Publisher's Summary

Therapists do not and cannot give answers. Explore the true nature of the therapeutic relationship, and realize that the guru is no Buddha. He is just another human struggling. Understanding the shape of your own personal ills, will lead you on your journey to recovery. Sheldon Kopp has a realistic approach to altering one's destiny and accepting the responsibility that grows with freedom.

    "Too Short"

    Having read & enjoyed the book some time ago I was looking forward to hearing the audio version. To say that this book is "abridged" is an understatement. I'm sure that if there was a Cliff Notes version of this book it would contain 10 times the information than this audio version.

    ""AAA"bridged version"

    The audio book is toooo short. It's a really "A"bridged version of the book. Good material. But not enough for a book.

    "Very little substance"
    What disappointed you about If You Meet the Buddha On the Road, Kill Him?

    I found very little of substance here... lots of long, drawn out stories followed by an attempt to draw a lesson or piece of information to learn from, but mostly it falls flat. To be fair this edition is SO abridged that I wonder if the actual book would deliver a totally different message. But for this audiobook, thumbs down.


    What didn’t you like about MIchael McConnohie’s performance?

    The music in the background was both distracting and made the narrator hard to hear.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Annoyed at the lack of real substance.

    "Good, but not great."

    Good ideas, optimism intermixed with western, eastern philosophy. The psychotherapist as the flawed healer. I found the stories and text interesting, but lacking in depth. The music was distracting. The narrator made the rather sophomoric prose come alive.

    "Excellent"

    Kopp is inspirational and deep in his writing. I enjoyed it. His experience with illness made him both bitter and grateful.

    "Inspiring"
    Would you consider the audio edition of If You Meet the Buddha On the Road, Kill Him to be better than the print version?

    This book really enhanced my perspective on spirituality and about being human. Wonderful stories and a learned author. If you feel a little lost, this book will easily get you back home.

    "Abridged"

    I was disappointed this was an abridged version. I think this needs to be made clearer.
