Publisher's Summary

Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

In this program, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has reviewed hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching and has created 81 distinct essays on how to apply the ancient wisdom of Lao-tzu to today's modern world. This work contains the entire 81 verses of the Tao, compiled from Wayne's researching of 10 of the most well-respected translations of text that have survived for more than 25 centuries. As Wayne says, "This is an audiobook that will forever change the way you look at your life, and the result will be that you'll live in a new world aligned with nature. I'm so proud to present this interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, and offer the same opportunity for change that it has brought me."

    Where does Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is definitely in the top 3.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has done an incredible job. You feel like listening to him time and time again. His essays about Tao's verses are very useful and applicable for everyday life.


    What does Dr. Wayne W. Dyer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He reads with contagious passion.


    What did you learn from Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life that you would use in your daily life?

    This morning for example I was listening about utter respect for life. His words about acceptance of circumstances are also quite inspiring.


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely recommend this profound book. I loved his book "Your Erroneous Zones" about twenty-years ago, and I still remember some of the good points he made there. It has been a pleasure to witness his evolution and his new work. As with any other book of similar topics, if for some reason you don't like it so much you should try it again maybe one or two years later, when maybe you are ready for it. This was the case for me and I'm really happy I gave it another try.

    "Great content, poorly delivered in audiobook form"

    I appreciate Wayne Dyer's presentation of the Tao - he does a great job of relating it to current lifestyles, work, relationships.

    What's frustrating about the Audible edition of his book is that the producers missed a key point in his introduction about how the book should be used. Each of the 81 verses is meant to be presented as a separate chapter, to be read and "processed" at a rate of one verse per day.

    But the audiobook does not follow this format. Verses are presented back-to-back, with no chapter breaks or bookmarks - not even a musical cue (as in some of Dr. Dyer's other audiobooks) to let you know that one verse is ending and another is about to start. There are "chapters", but they seem to have no relationship to the content. Instead, each chapter is about 65 minutes long - I'm guessing that corresponds to the length of the audio CD's.

    Providing a separate chapter for each verse would allow the listener to easily repeat the verse of the Tao that precedes Dr. Dyer's discussion. One could click forward through the chapter tracks to hear just the Tao verses alone - or find verses that applied to specific situations.

    "Change Me Please!!!"

    I love how Dr Dyer was able to put the Tao in a contemporary livable style. I have to say I nodded off a couple of times and had to rewind to listen again, but he has a very mellow voice and I like to think it was close to meditation! LOL. I'm at the age I nod off easily anyway so I can't really blame him, it's not a thriller/mystery. (which I've also nodded off listening to) OK, back on topic, this book places the Tao in an appropriate day to day easily understood, but hard for me to practice, just because I'm me, and good for me to think about way to observe things. I do want to be a better person, and I'm definitely not at the level to put all these things in practice, nor do I want to. Take what you like and leave the rest, it's got far too many good ideas not to listen!!!!

    "Always a Pleasure to Listen to Wayne"
    If you could sum up Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life in three words, what would they be?

    I was thrilled when I found this book on Audible because Wayne would be reading in his own voice, so the ideas would really feel present. I listen to this book everyday as I drive to work. It has changed how I start my day and how I interact with others. Great read; great listen!

    "My Life is Changed!"
    What did you learn from Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life that you would use in your daily life?

    The book has changed how I look at things. I am more of an observer which gives you more insight and understanding about what is going on around me.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been a fan of Wayne Dyer's for a long time. This book contains 81 verses of an ancient philosophers writings. Wayne quotes each verse and then elaborates on how to apply his teachings to your everyday life. I plan to listen to this book many times to gain deeper understanding.

    "anger management"

    LOL...this is a good anger management book. it is also good for people who have a tendacy not to think things out. this book is great in showing one to remove themselves from drama and be the listener and not the participant. just a small example of whats inside.
