Light and funny, the emphasis on 'light'. I guess the novella as art from does not allow for much character development. However, the protagonist here was endearing and the story unfolded as an unconventional love story, that had a sweet, unlikely ending. The author showed a lot of compassion for the main character--- this saved the piece from being an enlongated New Yorker fictional oddity.
I enjoyed the interview of Sebastian Junger and his description of the depth and breadth of research into the book.
I was moved by the link to the civil rights and criminal justice issues to the murder of Bessie Goldberg. The descriptions of the Southern home town of Roy Smith gave a good backdrop for his personal history and a glimpse into the post WWII Jim Crow South.
As a skeptic who had never tried self-hypnosis, I bought this audiobook to help me make some major changes in my life. My first listen was superficial and I was tempted to dismiss the suggestions as sounding 'cheesy.' But as a seeker of personal growth, I finally gave the program the attention and focus it deserves. After several weeks, I finally realized that my cravings had been lifted and belief that I could succeed moved into my life and the choices I make.
This is the first time I had been immediately drawn into an audiobook where I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this audiobook--- the story is compelling, the narration lively and the story is so detailed, I got as much or more on the second listen than on the first.
This is the best fromat I have listened to of the teachings of this emerging teacher of enlightenment. There are only the teachings, dialogues have been omitted. Recommended for would-be students and veterans alike.
