    "Helped me redefine my relationship with money."

    Good book with some really great points. Sometimes it's gets a little too flowery for my taste, but it never really lost my attention.

    Definitely worth listening to!

    "Preachy narrator"

    The message of this book was good but it got a little redundant and preachy towards the end and the narrator made it even worse...she sounds like the strict goody goody teacher you always dreaded in school. I would prob not recommend this audible to my friends.

    "Life changer , sufficiency, collaboration,"

    This book has been a life changer for me., bringing my awareness to "for the good of all" way of being, and living. And that my self effort and self responsibility makes a difference. I am a citizen apposrd to a consumer and I love that way of living. Filled with gratitude I continue to shift my awareness. Thank you for offering such wisdom through this book.

    Story
    "Terrible Reader"

    The reader over pronounces her words in a way that no one talks, and it was very distracting. No emotion, almost like listening to the news for hours. I kept tuning the book out and after being halfway though, decided to call it quits. The content was probably great, but the reader was too distracting for me to actually listen to what they were saying.

    Story
    "Which is worse? Preachy Writing or Bad Narrator"
    What would have made The Soul of Money better?

    Narrator was intolerable; cloying snobbishness in her delivery, holier-than-thou turns of phrase...could barely force myself to continue listening


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cynthia Barrett?

    Someone with more natural conversational style / less pretentiousness


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Annoyed... the author is already going in too many unfocussed directions preaching and showing off, but the pretentious narration lends the possibility that the author sounds like this, too. (which I have no way of knowing)


    Any additional comments?

    Not a very interesting contribution, in the end, to the ideas the book purports to address

    "exceptional"

    Lynne Twist presents a point of view of the world that shifts the paradigm through the filter of how we relate with money. She enables you to really consider your relationship with yourself and as well as your fellow humankind. She raise the bar for all of us with incredible grace, intelligence and humility. This book is a game changer and she is an extraordinary leader !

    Story
    "Inspiring"

    She very competently puts in their place many of the beliefs so fondly held by our consumer society. With stories from her work around the world to end hunger and her insights gathered through this work she offers a perspective on money that could heal much that is wrong on this planet including particularly in the west, our disconnection from each other.

    Story
    "Phenomenal Book, didn't totally love the narrator"
    Would you listen to The Soul of Money again? Why?

    yes, because the content is important to me


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No, she mispronounces words like Marin (Marin County), Deva (a female spiritual deity) that no one bothered to tutor her on or look up, but most importantly, she sounds too business like for the way I feel someone in Lynne Twist's position would actually sound like.... a bit cold and informational, rather than really warm.
