brutally honest, non pc, enlightening and uplifting in a surprising kind of way (for me). I appreciated him from the Wendy Williams days, then fell into the idea that he was a grouchy ignorant dude. A friend recommended in give this a chance. I also happened to decide to read it at a time i really needed some of the info he delivers, though i didn't read it looking for that. Well done Charlamagne. Mind changed.

In Pushback, top leadership consultant Selena Rezvani argues that self-advocacy is critical to success. Yet women initiate negotiations four times less often than men, resulting in getting less of what they want - promotion opportunities, plum assignments, and higher pay. This book shines a light on the real rules of holding your own and pushing back for what is rightfully yours. Drawing on interviews with high-level leaders, Rezvani offers listeners the truth about how women have asked their way to the top.

I've read the book and wanted to be reminded of what I read a few years ago. Listening to the content was a refreshing way to receive the valuable information on this book. just knowing what the 4 Agreements are is not enough, revisiting the explanation of each is where the magic is. the story is presented clearly. nice job.

Brilliant, beautiful, and stunningly effective, psychologist Dr. Grace Blades has a special gift for treating troubled souls and healing tormented psyches - perhaps because she bears her own invisible scars. Only five years old when she witnessed her parents die in a bloody murder-suicide, Grace took refuge in her towering intellect and found comfort in the loving couple who adopted her. But as an adult, Grace's accomplished professional life vies with a covert, high-risk dark side, played out harrowingly. And when Grace's two worlds shockingly converge, her past returns with a vengeance.

something about this story just didn't capture me. by the end of the novel I felt the plot escaped me. I was basically shocked when I realized I was at the end. ..just didn't get it.

the performance was also mediocre. I was disappointed.

There's a voice in the universe calling each of us to remember our purpose, our reason for being here now, in this world of impermanence. The voice whispers, shouts, and sings to us that this experience of being in form, in space and time, knowing life and death, has meaning. The voice is that of inspiration, which is within each and every one of us.

Would you consider the audio edition of Inspiration to be better than the print version?

Haven't read the print version.

What other book might you compare Inspiration to and why?

Perfectly aligned with the Wayne Dyer train of teaching.

What about Wayne W. Dyer’s performance did you like?

Steady calm pace made it easy to absorb.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Inspiration?

I love all the different perspectives he gives of what it means to live in spirit, be inspired and to inspire....a well rounded explanation with appreciation of his shared personal examples.
