  • The Naked Buddha: A Practical Guide to the Buddha's Life and Teachings

    Story

    For the many people who are interested in learning more about Buddhism, here is a primer on Buddhism and Buddhist practice written in a deceptively simple manner, with an engaging, gentle humor and flavor. Adrienne Howley's purpose is to demystify Buddhism, stripping away the layers of ritual and iconography that have grown up around it over the centuries, and to present the original, basic tenets and practices.

    Story

    Very good listen, the narrator’s voice is lovely and captivating. The story of this Buddhist Nun is very fascinating and her insight and wisdom has been immensely helpful in my new journey into the Buddhist philosophy. Great for those that are just starting to travel the path of the Buddha. She is very simple and matter of fact, states her wisdom plainly and clearly, yet holds your interest to a high level. I have listening to this book at least three times, every time finding new insight and great wisdom.

    Today the Glock pistol has been embraced by two-thirds of all U.S. police departments, glamorized in countless Hollywood movies, and featured as a ubiquitous presence on prime-time TV. It has been rhapsodized by hip-hop artists, and coveted by cops and crooks alike. Created in 1982 by Gaston Glock, an obscure Austrian curtain-rod manufacturer, and swiftly adopted by the Austrian army, the Glock pistol, with its lightweight plastic frame and large-capacity spring-action magazine, arrived in America at a fortuitous time.

    Story

    I am in law enforcement and carry a Glock every day, both on and off duty. Listing to this book was very fun, exciting, informative and relevant. Well worth the time and I am glad I listened to the book.

    Very good narrator as well. Easy to listen to.

  • Kabbalah, Science, and the Meaning of Life: Because Your Life Has Meaning

    Story

    Kabbalah, Science, and the Meaning of Life traces the milestones of the evolution of science with which we are familiar, such as Newton's and Einstein's theories, but goes further to present the science of Kabbalah as the basis for understanding the hidden parts of reality that scientists are now discovering. While other sciences research the definable world around us, Kabbalah teaches us how the spontaneous changes occurring within us affect our surrounding reality.

    Story

    Very fascinating…the philosophy is very interesting and coming from a Christian background was kind of new and exciting. The references to What the Bleep Do We Know where right on and Kabbalah’s inter woven concepts with natural laws are certainly interesting. I would recommend this book for anybody seeking information on the philosophy of the Kabbalah. Although I warn you, you must be very open minded.

    Story

    Simply, quickly, and easily…will change your live. These teachings of enlightenment are the base foundation to The Secret and Napoleon Hill’s Think Big and Grow Rich. The book is easy to ready and listen to, flows well and states specific ideas, concepts and truths clearly. Let me say that again, clearly. No round adopt, guessing game of analogies and allegories. A must for any true student of life!
