    A collection of Zen stories to amuse and illuminate. Includes all the stories from classic Zen literature: 101 Zen Stories, The Gateless Gate, The Ten Bulls and Centering. Includes the soundtrack The Mysterious Sound of Wind In the Bamboo - a 43 minute collection of Zen inspired Japanese music by The Matsu Take Ensemble.

    Mercedes says: "Beautiful teachings"
    "Should be Free"
    Overall

    Should be free really, audio quality wasnt there. The reason i like audible is most of the stuff is of good quality, reviews help you sift through the junk, unlike free sites where you not sure what to believe, you can find almost anything and downloading is not a hack. But they should offer more free stuff like these zen stories, I have downloaded loads of free talks that I enjoyed more than this AB.

    Story

    Created specifically to address the questions and needs of first-time students, here is Buddhism's vast spiritual legacy, presented by one of America's leading meditation teachers.

    Anna says: "Might be difficult for true beginners..."
    "A great first look into Buddism/ liked the speaker"
    Overall

    I was weary at first since some were complaining about the speaker, saying he was irritating and to be honest it took me a chapter to get into the way he speaks. Ended up really liking the speaker though his quotes from Don Juan Matus to Woody Alan made it easy to relate to the stories and philosophies.

    Would recommend.

    In this encore to his classic 1987 unauthorized biography of Steve Jobs (Steve Jobs: The Journey is the Reward), Jeffrey Young examines Jobs' remarkable resurgence, one of the most amazing business comeback stories in years.

    Blair says: "Steve Jobs History painted with a wide brush"
    "Great book, Great Listen"
    Overall

    This was my first audible download and one thing I have learnt from reviews is, just because its a great book doesn't mean its going to be a great Audio book.

    This was great all round, well written well read. I wasnt the hugest Jobs fan but I loved this AB. I Had finished it the day of download.

    I am also very impressed with Audible as a site and service, the ease and quality is worth the money. Customer reviews have also been very helpful in choosing AB's.
