The concept of this book is to allow the user to find their own meaning of each vocabulary in the context of the stories being told. It is one thing to know a word, but using it in a complex conversation like a story is more significant. This is quite convenient, as opposed to trying to figure a word out from a plain and boring language text. Also, the narration is nice and good for practicing pronunciation.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and I have left this unbiased review.

Intriguing and informative.

Crazy and creepy stories about extremely unstable people. The stories are told in documentary style, which is an informative narration of the subject.

This book is great for learning how to speak Italian better, and it is useful for learners at different levels of proficiency. The point, I believe, is to make the listener comfortable with the way most words are pronounced, along with the proper usage in various contexts. There are good stories in this book too, which are more like captions of typical interactions between people. The stories are meant to teach the listener how to interact in such situations, such that, they can manage to pass the right message during such encounters. Imagine not being able to tell the local cabbie exactly where you're going due to a translation/accent problem.
The narration is also good, both the Italian and corresponding English translations. Listening to these stories continually, while attempting the lessons learnt, are a sure way to speaking proper Italian within a short time.

I received a free copy of this book. This review is however based on my honest opinion of the book and how to maximize it's potential.

Good trivia across fun topics.

This book is a great listen. Your brain is kept on its toes, recollecting, trying to get or guess the correct answer to the current trivia! Each question is well described to give the listener enough information to answer correctly, and the correct answer is given some seconds after. At first though, the slight pause between the question and answer might feel weird, but as you continue, it becomes less noticeable. While, some people might prefer to skip these along, I think it defeats the purpose of attempting to know the answer to each question. It makes the whole book more exciting and mentally stimulating.
It is always fun to learn new and interesting things, and after learning, sharing with friends and family.
This book offers all these and more. The next family picnic will not be so boring afterall.

I received this book as a free review copy, and this is my voluntary feedback.
