The ending made me want to throw the book accross the room! Grade school level book except for the explicit content. The first book, even though it was predictably if you have read a lot of books like this, was more entertaining. Even though it could be that I've just out grown this type of literature. I think I need to start reading more things that are fulfilling to my soul.

Your thoughts shape your life, create your reality, and ultimately limit or expand your true potential. Everything from relationships and love, to health and well-being, to wealth and prosperity are directly connected to how you think and what you think about most of the time - for better or for worse.

This is not much different than other books I have read on the topic of creating your life's outcome. Overall it was still worth the short listen for such a small price. I would say that I had to replay a few seconds, because it got a little confusing...it could have been that my thoughts drifted off.

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

This was a great book! Great for those who didn't receive that wise financial advice growing up, and even for those who did, but didn't use that advise.

What did you like best about this story?

What I really enjoyed is the fact that he didn't just tell you what to do, and beat around the bush, but he actually told you how to do it; even gave examples. After I listened to it, I had my 12 year old son read it.

Meanwhile, Jonquinette becomes interested in her new neighbor, Mason, but Jude has no intention of letting Jonquinette fall in love—not when Jude’s having so much fun.

Would you consider the audio edition of Nervous to be better than the print version?

No, I don't think you can replace how u interpert it in your mind for how someone else makes it sound.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Nervous?

Unexpected ending!

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

I cant wait to see the movie since they are making it into a movie starring Boris Kodjoe. I would title it Green Pastures.

Any additional comments?

One of Zane's best books!

Dr. Jamal Bryant takes a step into a controversial and exploratory zone of relationships and sexuality in this hard hitting three part series featuring "Vitamin C", "Ride With Me", "Take One For The Team", and Conversation with Zane!" The latter is a special encounter with the world renowned author and publisher Zane in a exclusive conversation on black sexuality. Most women, generally, don’t have much trouble attracting men.

Would you try another book from Jamal-Harrison Bryant and/or the narrator?

Book? This was more like church.

What was most disappointing about Jamal-Harrison Bryant’s story?

I did not expect someone to preach to me through the whole thing.

How could the performance have been better?

Make it a book not a serman.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. Not even the interview with Zane......she is one of my favorite authors and it was disappointing in the questions he asked.

Any additional comments?

I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone, I would just say go talk to a pastor instead.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would defiantly broaden the vocabulary in this book, u hear the same words often. I also would change the person who read the book.

What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

When she acts out the man's voice it is so annoying, makes him seem unattractive.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

They would have to tweet it alot and then perhaps I would go see it.

Any additional comments?

This book may have been better for me if I had read it myself!
