Jed McKenna Trilogy Audiobooks

Post by erict » Sat Jun 26, 2010 4:06 pm

I've been waiting for the audiobook version of the 3rd Jed McKenna book, Spiritual Warfare, for a long time, and finally it has arrived! :) A pleasant bonus is that the Jed McKenna Notebook is also available in an audiobook version, and though I was skecptical of it at first, I enjoyed it immensely when I read it.

You can order CDs, or as I have, buy MP3s online:

The first and third books are some of my favorite books ever, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Not only did they help me realize many important things, they are really fun to read/listen to. :)

Agreed! I downloaded some audio. It is pretty much funny as well as informing. It is fun which makes it easier to listen to

Hmm, posted in the Adya section... Is this an implication or has the who is Jed question been resolved?

Hey randomguy, i have googled a little bit about jed and most believe it is adyashanti, they are quite similar as mentioned by erict in previous posts. What are your thoughts? It would be nice to know who it is, but then again as long as it works and its awesome funny and enlightening then who cares i say!

Hi livingdeeply, I agree completely about the gravity of knowing the author's identity. It's just a fun mystery. I have only read the beginning of the first book, so I don't have too many thoughts on it. Although, that seems enough reading so that I would not be surprised if it were Adyashanti. I enjoyed what I read. I like the first person narrative as the teacher, and very much prefer the story format in which this (first) book is structured over long explanations of what is true.

In attempt to get back onto the topic of the audio format, I find the reader is always a significant factor in enjoying an audio book. At least, the reader has to be tolerable to make the effort. How is the reading of these audio books? Thanks.

Yes, but i do find that when adya writes or speaks its never in such great english. i know its a story but adya is very free flowing with his audio and writing, from what i have read anyway.

I love the audio, you should try it, it is just funny, the voice is great and the way things are said or emphasised, i think i laugh at a lot of it and see the truth in it.

I have downloaded the second audio and i am on track number two, gets funnier ha ha. Great recommendation

I just read spiritual warfare and it`s "a masterpiece - highly disturbing" as its says on the cover.
Makes me wish I had never posted any message on this forum - and I guess this is a good thing :)
