Long Long lists.

Not sure why this is called 101 Essays. Just long lists of thoughts. If you need some Inspiration might help. But best to listen while sitting and you can take notes.

could be better

good material but way too brief and very repetitive. she could have elaborated more on important points instead of repeating the same thing multiple times.

She plants seeds that blossom into fruitful thoughts

I enjoyed Brianna’s fresh take on many areas in life; excellent for late night work sessions or road trips. Deep thinking and common sense beautifully crafted into a book.

A different perspective

Absolutely love this book. I have the audiobook, kindle, and hard copy. This has changed me and given me a different perspective. This book has helped me evaluate and really think and get to root cause of why I think the way I do. This book is worth every word. I was legit sad when it ended, I love her wisdom and the insight she provides.

Not for audio listening

Good book, but not a good listen type book. This book needs to be absorbed only in print.

Changed thinking

The book really is full if truths that everyone doesn’t realize. It has spoken the things my heart feels and has elaborated what my mind couldn’t. I would always love this book and would recommend it to the people I love.

A bunch of lists???

This book started out really good and I did enjoy large chunks of it. It definitely has great insights and it gets you thinking and analyzing yourself and your life. What I didn’t like about it was that so many chapters were just lists. Not even with any commentary or analysis, just lists of things to think about. That part got old because it doesn’t follow a thought and get deep. After a while it just feels like endless lists of reasons/questions/thought-provoking statements.

principles should be taught in schools

Excellent book. Too much cussing

This was an excellent book. I enjoyed the format and it has a lot of great subjects to think about. I wish I could recommend this book to my family but I can’t because she added SO MUCH unnecessary and out of place four letter words and G.D. Cussing. It was so off pudding and unnecessary. I don’t understand why she decided to do that.

Garbage

Narration like she’s too bored to talk to life forms she considers below her (vastly inflated) intelligence. Utter nonsense so much so that instead of just moving on I actually bothered getting a refund of about £3 as a protest.

Thinking of the best

This is a very useful guide for journaling your own thoughts by reflecting on what author shares about life. I truly enjoyed it. It's simple straightforward and from the heart.

Comforting and challenging

Absolutely loved this. Whilst repetitive at times, this is a collection of essays and thoughts so this is forgiven. I know I shall regularly revisit these wise words. One of the best things I’ve listened to in a long time .

I was already changed

around 80 of what was in here I have tried to follow and believe for the last 40 years of my life. it wa recommended to me because of my thoughts and believes. good to know I am on the right path. well narrated, although some parts are a little repetitive. the voice was fitting for the subject matter.
