    Blinded at age three, Mike May defied expectations by breaking world records in downhill speed skiing, joining the CIA, and becoming a successful inventor, entrepreneur, and family man. He had never yearned for vision. Then, in 1999, a chance encounter brought startling news: a revolutionary stem-cell transplant surgery could restore May's vision.

    Good story. Amazing mother who allowed him to literally fall on his face to find his limits (or lack there of.) It's also facsinating to see how the brain works.

    Clutter clearing can radically transform your life. Drawing on her wealth of experience as a feng shui, space clearing and clutter clearing consultant, Karen Kingston explains how clutter is stuck energy with far-reaching physical, mental, emotional and spiritual effects. This audio book will motivate you to clutter clear as never before, once you realise just how much your junk has been holding you back!

    Where does Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I owned the audio cassette version of this book and was so inspired by it that I listened to it several times. Audio cassettes have become obsolete and I no longer was able to listen to it in my car. (Road trips are my best time for listening). I did a search to try and find a CD or digital version to no avail. I decided to try again and am so excited that it's now available!!


    What insight do you think you???ll apply from Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui?

    Karen really brings home how we drown out the things that we love with things that we don't really care much about.


    Any additional comments?

    Karen's voice and accent are pleasant to listen to.

  • Leaving the Saints: How I Lost the Mormons and Found My Faith

    Story
    (44)

    Leaving the Saints is an unforgettable memoir about one woman's spiritual quest and journey toward faith. As "Mormon royalty" within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Martha Beck was raised in a home frequented by the Church's high elders, known as the apostles, and her existence was framed by their strict code of conduct.

    Sheila says: "Decide for yourself"
    "Keep writing Martha"
    Overall

    As I read this book I was amazed to see that Martha's experience was almost identical to the experience of a friend of mine. That friend has been convinced that she was a victim of "false memory syndrome". Interesting... I think Martha addressed some of the really wonderful things about the Morman people as well as the not so good. It's so sad that anyone who speaks out against a wrong is for the most part immediately attacked.

    After 20 years in Britain, Bryson returned to the U.S. and decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. This is his humorous, inspiring account.

    Jeff says: "Wonderful book, but hardly abridged"
    "The Best!"
    Overall

    The version of this book that I listened to was narrated by Ron McClarty who is one of my favorite readers. It was totally entertaining and very funny. Since this book I have sought out any other book that I can find about a similar adventure but have not found one that compares.
