      Story
      "Realize Your Value By Loving Yourself"
      Would you listen to How to Love Yourself again? Why?

      Indeed, I would listen to it since it enlightened me on the things that I need to focus on in order to appreciate myself all the more. With that, I get to love myself to the fullest.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Love Yourself?

      One of the most memorable for me is the reminder to not get swayed by the misconceptions and images portrayed by the different types of media.


      What about Amy Barron Smolinski’s performance did you like?

      There was calmness in the narration. Additionally, I could sense the feelings and emotions as I listened to her.


      What did you learn from How to Love Yourself that you would use in your daily life?

      I learned four things. First is the importance of doing the things that I love; thus, bringing about happiness. Another thing that struck me is refraining from stress by prioritizing and organizing, especially with financial obligations. Third is going about negative people or situations. Last is showing generosity not only in cash but in kind as well.


      Any additional comments?

      It was very enlightening!

      "Positive messages to help you learn how to love yo"
      Would you listen to How to Love Yourself again? Why?

      I would definitely listen to this book again! It helped remind me of what a wonderful person I am, and really picked up my mood.


      What did you like best about this story?

      If you're struggling with self doubt and self esteem issues, try listening to this book. I played it on my commutes home from work, and it was able to remind me of my assets and skills, and that I should be proud of who I am.


      Which character – as performed by Amy Barron Smolinski – was your favorite?

      I particularly liked the inflections that Amy Barron Smolinski included in her reading. It really felt like she was bringing Greens words to life, and was really urging you to be happier with yourself.

      Just her voice brings calmness and helps me understand the book further through her own explanations and it brings a much joy able atmosphere.


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

      I wanted to listen to it in one full seating but i had to allow myself for breaks to fully immerse myself in the story a lot better when i went back and forth

      Story
      "Uncommon Wisdom for Women"
      If you could sum up How to Love Yourself in three words, what would they be?

      Trust, Balance, and Wisdom


      What other book might you compare How to Love Yourself to and why?

      I've read a lot of books on the topic of successful relationships and living well. This book really stands out because Ms. Green provides really sound advice and guidance that is accessible and applicable. I think this book could easily have a companion journal!


      Which scene was your favorite?

      Ms. Green discusses how the world we live in is based upon creating dissatisfaction in some area and then offering a "solution", which is usually an expensive purchase or hobby. This is a paraphrase from the book: "There's a large market for unhappy people" meaning that the world teaches us that we'll only be satisfied when we buy, buy, buy. But this really isn't the case! There's some really sound advice in this book about choosing friends. We have to listen to ourselves and if a person makes you uncomfortable you have to pay attention to it. There's a lot of important information about choosing the right people to spend time with. I wish I'd had this advice years while I was in college.


      What insight do you think you’ll apply from How to Love Yourself?

      There are a lot of pearls of wisdom in this book and it's very thought provoking. The first is to trust yourself, which Ms. Green points out is "defectively simple." How true! Also, a way to show others respect is to give them permission to be imperfect. Finally, all areas of our lives need to be in balance in order to be genuinely happy.


      Any additional comments?

      This is a great book! Having a healthy relationship with yourself will change everything about your life. I highly recommend this book for women of all ages, but especially young women.

      Story
      "Building your self Esteem from ground 0"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      Yes! Learning to love yourself is important, especially for the single person. You can't love someone else if you don't love yourself. This book gives you step by step help on how to learn to love yourself and build self esteem.


      What did you like best about this story?

      The helpful information on loving yourself and embracing who you are as a person and what makes you so amazingly special and happy you aren't somebody else.


      What does Amy Barron Smolinski bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

      I enjoy listening to audio books because you can hear the inflection in their voice and it adds to how the book flows.


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

      Just the chapters about "trusting yourself" and "Who you are" those were key for me.

      "Extremely helpful audiobook!"
      What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Love Yourself?

      I have read many self-help books regarding this topic, but this audiobook really stands out from the rest. I had problems with negative thinking and negative self-image (I am overweight) my whole life, and I’ve tried out some exercises and advice I learned from this audio book and they really did help. The principles are simple but aren't easy to apply without practice ans persistence. I plan to listen it a few more times, and next time I will take notes!

      "Good content"

      I found it to have some good content. But I felt it didn't identify some more serious aspects at people with more self esteem issues face.

      "Don't waste your time"

      This book had no substance- it was more of a "stream of consciousness". Not only was it not useful, it may be damaging because it may discourage listeners from from doing further research into this important topic.
