    When coaches and teachers encourage people to “give it their all” and superstar athletes talk about being “in the zone”, they are really talking about the same thing. Being in a state of complete focused attention produces results, and the most successful people are those that can bring 100% of their concentration to the tasks that they wish to accomplish. These people know that with sustained and focused concentration, there is nothing you can’t do.

    Overall

    I listened to Chapter 2 of this book at night at bed time. I did feel changes and I did sleep better, had more focus and my dreams seemed more insightful. The other tracks were not at all helpful except for Chapter 1 which gave instructions.

    The PDF guide (which I suggest downloading - there is a link on the book page) is only marginally helpful. It refers to a Chapter 8 which does not exist on the book :-( Not sure if it is missing or just not in this audio book. The production of this whole package would be greatly enhanced by a little more attention to accurate and useful documentation.

    Stuart Milligan reads this thrilling adventure featuring the Ninth Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack. The Novrosk Peninsula: the Soviet naval base has been abandoned, the nuclear submarines are rusting and rotting. Cold, isolated, forgotten.Until the Russian Special Forces arrive - and discover that the Doctor and his companions are here too. But there is something else in Novrosk. Something that pre-dates even the stone circle on the cliff top. Something that is at last waking, hunting, killing....

    Story

    This story depicts Jack, the Doctor and Rose answering a distress beacon. The signal takes them to Russia and of course there is a mystery to solve. The story is fine and entertaining enough. Unfortunately the narrator is so off target and his accents so terrible that I nearly quit as soon as I started. The Doctor sounds more like Doolittle than Who. Rose's accent waivers all over the British Isles and Jack's is passable. The Russians in the story often sound more Mexican than Russian. I don't know if he was unfamiliar with the characters, was not given enough time to prep, or this is just not a good venue for Stuart Milligan. I have to say that without a doubt this is the worst voice work I have ever encountered in a Dr. Who audio book which is really to bad because Milligan has a very nice voice when not trying to do the characters. I tend to listen to Doctor Who books repeatedly while driving. I like a familiar story in the car. This one I got through twice, barely.

    Story

    I go this book in part to hear how Jamie joined the Tardis crew. For that reason I am glad I got it. I have to say that although the story is fairly decent, I found many of the characters extremely annoying not least of all the two companions travelling with the Doctor. I have a selection of Dr. Who audio books and this is by far my least favorite.

    The Wheel. A ring of ice and steel turning around a moon of Saturn, and home to a mining colony supplying a resource-hungry Earth. It's a bad place to grow up. The colony has been plagued by problems. Maybe it's just gremlins, just bad luck. But the equipment failures and thefts of resources have been increasing, and there have been stories among the children of mysterious creatures glimpsed aboard the Wheel. Many of the younger workers refuse to go down the warren-like mines anymore.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book a great deal. Some people seemed bothered by the meandering nature of this story. I enjoyed it all the more for it's breadth. The interludes did confuse me a bit at first, but once I realized they were tributaries off the main story to provide more backgrounds, I just went with it. I would say this book is like a relaxing float down a river. If you want to just get to the end by speed boat, this may not be the story for you. If you want to just follow a story where ever it leads, this is a good one.

    The narration of this story was brilliant. The voices were spot on and I was not the least bit distracted by them. In fact, I forgot at times it was not presented by the original cast.

    I listened to this book twice in a row and I am sure I will return to it on my next long drive. I found this much more satisfying than the audio books which are a blend of narration and tv show audio.
