Without any form of operations management, the major firms of today would be in the process of putting up their white surrender flag. Operations management is extremely important to the business world, because it is now the main factor to consider in attempts to gain an edge over a competitor.

  • Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find - And Keep - Love

Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking audiobook, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory - the most advanced relationship science in existence today - can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many best-selling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships - until now.

Would you consider the audio edition of Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find - And Keep - Love to be better than the print version?

I’ve not read the print version. This is an inappropriate first question for an audio book review.

What could Amir Levine and Rachel S. F. Heller have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Reading was dry and the story’s unfolding was so drawn out and boring that all I kept thinking was, GET TO THE POINT!

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I’ve tried listening to this at least five or six times over the last several years and find the reading incredibly boring.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

We all want to live a life that matters. We all want to reach our full potential. But too often we find ourselves overwhelmed by the day-to-day. Our big goals get pushed to the back burner - and then, more often than not, they get forgotten. New York Times best-selling author Michael Hyatt wants listeners to know that it doesn't have to be this way. In fact, he thinks that this is the year listeners can finally close the gap between reality and their dreams.

Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what's making us fat - and how we can change - in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes' crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. This can be weighty material and can be processed easily during long commutes or when traveling. I would also listen while cleaning the house.

What other book might you compare Why We Get Fat to and why?

Wheat Belly. Similar in that both share many reasons why carbohydrates are really unhealthy for you, but this book really is more about the science of fat production--it just so happens that carbohydrates cause you to become fat. This book is a detailed and specific exploration of adiposity science.

What about Mike Chamberlain’s performance did you like?

Really enjoyed his intonations and the authority with which he read the book.

This is a book about men. Not all men, just emotionally unhealthy men. The ones who make you question, "Is it him or is it me? Am I making too big a deal out of this? I try to tell him how I feel, but he says I'm overreacting or needy or it's all my fault". Relationships are hard work, but how hard should they be? When do you know you are struggling too hard to make a relationship succeed?
