When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook because it was both highly informative and entertaining at the same time. Prof. Anne Curzan has indeed made a great series of lessons on this topic. But since I have studied some linguistics before, I found the content a little too basic for my needs. It did, however, provide me with some much needed repetition.

If you could sum up Me Before You in three words, what would they be?

I found the story realistic, moving and interesting.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Me Before You?

The part where Will Trainer comes to Lou's house for her birthday dinner.

Who was the most memorable character of Me Before You and why?

All of the characters were wonderful, but if I had to choose one it would have to be Will Trainer. I like his determination and dry wit.

New discoveries in archaeology and recent bestsellers and movies such as The Da Vinci Code and The Passion of the Christ have sparked a renaissance of the many controversies that have remained unanswered in Christianity and other religions. At the heart of these controversies is Jesus. With a unique perspective only Sylvia Browne could bring, The Mystical Life of Jesus is filled with the details of Jesus' inspiring life.

What made the experience of listening to The Mystical Life of Jesus the most enjoyable?

Sylvia Browne provides a new and surprisingly convincing perspective on the life of Jesus and his teachings. While I was studying religion at college, there were several stories about Jesus and his life, as told by the New Testament, that did not ring true to me. Therefore, I was inclined to dismiss the claim that Jesus ever existed. Browne's account of his life, however, rings true and she provides a down to earth and much more believable account of his life. She also emphasizes the most important elements of Jesus' message, which have sadly been forgotten by many Christians today. A good and interesting listen you shouldn't miss!

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

Absolutely.
