    What if you could profoundly change your life just by becoming more mindful of your breathing? According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, you can. What if "paying attention on purpose and non-judgmentally" could improve your health? Again, according to Dr. Kabat-Zinn, it can.

    "terrible narration"
    Overall

    Usually I'm a big fan of the author narrating their book because they can convey their excitement about the topic and stress the things they see as most important. With this one however I didn't make it past the 10 minutes mark. The narrator/author makes an overly soft-spoken attempt at ethereal enlightenment that is really just the whispered condescension of someone who doesn't like kids talking to a 5 year old. I felt like I was in a really, really bad and stereotypical yoga class. If Saturday Night Live did a spoof on these types of books this is exactly the narration they would use.

  • FREE: The Future of a Radical Price

    The New York Times best-selling author heralds the future of business in Free. In his revolutionary best seller, The Long Tail, Chris Anderson demonstrated how the online marketplace creates niche markets, allowing products and consumers to connect in a way that has never been possible before. Now, in Free, he makes the compelling case that, in many instances, businesses can profit more from giving things away than they can by charging for them.

    "Fascinating"
    Overall

    I probably never would have read this book in print form but listening to the author read it is completely different. It's fascinating.
