Captivating Truths!

This book gives some great insight on self-love, forgiveness and how to be gentle with ourselves. While listening to this book I will admit that I was listening from a place of guilt, shame, hurt, and betrayal. But it helped me to take a look at myself and see what pain I was inflicting on myself. It cause me to dig deep and look at all of my relationships and how they were nothing but self reflection of either love or fear.

Banal

I can summarize in 3 sentences what Holder takes a whole book to say: We are, by nature, love and loveable. We forget this and need to remind ourselves of its truth. If we remember this and we become love to ourselves and others, love will find us.

He adds a lot of fluff and some anecdotes, which puff up the content, but it isn't substantive or revolutionary. It's like taking a bite of an ice cream cone only to realize it's cotton candy. Don't bother if you're looking something real. This is just foam.

This books is great and should be combined with

This books is great and should be combined with Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges by Amy Cuddy. The first will teach you why you need to love yourself, how it will impact your life and why we need to let go of things in our lives. You will also get great steps to apply it. However, I found when I add the steps from Amy's book you really get a power push in the right direction! Try them and see what results you get!

The world needs to read/listen to Loveability!

Excellent book! Helps you understand where love comes from, and how to get back in touch with love when you feel you may have lost it. It's changed my perceptions on many things in life. It's a must read!
Robert Holden does his own narration. It is outstanding, so easy to listen to, and so easy to relate to. I've seen him live, and he is just as amazing in person!

Simply Life Changing, if not THE answer I've searc

Where does Loveability rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As I was saying, Simply Life Changing, if not THE answer I've searching for my entire life. I have purchased a copy of this book for each person in my family and have demanded we begin a family book club! I'm uncertain if THIS book being THE answer for me in learning how to be at peace in a not so peaceful world, is THIS book alone, or if this book really just solidified the path I took but it is AMAZING! I listen to audio books as much as possible which isn't as much as I would like but if I didn't have audible in my life, I'd miss all the amazing books packed full of knowledge and adventure (:

What did you like best about this story?

I LOVED how the book is read by Robert Holden, Ph.D. himself, mostly, probably because of his British accent (: But mostly, I really enjoyed how he explains step by step what loving your self or self love or Lovability really is and how to practice it. It isn't just relatable stories and wisdom, it's steps you can begin implementing within only a few pages.

Have you listened to any of Robert Holden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first, but will not be my last!

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

We must begin to honor our Soul's without self judgement.

Any additional comments?

the secret to life is to speak life. I am so grateful for where I am today. Many live their entire lives never reaching the peace on earth that I have found. Yes, it all comes down to loving your self at the most basic level. Even if you are a christian. Do you Love God? Do you believe we are made of God? Then why can't you love yourself? Why can't you love the creation of God, that is you. And all things created? Everything that exists today, exists because God Created it or the it that has the same ability to create. It all comes back to Love. If like attracts like, then why wouldn't you remain in Love, always?

life transforming book

this book will transform your life. It did that to me and I am so grateful to Robert Holden that finally someone is explaining what is really love. How important it is to love yourself. I am 43 years old and only now I realise it was my ego and not my true self who has feared love for so long. Really a recommendation for all who suffers with low self image, for all cancer patients, for all depressed people.

Just lovely! x

Loveability is a book which had me hooked from the moment I started listening. This book has a candid and direct approach to love, and is narrated openly and truthfully by Holden who gives lots of useful advice on how to love myself and others from a place of authenticity. Holden's affirmations "I am loveable" and one I adapted from the book was "I forgive myself" are simple but incredibly affective in helping shift any mindset towards love and gratitude. Just lovely, thank you! x

Some nice lessons but too much spiritual stuff.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I enjoyed some elements of the book but all the god and spirit stuff was superfluous.

What could Robert Holden have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Made this more practical and accessible to atheists as well as theists. The book assumes the listener to have a belief in some sort of higher power.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

It was pleasant enough. Story is not an appropriate category for non-fiction and one which I would prefer Audible to make optional.

Was Loveability worth the listening time?

I am glad I listened to it but I spent a lot of time cringing and getting irritated by all the god stuff.

Loved It

I had no idea what this was about, I just searched for 'love' in Audible. It's opened my eyes to so much more reading and thinking and a new way of living. I loved this so much I'm going to buy the paperback as well so I can underline all the best bits to mediate on.
