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.

I'm sorry I do not have more to say and more good to say I do try to always find at least one part of a book I liked but after listening to this book I just couldn't agree with how it was written or presented. The author was using words like Infinatly in incorrect ways and I felt as if he was trying to squeeze science into a spirituality book. I should also probably note that I am bit a spiritual person but I did go at this book as open minded as I could.

Why can some birds sleep with only half of their brain? What really happens during REM sleep? Why do our sleep patterns change across a lifetime? Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, health and longevity. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep or what good it serves or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when it is absent. In this book, neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker charts 20 years of cutting-edge research.

This book was very hard to finish I really struggled with it and I usually have great patience to sit through to see the bigger picture but I did not agree with a lot of what was being said. I myself being a very relaxed person found my self being irritated by outlandish notions. I really am sorry to say I couldn't enjoy this book no matter how hard I tried.

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 found this boom to have some good and insightful points but I also found it difficult to stay interested. It felt at times that it was a 'How to' book where as I would agree and dissagree with different points in the book it isn't a one size fits all topic which brings it back to this being my opinion and nothing more.

Like all 20-year-olds, Ryan Cusack is trying to get his head around who he is. This is not a good time for his boss to exploit his dual heritage by opening a new black market route from Italy to Ireland. It is certainly not a good time for his adored girlfriend to decide he's irreparably corrupted. And he really wishes he hadn't accidentally caught the eye of an ornery grandmother who fancies herself his saviour.

Have you ever been put off by music theory or thought that is too hard to learn? If the answer is yes, then this book is the answer for you. It covers everything that anyone who plays (or wants to play) music, and wishes to become better as a musician, should know. This is the most comprehensive book on music theory that you can find today. Not only that, but this book is written in a way that is really easy to follow, understand and internalize all the concepts explained.
