    With his best seller Awakening to Zero Point, earth scientist and author Gregg Braden offered a stunning theory: that our planet has now entered a rare geophysical phase predicated millennia ago by ancient cultures across the globe - a "Shift of the Ages", that is transforming your consciousness even as you read this. On Beyond Zero Point, Braden shares new scientific research essential to understanding the prophecies of the Essenes, Hopis, Mayans, Egyptians, and others. Hidden within these ancient teachings, asserts Braden, is a universal set of sacred technologies meant specifically for us at this crucial point in human history. The secret of these tools is learning to see how the outer world mirrors the inner conditions of our consciousness. With this knowledge, each of us can transcend ordinary awareness, align ourselves with the external forces around us, and directly participate in the great challenges that lie ahead.

    Overall

    global changes in genetics, geomagnetics, climate and others, that used to occur trough hundreds of thousands of years (or even millons) are now beying documented happening in one or two of our generations. This is happening even as the media talks about something else.
    This book is precise and right to the point. Filled with easy to understand facts (not science fiction) and I assure you it will open your eyes wide and make you whant to investigate a little further. An EXCELLENT starting point, but after this you will spend some time on the net searching and learning more and more since this is a subject you can not ignore. Narrated by the author, he does a very good job at keepeng you focused.

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Overall

    This is more a warning than a review, since this was one of my first audio books many months ago and I still cannot make it past the first 3 hours. I'm sure after more than 800 reviews this book must be great, but trust me, it takes some patience. I did books of more than 8 hours with no problem, but this one was a waste of money for me, so if you click to purchase, keep in mind you could have herd 3 or 4 good books on the time it took you to listen to this one (also, I'm sure, a good book).

    In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes his ultimate journey - into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It's a dazzling quest, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization.

    Brent says: "This audio edition is abridged!"
    "Only for a FAST mind"
    Overall

    this book takes you from A-Z in no time, it very much reminds me of a documentary series called CONECTIONS aired on the discovery channel a few years ago where they told one story connected with the next and the next and so on. It is very well red and if you pay close attention to it you'll find you simply cannot drop it!
    I truly recomend spending your time and money here.

    In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles (micro-robots) has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.

    Brian says: "the BEST reader EVER, excellent book"

    The guy reading this book is just AMAZING he plays every voice every situation with an intensity that is overwelming! and this book is just the first of audible that I could simply NOT drop until I was finnished. It gets a little too hollywood stile in the end but itdoesn't fail to grab you.

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "easy and simple yet profound and VERY interesting"
    Overall

    this book will give you a glimpse into how impotant and yet insignificant we are. It is very easy to understand and very well narrated. I truly recommend it and hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It made rush hour (wich in Mexico city is 20 hrs per day avrg) a precious thing that was allways welcome!
