I am a big fan of actual Brainwave Tech and the way it works, but really shaking your head is not a "brainwave". I felt really bad for buying this book. The Person who read for us is fine and if you want to believe in this theory go for it. I just wish they did not call it "Brainwave"... that is not what this book is about. I am shaking my head in the "No" pattern.

Meditation and hypnosis are two psychological processes that have fascinated scientists, healers, and the general public for centuries. This introduction to both subjects traces, first, the progression of ideas, concepts, and theories of hypnotism and considers the many claims for hypnosis and how these have withstood scientific scrutiny. It also discusses the use of meditation for healing, relaxation, and self-awareness. Hypnosis and meditation are compared, and their implications for future research and understanding are explored.

I learned so much with this book yet I was not bored at all. I have to give so much credit to this book for helping me understand how all this works and giving me even more respect to the field than I had before. Great listen.

In the summer of 1974, a 14-year-old girl in Dolton, Illinois, had a dream - a dream to become an actress. But it was a long way from the South Side of Chicago to Hollywood, and it didn’t help that she’d recently dropped out of the school play, The Ugly Duckling, or that the Hollywood casting directors she wrote to replied that "professional training was a requirement". But the funny thing is, it all came true....

I really connected with this book. Jane is a real person and really lays herself out there for the listener. I am a big fan of books read by their authors. What a great lifespan and so many smaller stories within the life of Jane Lynch. You will love it.

We're in "wild west" times for business. Thanks to social media and new technologies, customer-brand relationships are suddenly wide open and up for grabs. Big players are getting taken down, while upstarts are starting up, gunning for market share, and outmaneuvering the Goliaths. So, just when a rethink might seem in order, why do so many act like it's 1982 all over again? Why do they believe product pushing still works?

I have been building websites for years and never got so much information about marketing and how a small business would think until I got this book. There was not a bit of information that I was not able to use. I am so much better prepared to work with small clients and market myself that I would have ever dreamed.

Author James Hollis' eloquent reading provides the listener with an accessible and yet profound understanding of a universal condition - or what is commonly referred to as the mid-life crisis. The book shows how we may travel this Middle Passage consciously, thereby rendering our lives more meaningful and the second half of life immeasurably richer.

This book was a waste of time, he basically turned some "ok" sort of useful information into fluff with the use of a thesaurus. I did not get anything out of this. I hope someone at least gains a better vocabulary from listening to this.

Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.
