Beautiful guide to improve oneself

Dr Daniel does a excellent job as a guide to help self defeating people.Most of us have some self defeating habits difficult to get rid off.The step by step approach helps us to discover ourselves and improve our lives.This book has to be listened again and again.The ideas have to be practiced with full commitment.The beauty of the course is that it can be individualised.The audio presentation clear and lucid though in some places appears to be hurrying.Thank you Dr. Daniel.

Very helpful info; need it on paper

This is very insightful and helpful information. I found myself wishing that I had it in paper format so that I could take notes and the tests, also to use the book as a reference. Dr Amen certainly has much to share that is useful for many individuals to improve our mental health as well as our relationships with others.

Not read by author

I didn’t realize it wasn’t going to be read by Dr Amen. I love Dr Amen’s work and it’s just not the same when he isn’t reading it.

What a whole new perspective

This audiobook is a God send! I have always been struggling with anxiety and self sabotaging behaviors. After listening to this, I see the many ways where I have gotten in my own way and engaged in self defeating behavior. I now feel more informed and empowered in my everyday life , thank you Dr Amen!

Excellent review from Dr. Amen.

Excellent as always. It's a good review and summary of his essential material.

As a long-time listener I prefer Dr. Amen's voice at this point.

Highly recommend in any case.

Not sure where to start...

1st thing...I couldn't get past the horrible audio quality.
2nd thing... I cuss like a sailor and there were oddly placed cuss words in here like the author just wanted to stickem in where ever she thought she could.
3rd thing... the author read this book herself and it seemed like she had never seen this book a day in her life AND seems like she NEVER USES CUSSWORDS....
The message of this book is lost in this horrible audio reading.
definitely a book you would have to purchase and read yourself instead of listening to it.

Needs a workbook, not suited to audio!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, but would recommend they get the book (if there is one) rather than the Audio version.

Was How to Get out of Your Own Way worth the listening time?

Mmm...not sure, some good points but as above a lot of the work required needs some form of writing.

Any additional comments?

Needs a workbook with it.

Purchase a hard copy

I enjoyed this book thoroughly, there were parts where I needed to write down exercises. But I have decided to purchase a copy to look back on because it was so informative.
