What an incredibly well researched book. I have recommended this book to everyone just because EVERYONE should read/listen to it. We all need to know that we can make a choice NOT to support the fast food giants whose business practices contribute little or no benefit to our lives.
The reader is terrific and the content relevant.
The research basis of the book gave me a very objective point of view of how to deal with my willpower challenges. Sleep, exercise, stress, sugar, the company you keep etc. all play into your daily choices and habits. It's important to pay attention, stay in the moment and focus on what is truly important to you.
Great voice, pace.
It made me give up chocolate easily and now cutting back on time wasting activities like the internet.
Yes. I listened to it twice...in a row. The content is of complete value for anyone who seeks to express creatively and the reader is wonderful.
Fantastic content but poorly narrated.
I really enjoy Brene Brown's research but this book would have been enjoyable if not for the reader. She's a painful listen.
Although the content was compelling, with all due respect to the author, his narration made it a hard listen.
The woman who prefaced all the chapters in the book was way better than the narrator.
The narration was so bad I bought a digital copy of the book and will be reading it on my kindle instead.
Each chapter switched readers and the story became a choppy mess. I'd recommend reading the book as this was not an enjoyable listen.
Such an incredible piece of literature! The author is a master storyteller who weaves the lives of all his characters so intricately that you can't help but care for them. I ended up buying the book too and when I could not listen to the audio version, I read the book. It's that good! The only thing was that I was disturbed by a lot of the violence especially the numerous raping of women. I skipped those parts. Between listening to the 40 hour audio book and reading the 973 page book I was completely engaged in the story. Ken Follett is BRILLIANT! I recommend it highly!
Apart from the narration, which leaned toward the upside of boring,
this book was incredible. It's well written, thouroughly organized, understandable, and solidly informative. I highly, highly recommend it. It'll be worth your time-- and may be worth paying full price. It's that good!
I've enjoyed every minute of this audiobook. Highly recommended!
Choose this if you must buy THE self-help bible. It's the SOURCE of all self-improvement programs. Well worth my time and money ten times over.
