    Recommended listening. Whenever Deepak seems to get into the groove of something, it's like he stops before making his salient point, thus giving the suggestion that more will come in a future title.

    In this engrossing and enlightening debut, Blake Healy shares the story of his unusual gift. Having been born with the ability to see angels and demons as regularly and clearly as anything else in waking life, his journey has been one of unique perspective and unique challenge. It is an amazingly clear view into the realm of the spirit, as well as a true testament to the power of living a life in pursuit of deeper relationship with God.

    Would you listen to The Veil again? Why?

    Yes, and that's unusual for me as I have a voracious appetite for new audio content.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    If you've ever seen the original Ghostbusters movie and recall the see-through green creatures munching on things, then this is what I think was being described by the author in some coffee shop.


    What does Blake K. Healy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The book itself was excellent, but the hours-long radio-show-like commentary after the book was even better. I think the commentary part is exclusive to the audiobook and it involves three or four friends, including the author.


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

    I was extremely pleased to have found a title which really stands out from the abundant, mushy, lookalike crowd out there in this category.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe that this title will become a thought-leader for its category soon. It deserves it. The ebook is currently available to Kindle Unlimited customers for free, so if you're on the fence and belong to KU, then check it out that way, but the author's own reading is great. Again, the post-book commentary is something not to miss, so, if you can afford it, just go for the audiobook. To the author: GREAT JOB!

    In You're Trying Too Hard, Joey Lott explains exactly that - you are trying too hard, and you will never achieve your goals precisely because you already are freedom. Stop trying everything under the sun to bring yourself to true enlightenment. Stop searching for wiser, more special teachers. Stop worrying about lineage and ego and diet and the self. Stop everything. Remain only with direct experience, and let true clarity at least reveal itself.

    Take any concept that you value and imagine someone telling you that it doesn't matter because it doesn't exit, then repeat that process for 95 minutes, and you have the content of this title. What I don't understand is how there are so many favorable reviews for this title, unless...

    Circle of Treason is the first account written by CIA agents who were key members of the CIA team that conducted the intense "Ames Mole Hunt." Sandra Grimes and Jeanne Vertefeuille were two of the five principals of the CIA team tasked with hunting one of their own and were directly responsible for identifying Ames as the mole, leading to his arrest and conviction.

    The monotone voice really wore me down. I was hoping for a lot more detail, but that was dashed once I realized the book was written by an actual CIA employee, so it was heavily stripped of essentials, likely due to security. I expected much more.

    This work of speculative nonfiction combines meticulous fact-finding from historian/researcher Richard M. Dolan and forward-leaning scenarios from journalist/screenwriter Bryce Zabel on the world's most mind-bending subject. The authors predict radical changes after official acknowledgment that at least some UFOs are intelligently controlled craft from somewhere other than Earth.

    I strongly recommend this book. There were so many topics which I hadn't ever considered, such as the wave of lawsuits that could happen and which parties could be impacted. Law enforcement... wow... I plan to listen to it again as it was that good. For me, that's rare.

    In 1942, the Brooklyn-born Erickson was a millionaire oil mogul who volunteered for a dangerous mission inside the Third Reich: Locating the top-secret synthetic oil plants that kept the German war machine running. To fool the Nazis, Erickson played the role of a collaborator. He hung a portrait of Hitler in his apartment and "disowned" his Jewish best friend, then flew to Berlin, where he charmed Himmler and signed lucrative oil deals with the architects of the Final Solution.

    In 2003, a Roper Organization survey revealed that 33 million Americans may be abductees. Aliens in the Backyard is their story. One evening in 1981, Connie J Cannon was on I-75 with her young son, en route to their new home in Florida, when they suddenly found themselves on a military base, with a man in uniform holding a gun to her head as three Grays stood nearby. In 1979, Diane Fine was on her way from upstate New York to Vermont to see an obstetrics specialist for her high risk pregnancy, and experienced two hours of missing time. When she was finally examined at the clinic, she was told wasn't pregnant.

    Flying Saucer to the Center of Your Mind is a collection of magazine articles and lectures by the man many consider to be not only the 20th century’s premiere investigator of all things unusual and “Fortean,” but also our very own 20th-century “Mark Twain”: John A. Keel. Many of the articles in this anthology and its companion volumes, "The Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone" and "Searching for the String," were revolutionary, and explored ideas popularized in Keel’s classic books.

    In this title, whenever I grew weary of listening to the passages about the Mothman, there would be a pivot into the UFO topic and their potential origins. What I valued the most about this title was how the author worked strenuously to keep his feet on the ground scientifically when narrating such outlying subjects. This guy gives a view of UFOs that is definitely distinct and insightful. He could be right.

    This audiobook could best be described as a lab manual with simple experiments that prove reality is malleable, consciousness trumps matter, and you shape your life with your mind. Yes, you read that right. It says prove. The nine experiments, each of which can be conducted with absolutely no money and very little time expenditure, demonstrate that spiritual principles are as dependable as gravity, as consistent as Newton's laws of motion.

    When the topic of channeling comes up, a lot of people are rather skeptical of it and dismiss it as quickly as it arose. As this practice makes a resurgence in our society, it is essential that we have an understanding of what we are dealing with. The best way to deal with a challenge is to have at least a basic understanding of it. The author goes to great lengths to put as much detail into this book as he possibly can.
