    In this New Thought classic, Atkinson looks at the law of attraction in the thought world. He points out the similarities between the law of gravitation and the mental law of attraction. He explains that thought vibrations are as real as those manifesting as light, heat, magnetism, and electricity. The difference is in the vibratory rate, which also explains the fact that thought vibrations cannot usually be perceived by our five senses.

    I always thought I could easily overcome a bad reading of good content but this reader barely seperates his sentences. There is no time to absorb any of the content before he is off to the next idea and you are left wondering how the heck he is even breathing. It's not suppose to be a race to the end - I'll probably buy the book.

    The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One’s prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight. The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck....

    Story

    I'm dedicated to get finishing the whole WOT series, but this one almost made me want to listen in double speed just to get through it. Also, the editing is terrible.... about 20 times the recording was repeated in about 30 second spans. Irritating to hear it happening AGAIN but necessary to mark this book as finished. Nice to find out what happened with Oliver and Matt since book 9 never said after book 8 left us with a cliffhanger.

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Absolutely loving this storyline. I will not give any spoilers but will just post enough to say my audible platinum 2 credit a month subscription is not enough to satisfy my need to know what happens next in the Wheel of Time series. I just finished book 4 and need book 5 now!

    Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads to supplement the canals, electric lighting in the streets and the homes of the wealthy, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.Kelsier, Vin, Elend, Sazed, Spook, and the rest are now part of history—or religion. Yet the old magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy continue to play a role in this reborn world....

    I'm pretty sure the best compliment an author would ever want is that the book is too short. Yes. I am in need of knowing what happens next. More please Mr. Sanderson and of course, the incredible narrator Michael Kramer. How do you do all those accents and voices anyway? Wow!

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    Half human and half Wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the Wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful---and passionate---of the Elder Races.

    Story

    I've been an audible addict for years, but have only recently given fiction a try when I started out with the Iron Druid Chronicles and was hooked. I was looking for another series and came upon this one. I listened to this book expecting to devour the remaining books in the series, but I don't think I'll order the others. I think it may be Luke Daniels, the narrator for the Iron Druid Chronicle series that I am comparing this to and why I am not so pleased with the performance of this book. Every male character came off speaking as bored and unemotional as to what they were saying. Pia came off so often as a immature, and defensive.... irritatingly so, even though in many areas I felt that the author may have not intended it to be so. I thought if I were reading it myself or if the narrator had just not tried to perform each male character in such a way, I might like it more. There were also so many 'big guy' comments that I started rolling my eyes when hearing them. As far as the sex goes, I understood it, but thought that throwing in a quick non tender sex scene in the last 3 minutes of the book was over the top. Just my opinion and I am about go and seek out some reviews of the Iron Druid Chronicles in hopes that I can see what other books reviewers there liked. Maybe I ruined myself for other fiction series since it was just that good???
