather abruptly for one character and left me wondering about some of the other main characters and how their story ended. Kind of makes me wonder if it skipped part of the story.

Everywhere Katie Brenner looks, someone else is living the life she longs for, particularly her boss, Demeter Farlowe. Demeter is brilliant and creative, lives with her perfect family in a posh townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. Katie's life, meanwhile, is a daily struggle - from her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she's trying to negotiate. No wonder Katie takes refuge in not-quite-true Instagram posts, especially as she's desperate to make her dad proud.
