    If he is surprised to find Eleanor Roosevelt waiting for him in his dingy little office, Toby Peters does not show it. Although this is his first time working for the First Lady of the United States, years of private investigations for the Hollywood elite have left him unfazed by a famous face. The First Lady comes straight to the point. Six months after Pearl Harbor, the only thing that keeps her husband from buckling under the pressures of the presidency is his dog, a sprightly black terrier named Fala.

    Life is the ultimate game of hide and seek... and the good news is that you're it! With the combination of playful irreverence and penetrating insight that made him a legend in Western philosophy, Alan Watts investigates the surprisingly liberating concept of "the universe as play" found at the heart of Hinduism, Zen, and other wisdom traditions.

    Doc S. Hodges says: "A life changing look at ancient philosophy"

    If you could sum up You're It! in three words, what would they be?

    Alan is HOT!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alan is all the characters.


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

    This is the best - authintic, spontanious and 100% Zen!


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

    It is a book to listen to a bit at a time.


    Any additional comments?

    I met Alan in 1967 or 68.
    This is even better than him in person for one talk.

    Here is the "Open Sesame of life"-the hidden formula of how to use your subconscious mind for achievement and success, by the popular author of The Secret of the Ages. In every hallowed fable, legend, and maxim known the world over-from the parables of Christ to the tales of Ali Baba to the riddles of the alchemists-there hides a secret. For those with eyes to see it, this secret can be life-changing.

    What would have made The Life Magnet better?

    If it followed the theme. It seemed like a series of old stories from
    his writing in the 20s.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Collier again?

    yes


    Which scene was your favorite?

    none


    What character would you cut from The Life Magnet?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    It did not follow the theme as in the title.

    Toby Peters is a private detective with sore feet, a bad back, and a tendency to bruise easily. He lives on a strict diet of hot dogs, tacos, shredded wheat, and disaster, and spends most of his time at the wrong end of a gun. Peters can’t get through the day without finding a corpse or losing his shoes or both, but he has a reputation for keeping his mouth shut. So when a nervous young billionaire finds a spy at his dinner party, he wants Peters on the job.

    This guy is a hot shot - a power player! I am from the south so I wish he would talk
    slower. Next time he is in Nashville - he can spend come time with us. We can help
    him slow down. Because he talks fast - you get a book and a half for the price of one
    book. Amazing book!

    A book that will change how you think and transform how you live.Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people – at work, at school, at home. It is wrong. As Daniel H. Pink explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today’s world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and the world.
