    Everyone knows how to lose weight: eat less, move more. But so many dieters who know what to do still don't do what they know. Why not? Because they don't understand the brain-body dynamics of weight loss. Now, cutting-edge research has revealed that millions of dieters following typical weight loss programs are actually programming themselves to get fatter.

    Story

    Martha Beck is an inspiring Life Coach and a much needed resource in the world of weight loss struggles. Stop setting yourself up for failure - adopting unnatural and unrealistic regimens in order to lose the pounds does not accomplish your real goal. You need to change from the inside out, or there is little chance the change will last your lifetime. Patiently approaching the exercises in this book is laying the ground work for lifelong health. Kudos to an author and motivator who gets it!

  • Autobiography of a Yogi

    When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

    Peter A. says: "One of the finest books on Spirituality ever"
    "Ben Kingsley brings the text to life."

    Story

    I had read the Autobiography many years earlier, but was interested in re-visiting Yogananda's consummate piece. I decided to use a credit so that I could listen to the title while commuting. A better use of a credit I have not made. Ben Kingsley (yes, I knew he'd be good) took this story to a entirely different level. The dialog between different characters, the authenticity of expression, the pacing... his performance is awe-inspiring. If you are interested in an intriguing story of a notable Indian saint, this will not disappoint.

    To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

    Story

    If you are new to Tolle's teachings, I would highly recommend starting with this recording. It lays a lot of foundation for his many other offerings, here on Audible. In this book, he distills the underlying message of the Buddha, as well as Jesus and other important spiritual messengers, into an accessible and current plan of action for the rest of us. Followed with his "A New Earth," this is enough to really affect transformation of consciousness in individuals ready to evolve... so worth the time and the "credit!"

    Spoken simply, with his hallmark warmth, humor, and compassion, here is Eckhart's full presentation of a beautiful way to live.

    Story

    This was the second title I've listened to (from Tolle) and it was the perfect follow up to "A New Earth." I enjoyed the live recording, got a few good laughs from the author's sense of humor, and experienced many "Aha!" moments in which, what I had previously heard in "A New Earth," suddenly clicked on a more personal level.
    I find Tolle to be a very gifted extemporaneous speaker. While his book reading, for me, was mesmerizing and life changing, his live performance and teaching method left me just as spellbound. If you're a Tolle fan, this title will not disappoint!
