First, thanks so much to everyone who participated in this week’s facebook giveaway, which ran Tuesday morning until 5 p.m. yesterday. And congratulations to our five facebook giveaway winners! Owie Mahaney, Judy Shulga, Duane Goudge, Shawn Kellner and Karen Hastings, an Advance Reader Copy of Eben’s second book, Map of Heaven, is on its way to each of you as soon as you . You’ll be able to read it long before the book is available in stores or online, October 7.
If you were not one of this week’s lucky winners and you just can’t wait until October 7, fear not–this post contains not one but two excerpts of never-before-seen Map of Heaven material.
First, read the introduction to Map of Heaven. It is is available in full on the publisher’s website. In it, you can find out what Nikola Tesla, neurophsysiologist Sir John C. Eccles, and quantum physicist Max Planck have in common.
Second, listen to a www.ebenalexander.com audiobook exclusive: a 7+ minute long preview of the Map of Heaven audio book, read by Eben himself. Listen below:
If you’re an audiobook fan (as I am), note that Map of Heaven will be available from all major retailers on CD and for download, including Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, Audible and iTunes, starting October 7. If you sign up for an Audible.com trial (link here), you can preorder a copy of the MAP OF HEAVEN audio book to be delivered to your phone, computer, or other listening device on October 7–for free.
In the meantime, if you haven’t heard it yet, check out Seeking Heaven, a series of guided audio programs designed and narrated by Eben and audio meditation specialist Karen Newell, co-founder of Sacred Acoustics, or brush up on Eben’s story by hearing him tell it in his own voice on the audiobook Proof of Heaven.
