I would recommend this book to a friend. It's a great way to spend six hours listening to a really good story, read by a really good voice.
I continue to search for books such as this that give advice to creative people.
The information is presented in very interesting and insightful ways. One example is the explicit language use in relation to personal affairs. This is quite unique, and genius.
On occasion, especially when talking about filming after Clerks, I thought there was a touch of politics in the tone of voice. I don't know if it was intentional or that it showed a sign of discontent with the structure of the art/film industry.
I listened through in one sitting and really enjoyed it. I liked Kevin Smith's voice because it was
The introduction was good. I liked the stories the least.
The most interesting aspect was that the underdog can win. The least interesting was that I could not identify with the underdogs portrayed. They were larger than life, either doctors, or severely neglected, victims.
It was discouraging. Examples were too dramatic.
I was the wrong reader for this book. I was expecting more specific ideas. The right reader would probably enjoy this book a lot.
Practical explanations for meditation and enlightenment are abundant.
I liked the use of science and math to explain enlightenment.
The narrator's voice conveyed understanding of the topic and concern for the reader.
The declaration of enlightenment.
At this point in my career this is the best explanation of enlightenment. A beautiful work that belongs in my library.
Less preaching and more enlightening.
I liked the cover and the title.
I did rush into getting this book. Unfortunately, I was looking for something much more advanced. This may be helpful to a middle school maturity level.
I would have loved to hear more about general non-fiction writing.
The book was a helpful, memoir writing book. It is not what I was looking for. My overall rating is a 3, because I misunderstood it's advertised content.
I would add more specific meditation instruction.
His tone of voice and style is very inspirational and motivational.
Yes and no.
There was plenty of wonderful telling of how important transcendental meditation is. I believe it, I would have liked less selling of meditation centers and more information about the meditation process itself.
I would listen to parts of it. There were some great messages.
The parts about not becoming overly engrossed communing with God.
The messages about solitude and silence. That silence is something that is everywhere although it may be drowned out by other noises.
The Jesus references were very difficult to understand.
The conclusion was disappointing. I would have it rely less on theology.
The ending was a let down. The central message was about knowing your self. The author offered great guidance about training thoughts, up until the last chapter. Suddenly, armed with my toolbox, anticipating a wild conclusion, I was left slightly disappointed, about the message...just have faith.
fatherly, confident, assertive
Yes. I was left inspired to practice taking experiences in and letting them go.
There ware many helpful lessons about understanding internal energy. Michael Singer explains that if you hold on to experiences, wether good or bad, they create blockage.I am currently going to practice taking things in and then letting them go so that I could always be ready for the next experience.
The detailed explanation of how the brain is structured compared to the clenched hand.
The narrator goes into great detail about the thinking process. This detail enabled me to apply what I was listening to.
This book made me feel enormous joy that there were people like Dr. Siegel in the world.
I am looking forward to listening to this book again. I wish that this book's subject was mandatory teaching in all schools.
The narrator, his tone and voice were very easy to understand.
Yes, this book made me search.
I'd like to share this quote from the book, "...there is no identity separate from the mind that perceives it."
Yes, in order to get a perspective from other, "people of color".
Listening to the advice, "I'm outta here" in relation to bad situations.
I liked the narrators encouraging tone of voice.
I found the topics to be a bit advanced and I would have benefited from more detailed explanations.
