    When his sister tricks him into taking her guru on a trip to their childhood home, Otto Ringling, a confirmed skeptic, is not amused. Six days on the road with an enigmatic holy man who answers every question with a riddle is not what he'd planned. But in an effort to westernize his passenger---and amuse himself---he decides to show the monk some "American fun" along the way.

    Mary McCarthy says: "a thoughtful and often hilarious journey"
    "Best book I have listened to in a long time."

    Would you listen to Breakfast with Buddha again? Why?

    Yes. It made me laugh and cry and think about life's priorities. There is much wisdom in this book to be learned.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Otto. I loved his brutal honesty and human stubborness,


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

    Aliveness. It was like watching a movie with my eyes closed.


    If you could take any character from Breakfast with Buddha out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    rinpoche. So I could ask him many questions.

    Why are some people so quick to recover from a setback while others wallow in despair? Why are some people so highly attuned to others that they seem psychic, while other people put both feet in it over and over again? Why are some people always up and others always down? In this hotly anticipated book, award-winning, pioneering neuroscientist Richard J. Davidson answers these questions by offering an entirely new model of our emotions - their origins, their power, and their malleability.

    Douglas says: "Looks Like I Will Be The First Reviewer..."
    "Great book."

    Where does The Emotional Life of Your Brain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is the best audiobook that I have listened to. I have a rare neurological eye disorder that makes it difficult for me to read much. My husband had "natural reader" on my computer and it was like having a robot read to you and I mean a robot who did not pronounce words correctly, etc. This new audible book is like being read to by a human.
