  • The Power of Now

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By Eckhart Tolle
    • Narrated By Eckhart Tolle
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

    Kosmas says: "I'm so glad I got this book!"
    "A modern serving of Basic Sanity."

    As a Buddhist, I find an amazing parallel between the teachings of Tolle and the basic sanity of Buddhism. Thanks to Tolle, I now understand why the glimpses into reality that I have experienced have always faded and not lead to lasting peace - my mind incorporated them into my 'story'.

    Thanks to this reminder, I feel like I am embarking on a spiritual journey that has been sidelined for a very long time by my identification with my mind and my story as it is expressed through past and future. Although much of the wisdom expressed in this book has been expressed before, at least one new concept, that of the 'Pain Body', is both new (to me) and very useful.

    This book is very inspiring. After years of confusion and procrastination, Tolle's 'Power of Now' has compelled me to begin my spiritual practice 'now'.

  • Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money - That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs)
    • By Robert T. Kiyosaki, Sharon L. Lechter
    • Narrated By Stephen Hoye

    People learn to work for money...but never to have money work for them. That's what Robert Kiyosaki says in this guide about what rich dads tell their children that poor dads do not. Browse all Rich Dad titles.

    TomD says: "Good starter"
    "I loved this book."

    For quite some time now I've realized that no matter how much money I make per hour, I can still only work so many hours a week; this is a serious limitation to one's personal financial power.

    Kiyosaki has put into theory what I believe many of us have sensed about the world of work, and that is the fact that hard work is not enough. I grew up with the subconscious belief that a) money is for spending, and that b) as soon as you can 'afford' something (and perhaps even before you can afford it), you should buy it.

    Until this book, I never really realized that I could use my money to create wealth. I never realized the difference between true assets and true liabilities. I've always felt that the financial game was 'rigged' and that the little guy could just never make it. Now I feel that, with a few of the groundrules spelled out, I have a chance.

    Now for the actual book. Kiyosaki sometimes seems to ramble on by telling anecdotal stories of conversations between himself and his 'Rich Dad', but upon subsequent listenings to the book, some of the rambling made more sense. The ramblings seem to apply now where they hadn't before. Perhaps it's because this book actually makes you look at your situation and world differently that you had. You see opportunities that might have escaped you before. It is fuzzy on the details; there are no specific stock strategies or legal or accounting strategies. If you're looking for a get-rich-quick scheme this book is not for you.

    All in all, I'd say this book has been fundamental in changing for the better the way in which I approach money. That alone is worth the cover price.

  • Living the Liberated Life and Dealing with the Pain-Body

    • ORIGINAL (2 hrs and 49 mins)
    • By Eckhart Tolle
    • Narrated By Eckhart Tolle

    More spoken wisdom from the best selling author of The Power of Now. Warmly shared, in the authentic voice that has brought him international acclaim, here is Eckhart Tolle's simple and profound gift to us, at a time when our world needs it most.

    C. W. Sandberg says: "A great adjunct to 'Power of Now'."
    "A great adjunct to 'Power of Now'."

    This book is one of two 'realtime' audiobooks that I have by Tolle. If you've listened to PON, you may be surprised by these books, not because of a difference of message, but because Tolle's speaking here is so alive and, yes, 'present'. The other interesting thing to note is his sense of humor.

    Although PON is a wonderful book, these 'live' recordings capture a much more playful Tolle.
