5.0 out of 5 stars The NEW 'Big Book', April 2 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
"Within these pages lies a $50,000 five-star treatment that works" but the pages are read to you, word for word. That's what unabridged means. Great for long periods of time behind the wheel - sober of course, to remind you why you are interested in this book in the first place.

Look for other reviews about the book to get a feel of what's in it, as the content is exactly the same - or better yet, just buy the book or this audio version. You've probably spent more than that on your substance of choice in any given week anyways. Or buy both the book and the audio version and create your own read-along-story book learning environment like you had when you were a kid - just learning to read - because honestly, you are actually learning something again. You are learning how to be sober.

The language in here is very easy to read and structured in a flow of information that will gradually sink in. If all AA groups and literature adopted Dr. Harry Haroutunian's version of the 12 Steps as a new, modern, interpretation for consideration, I feel that in and of itself would serve as a profound break through in sober thinking for newcomers. From Chapter 5 of the book, Track 8, 00:00 of the cd: 'STEP ONE: "There is a power that wants to kill me." … STEP TWO: "There is a power that wants me to live" … STEP THREE: "Do I want to live or die?" ' Good luck!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mine Looked Perfect, Sept. 3 2013

Arrived as expected. Very pleased. As long as it lasts outdoors now, I will be very happy. Noticed other review said theirs arrived with peeling paint but mine looked perfect. A little darker than the picture looks on my monitor but it looks good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks cool, But..., Nov. 22 2010

It makes your phone thicker. It fits in your hand better but not your pocket. Mine also binds with the slide out qwerty keyboard to the point the number row at the top is non-accessible unless you push a bit harder to click it out. I've since taken it off my LG 2 after having it on for a month and the novelty of the design wore off. It's more fashionable than functional. It'd not have bought one, had someone pointed this out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Makes The World Go Around, Nov. 22 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is one of the best text books on life ever, if you can follow instructions. Whoever you idolize as a great adviser be it Dr. Phil, Oprah, or ... Chuck Norris, this is what they'd tell you about relationships, if they knew how to say it exactly this way. From Lover's, Exs, kids, friends, family, and your neighbor you never liked, this covers ALL relationships in life. I keep having to buy myself a new copy because I end up giving them away hoping the recipient in crisis reads the thing, and follows the rules, to make their lives better. It's that good in my opinion!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction., July 5 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The learning method is great. You load the CD-ROM work files onto your Hard Drive and follow the instructions step by step without having to minimize and move a Help window around, as you would be if you were trying to learn as such with the in-program Help files. But as you progress through the lessons you realize how much you're just being handed pre-set-up layers and other work and pushed like a S.P.E.D. kid through the book.

Just be fore-warned that this isn't a tell-all, read-once book and in its defense it tells you that in the introduction, which you clearly read after you've bought it. Also be fore-warned that if you are considering ordering this book with a copy of Photoshop, together in the mail, eageerly awaiting their arrival, you are going to be suprised to learn that for registering your product with Adobe, the software, Adobe is going to give you a bonus gift. As of this writing a 40% off cover price of this very book is one of those gift options. A month free subscripton to lyndia.com, a video tutorial site Adobe worked with excluisely , is also offered as a gift option, as well as a 24hr pass to lyndia.com on the CD-ROM with this book. (Thought you'd like to know if you were planning on pre-ordering that too.)
