This has some sound approaches to parenting and they certainly worked in our house. My only two criticisms are 1) there is a fair amount of repetition, and 2) the delivery is incredibly slow. Other than that - fab.

The meditations are read so beautifully that I also enjoy listening to them with my daughter. A great little audiobook for active children that need a help winding down...

Great to calm busy little minds! My children listen to this before going to bed and it's a great alternative to a bedtime story when they're overly active.

Crack House takes the listener into the dark heart of our cities' most violent and terrifying places, showing how the war on drugs can only be won by constant and forceful vigilance. The bastard offspring of cocaine, crack first entered the UK in the early 1990s. By the end of the decade, Britain's inner cities were in the midst of a crack epidemic, with users being responsible for a massive proportion of crime. Communities, especially in London, were crying out for help, but there were only two specialist units in the whole of the capital.

This has to be one of the best audio books I've ever listened to.

Although fact, it reads like fiction. I was fascinated to hear about this sub-culture that exists under our noses. The human character is portrayed in it's extreme - dogged determination from all angles.

Brilliantly narrated. One of the few books that excels in this format - far more enjoyable listening to it than having read it myself.

This is one of the best read audio books I've listened to. The accents are so well done. The story is simple and quite curious, and it always left me looking forward to the next instalment from. I'd definitely recommend it.

Beautifully written, and read. Could have been 20% shorter without losing any of the impact. Full of twists and turns - most of which weren't predictable. But I must say, I struggled at times to remember who was who, as a zoned out a few times. Overall, glad I stuck with it.
