    Imagine, just 12 weeks from now, having the lean, healthy body you've always wanted and not having to turn your life upside down to get it. Imagine having the energy to be at your peak from dawn to dusk, having the confidence to do all the things you've been putting off, having the certainty to make the right decision at the right time, and knowing that you really do have the power to change, not just your body, but anything in this world you set your mind to.

    I did this program years back and it worked for me, just like in the before after picts...and I know it works if you follow it. I want to put myself on a new program and while I mostly know what to do, I wanted some refreshers and motivation.

    This audio book is no where Near as good as the hard copy book and I feel like I just wasted my time listening to it.

    At best, I would say do both books to compliment each other, but this audio book on its own is fairly useless.

    I am very glad I got this book. I think it started a bit slow, and could have skipped the first 1.5 hours which is more about the authors personal story. But some might like the background stuff.
    I am fairly self educated on healthy clean eating, and think what I heard here is solid and quality information. I think every-one, in the world, could benefit from the information provided and practicing the cleanse and re-balancing of the digestive system.
    I googled the book and see he also has some You Tube videos, check them out first to see if you like his style. He also has a website selling a supplement program, but I was able to get enough info out of the book to design my own, since I dont live in North America I have to make due with what is available to me here.
    All in all, a good book and worth a listen if you are looking to improve your health in a very real way.

    I have been listing to this book 5 nights a week at bedtime for months. My lucid dreaming has not changed or increased.
    It is pleasant enough to listen to, and more of a meditative way to fall asleep, but didn't seem to help me with gaining more consciousness in my dreams than normal.

    Conversations with God is Neale Donald Walsch's account of his direct conversations with God, beginning in 1992 while Walsch was immersed in a period of deep depression. He composed a letter to God in which he vented his frustrations, and much to his surprise, even shock, God answered him. Focusing on the universal truths that influences all life, Conversations with God offers a picture of the way life could be better.

    I like this series mostly because it is right inline with my own belief system I suppose. If you havent read the 1st book, I do suggest getting that one before Book Two...but it doesnt really matter.
    I dont think it matters if this guy is talking to God, or if he is just talking to himself (one in the same if you are of that mindset) but I like the hard questions and the seemly obvious answers that we tend to forget. Great reminders for me, and us all.
    I love these books, and recommend them to anyone with an open mind. I also find them quiet witty at times...turns out even "God" likes a laugh here and there.
    Honestly though, I think I preferred the hard copy books, which is usually not the case with me.
    Only negative for me - The voice of "God" switches between 2 people, and while I understand the point behind that it was still a bit annoying to listen to.

    Jillian Michaels has probably the best grasp on healthy eating, and getting fit realistically of any author I have read on this subject.
    I like that she goes through all the myths and "facts" we have all heard and even lived by, and tells you if they are crap or not, but also Why.
    She also looks at the big picture of how its a lot more then just eating and exercise that affects our efforts. Hormones, even food packaging...lots of good solid info here and I recommend this book to anyone wanting to educate themselves and/or lose some weight.
    Tip - look her up on You Tube for free fitness videos.

    What if charisma could be taught? For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial. What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.

    Craig Beck is a well-regarded family man with two children, a nice home and a successful media career. A director of several companies & at one time the trustee of a large children’s charity. Outwardly, Craig was a highly successful & functioning professional man in spite of a ‘2 bottles of wine a night’ drinking habit. For 20 years he struggled to control his drinking, all the time refusing to label himself an alcoholic because he didn't believe he met the stereotypical image that the word portrayed.

    I would say I am glad I bought this book...as a social drinker who would not classify themselves as an alcoholic. However I can clearly see where drinking has a negative impact on my life and has to go if I want to achieve the goals I actually care about...weight management and other personal goals that require focus and energy.

    I thought the author was a bit over the top at times, but his message rang true and there is some good information and common sense stuff you might need to hear, if you are struggling with some issues based around this socially acceptable drug habit.

    Has it "cured me" of my desire to drink? Sure...until I go out Sat night. BUT I will listen to it a few times more to help me in truly changing how I look at it, and see it for the poison it really is.

    Good luck :)

    I listend to this twice in a row, so I can say I quite enjoyed it. It is in line with my personal beliefs, so if its not in line with yours you may need to take it with a grain of salt. In either case, there is good info here for us all.
    Better and truer explanations of manifesting than the Secret, this is the real stuff.
    I highly recommend for anyone wanting to re-connect (or maybe connect for the first time) with the power within them, and how to realistically access it.

    The South Beach Diet isn't complicated, and it doesn't require that you go hungry. You'll enjoy normal-size helpings of meat, poultry, and fish. You'll also eat eggs, cheese, nuts, and vegetables. Snacks are required. You'll learn to avoid the bad carbs, like white flour, white sugar, and baked potatoes. Best of all, you'll lose that stubborn belly fat first!

    Story

    I read this book about 5 years back and have done the diet twice (which worked). Over time I had forgotten it and gone back to bad habits and started gaining weight again. Even though I know the basics, I bought the audiobook as a reminder/freshen up on the details.
    This diet works, and most of the info here is good (I do not agree with it all, for example he uses fake sugar replacement in place of sugar when having a treat, and I know that ingredient is an appetite stimulant and possibly a cause of serious health concerns).

    But overall, the foods he eliminates and slowly incorporates back in is not rocket science but I think accurate, and like I said, followed exactly, it works.

    If this approach is new to you, you may want to grab a hard copy of the recipe book too...or google ideas for what to eat with the foods allowed.

    Note - he cuts out fruit the first 2 weeks, which I dont 100% agree with for health reasons, but it does make a difference in the first phase in getting over sugar cravings and stimulating weight loss. You incorporate some back in after the first 2 weeks.

    I dont know how great this would be for vegan's though, a lot of the diet is based around proteins.

    Good luck!
