His small act of kindness propels him into a world he never dreamed existed. There are people who fall through the cracks, and Richard has become one of them.

More than forty years ago, Mario Puzo wrote his iconic portrait of the Mafia underworld as told through the fictional first family of American crime, the Corleones. The leader, Vito Corleone, is the Godfather. He is a benevolent despot who stops at nothing to gain and hold power. His command post is a fortress on Long Island from which he presides over a vast underground empire that includes rackets, gambling, bookmaking, and unions. His influence runs through all levels of American society, from the cop on the beat to the nation''s mighty. Mario Puzo, a master storyteller, introduces us to unforgettable characters, and the elements of this world explode to life in this violent and impassioned chronicle.

Each hypnosis is approximately 15 to 20 minutes and includes extended deep relaxation music. You can take back your life and choose how to respond to stressful situations. By responding to stress instead of reacting to it, you can control your emotions instead of letting your emotions control you.

too much talking about what are the targets and what your mind can do but with very little actual guidance on those. Nice soothing music after the talking but really not much of meditation instructions there. i do not recommend to buy.
