Healing Your Attachment Wounds audiobook cover art

Good stuff, but really needs a table of contents.

These lectures (and they are delivered as lectures not as a regular audiobook) contain a lot of fantastic and useful information. But in order to use it more effectively, each chapter/lecture should have a title, indicating what the chapter is going to be about. Otherwise, it’s really hard to find what you’re looking for when you want to go back and review what she says about any given attachment style. I got completely lost trying to find anything. I think that’s a flaw both in the recording itself and in the audible format. Perhaps Sounds True could post a PDF of chapter headings — but I wasn’t able to find anything online.

I love that Chris Hadfield reads this himself. What a treat and an honor to hear an astronaut tell his own story.

The purpose of this is to get to know yourself and find out where your snarls are. This is useful! However, the question is, then what? I *think* this is helping me, but at times I get tired of thinking about my issues and just want some action items to get closer to my goals.

Wonderful, interesting, suspenseful story with very compelling fully rounded out characters. However, some of the words that the narrator chooses to emphasize actually makes the audio version a little hard to follow. There is a nigh hundred year old manual for readers called "essentials of elocution" that is wish all narrators would study!

I'm so grateful that I stumbled across this book. It was a classic case of one thing leading to another in my reading (and life) journey -- and what a difference this book has made to my happiness and overall experience of life, in such a short time. If you're receptive to the idea that most of your big and little stumbling blocks (to success in work, love, family harmony, etc) are actually originating in your own unconscious beliefs about what you deserve, then I believe you'll find this work to be incredibly helpful. I love that the audiobook is read by the author, too -- it makes all the difference!

Not only a great story, but a fun trip through the classic Sci fi/fantasy worlds we grew up with.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I am honestly surprised that the authors allowed this audiobook to be released (though they may not have had much say in the matter), because it really is compromised by the narrator. There is high quality, thought-provoking information here, but it was almost impossible to "hear" it due to the narrator's overbearing performance. His voice sounds harsh, angry, even drunk/bellering at times, and he is utterly unable to portray a female voice (many male narrators are very good at this, so I think this is a fair criticism). I really wanted to hear the message here, but after a few hours of listening, I just couldn't bear to go back to that crushing voice. It was giving me heartburn.

What did you like best about this story?

There is insightful and spiritually-based, but non-prudish information here.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dick Fredricks?

I think that one of the authors should have narrated this book. They are both very talented AND obviously they understand the significance of the material.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

NO.

So helpful. The only thing I wished for was a chapter on what to do if you feel YOU'RE the more controlling one in certain relationships or situations. Lots of solid spiritually founded perspective here!

The reading was very nicely done, easy to understand and very appropriate expression, I felt. The author does not mince words and addresses many common, self defeating behaviors and how to become more aware of them for positive change.
