Breakups are never ever going to be easy and will never be, with or without this book.

However, I can confidently and honestly say this book WILL help you a long. It came to me at a very dark time during a horrible breakup and was a life saver. It taught me how to deal with the whole situation and eventually get over it.

Thanks to the author.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely I would and I already have...

Why?! Well pretty obvious! Due to following the advice in this book I am (finally) getting a load of matches. And we all know what more matches means...

...more fun ;)

Any additional comments?

I personally found this a very useful book, containing loads of very unique (but also very easy to understand follow) information about how to use Tinder more effectively!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES. If they were suffering from social anxiety or shyness (as I have for much of my life) then I would 100% recommend this book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

??

Which character – as performed by Rebekah Amber Clark – was your favourite?

?? It was not that sort of book.

Any additional comments?

I find a lot of books in this genre to either be far too medical or just to be full of endless tests. This book was, thankfully, different. It was practical. It contained information, advice and tips that I could implement in my own life.

It felt realistic. And most importantly, at least 80% of what it has recommended has worked within a week. I feel so much better already and last night I was able to strike up a conversation with a complete stranger, something i would have found very difficult in the past.

Very grateful for this book and i highly recommend it!

What did you like most about How to Stop Procrastination & Get More Done in Less Time!?

Loved it. I would listen to the book again and again. it helps to go over the strategies that helped me reduce the way I procrastinate. Secondly, I like the anecdotal style of the narration. Lastly, the length of the book is ideal for a quick read during down time.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book to my friends, in fact I already have sent it to my neighbour who never gets anything done in time for our weekly book club. It’s a book that touches on the psychology behind procrastination. It lets the listeners understand the reasons why people push things further in time and sometimes end up not doing them. Most importantly, the book proffered diverse solutions that would help even the most unrepentant procrastinator reconsider his ways.

There were so many tips and strategies for overcoming this bad habit that I found something that worked for me. Just like the book prescribed, I finally took a good long look at myself and understand why I usually put things off till later. It usually was because I assumed I had more time to do it later and then ended up doing other mundane things. Last minute rushing became the norm for me and this caused me to hand in hastily put together reports at work. If I wasn’t late to an event, I was just in the nick of time.

By valuing my time more and prioritizing my tasks to the earlier part of the day which I decided was my most productive and active time of the day, I have been able to achieve more tasks than I used to in the past. I can say this book has improved my personal and work life.

Very very helpful book, in helping me deal with my arthritis which I can sincerely say has reduced the symptoms by a massive amount and also helped with extra mobility.

I liked that it was advice that anyone could easily implement and not the unrealistic and expensive advice some books contain. All very simple and easy to follow and most importantly it worked. Do be patient tho, some of the things took a week or two to start seeing the benefits.

Highly recommended.

Any additional comments?

Some call it extreme shyness. Some call it social anxiety. Whatever it is, it is horrible and can effect every part of your life. For me it did. Especially at work. Work was the worst. It made me quit two good jobs and want to quit my current job before i finally reached out and tried to get help - which is when i was recommended this book.

I am not perfect, i still get scared in certain situations but things like meetings, work parties, awkward conversations, small talk, phone chats etc etc are now MASSIVELY better. Overall it has had a huge positive effect on my life, for which i will always be grateful.

What made the experience of listening to Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment and Regret the most enjoyable?

That the advice actually worked. I am bored of books that just contains a lot of medical nonsense or advice that is hard to implement into your life - this book was definitely different.

Have you listened to any of Sorrel Brigman’s other performances? How does this one compare?

First time, but thought her narration (and the production of the audiobook in general) was excellent!

Any additional comments?

This book helped me deal with a lot of issues and a, at times, overwhelming feeling of general unhappiness and discontent.

Fantastically realistic and up to date. Very impressed and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Where does How to Talk to Anyone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Up with one of the best, definitely!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Moved me in the sense that it made me believe (and finally see the results) that I can get better in dealing with situations.

Any additional comments?

Social situations have ALWAYS been difficult for me. Some days are worse than others. Sometimes its just mild shyness and sometimes its quite crippling social anxiety. This helped me a lot. I picked up so much genuine advice, that really helped me. I am so much better already, especially when dealing with social situations at work.

What made the experience of listening to Self-Esteem: Fast Proven Treatment for Recovery from Low Self-Esteem the most enjoyable?

The narration was excellent, which made the points and advice so much easier to implement into my daily life.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Cry a lot, but in the best possible way - as I knew i was hearing things that would FINALLY start to make me feel better.

Any additional comments?

Very very good book. The best book I have heard or read in this genre by a long long way. I have been dealing with esteem / happiness / (even depression) issues most of my life. Something felt lacking. I found social situations difficult. I felt undervalued. Relationships, work and all the other things people take for granted were difficult for me.

I got this book a month ago and it has sincerely changed my life for the better in so many ways. I liked that the advice it gave was PRACTICAL and easy to implement into my daily life. You do have to work at it and nothing happens overnight but I really did start to feel better immediately upon starting to listen to this book. I was not alone anymore.

10/10.

Realistic
Fast

What was one of the most memorable moments of Panic Attacks & Anxiety?

Not really one moment, just the knowledge that this awful affliction CAN be beaten. Not overnight and not immediately, but very fast things can be turned around.

Which character – as performed by Jennifer Dorr – was your favourite?

Huh? No characters in this book, it is not fiction!
However, I really did enjoy her narration, I thought it was excellent.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Right from the start it moved me, as i felt i was actually getting good practical advice for once.

Any additional comments?

VERY good book. I have gone though a lot of books in this genre and most of them read like medical journals or they are all so so fluffed out with nonsense I dont need.

I needed fast acting practical advice I could easily and realistically implement and that is exactly what I got from this. Was I completely cured after one listen? Of course not! BUT, i did begin to feel better almost immediately and by repeatedly following the advice in this book I am finally almost completely rid of panic attacks and my anxiety is a lot less.

Fantastic book and one I cannot recommend highly enough, especially given its cheap price.
