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

    I would recommend this audiobook to a friend because it is very informative and has simple and effective advise on being mindful.


    What other book might you compare The Present Moment to and why?

    I would compare "Fear" by Thich Nhat Hanh to this book. It has a similar theme regarding mindfulness.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favourite scene was Thich Nhat Hanh describing his return to his home after a walk in the woods only to find the storm had blown things all over and it was a mess and cold and dark. He used this as an analogy regarding a person returning to himself. Going home.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Present Moment?

    The insight that there is no separate self. We are all inter-being.

    What a gift!

    Learn how complete awareness can open the door to lasting transformation in work, worship, love, and all other areas of your life. Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's acclaimed theory of mindfulness explores ways to shine the light of awareness into our intimate relationships. He examines Buddhism's four basic qualities of authentic love: kindness, compassion, joy, and freedom.

    What made the experience of listening to Teachings on Love the most enjoyable?

    The stories that are told are very inspirational.


    What other book might you compare Teachings on Love to and why?

    I would compare it to "The Present Moment" by Thich Nhat Hanh. The content is different and yet the message of love and compassion is very similar.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The story of David and Angelina was my favourite!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, the moment when Thich Nhat Hanh says that his driver is his "Angelina". And when he describes having a wall of "Angelina's". And it inspired me so much to think of all the "Angelina's" in my life and to honour them.


    Any additional comments?

    Love and compassion radiates throughout this recording.

  • The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 27 mins)

    Story
    (1757)

    Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real-estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? Michael Lewis turns the inquiry on its head to create a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his number-one best-selling Liar’s Poker.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Big Short the most enjoyable?

    I was able to learn about a subject I didn't have a lot of time to sit and read about. This allowed me to do two things at once. For me it's a whole new world of opportunity to continue learning. I have lots of time while I'm driving or doing chores etc. Fantastic!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was current and hard hitting.


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

    Oh he really brings the characters to life.


    If you could give The Big Short a new subtitle, what would it be?

    The ugly truth


    Any additional comments?

    Just loved the book and the ability to use Audible to listen to it because I may not have had the opportunity if not.
