Improve Your Conversations teaches you how to use the ingenious framework from improv comedy and apply it directly to your everyday social interactions and conversations...and can't we learn something from the greatest improv comedians in the world, like Tina Fey and Will Ferrell? Improv comedy and memorable conversations have almost everything in common, from their premise to what makes them great to their end goals.

There are two schools of thought for encouraging babies to sleep through the night: the hotly debated Ferber technique of letting the baby "cry it out", or the grin-and-bear-it solution of getting up from dusk to dawn as often as necessary. If you don't believe in letting your baby cry it out, but desperately want to sleep, there is now a third option, presented in Elizabeth Pantley's sanity-saving audiobook The No-Cry Sleep Solution.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This book will obviously be downloaded by frustrated parents hoping to find a solution on how they can help their baby sleep at night. The book drags on and and provides background stories about other mums and their testimonials, then more fluff.. blah blah.. I wish it would have just gotten to the point. I lost interest after awhile. There are a few good points but nothing ground breaking.

Once every 1,000 years, a great adventure comes along. This is the blockbuster historical thriller from bestselling author James Patterson.Freedom - in eleventh-century France, it is a luxury enjoyed by only the King and nobility. For the serf, it is surely worth fighting for. But is it worth dying for? Arriving home disillusioned from the Crusades, Hugh DeLuc discovers his village has been ransacked and his wife abducted.

If you could sum up The Jester in three words, what would they be?

I was slow to start with, but you soon get hooked and cant get enough. I found the characters and description excellent, and storey telling was fantastic. wish there were more novels like this one.
