Publisher's Summary

How to Live a Good Life is a practical and provocative modern-day manual for a life well-lived. Drawn from the intersection of science, spirituality, and Jonathan Fields' years-long quest to learn at the feet of world-renowned masters from nearly every tradition, this book offers a simple, yet stunningly powerful tool for life.

It then walks you through 30 days of fun, yet powerful mini-challenges, designed to rekindle deep, loving, and compassionate relationships; cultivate vitality, radiance, and graceful ease; and leave you feeling lit up by the way you contribute to the world. No need for blind faith or surrender of intelligence; everything you'll discover is immediately actionable and subject to validation through your own experience.

How to Live a Good Life is not just a book to be listened to; it's a path to possibility, to be walked, then lived.

    "Actionable guide to Living a Good Life NOW"
    What did you love best about How to Live a Good Life?

    I love that this book can be devoured and savored. It's written to give you thirty days of small steps that will move you forward but I couldn't help myself and listened to the entire book as quickly as possible and then could go back and take the actionable steps.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Live a Good Life?

    I loved hearing the author's voice reading the passages. Hearing Jonathan's inflections and pacing really helped me feel like I was in the room with him having a conversation.


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

    I've seen Jonathan live and he doesn't disappoint. Hearing him bring this book to life is amazing.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from How to Live a Good Life?

    I'm definitely going to make the three buckets part of my daily life. I've already increased my meditation practice.

    "A lovely book, beautifully read by the author"
    Where does How to Live a Good Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love listening to books read by their authors - there is something both special and comforting in knowing the points made and emphases given are right where the author intends them to be. Fields is a great and skilled interviewer, and so reads his book with easy confidence.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Live a Good Life?

    Too many to list - it bears going slowly so you get the full impact of all the "aha!" moments


    What about Jonathan Fields’s performance did you like?

    I felt like I was in a one-on-one conversation (as opposed to being lectured to!)


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from How to Live a Good Life?

    A mindfulness to the buckets concept that Fields lays out in the book. It's the kind of thing that once you understand it, you'll never ignore it again.

    "Comfort, Community & Motivation to Live Happy"

    I found great comfort listening to this book post US election 2016. Jonathan Fields masterfully crafts a framework for evaluating and improving our own life experience. Filling our buckets of 1) Vitality, 2) Connection and 3) Contribution is ever evolving and takes self-loving effort but the result allows us to radiate our unique beautiful light for others. It's attractive and contagious. Our world needs to see you shine on this magnificent journey.

    "genius content"
    Where does How to Live a Good Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    one of the best ones I've heard. definitely a 11 out of 10.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jonathan Fields narration made the experience so beautiful. It's complicated to live a good life but Fields' approach to life has convinced me that not only is a good life achievable through intentional living but it is our birthright.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed reading about the connection bucket because connection is one of my top values. And my favourite part was all the daily exploration exercises/activities
