    Twelve American tourists join an art expedition that begins in the Himalayan foothills of China - dubbed the true Shangri-La - and heads south into the jungles of Burma. But after the mysterious death of their tour leader, the carefully laid plans fall apart, and disharmony breaks out among the pleasure-seekers.

    Story

    I got the audio for this book, which my book club was reading, since I was having such a hard time getting into the printed version. I figured if I was captive in a car as I made back to back three hour drives that I would be able to become immersed in the story. Unfortunately that did not prove to be the case. The book is painful - contrived, tedious, flat. I couldn't believe in the narrator at all, and believing in the narrator requires a big buy in from the beginning. The whole thing felt very forced.

    The more you learn about quantum physics, the more you wonder: who is really creating your reality? Fear not, Dr. Quantum, superhero of spiritual science, is here to help you meet the real creator: You! Join this champion of modern thought (sometimes known by his alter ego, Dr. Fred Alan Wolf) on a quest for truth through the strange reality of quantum physics.

    Story

    I was all set to like this. I had heard a very interesting interview with Fred Alan Wolf on Insights At the Edge so had high expectations for this audio recording. But for some reason Dr. Wolf seems to have the mistaken impression that he has to ham up his delivery to make it interesting or to live up to his "Dr Quantum" persona. So the delivery was painfully corny to start with but the most disappointing part was the fact that there wasn't much depth to the content. This audio might work for someone who has never been introduced to "New Thought"/ Eastern approaches to spirituality or to the places where those philosophies intersect with science, but it seemed to me that, even if that were the case, there are better introductions to those ideas to be found elsewhere.

  • Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (and a Way to Get There from Here)

    If looking at today's headlines males you wonder about the fate of our planet, here is some news that may surprise you from an evolutionary standpoint - we are exactly where we need to be. According to emminent biologist Bruce H. Lipton and political and cultural commentator Steve Bhaerman, we are surrounded by the proof that we are poised to make an incredible step forward in the growth of our species.

    Story

    This was an engaging listening experience, in part because the material itself was a stimulating mix of quantum physics, evolutionary theory, spirituality and human potential - and in part because Lipton and Bhaerman speak to the listener (as in an interesting lecture or seminar) instead of reading from a text, which can often be a bit more wooden and dry. I listened to this on an eight hour solo car trip and the miles and hours flew by.
