    "New to topic. Not what I expected."

    I can't really knock the book because maybe I missed some information when purchasing it. I was expecting more of a history and layman term explanation but this was more of a lecture.

    Again, it was likely my fault because I missed something but the stories were enjoyable. The calm peaceful voice was very calming as well.

    "Great overview"

    I loved this book. A beautifully pieced together exposition. I learned so much. And I enjoyed the lovely bits of humor. I always listen to Jack Kornfeld at 1.25 speed, which is still plenty mellow for me. I've thoroughly enjoyed his teachings and recordings.

    "Sorry Jack"

    I really wanted to listen and learn from this audiobook.
    I was unable to get through the first 15 minutes because I found myself focusing on the narrator's breathing!
    Jack Kornfield's voice is fine but perhaps the microphone was too close? In any case, I was unable to listen.
