Easy listen

Easy, quick listen. A few good one-liners. A simpler spin on the mindset explanations that a lot of other self-help, self-development books try to detail in more complex illustrations. Nothing life-changing or brand new, but worth the read/listen due to this easy to understand delivery.

Perfect

The book was easy to listen to, excellent narration and potentially life-changing - all in a couple of hours.
Brilliant.
I have listened to and read a lot of “life-changing” books - this one surpasses them all hands down- yet at the same time puts everything else I have learnt into perspective.
I thoroughly recommend this book and would even go so far as to use the over used cliche - if you only buy one self-actualisation/help book then buy this one. It’s worth it.

Real

I read a lot of self-improvement books - have done so since I was a teenager. Most of them are a waste of time, but every so often one comes along with a few practical suggestions and life gets easier for a bit.

Then comes something like this. No suggestions, no programs, no steps. And yet I think this one is the real thing.

I've known about Syd Banks and the Three Principles for almost 20 years, but I never quite "got it." Michael Neill explains the concept so clearly and with such down to earth examples that "it" comes within reach. Finally.

Pointing us towards our own inner wisdom and innate health.

This book is a short and pleasant listen about the nature of our human experience. It points us towards a direction where we can experience our lives with more clarity and ease of heart - and resulting in better decision-making and flow through life.

This book contains no step-by-step instructions or guides, meaning that there are no techniques for you to learn or manage in order for you to "get there" - instead it points us to the truth of the fact that we already possess all we need in order to live a more fulfilling life, and that we don't need to change in order to feel good and loved.

What this book is pointing toward has for ever changed my life and how I perceive it - and I hope that you will see this for yourself too.

Love
Bjørnar

OMG..... Thank you for this book!!!!!

Would you listen to The Inside-Out Revolution again? Why?

I listened to it yesterday when I bought it.... I am listening again today....
I think we all have an evolutionary path to take to get us to a place of peace. Of comfort... Of confidence of knowing we are on the track we want to be on.... This book just resonated so perfectly with everything I have felt and did not know how to access... I think all of the steps I have taken have guided me to the so so simple and perfect read.... All I can say is thank you thank you thank you... I knew there had to be something this simple.... I just couldn't access it!!!!

What other book might you compare The Inside-Out Revolution to and why?

There are so many but I think first I would say the true story of Dying to be me also lists the simplistic approach. They just coincide with one another.... Just Know you are WHOLE!

What about Michael Neill’s performance did you like?

OMG.... Definitely my favorite audio yet!!!!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It really is that easy and you don't have to buy anything to access it!

Any additional comments?

answered inner knowing and prayers right here! Thank you!!!!!

Waste of time and Audible credit

This book will waste your time and an Audible credit. The overwhelmingly positive reviews are either fake or a response to individuals getting easy answers they desire. It's a lot of "good stuff" but very little substance.

There's about 30 mins of actual content - the rest is just repeated information and flowery descriptions of basic concepts. He'll also regale you with faux humble self-aggrandizing stories of how he has imparted wisdom to others and how they stand in awe of it. Example:

After and flowy monolog about staying in-tune with your inner wisdom, including *insightful* lines like this one "...in the end, that seems to be the core of all our desires. The freedom to be able to enjoy our life and be a contribution to the whole in sickness and in health. For richer or for poorer as long as we can for as long as we're here...." then "I shared all this with my client and we sat in silence enjoying the deeper feeling that comes with contemplating the deeper nature of life. 'That's pretty awesome!' my client said to me. And I had to agree that it was." I laughed out loud when I read this.

I'll give one more except to show how lacking in content the book is. He refers to being "online" as the state of mental clarity and feeling of connection to the universe... "... when we're 'online' we see that any situation can be handled through combination of common sense and insightful action. Any changes to be made become obvious and, while not always easy, remarkably straightforward. Life stops seeming so overwhelming and the world stops seeming like a problem to be solved. So how do we do it? How do we go 'online'? As with so many of the things we've been discussing. There's nothing to do. Being 'online' is our natural state. We don't need to worry about learning or practicing techniques to get or stay there. Because the moment our mind clears, even if it's only for a moment, we automatically return to our factory default."

Parse this statement, and the book is full of them, and you'll realize that he's not saying ANYTHING. It's not deep or insightful. He simply describes an ideal scenario or mental state and then tells you that you've already got what you need.

Personable narration

I enjoyed the abridged narration by the author, Michael Neill, he gave the story a nice personal touch. The performance was short and sweet. Michael delivered the essential message on the principles of thought and our ability to change perceptions from the inside out with one positive thought.

There is something very powerful behind his words.

This book may not sound like it's profound on the surface. If you come in thinking that there may be an answer to living a more extraordinary life, I'd say it's definitely there.

Think of how many how-to books there are now. Think of how many people are reading them are still reading MORE books to achieve something more. Clearly the how-to is not the problem; there is a fundamental understanding that is available in this book--the difference that makes all the difference. Listen to this more than once!

Thought creates the chemical

It is the same theory as the excellent Jamie Smart in his audio book Clarity.

Scientists know we create our world instantly using chemicals.

They know that instant thoughts send instant chemical signals to create our instant feelings.

Incorrect cure:
Change bad people or experiences.

We think the bad people or experiences are sending the bad chemical which give us bad feelings.

CORRECT biological sequence:
Thought sends chemical to mind to create feeling.

The thought = the chemical = the feeling.

Bad thoughts send bad chemicals.
Good thoughts send good chemicals.

Correct cure:
Think new thought.
New thought = new chemical =new feeling.

It is not the other person who causes the bad chemical going to your mind. It is your bad thought that sends the chemical.

Thought can only send chemicals regarding your instant thought.

Future thoughts will send chemicals in the future.

It is all biology. Nothing more complicated than that.

Humans are very good at dealing with things that actuality happen.

Humans are bad at dealing with past thoughts (ruminating) and future thoughts (worrying).

It makes sense for us not to do what we are bad at (ruminating and worrying), and stick to what we are good at (dealing with things that actually happen).

Good mental hygiene = reduce the amount of bad chemicals being sent.

You are feeing your thinking chemicals not feeling your life.

This book and similar books are correct in what they teach.

Mind Blowing!

Would you listen to The Inside-Out Revolution again? Why?

I've listened to this over a dozen times now, Each time I listen something else resonates within me. I spend a lot of time in traffic, which enables me to use that time to improve my mindset, I'm actually disappointed if the motorways are clear. Thanks to this book!

What other book might you compare The Inside-Out Revolution to, and why?

A Bug Free Mind - Andy Shaw
Straight talking, not a lot of Fluffing. To the point, clear instructions - No Guarantees.
What you are trying to achieve is down to You. It's. Your Mind -

Both books share important information, value, and good clear concise teachings.

What about Michael Neill’s performance did you like?

Certainly enthusiastic!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I never pick up a book or listen and limit myself in completing it in a set amount of time, good books are all too soon over, and when that happens I listen again and again so I ingrain the knowledge I want to take in and apply.

Any additional comments?

Great Book!

A good perspective on life, but simplistic

while this was an easy listen, and made a lot of sense to me. it lacks the completeness to help people handle difficulties in life, including those of thinking too much. I feel a sense of ongoing effect after reading this book, but I would recommend something with more tools to apply, such as 'the happiness trap' by Russ Harris, or something similar.

Dribble

Absolutely utter nonsense
I just did not get anything out of it ! Just waffle !!!

I’m trying to work out if it’s me !!! But it was bad.

Also the whispering and talking quietly at times was silly

Might have to come back to it.

Hard to follow & so boring!

I could not follow the book no matter how hard I tried. Not captivating and very confusing at times. Usually a book of this length (2.5 hours) would be devoured in one drive... two weeks it took me! Left no long lasting impression or useful takeaways.

Interesting borrowed ideas, poorly elaborated

Most of the ideas in this book are taken from a guy called Syd Banks. He is heavily quoted throughout this VERY SHORT audio book without substantial additional analysis from the author - Michael Neill.

It's delivered in a fairly entertaining way - this audio book hyper-summarises a lot of his ideas quite well.
For my preference, though, it focuses too much trying to explain away the still-unknown/still-unexplored with mysticism - and there are a number of soundbites that really made me cringe.

You need to have an open mind to take onboard what is being said - but I think there is little critical analysis done on the part of the author, and such a short audiobook risks giving people the wrong takeaway ideas - ie "nothing matters, so don't worry about it" instead of the much more nuanced message that Syd Banks talks about.

I can see the inside-out revolution being very useful for middle-class, well-off listeners - but rather seems to ignore the situation of people suffering genuine hardship. In these situations, it would take a rather Jedi-like mindset to apply the principles in the way that this book suggests - which would make it redundant, anyway.
I think a better book would focus on a more universal examples.

There is very little thought around how to view responsibility or growth in this book - especially for people who are really in a bad place. I think Jordan Petersen - albeit through an extremely bleak lense - tackles a lot of similar underlying concepts here but from analysis of a wider number of sources, and with a suitable amount of explanation - and a humility that says "look. this is the boundary of my understanding on this" - rather than coming up with mysticism to explain away the unknowns.

The Inside Out Revolution complements the Jordan Peterson book quite nicely with a very different style and perspective - but I'm not sure how well it would stand on it's own given how little time is spend properly exploring the ideas.

I'd suggest reading Jordan Peterson, and complementing it with watching Syd Banks on YouTube instead.

I am very interested in the 3 principles but just cannot find any actual guidelines or exercises to allow me to experience them. Again this book, like others, share case studies but no instruction.
