About the Author

Tom Butler-Bowdon is a recognized expert in the “literature of possibility”. His first book, 50 Self-Help Classics , won the Benjamin Franklin award and was a Foreword magazine Book of the Year. Tom’s trilogy of personal development books, including 50 Success Classics and 50 Spiritual Classics, have been translated into 17 languages. A graduate of the London School of Economics and the University of Sydney, he lives and works in both the UK and Australia. In addition to his writing, Tom leads seminars and runs his web site www.butler-bowdon.com.

From AudioFile

This well-narrated production offers a look at 50 arbitrarily chosen spiritual "classics," ranging from recent bestsellers to such bedrock documents as the TAO TE CHING. The book introduces Jung, Castaneda, Hesse, and less esteemed writers as well. Each section offers an overview and notes on its author, as well as bullet points at its conclusion. Part of the Coach In a Box series, this audiobook is valuable for novices in the world of bestselling metaphysical books. For those who have familiarity with the field, the production will in no way substitute for listening to the actual works. Tom Butler-Bowdon does a fine job, bringing effortless gravitas to the proceedings. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

More About the Author

A graduate of the London School of Economics and the University of Sydney, I was working as a political adviser in Australia when, at 25, I read my first personal development book, Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Captivated by that and by titles by the likes of Anthony Robbins and M Scott Peck, I came to the view that this was an underrated field of writing. At 30, I left my first career to write the bestselling 50 Self-Help Classics, the first guide to the personal development literature and winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award (2004).

This book was followed by 50 Success Classics (2004); 50 Spiritual Classics (2005); 50 Psychology Classics (2007); 50 Prosperity Classics (2008); and 50 Philosophy Classics, all published in the US and UK by Nicholas Brealey. With its commentaries on over 300 books, the series has been published in 23 languages and is sold in over 30 countries. I was described by USA Today as "a true scholar of this type of literature".

The 50 Classics series titles are available individually in paperback, Kindle and audio formats, or as an electronic box set, 'The Literature of Possibility'. The free e-book by the same title is an introduction to the series.

I am editor of a new series of classic self-development and prosperity writings published by Capstone (John Wiley & Sons), providing full-length critical Introductions to titles such as Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich, Sun Tzu's The Art of War, Machiavelli's The Prince and Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations.

My website, Butler-Bowdon.com, with its wealth of free self-development content, has had 2 million visits since its launch in 2001.

I love this audio cd. I have listened to each cd at least 5 times. I have bought copies for my sisters and my closest friends. If you want an inspirational, educational cd, buy this. You will not be disappointed. K. Hogan

A great reference for further study. It hits on the big names and gives a brief but thorough synopsis of the theories.

Format: Audio CD
Each of the 50 spiritual classics and the process of it's genesis, is describing 50 separate sparks of genius. The importance of reading, understanding, and learning about spirituality lies in the hidden aspect of everyone's psyche: the existence of the Spirit. This spirit needs to be nurtured, and a well-nurtured spirit, is a happy person. You can verify this by reviewing your own life experiences, and the relationships you have had with spiritually-nurtured people. For the inquiring mind, for the soul that seeks, and for the psychology historian - this would be a perfect edition for your library. In my book: "Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide", I fully explore the spiritual side-effects of trauma, and how the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous is a powerful systematic approach for the trauma survivor seeking a spiritual solution.
