Publisher's Summary

Many people feel called to help others and change the world, but they just don’t know how to fulfill their potential. They have the creativity and passion, but often get lost, not knowing how to direct their energies. Now, popular life coach Martha Beck shows how readers can find their calling in service and healing - while realizing their destiny.

With a sparkling, compassionate, and often irreverent style, Beck draws from a combination of ancient wisdom and modern science to help readers consciously embrace vital skills that may be embedded in our DNA and are now made accessible again. Beck shows how to put together an “inner team” and an external “tribe” of people with the same aims and outlines four simple Steps for Transformation: Wordlessness, Oneness, Imagination, and Creation. With step-by-step instructions and guided reflections, Martha shows readers how to drop into the wordless state of communion with nature and self, how to connect with the oneness between self and the universe, how to be empowered by the spark of inspiration, and finally, how to take action and realize their creative potential to make a lasting impact in their own lives and the world around them.

Heartfelt, inspirational, and filled with “a-ha” moments, Finding Your Way in a Wild New World provides the map for the unconventional life path that leads to miraculous change.

    Martha Beck has some interesting ideas to share.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Rhino!


    What about Heather Henderson’s performance did you like?

    She was very detailed about different characters. Her voice is easy to listen to and keep you entertained.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Taking the time to stay quiet and connect with something greater than yourself, the universe. Learning to recognize everything and everybody are connected.

    "Wow! This is a fun book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Your Way in a Wild New World to be better than the print version?

    I'll let you know after I read the print version. I liked the audio version enough to order it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This was told by the author. Not really a character book.


    What does Heather Henderson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really felt like Martha Beck was having a conversation with me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Expeditions into finding the Wild True You!


    Any additional comments?

    I had read a few Martha Beck articles in O'Magazine. I read the reviews of her book here in Audibles.com and thought, what the heck, I'll try it. Talk about feeling like Destiny dropped this in my lap. Wow! If you are reading this review, then there is probably something drawing you to listen to this audiobook. Beck's unconventional approach is simple and profound. It quickly brings you to a clear way to find and follow your path to your true self.

    "Delightful and fun learning experience"
    If you could sum up Finding Your Way in a Wild New World in three words, what would they be?

    Joyful Mind Teachings


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, obviously the author since she is sharing her thoughts and experiences.


    Have you listened to any of Heather Henderson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No - and this was a lot of fun to listen to. The various accents she used as part of the narrative were done well (at least they fit their stereotypes) and the delivery was good for the funny parts, with good comedic timing. There were some smile inducing sections, and a couple of laughs.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Bend it Like Beck-I-AM (under some twisted cutlery)

    "Best Martha Beck book yet!"
    Where does Finding Your Way in a Wild New World rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I tend to listen to Martha Beck's books over and over. I like them best when she reads them, but this narrator is wonderful!!!!!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Finding Your Way in a Wild New World?

    The beginning of the book grabbed me and I was hooked from them on.


    What does Heather Henderson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Heather's voices and accents bring a depth to the audio book that is rich and rewarding.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to this book over and over on a two-hour commute between my home in the mountains and the city a couple times a month. I hear new things each time I listen.

    "Not good as an audible"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This is one of those books that you start listening to and realize that you should have gotten the paper version. There are too many spots that I would want to re-read, especially when she gives you different exercises to do.

    "Pure Magic"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Your Way in a Wild New World to be better than the print version?

    I really want both the audio version (which was captivating) and the print version (for reference)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Finding Your Way in a Wild New World?

    I love all the stories, I couldn't pick just one to talk about. The interactions with animals are just amazing.


    What does Heather Henderson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Heather's performance of this book is a true performance, she elegantly weaves in the perfect amount of accents to help create a real sense of place and character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    In the course of this book there were SO many moments of bing. Light bulbs going off all over the place for me, bringing together so many things that I've learned in other places.

    Story
    "AVOID, Don't waste your money"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Martha Beck again?

    No, she is clearly unbalanced


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I love the premise, I love the peppy upbeat vibe...but I hate the ridiculousness of it.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a sad review. The author is obviously so devestated by the fact her son was born with Down's Syndrom (and can't speak) that the author has created an alternative reality where his disability is not 'reality' and where they actually communicate through a telepathic type stream of conciousness. But she would have you believe, it's not just her,anyone can tape into this 'stream' and thereby improve their lives. And here is the whole reason for this book: she want's as many people as possible to buy into this idea.

    This audio book started so well, I really enjoyed the beginning and felt like it was going somewhere...until she started talking absolute fantasy and 'basing' or proving it with really bad and unproved science.

    Martha, I've been bending spoons since I was a child, so I'm more open to your ideas than most but it's clear to me that you are unwell. I'm sorry about your son but putting forward the idea that he planted dreams in your mind and communicates to you via some higher stream is just nonsense. You must be in a lot of pain to dedicate so much time and effort into what is essentially a work of fantasy. You are deceiving people. I'm not OK with you taking my money for this rubbish.

    Seriously.Get a grip already.

    Story
    "Repackaged New Age Silliness"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Magical thinkers who believe "The Secret" is real and who are willing to pay over and over again for repackaged buddhism.


    What could Martha Beck have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not much. I don't really see the world the same way as the author.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Toned it down a bit. The level of enthusiasm she expressed for small things was a little over the top.


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

    Laughter. The author kept insisting that this is not the same old new age "woo woo" but in the very next sentence would go on to espouse the same old new age mumbo jumbo. Sure she has her own labels to sell her own brand of wishful thinking, but their really is nothing new or particularly insightful here.


    Any additional comments?

    You want to succeed in life? All of these self help books can be boiled down to one simple sentence. Identify what you like and then commit yourself to the effort needed to achieve it. Everything else is just fluff and salesmanship
