Some Helpful Information in This Audiobook

Something Beautiful was a pretty insightful listen. I picked up a lot of good information and helpful suggestions such as ways to be more positive and sticking to your own truths. Overall, I liked the book. Either taking it pieces at a time or as a whole, this audiobook is for the listener to learn to have a happier and healthier life.

Doing the "lifesavers" everyday to improve your day was neat with taking the first letter of the word 'savers' and doing certain exercises that correspond to each letter. I thought the playlists were interesting as well.

Rebecca Hansen's performance was good.. She spoke clearly and was easy to understand. It was a little monotone but still good. All in all this was a good listen.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this honest review.

Uplifting!

Any additional comments?

I was feeling a little blue this evening so I started listening to this story while cleaning the house and it pulled me right out of my bad mood. I love the positive, hopeful and uplifting message it delivers. The suggestions given for ways to add joy to my life were wonderful and I love the playlist of songs at the end of each chapter. Very cool idea! Rebecca Hansen's performance was just lovely. Her voice is clear, bright and if I had to describe it in just one word, it would be "HAPPY". I felt as if I was listening to a dear friend speaking to me and I couldn't help but smile. Loved this listen!

Great beginners book.

Which scene was your favorite?

I loved the suggested playlists. I look forward to checking some of these out.

Any additional comments?

This is a great book for someone who is looking to make changes in their lives. If you have read other self help/motivational books before, you may want to skip this one. It is a great book, but I had heard all of this advice before. It's more for someone who is just beginning to look into such books. Great beginner book.

A compilation of the principles of personal growth

This is a good compilation of the principles of personal growth leading to peace and happiness. If you are just starting your journey into understanding yourself and making efforts to grow beyond your life's hurdles, then this book is for you! If you are seasoned in your study and practice of the principles of personal growth, then this could be a good refresher course that pulls in wisdom from many different areas of study you normally would not find in the same place.

This book covers some basics and is not a deep exploration of the subject. However; most of the time it is the simplest things that make the most effectual change.

Something Beautiful = Something Useful

They say the journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step. Small steps best summarizes this book. Little changes. Nothing earth-shattering, which is good. Earth shattering changes never work.

Rebecca Hansen did a great job narrating. She had a nice, encouraging tone, and keeps the information coming at a good, digestible pace. Her narration made me want to come back and keep listening. I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the kind of book that I wanted to make last over a long period as opposed to a binge-listen in one sitting. It's a book that you can listen to over and over again because there are so many useful tips that you can be reminded of often. It's impossible to be in a bad mood when you listen to this book.

And that's Something Beautiful.

Not really what I was looking for. Nothing in depth. It's mostly for newbies imo. Still it's well done and enjoyable. With good narration.

Insightful, positive and helpful

What did you love best about Something Beautiful?

At first I thought it was going to be a nice summary of helpful ideas that I'd heard before, but it became more than that. Had it simply been a summary, it would have been pretty comprehensive but in the end, it got me thinking about my goals and priorities in a productive way. Most of all, it got me thinking about who I am, who I want to be, and what matters to me.

What did you learn from Something Beautiful that you would use in your daily life?

I take a lot for granted about who I am. I forget that I can change. I forget that I'm making choices. I really get lost in the daily grind. This is a reminder to be more mindful about my life. I bookmarked the playlists at the end of the chapter so that I could listen to samples of the songs to see if they were to my liking, but initially it was a bit jarring. I appreciate the author having included them once I understood how they fit in with the book, and am inspired to think more about how I can use music to reinforce my attitudes and goals.

Any additional comments?

The narrator put effort into speaking clearly, but it felt less natural and less conversational. As the book progressed, I realized that the tone of the narrator seemed to maybe speak of the formality of the author's writing/personality. There's so much of value in this book - I do wish it was presented a bit more conversationally but my tendency is to write/speak more formally too.

I received this audiobook for free. It was my choice to leave a review and I've been honest in my assessment of the recording.
