The very best of the these types of books
I would, it is a frank and clear discussion of Buddhist practice
Edoardo was terrific as always.
I needed to take some pauses to digest the info.
Great author. Great narrator. Great book.
The author encourages the listener to meditate, without expectation. This is nice because too much ritual and too many rules can become spiritual obstacles.
Maybe the "Art of Power," by Thick Nhat Hanh, in that they are both about how to be in the moment.
I have not, i do not know.
It did not make me laugh or cry. It made me want to meditate more - which may be better than laughing or crying.
Nice, short, clear and useful.
I don't know, don't have the print version. Loved the narration.
D.J. Khyentse was absolutely fabulous. He is clear in presenting his ideas and considers himself a "fanatical Buddhist," and explains that violence has never played a part in propagating Buddhism. But says that Buddhism is more than meditation and vegetarianism. This is nice, since so much of Buddhist doctrine, ideas and thoughts has been westernized for various reasons.
Tom Pile brings gravity to this work. His voice is clear and almost forceful. He helps to convey clarity and passion.
"its all about right view, people!"
the Four Seals:
all things are impairment
all emotions are pain
all phenomena are illusory
enlightenment (nirvana) is beyond concepts
I love this book. This book is designed to clarify what Buddhism is, and not how to practice it. There are no tools on how to meditate, eat or be. It simply explains the four seals and why D.J. Khyentse believes they clearly separate Buddhism from other "religions," (fyi, the author doesn't consider Buddhism a religion.)
D.J. Khyentse is very funny. It makes this book a great listen.
Couldn't say. Maybe a more patient person? Maybe a more inquisitive person? Maybe no one? Maybe someone who gave it a higher rating?
Not Susan's Fault?
I like the way the author approached her research. She revealed some interesting facts and misconceptions about introverts based in scientific research.
The science behind it.
Kathe was good. She, like all narrators, helps you keep your hands free to do other things while listening.
That introverts are more sensitive to environmental stimuli.
This book just popular enough that everyone knows the title and few have read the book. People should actually read it. It is more than just the next hot thing. It is a good book.
simple. clear. quick.
applying minimalism to financial philosophy. nice.
it was good.
Yes, it was short and even shorter that i listened on 1.5 speed.
A nice inexpensive book. I think I will listen again. It a great pep talk.
Beautiful, logical, revolutionary
The way the author reframes the discussion about power is really meaningful.
no scenes. i like the references to meditation.
There is a lot of insight in this book. But the ability to control your mind is indeed the key to being happy, right now.
Great book, awesome author. Well done.
Jen is very funny, honest and vulnerable. It is nice to have a fresh take on this new age self help stuff
I don't know
She is very cleaver and enthusiastic. Not all authors are good narrators, but Jen nailed it.
The part where she says watch how you think and talk about yourself. This is critically important.
Great book, fun listen, well done.
I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about living a life that reflects who they truly are
Hum, there is nothing quite like it. Other business books are not as good because Essentialism is really a practice that the individual develops in order to live a more authentic life.
Come one, y'all know there are no characters in this book. But Greg was a solid narrator.
I will apply the "less but better" mantra to my work and personal life.
This book is great for me because It really is about how to achieve the biggest bang for your efforts by finding the truly valuable things and focusing on them. The idea that 90+ percent of our opportunities, information, interactions are noise, are unimportant, are time wasters is really revolutionary in a world where so many of us are trying to figure out how to manage the deluge of nonsense (without first recognizing it as nonsense). Having this new perspective provides much needed clarity of purpose that should be valuable to any reader.
