NOT THE BOOK

I got this audiobook because this title is required reading for a class I am taking but this is NOT THE ACTUAL BOOK. I am disappointed that I wasted an audible credit AND had to purchase the physical book. PLEASE change the description to note that this is an abridged version of the book. And change the picture!

Always puts me to sleep, but try to pay attention

Very Good! Easy to listen to, practical advice for transforming your life into a more free and happy life. This audio version is missing some parts from the real book which is a bummer.

This is NOT the book

Yes, that's the book title, and yes, that's the cover of the real book. However, this is not an audio version of the book. Very disappointing...

Not the same that the paper copy

Amazing book, i loved his teachings and the delivery was so easy to follow, now my only complain is that it is not the same that the paper copy. It would be really useful to have this distinction clear.

This book blew my socks off!

I took so much from this book. It cracks you open and encourages you to look deep inside. This is soul stuff, spiritual stuff, and everyday life stuff. You will be inspired to evaluate your life and heal and love and enjoy life's beautiful trippy ways.

A flawless Diamond; a great, brief, spiritual treasure

What an incredible and very profound, yet brief explanation of the correct path for a proper spiritual life. Most will discover, this is obviously a true gem and needs the most thoughtful consideration, for at least a hundred times.

I definitely will read/listen to many more of his works, to be sure. May love & happiness, peace and joy be with you forever, wherever you are. (Also, I must say, that I have seen your photograph and completely agree with H.H. the Dali Lama: please gain some weight! — I hope you will live to be a VERY long life; you’ve got so very much to teach, a suffering and needy world!)

Thank you,

Enjoyed but disappointed

I enjoyed the book...found voice very easy to listen to. My disappointment is that it doesn’t state, in the description, that this is an abridged version of the book.

Simply put

Jack Kornfield has a deep understanding of spiritual teachings. He’s able to elegantly present these teachings in ways which make sense to modern day. Whether this is your first book on spirituality or if your a seasoned practitioner, this book is wonderful to keep in your personal toolbox.

Enlightening guide to spiritual life

Jack draws upon his Buddhist learnings to give a practical way of discovering your own spiritual understanding while living a modern life.



Many books about spiritual development are somehow detached from bringing the spiritual ideals that you discover into your everyday life. This book helps the reader use meditation as a tool for self discovery and development that extends to our entire lives and not restricted to the moments of insight that we all have from time to time.



A really interesting book and Jack's calm and clear narration really help with digesting the ideas he puts forward.



This is full of fascinating insights.

Not his best.

I've listened to a few of Jack Kornfield's books & have to say I found this a little boring. Maybe I've listened to too many? I don't know. Cannot fault Jack's soothing narration as always but for some reason this one just didn't grab me.
