Stop listening to your "bro" about what drives women wild and what they want...When it comes to sex, you want to listen to a females' perspective. We know what we like, we know what makes our toes curl and we can tell you exactly what to do. We also know what we hate, what makes us cringe and what we just wish you would stop doing.

What disappointed you about What She Wants?

The narration is very poor. The voice is nasal, the volume changes across chapters significantly. At one point i could hear a dog barking in the background. The narrator has a monotone voice, no inflection, no modulation, no change of pace or pitch to match the content.

What was most disappointing about Aubrey Allan’s story?

The content is very basic and the writing is amateurish.

How could the performance have been better?

Use a more professional narrator and audio equipment.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

  • You Are Not So Smart

  • Why You Have Too Many Friends on Facebook, Why Your Memory Is Mostly Fiction, and 46 Other Ways You're Deluding Yourself

An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise. You believe you are a rational, logical being who sees the world as it really is, but journalist David McRaney is here to tell you that you're as deluded as the rest of us. But that's OK - delusions keep us sane. You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self-delusion. It's like a psychology class, with all the boring parts taken out, and with no homework. Based on the popular blog of the same name, You Are Not So Smart collects more than 46 of the lies we tell ourselves everyday.

What did you love best about You Are Not So Smart?

The narration is gold! A rich and smooth tone with good modulation and cadence. So very easy to listen to and understand.

What did you like best about this story?

This is a great book that gets you thinking about thinking, it's broken up into bite size chunks which makes it easy to digest. Each topic is laid out in a similar format so it's easy to follow.

What about Don Hagen’s performance did you like?

This guy is the king of narrators. Rich, smooth voice. Very easy listening.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, i listen to it on my commute and it's broken up perfectly for that.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to start this authors next book.

  • Your Brain on Love

"Understand your brain, improve your relationships." That's what Stan Tatkin has learned from his leading-edge work as a researcher and couples therapist. In this complete audio learning program, he merges current insights from neurobiology and attachment theory to help us shift out of conflict and into deeper and more loving connections. Listeners first learn to identify attachment styles - the patterns of intimacy that begin in our earliest years - both in ourselves and in those around us.

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

This book is essential reading for anyone in a relationship whether it's going well or not or how new the relationship is. In fact, I believe everyone would benefit from reading this book.

What did you learn from Your Brain on Love that you would use in your daily life?

I thought I was good at relationships but this book and the attachment theory model has broken down all of my old beliefs and I'm now installing new ones. I've had a paradigm shift and my priorities (values, if you will) have been re-organised. I now see that the relationship is paramount, not the individual. Two people together in a secure functioning relationship can achieve much more with their lives than if they were to operate independently. I will apply what I have learned here and with further study I will become a better man and help my partner feel understood and secure in my love.
