Okay, I love Tolle, Dyer, Chodron, Chopra, Ruiz, Byron Katie, and many others, and that won't change. But for the clearest explanation of how to disregard that 'nut' running commentary in my head, this book wins hands down. It is funny, I mean oh so, 'oh my goodness of course' belly laugh funny, and sensible and simple. I love simple. If you really want to understand who 'you' are...the real you behind the insanity, this is a great book. I found the narrator to be fine, not perfect but I had no problem listening to him. Listened all the way through first day and started over.
I loved the other Don Miguel Ruiz audios and they are transforming me... but I would not have ordered this one had I realized it was abridged. The others are not, so I didn't even check. With that said, I still gleaned a lot from the book but wanted to mention the abridgement in case that is important to other potential listeners.
You will feel much more in touch with your real 'Self' after listening to Toltec wisdom.
Simplifies enlightenment amazingly. Big gripe. It cuts off chapter 8 and there is no way to tell how much is missing. I tried it in two different devices to make sure it was the program and not my device. But I loved this program.
Actually, the book tells me things that I have been aware of for - well - ever, but the topic is bundled in such a way that I am seeing change in a different light. Here the listener will get a framework from which change can be made. This is a practical, psychologically sound, pattern changing approach to improving life, work, and what ever you want to approach behaviorally. The book presents six sources of influence on our lives, and then individual chapters detail how those influencers can be manipulated to our advantage. This is a very helpful book. Consider reading it soon - unless you procrastinate and this book will help you once you open volume! The writing is engaging and the reading of Joseph Grenny (the second author) is very good.
