I can't even begin to describe my thoughts and feelings about this book and its narration without somehow ruining the discovery of the treasure within. I urge you to find this out for yourself. You won't be disappointed - especially if you're Australian.

I really enjoyed this tale. Great characters, full storyline and fascinating, historical settings. I highly recommend it.

I'm really enjoying this book and expect I will continue to do so but one thing I would have appreciated is downloadable reference material such as the tables mentioned on pages 14 and 15 which would be very useful information if I could access it.

18 minutes in and I'm over it

It appears this book is all about gender bashing. Yawn. While it no doubt goes on to prove that point, I'm not interested in a diatribe of condescension. It's the pot calling the kettle black in the first 18 minutes and I'm already over it. The smarmy narration suits the subject matter.

A daily dose of Eckhart

How can I review something so transformative? Eckhart has such a gentle, light-hearted yet nuanced way of opening my eyes to the step back, into the self which observes each present moment for the treasure it is. Simple yet profound teachings which at times seem really complicated! It's not though, I just needed to be very present to understand it at times. Highly recommend.
There is a challenging aspect which I'm not sure if I should mention (as you can treat it as part of your practice) but there is an audience member with a very persistent, loud laugh for the first two thirds of the recording.

It's the kind of book you are either inspired to study or dismiss as too complex and overwhelming...perhaps even farcical. Personally, I'll revisit with a notebook to hand but more importantly, I am now ready to stop scratching at the surface of yoga and instead, dive in.

Another great 'read'

I still boggle at Diana Gabaldon's ability to impart so much detail: historic, intimate, broad and visceral but more than this, engrossing.
Davina Porter is just brilliant! Each character holds an absolutely individual voice signature. I don't know how she does it but I'm totally convinced by it throughout.
I love these books. I usually don't last beyond half way through the third book of a series due to a lack of...something. Not the case here. I'm going straight to the next one now.

War stories are not my usual read but I was riveted and humbled by this one so perhaps I've found a new genre for me. very powerful and moving.

Impressive life story. Invaluable lessons.
