    "Very insightful."

    This book was a requirement for one of my graduate courses. I decided to get the audio book because I tend to comprehend this format better than simply reading text.

    I must say this book is very insightful. The author is the narrator, and he has a great voice. It isn't dull, nor is it annoying. He also reads at a pace that you can understand. Plus the author makes you feel as if he is speaking directly to you.

    I really identified with several of the steps, but there were one or two that had a huge impact. One of them were "Act like an Ant." Yes, it sounds funny, but when you get to this section, you will surely see why it may be life changing.

    I have the hard copy of this book, and have referred to it often. This is not just a boring book about the bible, although there are a lot of references to parts of it. The minor references are not offensive, and is suitable for everyone. Get this audio book if you're looking for a change in your life.

  • Shareholder Values

    • UNABRIDGED (1 hr and 8 mins)
    • By Lisa Nichols
    • Narrated By Lisa Nichols

    Get practical tips and foundational principles to propel your business to new heights. CEO Space speaker Lisa Nichols focuses on shareholder value. Lisa answers the question, How do you give value to someone who is looking to invest in your company, whether money, their resources, or their time. Lisa teaches how each of us, on a personal and professional level invests and how we can do that wisely.

    SmartSysta says: "Riveting!"

    Lisa shares how to get going prior to starting a business. This has always been my problem. I had no idea where to start, nor what to do about it. She lays out tips for foundational work and this is the very piece of information that I needed to begin my entrepreneurial journey.

    Pros: Motivating, and interesting.

    Cons: She speaks entirely too fast, and she refers to prior sessions she has done with audience, which makes the listener feel like they have missed out on something important.

    Otherwise, this is a good audiobook in the right amount of time. Simply riveting!

Drawing on her wealth of experience as a feng shui, space clearing and clutter clearing consultant, Karen Kingston explains how clutter is stuck energy with far-reaching physical, mental, emotional and spiritual effects. This audio book will motivate you to clutter clear as never before, once you realise just how much your junk has been holding you back! This audio book edition contains all the latest updates and revisions, including two essential new chapters.

    John says: "I love this book!"
    "I can't get enough!"
    Where does Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have been listening to this audiobook over and over since I purchased it a month ago in March. It is now April, and I continue to listen to parts of it on a daily basis. Every time I listen, I learn something new. Therefore, I would rank it as one of my top audiobooks.

    What did you like best about this story?

    It is very thorough and covers several areas of a persons life besides just house clutter. For instance, the author touch base on finances, health, and even communications.

    What about Karen Kingston’s performance did you like?

    The author also narrated the audiobook. The narration was nice, but very frustrating at times because of the accent. In addition, some of the words are pronounced differently which makes it difficult to understand the message at times. For instance, common words like garage and reinvent were pronounced like "gear rage", and "rye invite".

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

    Yes, when the author spoke about health, it was especially touching. I have been battling an illness for quite some time and this audiobook opened my eyes to where the problems may be.

    jessica says: "Great Content, Needs Different Narrator in Future"
    "This information works!"
    What did you love best about The Beauty Detox Solution?

    The Glowing Green Smoothie benefits. I wanted to know exactly what this recipe could do for some of my ailments, and this book delivered as promised. This woman knows what she is talking about, and you can tell that she has done her research. It is all the matter of putting her suggestions into practice. I was skeptical at first, but as I continued to listen, her words just began to make sense.

    What did you like best about this story?

    This story can be listened to in any order, and you will still learn from it. I often go back to chapter 3 just to learn information that I may have missed. This is an excellent story for those who are battling diseases, conditions, symptoms, weight, and ailments of all kinds.

    Which character – as performed by Kimberly Snyder – was your favorite?

    Unfortunately, I did not like the narrator, Kimberly Snyder's voice. She sounded like she was stuffed up, and it was a little bit whiny as well. I eventually got used to it because I keep listening to her book repeatedly, but her voice will throw you off a little.

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

    I guess my extreme reaction was to purchase the book version as well. The recipes she mentions are excellent, and there is a lot of information in the book that is not included in the audiobook.

    Another reaction for me was the results that I'm seeing. For the past two weeks I have been making the "Glowing Green Smoothie". I already owned a Vita-mix so the blending was a snap. My blood pressure is high and I'm on medication for it. On a good day, I would average 139/100. Since drinking the smoothie, my blood pressure has been lowered to 113/75. This is excellent! I want to keep going this way because I don't want to develop additional heart conditions.

    I also noticed that it lowered my blood sugar levels as well. I went from 140+ to 97. I check my blood glucose regularly with my Accu-Chek, because I am diabetic. I'm astonished by these numbers.

    Any additional comments?

    If your goal is to improve your health, then this book is a MUST!
