Let the wise people do the talking

Dr. Dyer's approach to presenting the principles is genius. Presenting the teachings of so many of the wise people that have walked the earth throughout our history, rather than just presenting his own ideas had a lot of impact on me as I listened to this recording.

overview

Simplistic, brief overview of chosen authors, poets, philosophers. I expected more depth and discussion based on this vast topic.
