  • Secrets Series: Attract The Woman Of Your Dreams: Love & Attraction Persuasion Psychology

    As with all other areas of success in life, attracting the woman of your dreams is not something you can assume you are just going to stumble upon one day. Attraction isn’t a random occurrence, and in the same way you wouldn’t set out to build a house with no plans… hoping fate will deliver your soulmate is unproductive waste of time and energy. One of the biggest mistakes men make is assuming that women think and feel the same way that they do.

    What did you love best about Secrets Series: Attract The Woman Of Your Dreams?

    no bs. sure, a lot of what i have read and heard before, but this is concise and helpful.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    story only 3 *s because it isnt a story.
    i wouldnt change anything. there is no need to convolute or elongate the message and this ab does what it says without procrastination.


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

    narrating himself. he is a great reader and great to listen to which is of huge importance in an ab, as you know.


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

    no, not the type of ab.


    Any additional comments?

    its all those other wasteful "tips and tricks" vanquished as it is a pragmatic, to the point and very salient listen.

    Adam March is a self-made “Master of the Universe.” He has it all: the beautiful wife, the high-powered job, the glittering circle of friends. But there is a price to be paid for all these trappings, and the pressure is mounting—until the day Adam makes a fatal mistake. His assistant leaves him a message with three words: your sister called.

    Shelby says: "A cynic and a cynical dog - PERFECT!!"
    "the art of racing in the rain..."
    Overall

    comparisons are always going to be made between one good dog and the aforementioned book in the title.

    this was a very good book, but in my opinion the art of racing in the rain is much better.

    still a good listen though: well narrated and a good story. : )

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    FanB14 says: "Artful Surprise"
    "loved it from the grid to the chequered flag!"
    Overall

    this is the best book i have ever read/heard.
    garth stein must have been a golden retriever in a previous life because he has an amazing ability to give enzo the exact "person(dog)ality" you would expect him to have.
    i personally love animals and have difficulty believing anyone bar the extremely sensitive would have any issues with this book and would (and have been!) recommend this to any listener without hesitation.

    i loved it - definitely two dewclaws up from me.

    Overall

    i have a few of glenn harrolds recordings and have bought this not only because i think it will benefit me,
    but mostly to give you a tip you may find handy!
    i have a recording called "cat napper" that really helps me get to sleep, but the end of it intentionally wakes you up!
    so what i have done is this: go into itunes (hopefully this is what you have?) and right click on the recording and then choose the "options" tab. from here, you can set the end time to before the part that wakes you up!

    i hope you find this helpful.
    kind regards,

    Would you like to use body language to get a payrise at work? Would you like to know exactly when someone is lying, just by looking at them? Would you like to know how the best sportsmen and women use simple body language to help them win? Well now you can! Best-selling self development author Tony Wrighton presents his incredible Seven Secrets of Body Language...

    Steve says: "Body Language"
    "the quick and easy dummies guide!"
    Overall

    okay, look it IS only 30 minutes, so you shouldnt expect to become a master...
    if you have never read anything on body language and are looking for an intro, then this would be great. tony wrighton is a great narrator whose personality always shines through in his books. i really like him, and he is interesting and humourous to listen to.
    i saw a recommendation for "the definitive book of body language" by alan and barbara pease.
    having read both this title and Lillian Glass' "I know what you're thinking" i would highly recommend the latter, as i think it is more on the money. cant see the other reviews at the moment, so (reviewer!): check it out - its really good. : )

  • Applying the 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace

    Drawing upon the lessons of great teachers such as St. Francis of Assisi, Viktor Frankl, Jesus Christ, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, and Buddha, Dr. Dyer helps you discover that you can achieve true inner peace and success by integrating 10 powerful "secrets" into your life that can transform your everyday existence into a path of spiritual enlightenment.

    Ryan says: "Sold as something else !"
    "okay, its a rehash..."
    Overall

    i read a review saying that this was all a rehash of a previous one...
    i didnt actually have that previous one so thought i would be safe, but it turns out this draws largely from the one i had, so he is not only doubling up, but in my mind has reduced my faith in him.

    this rehashing feels akin to going to see a stand up comedian and loving him and then seeing him again a year or so later with great expectations only to witness the very same performance...

    IMO its a bit diminishing to the fantastic work of dr.dyer.

    what i dont agree with is the egotistic comment. merely stating facts about oneself with humility is in no way egotistical in the sense of personal glorification. anyone who has heard dr.dyer speak should know that he is far from an egomaniac, as what he says is closer to the very antithesis of egotism!

  • The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't

    In a landmark article published in the Harvard Business Review, Stanford University professor Robert I. Sutton addressed a taboo topic that affects every workplace: employees who are insensitive to their colleagues, corporate bullies, bosses who just don't get it, the kind of people who make you exclaim in exasperation, "What an asshole!" Now, in a definitive book that addresses this growing problem, Sutton shows you how you can work with unsavory people without becoming one of them yourself.

    David says: "okay, I get it"
    "ultimately unhelpful really..."
    Overall

    okay, so in the last 6 months or so, the place i work had new guys start all within a short period of time who know each other from their last job and have formed a clique of "certified assholes" who have caused a huge dichotomy and made our dept a very negative environment with their bullying and cynical ways.

    hence, the purchase of this book.

    the good thing about this book is that he describes characteristics about these assholes perfectly - which was good for a laugh as i watched them do exactly as the narrator said...
    the bad thing is that after all this, you never really get told how to counter them apart from either "going with the flow" or resorting to 'tit for tat' methods of winning "small battles" to gradually undermine them.
    personally, i much prefer to use only positive methods to achieve desired things in life and disagree with these negative uses of thought energy.

    i wouldnt recommend this book unless you are just looking to affirm your suspicions about the assholes at work!

    one thing that makes this book unique is the rather annoying usage of the word: "expecially" every 3 minutes; and this is an audiobook, so it cant be dismissed as a typo!!

    Every day, we face the challenge of persuading others to do what we want. But what makes people say 'yes' to our requests? Based on more than 60 years of research into the psychology of persuasion, this audiobook reveals many remarkable insights that will help listeners to be more persuasive, both at work and at home.

    Positive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts, words and images that are conductive to growth, expansion and success. It is a mental attitude that expects good and favorable results. A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds.

    Paul L. says: "Lousy production"
    "Very Beneficial..."
    Overall

    this is an excellent and most positive influence for anyone who likes the self development genre, as i do.
    i find it very 'hit and miss' when buying books of this kind, and consider this a definite "hit" as it is not simply a pastiche like others i have bought and read.
    i put this on as part of a playlist to go to sleep to and really do feel it has a beneficial effect.
    i hope this encourages other like minds to give it a go and that it helps as much as i feel it has!

    In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores intention as an all-pervading force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

    Capsaicin says: "Inspiring"
    "Excellent..."
    Overall

    I really liked this and I really like the way Dr Dyer speaks.
    it is a very positive lecture and this being my first encounter with Dyer, am impressed enough to now buy his "10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace..." book.
    i dont have his "extra mile..." one, so will not be risking purchasing the same material twice, as another reviewer has said. im really looking forward to it. : )
