This book is unreal! The book will literally change your life, you'll be rethinking things that you were so sure about, you'll be looking at things from a different angle. My only complaint is that Marianne talks very low and it was very hard to understand her.
Recently retired. Mainly interested in self-development in the final third of life.
This is an excellent outline of the author's personal response. Everyone needs to hear it at some stage of their lives. The reader's delivery is excellent at 0.5 speed!!! Seriously - just do it!
The audio books I get tend to be either 1) scifi or 2) things for my husband and me to listen to on long road trips--humor or history
I'm not sure how I would have felt about this book if I had encountered it 5 years ago, but between then and now, I have worked with a personal coach and started my own personal growth journey. The journey has moved forward in an on-again, off-again fashion (mostly off!) but I know I have changed and grown in a positive direction. It all started when working with my coach, when with her prodding, I experienced a breakthrough insight. I have called that moment a miracle because within days, my relationship with my husband made a 180 degree turn from negative to positive. And it is still on that positive trend now, five years later.
Listening to “A Return to Love,” I heard echoes of many of the things my coach was trying to tell me back then, but which I was not ready to hear. Now, it seems I am ready and many, many things in this book sparked recognition and understanding for me.
This book also created another miracle in my life. While reading it, I was suddenly moved to buy a plane ticket to visit a close friend. Without going into the details, I firmly believe that had I not made that impromptu visit, she would be dead right now. Not only that, but the concepts in the book are helping me know how to react to her situation in a healthy way that hopefully will contribute to her ability to heal herself.
This book is not for everyone, but if you have begun to explore the concept that it is our thoughts that mold our own reality, then you may be ready for “A Return to Love.”
[I listened to this as an audio book read by the author. She reads very well and also very quickly, so I slowed the speed down a bit. Also, I didn’t realize it when I bought it, but I listened to an abridged version. This is a great way to be introduced to this topic, and I would recommend the abridged version if you are hesitating. If you are as inspired by this short version as I have been, the full version awaits!]
Eye opening, up lifting, reassuring, warm, life changing, hopeful, inspiring and a blessing. thank you.
