1) Coming from an academic back ground myself, I extremely enjoy how someone like Dan Ariely looks at even the simplest incidents in real life. Such as "why we can not tickle our right side of the body with right hand and get the sensation" and offer such absolutely profound reasoning based on research and his work... He's one of the noblest people I have ever seen in this field (now I know why I didn't make it to MIT :P ). I have read his other book "predictably irrational" and that one was even more gratifying and as always contained priceless approach to behavioral psychology and information.
2) Simon Jones does an extraordinary job. Let me put it this way: I am an atheist, but if I listened to the Bible read by Simon, %99 I would convert to orthodox Catholic ! His voice is energetic, he makes such vivid narration that rarely have I seen in any other audio book.
Overall, I am ultimately grateful that I won't leave this body without having experienced and learned this work.
Psychology has always been a field of interest for me. And the information in this book definitely add to what I have learned so far. To me, what is even more important is the fantastic job that Fred Berman does. Who ever is in charge of assigning the narrators to their books, couldn't pick anyone more suitable.
I loved everything about it and would definitely recommend.
Although I am buying the book too as to me it is a sort of reference.
Craig has the voice you crave in an audio book like this, and that really does make a huge difference. The peace/happiness/love and the persuasion (which I'm sure he "is" the master :P ) that hardly would you find elsewhere.
Add to that the very simple yet deep and detailed explanation of the material that makes it easy to grasp and does make sense. Since I was a teenager I didn't believe in religions and God, my dad was an atheist as well, but it took me quite a while until I come to the understanding of spirituality. I have been studying the law of attraction and the related material for a few years, I have a mentor on the topic and after having studied quite a few sources, I only wish I had come to this author a long time ago...but again, as Craig says in all his books, especially this and the "the GOD Enigma", you have to be ready to receive it and when the time is right your prayer is answered.
A must have, along with "the God Enigma".
Craig, if you read this, thank you personally for this profound and awesome work.
Wish you guys peace beyond all understanding.
