I would recommend this audiobook to anyone who wants to know what more about the phenomenon of adults coloring. This audiobook provides a basic overview of why adults have taken to coloring. Some start coloring to reduce stress levels while others find it challenges their brain. Still others have used coloring as a way to be part of a community of people enjoying the same activity together.
I think that the part I found most interesting was learning about all the different medias and methods available, both to the coloring novice and to the expert.
Audiobooks are unique in the fact that our listener opinion of narrators is very much a personal preference. On the one hand, to much inflection in the voice of the narrator can be quite annoying, while too little makes the reader sound mechanical (several books downloaded from Librivox come to mind). In the case of this audiobook, the narrator was a little to mechanical for my taste. In small doses, this style was acceptable, but if this had been an 8 hour book, I might have not have had the same opinion.
I had been wondering whether I would find this activity a potential source of stress relief. After hearing this book, I have decided to buy a basic set of pencils and field test the idea for myself.
Disclaimer. I received this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review of the product.
The book was very informative. It had alot of useful information. it talked about what to color with , technics to use . It stated that coloring is helpful not only to improve focus but to make one feel better about themselves. It also said your coloring does not have to be perfect as long as you enjoy it and are happy with the finished product. This book was given to me at a discount or free.
A Fascinating book
I don't know of another book that compares to this one.
The insight I would use from this book is how to use my different coloring utinsels properly when I color.
I'm a very fast reader and it's odd to listen to a book at someone else's pace. I would like to have the option to speed that up.
I don't know that there are any particular moments in the book that are moving, however, I found it fascinating to hear why coloring is soothing for adults, and also to learn of multiple methods to be used for coloring. It actually made sense when he described the different techniques and what they were used for.
He has a very pleasant voice, not at all painful to listen to. Except for wishing I could make it a little faster, he was enjoyable to listen to.
When I was in college, we had a dept. that always had coloring sheets out, and they were for working through stress, especially due to testing. I never understood why, but they worked extremely well and I enjoyed the activity. It was very interesting to hear how these things have an effect, and what it does for your brain.
I appreciate the sellers generosity and in the future will need to read the fine print better before getting an audible.com book.
I've never left a review at audible.com before so I'm grateful for the opportunity. I don't use audible.com but I received this audio book at a discount in exchange for my honest review. I'm not sure how to actually enjoy the book, but I do need to leave a review.
