In this inspiring audio, bestselling author Wayne W. Dyer poses the question, "What our ancestral scholars, whom we consider the wisest and most spiritually a advanced, have to say to us today?"

The answer lies in this powerful collection of writings, poems and phrases by some of the greatest thinkers of the past twenty-five centuries. In succinct original essays, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer sets out to explain the meaning and context of each piece of wisdom, and most important, to explain how we can actively apply these teachings to our modern lives.

From ancestral masters including Buddha, Michelangelo, Rumi, Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and Jesus, here are treasured passages on a variety of subjects, including solitude, time, and passion. Among the contributions are thoughts about the importance of action written by Mother Theresa, words in inspiration from Patanjali, author of the Hindu classic Yoga Sutras, and teachings about the power of prayer from thirteenth century monk St. Francis of Assisi.

The voices collected here cut across a wide range of historical eras and cultures, yet they communicate universal truths about the human experience. Wisdom of the Ages provides us with a marvelous dual opportunity: to receive guidance from our great ancestors and to recognize our own potential for greatness.

Talking just to me

Written by Commuter Roger from Fairfax, VA on October 30th, 2006

  • Book Rating: 5/5

I really enjoyed listening to this book on my way back and forth to work. Dr. Dyer sounded like he was talking directly to me. I had not read the hard copy of the book, and when I looked at it I was disappointed that there was not more on the audio. I enjoyed hearing about each persons writings followed by the ideas Dr. Dyer got from the writings, and what we can do to apply the ideas to our own life.

If I had to buy one Wayne Dyer book ...

If I had only one book to buy for friends and family, it is this book. The audio book is short and the hard copy is beautiful and offers a wide array of quotations and wisdom. I enjoy riding to and from work with Wayne speaking to me in my car. It lifts my spirit during my transition between the two worlds. Enjoy!
