In every way he could manage. Over interpreting hamming it up and being frustratingly inaudible for much of the time. I so wanted to listen again and again only to be dissuaded when I remembered my last unsatisfactory encounter with the narrator.
Someone who can tolerate the style of the narration. I felt it was not in keeping with the book's message. This is a thoughtful book and the narrator's style was too perky and stilted.
Too perky for the subject. It distracted from the book's message, I thought.
The underlying message of the book. I just didn't like the narration.
I love books and audiobooks.
I was really looking forward to listening this book, but the narration ruined it for me. Each sentence trailed off and I could not hear the last word or two ... of each sentence. It was very frustrating.
It's essentially an extended vegetation session (in a good way).
There's a hypothetical conversation in the book that takes place between two agents and a divine being. One agent has a bleak outlook on the divinity's creations, the other agent has a sense of wonder about creation. The author then posits that the divine being would find the agent with a sense of wonder more fascinating than the agent with the bleak outlook. That's a very interesting hypothetical scenario, for sure. In truth, however, much of the material within is just fluff.
No, but it was nice to listen to, relaxing.

What a fantastic inspiring book! Start at any chapter and you will learn something new!
This book seems to be chapter after chapter of telling "you" what you do- how we cling to thoughts, how we identify ourselves, etc. It seems like "you" do this and "you" do that. I'm still waiting for any insight on what "you" can do about it. This book may be good for someone who has never had any training or read anything about spirituality or psychology. It is not for anyone who has read Tolle, or any of the other spiritual writers. It does not go beyond "The Power of Now", for example. And the narrator is almost patronizing from my point of view, in his attempt to sound interesting. It sounds more dramatic than necessary. To be honest, I am at chapter 14 and want to put it down, but I will listen to the end, and change this evaluation if I find that the ending somehow surprises me.
The book could have been less narrative about what "you" do and don't do. It lacks skill giving. "You" might read it and relate to a lot of what it says, but it is lacking as compared to deeper thinkers and more insightful writers like Thich Nhat Hanh, Tolle, Krishnamurti...
Too dramatic. Too false. Could have been more natural.
I just wish I had known ahead of time that it was not going to contribute to what I have already learned. It was not the right book for me. Perhaps it is good, again, for someone who has never worked on their spirituality or psychology.
Will most likely return this book.
Absolutely recommended. This is one of the clearest and best written books for the lay person. Excellent in all ways.
I loved Singer's description of the interior voice that haunts us all. I also loved his explanation of how to deal with the annoying voice.
This is a book that can be read by young and old. Something for everybody including all of you who think that you know everything already...
I will have to reserve my opinion, I've listened to the audio three times and I am now reading the book.
Not yet, I can't decide....
This is also reserved.
Oh my gosh! embracing Death...
this book is insightful and practical
i enjoyed the nuggets of truths sprinkled throughout the book as well as the narrartor
i like the part of the book where hard truths have been presented and now it's time to hear their practical application
before finishing the book, "breathe into and just let it go" became a little mantra for me
great book for the seeker of inner peace
The author did a good job in trying to explain the inner workings of the psyche. He made it clear that no matter how different people are, we all go through similar distorted thought patterns and mental inconstancies. He brings a number of interesting ideas around dealing with our psyche and learning to transcend our conscious self to a higher level of awareness . I recommend this book
