It´s been a year since their last outing. Brian, Ethel, and Father Frederick are back with more village idiocy. Frederick has injured his nipples in a vicious moped accident whilst on his honeymoon and no longer feels like a man. He´s taken up the drink again and is making people´s lives a misery with his antics again. He can´t work out why strange men keep following him while he´s out drink-driving, though. Brian´s concentrating on getting through married life while trying to find a hobby that doesn´t hurt. His cousin Jeff (from The Office Idiot Reviews) has moved in for the summer and is on hand to help Brian with his assertiveness when he is bullied by the local biker, Jock. Ethel has discovered that it was Denny who made her shopping trolley explode last year and with Denny now an adult and living outside the safety of the children´s home, it won´t be long before she exacts the revenge she´s been after. Meanwhile a battle for power is taking place at the manor house. Lord Monty, who ordered his title from the Internet, is in a battle of wills with his gamekeeper, Chopper. It´s a never ending struggle which, time after time, leaves Monty either out of pocket, in pain or soaking wet. Written entirely in the form of product reviews, we guarantee you´ve never listened to a book quite like this before. (Unless you listened to the first one.) Hilarious and wholly original, More Village Idiot Reviews introduces the most bonkers set of countryside dwellers you´ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Dabbs.

Everyone wants to live a life full of meaning, purpose, and success. Yet, you clutter your mind with limiting thoughts of can´t do this, can´t do that, it´s too high, too far, too great to achieve. Divided into two sections, "Subliminal Affirmations" and "Laws of Attraction Guide"; this audiobook will show that your subconscious is the most powerful tool to help alter your life in a positive manner. Negative thoughts are like weeds that grow all the time without any nurturing, since it´s human nature to think of negative consequences. On the other hand, positive thoughts about health, love, wealth, success are hard to come by, and like everything worth fighting for in this life, they require a lot of nurture and care. The audiobook plans to give you exactly what you need: the means to stay positive through constant affirmations designed to help improve oneself, change bad behaviour, or channel the universe to attract good things in your life. Call it meditation or even self-hypnosis, but the principles stated in the audiobook actually work. It is proven that repetitive constructive affirmations attract positive energies in your life, and that desire is the first step towards achievement. Packed with subliminal affirmations, the audiobook shows that in order to attract opportunities that will improve your health, love life, or even wealth, all you need are few minutes a day to shift your mind through positive affirmations. You can choose to repeat them loud and proud, or they can be repeated in your mind during idle times such as while commuting or even while taking a shower. Think positive, be confident and change your life now by taking action and downloading this audiobook. Don´t be a pessimist and navigate away. You can´t achieve any success if your mindset is constantly plagued by negativity. Download this audiobook and improve your life! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Smith.

Delhi exists in a kind of quantum state: In Delhi, all things are true at once. When the Big Apple no longer felt big enough, Dave and Jenny moved to a city of 16 million people and, seemingly, twice that many horns honking at once. Delirious Delhi depicts India´s capital as the two experienced it, from office life in the rising tech hubs to the traffic jam philosophy that keeps people sane in the gridlock leading to them. With only their sense of humour as their guide, Dave and Jenny set out to explore a city in which ancient stone monuments compete with glass-clad shopping malls to define the landscape. What follows is a top-to-bottom snapshot of a city in the thick of loud and accelerating change. Anyone new to Delhi will have their understanding of it magnified by this book. And anyone who already knows Delhi will appreciate this candid tribute to a city that´s everything to everyone at the same time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sanjiv Jhaveri.

A laugh-out-loud collection of original stories, written by the erstwhile New York Times columnist and author of The Town on Beaver Creek. For over a decade, Michelle Slatalla wrote drolly about everything from online shopping to gorilla shoes, in the Style pages of the New York Times. Equal parts Erma Bombeck and Jean Kerr, with just a dash of Shirley Jackson, she peered into every corner of her life - then investigated her three daughters, husband and and her dogs, mainly because she needed the money. Now the editor and founder of the immensely popular blog, Gardenista, she needs the money more than ever. Hence this compendium of never-told anecdotes about her life in Northern California. In Wife, Mother, Worker, Spy, you´ll learn: Dirty tricks to help your kid become class president in fifth grade. What to do when your child says she wants a tattoo for her 16th birthday. How to get out of it if your food hospitalizes an allergic dinner party guest. How to stop your daughters from stealing your clothes. What it was like being the world´s worst cheerleader. What to do when a live rat crashes your elegant cocktail party. How to fight your own neighborhood association. How to beat an octogenarian at tennis. And that´s just in the intro. 1.
