    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    Neal says: "Funny and Fascinating, A Wonderful Book"
    "satisfying"
    Overall

    I loved this story of this humble man, especially as the pieces slowly came together that suggested why his life was in a holding pattern (based on my limited knowledge of early trauma and family dynamics). The character reminded me a little bit of the main character in The Shipping News. Hats off to Audible for pointing out the genious of McLarty. He's an author with a deft yet subtle, retrained hand. And an excellent reader of his own work.

    Two sisters, small-town Ontario, 1934. Canadian author Richard Wright tells their story, from the ordinary to the extraoridinary with an eye for the commonplace and poignant sense of the larger undercurrents that change people's lives.

    L says: "charming intimate refreshing"
    "like life"
    Overall

    Clara's late-life awakening is a slice of on average life in the 1930's.

    The Art of Profitability reveals the invisible but important governing principles that can mean the difference between business failure and success. Each of the book's 23 chapters presents a lesson from the exuberant and always challenging master - and a profit paradigm that will open your mind to the many ways to make profit happen.

    What is self-esteem? A type of confidence? Or something far greater? In Self-Esteem, best selling author Caroline Myss casts a new light on this often misunderstood subject, redefining self-esteem as an actual core power that is essential to our evolutionary progress.

    Rebecca says: "The BEST Book/Recording on Self Esteem EVER."
    "pragmatic"
    Overall

    Love her pragmatic approach to spiritual matters. This book demystifies and clearly explains how to strengthen self-esteem, and why self-esteem is fundamental to spiritual connectedness. She herself is a firm guiding presence -- caring but tough.
