Becoming Magic is book one of a complete course in becoming creator of your own exceptional life. In this book, I outline the exact steps which enabled me to move my own life from one of poverty and drudgery, to one of previously unimaginable wealth, purpose and joy. But Magic? I do hope you are joking! That's what I would have said, five or ten years ago. I once despised all things 'New-Age'; all these spiritual types and their airy-fairy views, their bad science and their irrational beliefs.

A short book which gives a preview of the author's point of view of the law of attraction which it's called magic, really pissed me off that a very not profound knowledge is revealed with the promise of other more advanced books. Information presented is not important and I have no intention of buying more books in other words they want you to keep buying they crappy series. No way

In this eye-opening account, Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice. Not only is the cliché flawed - preexisting passions are rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work - but it can also be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping. After making his case against passion, Newport sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do.

Ever since being part of the pot in a high-stakes poker game, elfin outcast Kai Gracen figures he used up his good karma when Dempsey, a human Stalker, won the hand and took him in. Following the violent merge of Earth and Underhill, the human and elfin races are left with a messy, monster-ridden world, and Stalkers are the only cavalry willing to ride to someone's rescue when something shadowy appears.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The theme is very predictable, Harry has two cases and they are related? How rare? the same old private detective, not really a new idea.

What did you like best about this story?

It was short and for some time got interesting.

Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't really like his performance.

Was Storm Front worth the listening time?

Not really, but was short.

Any additional comments?

Not really going to buy any more of the Harry Dreden series.

At their first meeting, a remarkable bond was sparked between His Holiness the Dalai Lama, one of the world's most revered spiritual leaders, and the psychologist Paul Ekman, whose groundbreaking work helped to define the science of emotions. Now these two luminaries share their thinking about science and spirituality, the bonds between East and West, and the nature and quality of our emotional lives.
