This book kept your attention the whole way through. Narration was by the author herself. I couldn't imagine anyone else narrating her life story. It is a sad read but at the same time you can't help but realize her incredible fight to change her pathology. You walk away from this read feeling grateful for your life with small problems.
Loved it. Listened to it twice, back to back because the story, the insight, all of it was so comforting. I will probably listen to it again soon. I was sad when it was over!
Knowing that this was her personal journey was inspiring!
We are all human and are not immune to the tests and trials of this world. However, by learning who we are, acknowledging where we are and taking corrective action we can overcome.
I would listen to this book again. Raw, real and so very informative, inspiring and motivating. I could identify with various facets of Ms. Vanzant's experiences through generations. This book allowed me to hear her story while identifying my own pathologies and planning on how to address them at the same time. My heart was simultaneously heavy and light for the duration of this book.
I enjoyed the author's story telling abilities.
Pathologies - as related to the nonmedical, but rather the spirit and familial.
I loved that not only was this the story of her own life lessons but that it was imbedded with spiritual wisdom and practical life advice that I can apply to my own life's journey. I never tire of her teachings and appreciate learning some of her history to how she became such a powerful and wise woman.
I love that she narrates her own books - you can feel that every word she speaks is important.
Highly recommend this book to persons who are struggling with speaking up for themselves or are attempting to heal from past and current hurts.
The most memorable moment is when she heard the names of her previous ancestors.
When her Grand daughter walked up the steps to her dad's house.
what I liked best was that no matter what came her way, it might have knocked her out but it was only for a little while and then she got back up again
My favorite character of course was Iyanla, because of how she over came her obstacles in her life.
I have listen to Iyanla's other books before, but this one I think was the best.
I will definitely listen to Peace from broken pieces again. Iyanla's story wasn't an easy one to share, but she told her story with warmth and strength.
I loved listening to her voice. She was clear and easy to connect with.
Always tell the truth. Be honest with myself and take responsibility and accountability fir myself, my role and purpose in this life.
I could relate
I have not listened to any of her other performances however I will now.
