    The Dalai Lama will tell you that happiness is the purpose of life, and that "the very motion of our life is toward happiness." How to get there has always been the question. With the help of a psychiatrist, he now gets the message across in a context we can easily understand.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book opened my eyes to the amazing possibility of true happiness! I have recommended and will continue to recommend this audio book to all of my friends.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Art of Happiness?

    I loved listening to the story of the grieving mother. How true it is that often we feel that we are the only ones suffering.


    What does Howard C. Cutler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Cutler adds a level of connection to his Holiness that I would not have experienced reading the book. His questions and his tone brought the experiences to life.

    September has longed to return to Fairyland after her first adventure there. And when she finally does, she learns that its inhabitants have been losing their shadows - and their magic - to the world of Fairyland-Below.

Fans of Valente’s bestselling first Fairyland book will revel in the lush setting, characters, and language of September’s journey.

    Have you listened to any of S. J. Tucker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    S.J. Tucker is a true performer. Every character was brought to life with his or her own nuances. Truly an enjoyable listen.

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Story
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Odd Thomas with his childish innocence and uncanny ability to surprise you with his "knowing." Observing him from a distance you would think him simple minded, but once you got to know him you understood his compassion, his drive for justice, and the matter of fact way that he accepts his gift. Dean Koontz crafts a character who simply takes the next indicated step because it's there to be taken, despite the danger, despite the terror, or the mediocrity surrounding him. As you listen to the audiobook you are drawn into his reality. A terrifying world of evil, evil not stemming from the supernatural realm, but from the a society anesthetized to violence.

    Story
    What did you love best about We Were the Mulvaneys?

    The truth of everyday life. A fictional story so real I couldn't help but relate to every character. I found myself questioning how I would have reacted to the rape and the actions of every person affected. Life often has no reason, people don't know why they do what they do. This book follows each member of the family without trying to find out "why", we simply are challenged to accept what is. So often in life we never get the answer to the why, yet we live and react, and keep going. That is what made this book so real to me. We didn't delve into the psyche of each character; they were our neighbors, an acquaintance, a distant relative. We stood on the outside and wept for them, raged for them, laughed for them, and ultimately cheered for them. Why? Because they survived.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were several moments when I wanted to shout at Marianne, you are smart, you are beautiful, you do deserve the praise you are given. So broken she was by her family's actions, real honest actions, that I could empathise with her doubts.

    In Excuses Begone! Dr. Wayne W. Dyer reveals how to change lifelong, self-defeating thinking patterns that prevent you from living at the highest levels of success, happiness, and health. You may know what to think but find it terribly difficult to change thinking habits that have been with you since childhood. This business of changing habituated thinking patterns is really the business of eliminating the same old tired excuses.
