The robotic narrator destroys the message.

Written by one of the greatest contributors you the success on my life, this value of this book is severely damaged by the unemotional, disconnected, robotic nature of the narrator/reader. Had to listen several times too get the true value from the writer.

Great book, WOEFUL narration

Hendricks work is wonderful with so much depth and honesty.

How on earth can the woeful narration get off first base?! It’s soooo bad!! What is audible thinking? He continually puts full stops where they don’t exist!t It often sounds quite bizarre.

Nonetheless I’m persevering for the sake of the content.... but boy is it hard!

I would love it if it could be re recorded so that I can feel free to recommend it to others!

The Content Outshines the Narrator

The narrator is almost robotic, not my taste at all. This is especially troubling due to how excellent the content is. Such a stark contrast.

Trite

Mindless faddle of an author overjoyed with himself and his accomplishments. Nothing new to be gleaned here.

Narrator is a bit of a goober but good stuff.

You might find the narrator a little bit of a goober to listen to but the content is great. Highly recommend this book for anyone looking to improve their personal relationship with the self as well as others.

Brought awareness and peace

To live consciously is to be aware of your thoughts and feelings, embrace them, enjoy them (both the good and bad) and let them pass. Holding on to things causes many problems. That’s the key insight I received along with many others. I’m feeling great from it.
