If you'd like to earn Multiple Streams of Property Income in the shortest possible (yet realistic) timeframe, and if you'd like to earn recurring, passive income from all four income "Quarters", and if you'd like to set up simple systems to "set and forget" each income stream to allow them to compound year on year, then this book is for you. If you want unrealistic get rich super-quick, or you want to work yourself to the bone for the next 50 years, then this book is not for you.

I found it really frustrating listening to a book that could have been a valuable resource, but ended up as a tee up for £5000 training programs and endless long lists of things you could do as a property investor.

I wouldn't object to the offer of further assistance at the end if there was a good solid introduction for even a couple of the overwhelming number of strategies mentioned.

Instead there is literally nothing practical in the book to explain how to set up multiple streams of income from property. All I know after eight hours is, it is possible.

The theme of this four-day retreat: "It's Always Now" The Now is inseparable from who you are at the deepest level. It is the prerequisite of Being. As you listen to the words on this tape, you participate in the retreat. To "retreat" means to step back - not only from the outer world, but also from the world in your head, the thinking mind. Allow the sound of the words to take you beyond words and beyond sound to the stillness within.

If you've listened to or read "The Power of Now" or any of Ekhart's other works and enjoyed these, I don't think it's possible that you could listen to this and not find it an awesome recording. The Journey into Yourself was recorded at one of Ekhart's three day retreats. Delivering a magical mix of insight, humour and serenity there is no doubt that this man has awakened an energy in himself that we all unconsciously or even consciously seek to reunite with. Ekhart, in the most gentle of ways, is on a mission to facilitate this process for any human being who is open and ready.

To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

One of those books that I think you have to be ready to read (listen to); it sort of finds you rather than the other way around. I've read many other titles that describe living in the moment. The principle is essentially that underlying the ancient religions and particularly buddhism, although mostly lost in dogma. Nothing I've read explained the power of being fully present as clearly and in such simple yet fascinating way. I also agree that listening to the author adds another dimension to the book who without doubt provides understanding of the way to a life of peace of mind and fulfilment. If you're drawn to this title you won't regret downloading it.

Now revised for a new millennium, The New Psycho-Cybernetics remains true to Dr. Maltz's visionary approach and proven groundbreaking techniques.

Disagree with negative review. Although this is a book first written in the early 60s and does have a thread running through it, it is one of those books that turns a light bulb on in your head. The original author was a cosmetic surgeon who found that although you can physically treat various conditions with the knife it often didn't help to change the way patients felt about themselves. The book addresses the effect of self image on success and achievement in life. I found this was explained very well and the methods of influencing and changing this seem to be effective and an interesting listen.

Useful tips to help achieve a more professional level of speech. The way we speak can say as much about us as the clothes we wear, the car we drive, or even the newspapers and magazines we read.

I really enjoyed listening to this title and it does go into great detail about current and correct pronunciation of words and sentences, and the linguistics and muscle movements behind speech. I really think anyone could benefit from listening to this no matter how advanced their spoken English.

What was a little disappointing for me was that the recording covers a huge amount of ground in an hour and I felt it would have been better if presented more slowly, repeating the various points in different ways to help you digest them. It felt very rushed with 2-3 hours being more realistic to deal with all the exercises and lessons - like having an hour to eat a five course meal.

You do need a quiet place to practice several of the exercises, definitely not one for the tube!

If your job is getting you down or your boss is a pain in the ****, this audio book is for you. The biggest chunk of your life (when you're awake) is spent at work. If your work life is wrong then your whole life is wrong. You've got two options: learn to enjoy the job you're in now or leave and get a new one. Whatever you do, don't put up with second best. Once you've downloaded this audio book, you won't even remember what second best was.

This very short title didn't do it for me. I understand that this covers some classic NLP techniques but without an introduction, any background or explanation of what you're doing, to my mind this was the audio equivalent of reading someone's jotted notes on an envelope or the essay you wrote on the bus to school. This is a shame because there is the basis of a book here.

Although the author is very easy to listen to if you are unfamiliar with nutritional supplements you will need to make notes or refer to the website where there are downloads. As the recording claims you can quit almost any addictive substance from sugar to crack cocaine by taking a handful of vitamins, amino acids, etc. that cost only about ?2 a day, it really has to be worth a try. Note the author stresses that severe drug and alcohol addiction does also require medical and group support. I've quit caffeine already after two weeks of following the program, something I've been trying to do for years. I have also noticed a big change in how I feel generally I think because as the book suggests the program is about normalising your brain chemistry, after which you can stop taking most of the supplements.

This is a short recording of a seminar given by the author and I listened with initial sketicism. I was wrong to be concerned. It is worth listening to for the comedy alone - it is very funny. It isn't just comedic however it is a very impressive performance that in a short space of time summarises what to do and perhaps more importantly what not to do to be effective at selling. I won't spoil it by giving away any of the information here but recommend that anyone with sales as part of their role or business would almost certainly benefit from listening.

Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.

I'd known about this book for a long time and it was always on my list of books to read (listen to). I found the 7 habits fascinating. The age of the book does come across and it is a little preachy but Stephen Covey's research, conclusions and insights are staggering in their depth. Although you come away feeling that a lot of what he says is common sense, the vast majority of people, including myself, would never think in those terms. Stephen unravels what it is to be human and how to make the most of that gift. I can't believe anyone listening could fail to benefit hugely from the experience.
