I have not read the print version, however, the audio edition is perfect from the beginning to the end.
I was previously familiar with the subject matter (Michael Newton, Dr. Weiss, number of other Psychiatrists who delved into this subject), and I am very cautious reading in esoteric subjects, there is not way proving the validity of the authors claims.
they're very good about that. However, 'Unfinished Business' sounds authentic, experienced in the field, and his advice and analysis of the problem issues are psychologically insightful, intuitive and profound indeed.
I liked his narration of the book.
Before and after each session/subject, he gives us such insights into our grave errors that we commit everyday, in pride, anger, greed, not listening (when we ought to), envy, etc. We clearly see the direct consequences that last for ages, which we were not aware of these, and knew nothing about.
No any information can be lost in this world, (law of Physics), all are embedded in our Subconscious, (Carl Jung), and seems when we decide to come back, we bring our Subconscious with us, with all its previous addictions, prejudice, pride, etc. Once we're in Heaven, all we want is people's forgiveness, so we can move foreword.
I did not read the print version.
Throughout the book he references to numerous situations that are substantiated with objective facts, and same facts from different therapists, authors, patients. I read Michael Newton's 3 books some 15 years ago, and respect his approach:- question and answer format, that requires tremendous work; detailed, comprehensive, unbiased, acute observation, with the benefit of doubt at hand.
No. I have not listened to his other performances.
Defending your Life.
Reading subjects like this, life after death, (including bible), requires our outmost Critical Thinking skills, Intuition, inner sense, insights and Mindfulness, keen observational skills; to separate the wheat from the chaff. And in my view, both Michael Newton's and Martini's work stand on solid ground. I give 5 stars. Thank you Richard Martini for your great work, and putting yourself through this ordeal.

The author, of course.
Captivating, from the very beginning to the end.
There is no need to prior medical knowledge: the author explains all the medical terms he uses during his presentation. He covers common medical conditions we get into, or we are familiar with. His presentation is amazing:- detailed, comprehensive, and yet in simple medical terms. I respect him for putting himself in such medical detailed situation to the general public. Physicians don't like to do this kind of job. I already listened twice, driving out of town 300 miles, back and forth. 5 Stars all the way.Today the general public is more familiar to medical conditions, and terms than 40 years ago. And many patients today are as much knowledgeable about their medical conditions as their physicians; hence you will find this audio version fascinating and enlightening.
The author, like other founders of School of Psychiatry: Freud, Jung, Adler etc. they formed their ideas after seeing thousands of patients, and it clearly shows her vast experience in the field. Medical Psychology is such a sensitive area, we simply can't afford listening to abundance of self-claimed, non-enduring psychologists. I clearly saw that some Psychologists have directly stolen ideas from this author, which I didn't know then.
Karen Horney being a woman medical doctor, sees some Freudian matters differently, and rightly so.
Karen Horney is wonderful in this book. Culmination of her 50 years of work in the field.
The narrator is wonderful. She has soft voice, knows the material, and conveys the material convincingly, to the public.
Some narrators, have little idea what the passage they're reading is all about. It shows.
Definitely so! But can't.
This book is for general public, and we all have neurotic tendencies in us. No one is spared from!
Before I downloaded and listened to this program, I was already well familiar with the field of "Critical Thinking". Which helped me taking difficult exams; how to eliminate wrong answers in a multiple choice exams, like GRE, LSAT, etc. "Critical Thinking" is a College course taught in most places now.
I liked the author's ideas and concepts of how to see inside of
claims that people make, that look convincing at first, but upon analysis they all fall short of their claims, like most of TV commercials, etc.
However, I think the author is gone too far with his "Critical Thinking" concepts, questioning everything under the Sun.
Although 99% of UFO claims are highly questionable, but that does not preclude the 1%, which may give validity to UFO existence.
Ditto for Mary's apparitions, etc. Then we have to question God, and prayers, as subjective, wishful thinking, depression, (Freudian concepts).
I still recommend this book for those not familiar with this field, IT IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL in one life.
The various tools he elaborates thinking critically.
An Abridged version, 3 hrs, would be nice.
He does marvelous job on how to look into things, and discover flaws and incongruences.
