Publisher's Summary

The first edition of Radical Honesty became a nationwide best seller in 1995 because it was not a kinder, gentler self-help book. It was a shocker! In it, Dr. Brad Blanton, a psychotherapist and expert on stress management, explored the myths, superstitions and lies by which we all live. And this newly revised edition is even worse!

Blanton shows us how stress comes not from the environment, but from the self-built jail of the mind. What keeps us in our self-built jails is lying.

"We all lie like hell," Dr. Blanton says. "It wears us out...it is the major source of all human stress. It kills us." Not telling our friends, lovers, spouses, or bosses about what we do, feel, or think keeps us locked in that mind jail. The way out is to get good at telling the truth, and Dr. Blanton provides the tools we can use to escape from that jail of the mind. This book is the cake with the file in it.

In Radical Honesty, Dr. Blanton coaches us on how to have lives that work, how to have relationships that are alive and passionate, and how to create intimacy where none exists. As we have been taught by the philosophical and spiritual sources of our culture for thousands of years, from Plato to Nietzsche, from the Bible to Emerson, the truth shall set you free.

    "Loved it!!!"
    Where does Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is definitely in my top 3 books that I've bought on Audible.com.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth?

    My favorite part is when he tells why he wrote the book and what he wants from writing it. He speaks from the heart and says most things people won't say, but could, if they were being honest.


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

    N/A


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

    Not so much. I guess I was inspired at the idea of being honest and what it can do for your life, mentally, emotionally, and physically. I really related to what he was saying from where I was in my life and seeing that a lot of what holds me back or creates the way I feel is from withholding what is true for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the idea of being honest in as many areas of life as possible! It's not always going to be easy, and like they say anything worth earning takes some effort. I also like how he describes the difference between being and mind. A distinction that isn't always covered in western society, and yet from my experience is key to knowing "yourself" so you can be honest about "who you are".

    "Poor recording"
    Would you try another book from Brad Blanton and/or Brad Blanton?

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    n/a


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    One part of the book repeated... It may have been a whole chapter. Also, the way it was read was difficult to listen to.

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    "Worst book on auible"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one. The book contains no real story. All there is is "tell he truth". That's it, I told you the whole content of the book. Plus, the narration is really bad, don't know how audible permits this. Not always the author is the best narrator. You can hear him pauisng and stopping, breathing. Volume goes up and down, etc.


    What was most disappointing about Brad Blanton’s story?

    That there is no story at all. Or that all can be said in "tell the truth to everyone". That's it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Brad Blanton’s performances?

    Not at all. Waste of money and time. I didn't finish the book, I tried to listen to it until chapter 11. I couldn't more, it was so boring. Once I listen to it during insomnia; it worked fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy it.
