Publisher's Summary

Difficult relationships and challenging circumstances all come down to one thing: drama. In this groundbreaking audiobook, Doreen Virtue guides you through the process of determining your Drama Quotient. You'll discover how much stress you are unnecessarily tolerating and absorbing from other people and the situations you find yourself in.

Doreen explains the physiological reasons why you can become addicted to high-drama relationships, jobs, and lifestyles, and how to heal from this cycle. You'll come to understand why traumatic events from the past may have triggered post-traumatic symptoms, including anxiety, weight gain, and addictions - and you'll learn natural and scientifically supported methods for restoring balance to your body and your life.

Doreen shows you how to:

  • Deal with relatives, friends, and co-workers who are "hooked" on drama
  • Assess your own level of drama addiction
  • Stop allowing negativity in your life
  • Relieve stress and bring about inner peace

Go on an overall Drama Detox to clear away negativity and let your light shine through!

Fantastic book

This book was recommended by someone I know. I didn't think it was going to be appropriate, however, it was a great book with clear information that helps to understand different aspects of being around negative and drama people.

The audible service was quite bad. I paused the audio but then playing it again was difficult. It just hung on the part where I stopped. I had to close the window and reopen then play again. I finally ended up downloading and playing on iTunes which was better than playing on a browser.

overwhelming.

some good information, but over all overwhelming. acording to the author life is toxic and creates histamine reactions. the book is all about consuming to combat histamine. less about sparkle and more about diet.

Doreen 😍

great book about PTSD. most people will relate to some or most of this subject. at one point or another we have all dealt with some degrees of PTSD. do not be misled by the somewhat corny book title. it is worth the time to read or listen to this book at least twice.

Complete UNDERwhelming

What disappointed you about Don't Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle?

Way too much detail & simplistic. It was difficult to listen to. Perhaps good for an absolute beginner to the path but for a seasoned explorer not anything new and a lot of repetition.

Has Don't Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not from the genre but I will think again before buying Doreen Virtues books. Some of her more recent books come across as just pushing out material vs. quality. I completely appreciate & respect her just not this book, especially.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Doreen Virtue?

Not sure.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Good for an absolute newbie maybe.

This Audio book has great insights and professional recommendations. I felt like Doreen was a good friend speaking to me in my home. One of her best works yet! I was inspired to make big changes in my life yet they feel so easy and natural. Wonderful!

Wonderful and Insightful

This book explains post traumatic stress, drama addiction and the effects of both on behavior and relationships in a very simple and concise way. Additionally, the author provides suggestions to approach and deal these issues in a variety of therapeutic ways--most of which are accessible to anyone. This book has helped me.

Great for Beginners

What would have made Don't Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle better?

I love Doreen and her works. I do have some input for the audiobook:

In the audio version, it is very difficult to listen to the lists. Most audio books offer a free PDF when they have a lot of "data" in them. This is especially true with books going over a diet. Listening to someone read a list of items is not easy.

If you are a beginner in this area (motivation, etc), you will like this book. Most of the concepts are for those who are new to her works, or are new to this concept.

What was most disappointing about Doreen Virtue’s story?

Listening to her read lists of items that were very long in the audiobook.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She didn't sound happy. This was probably due to reading data that is not the best suited for the audiobook format.

What character would you cut from Don't Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle?

none

Not remotely inspiring

I had a hard time listening to this book it was less about actually keeping your inner light shining then about not dealing with pollutants in your area including like toxic people and like carpets and went into a in depth how you should have carpets and all kinds of other stuff it was not that great

The title is misleading

I have read this authors work before and it has always been inspiring but this book has lost its sparkle. Just list after list of stuff/problems/situations and very therapy based and although I'm sure the authors intent was to inform and provide resources... it didn't inspire me
