  • "Happy I listened."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I consider myself to be a happy person. In fact, I would say I'm perhaps the happiest person I know. And the reason is, without knowing it, I follow many of the ideas in this book. So, as a reader, and a happy person, I have to give it my endorsement.

    (An aside: I do not agree with the author on everything. His quasi-deist ideology is a little thin and fuzzy for my liking. I would have preferred a theological argument of a little more weight and depth. But I will say this: the reviewer who said that this book contains atheistic ideas is utterly wrong. Beck does (spoiler alert) believe in some kind of god or higher power. Atheism is the belief that no such power exists. Apparently the reviewer has a rather narrow view of what atheism actually is. To her, it appears that any world view that is not christianity is atheism. Not so.)

    I read this book after reading one of Beck's books on alcohol (see my profile and past reviews for info on that book). It helped me greatly. Some of the material in this book is lifted from the book on alcohol, but it only represents around 20% of the total content. Overall, the rest of the content has value and is worth listening to. But this duplication of effort did contribute to a loss of a fifth star in my review.

    One other reason for four stars instead of five: I was hoping that this book contained some hypnotherapy and relaxation tracks as the book on alcohol does. It does not, but I feel the reader could really benefit from such tracks in an effort to reshape the subconscious and quell the ego with the goal in mind of overcoming the limitations of the conscious mind. At the very least these audio meditations could have been very enjoyable and affirming. I felt a slight bit cheated out of that opportunity.

    In short, Beck is onto something here. Anyone who wishes to be truly happy can take a step closer to that goal by listening to the book. This will likely not be the last Craig Beck audio book I purchase.

    "I just want to be happy," a simple goal expressed as though it were the very least we could expect of life. Some phrase it differently, and some attach requirement or specifics to the statement by pre-deciding how happiness must be packaged. Nonetheless it sounds so reasonable an expectation and yet for some reason so many people spend an entire lifetime unable to reach or even discover the first step on the path to this universal desire. Many believe that this illusive state would be possible if they could only win the lottery, inherit great wealth....

    Maybe I've been saturated with information from the field of learning, performance, potential, brain function and mechanics, but almost everything in this book was not news to me. Still, it is well written and organized and some of the anecdotes and examples are worth hearing again. I would have chosen a less announcer-y narrator of this book, but that's a nit that probably isn't worth picking.

    Story

    Well, I bought this book at an audible's promotion but I don't think it was worth the money. The author has no substance, has attachment problems, is egocentric (he writes that he saved Wall Street, and the world, by giving chocolate to brokers) and the theme wonders and wonders and doesn't arrive nowhere.
    Run away from this book. Choose yourself and listen to any other book out there.

    Story

    Some minutes within the story I thought I was reading a Robert Greene's book, because there were many great characters from the past, with the same paced rhythm. In the end Ryan Holiday explains that Robert Greene is his mentor and it all made sense.
    Overall, it is a good book. I don't think it is practical one, but the author says it is.
    I didn't give it a five star because the last hour and a half it is a podcast between the author and Tim Ferris, the author of 4 hour workweek.
    I am eager to listen to Ryan Holiday next book.

    I learned about Ben Carson by watching the great movie "Gifted Hands". His mother was married when she was 13 to a pastor, was a semi-illiterate woman, who discovered that her husband had another wife, ran away with her 2 small children and worked as a maid, many times in 2-3 jobs, and barely made it. When Ben, the younger kid, was in 5th grade, he was semi-illiterate himself, his best grade was a "D", couldn't do math and everyone made fun of him. Suddenly, his mother cut the TV time and made them read 2 books a week. This was the turning point to Ben and his brother. Ben Carson became the best in his class, graduated in Medicine from Yale University and went to the field of Neurosurgery in Johns Hopkins where he became the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery when he was only 33....
    An excellent man, a superachiever. Read/ listen to the book and feel inspired.

  • "Stillness and inner peace!!!"

    8 of 8 helpful votes

    This book is transforming, was on my second round with Power of Now, but this book puts it in a condensed sections of where it breaks it down to meaningful sessions that are provoking. The exercises he has you do help you to be still and reach inside to your inner body and helps you to let go of the thinking pattern going on. each session I am able to reach more of more of awakening! I find myself going hours of the Non thinking mind if I am not working. It is very refreshing and brings peace and calm in your every day life. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to be free from negative and bad behaviors, such as depression, anxiety, moodiness, all sorts of illnesses. I was in a state of deep depression when I started my journey and now I no longer identify myself by my past or from what others think of me, that is none of my business! Its great to have that freedom! it has even made changes to our lovely cat Buddy. he is much calmer and more affectionate around me.

Talk One: "Jesus: Forgiving Victim, Transforming Savior". If we imitate the way Jesus lived the role of victim, we will be able to live the Christian mystery. Jesus suffers freely but does not pass on the pain. He forgives, which destroys the death that confronts us. He says, “No one else is your problem. You are the locus of conversion and transformation.”

Talented bohemian iconoclasts with careers in the worlds of music, film, fashion, and publishing, they are untypically frank and outspoken as they debunk the myths about what it means to be a French woman today.

Every morning we are greeted with a long list of to-dos: get the kids up and out the door on time, have a meaningful quiet time, put in a full day at the office, spend an hour at the gym, prepare a healthy and delicious meal (organic and locally grown, of course), and make sure the sink sparkles before you go to bed. Oh, and don’t forget to look great and smile while you’re doing it.
