Doesn't Hold a Candle to the Definitive Edition

What disappointed you about The Science of Mind: The Complete Edition?

I have the "Definitive Edition" of the Science of Mind in text form, which apparently is far superior to this "Complete Edition". My guess is that there was some copyright loophole on the "Complete Edition" which made it easier to do these recordings. The structure of the concepts is incredibly more difficult to follow in this "Complete Edition" than in the Definitive Edition. That central point aside, the person who reads in the recording delivers a really distracting and rather headache-inducing performance. I can't say that having contemplative phrases basically shouted at me in a recording induced a greater sense of receptivity.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The Glass Bead Game by Herman Hesse

How could the performance have been better?

A more pleasant vocal timbre would have been ideal. That aside, I would have settled for someone who could correctly pronounce "omnipotence" and "circumference". By the second mispronunciation of "circumference" I decided I'd finally had enough. If you want to exploit copyrights to make a book at least hire some who can correctly pronounce the words they're trying to rip off!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I cannot recommend the Definitive Edition highly enough. It is an incredible book. Unfortunately there isn't an audio version available yet, and hopefully if there ever is, it won't be done by the same people.

This origin of self improvement

I read this book and I've always heard Earl Nightingale was the father of self improvement which I believed. However, after reading this book I disagree. Written in the 1920's this book gives us all the reasons why we need to shift from a self centered life to a spiritually centered life. This is where self improvement comes into play. If you read this book you will learn why you need to work on yourself to move into a more spiritually centered life. I will recommend this book book to friends.

I didn't give the book 5 stars because at times the narration went flat and needed to be a little more lively. Just my take on it as others tell me they loved it from start to finish!

Not paced well enough yet.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Granted, I only listened to about half of this very long book. At times it was quite I interesting. But, the constant definitions for nearly any thought or action became tedious and distracting.

Impossible to follow along with the book.

I like to read along with audibles and this is absolutely impossible to follow along with the book. It does.not follow along with the book at all. i wish Audibles would name the chapters along with the chapter number as well.

In spite of the title of this book, there is absolutely NO science in this book. Don't waste your time or money.
