I read this book in conjunction with doing Dr Brewer's Unwinding Anxiety programme delivered through an app. the programme is ongoing and has already begun transforming my life.

The entire experience can only be described as evolutionary, it penetrates into all areas of my life and helps in all other spheres of growth and development. I'm going to re-read the book and several of my clients and friends have since begun using Dr Brewer's other apps.

I highly recommend this book and, if you would like to apply the knowledge, the programmes as well.

Little Lord Fauntleroy is a favorite book of my childhood, and this narrator brings it to life just in the way I would imagine it being told, before bedtime.

Absolutely loved it.

Loved that it was read by the authors.
If you like Byron Katie's Work, you'll love this book. It builds on the previous books and is a wonderful crowning jewel of BK's writings.

This book continues to change my life.
Down to the very last word in the afterword it's pure gold in value.
this book equipped me like no other with skills that I was severely lacking, and showed me that those skills are not something you are born with, or are raised with, but you can learn them and become a master of them in adult life.

The book doesn't only help with crucial conversations, it promotes mindfulness, patience and inner peace, which of course translates into outer peace, better relationships with others and self.

I've listened to it twice already, and it's a definite reference book for decades to come.

Thank you so much to the authors for writing this gem. And for making it audible :)

I'm beyond thrilled to have listened to this book. it's incredibly insightful. and just as other Alain De Botton books, it is so thought provoking yet never prescriptive.
It helps put things in perspective.
all in all, a life changing read

It is a great book.Pavel's authentic no nonsense narration makes the audible version a pleasure to listen.
As a Russian kettlebell coach, I can say that Pavel's work is groundbreaking and foundational. He inspires, educates and entertains and his books are a must read for all aspiring kettlebell enthusiasts, and especially trainers.

great book!
Alain De Botton is a very eloquent writer and a good reader.
this book puts things in perspective. I really like that Alain never presumes to do the thinking for you. His work is never prescriptive. Instead he provides a wealth of perspectives that help you think clearer and make your own decisions.
A very easy and thought-provoking read.

i found this audio book interesting, helpful and motivating. Dan uses great analogies and teaches simple and powerful concepts of connecting via conversation. I will definitely pay more attention to when I use my invitations and when it's time to unleash those inspirations.

I'm rereading it as soon as I've finished, right now! I never wanted this book to end.
the most thought provoking, funny, wise and skillful writer I have come across in years.
the reader is really good too! I was worried that after listening to How To Be A Woman read by Caitlin Moran herself, I'd be ruined for anyone else reading her work. however this reader conveyed her essence really well.
all in all, I'm grateful to be alive in the same century as this author.
