  • Magical Thinking: True Stories

    Story

    A contest of wills with a deranged cleaning lady. The execution of a rodent carried out with military precision and utter horror. Telemarketing revenge. A different kind of "roof work". Dating an undertaker who drives a mini-van. This is the fabric of Augusten Burroughs's life: a collection of true stories that are universal in their appeal yet unabashedly intimate, stories that shine a flashlight into both dark and hilarious places.

    "I just don't know"
    Overall

    I was first introduced to Augusten Burroughs with his book "Dry" and enjoyed his self-deprecating sense of humor, but this book is not of the same caliber....I found myself wincing at most of the "funny" anecdotes that he recounts. Additionally, Burrough's narration is at times embarassing, as his ability to emulate his character's voices comes off a bit sophomoric and amatuerish. My suggestion to anyone looking for light, comedic reading to purchase go for anthing by David Sedaris, as he is the definitive master of this genre.

  • Living Without Stress or Fear: Essential Teachings on the True Source of Happiness

    • ORIGINAL (6 hrs and 26 mins)

    Story
    (105)

    A life without stress or fear may seem like an impossible dream-yet Thich Nhat Hanh has spent a lifetime proving not only is it possible, but it is also within our grasp. On Living Without Stress or Fear, this treasured Zen master shares a message of hope: that we can, through the practice of mindfulness, find freedom from the grip of emotions like anxiety, anger and despair "Suffering persists because we nourish the feelings that cause it," reveals Thich Nhat Hanh.

    S. Davis says: "Just Listen"
    "Dissappointed"
    Overall

    I'm not going to trash this lecture because Thich Nhat Hanh is an excellent teacher, but as the other reviewer stated, he was virtually unintelligible. Get something written by him and narrated by someone else. I found a title called"No Death no Fear" and find it to be very good. Or better yet, just get something by Pema Chodron.

    The Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California, is thought of as a mysterious, almost mythical place for the cure of the rich and famous, among them Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minelli, Tony Curtis, and Robert Mitchum.

    In Destined for Destiny, "George W. Bush" offers listeners an intimate, plainspoken, and sometimes articulate look at the character-shaping achievements that led to his inevitable rise to the office of president of the United States. Written from the heart, not from the brain, this definitive autobiography takes listeners on a journey through the 43rd president's life.

    Scott says: "Therapy"
    ""You are my clown-faced zombie""
    Overall

    This book is a must-have for anyone in pain from the last 8 years of the little shrub's rule.

  • The Power of Now

    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!"
    "not a book to taken lightly"
    Overall

    this book is not just another self-help instructional, but a life lesson. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is seeking an alternative to westeren concecepts of religion, sex or moral taboos that we are all mired in. It may take more than one listen to the audiobook for the message to sink in, but it is worth the money and the time.
