Publisher's Summary

In Excuses Begone! Dr. Wayne W. Dyer reveals how to change lifelong, self-defeating thinking patterns that prevent you from living at the highest levels of success, happiness, and health. You may know what to think but find it terribly difficult to change thinking habits that have been with you since childhood.

This business of changing habituated thinking patterns is really the business of eliminating the same old tired excuses. People are forever using excuses and defending those excuse patterns as if they were actually true. But there are no excuses worth defending ever, even if they've always been part of your life.

This audiobook represents Wayne's effort to help anyone whose self-defeating thoughts are persistently present to learn how to discard those old thinking habits - and discover the infinite possibilities of life!

Life changing book

I am a big fan of Dr. Dyer's work. I bought this book with the idea that it may help me get off the couch and get things done. Instead, it has changed my whole outlook on my life and my priorities. It is such a deeply, thought provoking and uplifting work, I also bought the hardback version to keep and reread. Dr. Dyer has such a way with conveying deep concepts in a natural, calming and reassuring voice, that it is hard to stop listening to him. You owe it to yourself to listen to this book!

Excellent book

I thought this was an excellent book, but I do have one complaint: I thought Dyer read too fast at times. I wanted to relax, listen, and take his words in, but there were many passages where he read so fast I felt tense trying to catch everything he was saying.

A Well Done Work

Wayne Dyer's Excuses Begone offers a way to improve your life as well as those of the people you know and meet. So often authors write many words without an actual method to follow. Dyer offers a method to make change for the good happen in your life. He lays it out clearly. An example, "if you have the choice, be kind, rather than right". Overall this work is a very enjoyable mix of spiritualism and rational realism that can be applied immediately. It is well worth several listens.

Another Amazing Book from Wayne Dyer

This book gives you complete clarity on the roadblocks and excuses that are preventing you from living your best life. It is understandable, simplistic (though backed by impressive research) and most of all practical. Dr. Dyer gives REALISTIC approaches to eliminating roadblocks (excuses) in one's life. I highly recommend this book, if one approach can help you or make you think differently, it has paid for itself ten fold. He is also amazing to see in person if you ever get the chance. Bravo Hay House for continuing to provide the world with books authored by intelligent, thought provoking people. And no, I do not represent Hay House or any of it's affiliates, the book is just that good.

Life changing

I believe this book will change my life forever. It certainly has motivated me to follow the instructions in the book. I had read the hard covered book and purchased the audio book for continued listening while in my car or office. My clients,my family and my friends are benefiting from my reading this book. I truley feel This book can change your life for the better,if you let it.I believe in this book so much that I have bought one for my Daughter and one for my brother. I dare say I will be sending more as I discover people in need of EXCUSES BEGONE.

A valuable purchase and addition to my life...

The title says it, and the content backs it up. If you have read Dr. Dyer's other books, this one gives the maturity you would expect from a man of his experience and wisdom. He is very good at getting out the bad in your life (and head) and clearing out space for the good to come in. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to make positive changes in their life.

I gave it four stars because I am not a fan of his reading, and I think another reader of the audio could have made this even better.

Audobook begone!

In the interests of full disclosure, I should say I am a fan of self-help books and disposed to be positive about them. Unfortunately, I gave up on this one, despite willing myself to finish it. It was frustrating too because I felt some of the core ideas were sound. However, the invocation of, for me, bogus science to back up the ideas became gradually more and more intrusive. I don't think there is any need to postulate mysterious and vague forces and fields which, despite the impression given by the author, have certainly not become an accepted part of established peer reviewed science. This seems to be a growing trend in books of this type - "The Secret" has a lot to answer for. If you liked that book, then no doubt this one will work for you as well. If not, I would steer clear.

you gotta love Wayne to like this probably...

I really love Wayne Dyer so I liked this book. BUT...parts are a bit far out there and seem to go on and on. It was OK for me but I think some people would might not be as tolerant. Not your typical 'practical tips' but good.

Life changing!

If you are looking for inspiration on where to go with your life and to realise that you need to live in the now, hear the words of Dr Dyer. A great orator, natural and down to earth, he helps you get to grips with how we all use excuses as reasons for us not fulfilling our potential, and living a life full of empathy and love. He has a great mellow voice too, I'd recommend it!

Another one.

Another beautiful book by Wayne Dyer. I might not be the right one to review his work, because I simply love this man. This book and many others from Dyer has given me so much inspiration. My life is more beautiful because of his work.

I have overcome heavy things with Dyer and this book just gives more mind food ;)

Thanks Wayne.

Love It

I have been following Wayne Dyer for many many years & I truly have admired him for the path he has been on & to inform us of some of the errors or changes that he has made along his path. Wayne Dyer is authentic, warming & human, this book is another one of those you have to listen or read again. I've listened to the book twice & will keep revisiting it for many years to come.
Check out Wayne Dyer movie The Shift it's a 'must have' movie to watch again & again.

A tough love approach to change

If you could sum up Excuses Begone! in three words, what would they be?

Kind, honest, empowering

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

Wayne Dyer was a wonderful, generous, gently and wise man. I miss him already and am so thankful he left behind so much good work.

Any additional comments?

This is a no nonsense book on how to face your habitual thinking and it encourages you to be truthful with yourself. I shall listen to this book many times as once is definitely not enough.<br/>

Good Sense

Really liked listening to this book on the walk to work and back - very inspiring and sets out clearly all the ways we hold ourselves back. Not sure if I can put it all into practice now but I will certainly be listening to this more than once - thought it was great. Will be looking out for more books by this author as I felt much more positive hearing how to overcome self-imposed limitations.

Pause for thought....

I have been a great fan of Wayne Dyer for some considerable years and it all began when I first read his books 'You'll See it when you Believe it' and 'Pulling your own strings'. As much as I enjoyed listening to 'Excuses Begone' this book, narrated by the great man himself, is going over work that he has written before. The book on the whole is very inspiring and I found myself suddenly thinking about things that I had forgotten from writings before and there are a few new ideas and contemplations. You will need to ponder whether you would want this lifestyle and I believe that the difficulty rating is high (although, no doubt, Wayne would consider this an excuse), but I would recommend reading it to decide for yourself whether or not Wayne is the man to teach you to reach a higher perspecive of your self being, and you will be inspired if this is the first book of Wayne's that you have read. It is do-able.

How our thoughts shape our excuses

I really enjoyed this book, it helps you understand how your thinking (shaped by your subconscious) influences the excuses you make in life to keep you where you are. It makes you aware of excuses you didn't even know you could be using.
Written and narrated beautifully by Wayne Dyer.
