Finally a book that explains how and why we form the relationships we do. Dr. Newman and Ms. Rice explain the mystery of forming and maintaining the perfect relationship in the most important areas of our lives - the personal (friends), the professional (co-workers, supervisors, and executives), and the romantic relationship. Dr. Newman and Ms. Rice explain why most relationships fail but more importantly they explain how the subconscious life script forms our sexual personality that affects every aspect of our relationship life.

What made the experience of listening to Get What You Want: From the Bedroom to the Boardroom the most enjoyable?

The narrator, it was like he was telling a story, a true story, from Dr. Newmans case files. I learned how and why past relationship failed. Now I look at people and relationships totally differently. Dr. Newman gave me power.

What other book might you compare Get What You Want: From the Bedroom to the Boardroom to and why?

I cannot think of one. This book is totally unique

What does Rick Sinclair bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

OMG, his voice is perfect, I was lulled deeper and deeper into the book with each word.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Tired of the strays and losers, breaking the relationship fails forever

Now considered a classic in the field, this remarkable book was the first to fully explore the mystery of life between lives. Journey of Souls presents the first-hand accounts of 29 people placed in a "superconscious" state of awareness using Dr. Michael Newton's groundbreaking techniques. This unique approach allows Dr. Newton to reach his subjects' hidden memories of life in the spirit world after physical death.

If you could sum up Journey of Souls in three words, what would they be?

Souls Journey is an in depth look into a hypnotherapist case book. Presented in a clear cut, scientific researchers point of view. The author is really more like a journalist asking questions of the soul. The information contained in this book is presented neither as right or wrong, simply as something that just is. I really enjoyed this book, and found that the information it contains some very interesting concepts.

What other book might you compare Journey of Souls to and why?

None that I can think of, I enjoyed this very very much

Which scene was your favorite?

The future progression. While most of us think of this kind of work as past life regression, I found it much more interesting when the author progressed the soul into the future and described in great detail how, and why the soul selects a body.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I really did; however, it was too long for me to do this. I listed to it as I walked, drove in the car, and anywhere else I could.

Any additional comments?

If you have any interested in this subject, I highly recommend this book, you will be held spellbound and hanging onto each and every word.

Dr. Rankin discovered the health care she had been taught was missing something: a recognition of the body’s innate ability to self-repair. Using cases of spontaneous healing, Dr. Rankin shows how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs can alter the body’s physiology. She lays out the data proving that loneliness, pessimism, depression, fear, and anxiety damage the body, while intimate relationships, gratitude, meditation, sex, and authentic self-expression flip on the body’s self-healing processes.

What made the experience of listening to The Art of Intelligence the most enjoyable?

The story. The narrator spoked as if you and he were in a living room or a den simply having a wonderful conversation.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The narrator was the main character and the storyline really doesn't use other characters as anything other than additional decoration to the story line.

The book is almost presented as a debriefing transcript.

What about David Colacci’s performance did you like?

I liked the entire story and the "factual way it was presented." If however, I was not truly interested in the subject, I would never have finished it. Most of the narration is presented in a monotone and the other characters are very flat. Mr. Colacci's performance would be greatly enhanced if he performed the story with his voice rather than presenting it in a "give me the facts, just the facts."

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I purchased this book with high expectations; however, those expectations really were not met. What I expected was a teaching of the Kabbalah, however, what I received in this books was a rehash of information that I had already learned though many other sources. If the reader (listener) of this book had no knowledge of Jewish mysticism, they might find it interesting; however, without such knowledge, I fear the reader (listener) would become bored, and most likely wouldn't finish this book.

The narrator did a good job, it was presented in a very basic and simplistic way that is steeped in long stories to illustrate the most basic concepts that most people already know.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mystical Kabbalah?

I didn't find one

Would you listen to another book narrated by Rabbi David A. Cooper?

Most likely not. Rabbi Cooper may be a wonderful teacher and speaker in person; however, his style of talking and teaching really doesn't come though well on a audible book.

Could you see The Mystical Kabbalah being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Wonderful topic and I could see the topic being made into a lecture series but I couldn't find "entertainment value" to a general audience.

Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.
