  • Guerilla Marketing Weapons

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 35 mins)
    • By Jay Conrad Levinson
    • Narrated By Barrett Whitener

    Too many small and mid-sized businesses offer gold-medal quality and service yet struggle to pay their bills and stay in business. Their only missing component is guerrilla marketing, a method that puts energy where the dreams are. The 100 targeted weapons detailed in this audiobook add potency to a marketing attack and substantially increase profits. Most important, they work for all types of small and medium businesses, and even for nonprofit organizations.

    "Good info narrated horribly"

    I have one lonely complaint about this audiobook, that being the narration. The usually great narrator Barrett Whitener, uses horribly stiff pronunciation on almost every word. One example is the word "marketing", as the Mr. Whitener insists on pronouncing it as "mark-kit-TING" unnecessarily. I am far from picky about audiobook narrators, but in this case I believe it takes away from the otherwise valuable content.

    Do yourself a favor and listen to the sample before purchasing this item. You may choose to buy the book in place of this audio version.

  • Pure Meditation

    • ORIGINAL (2 hrs and 7 mins)
    • By Pema Chodron
    • Narrated By Pema Chodron

    For thirteen hundred years, Tibetans have been practicing shamtha/vipashyana (peaceful dwelling/insight): a profound form of meditation that illuminates and purifies the obstacles to spiritual realization. Tibetan Buddhists today regard shamatha/vipashyana as both the fundamental and the most advanced spiritual practice of all.

    Pantelis says: "Good Content, Poor Audio Quality"
    "Disappointing sound quality!"

    I read the 2 previous reviews and didn't think sound quality would be an issue. However, once purchased, I'm very disappointed by the quality of the recording. The MP3 is encoded at 32 KBPS which is extremely low quality. It makes me feel like I've got earplugs in.

    Have only listened to 10 minutes of this audiobook so far but I'm not sure I can listen to much more!

  • Ask and It Is Given, Volume 1: The Law of Attraction

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 32 mins)
    • By Esther Hicks, Jerry Hicks
    • Narrated By Jerry Hicks

    Ask and It Is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, which presents the teachings of the nonphysical entity Abraham, will help you learn how to manifest your desires so that you�re living the joyous and fulfilling life you deserve.

    James says: "Important Stuff"
    "Sure to"

    Whether or not you believe that Esther Hicks is actually channeling the thoughts of a group of non-physical beings, this recording will make you sit back and think. The words are wise, and when put into practice, will change your life and the way you look at anything you ever desired.

    This book deserves the high ratings it has gotten on this site.

  • Deep Sleep Every Night

    • ORIGINAL (1 hr and 4 mins)
    • By Glenn Harrold
    • Narrated By Glenn Harrold

    Join the thousands of people who have overcome their sleep disorders and insomnia by using this superb, high-quality hypnosis audiobook by Glenn Harrold--the UK's best-selling self-help audio author. Insomnia and other sleep problems are often caused by stress, anxiety, and a busy mind at bedtime. Glenn's highly acclaimed hypnotherapy techniques and audio production will help you overcome these problems in a completely safe and natural way.

    Leslie Catt says: "Almost perfect"
    "Great value"

    Psychosomatic or not, this book has given me a feeling of better sleep. Being self-employed, sleep tends to take a back seat to running my business. For several months I felt unrested no matter how much sleep I would get. Generally I could get about 7 hours on a good night.

    After purchasing this book and listening to it every night since, I feel much more rested the morning after. I am not sleeping more; if anything, I am sleeping less.

    It did take several sessions to get over his voice and the general humor in what I was listening to. Less sarcastic people may not have to adjust.

    I highly recommend this recording.
