    Who was Rumi, and how does he continue to speak to us today? On Song of the Sun, Andrew Harvey, the Oxford-trained authority on Rumi and author of several modern spiritual classics, takes us inside the extraordinary life and teachings of this prophet and poet. Harvey sifts through the many legends and tales associated with Rumi's life to reveal a rich and inspiring portrait of what a human being in love with and empowered by God can become. He mines the thousands of odes and quatrains composed by Rumi, and shares the most sumptuous and ecstatic works, all with clear relevance to our spiritual lives today. At a time when we are hungry for a divine vision of our world as it can be - and should be - Song of the Sun is an invitation to Rumi's most sacred and glorious feast.

    Overall

    I'm totally happy with having purchased this audio book.

    Rumi is/was new to me. Fascinating biography, fantastic poetry and cleary the author, who doubles as the presenter is both knowledgable and in love with his subject.

    Other reviewers seem to have had problems withe delivery/speech pattern of the author. I can only put it down to his English accent, though for me his joy for the subject radiates on the recording and brings the emotionality of the subject to the fore.

    A winner!

    Learning Italian Like Crazy was developed to teach everyday conversational Italian. Unlike many other Italian courses, Learning Italian Like Crazy teaches you how to speak everyday conversational Italian as opposed to textbook or formal Italian. This course will take the student from beginner to intermediate level. The course is all audio.

    "Excellent course"
    Overall

    am a big fan of Michel Thomas though recognize not so good for building vocabulary. This seems to combine the vocab of Pimsleur (but much quicker) and the grammar of Michel Thomas - a winner.
    Two criticisms - think cheaper or get more stuff free buying directlty than through Audible, plus the second set of lessons 6-10 seems to have the transcript for the Spanish course not this Italian one.

    Stop marketing at people! Turn your ideas into epidemics - ideaviruses - by helping your customers do the marketing for you. So says Info Age marketing guru Seth Godin.

    Amazon Customer says: "Idea Virus"
    "Not a bad idea - but not at Viral Stage Yet"
    Overall

    A good "idea" but not at Viral stage, at least yet.

    Why?

    Examples are fairly shallow, limited to those which are primarily about e-buisness anyway, and the style of presentation fails to capture the excite that is likely to gnerate much word-of-mouth from listener/reader to anyone else.
