Thoughts Are Things: The Owner's Manual for the Human Condition | [Prentice Mulford]

Thoughts Are Things: The Owner's Manual for the Human Condition

Prentice Mulford was a New Age thinker long before the term was coined. In the 1880s he foresaw the Internet, world-wide air travel and many other future realities. In this work we have taken many of the concepts from his various books and put them into one book. His unique and direct style allows for our exploration of the most perplexing aspects of what it means to be a spiritual entity living with and through a material body. This is the owners manual for the human condition.

    Story
    "Very Insightful and Revolutionary...for the 1800s"
    What disappointed you about Thoughts Are Things?

    Too religious and capitalistic. He used many examples from the Bible to prove his ideas. Sorry folks, but the Bible is a fictional book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    something light


    Any additional comments?

    The concept is good, but clearly the mindset is very old fashioned.

    "Narration is terrible!"
    Would you try another book from Prentice Mulford and/or Al James?

    Maybe. The narration was so bad that I could not even finish the book, maybe the content is worth reading in the book.

    "Wow, pretty bad."
    Would you try another book from Prentice Mulford and/or Al James?

    No.


    What was most disappointing about Prentice Mulford’s story?

    He lost me at the part where he talked about using drugs (hashish and opium) to attain greater spiritual awareness and to commune with... dead people? While we sleep? Really?

    Also, recalling during the intro, where it was stated that Mulford did not learn all of what he wrote about from accomplished masters, or from rigorous research. He got it "the old fashioned way: he _discerned_ it." In other words, he made it up.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There were a few random quotable gems.

    "Narrator Terrible"
    What would have made Thoughts Are Things better?

    A narrator with a better voice. Very difficult listening to the way in which he speaks.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Horrible voice.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Can't really say--couldn't get past the voice.

    "Thoughts Are Things"
    What would have made Thoughts Are Things better?

    It is very esoteric and appears to be the opinion of one man. If the information is offered as guidelines to live by, the information needs to be more generalized and have examples.


    What could Prentice Mulford have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He could subtitle it, "One man's opinion of the escoteric" so that a prospective reader iknows what theya re buying.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Al James?

    He was fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nvever finished it. I would not recommend to anyone and would not listen to again.

    Story
    "Hated it"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It was like listening to a unicorn talk about fantasy land.


    What character would you cut from Thoughts Are Things?

    I didnt like the premise. It was very hard to grasp the concepts and ideas.
