    When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

    "REALLY great listen!"

    The narration by Ben Kingsley made the book just that much more enjoyable. A lovely story with some discussion of parallels between yoga and Christianity.

    Now that he's married to Merrill Darling, daughter of billionaire financier Carter Darling, attorney Paul Ross has grown accustomed to New York society and all of its luxuries: a Park Avenue apartment, weekends in the Hamptons, bespoke suits. When Paul loses his job, Carter offers him the chance to head the legal team at his hedge fund. Thrilled with his good fortune in the midst of the worst financial downturn since the Great Depression, Paul accepts the position. But Paul's luck is about to shift....

    Would you listen to The Darlings again? Why?

    Maybe...it was a really good listen


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Darlings?

    You just can't wait to see what will happen next. You like these characters, even if you want to dislike them.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Darlings and why?

    Paul...he is unwittingly caught up in the excessiveness


    Any additional comments?

    Since the story takes place in just one week, reading it might be a little slow. I can't wait to get in my car, or on the treadmill to finish this book!

    Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.
