Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

A simple practical book, scripture-based, really helped me to get my mind around how much I really am truly brainwashed by media telling me I need to consume, when I realized after reading this book that it's really not what I want .... what I really want is what she shares in this book, which is to be declutter, simplify life surrounded with family and love and peace and contentment and freedom .... STOP shopping, STOP collecting.... start living.

Any additional comments?

A great read for anyone that lives in western civilization ... we can all relate!

George W. Bush, the 43rd president of the United States, has authored a personal biography of his father, George H. W. Bush, the 41st president. Forty-three men have served as president of the United States. Countless books have been written about them. But never before has a president told the story of his father, another president, through his own eyes and in his own words. A unique and intimate biography, the book covers the entire scope of the elder President Bush’s life and career.

Great to hear the story of our President's life. how he lab, how he served, how he thrived and created good times, and how he stood strong in the tough times. Also to see that from such a great leader how much you cherished and honor his family.

Terri Sjodin loves scrappy people - those who beat the odds with a blend of cleverness and fighting spirit. People who see big problems and come up with big solutions. People like the clever Girl Scout who sold 117 boxes of cookies in two hours outside a medical marijuana dispensary or the entrepreneur who turned his home into an indoor jungle to sell investors on the Rainforest Café restaurant chain.

Great series, horrible narration. Some of these books were narrated by Jack, awful, please be aware that better narration is available for this book. The reviews for Jack as a narrator were so horrible that they incurred the expense to have this series re-recorded by the original narrator Richard Ferrone, .... I accidentally downloaded this one and wasted a credit.

Would have given 5 star if it were not for the narrator, Narrator is awful, gives 30 yr old people old man voices. Gives women in their 29's old lady voices. Absolutely horrible narration. Is often shrill.

Too bad, the book would have been good as the series is great. I recommend that it be re-recorded with the Left Behind narrator.

As Singer takes you on this great experiment and journey into life's perfection, the events that transpire will both challenge your deepest assumptions about life and inspire you to look at your own life in a radically different way.

A great follow up book to The Untethered Soul. My favorites of the decade.

Through his life story of "letting go" I can only say wow, this makes one realize how internally focused we are.

Turn off that internal commentator and enjoy life's blessings and accept everything as if it is a gift from the universe.
