Only Written for Americans - Ignore the rest

What disappointed you about AgeProof?

The early chapters talk extensively about recording personal stats using an App (Google Play & App Store) but unless you are registered in the US - forget it

Has AgeProof turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

Not the narrator that the issue is with

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

sure, many of the strategies and information offered was fine

So Many Misconceptions

When thinking of the change agents of the past Genghis and descendants seemingly have left a remarkable legacy.

This secret history reveals so many misconceptions and misdirections that one has to wonder about the veracity of other commonly held beliefs

Critical thinking vs the road so often taken

When Batman Meets Superman

A tour of challenges, questions and thought provoking ideas structured very persuasively.
His futuristic vision while less likely to materialise since he has expressed to the world still presents trends and directions that resonate. Well told

Châteauneuf du Pape Indeed

If only more books were crafted so elegantly.

The gentleman in the title is so wonderfully complete and the themes and story so beautifully sculptured. I felt delight on every page.

Bravo Mr Towles

I laughed and cried

A surprising shared journey. Great Aussie anecdotes that all ring true.

I have a list of mates that will receive a copy in the coming weeks along with a box of coco pops.

Thanks for the mamories

Classic Bertie and Jeeves

What did you love best about The Code of the Woosters?

Timeless banter and terrific humour. A laugh out loud book that conjures carefree and ridiculous scenarios that easily delights.

What did you like best about this story?

The seamless interplay between Bertie and Jeeves builds as the story unfolds like a slow motion train wreck.

My favourite aspect is Wooster's first person commentary. Even when he cannot recall his exact words in the heat of the action, he still paints a beautifully hyperbolic version of the situation and how a Wooster handles such contingencies.

What about Jonathan Cecil’s performance did you like?

Very satisfying.

If I were to suggest, using a female voice for the female characters could have enhanced some of the characters dialogue

If you could take any character from The Code of the Woosters out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Dinner with Bertie (and his man in the wings) would be a hoot, however Mr Spode's public v private conflicts could offer a different type of banter

Any additional comments?

Great on a plane or simply when you want to escape the ridiculousness of modern life

Golf Sound Effects Only

What disappointed you about Tee and Tour?

Very US focused. Driving Tour maybe, no useful information about Golf Courses

What was most disappointing about Tee and Tour ’s story?

I guess it maybe suitable for some American tourists, but it struck me as condescending. The content was aimed 8 year olds
