Intense and moving

This book is packed with content worthy of ongoing thought and and analysis. His courageous self revelation is inspiring and full of hope, with challenges to future work on myself! The Trump angle was woven in deftly with the influence of our personal trauma. This author is very smart and insightful. The book attacks the question of life from yet another direction and dialogue but with an underlying message shared by many disciplines. I enjoyed it and it will be with me now.

Quick, insightful read

Loved this book. I was reluctant to read any further books on Trump besides Mary Trump's book, but this one was included in my membership so I decided to give it a try. A lot of what Mary Trump wrote about Trump shows up here, like his relationships (or lack there of) with his children and his cheapness when it comes to money. But this book also offers Schwartz' path to redemption, which was a nice touch.

Inspiring

Lessons from a human. A raw introspection, beautifully told and courageous. I thank the author for his honest recollections and his ability to share his lessons and inspire the listener to examine our own possibilities for forgiveness.

Dealing with the Devil

After hearing Mr. Schwartz's confession so to speak, he probably would find life more enjoyable over all if he could just forgive his mother and move on. I've personally found that some faith and hope work wonders.

Meh

Not for me, I tried to get engaged, but just couldn't. It is a short listen though, so if you're interested in the topic, it's a quick one.

Vulnerability and dare devil honesty

One man’s spiritual rags and riches mirrors many of us who are on the similar path, yet still haunted by unraveling emotional trauma in our psyche. Honestly it’s not to project to our parents , Trump or any one else. They are just mirrors to evoke ‘uncooked seeds’: our evolutionary genetic make up. Meditation is a kind of regress therapy; if we could all regress our wound beyond this generations, we found our answer. The author explores this unconscious path in such a brutal honesty fashion that inspires me. I completed reading in one day & cant help it going back listening it again & again. Re-listening his work brought so much clarity to my own life journey. Thank you

Somewhat interesting but not currently relevant

This Audible Original provides limited insight to current events. It is an interesting story but does not expose Trump as fully as the hype leads one to believe.

Soul searching

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this deep dive into the soul. Very thorough view into the life of the author. It described how so many things big and small shaped his life and not always for the good. It also described his relationship with Trump from beginning to end. It was at times like listening to my own life with was familiar but uneasy. I will actually take a lot away from this story and try to apply some of the methods to my own life for a positive change.
