Having listened to The Breadwinner & Parvena's Journey, we had to listen to Mud City and we were not disappointed. The story was engaging and was easy to imagine in our mind's eye. The narrator did an excellent job in differentiating the characters and her speech was clear and distinct.
I had only really begun the book and already I was cheering out loud! "Yes Yes I agree!"
I have always sought ways to turn obstacles upside down and am so appreciative that this book gives insights and stories of others doing the same. Inspires me to continue moving forward despite what obstruction may appear!
What an exceptional book describing the worldwide efforts of scientists! The science behind how our thoughts impact and affect our lives blew my mind. If you have read any other books on the law of attraction and felt a disconnection to the workings and power of the mind, this is a must listen.
As a rule I listen to the preview of any book before purchasing and unfortunately some of the value of the content of the book may have been lost to me, because I was disconnected to Brian Tracy's narration.
There were a couple places where I bookmarked, it was a quick listen and I expected to listen in one sitting, however my reluctance made this a very loooong listen.
For those who need grassroot foundation tactics to get organized this would be a good place to start.
In the first moments of the book when it talked about sending teens to a survival camp I was hooked and was more focussed on learning where this camp is and how can I send my own teen there. This was fleeting at best. As with all books designed to help oneself, I was quickly reminded that Peace starts within not with others with whom we do not have Peace with.
I found myself nodding in agreement throughout most of the book as the narrative told the story of where "I" within the conflict which holds out Peace in my world. I found myself connecting to the characters, not just as parents, but as people.
The narrator did an exceptional job in conveying the individuals and my attention was held rapt.
The only thing I wished for was a .pdf download of the diagrams that they spoke about in the book. I will be buying either the actual book or downloading the kindle version in hopes of seeing those diagrams whilst listening again to the book.
I feel that this will be a book to serve as a foundation for me and invite anyone to invest in absorbing its contents.
Best book I've listened too back to back! Love the delivery of the content. Love the clear, concise content. Whether you are new to self helpery or a veteran! Brilliant, Sassy & BADASS!!!
Danielle's voice is one that engaged me to listen intently and truly hear her, and listen to her words. Her format in order to start your fire is one that is rooted in your soul, and she invites you to Feel, and stoke your inner fire.
I think this book is for anyone who is looking to feel differently about their lives, their contributions to the world and is relevant in all ways, not just for building a business.
I value and appreciate her personal collection of teachers in books and in person. She depicts a well read, curious about life and openness that grants this book a more personal feel.
If you are one of the squillions who have watched Brene Brown on TedTalks or Oprah's Super Soul Sunday you may empathize with my review. I missed hearing the book narrated by Brene Brown herself. Lauren Fortgang's effort was not without merit, however after having been engaged by watching Brene then buying the books I missed her delivery of her own words.
The book itself was worth the investment, I've listened twice since purchasing.
I downloaded the first chapter for free and decided to read it on my Kindle.
Since I am currently living as an expat in Western Europe I definitely identified with the character, the moving overseas, the starting anew. I enjoyed the details on their trips to different cities, which I have also visited so again made a connection.
The story itself was alright, at times difficult to follow between present tense and flashing back.
I was really looking forward to this book, unfortunately my expectations were not met. There were certainly some body language myths which he dispelled, and I did learn of a couple body language keys that I didn't know.
Honestly it was just ok, I found myself spacing out then coming back and rather than rewind to see what I missed just pushed through to the end.
As suggested in the audio book, my intention was to take on the challenges offered before listening further. However the content was so interesting I found myself drawn in...hence lack of will power.
However, I appreciated the information on studies performed, tasks suggested and results tabulated on willpower.
I appreciated the personal content from his experience in the classroom teaching this as a course.
I have a list of challenges that I will be applying some refreshed willpower motivators to.
Well worth the time and credit invested.
