I really enjoyed and learned from this book. The narrator is excellent. I will be listening to this again. I may even have to buy this one in print, and I will look at Singer's other books.
This was so good, I have to listen to it again....I was ready and the Teacher came.....because of this book, I now face life in the now and as close to center as I am able to maintain....I am so blessed...
In the name of unbiased knowledge, and of purposeful rationality and of audio books.
The book is very little more than a sea of words through which the author tries to communicate what is obviously good insights and subjects that he understands well.
That's a good topic, clearly familiar to the author. However, what he says to convey it seems like a torrent of poor ideas. Most if not all of the 'enlightenment' is based on uncanny allegories and analogies (unnecessarily focused on). A quarter of this book's size would have sufficed if the author cared about being terse.
I would have failed to finish listening if I hadn't promised myself otherwise.
Simple: try to care about being terse. There is no need to go to the extreme in making the topic super-accessible to readers... It is just too easy to get lost in his overly elaborate details/clarifications...
The performance was just right, in line with the content/spirit of the book.
Yes, though not enough.
It's certain that the author knows what he wrote about, and his apparent objective was more than just writing a book. I also like how eclectic his sources of wisdom are.
I wouldn't recommend this book, not to those who pursue the content advertised by the title. But those who want 'just' something to read can find it suitable. All I remember is 'letting go...', and that's too little for the hours spent listening.
Loved it.It relates to every day,real life.
helped me deal with a workplace problem I had for 3 consecutive painful months. I thought the LORD sent this book to me.
Thank you Opera,super soul Sunday.
Someone purchases the paper version for me as a gift, and I purchased the Audible version because I couldn't make it through some of the more pithy concepts on my own...I needed a nudge.
