The immediate benefit is Andrew’s narration, which is conversational in tone, giving room between words and phrases, allowing the listener time to pleasurably comprehend. Here is a thoroughly experienced explorer of the inner and outer realms. A joy to study.

Andrew’s commentary on spiritual development is light-hearted, playful and transparent. As a multiple decade meditator, I gained fresh ways to understand and benefit from the dream and waking states.

As anyone who's done a lot of work on themselves knows, ego is the ultimate control freak. As such, many parts of this book will frighten, but the underlying benefit of having control over the dream state and mind is something the ego can get behind.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Removing her high school valley girl tone.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Certainly not Shonda.

Would you be willing to try another one of Shonda Rhimes’s performances?

Absolutely not.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Year of Yes?

Out of the gate focus on the benefit of the listener, not Shonda's egomaniacal self.

Any additional comments?

A condescending pile of crap. Her TED is great. This book not so much.
