    "Love love LOVED it!"
    What made the experience of listening to Clarity the most enjoyable?

    Listened with a beginners mind and soaked up some familiar concepts in a new, beautifully simple, clear way.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Clarity?

    Being reminded that I am whole, that I have the whole world inside of me.


    What does Jamie Smart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jamie uses his voice artfully.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A deeper, clearer understanding of some ideas I had previously wrestled with. While listening to clarity and ever since I have been having the most magical experiences every day.I feel calm and happy and playful.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a joy. Also really enjoying watching the video examples of using Clarity in a coaching environment. Jamie rocks.

    Story
    "one of the best books you will ever read."

    The basic premise of this book, is that we live in an inside/out word, we are constantly felling our thinking, but having an illusion that we are feeling the world and our circumstances.
    If we have a better understanding of how our feeling/thinking system really work, we are free from the illusion, and the natural consequence is that our clarity of mind, and sense of well being arises .

    Clarity of mind is the single moust significant variable behind human well being and the first step needed for any good endeavor.

    Buy these book only if you what to be happier, get better results and what to experience grater clarity in your life.

    "we are successful because we are happy, we are not happy because we are successful"RH

    "I highly recommend this book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book came recommended to me, I passed it onto my husband, and he says it is changing his life. It is read in a very hypnotic slow way, by an NLP practitioner, don't let that put you off. The concept is simple, but and almighty powerful.


    What other book might you compare Clarity to and why?

    Loving what is by Byron Katie

    Story
    "Emperor's New Clothes."

    If you're looking for a 'how to' style self-help or better-business guide - this isn't it - much as it appears to be marketed that way.

    There are no steps provided to achieve 'clarity' - and in fact - one of the stand-out passages, referring to a dog chasing its tail - is there to point out that you'll either 'get it', or you won't. That being given the solution to your problems isn't always enough - having your own revelation may take more, less or different exploration.

    Finding the key that you've always been looking for isn't necessarily the goal - you might not have needed the key at all. Or you probably already had it. Or the door was unlocked anyway. Imagine the door gone and it was never there.

    There's some great passages and some very interesting concepts to ruminate upon - so I'm not about to tell you not to listen to this book - however - for me, there were some frustrations:

    At the end of almost all chapters there is a 'reflection point' where you are encouraged to head to a website and discuss with fellow readers the points raised within the chapter. If indeed you're on the tube - or at the gym etc you probably aren't online - even if you are - you may not want to break from the book all the time to keep going to a website... This may suit you - but it didn't me, and became more and more frustrating as the book went on. There is more content and 'rewards' if you do go to the website - but you need to sign in to facebook to comment... and if you don't comment - you don't get the extra content...

    So - not for everyone.

    Jamie Smart's delivery is relaxed to the point of being soporific - not a bad thing if you're listening to relax and reflect, but if you have a particular place or time that you listen to audiobooks - you might find - as I did, that you're not in the right mood. I can imagine it helping a stressful train journey, but not helping say, a gym session.

    So I hesitate to recommend it - and wish there was an edited version without all the 'call to actions'. I will however, listen again at some point.

    Why did I title this review 'Emperor's New Clothes'? The book reminds me of the children's story... but not quite in the way you might think... Until it was pointed out to the Emperor that he was actually naked, he was the happiest and most confident he had ever been.

    "Superb! For aspects of your life!"

    I read Jamie's book within days, not being able to put it down, so many insights. His book is in my top 3 of the best books I have read (i have read probably 300+ books, 120+ on self help alone!) I have read it at least a further 5 times! Getting more and more understanding out of it every time!

    I didn't think the audio could be better than the book, I was very wrong!

    This audio goes one step further, there is a difference between reading a book, well for me, then listening! I had a huge insight that reading I concentrate to much on the words and not enough on what is being said in the book. Plus Jamie voice is almost mediative to listen too!

    I turned the audio on and was lucky to have the time to listen to the whole thing from beginning to end, woke up the next day and there was something different about me! Wonderfully different!!! To brilliant to explain in words!! 3 days later still have that feeling of peace, wonderfulness and clarity! Able to do anything with ease and grace!

    This audio can change all aspects of your life!

    This audio is a must! :-) Thanks Jamie X

    "My God this is boring"

    This promises a lot but delivers little. Read by the author in a dull, almost hypnotic drone, it should be exciting, but turns out to be very very dull.

    "this stuff is not new"

    The central tenet of this book is not new; our thoughts create our feelings. There's certainly nothing wrong with writing a new treatment of an old idea, but unfortunately this one achieves nothing new and is really repetitive, verbose and waffley. There is too much waffle that is not useful enough for real life built around the idea, nothing helpful. Way too much business jargon and too much focus on corporate and entrepreneurial arenas. And honestly, do people still really want to talk about "leverage points"?

    Read some good Buddhist books instead.
    Not recommended.

    "Hard Work & I'm not sure I 'get it'!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The subject matter was promising but a patronising style & complicated ideas made this a struggle - didn't get to the end!


    What will your next listen be?

    Fiction - something lighter!


    What didn’t you like about Jamie Smart’s performance?

    "Very anecdotal"

    He has a low husky voice which works well with what he is going for. The his is you feel your thoughts and before he tells you anything "important" he uses anecdotes to derail your attention and then tells you at the end of the book to attend one of his work shops.

    "Some useful fundamental thoughts..."

    I found the core message of the book very useful and interesting. It felt like the main message drew a lot from the under pinnings of mindfulness practice but with some everyday context. My main issue though is that the book seemed very repetitive and for a while got frustrating. The few times I checked out the online resources I didn't find anything of use.

    The reflection points at the end of each chapter.

    This is the first listen of Jamie Smart's performance.

    "The book lacks what it says on the title...clarity"

    There is a constant thought stream of how great clarity is and what Non superstitious thinking can do for you. However I struggled to find how you get clarity. I kept thinking at the start of the book that, "he will explain it soon" and at the end I was left thinking "did I miss it?"
    There is a lot of egotistical language about a new paradigm and that "this is the next step in human evolution" etc but unfortunately I'm left wondering where is the substance? Is this just him trying to sell his one to one coaching and his seminars?
    Maybe I missed the point, there are good ideas here but unfortunately the book lacks what it says on the title...Clarity

    "Definitely a new angle"

    Jamie's differentiation of thoughts into two categories, inside-out and outside-in is definitely a new concept to savour. Most of the other concepts are covered by Mindfullness.
    The narration of this book was a bit subdued and artificial otherwise the book was a great listen.
