    When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

    D says: "Spiritually Uplifting -- and entertaining!"
    "Timeless Truth"

    When I read this book 25 years ago, I fell in love with it. Imagine how excited I was when I found it here on Audible.com. THank you for providing such a foundational piece of work, dealing with many, many topics here on Earth, but above all, LOVE.

    The Narrator has a wise edge to his voice without being overbearing. His Cadance allows the listener to experience the story without getting bored.

    One special thing about this book is that you can begin listening anywhere and the story unfolds in a way that still engages you. Each chapter is a complete story.

    Rich with unforgettable characters and history, intricately plotted and utterly absorbing, City of Dreams is a stirring saga of early Manhattan and the beginnings of medical science told by a master storyteller.

    Diane says: "great book, but abridged ..."
    "More than a City"
    Overall

    This story made my trip to New York absolutely vivid. When I took the boat tour on the river one late afternoon, my mind's eye could see the colony, the people and the early Indians. I was truly able to understand how the characters felt when they saw the shore, the small fort, and the natives.
    As I walked through NYC, I realized the history of this wonderful city and how meaningful it was.
