A very insightful book and body of research that bust the myth that popular media tells us that wealthy people are high living people who spend vast amounts of money in expensive homes, exotic cars and branded goods.
Just because a person looks the part by driving a fancy sports car and wears an expensive Rolex, does not mean that he actually have money in the bank. A very sobering fact.
In fact, the true millionaires of America, according to the book are frugal, live simply, and spend most of their income on investments. A very good and insightful research on the true nature of America's stewards of wealth.
Make no mistake, the speech itself was profound, heart spoken and brilliant. Basically the message is, mindful self-awareness leads to love, compassion and eventually a happy life. Very similar to the core values of Buddhism but described in a funny, light hearted and down to earth manner. The only problem here is that for only 24 Mins this speech is NOT WORTH $7! In fact you can get the whole transcript of this speech online FREE by simply doing a google search (I only found about it after I purchased the audiobook). Perhaps 2$ would have been a much more reasonable price.
An excellent and easy to understand audio for those who are just starting to learn meditation and the mentality behind it. Highly recommended.
This audio book is truly a rare gem. Not only does Eckhart masterfully distill the ancient teachings and wisdom for achieving inner peace but explains its difficult concepts in a very clear and effective manner. A must read for those seeking for enlightenment.
Very light hearted and humorous. I love the chemistry between Dyer and Deepak. Although both speakers only lightly touch the topic, it is a good speech for people just starting to learn about manifesting their life the way they want it to be.
Even if you are skeptical with the concept of the law of attraction I found most of her relaxation and healing meditation very useful and effective for me. I have a very stressful job and found her guided meditation never seem to fail me in getting my mind off my problems and helping me calm down and get a good night sleep.
A little long winded and beats around the bush. I was hoping a little more in-depth focus on the skill of listening itself and not the psychological analysis why people don't listen. There are lots of good points but still lots of chaff mixed in.
If you want a better, clear cut and no nonsense approach on the art of listening, I suggest checking out Covey's Seven Habits of Highly effective people on Listening
