I used the lessons here to deal with bad habits I've been trying to get over for years. By going through the steps in this book you will learn to get rid of any ‘addiction’ and a bad habit is an ‘addiction’. You will also get a history that is taught at all AA/NA meetings. It is important to understand the history of how we came to the current ways to free people from addictions of any kind. Just remember that this is not an easy path as your addictions will fight back to keep where they are.
A long time reader and listener - I just can't get enough of Audible! (Especially mysteries and Buddhist texts and history and ...etc!
I really love Chopra and am a self-help fanatic, admittedly ;) I loved the ideas in this book, really well written and presented. It helped me with my shopoholism! And just helped me feel more whole.
However - as an earlier reviewer mentioned - the narration is absolutely awful. Honestly, Gingold butchers this content. I actually gave up on this audio, and bought the e-book from Amazon to read on my Kindle.
Gingold (the narrator) drones on in a mechanical, clipped voice. Seriously, he sounds like he's reading a list of ingredients from the back of a cereal box. It really ruined the content for me, as I was constantly repeating in my head, in a more soothing voice, the words so they would feel right.
So, in conclusion, this was an excellent book, but, because of the poor narration, it is much better to just by the printed or e-book version.
I was shocked when the reader's voice began--nasal, too loud, awkwardly read. The material was clearly powerful, but there was no way I could listen to that for more than a few minutes. I feel so ripped off--honestly, couldn't someone have advised them? Really--it's the quality of the recording that will help make this medium work; I don't know whose voice that was
Not if the same voice is on it as on the start of this one--was that David Simon or Alfred Gingold?
Possibly...but I don't know. I've heard him elsewhere--was that him or David Simon at the start of the recording?
YES--the text...which I'm now going to have to go buy to read after wasting my credit on this here.
DISAPPOINTED...wish I'd never bought it here. What poor quality control.
and fyi, I am a voice and performance teacher and do voice overs myself. I don't expect my students to sound like pros, but when I'm paying for something that is internationally advertised, I expect quality. If it wasn't the voice, then it was audible's media. Either way, a big disappointment.
