Review: First I have to say that the Dresden Files are among the best written fantasy series I have ever read. I give the books an unqualified recommendation to anyone who is remotely interested in fantasy, noir detective fiction, first person action, or just good stories.
I am writing this mostly to point out the absurdity of the pricing on this collection. A prior reviewer has already pointed out that it's cheaper to go the traditional book route with the Dresden Files - either mass market pape... Read more
Review: Although none of the advice applied specifically to my own problems, the first principles of motivation the author described were directly applicable to my life, and showed me all the motivation-related mistakes I was making, and how to resolve them. Extremely valuable book. Read more
Review: One thing that is sure about this is that it was written with heart and soul. Apart from the fact that the author really absorbs himself into his writing, it is clear that he knows something about becoming loving and open minded. I must warn you, for those that prefer to stay away from religion, there is some referencing of the Bible and Christianity. I however, was totally fine with that. In any case, the book was written warmth will benefit the many of you. It does have great points. Read more
Review: Lila is a brilliant book continuing Pirsig's journey concerning the Metaphysics of Quality in Philosophy.
This book is for those die hard Robert Pirsig fans,psychology majors like myself and true philosopher kings debating Quality.
Its a great book summarizing everything from shamanism to psychiatry to "dynamic quality." It's an interesting romance novel with a philosophical bent. It's all an examination of one woman's sanity and a pure philosophical inquiry into reality.
It's about a ... Read more

Review: A very useful book with regard to personal development a map of the ego (psyche) is a very useful tool never the less its got its limitations & in my view dosnt go far enough. But we develop in stages & id suggest for many its a great start to a great adventure Read more
Review: This book does not have any easy answers. It is not the purpose of the book. The purpose of the book is to make the reader think for themselves. I find the book a comforting read - it gives hope and meaning to everyone that is dissatisfied with the answers given by organized religion, political parties, or just the usual howling mobs of sheep that think that just because they are members of a group they are wolves.
Nietzsche probably understood suffering and loss better than most, but he ... Read more
Review: The Blank Slate is a brilliant synthesis of biology, psychology and humanism, composed by a polymath who is also a gifted writer. Perhaps the highest compliment I can give it is that in the future it will be regarded as boringly obvious. Today, however, it is a presentation of insights that, singly, are recognized by only few, and combined, by practically no one.
Drawing to a considerable extent on the work of R. Trivers and E. O. Wilson, The Blank Slate carries their thinking further, con... Read more
Review: Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief by Jordan Peterson is a great prelude to "Saam Medical Meditation's" and "Saam Meditation: The Interpretation of Dreams" - Organ Centered Consciousness. In terms of consciousness what Jordan Peterson and Carl Jung are missing is that consciousness resides in the internal organs. Archetypes are formed and stored in the Spleen which represents the need for children to grow big (through nutrition), to counter the fears and threats that are likely to harm... Read more
