    Life-changing wisdom never goes out of style! These eight classic works have truly stood the test of time, selling tens of millions of copies and remaining in constant demand. Now The Secrets of Success, a one-of-a-kind anthology of achievement, reveals why they are every bit as inspiring as they were a century ago.

    "Amateurish narration"
    Overall

    Although the books included in this audio are classics, the narration is poorly done. It is as if you'd asked your brother, who has no interest in these titles, to read to you while you drive.

  • Persuasion

    The outcome of most persuasive events is determined before you ever say a word. People may know how to sell, but most were never taught how to persuade. Persuasion expert Dave Lakhani breaks down the process into easy-to-use steps, teaching the listener not only how to persuade, but the biology and psychology behind it as well.

    "Those who can't...."
    Overall

    The author narrates this audio book and he is by far the least persuasive speaker I have heard on Audible. It actually made me laugh when the author was on the topic of using your voice to persuade others. The content is unoriginal and disappointing.

  • The Voice of Knowledge: A Practical Guide to Inner Peace

    In The Voice of Knowledge, don Miguel Ruiz reminds us of a profound and simple truth: The only way to end our emotional suffering and restore our joy in living is to stop believing in lies, mainly about ourselves.

    Lea says: "lovely but abridged"
    "Anger management"
    Overall

    This audio seems geared toward an anger management class or addiction recovery. The author provides a masculine paradigm to explain problems with emotions and self-esteem, offering a face-saving explanation to people (men?) without a spiritual compass. Excellent for its purpose but not challenging for those who have read a lot of self-help/spiritual texts.

  • The Wayne Dyer Audio Collection

    This audio collection is filled with Dr. Wayne Dyer's incomparable wisdom. It guides us to new levels of self-awareness.

    R. Lopez says: "A great buy!"
    "Sometimes redundant"
    Overall

    Although 4 talks are contained on this audio, there is some redundance and, at times, Dyer's train of thought seems to wander perilously. A pleasant voice and nice ideas, overall. Still I wonder if Dr. Dyer regrets his sarcasm when dealing with a cold sufferer now that he has had a mild heart attack and angioplasty.

    This is a program that you can't afford to miss! Never before has best-selling author and speaker Dr. Wayne W. Dyer brought his personal and spiritual experiences to his listeners in such a poignant and thought-provoking manner.

    Greg says: "Not for me"
    "Recorded in 1995"
    Overall

    This is not a new work by Dyer. This is a recording of a short talk he made in 1995. It references the OJ trial. It contains nothing that is not in the "Wayne Dyer Audio Collection"

  • The Power of Now

    To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

    "Faux saintliness"
    Overall

    The author and his scripted acolytes sound like new-age "saints" on Percodan. I tried to hang in there, I really did, but when the author describes how women can enhance their connection to 'now' during menses I could not leap the chasm of believability.
