The co-creator of the Chicken Soup series, Mark Victor Hansen, and the personal finance author, Robert Allen, have come together in a collaboration that combines inspiration with know-how. Uniquely organized, The One Minute Millionaire combines fiction and nonfiction to show the way to true wealth. Half the book is a fable about a woman faced with a terrible dilemma: Michelle must earn a million dollars in 90 days to keep her family together.

Who is this guy? A lot to say about absolutely nothing. No substance, no message except "see me, hear me, love me"

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers" - the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

I love the easy way of this author. He reads superbly, is funny, smart and very scientific, actually.

One little thing, though: the book could do with a little cutting here and there, sometimes a bit too dragged out. But - great read nevertheless.

The way we think and feel not only determines our vulnerability to disease, but which diseases we get and whether or not we recover from them. From a pioneer in the field of psychoneuroimmunology - the relationship between the brain, body, and immune system - Superimmunity explains how to activate the disease-fighting Supersystem within you.

Great beginning - first half, lots of good scientifically proven stuff in a humoristic and very easyly applicable way. Only - it doesn't last. It ends up being excercises in meditation/self-hypnosis. If I'd wanted that, I would have bought myself a book about mindfulness.

I've read a lot of self-help books over the years, but this one is different in the fact that Kelsey actually deals with the subject from a user perspective. He takes you through all the litterature - including the more scientific stuff and relates it to a normal persons difficulties of obtaining goals.
Easy read, great stuff, lots and lots of good references to further study if you so desire.

Part I of the book The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent, "Living the Art of Allowing", presents the teachings of the collective consciousness known as Abraham. This program will awaken your memory of who you really are and remind you of the power you were born with, causing a vibrational resonance with the true nature of your being.

Nothing new

If you've read one, you've read them all. At least so it seems with this one. I've rather enjoyed the Hicks's earlier work, but this is sort of redundant. Nothing new, so if you've already read a couple of Hicks-books, spare yourselft the expense this time.

Great stuff, dull reader

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-11-11

The most inspiring books (five stars) exposed to the dullest, almost yawning reader (one star) made me postpone listening to the audio for months. Now, after listening, I do appreciate the books and even - after a few hours - got used to the reader. Glad I bought it, after all, but would definitely consider buying another version, should a more vivacious reader be found.
