    She is a very good story teller, like sitting and listening to a friend.

    Story

    "Life changes fast....You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends." These were among the first words Joan Didion wrote in January 2004. Her daughter was lying unconscious in an intensive care unit, a victim of pneumonia and septic shock. Her husband, John Gregory Dunne, was dead. The night before New Year's Eve, while they were sitting down to dinner, he suffered a massive and fatal coronary. The two had lived and worked side by side for nearly 40 years.

    Story
    (1451)

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    What would have made Proof of Heaven better?

    if the author did not have a huge ego and want to talk about where his family members worked (both biological & adopted). Between listening to him ramble on about degrees/titles etc you have to listen in GREAT detail about his sickness and how SPECIAL and UNIQUE it was.


    What could Eben Alexander have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    To actually talk about life on the other side more than he did....I think the amount of time spend on the actual subject of the book could have fit into one chapter...


    What aspect of Eben Alexander’s performance would you have changed?

    I would not have bought this book and given money for something that it not worth the paper its written opn


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    extreme disappointment, anger when I thought about the author just wanting to jump on the Life after Death bandwagon...

    Dr. Keith Ablow, best-selling author and host of the new daily one-hour daytime-TV talk show, shows how ignoring painful memories and experiences can negatively affect every aspect of our lives. He presents strategies to help listeners transform the pain of the past into the power of the future. Living the Truth is as comforting and rewarding as it is transformative.

    In this audio, best-selling author Marianne Williamson delves deeply into the powerful role of change in our lives today. Far from something to fear and avoid, she says, every change, even the most difficult and painful, gives us an opportunity to receive the miraculous gift of personal transformation into what we are capable of becoming. The only real failure in life is the failure to grow from what we go through.

    Catarina says: "Amazing wisdom"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, The author/narrator needs to slow down. She may need to consider having someone else narrate her books because she always speaks to fast.


    What three words best describe Marianne Williamson’s performance?

    SLOW down so we can listen, hear and absorb your good books


    Was The Gift of Change worth the listening time?

    Yes

    In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer takes a look at current events, reminding us that no matter how "bad" the news is, we can bring peace to our own lives. He goes on to discuss "visionary consciousness", mentioning several examples of individuals who have had an abundance of it; for example, Mohandas Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela, and Martin Luther King, Jr. All of these incredible role models were able to change the world nonviolently.

    Where does Making Contact with the Other Side rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    this was very good and I would recommend it. While the description states it would show you how to contact your guides etc. this was more like a lecture on Sylvia and her spirit guide. That withstanding, this was very entertaining and showed what a great story teller she is. Her personality really comes out in this.


    What about Sylvia Browne’s performance did you like?

    Loved her performance! She was witty and funny.


    If you could give Making Contact with the Other Side a new subtitle, what would it be?

    A hilarious evening with Sylvia Browne


    Any additional comments?

    while it really didn't accomplish what the description stated, I still really enjoyed htis.
