Brilliantly funny, Louise Rennison’s reads her fourth book ‘Dancing in my nuddy pants’."Yeah… a snogging fest.""Sacré bleu!"Jas looked like she was thinking which is a) unusual and b) scary.I said, "But then this weird thing happened. He had his hands on my waist, standing behind me.""Oo-er…" "D-accord. Anyway, I turned round and he sort of leaped out of the way like two short leaping things.""Was he dancing?""No… I think he was frightened of being knocked out by my nunga-nungas…"Then we both laughed like loons on loon tablets (i.e. A LOT). Enjoy the vair hilarious exploits of Georgia and her pals in this special bumper 2-in-1 edition. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Louise Rennison.

We've all heard this line before: "You better kill me dead, if you don't, I'll be back."That's exactly what Tim said to these men that were terrorizing the town he was raised in. These three brothers Dave, Tom and Jack were the most hated in the town of Hattiesfield. Somehow these brothers didn't have anything better to do like have a job. They were always drinking heavily and getting into fights with the men in town because they would flirt with their women and carry it just a little too far.One day when Tim was driving home a car pulled up right beside him and one of the men rolled down his passenger side window and said "Hey Tim do you want a race?"Tim replied "Not interested.""Are you chicken;" asked Jack, one of the passengers in Tom's car."No! Why don't you guys leave me alone!"; exclaimed Tim. The men started laughing and calling Tim chicken. Tom decided to play chicken with Tim so he slowed the car down, and got behind Tim's car, and tapped his bumper several times. Tim started driving faster, but Tom wasn't about to let up on the chase. Tim finally lost control of his vehicle and his car went off into the ditch and caught on fire. Tom pulled his car over and all three men got out of the car and pulled Tim from his burning car.Tim said "Thanks! I was almost a dead man."Jack said "Did you really think we pulled you out of your burning car to save your life. We only pulled you out because we're going to whoop your ass!?Tim replied "Why?"Dave chimed in as he took a swig of beer and said "We like terrorizing this town." Then Dave started kicking Tim in his side. Tim moaned and said "You better kill me dead or I'll be back!"Dave, Tom and Jack just laughed as they popped the tops of their beer cans and beat him severely. Before Tim passed out and finally took his last breath he said "I'll be back, mark my words." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael A. Adashefski.

Smart people do dumb things. Here's the proof: How much money would you have right now if I gave you the ability to unwind any three financial decisions you have ever made? Years ago, after suffering a humiliatingly large dumb tax, it dawned on me that I have a seemingly unlimited ability to hit unforced errors and sabotage my business and financial success. I suspect you do, too. It turns out that the key to getting rich (and staying that way) is to avoid doing stupid things. I don't need to do more smart things. I just need to make fewer dumb mistakes. The vast majority of our dumb tax is a direct result of emotional, overly optimistic, and poorly thought out decisions. Every one of those three decisions you would love to unwind was an avoidable mistake. Thinking is critical to sustainable success in business; said another way, business is an intellectual sport. The principles and structure suggested in The Road Less Stupid will enable anyone, regardless of the size of the business, the currency, or the industry, to run their business more effectively, make more money, and dramatically increase the likelihood of keeping that money. It all hinges on Thinking Time. This is a business book for business listeners who want to learn the principles and strategies of making great decisions and minimizing risk. The structure of Thinking Time will enable you to minimize reacting emotionally and defaulting to the most obvious "best idea" available in the moment. The series of short chapters and subsequent Thinking Time questions are designed to maximize clarity and create better choices...either of which will result in fewer stupid mistakes. This is the real "secret": The chance of success goes up when you think, plan, consistently execute the right things, and worry about the possibility of loss. Here it is on a bumper sticker: Operators react and sweat. Owners think and plan. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Keith J. Cunningham.
