    Story

    Conversation with God is Neale Donald Walsch's account of his direct conversations with God, beginning in 1992 while Walsch was immersed in a period of deep depression. He composed a letter to God in which he vented his frustrations, and much to his surprise, even shock, God answered him. Focusing on the universal truths that influence all life, Conversations with God offers a picture of the way life could be better.

    Story
    Would you listen to Conversations with God Book 3 again? Why?

    I have already listened to CWG3 several times. Asner and Burstyn (both as s/he Deity) give nuanced, subtle reads full of love, humor and insight. Who cares if it's God's writing or Walsch? As is stated over and over again, if it makes sense and helps you lead a better life...who cares?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I refuse to choose - Asner and Burstyn are both remarkable.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrators, wonderful actors both, bring an INVESTMENT to the material that doesn't HAMMER it at you...but it obviously deeply felt.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It did better than make me laugh or cry...it made me think. Do I BELIEVE in The Gospel of Neale Donald Walsch chapter and verse? No. But that is exactly the book's message.


    Any additional comments?

    This is perhaps the tenth audiobook I have listened to start to finish. It and Book I (perhaps even MORE so in Book I) are FAR AND AWAY the best use of audiobooks I have encountered.

    Suppose you could ask God the most puzzling questions about existence, and God would provide clear, understandable answers? It happened to Neale Donald Walsch. Conversations with God is Neale Donald Walsch's account of his direct conversations with God, beginning in 1992 while Walsch was immersed in a period of deep depression. He composed a letter to God in which he vented his frustrations, and much to his surprise, even shock, God answered him.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES...I have already gifted it to several people. DON'T PUSH IT AT PEOPLE. The work and the performance wil speak for themselves.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Conversations with God, Book 1?

    Not the moments...the performances. Asner and Burstyn, both stellar performers, give subtle, nuanced reads. Walsch (as himself) does his best, and he's not bad, but he can't keep up with these two.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Again, no


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The very, very end.

  • Words That Work

    The nation's premier communications expert shares his wisdom on how the words we choose can change the course of business, of politics, and of life in this country. In Words That Work, Luntz offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the tactical use of words and phrases affects what we buy, who we vote for, and even what we believe in. With chapters like "The 10 Rules of Successful Communication" and "The 21 Words and Phrases for the 21st Century", he examines how choosing the right words is essential.

    Timothy I. Morgenthaler says: "Repetative vainglorious windbag"
    "Still VERY useful info...but dated and shrill"

    Story
    What did you like best about Words That Work? What did you like least?

    BEST: Luntz's deeply intelligent, thoughtful commit ment to the use of LANGUAGE that strikes the LISTENER's ear most persuasively. Example: SHARED SACRIFICE = no way. WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER = um...keep talking. Words matter a great deal. And picking the RIGHT words for your target audience is crucial.

    WORST: The performance is delivered as if it's a play-by-play for a bootball game tied in the fourth quarter! Rapid-fire shrillness has made me turn it off and go back to the print MANY times.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Never got there


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dr. Frank Luntz’s performances?

    No.


    Do you think Words That Work needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Needs a later edition - alas, much of what is covered is ancient political history.
