I found the parable boring. A sting of cliches that was weaved into a hard to believe story. I enjoy both self help advice and parables but this was the worst of both worlds instead of the best.

Understanding not just how AI will impact the future of work but to ensure we build in the humanistic aspect was enlightening. What started out as a book on AI ended up a book about love. Highly recommend you read this to understand how they could and should co-exist.

People buy from people.

This book is a powerful reminder that despite all the advances in technology in social media old skool still works.

Carlos used his story telling to great effect to demonstrate what works today and to give a glimpse of the future of social media.

a great book for anyone trying to improve the social part of their social media strategy.

his enthusiasm makes it work

Well researched, funny and articulate. thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and it gave me a whole new understanding of alternative ways to think about happiness and what that means to different people.

A great breakdown of a really important subject

I really enjoyed this book and there was some great practical advice to follow. I thought towards the end that it ran out of steam and did repeat a few phrases. overall a good read.

way too short.

barely scratched the surface and nowhere near in depth enough to be considered good value or to recommend

Would you try another book written by Jerry Hicks and Esther Hicks or narrated by Jerry Hicks?

I love the audio clips on Youtube from Esther Hicks so was quite excited to get this audiobook. Big disappointment. No offence but Jerry doesn't do the words justice - I much prefer Esters voice, tone and delivery. But worse than that this Part 1 give almost nothing of value. Apparently there is a 20 point guide referred to at the end of the is book but you have to purchase part 2 to get it. Personally I feel that it could have all be contained in the one audio book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jerry Hicks and Esther Hicks ? Why or why not?

No because I felt that the Part 1 didn't give enough value

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His delivery is completely different to Esther. She is the voice that I am used to hearing.

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

Disappointed.
