Interesting story, very well narrated by Michel Obama. It is not a work of Shakespeare, but all the more authentic.

Daniel Kahneman explains the two systems that drive the way we think: System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, deliberate, and logical. To help you to deeply understand the original book Thinking, Fast and Slow, this audio summary offers chapter summaries, broken down by subsections; definitions and explanations of the terminology used; and suggested further information of Kahneman's research.

I love the book THINKING, FAST AND SLOW. But how it was narrated by Cathi Colas is just unenjoyable. Voice, speed, intonation - everything was awkward.

This acclaimed best seller from popular historian Alison Weir is a fascinating look at the Tudor family dynasty and its most infamous ruler. The Six Wives of Henry VIII brings to life England’s oft-married monarch and the six wildly different but equally fascinating women who married him. Gripping from the first sentence to the last and loaded with fascinating details, Weir’s rich history is a perfect blend of scholarship and entertainment.

This book has everything a good book needs to have - an interesting and gripping story, a perfectly researched historical background, special personalities and a lot of dynamic. The narrator is fantastic. I loved this book so much, that I have swallowed it virtually.

Steve Harvey can't count the number of impressive women he's met over the years—the many incredible women who can run a business, have three kids, maintain a household in tiptop shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. So, when it comes to relationships, why can't these same women figure out what makes men commit? According to Steve, it's because they're asking other women for advice when they should be going directly to the source.

Good book! Very old style school portraits of men and womenIn, but also in the time of feminism applicable, then “the game” between the genders doesn’t change that much.

I didn't finish the book. I hoped to get some interesting information about Amsterdam in form of a detective story, because the title promised that. But the city is not the object of the story at all. The book is just an average detective story. The dutch accent of the narrator is not authentic, but that doesn't change the fact, that his performance was very good.

Are you truly in danger or has your brain simply "tricked" you into thinking you are? In The Worry Trick, psychologist and anxiety expert David Carbonell shows how anxiety hijacks the brain and offers effective techniques to help you break the cycle of worry, once and for all. Anxiety is a powerful force. It makes us question ourselves and our decisions, causes us to worry about the future, and fills our days with dread and emotional turbulence.

If it’s your first book about worrying it might be ok to read it. Unfortunately it just repeats well known information. I didn’t really get an answer what is the worry trick. After old good Dale Carnegie’s “How to stop worrying and start living” not really a hit.
