This is a book about discovering what we really need. There are a lot of second-best options, but we weren't made to live a second-best life. Finding what we actually need is different than what we are often offered. There are many books full of opinions, steps and programs. This isn't one of them. This is about craving the things that matter. Things that don't just work, but last.

Great to hear Marie’s perspective on the life of the Goff’s. Sensitive and subtle comparison to Bobs colourful and bodacious stories. Some absolutely lovely one liners and the chapter on gardening was beautiful!

Then it teaches the listener how to rewrite the patterns in the mind. It closes with the key steps of recovery.

helpful and good things said but so short it's basically useless. The same content is available as a comprehensive and guided journey in other books.

Are you a Christian man looking to be free from your regular use of pornography? Shame and self-hatred are terrible motivators for transformation. There must be a better way to outgrow our unhealthy dependence on pornography. Religious communities often fall short engaging pornography in a meaningful way, quality resources are scarce. We must strip away the sexuality of our porn use, face the complexity of our own sexual development and stories head-on. We must get beneath to what is driving our hunger to use women as objects of our pleasure, and learn how to honor not objectify.

The Porn Myth is a non-religious response to the commonly held belief that pornography is a harmless or even beneficial pastime. Author Matt Fradd draws on the experience of porn performers and users, and the expertise of neurologists, sociologists, and psychologists to demonstrate that pornography is destructive to individuals, relationships, and society. He provides insightful arguments, supported by the latest scientific research, to discredit the fanciful claims used to defend and promote pornography.

Extremely well thought out. Covers a large range of topics and arguments around porn and it’s validity. Excellent introductory resource for sufferers, parents and councillors. Would make a great companion to Kevin Skinner or recovery guide books.

Such an awesome book. Opened my mind and heart to a way of viewing human history and colonisation that is liberating and encouraging. What a fantastic way to come against bigotry and racism particularly in western societies. I'm so interested to read more from this field of historical science.

In Amy Poehler's highly anticipated first book, Yes Please, she offers up a big juicy stew of personal stories, funny bits on sex and love and friendship and parenthood and real life advice (some useful, some not so much).Powered by Amy's charming and hilarious, biting yet wise voice, and including a star-studded guest list of vocal appearances.

Wonderful and friendly listen. If you're already a fan of Poehler you will know how her giddy performances are winning in a way that makes you feel like you know her personally. Listening to this book will make you feel like she is your dear friend. it's a delightful trick she pulls unintentional and calculated. She confesses to nerding out over meeting and being real life friends with her pop culture heroes and I think her hope was to satisfied her unreachable nerd fans with a paperback D&M as real life is too time poor to meet with each of us for coffee. The story is wandering and at times her comical wisdom is pure genius. The rest of the time I enjoyed the sound of her voice and the tempo of here life lists. I did this, then this, then this which might bore me to read but to listen to such a familiar voice, which I have grown to love, persisting to finish the audio book was easy and joyful.
