    Is intention simply wishful thinking, or is it a force that can actually change the world around you? Nobody has made a more comprehensive investigation of the power of the mind to influence the universe than Lynne McTaggart. Her conclusion: Thought does shape reality, but much depends on how skillfully the thinker can use his or her intention. With Living with Intention, this groundbreaking author builds upon her findings from The Field to explore what makes mind-over-matter work, what can interfere with its effectiveness, and how you can use focused thought to enhance your life, help those around you, and transform your world.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator did not seem to have practiced some of the lines. Some sentences seemed longer than she'd planned. It just seemed too casual. Also, the whole thing is just too pulpy. Maybe that's the wrong word. But I prefer Wayne Dyer and his very spiritual approach. This is a bit strange... she talks about buying devices (to neutralize ions or something in the air) to make an ideal occasion to send intentions out. It's just seems a bit too stereotypical-- reminiscent of old gypsies in movies with crystals and incense.


    Has Living with Intention turned you off from other books in this genre?

    A little bit.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrator?

    Yes!

    In this irresistible memoir, the New York Times best-selling author and winner of the Pulitzer Prize Anna Quindlen writes about looking back and ahead - and celebrating it all - as she considers marriage, girlfriends, our mothers, faith, loss, all the stuff in our closets, and more. Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake is filled with the sharp insights and revealing observations that have long confirmed Quindlen’s status as America’s laureate of real life.

    What did you love best about Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake?

    There is a chapter on every aspect of being a female and what we learn as we get older. I'm only 1/3 through the book and have bookmarked plenty of moments. I'm 37 and really identify with her. Her description of solitude as a treat and shunning society's changing and contradictory messages about being a woman.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love that this is a very honest anecdote. Like having a wise, cool aunt who is not afraid of being honest.


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

    I think there will be more so I will save my applause.

    In business, you need an edge. In every business situation—to get that job, get that promotion, lead that negotiation, make that sale—you need to win people over. In highly competitive situations, you need to stand out, get noticed, and be remembered. The Art of Business Seduction gives you the edge you need. This is a concise personal success plan that teaches you how to make the smart moves and say the right things to succeed in any business setting.

    What disappointed you about The Art of Business Seduction?

    It doesn't add anything to your knowledge if you know the basics of human interaction. The first few chapters are promises about what will happen if you listen to the book. But 3 chapters in, you are still listening to "you will be xyz if you apply the rules we will teach you"... so teach them already!!


    What aspect of Mark Jeffries’s performance would you have changed?

    He's not bad. Just had a bad script.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Art of Business Seduction?

    All the promises and introductory chapters. I'd add some meat. I'd organize the book into clear chapters so people can skip around and still get something out of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't recommend the book. Unless you're Borat and need all the help you can get.

  • Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find - And Keep - Love

    Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking audiobook, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory - the most advanced relationship science in existence today - can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many best-selling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships - until now.

    Where does Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find - And Keep - Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Loved this book. It takes the blame or shame away from needing a certain type of love or attachment. And it helps identify how people need and react to attachment.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Yes and I will revisit it again.

    Dr. Gary Chapman believes you have a God-given yearning for complete and unconditional love. But you'll never be able to express it, or receive it, until you learn to speak the right "love" language. The Five Love Languages for Singles reveals how different personalities express love in different ways.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I got more out of the website and the online test for The 5 Love Languages. I didn't really like the narrator's accent. I sped up the recording to make it more interesting/fun but the story was just slow, verbose and I got the point in the first few mins of every chapter. I do think it's helpful to pay attention to the person's love language and reciprocate that way but not sure you need to listen to a whole book about it.


    Has The Five Love Languages for Singles turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He has a good speaking voice but I didn't love the accent. I felt like this was supposed to be an instructive book and his Southern accent catered more to a more story-oriented type of recording which this was not. Though there are a lot of (unneeded) stories, this is supposed to be a constructive book right?


    Did The Five Love Languages for Singles inspire you to do anything?

    Yes. I do think I need to pay attention to friends' love languages but really it's hard to know. I guess you have to test people. Bc I tend to talk to a lot of my friends via phone, email or text.I may not get them gifts often enough to know that they prefer gifts. And who doesnt' love gifts? I do think it's helpful to know there are different ways though bc in a romantic relationship, I would be most happy with time spent versus gifts and most men don't know this!
