I'm a big fan of Jon Gordon's work. The content of this book was great. However, the narrator was horrible. His intonation is soo annoying that I found this book very difficult to finish despite the great content.
Jon Gordon is a talented author and narrator. I hope that in the future he sticks to narrating his own books.
Funnily enough i wasnt expecting such a light hearted and follow through story. I have read many practical books on finding my purpose and this has been one of the most inspiring, allowing me to question myself in the process of a fable. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to explore where they are at, why they may be there and just enjoy the story of a life and the signs in the offering. This book does make you think about the part you play in the bigger picture, and ultimately the choices that are yours. This will be a book i go back too when i need a rejuvenating view of a life - which is the ultimate review of an audio book from my perspective.
The principles in this book are interwoven with an interesting story line with similarities with the author's other books. this aids the reader to engegevwith the story without loding track of the principles being taught. the length of the books allow for engagement, application amd enjoyment without dragging out the story. Each book I have read so far from this author offered enjoyment with persuasion to move forward in my personal life.
It really makes you think and the story line was not as I expected.
His voice playing the main character and other characters.
How to help find my purpose.
This is a feel good story that is worth a listen. It makes you think about your own life and work situation. I truly enjoyed Erik's performance.
3 hours of inspiration. Wonderful story telling. Great food for thought. It confirmed my purpose for my life. If you are confused about life, listen to this. You may not find the answer on what to do with your life, BUT it will help you find contentment and a better attitude to make the most of where you are at NOW and strive for better things.
Purpose Driven Life compacted
Time. I am a stay at home mom who focus is on developing the kids. So our car rides are when I can listen to the books that I want to get knowledge from. The voice was soothing.
I've listened to two of Jon Gordon's books this week and he's a great writer that uncomplicated things and brings our thinking back to common sense and simplicity. His positive attitude in his writings inspire you to be a better person.
The story got at the essence of finding your purpose in life. The story seemed to try and avoid the fact that it was a spiritual story if not really a religious one. It would have been cleaner had it just accepted that it was rather than trying to conceal as some mystic paranormal activity.
Overall I enjoyed the book. I will likely listen to it again when I've had time to digest it. Did it change my life; probably not. Did it provoke some introspection with a different view point absolutely.
Great story that keeps you listening to hear what's next. I would prefer having Jon Gordon read it.
A story everyone can relate to
No, I had a hard time listening to him read this book.
No, it is complete on its own
