Big waste of my credit. I could not once get into it. Most of the 2 hours was about his personal 'stuff' combined with quotes from Jesus, Dalai Lama, etc... plus a couple of tear-jerking stories for good measure. The so called four pathways are not even mentioned as such in the book. Is almost as if some one gave him a microphone and told the author to just improvised. This is my greatest Audible dissappointment.
Lost Symbol sounds like Dan Brown's version of 24, with the bad guy being the main character, a few sprinkles of Family Feud, repetitious, and incredibly padded in many of the scenes.
Hearing so much about her personal life, and her overly dramatized and tedious description about her imposible to count misfortunes, I can only conclude that this book was writen to make us feel better about ourselfs, by showing us how much worse off we could be.
And about her early childhood, why bring up such horrible events in such detail? To sell books? Is this is the raising of the bar for self help books? This book just depressed me.
It is not often that you hear a fresh new outlook about how "things" work, or how they can be made better. This has done more to relive the stress about my own life than any other so-called self-help audio book I've heard. In my work I have also introduced some of this concepts with a surprisingly positive interest. This is a must read.
I found the stories entertaining, with some interesting visuals and even funny situations. Frankly though, and I don't mean to insult my intelligence, I found the author’s writing style hard to follow, and rather flamboyant at times. The author's use of the English language is quite impressive, but does he have to make a delivery effort to make it difficult to understand?
This audio book is very difficult listen when it shouldn't. The stories are at times interesting, but frankly not too exciting, hence the need to be flamboyant.
