Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Gosh, this book...all I could think of was I can't wait to listen to this again! This book is honestly life changing _ if you only purchase one self-development book make it this one!

What did you like best about this story?

everything. The narrator was a little too sugary however and there were a few religious references BUT they were bearable considering the volume of life skills.

disappointing

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I only managed to listen for an hour...I think if you are clueless about human interaction eg. how to smile etc this book could be worthwhile. I wasn't looking for advice on how to fake conversations by smiling in a certain way etc. I'll be returning this book

Would you try another book written by Rick Hanson and Richard Mendius or narrated by Alan Bomar Jones?

In my decision to read any further books by Rick Hanson I will firstly listen to an excerpt before purchase, I do have some on my wish list, I am not put off the author as yet, I have read many good reviews on his work. Regarding the narration, I found the tone so utterly boring I could not listen to this book more than once, his tone coupled with the numerous references to the hippocampus, cerebral cortex blah blah blah honestly was mind-numbingly monotonous ( like I said, should have listened to an excerpt before purchase)

What will your next listen be?

Currently, I am listening to the Mastery of Self by Miguel Ruiz, will follow this up with some more Pema Chodron & Stephanie Dowrick ( I love to listen!)

Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Bomar Jones’s performances?

I will not, no offense Alan

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I didn't love the book however, it was interesting to learn about the primitive brain

Any additional comments?

While this book was not to my taste it may well suit someone who isn't as spiritually minded
