Publisher's Summary

In Thrive, Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post and one of the most influential women in the world, has written a passionate call to arms, looking to redefine what it means to be successful in today’s world. She likens our drive for money and power to two legs of a three-legged stool. It may hold us up temporarily, but sooner or later we’re going to topple over. We need a third leg – a Third Metric for defining success – in order to live a healthy, productive, and meaningful life.
In this deeply personal book, Arianna talks candidly about her own challenges with managing time and prioritising the demands of a career and two daughters. Drawing on the latest groundbreaking research and scientific findings in the fields of psychology, sports, sleep and physiology that show the profound and transformative effects of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging and giving, Arianna shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplaces, and our lives.

Too much stats not enough personality!

The concept of this book is great. It began well but soon became apparent there were too many references to statistics of previous studies, which I didn’t care to know about. I was interested in what formula worked for a successful woman such as Arianna. I got what I wanted but the extra stats were unnecessary and spoilt the enjoyment of what could have been a great read/listen.

The reader can't pronounce words!

English is not the first language of the reader. She mispronounces words and it seems as though she really struggles with fluent sentences.

For a book which is 10 hours+ this results in a not very enjoyable experience.

Te content is great; the reading is appalling.

Read the book, don't listen to it!

Narrator is brilliant!

I would certainly recommend this book for anyone who wishes to take a step back from the day-to-day however I wanted to correct some of the hate for the narrator in other review. The narrator is what makes this audiobook great. She is Agapi Stassinopoulos who I believe is the sister of Arianna Huffington.

I wanted to love this but ended up loathing it

What would have made Thrive better?

The narrator has a very heavy accent - and whilst we live in a wonderful world of diversity, its REALLY hard to listen to a heavy accent in this context. As an English speaker I couldn't get into any rhythm due to the language and trying to listen was a fight. I ended up losing the battle and gave up. I spoke to others who felt the same.Also disapointed that at least some of the information is repetitive from her Sleep Revolution book that I also have - felt a little cheated with some information replicated across both. However, the intent of the book is good and maybe if I had the hard copy, or had continued, I would have felt differently.

Would you be willing to try another one of Agapi Stassinopoulos’s performances?

Unfortunately no. I found her accent too difficult to get true rhythm and enjoyment out of a book.

Annoying voice

I’ve heard so many good things about this book but I just can’t listen to her voice - it is irritating
