The chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) turns a critical eye toward such practices as telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and psychokinesis. Are such powers really possible? Science says yes. According to noted scientist and best-selling author of The Conscious Universe, Dean Radin, magic is a natural aspect of reality, and each of us can tap into this power with diligent practice.

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

If you want to be bored and /or disansatized of magic - this is the book for you. The first few chapters goes into the history of magic and far fetched stories that in my opinion so unconnected to magic. Chapter four sparked some magic (finally) , but overall I am so dissatisfied and disappointed with the book.

Has Real Magic turned you off from other books in this genre?

No because I believe there is a book out there that are better than this. I am more aware that reviews can be misleading.

How could the performance have been better?

Rewrite the whole book.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Chapter four

Any additional comments?

I am not going to rely on reviews since it was the reason I choose this audio from the others.

In this 45-minute listen, a former spy introduces two simple tools for thinking. The first describes how we think. The second helps us think ahead. They are the essential tools for getting things done. The tools are applied to an incident in a subway car in Europe where a spy faces a new enemy. Then, they're reapplied to Saddam Hussein's stockpiling (or not) of weapons of mass destruction.

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

Has the potential, but by the end of it...I was jolted to its abrupt ending. It's was interesting, but It's was difficult to get into the subject as it keeps referring to other things (to give more substance or an example) that it did not have a flow.
That's a sequel to this book, but I may be looking for other books in the same subject realm.

Would you recommend A Spy's Guide to Thinking to your friends? Why or why not?

Not rally because it was to short to appreciate it.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

Did A Spy's Guide to Thinking inspire you to do anything?

Maybe...but more to look for another book with same concept.

  • Fascinate

Why are you captivated by some people but not by others? Why do you recall some brands yet forget the rest? In a distracted, overcrowded world, how do certain leaders, friends, and family members convince you to change your behavior? Answer: fascination, the most powerful way to influence decision-making. It's more persuasive than marketing, advertising, or any other form of communication. And it all starts with seven universal triggers: lust, mystique, alarm, prestige, power, vice, and trust.

What was most disappointing about Sally Hogshead’s story?

I truly wanted to get something out of this book. i listened for 2 hours and i should have known it was not a well organized book when my interest faded away. Elbow matrix?! if you have time to listen - you may pick up some mid level info. but if you are a person looking to learn "how to trigger persuasion and captivation" for business and/or personal purposes, look for another book.
the narrator\author is story telling is at least engaging...subject is just all over the place for me and I need it to be to the point so I can use.

Unable to commit to his fiancée of nearly four years - and with no clear understanding of what’s holding him back - Andrew McCarthy finds himself at a crossroads, plagued by doubts that have clung to him for a lifetime. Something in his character has kept him always at a distance, preventing him from giving himself wholeheartedly to the woman he loves and from becoming the father that he knows his children deserve. So before he loses everything he cares about, Andrew sets out to look for answers.

What made the experience of listening to The Longest Way Home the most enjoyable?

I was first hooked with his voice...very naturally and fits author-narrator presceptive. His story of his travels and writing style was initially the reason I downloaded. I enjoy His travel column/segments in Travel Conde). Then i was intrigued by his real life dilemma with family and finding himself. I can't help but feel his passion and his vulnerability.

Intuition is that sixth sense that tells us to do certain things or respond to certain people rather than others - that feeling that we should go somewhere or do something or talk to someone. We all have this intuitive ability inside us, guiding us to where we need to go; the problem is that most of us don’t know how to tap into it. We use our minds rather than our intuition, and the result is that we are not happy or fulfilled, we feel that something is missing in life, we miss opportunities, we say no when we should be saying yes.

Subjects that would have made me fall asleep in an instant were made so captivating,tantilizing and wanting to learn more. I love the format. Making into a script-like dialogue allowed me to follow what was being discussed. I couldn't help imaging myself in the same room with the characters. I look for same format as this on other audio books of same interest. Great job!
