  • Swann's Way

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs and 50 mins)
    • By Marcel Proust
    • Narrated By Neville Jason

    Swann's Way is the first part of Marcel Proust's monumental seven volume Remembrance of Things Past. Here, Proust's vision, psychological understanding and vivid powers of description combine to create one of the most poetic and magical works in all literature.

    Bob says: "Every moment comes alive"
    "Not bad"

    This book was a bit too wordy for me. I do love period pieces, and Proust does describe a situation in full detail. But his descriptions are sometimes so long that one forgets what he was talking about in the first place. The narrator does do a wonderful job of the different voices, bring the book to life making it feel almost like a play rather than an audio book.

  • Natural Cures They Don't Want You to Know About

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By Kevin Trudeau
    • Narrated By Kevin Trudeau

    Kevin Trudeau blows the lid off a nest of deception and double standards concerning general and individual health in this new book, Natural Cures They Don't Want You to Know About. Kevin has risked government prosecution to bring you the full story of an intricate conspiracy.

    Chrisman J. Harris says: "patient of natural healing"

    This should have been called "Why I Hate the FDA and the FTC." Althought the books gives a lot of alleged information on the mafia like tatics of the FDA and FTC, it fails to deliver on the title. Natural cures provides no natural cures. Kevin claims that the FDA and the FTC would not allow him to put it in the book. So why publish it under that title? He then goes on to say if you want to know the products that are the natural cures, then go to his web site and become a member and he would reveal all! To become a member on the site, you have to pay $9.99 a month or a lifetime fee of $999.00. However, after you pay for the book, which has no cure information, and then pay $9.99 for the membership, he still has no information because he says the FDA and the FTC has forbidden him to do so. Although this could be true, why not show the actual letter on the site that states this. Now it starts to sound like a big scam. Lots of talk and no proof. I was very disappointed, and was quite ready to defend the "Snake Oil" accusation of another reviewer, but now I'm not so sure. Yes I believe and know there are natural cures out there, but this book fails to provide them. A waste of a good Audible credit.

  • The Secrets of the Power of Intention

    • ORIGINAL (6 hrs and 10 mins)
    • By Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
    • Narrated By Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

    In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores intention as an all-pervading force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

    Capsaicin says: "Inspiring"

    Dr. D always has something new in every new book. This however is really a seminar based on the book and not a reading of his book "The Power of Intention". But his seminars are great, and funny. He makes you laugh, think and have hope. Although he does bring up some stories that he previously used in other seminars, the information here is fresh, and the stories are one you could listen to over and over. If you read or listened to his manifesting series, this compliments and adds to it perfectly. I listened to the entire 6 hours straight.

  • The Funny Thing Is...

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 5 mins)
    • By Ellen Degeneres
    • Narrated By Ellen Degeneres

    Ellen DeGeneres published her first book of comic essays, the #1 best selling My Point...and I Do Have One, way back in 1996. Not one to rest on her laurels, the witty star of stage and screen has since dedicated her life to writing a hilarious new book. That book is this audiobook.

    H. Dean says: "Ellen's latest book- The Funny Thing Is..."
    "Pure Ellen"

    This book was funny. If you want some VERY light listening about nothing that will make you laugh, this is for you. If you are looking for insights into the working of the world and politics and religion, look else where. Ellen is her typical rambling self in this book, which is narrated by herself. She does however provide some real "Hmmmm..." moments. But she just talks a lot of funny nothing. Very amising book for the train after a hard day at work.

  • Get Anyone to Do Anything and Never Feel Powerless Again

    • ABRIDGED (1 hr and 43 mins)
    • By David J. Lieberman
    • Narrated By Scott Bryce

    This revolutionary audiobook explains how to see through people, how to avoid being manipulated, and how to get the upper hand in every situation. Learn how to gain control and influence anyone, anytime.

    Art says: "Good practical advice"

    I bought this book in error. Stupid me. So I listened to it since I paid for it. This book is so predictable. The information provided was all plain common sense items. Nothing new. And the narrator - it sounded like I was listening to a 50's instruction tape. Save your money or your credits. If you really want some worth while information, buy a Wayne Dyer or Deepak Choopra and try a more spiritual approach rather than trying to manipulate people.
