  • The Synchronicity Key: The Hidden Intelligence Guiding the Universe and You

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 28 mins)

    Using history, astrology, and synchronicity theory as well as concepts such as fractals, spiritual geometry, quantum physics, and other new research, Wilcock shows that there is a hidden architecture within time, guiding individuals and nations through a system of enlightenment Joseph Campbell called the Hero’s Journey. Historical events occur in shockingly precise, repeating cycles of time as a result. Once we understand and identify the hidden laws governing the fates of individuals and nations through seemingly random "synchronicity", we are left with a remarkable blueprint of how best to lead our lives in this uncertain and confusing world.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was happy to get my hands on this book, but the more I listened to it, the more it seemed repetitive to me. There are many things cited again and again over the hours, wish it was a little shorter now..


    Has The Synchronicity Key turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I am looking forward to reading more books in this genre


    What didn’t you like about David Wilcock’s performance?

    The pace of the book, it had been stretched out.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The book bored me after a while.

  • Little Women

    Little Women follows the lives of four sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March - and is loosely based on the author's childhood experiences with her three sisters. The book was an immediate commercial and critical success. Little Women has three major themes: domesticity, work, and true love. It has been made into innumerable adaptations for stage and screen and is an American classic.

    What did you love best about Little Women?

    I love this book more than some others as this is the book I used to read A LOT during my early teens, even though I didn't understand some things as clearly as I do now. I remember making warm bread and tea to read this book, and both of these are linked in my mind so much that every time I pick up this book I yearn for a cup of warmth that I felt in the past. The narrator has a motherly voice, and you get a warm feeling listening to the book in her voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best is the links it has got with the history of mankind, how good things used to be in the past, and hope that I can bring up my daughters as well as the ones in this book.


    Which character – as performed by Victoria Mcgee – was your favorite?

    Her narration was superb overall. The manly voice doesn't suit her when she reads out their dialogues though.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    None at all.


    Any additional comments?

    I can listen to this book again and again! And I will!

  • Winners Never Cheat

    Everyone cheats. Cuts corners. Tells lies. Maybe it was different once. Not anymore. If you want to succeed nowadays, you have to make compromises. Right? Wrong. You can succeed at the highest levels, without sacrificing the principles that make life worth living.

    In Winners Never Cheat Huntsman tells you how he did it, and how you can, too. This audiobook is about remembering why you work, and why you were chosen to lead. It's about finding the bravery to act on what you know is right and building teams with the same courage. It's about winning. The right way.

    Where does Winners Never Cheat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks among the tops ones. It has encouraged me to give out more and more, I also made a list of things while listening to the last chapter, and then packed them to give them away for those more in need than I am.


    What other book might you compare Winners Never Cheat to and why?

    I would compare the religious scriptures to this book, as the morals taught in this book are as high as those that are taught by the holiest of books.


    Which character – as performed by Stow Lovejoy – was your favorite?

    N/A


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have to take my time with this book, it requires one to pause and think and then take some action over what has been said. It is a good book for teenagers, students, parents, teachers, professionals, and those who are wondering what to do what the things they have, or how to reduce the clutter around them, and how to attain more peace and spirituality.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first author that I have heard who holds all religions in equal esteem and regards, and I thank him for that.

    In a constantly changing, hyper-competitive world, leadership is more important than ever. Yet few people have what it takes to inspire, develop, and guide others. In this presentation, Robin Sharma shares the leadership lessons that he gives to clients such as Nike, Microsoft, and NASA.

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

    I recommended this book to my father, my brother, and my friends! This is a great book to listen to, that lays down practical tips for one to follow; it has surely fueled my passion.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Extraordinary Leadership?

    I like the speaker's humility, real-life lessons, stories from around the world literally! Especially the quote "Nothing fails like success". Robin Sharma shares great tips for beginners, amateur, and professionals.

    Also, that he loves his kids so much, and he shared a very simple lesson from his son. Like father, like son!


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first one and I wanted to give this author a shot, I love it, and I will be buying more audiobooks.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "There's great power in embracing change"


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Robin Sharma, you made my day, and are my favorite speaker and about to be added to the list of my permanent speakers. Thank you for sharing your tips!
