The tone of the narration remains throughout that which would be used for a Halloween ghost story. If you can bear it and focus on Coehlo's story, then you'll have listened to a good book with an inspiring message.

4 stars for performance because I think they could've done a better job splicing the recordings so it didn't cut off in a couple spots in the end. Don't let that stop you from purchasing this book, though, because the message is excellent and makes a lot of sense.

  • The Blank Slate

  • The Modern Denial of Human Nature

In The Blank Slate, Steven Pinker, one of the world's leading experts on language and the mind, explores the idea of human nature and its moral, emotional, and political colorings. With characteristic wit, lucidity, and insight, Pinker argues that the dogma that the mind has no innate traits, denies our common humanity and our individual preferences, replaces objective analyses of social problems with feel-good slogans, and distorts our understanding of politics, violence, parenting, and the arts.

This book is OK. A little hard to follow for the non-scholar. Worth listening to the whole way through, though.

Everybody has wondered what lies beyond this life, but few have investigated this with as much sensitivity and rigor as Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. This first-ever recording of Dr. Kübler-Ross on audio - the pioneer who defined the five steps of grief - tells us what she discovered about the age-old question: Is there life after death?

This book is very short; wish it were longer. But it is packed full of insight and the stories were touching and the overall message deep.
