    Quantum physics is an astounding (and mind-boggling) field of science, but can you actually use it to change your life? Absolutely yes, says Dr. Quantum. On A User's Guide to Your Universe, Dr. Quantum, who goes by day as mild-mannered physicist Dr. Fred Alan Wolf, teaches that anyone can understand quantum physics. What's more, it is the most useful, immediate, and relevant kind of science you can learn to profoundly affect your day-to-day life.

    I'm really enjoying this audiobook. As an engineer i already understand technical concepts, and found this book very easy to listen to. The narrator is very animated and dramatic (which may or not appeal to you) and for me was much more exciting and engaging than a monotone university lecturer.

    The other great audiobook you should consider getting is Entanglement if you want more science and detail.

    Tomorrow's God says, point blank, that humanity will soon recreate its experience of God in such a way that our experience of one another will be healed at last. You may agree or disagree with the contents of this audiobook, but you will never forget it.

    "Assertions without evidence"
    Overall

    For those familiar with spiral dynamics - this is a level 6 presented book with a light touch of level 4 content. This made it a painfully bad book for me as i was expecting content about the Christian God or the evolution of spirituality in today's society. But it's about the spiritual "god" which the author equates AS the universe (god = the universe = life). This is not the Christian or Jewish world view.

    For a moment i try to suspend judgment in hopes of learning something, but the author mixes in a smatter of science which isn't true. I am an engineer with qualifications in psychology, i also understand quantum physics and chaos theory. The assertions the author makes between these topics and "god" are not right and the author doesn't even attempt to explain how he comes to his conclusions. This frustrated me and i can't recommend this book to those looking to to get a better understanding of spirituality of god or God.

    This proactive, practical guide is unlike any self-help book you've ever listened to. It's not about simple motivation or inspiration; that stuff only matters if you have a plan. Me, Inc. is designed to help you develop that plan and then execute it to perfection. It's not a generic, one-size-fits-all program, but rather a personalized system for improving your life and filling it with purpose, meaning, and contentment.

    morton says: "Great guide for getting where you want to be"
    "poorly narrated and impractical"
    Overall

    They say words only form 7% or so of our communication, the rest is 38% tonality and 55% body language. So the quality of narration is critical for any audiobook. Unfortunately the narration on this audio book is horrible with a matter-of-fact tonality - which for me took away from the content of the book.

    The audiobook seems to just mention a checklist of things to do but not HOW to do much of what is recommended. I found this frustrating because I'm a very practical down to earth person who wants to implement new strategies immediately, not wander with my head in the cloud and be lectured at from a stage about the things i should do.

    The basis of the book is to run your life as if you were running a business. So if you are business minded already then this book will provoke interesting thoughts you will agree with. If you are not business minded then you may frequently wander what they are talking about.

    I felt that the core ideas were good, but outdated, compared to some of the advanced ways of improving your life (e.g. Google "NLP").

    If you must buy this then perhaps reading the physical book would be more beneficial. Also look at books from John C. Maxwell and Malcolm Gladwell.

    Three seconds is all that stands between those who settle for "whatever" and those who insist on "whatever it takes". Award-winning author and psychologist Dr. Les Parrott reveals six common impulses that sabotage greatness in our lives. We can unleash our full potential and excellence when we learn how to give our first impulses a second thought.

    Overall

    Lots of content filled with anecdotal stories. Would have been good if it also included referenced evidence and statistics.
    Excellent narrator that engages with the content.

    The chapters are:
    1. The power of thinking twice
    2. It takes 3 sec to embrace a good challenge
    3. It takes 3 sec to fuel your passion
    4. It takes 3 sec to own your piece of the pie
    5. It takes 3 sec to walk the extra mile
    6. It takes 3 sec to quit stewing and start doing
    Conclusion - how to make your second impulse second nature

  • Strategic Intuition: The Creative Spark in Human Achievement

    How "Aha!" really happens....When do you get your best ideas? You probably answer "At night" or "In the shower" or "Stuck in traffic". You get a flash of insight. Things come together in your mind. You connect the dots. You say to yourself, "Aha! I see what to do." Brain science now reveals how these flashes of insight happen. It's a special form of intuition. We call it strategic intuition, because it gives you an idea for action - a strategy. This new book by William Duggan is the first full treatment of strategic intuition.

    Ricardo says: "It makes perfect sense, great insights"
    "Intuition and Bill Gates"
    Overall

    I'm really enjoying this audiobook. It offers a new insight and perspective in to "intuition".
    The narrator is also fairly good but comes across as an experienced news reader and you can tell they don't understand the actual content because his "gentle" style has the same pattern that doesn't vary much over the 7 hours.
    I agree with the other comment that there is too much focus on Bill Gates and Intel - something that might not appeal to non-geeks.

    The core of your being, heart, mind, and body, holds within it a consciousness capable of realizing a world without limitations; a life unfettered by any fear, empowered by a Living Light, and renewed every day by timeless Love.

    glamazon says: "Disappointing"
    "Rambling mad man"
    Overall

    There are some great ideas and stories in this audio.

    However, these are let down by the presenter's painful preaching style that i found annoying. Often you want him to get to the point without his own emotions getting so involved.

    It is punctuated with some amusing comments that makes it more bearable. As they say there is a fine line between genius and insanity. I feel perhaps the text version of the book would be a better option.
