    This is a very different book: It is written for the dreamers of this world - the people who KNOW that something different is possible - but who have never had the tools before.... This is a Handbook for Generating Infinite Possibilities and Dynamic Change. For you. And the world. Ten years ago, Dr. Dain Heer started as a chiropractor in California, USA. Seemingly successful and happy, Dain Heer was on the verge of suicide when he came across Access Consciousness. With this modality, based on question and choice, Dr. Heer's life began to expand and grow with more ease and speed than even he could have imagined possible.

    Would you listen to Being You, Changing the World again? Why?

    I generally don't listen to books more than once, but for this one I will make an exception.
    I'd like to listen over and over again and make this part of my dna.


    What other book might you compare Being You, Changing the World to and why?

    I haven't really read/listened to anything quite like it.


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

    His spirit, his enthusiasm, his experience, his warmth, and authenticity.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Everyone and everything is connected, we are all energy, and some of the energies that affect me, thoughts that intrude upon me, may not be mine and I can return to sender!

    The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity. It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

    B.J. says: "A stunning achievement - for author and narrator"
    "I could see the characters for the entire book"

    Would you listen to The Goldfinch again? Why?

    Not sure I would listen again, there are so many books out there to enjoy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well-developed characters. I love long books that cover a long period of time. Honestly, I was a bit sorry to reach the end.


    Which character – as performed by David Pittu – was your favorite?

    Boris, Hobie, Theo. David Pittu's interpretation of each character was immensely helpful in following the sometimes complicated story line. Masterful storytelling!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Very near the end, when Hobie didn't turn his back on Theo. The description of the life of the subject of the painting, also near the end.
