Way too much hype about how this book is revolutionary and was the first blah, blah, blah. I heard these theories before and felt insulted by the elementary presentation. I got so tired of the "infomercial" interjected in the actual "how to", I had to stop the CD on the first disc. It was very irritating! And, while I do like it when the author performs the preface, Ms. Dweck either needs to refrain from speaking this part or take performance lessons. No offense intended. Her performance is monotone and lackluster. I thought to myself as I was listening to this part, "If she's the narrator, I'm going to ask for my money back". While I was pleased with Marguerite Gavin's performance, the material was grating on my nerves by hopping between the subject matter and congratulating itself for being the first in this field of study.
Taken performance lessons or let someone else perform the preface. Also, take out all of the pumping up of the study. Maybe it would have a better flow.
Perky, clear, pleasant.
Yes. I'll listen to it again and again as I meditate and work on things that require focus. It's not intrusive, but yet is calming.
The whole album is soothing, but not intrusive.
The whole thing.
I bought this to be able to calm my thoughts and be able to focus on my meditation or the task at hand. It accomplishes both. Excellent!
The cohesive story line with fully developed characters. It was easy to listen to and follow. And Craig Wasson's narration made it the best book I've listened to/read in many years.
I hadn't read any comparable books to this one. I'm not generally interested in JFK Assassination conjecture stories.
I would have missed the wonderful voice inflection he used during the narration, the range of emotion he gave to the characters. It really brought them to life. And it was funny how Craig made a couple of the characters (that were harmonically linked) sound like Burt Lancaster and another sound like Jimmy Stewart. Very entertaining!
Entertaining, Adventurous, Funny
The animal sound effects made it so entertaining! It really keeps a child's attention!
She takes on the characters' voices, adding sound effects for that particular animal!
The whole book moved me to tears...of laughter!
Great to listen to with young children or grandchildren.
