Unabridged non-fictions can sometimes bog down in details...this one does. The topic and coverage is fascinating and well read. Some of the author's research would have been better summarized. Recommend the written work for professionals in the field. An abridged version would be better for the lay people.
I would recommend this book to anyone who cares about their future and that of their children. It is approachable and understandable even by middle schoolers...and should be.
I would compare this straightforward analysis of how things work the way they do with Something for Nothing by Brian Tracy, but its story-telling style is like Og Mandino's work in its appeal and charm.
This is the first time I have read/listened to these authors.
Isles of Plenty, Oceans of Poor
Anyone with a mind that cares about how the world is changing, what works and what does not work and why should read/listen to this work.
This is stunning. I have seen much chinannigans in the corporate world but this pales in comparison to this stunning account of what this fellow was asked to do for Queen and Country. This book was a wonderful listen, the author relates how it happened in what seems to be a shocking side of historical events. You get to live inside his skin for a bit and feel the conflicts with morality and honor. What really goes on in Washington and in clandestine quarters we all wonder about with curiosity. Sometimes discovering what does makes us question our moral center. This book forces this issue and reveals what does occur. With the EU and UN raising the issue of the US "Empire" it is interesting to see what really occurs and how it is justified. Make up your own mind about the moral issues but it is a fabulous listen and will leave you grateful that you do not carry such dillemas in your everyday work.
Wow, much more value than I expected from the title. I stumbled on this book and am ecstatic that I did.
This book/audio should be experienced by everyone for one or more of the following three reasons:
1) If you are happily going about life, not on a spiritual quest, never had a mystical moment and believe that you are just like everyone else, then this book will give you insights on how to experience more life and help you answer many of your difficult questions that you seldom think about.
2) If you have had a mystical experience, remember it and want to get back to that "state" again, then this book shows you how to, why you should want to and what amazing things await you when you do.
3) If you are on a spiritual quest, stop here. You need not search further. Eckhart gives you your answers in clear English for the Western reader. This is an amazing find for you.
Now, the down side. You will be distracted by Eckhart's accent. After a while in the book I realized why (although he never really speaks much about himself). Realized beings in the "state" have a breathy, deliberate, considered and generally slow way of speaking. This can lull you to sleep, but listern to the words and you will be fine.
This is the real McCoy. He knows. Listen.
I liked the visual and action aspects of this audio. Lots of creative descriptions that let your mind fill in the details. Well done. Cannot wait for the movie...
