I once broke up with a girl friend because she voted for this guy. I'm not his biggest fan but what I believe is that he was doing the best he could given his skill set. It's surprisingly religious. Not my cup of tea. Perhaps I should have expected that... I believe he believes what he wrote. I don't necessarily believe that it's as simple as he describes. He's very black and white. That said, he faults himself in situations in which he deserves it and he's candid about a lot of events that allowed even me, a hater, to find him very human and almost endearing. Interesting book no matter your views. I recommend it.
The guy who reads this book, with his psycho-pathological over-enunciation of every word, is the most distracting, horrifying thing that could happen to an otherwise interesting book. How anyone could enjoy this is beyond me. I would honestly rather listen to a cute-voiced 5 year old read this than this clown. He's just soooooo terrible. Marcus, for the love of god, have it re-recorded by a normal person.
DIFFERENT READER!!!!!! Without the fake over-exaggerated accent. I can BARELY listen. I've heard amazing things about this book, which is the only reason I even trying to push through this nightmare reader.
I will never buy any other book in which BOZO the psycho-pathological over-enunciator reads. It's just so unbelievably bad.
This book is absolutely amazing. Remove fear from your life and live in the fullest manner possible. Not exactly a how to guide for removing all of this excess fear but the examples are incredible in typical Robert Greene fashion.
I almost didn't buy this yesterday because of the scathing reviews of Dr. Hawkins' reading...
I'm glad I followed my gut on this one and purchased it. I listen to my audiobooks on my iPhone at triple speed with Audible's app. I can consume voraciously this way. For this book, I had to slow it down to 2x speed not because of Dr. Hawkins' reading but because the information is so dense. But at three times and twice the speed I had no trouble understanding him. I'm just sensing a lot of snobbery in the other reviews.
The information is mind blowing. It's all I can think about and I'm only on Chapter 3. Good luck!
