Life changing material. Many AHA moments.
He didn't read the book smoothly. Each word was read one by one rather than as reading a story. There was no intonation....monotonous. It was so bad that I almost returned the book, but the material was so good that I stuck it out. I would love to listen again, as I do with some books with such helpful information, but I cannot bring myself to tolerate the narrator again.
No. I drive about 500 miles each week so I listen while I am driving.
This is such an awesome book with wonderful, life changing material, but PLEASE, PLEASE get a different narrator. I believe this book will lose people it needs to reach only because of the narrator.
Dr. Henry Cloud, the author of course.My brain just couldn't make the connection to the voice of Michael Prichard even though he is an excellent narrator. Dr. Henry Cloud has a familiar voice in the way of a beloved uncle who tells interesting stories. The book could have been excellent but the cadence from a disciplined voice could not carry the heartbeat of the subject matter.
Henry Cloud writes books that change lives and this one is full of solid steps and illustrations that take the concepts and help make them a reality. This book integrates spiritual, psychological, business and personal living in a way that is seamless.
The stories are all very helpful in making all the points stand out.
He is very professional and precise in his reading. I think listening kept me from skimming and his voice is slow which slowed me down.
No. I would have had information overload.
I think the contractions in this book were a bit distracting in read form. It seemed too formal and since I've heard Dr. Cloud speak many times, it just didn't capture the tone of his personal speaking.
While I enjoyed the stories and insights, I would not recommend the audio version of the book to a friend. Ebook or physical, yes...audio NO. The narrator was bland; he sounded like Paul Harvey's "...And that is the rest of the story.", using the same monotone through the entire read. Not painful to listen to, just not pleasant to my ears. Could just be me, but I wish that I would have tried a sample before I bought it.
I did enjoy the books narrated by the author himself.
Besides the narrator being very dry, this is a typical Henry Cloud book: brilliant. I appreciated the wide range of stories from family to business. It is definitely worth the listen, and I have already told several of the stories to other people.
I really believe that if you have no God to answer to and to call on when it gets really tough, when your goals are based purely on fruits of this world, or even a better 'you' - the lessons don't really take root deep enough, and your drive to change or succeed may become based on purely selfish reasons. Or simply, you just get your reasons 'wrong'. Anyway... when you really think about it, you pick up a book like this when you are ready to go deeper. When a "think happy thoughts, say nice things, do a jig, say Thank You to the universe' book (or even, books) didn't quite do it for you. I also love the fact that it was written by a psychologist.
This has become one of my favorite books by Dr. Cloud. I have been looking for faith-based psychology resources for a while. His writing style is such that keeps the listener engaged. His information is inspired and relevant for today.
Boundaries series. The information and writing styles are similar.
Michael Prichard's voice wasn't initially engaging, but as I continued to listen to the book, I focused more on the message than the messenger. What I did appreciate was his reading pace; it caused me to focus on the information in the book.
This is definitely a book I wanted to listen to in one sitting. I also enjoyed re-listening to sections already covered (I was taking notes...)
I'm thankful that Dr. Cloud went into psychology instead of finance. His writings have been a blessing to my life and countless others.
