it comes across more as wishful thinking than anything real. there's LOTS of conjecture and fanciful "coincidences"....I have some big questions about the history put forward as fact without any citations or explanations......and its very clear the author is very stressed about the environment. could this all be a hysterical psychological response to "the end of the planet?" maybe. but it IS beautiful. I bet Catholics hate it though. it takes serious liberties with their faith and the author would have been burned at the cross pretty quick once upon a time!

sort of ok

guys if you're newly sober this book isnt really about alcohol. it's a rambling biography, sometimes funny. often unnecessarily crude, as if it's trying to find new edgy territory. there is none.

truly beautiful account of addiction and recovery

The narration was nasally and a little hard to listen to. The physiology info in the book was great, and some good ideas. One main idea is that women should think about going on antidepressants seasonally, and give them up in summer when the days are brighter and things seem better...I dont know how the author manages patients doing this. Its hell getting used to antidepressants for lots of people, and weaning yourself off them is worse. I cant imagine anything worse than doing that two or three times a year! Crazy. Also she talks a LOT about how men are hard wired for porn and are addicted to plastic images of women, so much so that they are no longer turned on by their real girlfriends...but then goes on to assure us that "heterosexual men go wild for a real womans curves so love your body" um. No. They don't...thats the problem! Theres lots of gender stereotyping going on. Also, she starts out by saying "your emotions are normal, youre meant to be anxious and high string and people around you should understand" but...actually severe PMS is a sign of serious imbalance and anyone who has lived with it will tell you its far from ok. Take this book with a grain of salt

just buy it and listen

this book has so much information and its so amazingly interesting and Jesus all I wanna eat is veggies..ok hes big on a vegan lifestyle. but you don't have to be. there's still so much to learn and hear.

If you already know anything about money..skip it

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I feel like Tony is rebranding himself as a finance wiz, but the basic message is "the stock market always wins if you can stomach the ride" ...literally the very first thing anyone ever tells you about wealth.

Would you ever listen to anything by Tony Robbins again?

Love the guy. But too many long winded stories and examples. We arent stupid mate!

Really gorgeous

a little heavy with the hashtags and cool girl speak but also a fun and mindful guide to all things "now age". I love her perspective on stuff like sobriety and bathing like you mean it. basically this book promotes getting in touch with your own brand of magic and thats a beautoful and healthy thing. buy it.

haunting, funny, difficult, brilliant

I've read it in hard copy, thought I'd give the audio a try. This author really gets under your skin. Cant wait to see what else he does.
