    On a beautiful, spring afternoon, a broken man stands at his wife's funeral and hears the words, “Heaven Enough.” Thus begins a poem about longing, about wishing for something more. "What would it be like if I had heaven enough?" it reads. Matt Murphy reads these words for the first time at his wife's funeral. After a death shrouded with mystery, it is the first time he learns that she wrote poetry. He and Diva were married for nearly twenty years, yet he did not "know" her. A poet and lover of culinary delights, she is struck by a car and killed instantly.

    The World's Worst Backpacker is for anyone who has gone on a day hike, picked up a backpack, or walked for a few days in the middle of nowhere. Ken's stories are not just cautionary tales; they're the kind of tales all backpackers (and would-be backpackers) acquire if they don't stop soon enough. They're the kind of tales that leave you wondering, "Am I the worst person at this?" when you start and thankful you're not when the story ends.

    If there's one thing most people can agree on, it's that there should be rules for life. And they're right. We should have a set of rules that we can all agree on, that show us how to experience happier, more authentic lives. A set of rules that cuts through the crap of everyday life to expose what it is we can all agree is true, even if it isn't always what we want to hear.

Not only does it present an understandable system of ethics but it also shows the listener how they can use ethics to create a better world.

    In September 2002, Ken left his home and drove to the Grand Canyon to kill himself. The only life he'd ever known was little more than a shambles. He'd lost his wife and now he realized that he really couldn't live without her. His choices were to either continue facing it with self-destruction, drugs, and booze, or...a running start and a jump over the edge to end it all. Ken's story is filled with dysfunctional families, love found and lost, breakups, breakdowns, and remarkable hope. It's the true story of a man without love and too destroyed to think he deserves love.

    Everything you may have heard about enlightenment, which I call Illumination, is based on hearsay derived from metaphors too out of date for most people to fully understand. That is why I have reinterpreted the metaphors for the 21st century, making your path to Illumination easier to follow than ever! But I wasn't always Illuminated. I was born a Christian, born again, brought to Atheism through critical thought, and only found my way through Buddhism after a decade of hard work.

    Write an essay every month about pursuing your dreams? Heck, it was a struggle every day just for me to keep believing in mine. And yet, that is how this audiobook began. I began writing an essay every month about pursuing your dreams for the fine folk at Recovering The Self (www.recoveringtheself.com) and an amazing thing happened: I felt it help me pursue mine! I hope the essays in this audiobook, encompassing the first year of essays in Recovering The Self (along with a little bonus material), help you get a little closer to yours.

    Nine states. Two control freaks. One steering wheel. What could possibly go wrong? It may be that a marriage ends not with a whimper but with the slam of a car door on a deserted stretch of highway. Most married couples know better than to put themselves in each other's way, but in Ken La Salle's first autobiographical monologue, he tells about how he and his wife of eight years did just that on a road trip that probably should never have happened.

    This audiobook is sent out into the world, addressed to a dreamer. It was written during a three-year period of my life, one that started at a time when I didn’t really believe in dreams and ended with me knowing unshakably the power that dreams have to make our lives better.

    I recently opened up my chest of childhood memories, faced a decade I had long since forgotten, and wrote these words: "It was the hippest of times. It was the funkiest of times. It was the 1970s." And I grew up right there in the middle of it. I won talent shows. I went to camp. I fought the school bully for the honor of the girl I loved. I lost my father. But having just turned 50, I decided the time had come to take an honest look at those years without the tinted lens of nostalgia, which allowed me to remember so much more.
