    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I find it perfect to ensure words and pronunciation retention. I like it, works for me. I used it in the car all the time. I wish they would have a printed manual as well. It would be ideal.
    It repeats the words you've learned previously, adding just the right amount of new words so you don't get frustrated, and then it mixes and matches old and new words to ensure retention. Clear pronunciation which helps me reproduce the sound and correct my intonation.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Chinese (Man) Phase 1, Units 1-30?

    When I started knowing the answers to the questions and having the right intonation.


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    Clear pronunciation


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

    Definitely not since you need some time to retain, I would replay the previous chapter or at times chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the method just wish they had a manual with both standard and simplified characters. Would be the perfect companion.

    What was most disappointing about David Morehouse’s story?

    While I don't doubt he might have some "talent" the story seems to lack sincerity. My opinion of course. I don't doubt there are people who have this type of skills, I personally know some, so what I doubt is his story, doesn't feel truthful. Thin story, thin explanations, and his relationship with the angel is too sketchy to be truthful. Quote from the book - his dad tells him "I gave you my angel".... no comments.


    Have you listened to any of David Morehouse’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Psychic Warrior?

    I would've challenged his truth and if he would've still state that the story is right, I would've guided him to add more details. He doesn't give any reasons to rational and spiritual people to believe him.

  • Autobiography of a Yogi

    Story
    (422)

    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.

    D says: "Spiritually Uplifting -- and entertaining!"
    "excellent reader, inspiring book"

    Where does Autobiography of a Yogi rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the books which made a difference in my life


    What did you like best about this story?

    exudes sincerity and spiritual messages


    What about Ben Kingsley’s performance did you like?

    His voice gives life to the book, sometimes you feel as if Yogananda himself talks trough Sir Ben Kingsley.


    Any additional comments?

    Underneath the "simple" story there are many interesting lessons.
