Felt too short and brief. Every topic is covered very briefly in it. Leaves you hungry for more. Never gets deep enough into anything...
This is an Abridged version, and is obviously so. It seems to have been chopped very short. It seems that Marianne Williamson has attempted to fit as many words as she could into the allotted time, and they are quality words, but the result is that she had to read it very fast, which is at odds with the material covered. It almost sounds as if it has been speeded up! The material would suit a slower presentation. Marianne Williamson's delivery and voice is otherwise very listenable to.
One or two sittings, yes.
Marianne's style will suit some people, probably those people in a real hurry. The content of the book is great, but the frieght train pace quickly makes one a little nauseous.
If you've been looking for answers on
a spiritual path, start here. I'm spiritual but not religious and this spoke to me. If you've heard the famous quote about not playing small and getting the abundance you deserve, this is the book that came from and it's great to hear it in the author's own voice with context. A quick read and leaves you feeling hopeful about life.
This book was recommended by a dear friend and mentor. It was hard to listen to at first because of all that I was going through, but it was one of the voices and words that brought me back to life. I am grateful.
I needed this book. I tried to commit suicide a couple of weeks ago not because I wanted to die but because I wanted the pain to go away. Listening to this book gave me insight and understanding of myself and I am so thankful to God that He brought me to Audible to listen to this book. Thank you Marianne!! May God continue his blessings upon you!
This is one of those books you get something different out of every time you listen. Marianne's calm voice and profound message will leave you inspired and connected to all.
Yes I'm going to listen to it again and again to let her wisdom really sink in.
"The most enlightened prayer isn't, God send me someone wonderful, but dear God, make me into someone wonderful."
I highly recommend it! She makes A Course in Miracles more accessible and understandable.
The fact that this book is actually read by Marianne Williamson makes it worth listening to. I actually bought this so that my sister could listen to it, but I listened to it after reading the paperback.
The message is what is at the heart of this book, that it's all about being open to give love and to receive love. It's been around for a long time for a very good reason.
I wouldn't have experienced the amazing amount of editing that they did. What I'm saying is that the only thing that could have made it better (besides having been recorded in this millennium) is if it were unabridged. There's so much great stuff edited out, too much stuff I would even say.
This book shot straight to the top of my favorite books list. I continue to re-listen to the audio version, but, more than most books, reading it slowly is a richer experience for me.
