    A new approach to investing based on how Wall Street insiders approach the market. The Indomitable Investor deconstructs the stock market as the public has come to know it and reconstitutes it from the inside out from the perspective of the fortunate few who dominate Wall Street. By revealing how top investors and traders think and act Steven Sears shows the stock market to be an undulating ocean of money, with seasoned investors reading the waves others cannot.

    This book is a great listen. It answers most of my questions about the stock market and stock trading. I had to listen to it many times to absorb the abundant tips and wisdom. Narrator's voice and reading pace is flawless. Highly recommended.

  • Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

    In the first half of life, we are naturally preoccupied with establishing ourselves; climbing, achieving, and performing. But as we grow older and encounter challenges and mistakes, we need to see ourselves in a different and more life-giving way. This message of falling down - that is in fact moving upward - is the most resisted and counterintuitive of messages in the world's religions. Falling Upward offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries: how those who have fallen down are the only ones who understand "up".

    Story

    When I selected this book, I had the impression from the summary that this is a new age spiritual book like those of Wayne Dyer or Eckhart Tolle. However, upon listening to it, I realised my mistake as references to God and quotations from the bible become more and more prevalent. The author then reveals that he was/is a catholic clergy and monk.
    As I am not a Christian, I would not have selected this book if I known the leanings of the writer. Clever marketing at play I think. That said, I rather enjoyed this book and listened to the whole book in one sitting without once feeling overwhelm by it religious overtones.I like the open mindedness of the writer and his lack of arrogance.
    If you are like me, not religious but open to other people's religion, I highly recommend the book 'Have a little faith' by Mitch Albon. It moved me to tears.

    First published in 1994, The Warren Buffett Way gave investors their first in-depth look at the innovative investment and business strategies behind this living legend's spectacular success. Tracing Warren Buffett's career from the beginning, Hagstrom revealed to listeners exactly how, starting with an initial investment of only $100, Buffett built a business empire worth $19.4 billion.

    As a novice investor, I had taken a gambling mentality to stock trading until I read my first book on Warren Buffett. It was like an awakening and completely changed and educated me on how to look at stocks. I am forever grateful for the existence of this grand master.
    This book is superbly written and I also like the narrator's slightly dreamy style. Overall, a very educational and enjoyable experience.

    In The Art of Presence, Eckhart guides you through seven hours of transformational insights that allow "presence to naturally arise" in you. With his one-of-a-kind instruction, you will learn how to ground yourself in the vibrancy of your "inner body" while simultaneously breaking free from the illusion of separation from the outside world.

  • Meltdown: A Look at Why the Economy Tanked and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

    The media tells us that "deregulation" and "unfettered free markets" have wrecked our economy and will continue to make things worse without a heavy dose of federal regulation. But the real blame lies elsewhere. In Meltdown, best-selling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr., unearths the real causes behind the collapse of housing values and the stock market---and it turns out the culprits reside more in Washington than on Wall Street.

    What a mess we have gotten ourselves into and all the governments in the US and EU are doing is 'kicking the can down the road' instead of finding and implementing real solutions. But then again our political system of 4-year term governments doesn't lend itself to dramatic and meaningful changes. Everyone is just buying time.

    I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It is well written and I was intrigued from start to finish. The narration is superb and I highly recommend it to everyone.

    The theme of this four-day retreat: "It's Always Now" The Now is inseparable from who you are at the deepest level. It is the prerequisite of Being. As you listen to the words on this tape, you participate in the retreat. To "retreat" means to step back - not only from the outer world, but also from the world in your head, the thinking mind. Allow the sound of the words to take you beyond words and beyond sound to the stillness within.

    I have always been a great fan of Eckhart Tolle and enjoy listening to his talks in his retreats.
    However in this audiobook, from session three, there is a member of the audience whose over-enthusiastic laughter became more and more crazed as the session went on. It was funny at first but his incessant outbursts become quite irritating and annoying as the session progressed. I was rather distracted on my first listening and had to consciously block his outburst out on subsequent listenings. It was quite an effort.

    There's a rebel within you. It's the part of you that already knows how to break free of fear and unhappiness. This rebel is the voice of your own awakened mind. It's your rebel buddha - the sharp, clear intelligence that resists the status quo. It wakes you up from the sleepy acceptance of your day-to-day reality and shows you the power of your enlightened nature. It's the vibrant, insightful energy that compels you to seek the truth.

    One of the best books written about Buddhism and it's place in modern life. It is easily accessible and yet deeply profound. The narration is flawless. The reading pace and voice are perfect for the subject. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this beautifully crafted audible.
