    Have you ever felt that your life was guided by larger forces? Unseen but very real energies that influence every direction your life takes? In her renowned work as a medical intuitive, Caroline Myss examined the patterns of hundreds of archetypes that exist in human consciousness, and found that each of us has a "sacred support team" of 12 primary archetypes. Once identified, these archetypes allow you to discover your highest purpose, what she calls your "Sacred Contract".

    "Too much opinion Not enough "fact""
    Overall

    I realize that this isn't exactly a topic that is generally accepted as documented "fact" to begin with, but I felt that this book was pitiful. I would say this book is 15% archetypes, and 85% the author ranting about her life and the fact that she is right and everyone else is wrong. I am generally able to listen to about anything. I listen to books on quantum physics for crying out loud. This was terrible. I listened for almost 3 hours before she started actually getting in to individual archetypes. When she finally did, she kept going into asides that completely took away from any learning process that was being started. Unless you love this author specifically, and are a huge fan of her personal agenda I would highly recommend finding another read. That is my personal opinion of course.

    Science starts to get interesting when things don't make sense. Science's best-kept secret is that there are experimental results and reliable data that the most brilliant scientists can neither explain nor dismiss. If history is any precedent, we should look to today's inexplicable results to forecast the future of science. Michael Brooks heads to the scientific frontier to meet 13 modern-day anomalies and discover tomorrow's breakthroughs.

    Stephen says: "10 interesting chapters-read epiloge first"
    "Very informative."
    Overall

    This wasn't exactly what I was expecting in all honesty. There was alot of history mixed in with unexplained science. Normally I wouldn't have liked that very much, but it was done exceptionally well. The topics also were not exactly what I was expecting, but I think that was for the best. I was very impressed with the topics, and the discussions themselves. The topics included why we produce sexually as opposed to asexually, why we die, the placebo effect, there were a few quantum physics issues, etc. A very good read, if not a bit deep. I recommend being able to devote a bit more attention than usual to this book when you listen. It can get a bit complex at times.

    Make your story the best it can be on two levels. Hear each superstar teacher present his unique approach to story telling.

    Overall

    This is a great read for anybody who loves writing fiction. The lessons apply specifically to play/script writing, but can effortlessly be applied to any kind of story, no matter the scope. I would recomend this (and I have) to anyone who has an interest of writing any kind of fiction work. Period.

    When Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon decide to spy on a presentation her uncle, the commanding Lord Asriel, is making to the elders of Jordan College they have no idea that they will become witnesses to an attempted murder, and even less that they are taking the first steps in a journey that will lead them into danger and adventure unlike anything Lyra's unfettered imagination has conjured up.

    Overall

    First of all, I must say that this book is great to begin with. It is well written and amazingly touching. Aside from that, the quality of the audio here is unsurpassed. This is the first book I have purchased here and I must admit I was a bit hesitant. I was worried that I was going to get a dull narrator who couldn't make my own death sound interesting to me. I am ecstatic to be able to say I received the exact opposite. There are multiple characters voiced in this story and you can easily tell the difference between them all. Honestly it plays out almost like an old radio drama from the 20's. I would recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat. Bravo!
