    For thousands of years, the yogic technology of kundalini was veiled in secrecy and passed only from master to chosen disciple. Today this sacred practice, known for it's ability to promote health, creativity and spiritual awareness, is alive and flourishing in yoga studios nationwide. Now Harijiwan Khalsa offers Kundalini Meditation, an audio program to help anyone tap into the power of this ancient tradition.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Buy A Chakra Meditation by Glenn Harrold. He has a long version 45 minutes and a shorter 25 minute version. The audio is very good, great sound, and speaks at a tone that is very clear.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Harijiwan Khalsa again?

    No Way.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His voice is very jarring, this does not work when you are trying to meditate.

    Also instead of spending some money on special effects on this audio, such as an Echo he says... "now, now, now, now..." like faking a echo sound. IT IS hilarious! But again laughing at this audio is not helping for meditation either.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, Jon's narration is robotic. If you want to sleep then listen to this book. Frankly it was so much so I could gained very little from this book. When I was able to keep my attention on the robotic voice I did have some insight. I think the book is overall good, but really get another person to read it and re-publish the audio book.


    What could Jon Kabat-Zinn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have another person narrate the book. Jon reads with no emotion, no emphasis any word or idea. I have tried to listen to this book many times. The last time was a flight and I fell into a deep sleep.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Speaks very mono-tone.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not purchase any audible book that Jon narrates.

  • Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life with the Heart of a Buddha

    "Believing that something is wrong with us is a deep and tenacious suffering," says Tara Brach at the start of this illuminating book. This suffering emerges in crippling self-judgments and conflicts in our relationships, in addictions and perfectionism, in loneliness and overwork - all the forces that keep our lives constricted and unfulfilled. Radical Acceptance offers a path to freedom, including the day-to-day practical guidance developed over Dr. Brach's 20 years of work with therapy clients and Buddhist students.

    Where does Radical Acceptance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have read many books on meditation. I have been a fan of Tolle for a very long time, but I have to say this book by Brach is far more reaching and more practical than any book I have read by Tolle. Tolle I have seemed to listen to countless times, but found Radical Acceptance to provide clearer direction on what action to take day by day. She gives very clear examples of how to practice mindfulness, meditation, and work through some emotional issues.


    What does Cassandra Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her reading is wonderful, to the point, read with emotion. She reads this book as if she was the author. Excellent!

    The people of Earth are preparing for war - a war that could potentially destroy the planet. Explorers are sent to Mars to find a new place for humans to colonize. Bradbury's Mars is a place of hope, dreams, and metaphor, where a fine dust settles on the great empty cities of a silently destroyed civilization. It is here the invaders have come to despoil and commercialize, to grow and to learn - first a trickle, then a torrent, rushing from a world with no future toward a promise of tomorrow. The Earthman conquers Mars... and then is conquered by it.

    Would you try another book from Ray Bradbury and/or The Colonial Radio Players?

    My nephew told me he enjoyed the written book. So I thought I would try it for the ride to work. I like Sci-Fi but have to say this book is so badly written with terrible characters that it is so bad that it should be a -1 on the rating scale. I should have returned it, just TERRIBLE!


    What didn’t you like about The Colonial Radio Players’s performance?

    I have to say I like the play-like narration but the story is so bad I could not finish it.


    What character would you cut from The Martian Chronicles: A Radio Dramatization?

    Everyone!

    Out of nowhere, like a fresh breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice on what to believe, comes Byron Katie and what she calls "The Work". In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed. Then one morning, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her, and now, in Loving What Is, you can discover the same freedom through The Work.

    It seems so interesting that such a simple idea (4 questions) could be so powerful. I really enjoyed the book and thought the audio program would be nice to have for the drive to work. I thought the audio program was going to be the author reading the book, but it was wonderful that it was people speaking live as Katie takes them through the 4 questions. Don't let this simple idea (4 questions) stop you from taking in this material...."Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." — Albert Einstein

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

    What did you like best about this story?

    The actionable ideas, the honesty of traders that had huge losses, and huge wins, and what they learned.


    Any additional comments?

    It was tough to determine at times (chapter 1 & 2) if he was asking the question or answering. Then in all the other chapters he changed is tone when asking questions and answering so it was more enjoyable.

    First published in 1923, this lightly fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest market speculators ever, is widely regarded as one of best investment books of all time. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the resource that generations of investors have turned to when they needed deeper insight into their own investing habits and those of others. Listen to this work, featuring narrator Rick Rohan, and you'll soon discover your portfolio growing in new and unexpected ways!

    Would you listen to Reminiscences of a Stock Operator again? Why?

    Yes. I listened to it twice and read the book twice. If you have traded (not investing but trading) you will gain many insights from this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Livermore and the owners of the bucket shops. The bucket shop owners were a bunch of scammers, modern day Bear Sterns.


    What does Rick Rohan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rohan is by far the BEST narrator I have heard. He puts so much feeling into the reading of the book, he made is so much more “real.”


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No way, it is 16 hours.

    This is not only an audio book, but an investment expense!

He managed the number-one Short Bias Hedge Fund from 2003 to 2006, starred in the television documentary Wall Street Warriors, and appeared regularly on CNBC - all before the age of 26.
