I listened to this audio because my friend says I have a hard time letting go of the past. I realized that was true and I partially knew why. After reading this book, I realized exactly why I get that uneasy feeling when I receive an apology after feeling betrayed. The best thing about this book is that it helps you understand what you need to hear or see to forgive a person. I think everyone should read this book solely for the purpose of learning to give a good apology. Apologies are definitely understated and I'm glad Gary and Jennifer wrote such a detailed book about giving and receiving them.
I listened to this book, mainly so I can understand what's behind the anger in the men in my life. A lot of what he said made a sense and I even found myself relating to some of the reasons behind the anger. I would recommend this to any guy who has problems with his anger and doesn't know why. However, I wouldn't recommend it for a guy who hasn't accepted that he has a problem with anger. It may just make him angrier.
I'm a fan of Emily Giffin's work and this one is not an exception. I loved the story, loved the characters, loved the sentiment.
As for the narrator... she was ok. I could not stand how she read Kirby's voice. To me, she made her sound a lot more bitter than I would have imagined. Other than that, she was ok to listen to.
I normally prefer to read books like this because I love to read... I only listened to it because I was on a road trip and wanted something to listen to. Despite the my dislike of the narration, I was still gripping at every detail. I would definitely recommend this book, weather it be audio or text.
I like this meditation. It has one for the day and one for before you to go bed. I prefer the one before bed. It helps me wind down. I'm not sure if I can credit the meditation for this but I have noticed a calmness in my approach with relationships lately. If anything, it's a good way to wind down.
I know this book has been around for a long time and I see why. The stories were logical but I've read a lot on the topic. This is a great book for interpersonal communication.
The only thing was that the narrator's voice is pretty dull. It wasn't terrible but I focus more on the material than the voice so that's why I was able to finish it. If you want to buy this one, I strongly recommend listening to a sample first.
This book is an excellent source for couples. Listening to the different needs was so interesting and eye opening. The stories of different problems with couples were easy to relate to and it was easy to understand the problems within each example. I would recommend this book to couples above all others out there.
