Williamson reveals how we each can become a miracle worker by accepting God and by the expression of love in our daily lives. Whether our psychic pain is in the area of relationships, career, or health, she shows us how love is a potent force, the key to inner peace, and how by practicing love we can make our own lives more fulfilling while creating a more peaceful and loving world for our children.

Felt too short and brief. Every topic is covered very briefly in it. Leaves you hungry for more. Never gets deep enough into anything...
This is an Abridged version, and is obviously so. It seems to have been chopped very short. It seems that Marianne Williamson has attempted to fit as many words as she could into the allotted time, and they are quality words, but the result is that she had to read it very fast, which is at odds with the material covered. It almost sounds as if it has been speeded up! The material would suit a slower presentation. Marianne Williamson's delivery and voice is otherwise very listenable to.
One or two sittings, yes.
Marianne's style will suit some people, probably those people in a real hurry. The content of the book is great, but the frieght train pace quickly makes one a little nauseous.
Yes I'm going to listen to it again and again to let her wisdom really sink in.
"The most enlightened prayer isn't, God send me someone wonderful, but dear God, make me into someone wonderful."
I highly recommend it! She makes A Course in Miracles more accessible and understandable.
The fact that this book is actually read by Marianne Williamson makes it worth listening to. I actually bought this so that my sister could listen to it, but I listened to it after reading the paperback.
The message is what is at the heart of this book, that it's all about being open to give love and to receive love. It's been around for a long time for a very good reason.
I wouldn't have experienced the amazing amount of editing that they did. What I'm saying is that the only thing that could have made it better (besides having been recorded in this millennium) is if it were unabridged. There's so much great stuff edited out, too much stuff I would even say.
This book shot straight to the top of my favorite books list. I continue to re-listen to the audio version, but, more than most books, reading it slowly is a richer experience for me.
Yes, especially because it's read by the author, and it brings the story and ideas to life.
I find truth in this story
There is no favorite "scene", it's not really that type of story.
Not necessarily, but I've read the book, listened on CD, and now listen on Audible. It's very inspirational. And like the author - every time you come back to it, you learn something new.
The author writes of something called "a course in miracles" as if it were a religion. I don't care for it.
Read this to realize love in every area of your life. It speaks of God and spirituality a lot, if those deter you replace those with something else. The basis of this book will change your life, love, work and relationships for the better.
