Easily readable and packed with good information, 'Positivity' is important for those who want a step-by-step approach to a flourishing life.
I loved listening to this book on my way back and forth to work each day. It always gave me something to think about thoughout my day; some new things to consider or try. I found myself really trying to listen to other people and trying to understand where they were coming from as I was listening to this book. She has so many good, practical, and easy ideas to help you be the most positive and happy person you can be. I'm so glad I listened to this book!
I found the writing style and narrator a bit difficult to stomach at times. I was able to look beyond what I found objectionable and extract some good information, however. This is how I have approached many (if not all) of the self-help books I have read over the years and it has proven to work for me. If you begin this book and think to yourself "Ug! I can't take several hours of this!", try to listen for the nuggets of wisdom/good info. They are in there!
A must to listen or read. This book can change your life for the better. When life gets tough, this book can be a powerful tool to help you deal with life's struggles.
A bit ironic that I'm saying negative things on a book about positivity, but oh well..
The content of the book is overall ok and gets better towards the end. I think it could be a lot shorter as the author sometimes goes into examples that take too long and are not always as applicable to the point she's trying to make as I would like. Other books based on scientific studies (such as Dan Ariely's) also present studies but in a much clearer and funnier way, which helps us readers enjoy and remember more.
Also the narrator seems like she's reading a fairy tale.
I stuck through the whole thing and learned a few things, but overall it wasn't a ver good experience, in my opinion.
I would recommend this book most definitely. I can't say I am magically more positive, but I know the steps to take and the importance of taking them when I am ready to change. The content was great, the anecdotes were applicable, but had I listened on regular time, I don't think I would have had the same opinion. Speed it up!
Gave me a lot to think about and do. Really appreciate the overall approach. I can see cultivating a number of habits to help my life flourish.
We make and create our own drama. I now can choose to react in a different perspective. I will always come back to the book when I find that my negativity is consuming more of my life than Positivity. I love that I can be part of the big picture with her on going research at her website.
Me. It spoke to me and how I viewed what my life was showing me about my perspective
She struck a chord of truth.
I've read the book and wanted to listen to it to review some of the concepts.
Great Insights! and backed up by science.
But the Boring Classroom-Style Narration makes it useless as an audiobook.
A good professor or speaker puts emotion and warmth into the reading. The narrator adopts a disinterested
Should be re-recorded
