    With a spectacular array of true stories and case studies of the hidden benefits of mess, A Perfect Mess overturns the accepted wisdom that tight schedules, organization, neatness, and consistency are the keys to success.

    It is not often that you hear a fresh new outlook about how "things" work, or how they can be made better. This has done more to relive the stress about my own life than any other so-called self-help audio book I've heard. In my work I have also introduced some of this concepts with a surprisingly positive interest. This is a must read.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Overall

    Lost Symbol sounds like Dan Brown's version of 24, with the bad guy being the main character, a few sprinkles of Family Feud, repetitious, and incredibly padded in many of the scenes.

    In this powerful audiobook, Lisa breaks down her plan for listeners. She shares her own remarkable story and prescribes a program of specific exercises and action steps for readers to learn from their past and move toward a courageous future.

    Sara says: "Deeply gifted speaker and motivator"
    "I was not inspired but depressed"
    Overall

    Hearing so much about her personal life, and her overly dramatized and tedious description about her imposible to count misfortunes, I can only conclude that this book was writen to make us feel better about ourselfs, by showing us how much worse off we could be.

    And about her early childhood, why bring up such horrible events in such detail? To sell books? Is this is the raising of the bar for self help books? This book just depressed me.

    This incomparable audio program, based on Dr. Dyer's book Manifest Your Destiny, will guide you to new levels of self-awareness and self-mastery. Dr. Dyer explains the four specific pathways to success, discipline, wisdom, unconditional love, and surrender, and shows how you can apply them to your life in order to be more powerful, peaceful, and conscious than you could have ever imagined!

    "Slow & Lack Of Focus"
    Overall

    Big waste of my credit. I could not once get into it. Most of the 2 hours was about his personal 'stuff' combined with quotes from Jesus, Dalai Lama, etc... plus a couple of tear-jerking stories for good measure. The so called four pathways are not even mentioned as such in the book. Is almost as if some one gave him a microphone and told the author to just improvised. This is my greatest Audible dissappointment.

    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation: the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history.

    Cynthia says: "Complicated and Not Good for Listening!"
    "Interesting but flamboyant"
    Overall

    I found the stories entertaining, with some interesting visuals and even funny situations. Frankly though, and I don't mean to insult my intelligence, I found the author’s writing style hard to follow, and rather flamboyant at times. The author's use of the English language is quite impressive, but does he have to make a delivery effort to make it difficult to understand?

    This audio book is very difficult listen when it shouldn't. The stories are at times interesting, but frankly not too exciting, hence the need to be flamboyant.
