    "opens your mind"

    I really enjoyed listening to this. I believe ever one should take the time to listen to it because we all can relate. We all know what it is like to have our minds chatter. That annoying roommate that prevents you from doing things or keeps you up at night. This is a book that will allow you to gain a deeper understanding of choice and making a choice. Clearing your mind is the foundation. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have. Have a good day people :)

    "Although the narrator is great, the content is not"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If there had been something useful.


    Has The Untethered Soul turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?

    Performance was great.


    Any additional comments?

    This book sounds good but there was not one thing that I can remember that impacted me or something that I will think of again. Waste of time.

    I love Audible. I think Mario Martinez's Audiobook "Mind-Body Code" is my overall favorite so far.

    "Fantastic book, I've got it in all formats!"

    Love it so much, got it in ebook, hardcopy, and audio, it's great!

    Something that I'll be referring to throughout life, particularly when I know that I'm getting too sucked into the occurrences of day to day life.

    If you're looking for help finding Inner Peace, this is a must read.

    "I was hooked after 2 chapters"
    Would you listen to The Untethered Soul again? Why?

    I have already started listening to it for the 2nd time.


    What other book might you compare The Untethered Soul to and why?

    So far, I have to say I have not found a book that has captured my attention as well as this one, not yet.


    What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?

    I found is tone very engaging.


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

    Yes, definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the first books I read on this topic and so far, one of the best by far.

    "chapter 17 ... hits hard and hits home..."

    I felt like I knew much of this, but toward the end.. it gave me plenty of ah-ha moments and I will probably read again at some point. Great book to introduce anyone to mindful living and beginning to see the way to live in most peace and love and clarity

    "Getting rid of that voice!"
    Would you listen to The Untethered Soul again? Why?

    I have listened twice and keep going back for reinforcement.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It really helped me to shut up that constant chatter, as an over thinker? I now understand that it wasn't over thinkimg but the voice/chatter in my mind overtaking.


    Which character – as performed by Peter Berkrot – was your favourite?

    Easy to listen to and follow - good sense of humour helped


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You couldn't


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended for anyone who wants to be able to shut up that chatter and really think!

    "One of the best I've purchased."

    I've listened to more than 50 audio books on spirituality, Buddhism, enlightenment, awakening etc., and this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review.
    The author offers many great metaphors and stories to help the listener really understand the concepts discussed. I can already see how easy it 'could be' to change my behaviour, my perception and my experience of the life that flows through and around me - concepts I'm looking forward to playing with from this moment on.
    In summary then, this audiobook offers many of the concepts and ideas that others do, but in a way that helps the listener to think about how he / she can apply them in a practical way to day-to-day life situations, and in turn step that much closer towards awakening.

    "Life Changing"

    This is the first book I have read that made a distinction between the voices in your head (internal dialogue) versus the impartial observer.

    Through many examples the book explains how to separate your thought processes from yourself. The challenge is to see and separate while understanding your transient role in this universe.

    I chuckled quite a bit in some parts and scratched my head in other parts.

    Definitely a book to listen to over and over again. Like its guidance to seek happiness in everything I shall be returning to this book to try to gain more of the knowledge it seeks to impart.

    "Terrible ending to an interesting read"

    As with all spiritual books, you can never get enough of them. Each one brings something slightly different to the table and as you grow, your understanding of the messages and metaphors used changes with you.

    There are some good metaphors used, interesting stories but..... the book is ruined by referencing bible quotes which start half way through the read. These seem so out of place with the rest of the teachings. To me it shows a lack of understanding on this topic from the author.

    We all read these books differently but in my opinion they should never cross into religion which puts spirituality in a box and gives it a label.

    A shame, but I will not be going anywhere near this author again.

    Story
    "Rinse and repeat"

    The most repetitive book imaginable. Without being facetious the contents could be clearly explained in five minutes. The author repeats the exact same premise over and over and over and over for the duration of the audiobook. I'm not joking, he must restate the exact same thing five hundred times.

    What's more the premise is largely absurd. Summarised it can be stated as 'don't worry about stuff'. Let everything wash over you, don't identify, don't grasp, just go with the flow and be happy. All very well until you realise that the entirety of human achievement has been accomplished by people with the exact opposite mindset. Scientific advancement, social reform, human rights - none of these came about through people sitting around and 'just letting go'.

    Maybe this book is a revelation for a lucky subset of the privileged middle classes, who may benefit from not dwelling on the horrors of life such as the dog groomerer failing to address Lulu's matted butt hair or when Tarqin's dance class has been cancelled for the second time this week. For the rest of us it's fuzzy idealism which not only cannot be followed in modern society, it should not be followed. I have a lot of time for Buddhists but the worldview of someone who spends their day up a mountain drinking tea and turning a prayer wheel does not translate well to those who live in modern, Western society.
