Very insightful.

This book was a requirement for one of my graduate courses. I decided to get the audio book because I tend to comprehend this format better than simply reading text.

I must say this book is very insightful. The author is the narrator, and he has a great voice. It isn't dull, nor is it annoying. He also reads at a pace that you can understand. Plus the author makes you feel as if he is speaking directly to you.

I really identified with several of the steps, but there were one or two that had a huge impact. One of them were "Act like an Ant." Yes, it sounds funny, but when you get to this section, you will surely see why it may be life changing.

I have the hard copy of this book, and have referred to it often. This is not just a boring book about the bible, although there are a lot of references to parts of it. The minor references are not offensive, and is suitable for everyone. Get this audio book if you're looking for a change in your life.

Enjoy!

Great Life Advice - Must Read

I am very skeptical of self-help books so I was weary of getting this audiobook. I have read too many "you can do it, you can make your dreams real!" books. This is not one of them.

This book is like a manual for life. You may not find all 9 "things" to be new, or inspiring or even useful, but I am pretty sure you will learn a thing or two that will make the book worth your while.

The narration is excellent, there are plenty of examples. Overall an enjoyable read.

Amazing book

What did you love best about 9 Things You Simply Must Do?

It is so 'real'. He gives so many examples of which almost anyone can find ways they can relate to. I was fully engaged every time I listened to it. I've downloaded several audiobooks over the past few months, and this was one that I couldn't wait to get in the car and listen to on my commute too and from work.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

"Play the Movie" - if you keep going now, what's your life going to be like? If you make changes, what's it going to be like? Very insightful.

Any additional comments?

A must read for anyone struggling with wanting more out of life and wanting to 'better' yourself. This was the first of the author's books that I've read. I look forward to reading (or listening) to more. His voice is perfect as the narrator as well. By far, even the best voice I've heard in an audiobook. Just real, calm, and smooth.

Thank you!

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!

Amazing!!!!

Would you listen to 9 Things You Simply Must Do again? Why?

No.

Everything in the book moved me.
