Ram Dass is an excellent raconteur and this collection of speeches made over several years drives home a few key points about how to approach life. Although he sometimes does not "conclude" as we would want him to and perhaps meanders somewhat, the later parts of this are absolutely crystal clear. Enjoyable and enlightening.
I first read Michael Caine's biography What's It All About? which tracks Caine's upbringing from the working class to Hollywood. That was quite a while ago, and I was glad to update myself with his spoken version. And who better to tell Michael Caine's story than Michael Caine? It's a long story but he's had an amazingly long career - it's personal enough and a testament to his determination to make it in spite of the odds. Mostly enjoyable. You can't fault the non-events that are inevitable in an autobiography like this....PS I'm going to miss Sir Michael Caine when he's gone. They don't make stars like him anymore.
There is only one leading man here.
I can understand the negative reviews of this audiobook / lecture. Caroline Myss does meander here and there and I lose her train of thought now and then. It's apparent that Caroline knows what she wants to say but something is left out. I think this could have been edited a bit for repetition. Caroline pulls no punches in this one - it's hard and almost confrontational, underscoring the urgency of her message. She starts strong - meanders - and ends strong. This is the voice of someone who is concerned about the state of humankind and it shows. I felt this in my gut.
It's all about the truth and being true to ourselves...hover over me God.
Of course. But would be good to figure out how to differentiate one book from another! There are similar themes.
Caroline is one of the most passionate speakers there is.
Listen and learn!
Caroline Myss is a Master of dissecting who we are and addressing our calling in life. The Language of Archteypes fills in the missing pieces. Caroline's straight talking, down-to-earth way of embracing and expanding on a complex subject is at once powerful, and focussing.
Haven't heard anything like it.
Self Esteem is a complex yet essential subject. Caroline Myss brings a lot of insights into the subject, but being a speech - the listener will have to focus on her points and insights.
Caroline Myss has a lot to offer. She is one of the most profound and unique minds in the field of self-help, self-realisation and healing today.
We can't elevate our self-esteem by knocking others. Plus simple meditations about dealing with negative comments.
Caroline Myss is Caroline Myss. She walks and talks the talk. It's a very personal subject for her. However, that said, sometimes we need to review details as there are layers to the information she is presenting.
Quite a few things.
This is perhaps the most relevant and up to date book I've heard from Deepak Chopra. Highly recommended. Yes - you may have to get used to his accent if you're American. I'm Asian and have no problems with his words. What he has to say is excellent.
Robin Sharma gives good advice and he's down to earth and warm. So in short, this is a good pep talk for all leaders - and would be leaders. Some of us don't have a choice, but Robin gives some simple words to live by in an emphatic way.
So to sum up: He's Passionate, It's Free, What are You Waiting for? Download!
Roger Moore's abridged biography is, like his Bond films, easy going. Moore infuses the read with natural passion, in his exquisite voice which his fans will no doubt enjoy. Note that this is more memoir lite than in depth stuff - probably because it's abridged. Moore also remains the impeccable Gentleman, which perhaps explains why he isn't the gossiping type. He admits dissing Grace Jones in Octopussy - in a rare flash of anger. While this is not a salacious read, it is certainly for those who grew up on Roger Moore as Bond or the Saint. 5 stars for the enjoyable read. 3.5 stars for the story. And 4 overall!
Anthony Robbins is always relevant and one of the best motivational gurus around. HOWEVER - poor music mars this production - very dated keyboards make this sound bad. Get past that and try to focus on Anthony's words. But he really should re-record it. The words are timeless, the music isn't!
I enjoy unabridged books and Debbie Ford is spot on in her observations. Recommended.
