    This sequel to the Hugo and Audie Award nominated METAtropolis features interconnected stories by today’s top writers of speculative fiction – performed by a galaxy of Star Trek stars. As the mid-20th century approaches, the Pacific Northwest has been transformed - politically, economically, and ecologically - into the new reality of Cascadia. Conspiracies and secrets threaten the tenuous threads of society. And the End of Days seems nearer than ever.

    In "Call of the Wild", a domestic dog is kidnapped from his comfortable life on a California estate and thrown into the wild north woods. Buck, half St. Bernard and half Scottish shepherd, is a strong dog but not accustomed to the harsh life of the north and he must fight for survival. He learns how to work hard; how to dig a hole in a snowbank to stay warm; how to eat anything no matter how loathsome; how to scent the weather; how to break ice to find water; and most importantly, how to survive cruelty.

    Story

    I have been going through and listening to all the classics that have been made into movies. Here is another example where the book is thousands of time better than any movie. In the movies they leave, so much out that it actually ruins the story now that I’ve read the book. Here you will read a story that takes you into the mind of dog before people were even considering dog psychology. You will journey through the gold rush through the eyes and thoughts of Bucks and when it’s done you’ll love the story. I recommend this for parents of kids interesting in reading it to their kids.

    After years of meditation I still had questions. Here Deepak answers a lot of questions that would have taken years of reading or talking to people to get the answers we need. I like the answers and they make sense. The simple answers are always the hardest to find and figure out. If you are into meditation and awakening your higher consciousness this talk will help you.

    Viewed by many as the greatest science fiction writer on any planet, Philip K. Dick has written some of the most intriguing, original, and thought-provoking fiction of our time. This collection includes "The Minority Report," "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale," "Paycheck," "Second Variety," and "The Eyes Have It."

    Story

    If they had made the true story of the ‘Minority Report’ into a movie it would have flopped. Gee what would Tom Cruise do? The truth is I like this story better than any movie and its better. The second story was ‘We Can Remember It For You Wholesale’ which was the basis for ‘Total Recall’. Which all I can say is it’s different from any movie. It’s nice to see where they came up with ‘Total Recall’. As soon as I heard the beginning of ‘Paycheck’ I thought of the Ben Affleck movie called ‘Paycheck’. Hearing this story the movie Ben Affleck makes more sense. I like this version better and it’s better and shorter. The next is ‘Second Variety’ and it was the basis for the movie ‘Screamers’. Which was a good 80’s movie. The original story is great! I love it without all the Hollywood mumbo jumbo in it! It’s too bad they tried to ‘enhance it with their ‘magic’ because it ended up ruining the story. The Eyes Have It - Just sit back and laugh!

    Story

    I when I was training in Buddhism I was taught to look at death now! I’d never thought of death before and this was new. When I ran into this training again in the Free Masons I was prepared for it. I found it liberating to meditate on death and dying. This has caused me to resolve all ‘issues’ with people in my life. Here Deepak answers questions about death and the importance of accepting it. All the great teachers have told us to except death and not fear it. Enjoy this journey here on this world or this plain of existence. Listen to this book and it will help you. I haven’t listened to any of the other books by Deepak on this subject. Maybe after this I will, but after talking to others who have I and with my background I probably won’t.

  • The 5 Levels of Leadership: Proven Steps to Maximize Your Potential

    True leadership isn't a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than "the boss" people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership....

    Story

    I used to be in the Marines which many people believe is only a level one leader (Position). However, anyone that has read this book will tell you that Position and Title only get action. You want the hearts and minds of the people following you. I learned that early on in my military career. When I left the military I’ve seen many leaders that see themselves as level 5 leaders when really they’re level 1 at best. Too many people see themselves through their perceptions. This book will help you to understand why you need to look at the whole picture and not the perception. This has also helped me to identify my leaders level and see why the Law of the Lid is causing me to look elsewhere. If you are a ‘non-leader’ or a seasoned veteran this book will help you.

    Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society.

    Here we have a man that can see and hear all the spirits around him. He calls them ‘Aspects’ of himself. They can interact with the world through him and even in a time of need share his body. I believe this is meant to be the first in a long running series of books. We see him solve problems and mysteries. We see the complex problems have the most basic solutions. I recommend this book anyone that wants a short read.

    As a single guy out dating this book was a great help! It reminded me that it’s not about meeting someone and listening to respond. It’s about listening with the intent to add value to that person. I’ve seen my second date chances increase over 50% as I’ve gotten more second dates. I’ve also been reminded that where I was applying these habits in the office I need to apply them everywhere and in all aspects of my life. John C. Maxwell does a lot to help people and I enjoy his work immensely. I just wish they weren’t going through and ‘updating’ his books with new narrators. I have some of his books on CD still and I liked him reading them. This narrator is the best out of the new group of narrators I’ve listen to thus far. If you're looking for a boost in your life, dating or work relationships this simple easy to read book is for you.

    Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, police detective Elijah Baley has little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. Then he learns that he has been assigned a partner: R. Daneel Olivaw. Worse, the R stands for "robot" - and his positronic partner is made in the image and likeness of the murder victim!

    Story

    We’ve all seen or have heard about the movie ‘I, Robot’ with Will Smith. I always said we were missing more of the back story. Here we get it. Isaac Asimov has set a future in which the human race is living in large covered cities afraid to venture out and to change. Our colonies which we settled 1,000 years ago come back to help us. They end up doing it in am most unexpected way. Heck, they didn’t even see it coming. The story centers around a murder and it’s investigation and at the end of the investigation more has been solved than a simple murder. I just wish Audible had the ‘Naked Sun’ available, so I could complete the series without getting an actual book to read.

    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

    When I first started reading this book I thought I was reading a part of the Count of Monte Cristo. Then as it progressed I felt I was reading the ‘Dream Giver’ and realized this book is what Brian Wilkins was trying to achieve when he wrote his book. The Alchemist was written 20 years earlier and it a great story. The ‘Dream Giver’ always left me wanting more. Here the author give us more and then some. This book ties in very well with ‘Infinite Possibilities by Mike Dooley’ extremely well as well as ‘Excuse Me Your Life Is Waiting by Lynn Grabhron’. Here we meet a young man who thinks he has it all and is content with life, but his dreams tell him there is more out there. He pursues it and the story begins. After reading it I’ve removed the ‘Dream Giver’ from my recommended list and have replaced it with this book instead.

    If your looking for a traditional 'self-help' book then keep going. This book is more about core Buddhist principles in the sense that it was more about explaining a theory then directly speaking to you. You will learn things like: People want happiness, not suffering. Lust and hatred are rooted in ignorance. The key to solving this is through meditation.
    From here it keeps going. If you want a guide as to why meditation is needed here it is.
