I love the information so much that I have actually put myself through the horror of listening to the stinking AWFUL narration. Want to poke yourself in the eye boring reading by the author. Think of the absolute worst lecturer you ever lived through and you will understand. Truly a regrettable mistake that this life changing information is being audibly conveyed so poorly.
the emotional scale
buy and read the hard copy of the book myself
The information is remarkable and this audio book should be re-recorded by a professional!
The whole time I was listening I was so annoyed by his voice. Dr. Hawkins is monotone and sounds like he smoked 2 packs a day for the last 30 years. He also sounded like he had a few martinies while he read.
Come on Hawkins get a narrator, that's what there good at. You are brilliant at what you do but please have a professional narrator read your book. I couldn't get past chapter 3.
The most memorable part is his monotone voice
Sure, Lurch from the Adams Family
Great book, bad narration. Hire a professional narrator.
The story is anti scientific, based on unproven assumptions, false expectations. This is a sort of mythology sold as popular science that should belong to the fantasy list of books. Nothing could make me grant more than 1 star, provided that zero is not an option.
This is not science. This shall stay in the same list with The Secret and the horoscope.
He is a terrible narrator. Only the content of the book is worse than the narrator
I am sorry I bought this book. I shall pay more attention before of buying a book
Not sure-it is a fascinating topic and really deserves to be part of a person's library. I cannot believe that the narration cannot be improved.
The narrator sounded like he was under a pool of scotch.
This is truly the only book with this information and it would be great to listen to it with another narrator.
Yes. I like his lectures, but I found this book incredibly dry and unlistenable.
I couldn't make it to the end
I suspect this may have been Dr. Hawkins first attempt at narrating? It sounded like a first grade reader being forced to read in front of his class. Halting and stiff.
Dr Hawkins, his use of kinesiology, interpretation of the non linear vs the linear, duality vs non duality and the map of consciousness over which he calibrates almost anything offers a paradigm shift and lays out groundwork in how to do the inner spiritual work and is a true Guru in all that he selflessly explains and outlines in this foundational book for all the rest of his work which dawns a new level of consciousness for an unbiased seeker of truth.
I'm going to study all his work, or at least as much as I can.
The author has a great sense of humor and points out all that is relevant outlining the many facets of knowledge, causality, ego consciousness and how to transcend it, and an awareness of God through the lens of his work
Thank you Dr Hawkins, and may God bless you, I wish I could have met Dr Hawkins, though he outlines that the work is more important and did not give much relevance to his own self or importance any more than that which would allow him to do his work.
The author's voice didn't bother me that much as it did other reviewers. I thought the material was well presented, not to overly complicated or new-agey. There is a lot of good insight contained within this book that can serve as a guide post towards elevating ones consciousness. I will likely listen to this book every so often, as I'm sure that I'll absorb more and different lessons each time around.
Yes, I am, most every day. The why is there is a lot to get and I get something every time.
His want for you to understand life better. That power is available and God wants me to be aware and make choices with that awareness.
While for one that I have a brain and I can watch it and alter choices to be happy and walking in the Power that God has for us all.
For me it is much easier to listen to this type of information as though at a lecture than trying to read it.
This has to be a topic you are interested in for it to be enjoyable and keep your attention. For me - it was quite fascinating and the tone of the author's voice and reading pace was not relevant.
Yes, most definitely. While reading the other reviews, there was decidedly negative sense as to the author performing the read. While his voice is a little difficult to become accustomed to, the material is so valuable and the lessons it teaches easily allows one to rise above and appreciate what others seem to have missed.
Learning about the global calibration and the general rise in planetary consciousness.
Not too many actual characters
Not yet finished, so I'm digging it all thus far.
