Foreign voices become dear friends, whispering in my ear. Some last long after the story has ended, heard, then, by all whom I touch.

    Many people feel called to help others and change the world, but they just don’t know how to fulfill their potential. They have the creativity and passion, but often get lost, not knowing how to direct their energies. Now, popular life coach Martha Beck shows how readers can find their calling in service and healing - while realizing their destiny. With a sparkling, compassionate, and often irreverent style, Beck draws from a combination of ancient wisdom and modern science to help readers consciously embrace vital skills that may be embedded in our DNA and are now made accessible again.

    Story

    Martha Beck is one smart and courageous cookie, who I think is ahead of the curve in her predictions. Her writing style is always informative, easy to digest and she's got a great sense of humour. The only bummer for me was that she did not narrate this book. I missed her voice.

    Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells, taken without her knowledge, became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first immortal human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than 60 years.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"

    This is my first Stephen King novel; He's an engaging, effective writer..i listened to the whole million-hour story but after each listen was left feeling glum. Interesting but I
    resented that it was both riveting and upsetting.

    I'm a big fan of the notion that all religions teach similar lessons using different language and customs so the fact that this book is written by a Christian did not make it any less useful or interesting for this Jew.

    When anyone can start a business (when everyone is running their career like a business), it begs a question. This is your one chance at life, you can have anything you want, what is worth doing? Most people don't know why they're doing what they're doing. They imitate others, go with the flow, and follow paths without making their own. They spend decades in pursuit of something that someone convinced them they should want, without realizing that it won't make them happy. Anything You Want is a manifesto about living life, appreciating enough, and doing what matters.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure; maybe someone more turned on by flashy marketing


    Has The Fire Starter Sessions turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Danielle LaPorte?

    probably not


    Any additional comments?

    The ideas presented in this book are borrowed from others but sort of mangled in the process; I'd look to Martha Beck, Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra or others for a more substantive listen.

For almost 50 years, he's been creating some of the most recognizable songs in American rock, but never before has he paused to reflect on the long road he's traveled. Now, he tells the unflinching story of his life, laying bare the unvarnished truth about his wild ride that has spanned across the years.

    Best-selling author and spiritual guide Eckhart Tolle led a remarkable two-day retreat at Findhorn, Scotland, a community on the leading edge of personal and global transformation. His weekend talks, captured on audio, create a deeply moving experience for listeners. Speaking on the subject of stillness, which he describes as a doorway into the Now and to true personal enlightenment, Tolle shows listeners how to find stillness in the present moment and enter a deeper dimension of peace and fulfillment.

    I'd listen to a New Earth or Power of Now first, but Tolle's message is always on point and invaluable.


    What about Eckhart Tolle’s performance did you like?

    His occasional humour
