The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Patanjali explores yoga fundamentals, one of the six orthodox philosophies of the Hindu religion, and is revered as one of the greatest texts of the practice of yoga. Comprised of 196 aphorisms dating back to 400 CE, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is divided into four chapters that explore the blissful state, the practice, the manifestation, and the liberation stages of yoga.

It's like it's 99.9 % crap and 0.1% sutras. I regret that I purchased this version.

Mindset is one of those rare audio books that can help you make positive changes in your life and at the same time see the world in a new way. A leading expert in motivation and personality psychology, Carol Dweck has discovered in more than 20 years of research that our mindset is not a minor personality quirk: it creates our whole mental world. It explains how we become optimistic or pessimistic. It shapes our goals, our attitude toward work, and ultimately predicts whether or not we will fulfull our potential.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I found it to be informative about my own mindset.

What didn’t you like about Marguerite Gavin’s performance?

I found the narration difficult to listen to. I had to force myself to get through it. I like the book in spite of the narrator.

Any additional comments?

Though I had serious issues with the narration (I found it irritating), I think the book was worth the credit. I'm better off for having listened to it.
