I wasn’t really interested at first being it was done as letters send to someone! But I actually loved it. You could feel the emotion, the angst, the fear and the sadness and the joy. It also created a space for hope for those struggling. It could also contain triggers though, so worth considering this. By the way, the narrated did an exceptional job!

A must listen to for every Australian

A must read/listen too! Contains factual circumstances and referencing of a corrupt industry, so focused on keeping your money they are willing to lie, cheat and steal to keep it! Excellently written, and narrated well too.

Christian.... sort of

I found the book to be very engaging. However a lot of the scenes were probably a little to graphic for a book in the ‘Christian’ marketplace. I found that the authors bias was woven into the book. It looked like it was heading towards a ‘Different approach to evangelism within the homosexual environment’ but then decided it was perfectly alright and within Gods plan. I unfortunately think this is a poor representation of Christianity.

I found this book quite enjoyable. But think it is more of a biography than a book for a budding entrepreneur. Janine has had a really great life, but found the doting over her husband a bit overwhelming and is pasted in nearly every paragraph somewhere.Because of this, I found the book a bit boring and unprofessional. However, all that being said, it is an enjoyable book, and there is some information in there, just not a lot.

I originally listened to this book thinking it would be educational. Let me start by saying, it really isn't, unless you want some super basics (like what is a 'Sweep' during pregnancy and some ways pregnancy can go) then this book is good. It contains all 3 of these books, and I have listed to them all about 4 times as I found it somewhat comforting and yet kept me sane during pregnancy. My wife would listen to this book with me as well. It is fantastically narrated, and the storyline is easy to listen to and engage with. It is all about a guy's diary entries during his girlfriends 'Unexpected' pregnancy, birth and first year. The drama of hating his job, a hormonal girlfriend, finding a new job, dealing with a new born, dealing with his and her parents and so many other things. All in all, 5/5, I loved it! :-) Just wish there was another one.

This book was very candid and easy to listen to because it was written less clinically, and more easy to understand. I did find the narrated was incredibly hard to listen to for more than 20-30mins at a time (might be great to put you to sleep) The content was otherwise quite good, but very surface and simple, didn’t really get into it a lot, however was speaking both from experience and also provided some depth obtained by research.

Humerous but educational (Sort of)

This book is not for someone wanting to study or research or anything like that. But if you are a Dad (Married to a 'To Be' Dad) then this book would work well. I love that the facts are correct and accurate, but delivered in a funny and easy to understand way. The information is VERY basic, so not in depth at all.

Great listen

It was a truly great book and I thoroughly enjoyed each and every minute of it and will listen to it again and again.
It shows the truth about how Australia is seen on the stage and the truth about Julia Gillard even when the media was so horrid.
Truly loved it, and for those feminists reading this, I am a straight male and still think she was a brilliant prime minister.
