    Story
    (3693)

    Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last 15 years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

    "Two creative geniuses, how could they go wrong?"
    Overall

    Since I have a long-standing love for Douglas Adams' works and also admire Stephen Fry as an actor, I naturally had high expectations for this audio book - and was in no way disappointed.

    If you've never heard the original radio show, do yourself a favor and go find it, because there's nothing quite like it; but if you're looking for a straightforward (no sound effects, etc.) yet brilliant (and delightfully British) reading of the book version, this is it.

    I've picked up the H2G2 books many many times when I felt down or needed a chuckle. I'm sure I will listen to this many times too. Money very well spent.

    Even if you only have little time and space, Dahn Yoga Energy Breathing will guide you to discover greater energy, flexibility, stress management, relaxation, pain relief, core strength, and rejuvenation. The 10-page explanatory booklet, gentle guidance from a highly experienced instructor, and inspiring relaxation music will enhance your experience of this transforming integrative body mind training.

    Story

    The name for the exercises is Jung-Choon Breathing (not sure why that's not in the description). Easy to follow. A few basic poses to be held for some minutes, with a focus on the breath and energy gathering/movement. Starts out with gentle warm-up and joint rotations.

    I did find the routine energizing and slightly (appropriate for me) challenging. Narration is fine, with focus reminders at intervals. The accompanying booklet is excellent, very clear illustrations.

    The program should not require any prior experience with yoga or other disciplines.

    What do you really want? The good news is that whatever it is, you can have it! The only thing is, attaining it is going to be a lot easier than you think and more fun than you can imagine! This is because the universe operates on the principle of Effortless Success: When you get really clear and honest about what you want, everything in the world conspires to help you get it.

    "Kind, inspiring, motivating"
    Overall

    I look for three things in self-help books: They should make me feel good (or at least not worse) while I read them, they should inspire and motivate me to improve my life/attitude, and they should give me some actionable ideas for how to do that. I've put these criteria in that order because I've found that if a book makes me feel worse about myself or puts me off from the outset, I'm not going to benefit from anything else it has to say.
    Effortless Success succeeded in all three ways for me. The content and narration is friendly and gently humorous, it gave me some worthwhile ideas, and it suggested simple exercises that I could put to use immediately. This without being either too woo-woo (Louise Hay) or too rah-rah (Tony Robbins, to a lesser extent Brian Tracy) - two of my personal turn-offs.
    I've listened to this twice in a week and will doubtless do so again. I only wish it were longer or that Neill turned his other books into audio programs!
