Smooth Flow of Beautiful Content

This was the first audio book I’ve listened to in many years and it’s motivated me to start listening to audio books more.

The flow and pace is beautiful and provides much room for comprehension.

Questions that a listener may have are usually answered within the same minute they may arise.

The structure was perfectly laid out and provided a basis for the next chapter and/or topic.

I was able to get in 1.5 hours of listening time on a average daily and on my day 2, it was about 6 hours. It was just that good. Every few sentences made me want to listen even more.

This audiobook is amazing. It has a smooth flow with beautiful content that felt like meditation itself.
