Short. To the point. Helpful with getting through the pondering and oft times paralyzed stage of projects and creation. Upbeat and encouraging. A book I have listened to several times and will definitely play again. A highly recommended positive motivator.
Bernd Heinrich is a fascinating and gifted writer. More than this he is a keen observer, scientist and an educator able to instill awe and wonder in others. I love all his books and find myself returning to reread Summer World often in the early spring. It reminds me to slow down and reopen my eyes to the miracle of the seasons happening right under my nose. Often without this type of reminder life hurries by unnoticed.
Highly recommended listening for nature lovers or people interested in learning about nature and connecting with the natural world. I also recommend Heinrich's memoir, The Snoring Bird, which is fantastic and my favorite of his books. Not yet available here on Audible--but hopefully soon.
A very insightful book and listening experience based on many years of research and Brown's work with individuals, groups and couples. Listening has the power to facilitate change in the listener's life through altered perspective and new points of view on concepts of vulnerability.
I read all the negative reviews here on Audible about the narration and I am not sure what people are talking about. Maybe my recording has been redone--a newer version??-- but I thought that Karen White did a fine job reading the book. I guess I have heard some really difficult narrators recently-- but I was fine with this one. I suggest just to be sure listen to the sample before buying the book.
I think the information provided in the book far out weighs any issues with the narrator. A difficult subject but definately worth the listen.
