It seems so interesting that such a simple idea (4 questions) could be so powerful. I really enjoyed the book and thought the audio program would be nice to have for the drive to work. I thought the audio program was going to be the author reading the book, but it was wonderful that it was people speaking live as Katie takes them through the 4 questions. Don't let this simple idea (4 questions) stop you from taking in this material...."Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." — Albert Einstein
The book is so hyped up after listening and listening and waiting for something insightful and interesting this book left me wanting. What a total waste of money and time.
He is an awesome narrator, to bad it was on such a worthless book.
Borden, Irritation, Annoyance.
I like Joel's "Everyday A Friday" but have to say this book is nothing new. If you have read any motivation series you will have it covered. He sites many examples that are common and just about every motivational speaker uses. I returned it.
"Every C Level exec read this book" Well maybe a read is beter a listen is dry as toast.
I have many of Pema's books and audio books, even bought some from Sounds True site.
This audio is nothing more than a sound bite from a talk from Pema. It is nothing more then Pema talking about how to sit.
This does not "sound true" to me, taking bits and pieces of a talk and selling it. Get real.
Stop allowing sound true to chop up talks in this manner.
Buy A Chakra Meditation by Glenn Harrold. He has a long version 45 minutes and a shorter 25 minute version. The audio is very good, great sound, and speaks at a tone that is very clear.
His voice is very jarring, this does not work when you are trying to meditate.
Also instead of spending some money on special effects on this audio, such as an Echo he says... "now, now, now, now..." like faking a echo sound. IT IS hilarious! But again laughing at this audio is not helping for meditation either.
No, Jon's narration is robotic. If you want to sleep then listen to this book. Frankly it was so much so I could gained very little from this book. When I was able to keep my attention on the robotic voice I did have some insight. I think the book is overall good, but really get another person to read it and re-publish the audio book.
Have another person narrate the book. Jon reads with no emotion, no emphasis any word or idea. I have tried to listen to this book many times. The last time was a flight and I fell into a deep sleep.
Speaks very mono-tone.
I would not purchase any audible book that Jon narrates.
I have read many books on meditation. I have been a fan of Tolle for a very long time, but I have to say this book by Brach is far more reaching and more practical than any book I have read by Tolle. Tolle I have seemed to listen to countless times, but found Radical Acceptance to provide clearer direction on what action to take day by day. She gives very clear examples of how to practice mindfulness, meditation, and work through some emotional issues.
Her reading is wonderful, to the point, read with emotion. She reads this book as if she was the author. Excellent!
My nephew told me he enjoyed the written book. So I thought I would try it for the ride to work. I like Sci-Fi but have to say this book is so badly written with terrible characters that it is so bad that it should be a -1 on the rating scale. I should have returned it, just TERRIBLE!
I have to say I like the play-like narration but the story is so bad I could not finish it.
Get to the point! You get the feeling he had to put filler and more filler!
While listening I thought geez is he really still talking about the same thing? I started fast forwarding then finally I gave up, I could not take it anymore.
