The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

What did you like about this audiobook?

The narrator is excellent. I'm going to look up other books she's narrated

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

This is one of my favorite books of all time. I read it over a decade ago and revisiting it on audio was a pleasure. The characters are complex, I love learning a bit of history and subject matter gets you thinking. Love it.

I love Dr. Fuhrman's work and have read Eat to live earlier. Eat for Health is a different version of Eat to Live. Both are great!!!! I don't understand though why we're not getting book two of Eat for Health. I've been implementing his suggestions for the past week and my mood has already improved, not to mention the 2 pounds I lost without trying.

In Loving What Is, best-selling author Byron Katie introduced thousands of people to her simple and profound method of finding happiness through questioning the mind.

In this groundbreaking book, Katie helps you question everything you have been taught to do to gain love and approval. In doing this, you discover how to find genuine love and connection.

Byron Katie takes her work deeper in this book than ever before. I had to listen to it a couple of times to truly comphrend what she was talking about. At first "weird and foreign", now eye opening and compelling! Understanding Katies material sets the listener free in their minds and in their lives.

This revolutionary primer on prosperity consciousness has been enriching millions since it was first published in 1910 and was in fact, the inspiration for The Secret. The way to prosperity is no longer a mystery. You too can prosper from the "exact science" of achieving financial success.

Dr. Wallace's book "The Science of getting rich" is fantastic. However this version of it is difficult to listen to. The narrator is to fast and to monotone to pay attention to. I ended up purchasing another version, that I enjoyed much more.

Most people have the notion that once they reach 40 or so, a slow and steady decline of the mind, eyes, ears, joints, arteries, libido, and every other system that affects the quality of life begins to take effect. However, according to Drs. Roizen and Oz, that's a mistake.

Stephen Mitchell, the renowned translator of the Tao Te Ching, selected excerpts from that ancient text as a stimulus for Byron Katie to talk about the most essential issues that face us all: life and death, good and evil, love, work, and fulfillment. The result is an audiobook that allows the timeless insights of the Tao Te Ching to resonate anew for us today, while offering a vivid and illuminating glimpse into the life of someone who lives what Lao-tzu wrote more than 2,500 years ago.

This work goes to a deeper level in consciousness than Byron Katies original work, "Loving What is". It may sound a bit strange to someone new to spritual work, yet I promise it will be life changing if given a chance. This is an audio you must give yourself to to truly comprehend it's richness. I'm a huge fan of Byron Katie and would recommend all of her works. It's life changing when applied.

Out of nowhere, like a fresh breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice on what to believe, comes Byron Katie and what she calls "The Work". In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed. Then one morning, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her, and now, in Loving What Is, you can discover the same freedom through The Work.

The Artist's Way is the seminal book on the subject of creativity. An international best seller, millions have found it to be an invaluable guide to living the artist's life. Still as vital today, or perhaps even more so, than it was when it was first published one decade ago, it is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work.

It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.
