Joseph Jaworski, the son of famed Watergate special prosecutor Leon Jaworski, uses his own experiences and the latest studies to create a new concept of leadership. Instead of focusing on numbers, reports, and other inanimate objects, Jaworski encourages leaders and managers to look at the world primarily through relationships. Allowing life to flow through us, instead of despite us, he explains, will break organizations free from self-imposed or institutional limits, fostering an atmosphere of learning and top performance.

If you're corporate suit looking for new ideas for the boardroom, download this one. I'm sure you'll love it. If you're a lover of Jung and all things philosophical/metaphysical, don't bother. God, I so don't care about the implementation of global strategies for Shell oil company . . .

How is Animals in Translation different from every other animal book ever published? Animals in Translation is like no other animal book because of Temple Grandin. As an animal scientist and a person with autism, her professional training and personal history have created a perspective like no other thinker in the field, and this is her exciting, groundbreaking view of the intersection of autism and animal.

Why Academia? Why do you persist in these old ways of thinking? Wake up and learn about quantum mechanics!

A dog always goes to the door to wait for his owner 10-15 minutes before the owner arrives, even if the arrival time is random. The author wants us to believe that this is just the dog's extraordinary hearing?!?

A crow distinguishes between the times a homeowner goes inside with the intent to get his gun vs. the times when he leaves with no such intent-flying away only when the man is about to shoot him. And we are to believe that the crow is visually processing subtle differences in the man's behavior?

These guys (and girls) are starting to sound like the new flat-earth society.

It's an interesting book nonetheless.

A book on Chakras

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-02-05

Fantastic explanation of the Chakra System. I???m fascinated by the concept of Chakras and energy fields. I searched for an audio book on ???Chakras??? several months ago but came up with nothing. The description of this book doesn???t use the word ???Chakra???, but that???s exactly what it???s about. It???s a very detailed analysis of this energy system (spending about 45 minutes on each one). If you like this book, I would also recommend the hardcover book, ???Infinite Mind: Science of Human Vibrations of Consciousness??? by Valerie V. Hunt. Hopefully this review will now be included in the search criteria for this book so that others looking for info on this subject can find it.

  • The Secrets of the Power of Intention

In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores intention as an all-pervading force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

Cultivate Synchronicity

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 10-22-04

Every bad review I see on this book/audiobook revolves around the author's conception of God. Christians (and let me emphasize here that I consider myself to be one) are resistant to any characterization of God that falls outside that of an omniscient personality doling out punishment and rewards according to his own prerogative. The word "God" does not and cannot describe the whole reality of God. There is more to you than your name. So it is with God. There are more things in Heaven and Earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy. Please, discover the truth yourself. Doubt before you believe. Read the Bible, and then read Bohm's Implicate order. Truth is that which is consistent with reality, no matter how strange and unconventional that reality might seem. Know what is real, investigate, find the truth.
