Jeff Yeager is not a brilliant audiobook reader... or is he? The premise of this very funny and practical book is that your quality of life increases as your spending decreases. Following one of his book's main edicts (“Do for yourself what you could have others do for you.”), Yeager steps up to the microphone and learns a new skill. His reading is not particularly polished, but this turns out to be his greatest strength. A natural comedian with a warm and enthusiastic Midwestern voice, Yeager is not only the author of the book; he is its main character. Listeners immediately feel they are getting useful back-fence advice from a wise next-door neighbor, who could be channeling Groucho Marx. He establishes a direct connection with listeners, who will find themselves slaying their Enoughasauruses with smiles on their faces. Simultaneous release with the Broadway hardcover (Reviews, Dec. 3). (Jan.)
