    Living a Life of Inner Peace is a recording of one of Eckhart's most moving, transformative talks. The talk is relaxed and funny, and he conveys his message through stories and insightful observation. Eckhart makes us laugh at ourselves, while helping us break through habitual thinking to discover the eternal presence of the Now.

    Want an opportunity to look inside yourself and laugh? This speech will allow you to do that. I've listened to it many times, and it still leaves me laughing and feeling good.

  • The Language of Flowers: A Novel

    A mesmerizing, moving, and elegantly written debut novel, The Language of Flowers beautifully weaves past and present, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman whose gift for flowers helps her change the lives of others even as she struggles to overcome her own troubled past. The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it's been more useful in communicating grief, mistrust, and solitude.

    The plot was intriguing, the story line moved steadily and the character endearing enough where you wanted to read to the end.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Plot move faster. The idea that someone just shows up, dead, and draining water was hard to accept, believe, or enjoy.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Carolina De Robertis? Why or why not?

    I would read another book by her. She can write well and expand on setting and descriptions. Her vocabulary was excellent.


    What aspect of Carolina De Robertis’s performance would you have changed?

    Her voice and intonation was the same for all characters. I did not enjoy listening to her read it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The character, Perla, struggling to come to terms with her past—no problem. Her boyfriend, for his young age of 25, it was not easy to believe that he had the maturity to deal with her. She rehashed the same thing, Perla that is, so much that it was hard not to feel exasperated.

    Not a book I enjoyed much.
