  • The Invisible Gorilla: And Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us

    Reading this book will make you less sure of yourself - and thats a good thing. In The Invisible Gorilla, Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons, creators of one of psychology's most famous experiments, use remarkable stories and counterintuitive scientific findings to demonstrate an important truth: Our minds dont work the way we think they do. We think we see ourselves and the world as they really are, but were actually missing a whole lot.

    Story

    This book has done something few books have done for me before - as soon as I had finished a chapter, I thought, "This was the best, most thought-provoking chapter in the book." Then as soon as I had finished the NEXT chapter, I thought the same thing.

    The extent of the authors' research, clear and compelling explanations and real-world examples of the experiences they call "The Illusion of Memory", "The Illusion of Knowledge" and "The Illusion of Cause" has really made me stop and deliberately apply their criteria to many aspects of my life - my memories of events, news stories, urban legends, "expert studies" and the things people say to me, among others. If you're interested in being a student of the truth and having culturally imposed and evolution-based blinders stripped from your eyes, I can't imagine a better point of reference than this.

  • The Language of Archetypes: Discover the Forces that Shape Your Destiny

    Story

    Have you ever felt that your life was guided by larger forces? Unseen but very real energies that influence every direction your life takes? In her renowned work as a medical intuitive, Caroline Myss examined the patterns of hundreds of archetypes that exist in human consciousness, and found that each of us has a "sacred support team" of 12 primary archetypes. Once identified, these archetypes allow you to discover your highest purpose, what she calls your "Sacred Contract".

    Story

    If you like Myss' works, this will not disappoint as it contains great in-depth explorations of the relationship between various aspects of our personalities and the traditional Archetypes that she covers, but be aware this is a live speech rather than an actual reading of a book, which can be fun as there is some audience feedback and interaction, but can also be frustrating as there are times Myss starts to talk about a particular situation or Archetype, but then gets distracted and wanders off elsewhere. If you want a more structured discussion about archetypes, consider reading her "Sacred Contracts" book.

    In terms of performance, I have to confess that the more Myss ages, the more unpleasant I find her voice and mannerisms. The early audios weren't bad, but listening to her here made me want to stab myself in the eye with a pencil. I just had to stop at one point and haven't listened any further. Make sure you listen to the sample first to see if you can handle her voice before you purchase.

  • It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff

    When you think of what it will take to clean your house, are you so overwhelmed you throw up your hands and cry, "It's all too much"? If somewhere along the way you've simply lost the ability to keep your home organized and clutter-free, then It's All Too Much has the solution you've been searching for.

    Ro says: "Most Life-Changing Book I've Read in Years"
    "Concrete, practical advice for the clutter-prone"
    Overall

    I'm a fan of Peter's from his TV show - my mother and I watched it for years. I'm just now addressing the clutter in my home, both mine and my mother's, who died last year. Listening to his explanations of how to evaluate an item, especially about how getting rid of an item someone you loved owned isn't tantamount to dishonoring their memory, freed me to finally donate and throw away ridiculous amounts of stuff I've been holding onto for years. If you can pay attention to his directions and honestly work through your house room by room, you will have a comfortable, clutter-free home that you're proud to show off. Highly recommended.

    Overall

    This audio is entertaining in an Erma Bombeck style but consists almost primarily of vignettes from the author's own life, not the "how to" from the title. Aside from some basic ideas (ask for what you want, take care of yourself first, don't expect men to be mind readers) there's not really anything new here, altho there is the sense it was written for the previous generation of women (who grew up in the 50's and 60's) so this may be new to some of them who were raised in a very traditional manner. It's fun but don't expect to suddenly become the "wise, witty" woman the author suggests.
