Thank you Mel Robbins. This is a fabulous listen and most helpful. Even though my background is so different to all the people presented I found something of myself in common with each of them, and got such a lot out of every story. I hope you do more of these Mel - a very powerful template for terrific real
life learning experiences for your listeners.

I adore P.G. Wodehouse - he must be one of the worlds cleverest writers with the most amazing command of the English language. His works are witty and winsome - I enjoy every word. And as for Jonathan Cecil’s narration? How does one improve upon perfection? ❤️

A joy to listen

A truly fabulous story with Jonathan Cecil’s absolutely perfect narration. ‘Joy in the Morning’ and ‘The Feudal Spirit’ are my two all time favourite Jeeves and Wooster books (so far). Highly recommended to anyone who loves charming stories, exquisitely written and superbly narrated. Whilst born generations apart, Wodehouse and Cecil are a splendid team who once again provide hours of marvellous, witty and laugh out loud escapism.

Never so much fun was had!

I’ve rather enjoyed many of PG’s masterpieces bit this one is really laugh out loud. The book is wonderful and the performance by Jonathan Cecil perfect as always.

Fabulous story, unparalleled narrating, terrible audio

As with all Jeeves and Wooster stories this is another beautifully written masterpiece, equally masterfully narrated by the perfect Jonathan Cecil. Terrible audio is the only negative and the publishers really should fix that. Surely the technology is available to do such a fix post production these days.

I’ve read a lot of channeled works and there’s something about this one that just isn’t right. It feels odd to have a work dictated by beings from another planet who are so sophisticated spiritually that they can project to someone on earth, yet still have so many social and other issues in their own society. There’s such a disconnect here that makes me wonder about the level of veracity of the work. It feels at times like some not altogether very good creative writing.

I couldn’t finish this - I didn’t get past the first chapter. The narration is breathy and awful. I hope someone else picks it up to read as I’m sure some pearls of wisdom are contained within!

Hillary clearly got a rough deal during the 2016 election campaign. There are lots of reasons to rail - especially against a completely irresponsible media. But when she starts having a go at Bernie - which was just legitimate politicking - I turn off. In the end this book is quite repetitive and could have been half as long. Having said that, I like Hillary more having listened to this than before. For the 20+ odd years she has been in the public eye, she feels warmer and more human now. If she ever decides to run again I hope she brings more of this Hillary to her campaign. She’d be unbeatable.

Any additional comments?

For anyone interested in understanding more about the world around them the trilogy written by Robert Monroe is compulsory reading. These three books are beautifully written and just as beautifully narrated by Kevin Pierce. They are a pleasure to listen to. I found this, the first book quite disconcerting. Many of Mr Monroe’s experiences don’t sound Iike much fun but but his charting of his journey with such openness, sincerity and integrity is spell binding. Make sure you read this so you understand what courage Robert Monroe had as he faced into his special gift and his curiosity as he worked to develop it. Then you can read and reread books 2 & 3 as I have understanding the full context of the journey. Mr Monroe gave a gift to the world in charting his journey so bravely so that if we chose to follow we can do so with more control and awareness. What a beautiful, amazing and courageous man.

I have done a very expensive course in transcendental meditation and did not get nearly the depth of insight that I received from this book. Thank you Andy, as always for your generosity and humanity in sharing your journey. Reading this book has deepened my understanding of meditation techniques, how and why they work and this has already started to give me more out of my practice. This book, you and the Headspace app are gifts to the world. Thank you.
