Audio That Changes Lives

Since we started LearnOutLoud we've had a core mission: Do everything we can to promote life-changing audio. We believe in the power of audio to improve your life through education and inspiration. At the very least it can turn a boring commute into something you actually look forward to. And at it's best? Simply put, we feel it can dramatically change the course of your life for the better.

This week we wanted to spotlight some titles that we feel have the power to change lives. These might be titles that you would benefit from or ones that you might want to recommend to a friend. Either way, the best part about listening to these titles is that you don't need to take any extra time out of your day to do so. Just pop them in when you're in your car, at the gym or getting stuff done around the house. You'll be amazed at how much time there is in the day to learn out loud.

Life-Changing Audio Titles

The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand's classic novels have been life-changing for many people. But they aren't the shortest reads. That's why we love the audio versions of these. The abridged versions have a brilliant narrator (Edward Hermann) and there are unabridged versions available as well.

The Science of Getting Rich - A classic on the subject of wealth creation. We have two different versions of this one available on our site, one which was recorded in our studios by Brian Johnson and another by Gildan Media which sells for under $3!

Anything by Dan Millman - Dan's most well-known work Way of the Peaceful Warrior is actually sub-titled "A Book That Changes Lives." Indeed, Dan's material is highly inspirational and very accessible. A couple of Dan's titles (Energizing the Body and The Twelve Gateways to Freedom are among our best-sellers.

Our Free Audiobooks of the Month - Every month we put out a free audiobook that we've produced. Our main criteria for selecting a book? Whether it will change lives. Our current free audiobook is Selected Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Past selections have included Siddhartha and the Tao Te Ching.

This is just a sampling. We've got a whole lot more life-changing audio on our site. We encourage you to poke around and see what you can find. And we'd love to hear from you too about audiobooks or podcasts that you've listened to that have changed your life. Send us an e-mail at lifechanging@learnoutloud.com and let us know and we'll include some of them in an upcoming edition of this newsletter.

Paypal and International Payments

We've had a lot of requests to allow payment with Paypal and also to open up the site for international orders. We're proud to announce that we've done both of these things (Note: International orders can only be downloads for now as we currently don't ship CDs and cassettes overseas). For more information about these new options, click here.

Free Audio for LOL Members

We're passionate about getting you the best audio content we can find. We also realize that some of you are on tight budgets and therefore we've done all we can to list as many free audio learning resources on our site as possible. Our Free Audio and Video Directory has almost 800 titles now and if you haven't been there in a while you'll definitely want to check it out. We're also working with a number of publishers to bring you free audio titles that aren't readily available elsewhere. Here are a couple of examples:

Rockefeller Center and the Diamond District - The good folks over at Sounds for Sights have made one of their excellent audio walking tours available for free on our site. If you live anywhere near New York City or are planning a trip there anytime soon you should definitely do this walking tour.

The Practice of the Presence of God - Our friends at ChristianAudio are making this audiobook available free on LearnOutLoud. In addition to this title you should definitely check out the two podcasts of theirs that we have listed in our Podcast Directory.

If you're interested in more free audio we would highly recommend subscribing to our Free Resource of the Day e-mail. Each day during the week you'll receive an e-mail with links to free audio resources like the ones above. We hope you enjoy them!
