Probably not. His books come highly recommended, but I don't want to listen to him narrate another book. I'd rather read it myself.
Not if he narrated it. He doesn't know how to narrate well.
His narration is terrible- he places emphasis on the wrong words and in the wrong parts of sentences and/or paragraphs.
Think outside the box; try stuff- you never know unless you try/ask.
Absolutely- I already have! This book hits home with my passions and makes so much sense to me. It does a great job of describing why root behaviors are important and how they might be targeted to ignite positive change. It describes how that positive change can be used on the very things you've been dying to change for years- everything from losing weight and keeping it off, to changing the world in a profound way by eradicating disease or crime.
I loved how real it was. The author seemed like a regular person, making her very relatable. I appreciated her honesty with her interests, struggles, triumphs, and learnings. She didn't filter unnecessarily- she described things as they were, with a healthy balance of humor, reality, and gratitude.
How the author related to us her realizations of a greater connectedness and cycle with living things, communities, and herself. You could tell she had a healthy respect for what she was doing and how it impacted the world around her.
I have not; this was an excellent first.
Absolutely- I actually plan to do so. This book was excellent- it had compelling points to make; those points were made clearly and concisely; and the author gave excellent examples to associate with his arguments. I've also experienced enough in life to appreciate the simplicity and truth to the author's arguments. If much more of the population would read and heed the tenets in this book, we would be a much healthier, kinder, and happy people.
He had a natural cadence about his narration and read his book to me as if I were in the room with him, listening to a reading. I looked forward to each opportunity to continue listening to this story.
I learned which of the Five Secrets upon which I need to improve, and I implemented the Awareness Card.
I would recommend it only to those that can handle a good amount of technical jargon and presentation. The book had interesting points, but I often got lost and had to rewind due to my brain tuning out the technical speak. Additionally, even though this book was raved about in a trusted book club, I don't understand what all the commotion was about. Maybe most of the information just wasn't new to me.
The concepts were mostly easy to follow, but only because I have a background in neurobiology and psychology. The concepts were too technical for the general population, and for those that are not detail oriented.
No. I don't know what else the author would tell us, and whatever he did try to say would likely be too technical. I.e. information is often less compelling if it's not delivered well. I doubt that the author would deliver well additional information in a follow-up book.
