Publisher's Summary

The first edition of Radical Honesty became a nationwide best seller in 1995 because it was not a kinder, gentler self-help book. It was a shocker! In it, Dr. Brad Blanton, a psychotherapist and expert on stress management, explored the myths, superstitions and lies by which we all live. And this newly revised edition is even worse!

Blanton shows us how stress comes not from the environment, but from the self-built jail of the mind. What keeps us in our self-built jails is lying.

"We all lie like hell," Dr. Blanton says. "It wears us out...it is the major source of all human stress. It kills us." Not telling our friends, lovers, spouses, or bosses about what we do, feel, or think keeps us locked in that mind jail. The way out is to get good at telling the truth, and Dr. Blanton provides the tools we can use to escape from that jail of the mind. This book is the cake with the file in it.

In Radical Honesty, Dr. Blanton coaches us on how to have lives that work, how to have relationships that are alive and passionate, and how to create intimacy where none exists. As we have been taught by the philosophical and spiritual sources of our culture for thousands of years, from Plato to Nietzsche, from the Bible to Emerson, the truth shall set you free.

    "Absolutely embarrassing audiobook production"
    What disappointed you about Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth?

    This sounds like it was recorded on an iPhone in 40 second chunks. Incredibly hard to listen to, and amateurish.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Brad Blanton’s performances?

    No thank you.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible seriously needs to rerecord this book with a professional narrator if they expect to charge money for this audiobook.

    "Radical Mess"

    The least I expect from an audiobook is for it to be presented in chronological order. The recording is out of order and full of mistakes and poor production value. Save your money/credits for something more worthy.

    "The narrator"

    The volume changes and so the tone of the narrator's voice. Most of the time, he coughs, or makes short noises after words. He sounds bored and tired. He mispronounce words or stops the reading to sort of understand the word he is reading.
    It's a turnoff and unfortunately because his attitude on his voice is a distraction to the book itself.
    I regret spending the money

    "Loved it!!!"
    Where does Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is definitely in my top 3 books that I've bought on Audible.com.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth?

    My favorite part is when he tells why he wrote the book and what he wants from writing it. He speaks from the heart and says most things people won't say, but could, if they were being honest.


    Have you listened to any of Brad Blanton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    N/A


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not so much. I guess I was inspired at the idea of being honest and what it can do for your life, mentally, emotionally, and physically. I really related to what he was saying from where I was in my life and seeing that a lot of what holds me back or creates the way I feel is from withholding what is true for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the idea of being honest in as many areas of life as possible! It's not always going to be easy, and like they say anything worth earning takes some effort. I also like how he describes the difference between being and mind. A distinction that isn't always covered in western society, and yet from my experience is key to knowing "yourself" so you can be honest about "who you are".

    "Poor recording"
    Would you try another book from Brad Blanton and/or Brad Blanton?

    Yes. Brad Blanton is an though-provoking author. Unfortunately the recording is very bad.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    n/a


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    One part of the book repeated... It may have been a whole chapter. Also, the way it was read was difficult to listen to.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    The recording was poor.

    "The next step"

    This is probably the most complete book on personal and societal development I've experienced. I'll be starting it back from the beginning as soon as I post this review.

    Thoughts like this book are a stepping stone for society to compete. Not compete in the usual sense as in Boston's "Peace of Mind," but the Seattle Seahawk's

    "Love the book. Nearly impossible to listen to."
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brad Blanton?

    The audio levels and tone of voice are all over the place in this audible. I really don't understand how it can be that the narrator is also the author as it doesn't sound like the reader has any idea what he is reading. Many times sentences sound like they have come to an end, but then a new recording is spliced in to add a few more words. This is very disorienting and hard to follow. For example one sentence goes, "The mind is a terrible thing" then followed with a pause and what sounds like a new recording, "wasted" This sort of thing happens throughout. I will most likely get the book so I can reread on my own.

    "Save your credit and go buy the book."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The recording is by far the worst I have ever heard! Really which that I had listened to the sampler before spending the credit on it.


    Would you recommend Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth to your friends? Why or why not?

    The subject matter is indeed very interesting. The audio recording of the book however is awful.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brad Blanton?

    Anyone who could record it in such a way that it i) doesn't sound like it was recorded in the bathroom; ii) someone who doesn't sound bored by the fact that they are reading it; and iii) someone who can splice the entire audio recording together in such a way that it doesn't sound like a 5 year old put it together!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    maybe, so long as the guy reading isn't in it.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the book, don't bother listening to this version of it.

    "Extremely poor editing"
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brad Blanton?

    Anybody but him. And a better editor too. This was so poor, the author clearly did his own editing. It was very distracting.

    "How to transform your life"

    Are you fed up being stuck in your head all day.. gazing off into the distance, caught up about something that happened or is happening in your life? Are you tired of that dehabilitating feeling of powerlessness and lethargy? This book will help you out of that.. it may be hard medicine but its the one thing everyone can start with.. being honest, telling the truth and be in the here and now. There is a lot to this book and I had to re-listen to parts but all in all a must read.

    "Amazing. Liberating. Great personal work."

    It has hit me like a freight train from first listen and I am still examining the debris. Skeletons, suppressed patterns, childhood memories, past and current love affairs - all frying around like a cloud of fascinating dark matter around a supernova. And what fun it is to look into all that... New star, or soul if you prefer, born is what I feel like. Listen and give this book to anyone who matters in your life. THANK YOU BRAD BLANTON!
