Once the stage by stage relaxation of the body has been completed, you will be encouraged to imagine yourself lying peacefully on a tropical beach and move into an ever deeper state of relaxation, calmed and pacified.
Finally you will be brought gradually back to a state of wakefulness, rested and refreshed.

Very Relaxing- Until Audible Brands It
I really enjoyed this Relaxtion, I've used it to try and quiet my brain when getting to sleep was a problem, or to use time on an airplane to just mellow out and regroup with my brain cells. However, at the end of roughly 45 minutes, when I'm at my most relaxed, and usually have headphones in, the Audible man suddenly pipes up with "This is Audible!" at a volume nearly twice that of the track. If they append the ending, I can recommend it with 5 stars, no hesistation, it's not weird, religious, etc. just walks you through the thought progess to get your body and brain to just mellow out.

Maybe even 5 star.....
I was a little skeptical about this title, and I first thought the gentlemen's voice seemed a little "overly smooth". But once I stopped thinking and started listening, I was out like a light. My life often resembles the commercial for Adult ADD - non stop stress and interuptions. This audiobook and and a few by Glenn Harrold have helped me work a few "Power Naps" into my week. (It seems that in complete silence my brain continues to make "to do lists", but with this audiobook I calm down much faster.) I often feel more refreshed after one of these sessions than I do after 8 hours of sleep.

Simple but effective
Written and read by Hugh Fraser, this is a very simple, but very effective, relaxation audiobook. It is divided into two parts: the first half for relaxing during the day, and the second half for encouraging deep and refreshing sleep at night.
Hugh Fraser's soothing voice leads you through the relaxation, to the accompaniment of gentle, very unobtrusive music, and the sound of soporific waves breaking on the shore in the background. I don't know how it ends, as I have never yet got to the end without falling asleep - could there be any better recommendation?

I bought it beacuse of Hugh Fraser
Hugh Fraser is a wonderful narrator. I fell under his charm of course in the films with David Suchet and was so pleased to discover the chappie was also doing audible books. I often choose books because of their narrator simply because some of my favourite books end up being killed, or at least my joy is diminished by a narrator. Hence I often choose the narrators of the books I'll be listening next, but not always of course!
