A lot of my friends are into classic literature and—while this is technically a play—listening to it on audio makes it accessible to experience anytime.
The story is amazing. If you haven't read it and you like stories like Paradise Lost, The Divine Comedy, and Homer's epics, then this is for you.
The performance is absolutely stellar. The performers do a fantastic job of bringing it to life.
It's thought provoking, inspiring, insightful, and beautiful.
They really pulled the beauty out of this story.
Mmm, no. It was much more one of those stories that maintains a consistent amount of inspiration inside throughout.
Timothy carries an attitude of 'just do it the smart way, for Pete's sake' that inspires you to live your life more efficiently and effectively.
And, even better, he gives specific steps, actions, examples, and resources for you to achieve that.
It's definitely worth reading.
Basically, everyone who has to make a living in our day—except for the people who are know what he has to say and can practice the principles at will.
Like I said, READ WITH CAUTION.
Ferris says a lot of cool things...but also some things that are down right stupid.
For example, he has a section where he encourages you to live your dreams right now.
Sounds great, right?
In theory, yes...
But then he recommends that if one of your dreams is to drive a Lamborghini, just get in debt!
'You can have the car for just $2000 a month. What are you waiting for?'
Like I said, follow his advice with caution. There are a few trails on his roadmap to success that go over pretty unstable bridges.
Still, that said, read it! It's awesome.
It's just a really great collection of inspiring thoughts and truths, told from the perspective of his Daoism, and presented in a way that basically anyone of any faith can appreciate it.
Rob Inglis does an amazing performance.
It's hard not to compare every character's voice and performance etc. w/those in the Peter Jackson films, but even then Rob Inglis still manages to hold his own against them—and this was decades before the story became as famous as it is now.
The opening sequence where we get to know all the characters is amazing. The characters all have this crazy, normally-frightening relationship to each other based on a psychological condition (I won't say what it is in order not to spoil it), but even still the author makes us fall in love with each character. It's kind of...well...insane!
Reiman put together a wealth of information about body language. It's an enlightening experience. I finished the book feeling much more aware of myself and am excited to see how I can use it to be a better communicator.
She begins almost every comparison between men and women with the words, "Women are better than men..." It would have been better if she'd done a balanced treatment for both genders.
