Mark and Giulia's life together began as a storybook romance. They fell in love at 18, married at 24, and were living their dream life in San Francisco. When Giulia was 27, she suffered a terrifying and unexpected psychotic break that landed her in the psych ward for nearly a month. One day she was vibrant and well adjusted; the next she was delusional and suicidal, convinced that her loved ones were not safe.

If you want to hear about walking on the beach feeling sorry for yourself and eating cereal this would be the book for you. I really don't even know why the author thought anyone would want to hear about daily minutia.

If you have any interest in Fleetwood Mac, this is a must read! So interesting to hear the unvarnished history of a great band. Follow up with listening to the book called Making Rumors.

This leading-edge program by Esther and Jerry Hicks, who present the teachings of the non-physical entity Abraham, will help you understand the emotions that you've been experiencing all of your life. Instead of the out-of-control, knee-jerk reactions that most people have to their ever-changing life experience, this work will put those responses into a broader context. You'll come to understand what emotions are, what each of them means, and how to effectively utilize your new awareness of them.

Would you try another book from Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks and/or Jerry Hicks?

Never.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not a book by these two.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jerry Hicks?

Anyone.

Any additional comments?

I am still in disbelief. The stuff they write...."Abraham comes to his wife with messages". I feel sorry for the people that believe this stuff. I hate to think that i spent $27.00 for this crazy book. I have tried to listen a few times and I can't do it.
