Although this book contained some good tips, the author added way too much nonsense and stupid jokes into the text. I think that if I chose a hard copy for reading instead of the audible version I would have put it down by the second page just because of the jokes and ridiculous comparatives used to make the authors point. Many of the audible clues that show a lack of sincerity were surprisingly prevalent in this very book which is quite ironic. But, there is information hidden in between all the nonsense that I found interesting and will attempt to apply.
Had someone else read the book and cut out the uncomfortable "humor" throughout.
Any experienced narrator
Steve Furtick has an amazing ability to take some complicated thought processes and beliefs and make them understandable and he gives you the tools to break down the meaning. He is a great writer and a good preacher and as he grows, he takes you on his path and helps you quiet down enough to hear God's plan for you. No one is perfect and he is the first one to tell you. He can be humble, sometimes too much self deprecating, but that is much better than the alternative. If you teeter on leading a life for Christ but somehow can't seem to find the passion, give him a listen.
Joan in all her glory and crudeness and loved every minute of it. Rest in Peace Diva
I enjoyed this audio book. It was interesting to listen to Mr. O'Brien's struggle with his sobriety as well as how he started. I very good insider view into the battle that goes on in the mind of an addict. A perspective that one may not see on the outside of a person with the same struggles
Highly recommended. Its amazing what happens in those few seconds before we have the time to absorb a high stress situation. Enjoyed this very much
Each character had both good and bad, some more bad than others, some more good than others but the range and how it was used as part of the story was brilliant
Lucian by far was my favorite. The love/hate father/son relationship with Jake
I can't give it away- would be a spoiler
The book made me cry, abuse makes me cry.
John Grisham does not disappoint his readers often. This was one of his bests, one of the most "emotion" filled without the distraction of a man-woman love story.
Recommended for anyone who might want to learn how to deal with difficult people- not only for those with BPD. Provides some understanding and how to pull from your own emotional reserves.
This book was a little too technical for me and maybe it would serve me to get a written version. It does a great job explaining the disorder and its extremes. It's definitely not a "light" read (listen)
A great compilation of patient stories and the thoughts of the doctor as he grew from a young man "faking" it to a seasoned professional. You move along with him on his journey and you can come out the other side, at least a little better of a person than you started as.
could be true?
Although I am not onboard with the full believers, it makes for an interesting story and would make a great movie
Great book for anyone interested in how medical studies are done and the difficulty that researchers encounter when attempting to conduct studies. The subject matter and the similar reactions the patients have is just icing on the cake and but if you are looking for the final word, you won't find it here, just more questions and hoping that more will come.
