    "EVERYBODY SHOULD READ THIS BOOK!"
    Any additional comments?

    Seriously - if you have any interest at all in self-improvement, spiritual growth and learning to live a life free and in the present, you need to read this book. This is one of those things that I can't even describe in a review - this book is an investment in yourself, and i encourage everybody to read it. Seriously. Just trust that sometimes the Universe puts a message in your path that will help change your life and make you grow into a better person - this is that message.

    Story
    "Strong center concept, weak conclusion."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The conclusion was disappointing. I would have it rely less on theology.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was a let down. The central message was about knowing your self. The author offered great guidance about training thoughts, up until the last chapter. Suddenly, armed with my toolbox, anticipating a wild conclusion, I was left slightly disappointed, about the message...just have faith.


    What three words best describe Peter Berkrot’s performance?

    fatherly, confident, assertive


    Did The Untethered Soul inspire you to do anything?

    Yes. I was left inspired to practice taking experiences in and letting them go.


    Any additional comments?

    There ware many helpful lessons about understanding internal energy. Michael Singer explains that if you hold on to experiences, wether good or bad, they create blockage.I am currently going to practice taking things in and then letting them go so that I could always be ready for the next experience.

    Story
    "Odd narration but oddly soothing"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator. While the book is pretty good, the narrator was challenging. In addition to what might best be described as a nasally sardonic tone (perhaps this is how he usually speaks?), he seemed to periodically get distracted and direct the end of a sentence towards something over his shoulder. This resulted in a lot of speaker oriented neck craning and volume twiddling... only to then have the sound restored to normal levels. This improved towards the end but I lost a few concluding remarks which might have been important to my overall understanding, though possibly not given that most of the key themes and messages were repeated - albeit in various guises.

    The repetitive aspect is not a serious criticism as repetition of 'the central philosophy' seems to be a feature of many self development and spiritual growth tools - perhaps the drip drip method is the one most proven to have success with 'reluctant transformers' and certainly helpful if, like me, you tend to find yourself drifting off... In any case there were some genuinely positive and useful messages nested in there and I have consequently found myself successfully practicing some of the little loving gems he recommends while having what might usually be more challenging conversations with e.g. parents. All in all a good book - though still not sure the narrator, with his slightly nasal disbelieving tone, was the best choice to deliver the author's message.

    "So enlightening!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Untethered Soul to be better than the print version?

    Yes and no. I can get through many more books audibly but feel print is best for highlighting important quotes, taking notes, and bookmarking.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Untethered Soul?

    "Acceptance means events can make it through you without resistance".


    Any additional comments?

    Just a great perspective on how we can overcome the chattering mind and feel more at peace.

    Story
    "Incredible"

    I have now listened to this book about four times. It is amazing in its enlightenment of becoming aware. It does not contradict with any religious belief. Singer simply explains the truth about ourselves and our minds. The miracle of life is truly the center of his thesis. Living life one second at a time. The truths discussed have been discovered and taught by others but Michael Singer seems to be able to relate it and teach it very simply. It is much like a book on Physics. These are simply laws of the universe and not opinion. The narrator Peter Berkrot does an excellent job...so good I assumed I was listening to the author since Berkrot speaks as if he is an expert teaching and not a narrator reading.

    "Okay, not great"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Untethered Soul to be better than the print version?

    This is a good book with practicle advice of how to look at your inner self. At some points the wording is sort of heady but mostly understandable. If you want to work on yourself and how you think, this book offers a different way of looking at how we think.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael A. Singer? Why or why not?

    Sort of hard to follow all of his lines of thinking


    What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?

    No problems with the reading.


    What did you learn from The Untethered Soul that you would use in your daily life?

    To stop and think about what I'm thinking about and why.

    Acting. He read as if he were the writer.

    "Several Ahaaaa moments"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Untethered Soul to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version so cannot comment on it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author laid out the book well. He communicated his thoughts and ideas well.


    What aspect of Peter Berkrot’s performance would you have changed?

    He voice tone modulated moderately loud to soft. It made it hard to hear some of what was being read. I frequently changed volume while listening.


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

    No it was easy to pick up with a little back tracking to refresh the memory. Actually, it was better to listen to some of the book and then sit with the information for a while.

    I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.

    This was not a story, but a learning journey.


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

    I think it would be difficult to listen to this in one sitting.
