I believe every experience we go through in life is to prepare us for what's to come in our lives - to teach us the life lessons we need to know so we can be best prepared to handle our ultimate test, somewhere in the future. I believe our lives are an accumulation of life lessons that can only be learned by personal experience, to be completely understood.

Today's savvy e-commerce business owner knows how to compete. In years past, a business shopped for the products they wanted to resell, then they purchased the items and stored them while they searched for an end user or consumer. Once the product was sold, they shipped the item to their customer. Drop shipping is a proven way of reducing or eliminating many of these expenses, thus making the end price lower for the consumer and more profitable for the seller. This guide will tell you how to get started.

This was light wait at best. Telling you Amazon doesn't take PayPal. DUH! Telling you to watch every sale & be nice to your customers.

Nothing on what software did what or what you need in software. Nothing about how to obtain reliable dropship people. And he says that they are manufactured. Sometimes, but usually wholesalers.

If it had cost more, I'd ask for my money back. Maybe I still will to see if he's tracking his sales.

What is art? Why do we value images of saints, kings, goddesses, battles, landscapes or cities from eras of history utterly remote from ourselves? This history of art shows how painters, sculptors and architects have expressed the belief systems of their age: religious, political and aesthetic. From the ancient civilisations of Egypt, Mesopotamia and Greece, to the revolutionary years of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the artist has acted as a mirror to the ideals and conflicts of the human mind.

I wanted a refresher on the different stages – types – of painting. This book gave it to me and put it in context of the events happening in the world or social influences.

The reading sounded like just that – reading, not a professor teaching a class.

The story was accurate as far as it went, but didn't go as deep as I would have liked into the artists, their craft, their inspiration. A missed opportunity.

When the topic of channeling comes up, a lot of people are rather skeptical of it and dismiss it as quickly as it arose. As this practice makes a resurgence in our society, it is essential that we have an understanding of what we are dealing with. The best way to deal with a challenge is to have at least a basic understanding of it. The author goes to great lengths to put as much detail into this book as he possibly can.

The channeled literature of Paul Selig - who receives clairaudient dictation from unseen intellects called the Guides - has quickly become the most important and celebrated expression of channeling since A Course in Miracles rose to prominence in the 1970s. Selig's three previous books - I Am the Word, The Book of Love and Creation, and The Book of Knowing and Worth - have won a growing following around the world for their depth, intimacy, and psychological insight. The Book of Mastery provides a deeply practical prescription for heightening your abilities, aptitudes, and sense of personal excellence.

Where does The Vision rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Even this early Koontz is better than most novels. Hints of what Koonz will become.

What could Dean Koontz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Rewritten the book with his current ability! [SMILE]

Have you listened to any of Dan John Miller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Nope.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me urge the writing & plot to come up to Koontz's current ability
