I guess i got the wrong book. I wanted to know how to meditate effectively.
But this book only talks about how good and fantastic meditation is. Which i knew. He goes on and on and on about his life story and his foundation and donations and other people story of meditation but not a single hint of how to do meditation!

This leading-edge program by Esther and Jerry Hicks, who present the teachings of the non-physical entity Abraham, will help you understand the emotions that you've been experiencing all of your life. Instead of the out-of-control, knee-jerk reactions that most people have to their ever-changing life experience, this work will put those responses into a broader context. You'll come to understand what emotions are, what each of them means, and how to effectively utilize your new awareness of them.

Among the many "how-to" playwriting books that have appeared over the years, there have been few that attempt to analyze the mysteries of play construction. Lajos Egri's classic, The Art of Dramatic Writing, does just that, with instruction that can be applied equally well to a short story, novel, or screenplay. Examining a play from the inside out, Egri starts with the heart of any drama: its characters. All good dramatic writing hinges on people and their relationships.

1913 - Suffragette throws herself under the King's horse. 1969 - Feminists storm Miss World. Now - Caitlin Moran rewrites "The Female Eunuch" from a bar stool and demands to know why pants are getting smaller. There's never been a better time to be a woman: we have the vote and the Pill, and we haven't been burnt as witches since 1727. However, a few nagging questions do remain.... Why are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should you get Botox? Do men secretly hate us? What should you call your vagina?

Would you consider the audio edition of Save the Cat! Strikes Back to be better than the print version?

He has great tips and advice on screenwriting business in general in this second series of save the cat book. The performace of this audio is great. I gave 3 stars because it was too long for the content.

What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Exitment, quirkiness.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No
