Publisher's Summary

Deepak Chopra, Debbie Ford, and Marianne Williamson - New York Times best-selling authors and internationally acclaimed teachers - have joined together to share their knowledge on one of the most crucial obstacles to happiness we face: the shadow. These three luminaries, each with a signature approach, bring to light the parts of ourselves we deny but that still direct our life. For it is only when we embrace our shadow that we discover the gifts of our authentic nature.

The shadow exists within all of us. It is a part of us and yet we spend most of our life running from it. But far from being scary, our dark side holds the promise of a better, more fulfilling life. Our shadow makes itself known every day. It is the reason we get furious over a friend showing up 10 minutes late, yell at our parents or kids when they have done nothing wrong, and sabotage our own success at the worst possible time. Until we are able to embrace our dualistic nature, we will continue to hurt ourselves and those closest to us and fall short of our potential.

Combining the wisdom of three experts, The Shadow Effect is a practical and profound guide to discovering the gifts of our shadow. These three authors powerfully pierce the veil of our unclaimed self, releasing us from the past and propelling us on a journey to wholeness. No longer living a half life, we are capable of achieving our dreams and reclaiming the happiness that is our birthright.

    "Great message but very poor production quality"

    I think what these amazing authors has to say is really important, but the production quality and performance detract so badly for me that I can't stand to listen to the audio book. There is a loud buzzing constantly throughout the narration. It only stops when there is a break between narration. Please Deepak, Marrianne and Debbie re-record this professionally so that we can consume this great content.

    "Shadow Effect."
    If you could sum up The Shadow Effect in three words, what would they be?

    enjoyable and exciting.


    What other book might you compare The Shadow Effect to and why?

    i have not heard a book quite like this one before.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    that we all have a dark side in hiding.


    Any additional comments?

    i really enjoyed this book very much. it opened my eyes to things that i would have not noticed before this book.

    "Life Changing"

    This book changed the way I see the world. My feelings toward myself and others have shifted drastically. I have been able to move from a place of hurt to a place of acceptance and happiness. I would recommend this to everyone who is on a journey of self growth.

    "Please hire a professional narrator"
    Would you listen to The Shadow Effect again? Why?

    I would prefer to read the book over listening to this performance twice. The content was very interesting and worth the single listen, but I WILL NOT listen twice.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I really enjoy the work of Deepak Chopra, but I find his narration very distracting. I was further distracted from the other authors who presented their own chapters.

    I recognize and appreciate that some listeners find comfort and sincerity in hearing the authors words spoken by the authors themselves, as if they were attending a seminar with the author. I am not one of those people. After listening to well over 75 audio books I have become accustomed to professional narrators. With professional narrators I am able to relax and take in the content. When hearing professional authors perform like amateurs I become distracted and spend more time trying to become adjusted to their voice and pace.

    To help quantify my personal bias, I would much prefer to listen to a musical album that was done in the studio than listen to a concert performance of the same album.

    In the future, I will not purchase any audio books that are narrated by their authors. I will save those for print format.

    "average"

    This is a very simple audio, Debbie Ford is the most significant speaker. Deepak Chopra just keeps rehashing the same information in different audiobooks for what appears to be financial gain. Less spiritual and organic in my view.

    "Shadow made boring"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The problem with this book is that Debbie Ford's voice was impossible to tolerate


    What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

    The information was, for the most part, helpful. But suddenly you would be subjected to drivel


    Any additional comments?

    This would have been a good book to scan and hop around in, not a steady read.

    "No need to join-forces for something this basic."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book may appeal to someone who has never learned about the ego, pain body or Jungian studies.


    Has The Shadow Effect turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. Deepak Chopra and Marianne Williamson are amazing teachers and authors.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    Absolutely.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Shadow Effect?

    The static while Deepak Chopra spoke and Debbie Ford would speak without sounding like she's reading.

    "2 for 3 were very good"
    If you could sum up The Shadow Effect in three words, what would they be?

    I loved it!


    Any additional comments?

    I really found Deepac Chopra fascinating and have since listened to more of his books. Debbie Ford offered some really valuable insights also. Although I know that Marianne Williamson is very popular - for me she was the least interesting but I am not a Christian so it doesn't resonate with me.

    "Practical Guide to Navigating Life"
    Where does The Shadow Effect rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is among my favorites. It is practical and useful, direct and to the point without the ditstraction of hype


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    myself...


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Sharing of truth without ego or emotional manipulation


    What did you learn from The Shadow Effect that you would use in your daily life?

    The Identity of the Whole Self/Higher Self is not the light and dark that it experiences every day. We can choose to accept and move beyond this and in doing this contribute to each other, the world and the universe in the greatest way possible


    Any additional comments?

    I am greatful for this awareness
