Optimise your business

A brilliant listen. I recently moved my business online due to the pandemic sweeping across the world, and although I am locally known, I found that even my regulars had no idea where to find me online, until I was bought this by my partner, and learned about search engine optimisation and its benefits, I had to bring someone in from the outside to improve my website, and now business is booming. Which for me obviously has been great, I will be seeing if this book can assist me further in the coming weeks of which I am sure it will.

I got this book, followed it's advice, and I can safely say – my partner is beaming with happiness. I am very glad I got this, as is my partner. Thank you!

Overcome problems

Problems in relationships are more common than not. However, it is important to work together with your partner to overcome those issues. This audiobook serves as the perfect tool for anyone who needs just a little bit more guidance and knowledge on how to solve things. A very well-made audiobook.

Empathy

I have to admit, I am not the most empathetic person in the world. Not even close. That is why I got this audiobook – in hopes that I can learn, and understand how I can make a future relationship good. It definitely delivered more than I expected, and I couldn’t have been happier with it.

Strive for better

A great little listen. I bought this due to it's section regarding empathy, as I have ASD (autistic spectrum disorder) and often find myself being unable to show empathy at the correct moments. During my time with my girlfriend, I got this to listen to, as I find audiobooks a more pleasant experience compared to physical books. Also, as someone who is very particular about sound, I found the narrator to be enjoyable to listen to, as well as easy to understand. I struggled with some of the information, however, that is more of a “me problem”. The “Practicing Empathy” chapter has actually given me some usable advice and although I have only put some of what I have learnt into practice, it has shown to be successful thus far.

What is love?

I have been studying about how love works, both short, and long term, alongside my psychology undergrad course. This is mostly due to a small study I am interested in regarding how love affects perception. I found this gem to listen to while writing up my research papers. It’s got some great advice for new couples and long-term partners, but best of all, it has some really interesting perspectives on how love works. That was just an added bonus for me, personally. The idea of “partner skills” and being able to learn them in order to maintain love is such an interesting, and likely factual concept. I say this, as I have currently no way to test these ideas, but I will most definitely be keeping this on my phone, ready for the day it is needed.

A relaxing listen

This audiobook is suitable for anyone, though specifically useful for those in relationships. I’ve been single for years. and don’t feel like that will change any time soon, however, the content of this book is fascinating for an outsider to hear. It helps with the understanding how a relationship can be stabilized and improved upon. I have loved every minute of listening to this book and have understood all the information so perfectly narrated for me. My understanding of relationships has grown significantly. 10/10 would most definitely listen to again. This audiobook has my highest recommendations.

Helpful for anger management

My wife recently bought this fairly good audiobook for me, in order to make use of, as for a few years now I have been having some (unfortunately awful) anger management issues, mostly due to stress. I have found several other chapters in this book to be fairly interesting, and it has helped me understand how to make my wife feel loved, and help keep my marriage from falling apart. The anger management chapter has helped a lot, and although I am not completely rid of my anger, it is a step in the right direction. I am very thankful both to the author and my wife as well as the narrator for this.

Troubling parents

One of the chapters is literally titled “Keep Parent Out of The Picture” – good advice. My parents simply love trying to make my relationship crumble; however, I was always fearful to lose contact with them. Turns out this audiobook is just the push I needed to confront them, and bring my relationship to the most stable point we have been at. Thanks so much – this really helped!

Expressing my feelings

Due to being bullied in the past, and having a few rocky relationships before, I cannot really express my feelings. This audiobook certainly helped a bit – me, and my current girlfriend are doing pretty well, if I do say so myself! 10/10, certainly one of the best out there!

Appreciate your significant other

I have learnt so much from this audiobook. I definitely show much more appreciation to my boyfriend for everything he does for me every day, from making me tea to taking the bins out. It made me realise how important showing appreciation on a daily basis is.

Be assertive

This audiobook will not only show you how to make your relationship better, but also teach you some very crucial things, including how to be assertive and say no. “Realize When to State No and When to Acknowledge No” is a must-read, especially if you are very complacent.

Improving intimate relations

Me and my girlfriend had some issues that led to us not having any intimate time together (physically), so no naughty times for either of us. Thanks to this audiobook, we managed to talk through our problems, and “Restore Your Sexual Coexistence” really helped too.
