narration was pleasant however this book did not have anything new or anything that stood out from other similar books. It did however inspire me to simplify some of the areas in my home so that is how it earned 3 stars.
The last chapter was painful to listen to. I am all for people expressing their faith however this book focused on one specific faith with numerous bible verses and references. I think this would alienate many listeners and having it at the end of the book leaves the impression that the whole book was rubbish which really was not the case.

so relatable

This book was not exactly what I thought it would be. The title to me suggested that this book would have solutions to stop codependant behavior. This was still a great book it went deep into what co-dependant relationships look like and gave many examples. I loved hearing about other peoples stories and comparing them with my own. A great book

I was expecting a little more from this book. This book only touches on very basic Buddhist principles. While I did like the way these principals were broken down with real life examples I found myself frustrated with the line of questioning hoping that the author would choose deeper philosophical questions when faced with someone as insightful as the Dalai Lama. I would recommend reading one of the Dalai Lamas many books rather than this one.

Do not give up on this book too soon. I wasnt loving this book at the beginning but thought I would stick with it a little longer and I'm so glad I did. This book has left me feeling valued and inspired to shine my light on the world. I will listen again and again. The only negative for me was the narration as the authors accent was distracting as an Australian it was fairly obvious the author was Australian but had lived in the States for some time.

Amazing

I honestly didn't expect this book to have the effect on me that it did. Unless you have been living under a rock I'm sure you have heard the law of attraction explained by numerous sources. I watched the movie 'The secret' and I didn't like it. I thought it focused to heavily on using it to gain possessions, it was very materialistic and not for me. This book was not like that at all I loved this book so much that after this review I'm going back to listen again. This stuff really works. The changes that have happened since I began reading this book are almost unbelievable.

I don't even think I can put into words the shifts I received from this book. This book resonated with me in the way that it shone a light on inner truths I've always known. I have read so many books on this subject and this one has made the top 3. This is the first that I have finished listening to and then instantly began listening over again from the beginning.

I have attempted study of ACIM numerous times and always get lost in the text. This book is a great tool as an introduction to the course. I really enjoyed listening to the principles being broken down to relatable stories and the examples of how ACIM lessons can be applied to every day life. I rated only 4 stars as I felt this book still left me wanting more. I guess I will have to return to ACIM for that and this book has inspired me to do so.

This book was not written for me to read. In my opinion it was uninspiring and full of vulgarity and fluff. I was hoping for something that would help reconnect me with my feminine essence, the goddess within, the nurturer, the seductress but instead was encouraged to play with myself, have conversations with my labia and pray to 'the great pussy in the sky' to fix all of my problems. I'm left confused to who the intended audience is of such rubbish.

loved this book so much. I had put of reading this for so long because another book by Eckhart Tolle did not inspire me at all. This one however has lit a little fire in my heart and shifted my perspective on life entirely. This is now in top 3 books I've read EVER!!!
