    Why are some people more successful than others? Self-confidence! What one great goal would you set if you knew you could not fail? What wonderful things would you want to do with your life if you were guaranteed success in anything you attempted? Your level of self-confidence determines the size of the goals you set, the energy and determination that you focus on achieving them, and the amount of persistence you apply to overcoming every obstacle.

    In this compelling new audiobook, John Mace describes the revolutionary Mace Energy Method, a powerful tool for emotional healing. Based on years of research and study, this simple but extraordinarily effective therapy will help you to locate and dis-create unknowingly created negative identities that prevent you from attaining your goals.

    Story

    If you want to learn about turning upsets into positive energy, or even about the Mace method, don't read this book. The author basically says that we all have multiple identities/roles that we take on, based on good and bad life experiences (a valid observation), and that his method allows you to immediately rid yourself of the negative identities that are holding you back or making you unhappy. He spends the entire book telling you how great his method is, but he never actually gets around to explaining what his method is or how it is done!

    Graham Greene explores corruption and atonement in this penetrating novel set in 1930s Mexico during the era of Communist religious persecutions. As revolutionaries determine to stamp out the evils of the church through violence, the last Roman Catholic priest is on the lam, hunted by a police lieutenant. Despite his own sense of worthlessness—he is a heavy drinker and has fathered an illegitimate child—he is determined to continue to function as a priest until captured.

    Story

    Although not his best known, this is probably Greene's best, and certainly most powerful, book, depicting the holiness of a priest who does know know he is holy, and in fact believes the opposite is true. Well worth listening to!

    Story

    The author gives a nice, actually quite good, framework for approaching basic prayer. Given that the word 'mystic" is in the title, however, I had hoped to hear a more esoteric discussion (along the lines of Thomas Keating for example), and had hoped he would refer more to, and draw from, the teachings of actual mystics to a greater degree.

    Most people who want to get better—at hitting golf shots, negotiating with clients, delivering presentations, or any other field of endeavor—seek out new information. They read a book, take a class, hire an expert tutor. But as Alan Fine has learned from many years of coaching athletes and businesspeople, this “outside-in” approach often doesn’t produce the results people want. More information becomes a distraction rather than a solution, and high performance remains elusive.

    This book offers some practical advice, suggesting some rather mechanical ways to approach situations, but does so without much inspiration. The best point made actually comes at the beginning of the book---that we often need to get out the the way of ourselves to achieve our best.

    Every now and then a self-help book comes along that questions the very nature of happiness, shakes the very foundation of all the things you hold dear, and forces you to reconsider every assumption you've ever made. This isn't one of those books. How to Do Everything and Be Happy is a book for ordinary people. With ordinary lives. It's for people who have been ambling along and wondering why they're not - well - just that little bit happier. It's a book for most people. It's a book for you.

    Story

    I did not find this book very useful. Since I had bought the book, I forced myself to listen to the whole thing, hoping to glean something of use, but was disappointed. One of his main recommendations is to take multiple days off, on a regular basis, for this or that purpose. For those of us who work more than a 40 hour week (or even for those who work just 40 hours) it is not a very practical suggestion. His other recommendations of writing down goals and of affirmations are not new. I cannot think of anything I took away from this book.

    Epictetus was a Greek Stoic philosopher. This short "handbook", which was actually written down by one of his pupils, is a guide to daily living. It has been read by countless people over the centuries because of it's sensibility and and it's easy application to daily living. Unlike some of his forefathers in philosophy, like Plato and Aristotle, he focuses on how to practically apply oneself on a philosophical level.

    The writing of Epictetus is as relevant, practical and powerful today as the day it was written. His writing should be required reading in all schools. He teaches how to build one's character, achieve excellence in, and take control of, one's life. He is not advocating the easiest life, but rather, the best life possible.

    Wishes Fulfilled is designed to take you on a voyage of discovery, wherein you can begin to tap into the amazing manifesting powers that you possess within you and create a life in which all that you imagine for yourself becomes a present fact. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores, for the first time, the region of your highest self and definitively shows you how you can truly change your concept of yourself, embark upon a God-realized way of living, and fulfill the spiritual truth that with God all things are possible - and “all things” mean that nothing is left out.

    This is not one of Dyer's best performances in terms of presentation--he usually has a more dynamic speaking style--- but the content, as with most of his books, remains inspiring. Over the last two decades, his writing has gradually evolved into one more and more interested in the spiritual and how to apply it to every day life.
