The story of Charlie and the chocolate factory is one that almost everyone has watch from the classic movie, but I had never read the book. I listened to the original novel by Dahl with my two daughters for the first time and we all loved it! The narrator is great, does a good job telling the story, not the strongest voice performer but does a great job telling the story in an engaging way.

Peterson is writing a book with a crucial underlying premise, that mindfulness and emotional self-awareness is foundational to healthy parenting. Unfortunately, while Terrassa are great ideas in this book, I'm distracted away from them by her clear bias towards Tibetan culture. In the same way I'd be strongly turned off by a book written with a clear ethnocentric bias towards US or Western culture, she idealizes these cultures, advocating sweeping claims of superiority. Very disappointing to me, as a therapist who is also a Buddhist practicioner I was eager to learn more from her on the topic. I'd recommend Parenting from the inside out, by Dan swivel over this book

Timeless spiritual insight

Would you consider the audio edition of Celebration of Discipline to be better than the print version?

No, not better but I do feel that I've enjoyed the print version more having had the audio to listen to and reinforce the print.

What about Richard Rohan’s performance did you like?

Smooth and easy to follow
