    Based on interviews with today's cutting-edge scientists, investigative journalist Lynne McTaggart wrote The Field, a compelling presentation of the theory that there is a measurable "life force" in the universe. Now, in this original audio adaptation by the author, McTaggart takes listeners on a journey into this exciting arena of science, called the "Zero-Point Field", that could be the key to understanding "supernatural" forces, healing energy, and the nature of consciousness.

    "Good read"
    Overall

    Good read, the author has really worked hard and done some excellent research. However, after a couple of hours of listening it become a bit boring.

    Confessions of a Thug is an English novel written by Philip Meadows Taylor in 1839 based on the Thuggee cult in British India.This book is a tale of crime and retribution. Set in 1832 in India, the story lays bare the practices of the Thugs, or deceivers as they were called, who lived in boats and used to murder those passengers whom they were able to entice into their company in their voyages up and down the rivers.

    Richard says: "Grotesque at best"
    "A timeless thriller - Most exciting book"
    Overall

    I read this book when I was only 12 years old in URDU. Listening audio is always fascinating. The book written over 175 years ago still tastes like cognitive feast. Not in Victorian English it is easy to understand and all the terms are still very commonly used. Fantastic tale of crime, wickedness, royal courts of the era, bravery, suspense, romance distinguish and equitable details. It will take you in India 1830's. I love to see this in a Hollywood movie but movie (although The Deceiver was made) would not do justice with the book.
    The only regret I have is the ill pronunciation of Hindustani language by Sanjive. Although, Sanjive speaks English in fascinating accent but he has murdered Hindustani words, slangs and Muhammadan words such as Inshallah, Ameen. I had to remove one Star. I wish he would have gotten help with pronunciation. Overall a book every Indian, Pakistani, British, American and anyone interested in ancient India should read. Must listen....

    We have a lot to sort through on any given day. A whole lot to navigate over the course of a week or a month. All day long we are making choices. How do we know what to do?

    We have two options.

    We can trudge through on our own, doing our best to figure it all out. Or, we can walk with God - as in, learn to hear his voice. Really. He offers to speak to us and guide us. Every day. It is an incredible offer. To accept that offer is to enter into an adventure filled with joy and risk, transformation and breakthrough. And more clarity than we ever thought possible.

    Foer's unlikely journey from chronically forgetful science journalist to U.S. Memory Champion frames a revelatory exploration of the vast, hidden impact of memory on every aspect of our lives. On average, people squander forty days annually compensating for things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of memory training, he found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. Even more important, Foer found a vital truth we too often forget.

    Nothing against Christens but I would have not purchased it if it identified as a Christen book. To most of us fable from Bible does not interest. Good fables for church grandma.
