USA, listener since 2005
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.
I love listening to Jack Kornfield and this collection of dharma talks. This isn't a book that I start and power through quickly but one I think needs to be taken in small sittings over time. There is a ton of great information with thought provoking and life changing concepts presented here. However, time needs to be taken to process these ideas and ponder the deeper meaning. I recommend this recording to anyone interested in shifting their point of view and seeing things in a different light. I also find that each time I listen I hear something I had not noticed before. Definitely a book I return to frequently.
