Not for audio

This book has several exercises that are hard to follow with the narration. Also, the narrator is so monotone that it makes it hard to focus with out continually losing concentration on the story.

Not suited to audiobook

This book is really more of a workbook and really isn't suited to the audiobook format. I wish I'd known this before buying it. I think I'd still like this book but in the print format.

Wonderful!

Where does The Happiness Animal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's one of my favorites by far. I've listened to quite a few audiobooks, and I would have to say The Happiness Animal is definitely among my top 5.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Happiness Animal?

I can't pick a specific moment that stood out the most to me, but I loved when the author shared about his personal experiences and the lessons he took from them. I love a book that I feel I can relate to, and that's what made it most memorable for me.

Have you listened to any of Will Jelbert’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, but I may do so in the future.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I found myself not wanting to put my headphones away the entire day.

Any additional comments?

This was one of the best "self-help" books i've had the pleasure of listening to. I recommend it to anyone who wants to find their way to true happiness (who wouldn't want that?).

Reading with the microphone in his mouth

I am sure there is merit to this book but the narration is SO terrible, the sound so poorly balanced that I couldn't persevere.
