Ok i’ve learnt my lesson, this is useless as an audio book I can’t think why I imagined it would be good in audio anyway. The narrator sends you to sleep with he monotone slow reading style.
American measurements used throughout which pretty unhelpful for Audible.co.UK!
Totally unusable unless you write the whole lot down, but you can’t search for anything and have no idea which recipes are in the book.
Wasted a credit willneed to get the Kindle or paper version if it is to be of any use at all.

Random House presents This Audiobook Will Send You to Sleep by Professor K. McCoy and Dr Hardwick, read by Bruce Alexander. Sleep smarter. This Audiobook Will Send You to Sleep makes no claims to be fun or interesting. It is an audiobook you can listen to in full confidence that you will find absolutely nothing to stimulate your brain. An audiobook, like no other, that will afford you much sleep and copious amounts of pointless knowledge.

In 1961, Wally Funk was among the Mercury 13, the first group of American pilots to pass the ‘Women in Space’ programme. Wally sailed through a series of rigorous physical and mental tests, her scores beating many of the male candidates, including those of John Glenn, the first American in orbit. But just one week before she was due to enter the final phase of training, the programme was abruptly cancelled. A combination of politics and prejudice meant that none of the women ever flew into space.

I love anything to do with space and Iwould have loved to meet Wally and Sue. Gripping, funny, sad, interesting, beautfully read what else can I say? I met Helen Sharman when she came to officially open my technology centre at my school when I was the head of the department, she was the most down to earth, humble and interesting person I have ever met. I’m not surprised she was upset with the way the press treated her. She deserves, like Wally much higher praise and standing in our technological society.

Why Mummy Drinks is the brilliant novel from Gill Sims, the author of the online sensation Peter and Jane. It is Mummy's 39th birthday. She is staring down the barrel of a future of people asking if she wants to come to their advanced yoga classes and polite book clubs where everyone claims to be tiddly after a glass of Pinot Grigio and says things like 'oooh gosh, are you having another glass?'

The brilliantly quirky David Sedaris returns with a book of acerbic and outrageously funny stories about animals who have unmistakably human failings.This collection of sharply observed animal-themed tales is a delight, told with David Sedaris’s trademark blend of hilarity and goodnaturedness. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of our own everyday interactions.

What would have made Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk better?

I am a fan of David but this is a terrible set of stories which are not interesting or funny in any form. The reader does not introduce any expression or life into them. What a waste of a credit Really really disappointed with this purchase.

Would you ever listen to anything by David Sedaris again?

Yes

How could the performance have been better?

Different narrator might help.

This is a wonderful and thoughtful book, it tells the story of the man behind the tv face of Fred. Such a talented and interesting man who truly lived in a past age where values were valued. We share a hero, Brunel and through that I felt a true connection. I will never look at a stack or church tower without thinking of this wonderful man.

I purchased this book simply because I knew a little of the history. I have worked in three Quaker businesses and for Mars. I was aware of the links between them but this wonderful book has given me more insight into this great British business. Such a shame that it is no longer British owned. A really really good listen with beautiful detail and heart warming tales of how man should care for his fellows, of how businesses should care for their staff. Simply excellent.

Well I really like Phil on TV and the radio. I decided that this would be an interesting listen, how wrong could I be? Monotonous, dull, and mind numbingly uninteresting, great for sending you to sleep, instantly! Sorry Phil this is a dreadful read or rather listen. To use your own quote 'I would rather listen to the weather forecast in Russian'.

From his Cornish boyhood, Rory recounts his life of birdwatching, observing his first skylark while stoned; his repeatedly failed attempts to get up at the crack of dawn like the real twitchers; and his flawed bid to educate his mate Danny in the ways of birding. Rory's tale is a thoroughly educational, occasionally lyrical and highly amusing romp through the hidden byways of birdwatching.

This is a most interesting and humorous book. Rory reads his account in a very lively and engaging style, so much so that I did nothing else other than draw all day whist listening!
I learnt a great deal and recalled a lot of existing knowledge. The account of visiting a hide for the first time is so, so true.
I would beware of listening to this in public for fear of laughing out loud!
