    For many years, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s fans have wondered when he would write a memoir. Well, Wayne has finally done just that! However, he has written it in a way that only he can - with a remarkable take-home message for his longtime followers and new readers alike - and the result is an exciting new twist on the old format. Rather than a plain old memoir, Wayne has gathered together quantum-moment recollections.

    Would you consider the audio edition of I Can See Clearly Now to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print edition. I have a 2 year old and a teenager and full-time work etc. It's difficult to take the time to read print editions--although I would consider buying it.


    Have you listened to any of Wayne W. Dyer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, it's on par. I loved the fact that it wasn't abridged! He has a fantastically soothing voice so I enjoy him doing his own audiobooks unlike some well known authors/teachers that don't narrate their own books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it's too long, but I listened to it for prolonged periods at a time.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed his writing style. At first I was thrown off with how he'd talk about his childhood and then about him in his 20s, and then back to a teen. But it really reinforced my understanding and the relevancy of his experiences. He really did weave a tapestry of his life. I highly recommend this audiobook!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I don't know. He ranted and raved and was very annoying in the abridged version. I don't remember the actual audio CD (unabridged) version being like this from years ago. The book should be offered in the unabridged version NOT abridged. It terrible. All t his book was was him giving his opinions and talking down to the reader. He didn't offer many helpful tips or recommendations. There were some good nuggets and I think the premise behind what he's saying is great--the delivery made it really hard to listen. I didn't finish the book and removed it from my phone. I'd send it back if I could.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not from Mr. Ramsey. Between he and Suze Orman, she wins HANDS DOWN!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dave Ramsey?

    Suze Orman, but the material/content is better.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Total Money Makeover?

    Add actual advice, recommendations. NOT talking down to people like a bad infomercial.


    Any additional comments?

    I think Dave Ramsey is a good financial expert, but this audiobook was not a good example of that. I wish I could've finished it, but I refused to use my precious time driving home listening to him being angry.
