    Napoleon Hill, born into poverty in 1883, began writing as a reporter for small town newspapers while just a teenager. When industrialist Andrew Carnegie commissioned him in 1908 to interview over 500 successful men and women to help prove his theory that success could be distilled down to a clear-cut formula, Hill met with hundreds of the richest and most famous people of the time.

    What did you love best about Deep Sleep Every Night?

    Like any meditation, you have to concentrate. But I suffer from sleep insomnia and therefore have a ton of headaches. After I started meditating before I sleep, I have not had a headache and I am able to find sleep.

    We all experience many states of consciousness, from ordinary waking and sleeping to extraordinary states in which we are more at peace, particularly aware, or exceptionally creative. Each of these states is associated with a particular pattern of brainwave activity. Dr. Jeffrey Thompson has been experimenting with sound and brainwaves scientifically since 1980, developing innovative techiques for embedding brainwave audio pulses into musical soundtracks.

    An old Chinese proverb says "Women hold up half the sky." Then why do the women of Africa and Asia persistently suffer human rights abuses? Continuing their focus on humanitarian issues, journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn take us to Africa and Asia, where many women live in profoundly dire circumstances.

    The Buddha said many times that just as the great oceans have but one taste, so do all the true teachings of the dharma: the taste of freedom. Jack Kornfield's The Roots of Buddhist Psychology is an invitation to drink deeply of these teachings; to taste the wisdom that flows from the heart of Buddhism's most useful ideas on the interior life and what brings awakening, freedom, and happiness. Jack Kornfield opens this eternal view of the mind for all listeners in this collection.

    I really enjoyed listening to Jack Kornfield. He has a sense of calmness that promotes calmness and somewhat leaves you wanting more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Knowledge is treasure. I will not become a Buddhist. But I will try to be Buddha like!


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the buy! I will be listening to it for a third time pretty soon here!!!

    Would you listen to Guided Meditation for Mindful Eating again? Why?

    Yes, I will listen to this audio book again. Hopefully for the 21 days it suggests we do. I don't know if I fall asleep or if I'm under hypnosis while Im listening to it. But when I open my eyes I feel fine, not tired. So that was a good result for me.

    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Win Friends & Influence People to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but I read a lot so I decided to give my eyes a break. This was a very enjoyable book to listen to. I especially enjoyed the narrator who sounds like he is speaking from the past with wisdom he WANTS to share.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the entire book. Being a perfectionist I seldom trust others or compliment on their work. I now have a better understanding of why people are the way they are and why they probably don't like me....lol...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It seems like everything he talked about was skills I recognized were within me, but I was letting outside influences determine my own behavior. I feel as though we are programed to know what is best for ourselves but often forget it. This was a great reminder!


    Any additional comments?

    I am listening to this book for the second time and will probably give it as a gift to my previous Priest. I also am looking forward to listening to the updated version that focuses on the Digital World.

    The Dalai Lama explains the basic Buddhist system and lays out a foundation for practice. Through daily practice, we pay homage to Buddha for his great kindness as teacher, we contemplate the impermanence of life, and dedicate our positive activities to the benefit of all in order to build a better world.

    What made the experience of listening to The Dalai Lama in America the most enjoyable?

    He has a great personality!


    What other book might you compare The Dalai Lama in America to and why?

    If you are looking to be a better person and change for yourself, try the Secret things of God by Dr. Henry Cloud. I am also listening to Live a better life by the Dalai Lama and so far it is great. I have listened to this particular one twice now and I catch something different every time.


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed the opening buda prayer in buda. It sounded peaceful, humble and like it came from the soul. I know almost nothing about budaism... but it is definitely something I want to learn more about.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and SMILE!
