    Would you try another book from Kelly McGonigal and/or the narrator?

    Maybe, if she improved her narration or hired a professional to narrate. She is hard to listen to, although it got better as I went, but I think I just got used to it, and finding most of the info useful helped me get past her delivery.


    What other book might you compare The Neuroscience of Change to and why?

    ?


    What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?

    The pacing, her pauses are too frequent. The tone of her voice is a little off.


    Could you see The Neuroscience of Change being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    ?


    Any additional comments?

    Delivery and organization need work; useful information, techniques, and meditations.

    Respect, trust, and commitment are the cornerstones of a dedicated relationship between a teacher and a student. For a passionate student yearning to learn and understand the essence of a subject, they must demonstrate these traits before a teacher will take them under their wing. In this case, the teacher was Thomas Troward of Cornwall England and the student was Genevieve Behrend. He imparted his personal insight to the one and only pupil who could perpetuate this knowledge and share it with the world.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marguerite Gavin?

    Almost anyone!


    Any additional comments?

    I agree with comments about the speed of the narration, initially it was very annoying, however the information is so powerful I gradually got used to the "speed reading." While the information in this book is out there in so man "Law of Attraction" messages, it is great to get reminded again in a unique way. Actually I have listened to this book many, many times and will continue to; while here and there it is a little confusing, for the most part, the way most of the principles are discussed is, although fast, it is straightforward.

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

    The comments about the narration surprise me; I found it enjoyable to listen to as well as informative. I do prefer to hear most authors narrate for themselves however, yes the narrator's voice is a little "Darth Vadeie" but fun to listen to and I did not notice the issues with the audio others complain about. Maybe I was too absorbed with listening to the information: fascinating and useful.

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    The number of people who become involved with partners who abuse them emotionally and/or who are emotionally abusive themselves is phenomenal, and yet emotional abuse is the least understood form of abuse. In this breakthrough book, Beverly Engel shows us what it is and what to do about it. Whether you suspect you are being emotionally abused, fear that you might be emotionally abusing your partner, or think that both you and your partner are emotionally abusing each other, this book is for you.

    If you could sum up The Emotionally Abusive Relationship: How to Stop Being Abused and How to Stop Abusing in three words, what would they be?

    May have saved my life. I was in despair in my relationship, thanks to this book I came to recognize what was actually going on and my part in it and what I could do to change it. Still don't know if this relationship will work, however it has improved significantly and, I personally, have made significant progress.

    Must read for anyone in a conflicted relationship. You can be in an abusive relationship and not realize it, your and/or your partner may operate with a very hurtful attitude, which results in emotional abuse. Her wisdom can be relationship saving and even life saving!
