Is it possible to be grounded AND have a rich interior life? Is it possible to get through the day with poise when everything hits the fan? Is it possible to have a spiritual life and not be a wing-nut? For Jen Weigel, the answer to all three questions is a resounding YES. This is an honest, amusing teaching memoir rooted in Weigel's everyday experience as a mother, television personality, and performance artist. Weigel provides 13 common-sense rules for developing a sane and satisfying interior life.

After the first thirty minutes, I just couldn't take the narrator any more. The narrator sounds like she is reading to her kindergarten audience. I have enjoyed Jennifer Weigel's work, so I am going to give this book another try before considering returning it.

When Lucie Amundsen had a rare night out with her husband, she never imagined what he'd tell her over dinner - that his dream was to quit his office job (with benefits!) and start a commercial-scale pasture-raised egg farm. His entire agricultural experience consisted of raising five backyard hens, none of whom had yet laid a single egg. To create this pastured poultry ranch, the couple scrambles to acquire nearly 2,000 chickens - all named Lola.

I couldn't take it any longer. I made it about a third of the way through and was so distracted by the unnatural sound of the narrator I couldn't hear the story. Unfortunately, the story didn't seem interesting enough to suffer the narration. I had to return this one to Audible.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This sounds like it may be a very interesting book. However, is probably better purchased as a book and not audio. Many references to charts and lists make it way to difficult to follow as a recording.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No

Do you think Your Psychic Pathway needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Apparently Nightingale-Conant does. They are very clear with their hard driving sales pitch...go to our website, now! Not later, NOW! Buy now, buy now! VERY off putting!

Vision to Reality will teach you how to increase your efficiency and effectiveness, overcome challenges, increase your productivity, live with passion and purpose, and turn your wildest visions into your true reality.

Would you try another book from Gregory Berns and/or LJ Ganser?

Not likely.

Would you ever listen to anything by Gregory Berns again?

Sure

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

yes

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

This book totally lacked substance. Misleading in title and description. The majority of the weak story was about preparing for and testing. After hours of listening it sounded as if the story was finally getting to the topic expected and there was less than 20 minutes left of the book. Very disappointing.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Information of substance. I thought I was buying a book but instead purchased what should have been a list in a magazine article.

Would you ever listen to anything by Daniel Rosenstein again?

I doubt it. I feel taken.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 50 Ways To Make Money On Pinterest?

There was very little to start with. Nothing could be cut.

Any additional comments?

Not all magazine articles or ebooks are suitable for sale on Audible and this is one.
