    For anyone struggling to break the cycle of addiction comes the groundbreaking approach from The Chopra Center, the world-renowned facility that has successfully helped thousands of people change their lives for the better. Chopra Center cofounder and medical director David Simon, M.D., and best-selling author and personal-growth expert Deepak Chopra outline their revolutionary approach - one that defies outmoded beliefs about recovery, particularly that people 'are' their addictions or that they are powerless to control them.

    What disappointed you about Freedom from Addiction?

    I was shocked when the reader's voice began--nasal, too loud, awkwardly read. The material was clearly powerful, but there was no way I could listen to that for more than a few minutes. I feel so ripped off--honestly, couldn't someone have advised them? Really--it's the quality of the recording that will help make this medium work; I don't know whose voice that was


    Would you be willing to try another book from David Simon and Deepak Chopra ? Why or why not?

    Not if the same voice is on it as on the start of this one--was that David Simon or Alfred Gingold?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alfred Gingold’s performances?

    Possibly...but I don't know. I've heard him elsewhere--was that him or David Simon at the start of the recording?


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    YES--the text...which I'm now going to have to go buy to read after wasting my credit on this here.


    Any additional comments?

    DISAPPOINTED...wish I'd never bought it here. What poor quality control.

    and fyi, I am a voice and performance teacher and do voice overs myself. I don't expect my students to sound like pros, but when I'm paying for something that is internationally advertised, I expect quality. If it wasn't the voice, then it was audible's media. Either way, a big disappointment.
