Publisher's Summary

An examination of the importance of self-knowledge, providing practical exercises to aid self-discovery. 

In Ancient Greece, when the philosopher Socrates was asked to sum up what all philosophical commandments could be reduced to, he replied: "Know yourself". Self-knowledge matters so much because it is only on the basis of an accurate sense of who we are that we can make reliable decisions - particularly around love and work.  

This book takes us on a journey into our deepest, most elusive selves and arms us with a set of tools to understand our characters properly. We come away with a newly clarified sense of who we are, what we need to watch out for when making decisions, and what our priorities and potential might be.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

terrible voice

I couldn't even finish this short book because this ladies voice was so mononinus she put me to sleep every time I started listening. I've heard some bad voices in my time on audible but this one was so bad I couldn't even concentrate on what she was saying.

Unable to listen due to annoying ring tone

Returning because of the ring that is really uncomfortable every few minutes, please remove it.

Learn to talk and listen to yourself

Very thoughtful book. Some may dislike the accent (English) but I didn’t find it monotone or distracting. I look forward to sitting down with myself and having insightful conversations!

Great book, brief, and with immediate impact.

A great starting point that I wished continued even further. The book's 7 exercises placed throughout the good and concise chapters are fantastic and it provides with immediate relevant self-reflection which can lead to improved perspectives and action.
The book is very clearly read and its pleasent to hear.
If listened to with a pen and paper at hand, it provides a gateway to insights that people's lives benefit from.

Words flowed like water flows in a river.

So deep and gentle, keep listening to the book. Much credit to the performer, too. Enjoyed every bit.
