Highly recommended novel by a writer that deserves more recognition. Simon Vance, with his usual excellent narration adds to the enjoyment and entertainment of this superb novel that is very well written with many diverse characters and a masterful evocation of their social and historical context. Thank you Anthony Powell and Simon Vance.
Yes, as we need to prepare for death while we still have health and are relatively free from the pain & suffering that often accompany the process of dying.
Robert Thurman's Liberation Upon Hearing in the Between: Living with the Tibetan Book of the Dead and Sogyal Rinpoche's The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying both of which are essential listening for those interested in how Tibetan Buddhism can help us deal with death & dying.
Yes, but you will need to listen to it repeatedly to gain the maximum benefit as the book (13 hrs and 48 mins) contains a great deal of valuable information and insights
I hope Audible makes available as Audio Books more Tibetan Buddhist classics for those who are blind or have other visual handicaps. Thank you to Andrew Holecek, the narrators and Audible for making these precious teachings available on audio.
This book (well written & narrated) is worthy to be ranked, with Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything and Science Matters by James Trefil & Robert M Hazen, as amongst the best science books for the layman. I highly recommend all 3 and request that Audible provide more titles by Michio Kaku.
I cannot imagine a better narrator, for this great book, than Neville Jason. I read it 3 times before hearing it read by NJ and I cannot praise it too highly - his narration adds a new dimension to the experience of this masterpiece. I wish Audible would make all Tolstoy's and Dostoyevsky's books available - must be read by NJ.
Thank you too Tolstoy, Neville Jason & Audible.
