    In The Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the The Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

    This book is AMAZING. I began my spiritual quest after hearing about The Secret. I watched the movie and read the book. It seemed easy and attainable but I know that the Secret was not settling - I had to keep digging for knowledge.

    "Knowledge alone is not enough. Only with understanding can real application begin. And that will help bring you to the place you want to be."

    That quote applies directly to this book. The Four Agreements are straight forward and easily understood. Open your hearts and listen to Peter Coyote bring don Miguel's book to life! Enjoy and Good Luck on your quest for Knowledge and Understanding! Be blessed!

    What really happened in the Marabar caves? Adela Quested arrives in Chandrapore, India, prepared to marry a British magistrate who exemplifies the narrow-minded, anti-Indian projudices of the imperial bureaucracy. But she soon meets the charming and mercurial Dr. Aziz, who offers to show her the "real" India. An expedition to the famed Marabar caves ends in explosive accusations and a schism that foreshadows the eventual end of British rule in India.

    "Good story - phenomenal narrator!"
    Overall

    This book is recommended professional reading in the US Navy. I feared it might have been a boring read, so I decided to try the audio version. It was by no means boring! I am very impressed by the complexity of the story and the characters which are portrayed in this very robust book. This story remains as relevant today as it did in the author's lifetime.

    The best part of this audiobook is the Narrator, Sam Dastor! His voices were amazing, his dialog as British men and women, and Indian men and women was superb.

    I was thoroughly engrossed in the story and I attribute 75% of that to Mr. Dastor's narration! I highly recommend this book! Thanks!

    These 13 guided meditations, based on the mystical poetry of Paramhansa Yogananda, are ideal for evoking deep spiritual awareness. Set to a background of well-known and inspiring classical music, Metaphysical Meditations draws listeners inward to the calm, joyful, expansive states of awareness that accompany deep meditation.

    I am not impressed with the Author/Narrators "mystical" meditation. The metaphysical title was not what I thought it would offer. I prefer Deepak Chopra's meditations. If you are a novice to meditation - start with Deepak Chopra's guided meditations.
