This is a great book if you're looking to improve your communication skills whether for work or personal. There's not much to gain if you already know how to talk with those around you but still worth the listen, if just as a refresher, to make sure the skills you know are being used. If you're looking for a guide to help you communicate better then you should really check this out. The narration was good, nice pace and pleasant voice.

We all speak to ourselves on a daily basis. Whether it’s out loud or an internal (or infernal) commentary, we all practice self-talk, and how we speak to ourselves can have a significant effect on our emotions and subsequent actions. Mindfulness expert Ian Tuhovsky explains how we can rewrite the script when it comes to our internal communication. Through a series of simple exercises for use in daily life, you can understand your own self-talk in order to change the conversation.

This is a great guide for those looking to change their inner musings. I've always thought of myself as a fairly positive person but after listening to this book and doing some of the exercises I realized that I could do a lot better. The author does an excellent job trying to cover the main points of being aware of one's self talk and helping to give people a starting point. Of course there's always more that can be said and done to improve but this book gives a great place to start. I enjoyed listening to it and learned a bit more about myself in the process. The narration was well done and helped to keep the listener engaged.

This is an excellent bundle to get if you are looking to learn Spanish. I have been listening to it for the last month and it's really helped me to relearn to speak Spanish. I took Spanish in high school (too many years ago) and was fluent but like anything we learn, if you don't use it you lose it. So I decided to relearn since I live in the southwest and Spanish is spoken often. This bundle really helped me to brush up on what I have forgotten. I highly recommend this book set for anyone wanting to learn how to converse in Spanish.

This box set is more for young adults than adults but is an interesting listen. The story is well written with good character development. Although it starts off with major drama I still found myself listening wondering what will lead to what. The story has a bit more drama than I care for but is also full of action, adventure and the paranormal. The narration was well done and really brought the books to life. This will be a set I'll load on my kids tablets for them to listen to but doubt I'll listen to it again. It's a good story for the young adults in your life.

If you're looking for some quick steam then this is the book for you. This is a very quick listen full of steam, like someone took a scene out of another story just for your listening pleasure. There's not much else to this story but it is only thirty minutes long! I really enjoyed listening to it and would recommend it to my erotica friends. The narration is really nice as well. Jack Calihan has a smooth deep voice that would have anyone swooning if he was just reading the phone book! If you're looking for a story with great depth, character buildup and a meaningful plot then bypass this one. However, if you are looking for a well written quickie with plenty of steam then check this out!!

I enjoyed listening to this book and learning more about Hermes. I've only just recently heard of Thoth but I have known of Hermes for most of my life. It was quite interesting to hear how various cultures have viewed and integrated this being into their beliefs. The narration was well done and nicely paced. If you enjoy learning about ancient beings who have impacted our modern lives then you need to check this book out.

This is a different and original erotica story. I hadn't heard a story quite like this one before and not really sure I want to. It's not bad, quite the contrary, it's well written and flows very well but it just didn't grab me like others have. I'm actually at a loss on how to word my review. Like I said, it's not bad but not great either, despite it's originality. I doubt I'll listen to it again but will recommend it to a friend who might be interested. Give it a try, you might enjoy it. The narration was well done. Leigh DeSalles did an excellent job with the voices but her cadence was off a time or two but not enough to really detract from the listening experience.

Wow! I'm not kidding! This series is absolutely wonderful and I so did not see the end coming! Loved it!! Even though each story has it share of angst and drama it also has so much action and adventure to balance it beautifully! This is one of my favorite vampire series and I'm sad to see it come to an end. RA Steffan and Jaelynn Woolf outdid themselves with this series and now that I have all six, I'll have to spend a weekend listening to them all again...nonstop, beginning to end! If you enjoy vampire romance books then you have to check out this series!! Seriously, you will not regret it! The narration by Gwendolyn Druyor was awesome as usual. She really brought this series to life and truly enhanced the listening experience. Well done everyone, well done!

This book is a must for anyone looking to go into the soap making business! Although I have no plans on starting a soap making business I found this book very informative nonetheless. I enjoyed that the author included the history of soap. There's so much packed into this hour and a half of listening that you cannot go wrong by getting it. Ms. Silva covers all you need to know to start your own business in selling the soaps you make. I think those who are wanting to just make their own soaps as a hobby should get this book. The information contained in this book is not just for those starting their business but for anyone who likes to know more about a passion they have. The narration is done very well and I absolutely loved Deryn Oliver's accent. She really enhanced the listening experience.

This is an excellent way to learn to speak Italian. Ever since the Rosetta Stone came out I have been looking for cheaper ways to learn another language. I enjoyed listening to this collection of lessons and where I'm no where near fluent I am on my way to being able to converse in Italian. Although this is an excellent guide on it's own, I have to say that I have mixed it with another guide by Lingo Mastery and together they are awesome!! Each are excellent and you can learn to speak the language but together...yeah, it makes them even better. I will (and have) recommend both to my friends and to you reading this review. You cannot go wrong with this collection of lessons if you are wanting to learn Italian. The narration was done well. There are three narrators and they are easy to follow and understand.
