    The structure of your brain changes constantly, in a dynamic, unfolding process that you yourself can direct to create the life you want. This is the exciting premise of Meditations to Change Your Brain, a breakthrough program from psychologist Rick Hanso, Ph.D. and neurologist Rick Mendius, M.D.

    Jeanette says: "Interesting"
    "one of the best"
    Overall

    I've been meditating for over twenty years and this is one of the best i've heard. One of the things I loved about this narration is it doesn't break into the loud nerve jangling music. Another thing that sets this apart from the rest is he teaches you to rewire your responses in simple to follow, very effective terms. Highly educational information on the brain & how to change it.

    Story
    (362)

    In 1971, President Nixon imposed national price controls and took the United States off the gold standard, an extreme measure intended to end an ongoing currency war that had destroyed faith in the U.S. dollar. Today we are engaged in a new currency war, and this time the consequences will be far worse than those that confronted Nixon. Currency wars are one of the most destructive and feared outcomes in international economics.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Currency Wars to be better than the print version?

    Same reason I listen to most books. I can get educated driving to work or doing yard work.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In an age of uncertainty, especially for investors, Mr. Rickards gives it to you straight, you can't miss a word he says. No fluff, just amazingly good information. If you want an education in currency this is it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    He explains currency events regarding the depression.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Too many to name. The fact that he goes into the history of world wide currency's really pulls it all together for the reader/listener. It was like a road map of the past, present & future economic events layed out in front of me.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is on my top 3 favorite, I'm over 50 & read/listen to several a week. That say a lot.

    Why are you captivated by some people but not by others? Why do you recall some brands yet forget the rest? In a distracted, overcrowded world, how do certain leaders, friends, and family members convince you to change your behavior? Answer: fascination, the most powerful way to influence decision-making. It's more persuasive than marketing, advertising, or any other form of communication. And it all starts with seven universal triggers: lust, mystique, alarm, prestige, power, vice, and trust.

    Lanie Evans says: "Hog your Head with Fascinate!"
    "not very fascinating"
    Overall

    A great high energy reader, but really she's just stating the obvious, giving examples and restating.
    Lots of reinforcement to buy into the shallow superficial behavior of society.

    Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of the world and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and upside down.

    Louise says: "excellent reading"
    "can't understand it"
    Overall

    The author is so breathless & talks so fast I can't understand it. I can see where an accent might add interest, but not to to point it's inaudible.
