    "Beautiful insight -- a voice I want to hear!!"
    If you could sum up The Untethered Soul in three words, what would they be?

    lightdeeptransformative


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

    This book is one of a kind!


    What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?

    Berkrot's performance was enticing, insightful and kind. His voice was persuasive, endearing, and pleasant.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Untethered Soul?

    One of my favorite lines was about "getting to know people, not just meet them." It changed the way I handle stress and negativity. Over time, I hope to learn how to completely reconstitute how I react in emotional situtations. dThis book gives me tools I needed to detach from stress and live fully in happiness.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic! Will listen again and again.

    Tranquillity, Prudent Decisions - creating your own history, Success


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

    Noticed that I should Never Gloat to be unstoppable; unlimited.


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

    No,but I would attend if I can.


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

    Yes and No; it was too profound that I personally have to listen to it serval times to decipher - partly I believe my English proficiency is a constriction that holding me back, but I think I'll get there pretty soon. - I can taste it!


    Any additional comments?

    Well, what can I say? there must be a

    "If you are spiritual but not religious, move on..."
    What would have made The Untethered Soul better?

    The author continually undermines his arguments by using Christian concepts to support them (Angel of Death,the Gospel of John, Jesus, Christian concept of God). The rave review from Deepak Chopra should have served as a warning. No doubt, this 'best selling author' will be featured at Learning Annex's all around the country, for years to come. To cleanse the palate, pick up 'god is not Great' by Christopher Hitchens.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael A. Singer again?

    To paraphrase Singer; each day might be my last - and I could not possibly risk wasting any part of what is left of my life - reading this dribble.


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

    All but the part about finding your inner voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Painful to get through...

    "Needs a good sound editor"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Untethered Soul to be better than the print version?

    Content was amazing but I kept getting distracted by the poor audio editing... The volume went up and down, almost like the narrator was whispering at the end of each sentence.

    "My touchstone"

    This book was recommended to me via a podcast. It really hit a chord with me and has helped me immeasurably when the monkey in my head starts screaming about something. I go back to it again and again when I'm having a hard time letting something go. It's just something that happened; move on.

    I hope you get as much out of it as I did.

    "There are much better books out there"

    I bought this book because of the great reviews but unfortunately I didn't get much out of it. If you have not read any other books of this genre then it may appeal to you but much of the material has been addressed already in a more substantial, mature way by other authors (Tolle, Chopra). I found this book to be very, very repetitive and at times felt like yeling out "I get the point'. I also found it to be quite immature in it's examples and logic for example: "Do you think God likes to be around people who are happy or people that are miserable" Imagine you are God and you pop down to earth and ask the first person you see, do you like it here?

    So overall I would not recommend this book.

    "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.

    "Good content, horrible reading."

    Well I thought it was a good book, with a lot of insightful information.. but the person who read this book read it at an insanely fast pace! and has a very annoying voice. no presence at all. Sounded like a high pitched robot on ultra fast reading mode to be honest. For a book as deep as this, the author should have read it himself, seriously. He cannot be happy with how this turned out.
