There are some superb and thought provoking quotes and texts within.
I would have like to have heard more on responding in a fashion that can not be used against oneself - for example if people are making judgements on ones manners, not asking for permission can or has been used against me .
"It is not the book!"
This was very disappointing. This is not the book. It is Wayne talking and recapping the book.
"Exactly what I needed"
Really made me realize how much I have had a victim behavior all my life up to now. We really have the power to change and make things better for ourselves. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in taking back the power in their lives to become more in control and be centered on themselves instead of what other people think. It really changed the way I see myself and the power I have to make my life what I want it to be :)
"Absolute Truth!! Amazing and eyeopening!"
Yes, every single friend I have has received a copy of this book at one point or another. It is absolutely life changing!
"What You Think of Me is None of My Business" is another great "freedom giving" book in this light.
This book will transform your view and outlook on life and bring you a completely different and renewing filter for decision making.
"Short and sweet"
Dr Dyer's voice is almost melodic and every time his narration comes to an end, I'm always sad and want more. The nuggets are so profound that its such a shame that its so short
Could he update the entire book and put it up on audible?
"Soooooooo helpful....great listen for KIDS"
Get this in your kids' ears!! So very helpful for anyone who'll listen. Wayne dyer is genius
"Life changing inspiration"
The best part of "Pulling your own strings" is the moment the old You dies and the new You is born. Congratulations on your first step toward growth!
teaching people who to treat you without words
Thank you, Wayne Dyer!
"Great lesson for a happier life..."
Another home run from Dyer...get this along with Your Erroneous Zones and you have a great base for liv9ng happy, effective, and free...
Great material on personal responsibility, and using boundaries to assert oneself. The3 recording was short and sweet, and I will definitely listen to it again and again.
The narration was a bit like an interview, with many uhh's and ahh's. Unusual, and it deterred a bit from the book; but overall I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about assertiveness, and stepping out of the victim mentality.
I actually expected to learn some things about life & relationships! Instead, I only heard how Wayne Dyer just doesn't give a shit about anything!....and how he can justify why he doesn't.
He sounds like he came from the same idiotic universities that Timothy O'Leary & Dr. Spock learned their BS idiology.
When Dyer mentioned on how he liked Jimmy Carter's response to a campaign question, I knew that he was a "Closet Lib-tard"! According to him, go ahead and do anything and everything you ever wanted to do in life, and don't ever be bothered by it.
This audio book is DEFINITELY NOT WORTH BUYING!!!!
