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.
At first I wasn't sure I liked this book at all. In fact the first couple of chapters made me angry. But then I settled in to the cadence of the reader's voice and listened, really listened to what he was saying. I ended up loving the book. In fact, I think for the first time I understand the meaning of "The Tao of Pooh."
I am glad I listened to the entire thing, as I thought there was q lot of thought provoking ideas and concepts to incorporate into my life.
Having said that, being told what to think or do is always a harder pill to swallow than if the presentation was of another person.
Here and now
I liked the book, but since I've read so many of these I felt like it fell in the self help category rather than spiritual awaking. It was lacking the true essence of awakening. Books like "the power of now" or "the new earth" teach it different. They teach it through mindlessness. I would give this book to someone who didn't believe they had voices in their head. This book is really good at teaching you to realize that, but I felt at the end it was lacking or maybe that's the best thing about it, makes people want to know more.
His tone and his whole involvement in the material. I thought the author was reading it. His voice was soothing and entertaining at the same time. I'd like to listen to other books he narrated.
I love love this book. Amazing. I've read a lot of self-help books, but this one was delivered in such an easy way to understand. It MAKES SENSE. I've already ask myself "Who am I? Who is the one who is bothered?" It helps you to take a step back and be more aware of your incessant thoughts.
Absolutely!!! This book answers so many questions about personal freedom, LIBERATION IN A CLEAR, SIMPLE, why-did-I-not-realize-it-before way!!! Thanks, Michael for figuring it out for me.
I am only halfway listening to this book but I love the analogy about the thorn, how we so protect our endless pain and drama and cling so tightly to them instead of just letting go and stopping the madness within. Brilliant.
I loved it when he said if you want to quit smoking, stop putting cigarettes in your mouth. Personally, I want to lose 5 lbs. so I'll quit shoving food in my mouth. Funny but very, very true!!!
Yes, were it not for so many distractions and things to do. But I plan to listen to it over and over again.
This book should be spread like the Gospel. As the other reviewer wrote, in my case, Mr. Singer is just as great as my other favorites: Ram Dass, Don Miguel Ruiz, Eckhart Tolle and Deepak.
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.
Not sure why I have this book. I don't remember where I heard about it or when I ordered it but I'm SO glad I just listened to it. I'm going to listen again & order the print version it spoke to me that much. Thank You Universe for the gift on my audible today. Perfect timing of course.
