    Since its publication in 1960, Dr. Maltz's seminal text has inspired more than 30 million readers to enhance their lives and achieve life-changing goals - from losing weight to excelling in sports to dramatically increasing their income. Now revised for a new millennium, The New Psycho-Cybernetics remains true to Dr. Maltz's visionary approach and proven groundbreaking techniques.

    I bought this thinking okay another self help book; let me see what it can?t do. To my surprise this is probably the last and only self help book I?ll ever need. From a business and personal point of view, it's a book ahead of its time. We live in a I want it yesterday, multi-task society where we never seem to get enough done. This book tells you how to slow down, stop worrying and complete one task at a time. There is no such thing as multi-tasking. It teaches how to unselfishly love you. It tells you how to stop ridiculing yourself for making mistakes because mistakes are just another opportunity to get it right. This is a phenomenal book.

    Who Asked You? opens as Trinetta leaves her two young sons with her mother, Betty Jean, and promptly disappears. BJ, a trademark McMillan heroine, already has her hands full dealing with her other adult children, two opinionated sisters, an ill husband, and her own postponed dreams - all while holding down a job as a hotel maid. Her son Dexter is about to be paroled from prison; Quentin, the family success, can't be bothered to lend a hand; and taking care of two lively grandsons is the last thing BJ thinks she needs.

    I've listened to it several times. It's life changing.

    When BJ finally takes time for herself.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    BJ


    Who was the most memorable character of Who Asked You? and why?

    BJ was the most memorable character because she is todays grandparent.


    Any additional comments?

    I love to watch old black and white movies. In the movies you have children they become successful. Then they have children and they all come to the grandparent’s house for the holidays. Terry’s book is keeping it real. Life doesn’t follow a happiness blue print plan. Women devote so much of their lives taking care of others that we don’t have the time or energy to stop and take care of ourselves. We rear our children and then our children have children. But they don’t come home for the holidays, they come back to live with you. If they leave home and stay gone they drain you financially and/ or emotionally. Terry’s book saved my life. I’m a spiritual person. I reared my children and one granddaughter. I financially help out my children and grandchildren. I worked at my job for almost 20 years. I got a new boss who was a bully and fired me for being old. I didn’t feel old. Time has been good to me, but the face looking back at me showed the struggles of life. I’m 60 years old and one paycheck away from poverty. I’ve used my retirement to help my children. I prayed and asked God for help. I was looking through my library on Audible. Then I saw Terry McMillan’s new book, “Who Asked You?” The character BJ, reminded me of myself. She showed me that, even at my age there is hope. The narrators were excellent. Many thanks go out to Phylicia Rashad whose voice calmed my anxiety. Thank you, Terry for writing a book for today’s trials and tribulations. It was the answer to my prayer.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Joseph says: "Good historical setting, but loose story."
    "Habit Forming"
    Overall

    The book starts out a bit slow but once you figure out the main characters they come to life.
    Greed is powerful. If you think todays headlines are scandolus you have a treat in store. For individuals who sit in church every Sunday thinking about how boring it is, step behind the scene and witness, lies, sex, murder and hypocrisy at it’s best. I found myself staying up late just to hear the next segment. At the end of the tape I wanted more. I was elated to find the author has another book out. Keep it coming.

    If you can count on one thing from "Madea" Mabel Simmons, star of Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea's Family Reunion, it's that she's got something to say. She's the beloved, hilarious, sharp-witted, pistol-packing grandmother who's watching out and speaking her mind. Now Madea is telling her own story, dishing her memoirs and hard-won, hilarious wisdom in her own inimitable voice (with a little help from her friend Tyler Perry).

    Tyler Perry is brillant; he anwsers questions many of us think about but are to embarrassed to ask. Don't let the title mislead you this book pertains to all people Black, White or Brown. Because everyone has a Madea in their family. She's "Sofia" in the Golden Girls, Judge Judy.She's the backbone of your family.She's the person who's going to tell it like it is. You will not be bored. Keep bringing it Tyler.

    Okay, folks, do you want to turn those fat and flabby expenses into a well-toned budget? Do you want to transform your sad and skinny little bank account into a bulked-up cash machine? Then get with the program, people. There's one sure way to whip your finances into shape, and that's with The Total Money Makeover. It's the simplest, most straight-forward game plan for completely making over your money habits. And it's based on results, not pie-in-the-sky fantasies.

    Gladis says: "Awesome advise"
    "Stop and listen"
    Overall

    The author will teach you how to take control of your finances. A lot of what we think about finances is wrong. He will teach you how to pay yourself, pay your bills and get out of debt. I would have never thought to pay off my smallest accounts first but that's the way to go. If you want to buy a home he'll teach you how to find a good broker and you don't have to have a perfect FICO score. It all here.

    The covenant that God made with the patriarch Abraham forms the basis of the three religions that today enjoy the largest followings in the world: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Despite the many common bonds among them, however, the Abrahamic religions have had an extremely complicated relationship, frequently defined by conflict, over the course of millennia of coexistence.

    David says: "No Faith Needed"
    "Great"
    Overall

    This is school without having to get dressed and attend. The Professor teaches that there is one God whether we choose to call him Yahweh, Jehovah or Allah they are all the Great I am. The Jews were first, then the Christians and Muslims. Three groups of people fighting and praying to the same God.

    Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

    Overall

    I was curious to hear how anyone could make a case against God. The book strengthens my belief in God. I didn’t crawl and evolve from a sea creature. To tell you the truth I wasn’t able to make it though the book. It’s so ridiculous. I respect anyone’s right not to believe in God but there’s a difference in not believing and thinking there is no God. If God is a figment of my imagination then, I’m on one heck of a good trip.

    Brian Tracy has spent more than 20,000 hours researching and reading on the subject of personal and business success. This is the most comprehensive and advanced seminar on personal success and achievement ever developed. This 16-segment audio program reveals how to set goals, make more money, simplify your life, and supercharge your career.

    With this book your're able to attend a seminar that probably cost $400. to attend and have it your way. I could stop, rewind and fast foreward. No doubt Tracy is amongst the best of the motivational speakers. He explains that no matter what field of work we're in we are all sellers. He'll teach you how to bring out the best in what ever you do.

    Looking for a practical guide to the fulfillment of your dreams?

    The book is worth listening to but, it's everthing you need to know you learned in kindergarten. Basically, treat everyone the way you want to be treated and good things will happen to you.
