These words have been written with purpose and hope that their suggestions may furnish you a key to open up the way to the attainment of your desires, and to explain that Fear should be entirely banished from your effort to obtain possession of the things you desire. This presupposes, of course, that your desire for possession is based upon your aspiration for greater liberty. For example, you feel that the possession of more money, lands, or friends will make you happier, and your desire for possession of these things arises from a conviction that their possession will bring you liberty and happiness.

A very good listen. Some bits very repetitive as the narrator keeps reading facts and numbers which go on for minutes and minutes!!

  • American Sniper

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions.

Chris has obviously achieved a lot in his career as a Seal. It's not usual I take the time out to write a negative review but some of the comments really annoyed me and I had to point out the ignorance some of the soldiers go into war with.
One example is where he admits he'd like to shoot all Iraqi's carrying a Quran and how the entire nation is F88ked up and beyond help. Its a fascinating view and shows the ignorance of not understanding why these people would want to kill Americans when it is America who attacked their country on a false pretense. I admire the courage of the soldiers, who are obviously doing their job even if it is in the name something that didn't exist (WMD) but I think the book could have had a more balanced view instead of the rhetoric of..We are America, we do what we like..F88k you if you dont like it

In her late 20s, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy - only keeping her from meeting her goals - she decided to set herself a challenge: she would not shop for an entire year. The Year of Less documents Cait's life for 12 months during which she bought only consumables.

I had expected this to have more substance. Whilst the author does cover what changes she made, she also goes into her own personal life a lot which at times seems irrelevant and space fillers to pad out the book.

It could be done in half the time imo.

His 40s are truly better than his 20s, and The Bulletproof Diet brings his best hacks to the masses.

If you've ever struggled with losing weight and keeping it off, I don't have to tell you it's a challenge. You already know. What if losing weight could be as easy as flipping a switch? I know that sounds incredible. But now there's an abundance of research telling us that may be possible. In his new book, The Fat Switch, Dr. Richard J. Johnson, presents news-breaking, science-based studies that will reverse current thinking on both the cause and treatment of obesity.

In 1982 Murakami began running to keep fit. Here he reflects on his running experiences. Equal parts travelogue, training log, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers his preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, this is a must-listen for fans of this masterful author and for the increasing number of people who find a similar satisfaction in running.

Book mixed with the writer's other life experiences. I was expecting a lot more emphasis on the running part with more details but didn't really get that. Whilst I have no issue with the writer talking about his novel writing experiences, how he started etc but the book title is about running l, not novel writing.

Entrepreneur Jesse Itzler will try almost anything. He brazenly pretended to be an established hip-hop artist to secure a meeting with a studio head - and it led to a record deal. He convinced a bunch successful business executives to invest in an unprecedented business plan - and it turned into Marquis Jet. He sincerely offered to run a 100-mile race in Spanx to get the attention of the beautiful founder of the company - and ended up marrying her.
