Very relatable, fresh, and enjoyable
This is my favourite audible title and I’ve bought about 30. She writes things that are very insightful and helpful but that you haven’t heard before and that are clearly her thoughts. She’s not regurgitating Allen Carr or AA doctrine and it’s quite self-biographical at times too. She’s English and roughly my age - so for me the English culture references and her choice of language add to my ability to relate. It’s both entertaining and educational at the same time. Genuinely and without incentive - this book is great!!

German-Catholic industrialist and Nazi Party member Oskar Schindler used his wealth and influence to save the lives of more than 1,300 Jews who would have otherwise died in the concentration camp at Plaszow. Here is the story on which Steven Spielberg based his powerful motion picture.

Go ben Kingsley
The more audiobooks I listen to the more I realise the quality of the reader is key. Ben Kingsley is ace - he does the voices for each character and everything!!
