Pep Talk

I was expecting more but this is a bunch of unpractical pep talks which you can find plenty of videos on youtube.

Feelings of joy & caring as Mike Dooley read this!

I have many of Mike Dooley's books and "read" them all in the conventional way, myself. I chose to purchase "A Beginner's Guide to the Universe" on Audible to have it handy on my listening devices (laptop and iPhone) as I traveled. I truly made the right choice as the love for his daughter is brought out clearly in this Audible version. [Although I later did purchase a hardcover version to share with others.]
Mike shares so much wisdom about living a happy life -- for adults and children. Mike is a visionary who shares what he learns with all of us, so we may pass it on. A book I can listen to over and over again.
I highly recommend this book to those ready to take charge of their own life.

Sorry Mike

I struggled to finish this one and only did so because I love a lot of your other stuff. Simpky too many repetitions but I'm sure your daughter will like it

Light and happy

I started off not liking this so much, it's a different style to my norm. But by the end, I was sad to see it go. I will definitely listen again. It has some lovely little life reminders.
