    Story

    Really enjoyed this book. As I go about simplifying my life, I find myself repeating key phrases such as "like with like" and "the thing is not the person". I even lecture myself on returning things to their designated homes when I get careless.

    In a fulsome act of disorganization, I soon discovered that I had already read this book about a year ago, but continued with the audible version anyway, and quickly found that I had overlooked much valuable material during my first go-round. As I am already a fairly well-organized person, I had scanned or skipped whole pages during my first reading, figuring that certain sections did not apply to me. Arrogant fool. During the audible version, I discovered that every chapter contains valuable information.

    I lost my husband to cancer 3 years ago and letting go of his belongings has been a difficult process. When I was ready, I donated most of his clothing; then I threw out university papers and essays, etc., the accoutrements of a life that were once significant but not particularly personally valuable. For the smaller yet somehow bigger things, author Mellen's advice helps me as I continue to struggle with memories such as theatre ticket stubs, stacks of photographs, his bedroom slippers, his e-mail address. I'm filing and organizing the treasures, discarding the duplicates or the unlovely photos in which my butt does indeed look big, and handing off special items to his family, who I know will value them. In a truly heartbreaking moment, I was forced to throw out the cards, love notes, and other special paper mementoes that I had temporarily stored in a plastic box. In the basement. Too late came Mellen's warning never to store paper-based valuables in the basement. These precious treasures were coated in black mould when I opened the box, and they could not be salvaged. I can only console myself with Mellen's observation that the thing is not the person.

    Mellen's delivery is perfectly suited to the material, and he manages to inject humour into the narrative with a pause here and a little emphasis there. Well done.

    I will keep the slippers.

morton's greatest hits:
  • Expect Miracles

    "Such an inspiration!"

    Overall

    I'm a big fan of Joe Vitale and this audio didn't disappoint. He never fails to inspire in a direct, yet entertaining way. Vitale points out the pain we find in our lives, tells us how to work through it and then shows us how to see and experience the miracles all around us. Why not focus your intent and let the miracles happen!

  • The Key: The Missing Secret for Attracting Anything You Want

    "The way to unlimited success!"

    Overall

    Joe Vitale, a major contributor to “the Secret,” goes beyond it to reveal the way to health, wealth, success and happiness. Great for anyone who knows they can achieve more but isn’t, as he points out the unconscious limitations that are holding us back and offers practical advice on how to get more out of life. Vitale tells how to end self-sabotage and “counter-intentions” that prevent us from reaching our full potential and shows us the way to achieve unlimited success. He makes complex issues easy to understand and gives the tools needed to really change your life. I’m a big fan of his ideas and practical wisdom. The key to success really does lie inside this audio book…and inside each of us as well. It’s a perfect gift for people of any age.

  • Transitions: Making Sense of Life's Changes

    "Empowering for anyone going through a transition!"

    Overall

    From the most trusted voice on transition, I can see why this was a National Bestseller. This empowering audio offers strategies for coping with the difficult, painful, and confusing times in life - and don't we all have those! This is a great audio to give to anyone you know who is going through uncertainty and change.

  • The Winner's Brain: 8 Strategies Great Minds Use to Achieve Success

    "A Life Changing Audio"

    Overall

    This is one of those audio books that you can't put down. It's expertly written and filled with great strategies that can change your life. I loved the interviews with people like Whoopi Goldberg, BB King, and other wide ranging, engaging personalities. People are not defined as winners because of monetary or athletic success. The science behind the program, combining psychology with neuroscience spelled out in practical and accessible language, makes it possible for anyone to learn to use the remarkable power of our brains and achieve success in life.

    ✦ Win people to your way of thinking

    8. Use encouragement. Make the fault seem easy to correct.
    9. Make the other person happy about doing the thing you suggest.

    More than 30 years ago, Dr. Ronald R. Fieve gained national recognition for his pioneering treatment of what was then known as "manic-depression". Since then, he has focused on patients with mild bipolarity, also known as Bipolar II. With the right treatment, these patients can turn their illness into an asset. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Fieve presents a highly successful program that allows Bipolar II patients to harness the creativity and energy of their hypomanic "highs" while minimizing the potentially devastating "lows" of depression.
