This book was recommended to me via a podcast. It really hit a chord with me and has helped me immeasurably when the monkey in my head starts screaming about something. I go back to it again and again when I'm having a hard time letting something go. It's just something that happened; move on.
I hope you get as much out of it as I did.
Well I thought it was a good book, with a lot of insightful information.. but the person who read this book read it at an insanely fast pace! and has a very annoying voice. no presence at all. Sounded like a high pitched robot on ultra fast reading mode to be honest. For a book as deep as this, the author should have read it himself, seriously. He cannot be happy with how this turned out.
I don't know where to begin, I have read several spiritual books but this one pulls everything together. I definitely am going to listen to this book again. Peter Berkrot has an excellent voice, he spoke with authority and soft when he speaking about God, the unknown, the underlying energy that drives everything. Chapter 17, Contemplating Death frighten me due to transitions of love ones, it is funny, I know that I and people I care for are going to die but it is always a shock when it happens. Maybe it was Deepak Chopra who said, make death your friend.
Butterflies are Free to Fly by Stephen Davis reminds me of The Untethered Soul.
When Peter was reading the part of the voice in your head, it made me laugh because it felt so real. I could defintely relate.
I want to incorporate the techniques of this book into my life.
Narrator and overall content of book. Says the same thing over and over. Just did not like this book, and I am normally very open to different points of view.
No. Just this author. The narrator was ok, but would not search books just to find him.
too many to list
I would consider them equally exceptional. The narrator does a remarkable job and creates engagement with his syntax and brightness.
I found it to be immediately engaging and interesting and was able to begin the application of the principles quickly.
The insights are numerous and are quickly absorbed in my daily thought patterns and application to my life.
I have read this book two times and listened to the audio book three times. My husband loved it so much he bought the cd's for each of our four grown sons and sent it to them. We have found this to truly be a game changer and are figuring out a way to bring this to our office staff for a weekly listening session during a staff meeting.
I had the audible and loved it
all of it
This is my first of Peter Berkot's and loved it
It's unfortunate others have been so critical of the narration as it's quite acceptable if you actually listen. I'm so glad I ignored those reviews and took notice of the ones saying how good the actual content was.
Even if you've read a lot of other material on the self, inner peace etc, I personally feel this book has a valuable message and perspective to add to that. I actually like the narrators style. He brings care and emotion to the content. I have no idea what others were expecting. It's all a matter of perspective and expectation I guess.
Extremely worthwhile download.
The clear insightful message and guidance on looking within and learning how to heal your psyche.
He brings emotion and understanding to this material contrary to others opinions. Come at this with an open mind and focus on the content. If you actually listen, the audio drop off others mentioned is just part of his style and if you tune into the content rather than the delivery you shouldn't have any problems.
First and foremost letting go of everything. All those trivial things in everyday life that block you from just getting on and enjoying it.
Wow. I usually listen to books with gaps of time in between because time to listen isn't always available. This book wouldn't be ignored, it haunted me to keep listening. I never got bored, had many Ah-ha moments, and the authors voice was great to listen to. I ended up downloading this to my phone and listened while getting ready for work, and in the car on the way there. This book demanded that I finish it, and nagged me if I left it too long. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, learned a lot, and it will be one of the few I listen to more than once. Obviously I needed this book and it came at the right time.
This audiobook rank @ # 1 thus far.....maybe and just maybe second to A Course in Miracles.
Is not a story is a imaginary vehicle that will take you on an inner voyage to find the elusive YOU...
Mr Berkrot does a great job narrating....but I believe that the content will ring thru no matter whos narrating.
YES!...it will make you Laugh and will make you Cry without disturbing your peace.

Yes, outstanding message. The best presentation of the subject I've ever read or heard.
The narrator would be fine if he understood the concept of speaking directly into the mike! I have no problem with the narrator's style, but there are hundreds of instances where I think he turns away from the mike during the last word to read the next sentence. I literally couldn't hear that last word unless I put the headphone volume so loud it was uncomfortable. It's particularly bad in the first chapters, but by chapter 15, which is simply great, the volume problem stops. I've listened to over 200 audiobooks and never had that happen. I thought that's what an audio engineer does... maybe they skipped that for this book?
This book will change my life!
Re-record this outstanding book.
