Having read & enjoyed the book some time ago I was looking forward to hearing the audio version. To say that this book is "abridged" is an understatement. I'm sure that if there was a Cliff Notes version of this book it would contain 10 times the information than this audio version.
The audio book is toooo short. It's a really "A"bridged version of the book. Good material. But not enough for a book.
I found very little of substance here... lots of long, drawn out stories followed by an attempt to draw a lesson or piece of information to learn from, but mostly it falls flat. To be fair this edition is SO abridged that I wonder if the actual book would deliver a totally different message. But for this audiobook, thumbs down.
The music in the background was both distracting and made the narrator hard to hear.
Annoyed at the lack of real substance.
Good ideas, optimism intermixed with western, eastern philosophy. The psychotherapist as the flawed healer. I found the stories and text interesting, but lacking in depth. The music was distracting. The narrator made the rather sophomoric prose come alive.
This book really enhanced my perspective on spirituality and about being human. Wonderful stories and a learned author. If you feel a little lost, this book will easily get you back home.
I was disappointed this was an abridged version. I think this needs to be made clearer.
