This book has changed my life.

As a young man starting out in career, this book has really helped me put things into perspective.

I think without it I would have gotten caught up in the same traps that catch out the uninitiated.

Upon really thinking about my life's purpose, I now have the right mindset and metrics to go through life, free of worry, anxiety or comparison to others - free to pursue my unique truth.

Thank you Klayton.

What valuable company is nobody building? The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won't make a search engine. If you are copying these guys, you aren't learning from them. It's easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to 10, adding more of something familiar. Every new creation goes from zero to one. This book is about how to get there.

Blake Masters' calm, careful tone sets the scene for an audiobook which is powerful and effective.

This book gave me real insight into what it takes to run a successful organisation - everything from team to persona to exit.

Fascinating, I've already read it twice. May go back for a third!

Perfect length with powerful insights.

Definitely worth listening if you are on a journey to be Someone.

Take the first step with this book.

That said, I think this would also be useful for anyone already on a journey which requires media exposure, looking to tighten up and improve their game, to get to the next step.

Clint also provides additional online resources for further tuition at the end of the book.

How do our thoughts and emotions affect our health? Are our bodies and minds distinct from one another or do they function together as parts of an interconnected system? Neuroscientist Candace Pert provides startling and decisive answers to these and other challenging questions that scientists and philosophers have pondered for centuries. She explains the scientific basis of popular wisdom and phenomena like "gut feelings" and makes comprehensible recent discoveries in cancer and AIDS research.

Very interesting book.

As an Engineer it was scientific enough to keep me engaged, but high-level enough for someone that has not been through a medical degree.

Well written and spoken throughout. The story and messaged was clear, weaved through the scientific journey that led to her groundbreaking work.

It had led me to think more about the mind-body connection, and in particular the role of movement and meditation.

Highly recommended!

Modern Man in Search of a Soul is the classic introduction to the thought of Carl Jung. Along with Freud and Adler, Jung was one of the chief founders of modern psychiatry. In this book, Jung examines some of the most contested and crucial areas in the field of analytical psychology: dream analysis, the primitive unconscious, and the relationship between psychology and religion.

This book will have you turning over it's ideas in your free time. A real eye opener and great introduction to the works of Jung. The American accent was very strong for me as a Brit, but I soon came to love it.

Jung's analysis is so clear and considerate I couldn't help but psycho-analyse myself whilst listening to his theories.

Every sentence of Jung's is a treat, laden with such insight and meaning. You will find yourself rewinding and rewinding this audio book to gain a deeper understanding of Jung's mind.

Really good book for anyone looking to get an edge on every aspect of their life.

Also this book really breaks down a lot of the key scientific research and theory that will help you gain a deeper understanding of the sciene behind health and wellbeing.

If you're just entering the biohacking world, you'll love it. If you're a geek (like me) that is interested in the sciene, you'll also love it.

Good work Dave, keep it up!
