    The Cave and the Light reveals how two Greek philosophers became the twin fountainheads of Western culture, and how their rivalry gave Western civilization its unique dynamism down to the present.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cave and the Light to be better than the print version?

    Definitely, the most engaging audio book I heard so far. Herman is a master of his art in delivering the history of Western philosophy in the most easy to read and listen to manner.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ease at which Herman is able to deconstruct the most complex philosophical ideas into sentences where most of us would easily absorb and understand.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All are connected as the story seems to the reader to be one eternal struggle between Plato and Aristotle through the centuries.


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

    The style Herman uses in delivering this tour de force of philosophy is so gripping you feel like traveling with him through the ages.


    Any additional comments?

    The final verdict, this should be a required reading for all those interested in the history of Western civilization and the men and ideas that shaped it.

    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
    Would you listen to The Power of Now again? Why?

    Absolutely yes. It's reaffirming to know that the NOW is all there is and will ever be. This is an audio book that you should always keep close to you as you go on living. We face many challenges in life, the Power of Now makes full sense of them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's logic and the power of the message. It all starts from within and it all ends there. The one thing every human on earth is searching for is closer to us than we really thought. Our inner most being is where everything happens and once we are in touch with it we have made a giant step towards God.


    What about Eckhart Tolle’s performance did you like?

    The voice and manner in which Eckhart Tolle delivers this audio book is hypnotizing. You can't escape the effects of the words on your mind and soul.


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

    With every section you find points that almost seem to be one of your personal experiences. You can't help yourself from affirming those moments with a spontaneous spurt of a loud "YES". My advice to you when listening to this audio book is to be by yourself, as those kind of reactions to the words are guaranteed to attract attention.
