    The larger-than-life lumberjack swaggers through the forests of North America with his faithful companion, Babe the Blue Ox, by his side. Hear about the pancake griddle that's over an acre wide and the truly tall tale of how the Great Lakes and Grand Canyon were created.

    If you could sum up Paul Bunyan in three words, what would they be?

    An American Tail.


    What does Jonathan Winters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice always seems to bring a story alive.


    Any additional comments?

    We need to learn from this story when Paul says we cut down too many tree's without replacing them.

    I finished the Power of Now and jumped right into this book. I like that Deepak talks about letting go of all your inhibitions and just let love flow. For many of us we get into relationships and at first they’re fast and furious. It’s all good, but then we get married and we let our Ego’s get in the way. Read this book to learn how to get past your Ego and just enjoy your partner.

    To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

    Story

    Years ago I was going to all kinds of retreats trying to find myself. I was also doing work where I was looking for the same thing. Then one day when someone invited me to another retreat I said ‘no’ because a little voice inside me said I didn't get what I was looking for from the others what will make this one different. I didn't understand then, but I do know. Here Eckhart Tolle gives us this answer and that is if the same thing isn't working try something new and I did! I also got the results I was looking for!

    I’ve read a hundred books on the subject of self improvements and this is the first one that talks of woman and why we as men look down on them when we should be looking up to them or realizing the truth concerning women.

    I recommend this book as I've found practicing the simplest suggestion contained here has helped improve my life.

    For anyone struggling to break the cycle of addiction comes the groundbreaking approach from The Chopra Center, the world-renowned facility that has successfully helped thousands of people change their lives for the better. Chopra Center cofounder and medical director David Simon, M.D., and best-selling author and personal-growth expert Deepak Chopra outline their revolutionary approach - one that defies outmoded beliefs about recovery, particularly that people 'are' their addictions or that they are powerless to control them.

    I used the lessons here to deal with bad habits I've been trying to get over for years. By going through the steps in this book you will learn to get rid of any ‘addiction’ and a bad habit is an ‘addiction’. You will also get a history that is taught at all AA/NA meetings. It is important to understand the history of how we came to the current ways to free people from addictions of any kind. Just remember that this is not an easy path as your addictions will fight back to keep where they are.

    After we die our souls or ‘higher selves’ go on to another life. There is plenty of evidence of this from children being able to tell people of places and events they could never have seen or been part of. To using facial recognition technologies on photo from the past 200 years.

    Here Deepak and Shakti talk about how we are here to help each other and why were here to help each other. Once you stop looking at you’re here one time and gone and start looking at this life as one lesson in a series to you begin to understand the soul and relationships.

    Here is a condensed version of a much longer book that you can’t get anymore from the publisher. I used this book as a ‘developing the leader within you’ refresher course. I would normally have to listen to 6 books to get what is contained in this one book, but here is a condensed version of all those books in one place. I found the book reminded me of something’s I’d forgotten or let slip through the cracks. Spend some time and go through it and it will refresh your memory as well to develop the leader within you.

    Story

    Here Deepak Chopra answers questions from individuals who ask for help in relationships. For those of us that have been in long term or long lasting relationships this book will help. I warn you that Deepak doesn’t pull any punches. He tells you like it is and is very honest. When reading this book you’ll see how Deepak Chopra deals with some very difficult situations that many of us find ourselves in, but rather than dealing with them we’ll walk away. Walking away doesn’t deal with the situation or the core issue. All it does is make it worse or hides it until it can surface later when we least expect it. Take some free advice and keep an open mind while listening to this book. Listen to what other people are saying and learn from them and you’ll be grateful you did.

    In "Call of the Wild", a domestic dog is kidnapped from his comfortable life on a California estate and thrown into the wild north woods. Buck, half St. Bernard and half Scottish shepherd, is a strong dog but not accustomed to the harsh life of the north and he must fight for survival. He learns how to work hard; how to dig a hole in a snowbank to stay warm; how to eat anything no matter how loathsome; how to scent the weather; how to break ice to find water; and most importantly, how to survive cruelty.

    Story

    I have been going through and listening to all the classics that have been made into movies. Here is another example where the book is thousands of time better than any movie. In the movies they leave, so much out that it actually ruins the story now that I’ve read the book. Here you will read a story that takes you into the mind of dog before people were even considering dog psychology. You will journey through the gold rush through the eyes and thoughts of Bucks and when it’s done you’ll love the story. I recommend this for parents of kids interesting in reading it to their kids.
