I must listen to it again. This book is packed with great tips and ideas. I'm certain I missed a bunch with just one listening. Another reviewer mentioned it was a "commercial?" He/She must not have listened past the first few minutes where the author offers jobs to folks who learn and understand these great concepts. I highly recommend this book to folks who want to make the best use of their precious time.

In her late 30's, Rosaria encountered something that turned her world upside down - the idea that Christianity, a religion she had regarded as problematic, might be right about who God was. That idea seemed to fly in the face of the people and causes that she most loved. What follows is a story of what she describes as a train wreck at the hand of the supernatural. These are her secret thoughts about those events, written as only a reflective English professor could.

Left unfinished at the time of his death, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin has endured as one of the most well-known and influential autobiographies ever written. From his early years in Boston and Philadelphia to the publication of his Poor Richard's Almanac to the American Revolution and beyond, Franklin's autobiography is a fascinating, personal exploration into the life of America's most interesting founding father.

Penney Peirce shows us how to let go of everything that gets in our way - the obstacles, clutter, and fears - to truly achieve greater authenticity, clarity of purpose, and feelings of belonging and joy. By transforming our opaque reality into a state of transparency, the dividing lines that fragment and isolate us melt away and all that's left is the true self - connecting us to everything and everyone. Transparency helps you learn that when you're transparent, there is great power in being seen for all of who you are.

Yuck no thanks. Lots of mindless drivel. I wonder where your "spirit guides" will lead you when the Messiah returns. Save your time and $. Now I need to figure out how to return this to audible.

The US tax code is a total write-off. Overstuffed with loopholes and special interest provisions, it works for no one - except tax lawyers, accountants, and corporations, that is - certainly not me and you. Not for the first time, we have to tear it up and start over. That happened in 1922, and again in 1954, and again in 1986. There's a pattern here; we reach this point every 32 years. Which means the next complete re-write of the tax code is due in 2018. Can we write a new tax code that is fair and simple? In fact, we can.
