teenagers with big dreams
it wasnt the msngr, it was the msg that made this audiobook a tired listen.
basically, the marc ecko brand story is a repeat of blindslided failures & Hail Mary successes over and over again. it could have been told in a more encouraging way as his brand story is amazing, but it felt like he needed to describe every second of his life, which at some point to the listener was just indulgent, much like his own story and approach to the early years of his brand. Less is more would be my suggestion.
though i would not listen to this again, i would recommend parts of it to anyone who would benefit from his story.
yes, already have. triumph over adversity, an amazing story of the human experience at its worst and very best.
my most memorable was, as children, Maya and her brother Bailey laughing uncontrollably during church service when the preacher's false teeth fell out onto the floor.
her narration colored the story so vividly that I could often imagine exactly what these places, faces and things would be and feel like.
I felt the highs and lows of the human experience as Maya may have wanted her audience to. I never cried, but surely did laugh when it was funny. I felt a greater appreciation for Ms. Angelou and the amazing light she was to so many, myself included.
its a long audiobook, but worth the listen as so much of our life's journey takes twists and turns we can only understand in retrospect, this book shared the hope that we are given life's lemons to make amazing lemonade.
he didn't, the book just didn't do anything for me...in fact, i am now less interested in meditation than before the audiobook.
hmmmmm, i couldn't finish it, and don't intend to, as it was just boring for me.
having someone else narrate his book seems lazy and inauthentic in regards to the subject/purity of meditation, that aside, the manner in which it was written was rather dull.
