    From the author of the acclaimed The Brother Gardeners, a fascinating look at the founding fathers from the unique and intimate perspective of their lives as gardeners, plantsmen, and farmers. For the founding fathers, gardening, agriculture, and botany were elemental passions, as deeply ingrained in their characters as their belief in liberty for the nation they were creating. These stories reveal a guiding but previously overlooked ideology of the American Revolution.

    C. says: ""Outstanding Listen""
    "Sublimely informative..."
    Overall

    This Audible book really gives you a sense of the founding of this country. Although it is documented with scholarly precision and jam-packed with historical detail, it is a truly compelling listen. Thus far, 'Founding Gardeners' is my favorite audio book. A jewel.

    Spiritual teacher Michael A. Singer explores the question of human identity and shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and achieve happiness and self-realization.

    Story
    What would have made The Untethered Soul better?

    The author continually undermines his arguments by using Christian concepts to support them (Angel of Death,the Gospel of John, Jesus, Christian concept of God). The rave review from Deepak Chopra should have served as a warning. No doubt, this 'best selling author' will be featured at Learning Annex's all around the country, for years to come. To cleanse the palate, pick up 'god is not Great' by Christopher Hitchens.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael A. Singer again?

    To paraphrase Singer; each day might be my last - and I could not possibly risk wasting any part of what is left of my life - reading this dribble.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Untethered Soul?

    All but the part about finding your inner voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Painful to get through...
