Even though the world is governed by laws, human beings are able to be free. In fact, there is no difference between being genuinely free and having a distinctively human psychological architecture. But self-deception and rationalization can result in the replacement of actual beliefs with operational pseudo-beliefs. When this happens, the result is a sociopathic pseudo-person.

What did you like best about Determinism, Freedom, Psychopathy? What did you like least?

the intelligence, the analytical quality of it

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

the narrator was appalling. he did not get a single sentence right. don't buy this audio. read the book. kuczynski should get a new narrator and forget he ever met this johnson guy.

Would you be willing to try another one of Mitchell Johnson’s performances?

never. he has a fake 'one size fits all' radio voice, but a realliy stupid radio voice. he obviously doesn't understand the material.

Did Determinism, Freedom, Psychopathy inspire you to do anything?

yes, it inspired me to never, ever buy an audio book narrated by mitchell johnson.

Any additional comments?

yes, mitchel johnson should have his head drained. he sucks.

The typical serial rapist leads a Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde life, undetected by neighbors, co-workers, even family. He may work his way through dozens or even hundreds of victims before he's caught - assuming he ever is. Who are these men and what makes them tick? A small band of criminologists and psychologists make it their life's work to find out, devising elaborate psychological profiles of specific rapists.

This most celebrated collections of tales feature shape-shifting and miraculous transportation across continents, powerful jinn who rise like smoke from simple vessels, and dreams that delve into the secrets of the subconscious. This innovative book retells a selection of tales that have captured the imaginations of countless people over many centuries. Accompanying each is a contemporary short story that reframes the messages and teachings of the original, specifically written for an adult audience.

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

If that 'friend' is a metro-sexual politically correct geekazoid, then, maybe.

What other book might you compare Arabian Nights & Arabian Nights to and why?

arabian nights, but I liked that one better.

Did Francie Wyck do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

no. she's kind of whiny. it's actually a good book, and the author is talented. but this chick's voice is really corporate. boo!

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

no, too long for that.

Any additional comments?

the author needs to grow his balls back. he's so middle aged. but, technically, it is good material. you have to give it a chance.

Rape, sodomy, strangulation, stabbing, murder, and dismemberment. So were some of Joel David Rifkin's favorite "hobbies" that he inflicted on mostly drug addicted or alcoholic prostitutes from 1988 to 1993. Police finally caught up to Rifkin on June 28, 1993, when state troopers spotted him driving his pickup truck without license plates on the Southern State Parkway. A high-speed chase ended in Mineola, New York, when he crashed into a utility pole directly in front of the courthouse where he eventually stood trial.

Would you consider the audio edition of Logic, Philosophy, and Psychoanalysis to be better than the print version?

Dramatically, since it is, in fact, drama. It is drama pretending to be philosophy, or maybe it's philosophy pretending to be drama. But, no, it's the former.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The understated passion

What about J.-M. Kuczynski’s performance did you like?

The oozing virility.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

The brains and manliness are not mutually exclusive

Any additional comments?

Red blooded women will love it. 'Dainty' women will not. The man is...a cave man!!!!
