Can you name the ten commandments? That's all right...you're not alone. More people claim to live by the ten commandments than those who know what they are, let alone what they mean. In this audio program, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, author of the best selling How Could You Do That? and host of her own internationally syndicated radio program, and Rabbi Stewart Vogel, spiritual leader of Temple Aliyah in Woodland Hills, CA, collaborate to read their modern application of God's laws, incorporating lively discussions on the Bible and the Judeo-Christian values derived from it.

it was hard to listen to for the first half of the book but I did push myself to continue listening. in the end I'm glad I did. even if it was more of a recap of things I already knew there were points that just cut you down because their right, you have let things slip by. so I'd recommend we put these factors of the 10 commandments and what is shared into our lives. to better live and be good as God would want it to be and not society.

I've listened to 3 of her books and all deserve a 5 star rating. But the reason I wasn't too impressed with this one was

1st because the Rabi she has randomly reading chapters sounds as if he has a retainer in his mouth as he reads. when he read the 3rd commandment and says Idolatry I thought he was saying Adultery.
2ed I thought they were going to make a religious book about the Bible. instead it became a book where it compares Jewish religion with Christians. Not mentioning another bible chapter and verse to reference beside the 10 commandments.
3rd Now I'm not going to say it's a bad book. it's a good book for those that aren't familiar with the bible. or has ever considered living what the good book tells then to live. yet I being dedicated to the Bible growing up this book sounded like listing to a series of sermons of how to relate the commandments to today's life.

Now I had a chance to read a few pages of the book in a library and decided to get it on audible. But I was worried that the person reading that would bore me. Yet it was the complete opposite! She has a voice, a way to present it that in the 1st 3 minutes she already has you. The way she talks really grabs your attention and inject the reasoning she's trying to have you see.
This was definitely something I needed to hear because I know I have a problem being clingy even when I'm not in relations with that person anymore. I have a hard time just letting go of a friendship always wanting to believe it can revive again. So even though this isn't as long as normal books her Bluntness definitely helps for you to see reason. besides listen into the examples of situations that you know we should not fall in. an even as a little girl I sow it as a embarrassment to see/hear women fall so low.

Your happiness and success depend directly on your "people skills" - how well you get along with others, and how well you really know yourself. Now you can use a remarkable tool for evaluating your own personality and the personalities of your friends, family members, clients, and co-workers. It's called the Enneagram, an ancient geometric figure that delineates the nine basic personality types of human nature.

This is really a Great book and I enjoyed it very much. I had delayed myself in purchasing and listen to this book on account of the many reviews criticizing that it was repeating itself.
Now I'm sorry that I waited so long.

I have listened and read many enneagram book and this book is refreshing to hear. It's not necessarily at the beginner's level so if you're familiar with the enneagram base it's easy to keep up with the different comparisons. There's information presented that I hadn't heard in other books or perhaps it was just said in a different manner. Not saying the entire book is this way but even small new information can be the key to what you've been looking for all along.

and honestly I having a close 9 friend. I honestly really like the way this book presents the 9. It mentioning many weakness or ways to help them mentioned in this book that I show and use in the first four year relationship. Yet 9's always wanting being optimistic, I can see why it would be hard for them to hear the reality.

Seemed boring. ive been in door to door sales for 4 years and feel as if they take an outline process and take forever to explain it.

i got this book with the intention to get a sae done the same day, as the title proclaim, when in reality it just goes over how to take down the customers defense and built trust. most of its sale examples don't even relate to me.

more for home or car sales men.
it wasn't for me so surprised to see such high ratings perhapes for starters.

The sales profession is in the midst of a perfect storm. Buyers have more power - more information, more at stake, and more control over the sales process - than any time in history. Technology is bringing disruptive change at an ever-increasing pace, creating fear and uncertainty that leaves buyers clinging to the status quo.

with the high ratings this book has I expected better. Ive been doing sales for the pasy 4 years and so am looking for a book that will make me tue best of the best. For there is always someone better even if your on top.

Ive listened to half of this book and its been like listening to the Basics tips employers should have already trained you with. So far its like skills I was taught my first year. But I wanted to give this book a chance. But now half way through I feel like Im now waisting my time. He's takes more time explaining the problems than going over the many ways to over come that problem. Cause I want to hear new stuff for that is the root of learning from what you already know.

Returning the book.

i found it use ful to listen to. For the majority of the book it was a logical explaination to how we should view and approach apologies. Yet at the end of the book when she started to talk about forgiveness it started to take the route to not having to forgive. first forgiving in percentages, which is do-able yet it didnt have the intention of reaching full forgiveness. than it moved on to not forgiving others for what they did wrong to you but not letting it bug you or be on your chest. 1st i thought that sounded anti-christian when we are to love our enemies and to forgive others as the Lord God up in heaven forgives us. Plus it didnt make sence to be able to move on while not giving forgiveness but being able to let our aggression go. That isn't healing, thats forgetting about the pain till a similar situation reoccurs if not interactions with that same person happen. . . . well that was by the 2ed or 3rd of the last chapters of the book. so after that point I became more cautious of her future suggestions. Yet calming to listen to with her voice.

Everywhere we look, we see evidence that love is in short supply. Terrorists and political corruption, school shootings and troubled marriages, impatient online sniping and character assassination - all point to the fact that we do not know how to love one another as Jesus commanded and modeled. We put our own interests and happiness first, despite the fact that the greatest happiness comes through sacrificial love.

Now I'm going to rate this a 2 star only because i have read his other books he's been involved in and those are 5 stars. Yet I'm disappoint in this one because it kept feeling over my head. It was like hard for me to process it. I highly credited his previous book "Connecting", so I finished this book in the hopes to understand it. Unfortunately it still didnt fully make sence is if looking at a picture shaped as a donut. Sweet insight but you feel like something is missing.

That doesn't necessarily mean the book IS not good. Perhaps it just wasnt for me. I tried to go back to digest it months later but it had the same effect after a short while so I didnt continue.

Yet I did continued afterwards with Larry Crabs other book entitled, "encouragment" and that book was very good and helpful.

Brain research has found that our thoughts and beliefs affect our physical, mental and spiritual health. Mind and body are interrelated, and we are designed for healthy relationships of love and trust. When we understand God as good and loving, we flourish. Unfortunately, many of us have distorted images of God and mostly think of him in fearful, punitive ways. This leads us into unhealthy patterns of self-defeating behaviors and toxic relationships. But our lives can change when God renews our minds with a truer picture of him.

Im still in the middel of reading this , i really like it but if I could change anything more concerning on how Audible has it set up, it would be to place the BIBLE Chapters its going through. Unfortunately the Chaters in Audible are not set up by the chapters in the bible or even the Books of the bible. So it become a big hide and seek when looking for a particular book of bible or storyline. it doesnt even mention where rhe new or old testiment would be. That is why I rate it a 4 star over all rating. Besides that seems like one of the best audio stories of the bible so far.
