    It's sad as this author has written other books that are both helpful and well worth the money!

    However, to even ask a few bucks for this is rather pathetic. Nothing much can be said except maybe the Author need a few extra bucks.... Who knows.... Maybe someone out there will find this helpful....

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    Buddhism is all about training the mind, and boot camp is an ideal training method for this generation's short attention span. The chapters in this audiobook can be listened in any order, and are simple and easy to understand. Each story, inspirational quote, and teaching offers mindfulness-enhancing techniques that anyone can relate to. You don't need to be a Buddhist to find the Buddha's teachings motivational. As the Dalai Lama says, "Don't try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are."

    We live in digital time. Our pace is rushed, rapid-fire, and relentless. Facing crushing workloads, we try to cram as much as possible into every day. We're wired up, but we're melting down. Time management is no longer a viable solution. Managing energy, not time, is the key to enduring high performance as well as to health, happiness, and life balance. The Power of Full Engagement provides a powerful, step-by-step program that will show you how.

    If you're new to self help and motivational books then this one gives you a good overview. I found it lacking depth and found it to be just a shadow of some of the great classics out there.

    I found this book very well written! It's a classic! The only problem I have with this book is the time management section. Like many great time management concepts.. I couldn't really find a way to truly put it into action.

    It is still well worth listening to for the overall knowledge that was given in this book!

    What do you crave? For many of us, sugary treats, fatty meals, and high-calorie snacks are impossible to resist. And yet, reaching the bottom of the biscuit tin rarely leaves us feeling satisfied. What if we are actually hungry for something much more fulfilling? In this groundbreaking new book, best-selling author and endocrinologist Deepak Chopra unites the latest scientific and alternative therapy research to reveal how our overeating is often a symptom of "inner starvation" - a hunger for love, self-esteem, happiness, and security.

    I can't really speak long term here or if this book is for everyone..... however, I've had this audio book for about a month now and have lost 10 kilos... And I have not been on any sort of diet!

    After changing a few lifestyle issues i.g. Eating with the family, being present when I eat and a few others.... things have really changed for me.

    All in all I found this a worthwhile book that I intend to listen to a few more times...

    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    An amazing book! I read it a year before I bought the audio version. The Audio version was just as amazing as the book. Finally a book that sheds light on the empire of the Khan's that takes the perspective of the Mongols and why they are perceived as they are now in moderen times.

    One of my all time favorites!

    After two decades of searching for the answers to these and many more of man’s deepest questions, Craig Beck discovered something amazing and life changing. It took a complete loss of faith and disillusionment with religion to force a dramatic change in his path that revealed not only the answers to those burning questions but also the secrets to life as we dream it to be - full of abundance, happiness and love.

    Craig Beck is a great Story teller. I've listened to a number of his audio books and though at times they overlap I find the information that's being presented will worth the repetition.

    As an audio book this was not what I would consider the best formate. As an eBook for half the price I would have said OK.

    The problem is the narrative is not very interesting, the narration drones on.... i.e. reading loooooooong internet links is not what I would call a good idea!

    I will say there are some interesting tidbits in this book, however like I said before a nice eBook with a checklist would have been better...

    Unlike some of the other reviews I've read.....I actually enjoyed the speakers voice!

    The authors narratives gave the book an additional depth that I found highly entertaining. If you enjoy history there are a lot of fascinating first hand accounts and historical anecdotes in this book. It is very republican party biased however the techniques and tips given in the audio book are priceless and overshadow the conservative undertones. i.e power pause, props etc...

    I was able to use a few of the techniques in a speech I gave a week after buying the audio book. After I finished someone in the audience said it was amazing how I had their full attention without speaking a word! i.e power pause.
