    Present moment awareness is an essential ingredient in life if one expects to experience any degree of authentic peace and contentment. It has been acknowledged for centuries as the cornerstone of spiritual awakening in all traditions of Eastern thought. In the West, however, it is still a relatively unrecognized concept for living. The Western mind is always restless, never content with the moment.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    For those interested in Mindfulness and Self awareness this is a must. I've been listening to this audiobook constantly since I downloaded it. It's that good.
    It's a short book. Each chapter is very clear, with a good balance between the idea proposed and examples.
    I liked the narration a lot too.

    Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory's Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to...somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion's song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis, before they finally return home.

    "Reading Order"
    Overall

    I must disagree with the previous reviewers who stated the order according to which the books should be read. Although it is the chronological order, it is not the order the author intended the books to be read. And, in fact, reading The Magician's Nephew first spoils much of the reading.
    The proper order to reading the books should be:

    1 - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
    2 - Prince Caspian
    3 - The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
    4 - The Silver Chair
    5 - The Horse and His Boy
    6 - The Magician's Nephew
    7 - The Last Battle

    Great books and narrations.
    Thank you Audible!
